Reviews of “Heroes Reborn’s” latest episode, “The Lion’s Den,” revealed that the show is not successful in keeping the attention of its audience.
The NBC miniseries, which premiered on Sept. 24, appeared to be losing its followers’ excitement as new episode keep on running.
According to A.V. Club , the writers have been focusing on developing the plot rather than giving more meat and highlighting the character and philosophy of the show.
“Unfortunately, while the series keeps adding twists, trying to build momentum through sheer force of will, the show’s central flaw is becoming increasingly clear,” the “Heroes Reborn” review noted. “It’s just not that interesting.”
The report further claimed that “With each passing episode, Heroes Reborn feels more and more fractured,” with episode 5 being described as “disjointed.”
It can be recalled when this season was announced, it was learned that it will only be composed of 13 episodes, and with seven remaining episodes, its writers and the entire production team may need to work double time. And A.V. Club shared that “‘Heroes Reborn’ shouldn’t have time for filler, yet ‘The Lion’s Den’ is full of it.”
However, the review stated that despite being “short in substance,” the fifth episode of “Heroes Reborn” “at least have some style” especially because of its interesting camera works which have improved the dialogue scenes.
A.V. Club cited the low angle, longer shot of Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) and Erica Kravid (Rya Kihlstedt) while they were having a discussion.
In the meantime, Entertainment Monthly commented that “nothing that happens in this episode really matters.”
The site noted that despite the fact that the show is trying to maintain the interest among its followers, its writers are allegedly not giving “too much effort into the really interesting characters like Miko Otomo (Kiki Sukezane), Ren Shimosawa (Toru Uchikado) and Carlos Gutierrez (Ryan Guzman).”
