Heroes: A villain-ous downfall

It's a little depressing to me, but this year's batch of Heroes are turning out to be duds of lamely epic proportions. Even the so called "Villains," which are the focus of this chapter in the story, seem to be coming up a bit short on the incredo-meter. They're like caricatures of bad guys that my friends and I made up on the grade five recesses. If it wasn't for Zachary Quinto as Sylar, this third, depressing season wouldn't even be worth talking about.
