The two driving forces behind TVs â€œHeroesâ€ have left the building.
And it isnâ€™t even a question of whether they were pushed orleft voluntarily â€“ they indeed were booted.
According to the trades, co-exec producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb were fired by NBC because the network was becoming increasingly disappointed with the creative direction the show (theyâ€™re not the only ones) was taking.
Alexander and Loeb had been working with Tim Kring, the creator of â€œHeroesâ€, since the 80s when they collaborated on the sequel clunker â€œTeen Wolf Tooâ€.
I canâ€™t help but agree with NBCâ€™s decision to ax Loeb and Alexander. The show really has gone off on some unexplainable mind-numbing tangent the last couple of seasons â€“ and from what I can tell, the rest of this season, the third, seems to be pretty much of the same ilk. Itâ€™s not exactly a boring show, but itâ€™s not exactly gripping either â€“ and considering how good the original pilot was, thatâ€™s a damn shame. Can someone put this ship back on course?
