Best Week Ever reports on an interview with Heroes creater Tim Kring:
Kring regrets sticking Claire (Hayden Panettiere) with a super-dud boyfriend and forcing Hiro to moon over a cutesy princess. ”I’ve seen more convincing romances on TV,” he admits. ”In retrospect, I don’t think romance is a natural fit for us.”
So why did that horrible scene where flying boy takes Clair up into the sky happen? Old Superman was more convincing than that. Poor Hiro though 😦 He needed some feudal Japan action.
