I loved the show. I loved all of it. But this certainly rang true for me. The part that got so frustrating was watching the team try and try to write Sylar's character in a compelling way, and go completely off the rails every other week. There was just no thread.
"If you end up creating bad guys cooler than your good guys, let them ride. Don’t make them into heroes. Zachary Quinto’s Sylar is an excellent example of this formula gone wrong. If you start off a show with your primary madman chopping off the heads of cheerleaders, it’s exceedingly hard to flip him into a savior of mankind, even if he is the show’s most magnetic personality.
