Who should die on 'Heroes'?

151423__mohinder_lIn TV Guide‘s latest story on Heroes, series creator and executive producer Tim Kring reveals that a regular character, "someone who has been with the show from the very beginning," will pay the ultimate price during February sweeps. And while I’ll be shocked (and shaken) if he’s planning to off one of my favorites (like Hiro or Nathan or Micah), there’s one player in particular whose death would be cause for celebration — the waffling, whiny Mohinder Suresh (he of the ludicrous dream sequences), who is coincidentally portrayed by the cast’s most wooden actor, Sendhil Ramamurthy (pictured)

Every time the guy pops up on my screen, I recall the words of my colleague Dawnie Walton: "Someone is Mo-hindering my ability to enjoy the show!" Seriously, one minute Mohinder is dropping everything to head to America and complete his father’s work, the next he’s decided it’s all a bunch of bunk. He’s supposedly paranoid about keeping the heroes’ identities out of the wrong hands, and yet he keeps a list of their names and a map of their whereabouts in an apartment that might as well be dubbed Break-in Central. The only constant is his droning, insipid voice-over narration. Plus, with the way Ramamurthy delivers his lines like he’s the third banana in a bad high-school production, I always find myself drifting off to the happy place during Mohinder’s scenes. So yes, in the Heroes‘ death pool, the man has got my vote. Are you with me? Or if you were Tim Kring, would you choose to exterminate a different character?

    Mohinder is just fine. I would eliminate the psychic painter Isaac Mendez. And it will be funny if he doesn’t see it coming!

  • Dominique L.

    But he is massively hot! That kinda helps me ignore his acting…

    Right on Slezak!! Mohinder is soooooo booooring. His voice puts me to sleep. He is quite nice to look at, but a little snapshot of him in the corner of the screen would have as much personality and wouldn’t interrupt the enjoyment factor. Kill him off!!

  • Brad

    I like the show, but A LOT of the acting is bad!
    Kill Micah…PLEASE! The way he talks and acts is so annoying for a 5 year old.

  • Slammy

    The fat cop has to go. He bores me. Course he wasn’t on at the very beginning so we know it’s not him.
    By the way, the only storyline more tedious than Mohinder’s is the whole when-will-Nathan-embrace-his-powers bit. Just fry already, frying man.

    Since Mohinder is the Professor X of the group (albeit a horrible version), it would seem weird to kill him off. Though if Sylar were to mentally tear the flesh off of him in bullet-time, um, that would exactly depress me.

  • Dre

    I agree wholeheartedly Slezak! I love Heroes but I always tune out during Mohinder’s scenes, he’s so boring.

  • Mohan

    Mohinder and Milo should go — I was so excited to see a South Asian character at the centre of the show, but man this guy is one terrible actor. The only time Milo/Jesse and Mohinder come to life is in their scenes togather…. maybe it would work if they made them a couple! They *do* look hot together…

    As a nonfan (have watched it, and it’s fine for what it is, but not my cup of tea), I believe he will Peter’s love interest (the black woman). This will continue to help push Peter’s brother to start using his powers.

  • paige

    yea mohinder is booooooooooring! and isaac is disgusting. please keep your shirt on…

  • Stef

    Ouch that was harsh! I don’t think he’s a bad actor. It is true that his storyline is the most boring, but I thought it picked up last week. I would eliminate Simone. She doesn’t seem to add anything to the show really.

    While I agree that Mo is a bad character I was surprised when Is aw the actor on Leno last week and found out he is from Chicago and almost has a Chicago accent.
    His chracter is uneeded though

  • bburlew

    Simone-boring, boring, boring, kill her off so Peter and Isaac can hook up

  • Lane

    Wow, that caught me by surprise. I always enjoy Mohinder’s voice over. In fact, it’s one of my favorite parts of the show…

  • AJH

    Ha ha Jakeem! Funny comment! :-)
    As for who will die… Will it even resonate with us, as the show keeps adding more (and more) characters and further deepens its mythology? We should be more concerned the whole darn thing doesn’t crash and burn.
