Dear Hero's People:

Alright, lets get this out of the way. We all know you're ripping off X-men. So far I've been cool with it because It's kind of like an homage to the original in taking something old and making it something new. I think the rest of the US has been on your side too we even let you chock the thing full of commercials and add a horribly stupid catch-phrase.

But this Monday you did not deliver. You did not live up to the hype and the hype was your own hype. You cheaped out on potentially brilliant plot moments, you drew out unimportant details and the cracks in the series started to show.

crack one: You don't really know where you're going

crack two: You're trying to stretch out what's there just to fill the space

crack three: You're losing cohesion. Not everyone needs drama and when we lost Hiro to his moral high ground we lost the most palatable ingredient.

crack four: Now you have to spend the next episode going backwards and there's nothing that screams "what now?" more than backtracking.

crack five: You have not yet hired me as a writer. I'm good. You'll see.
