Don’t get me wrong, I’m still completely addicted to watching Heroes, and it is the show I watch most immediately after it is recorded. But that behavior is a mixture of habit and hope. Prior to this year, and I even include last fall in this assessment, Heroes was my favorite show.
Not so this year, though it’s not simply that Heroes seems to have lost its way. It also seems that some other shows have stepped it up a bit — in particular, Lost. I think this is probably the best season of Lost since they opened the hatch — or maybe better.
Here are some other shows that I’m currently enjoying more than Heroes:
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Lie to Me
That list is actually shorter than I expected, but there are some other shows, like Chuck and Dollhouse, that are pretty even with Heroes. And given the rate at which Dollhouse has been getting better, it’ll probably make the list in the next week or two.
