Y'know, in retrospect, some of the episode should have been less surprising given the title. I mean, a bit more than usual.

But man: LOL @ Sylar and Noah. Except the not-so-funny part at the end, but still. they're really letting Zach have fun this year and it's amazing.

It looks like even with his new advantage, Peter is still kind of an idiot, because it almost look like his attempts to change the future are slotting it into place. Which is weird, because that's not how Heroes usually does it's time travel stories, but then real comics aren't terribly consistent themselves, are they?

OMG ALI LARTER'S SUNGLASSES. If I can remember, I'm nominating them for an inanimate object Tubey.

It's almost like the writers invented Tracy just to apoligize for the missteps with Niki. Except for the part where they drop Monica from the series to do it. Fuuuuuuck that.

Um. Man, Molly has a way of getting canon crackships for parents, doesn't she?

Claire, what is wrong with you? I mean, way to be proactive, but now you're just stupidly bullheaded.

CRIS ROSE ILU

AHAHAHA THE WRITERS ASS-PULL JUSTIFICATION FOR ADAM'S FATE ACTUALLY WORKED!

Amazing episode full of LOLtastic weirdness: Heroes at it's best.

(And that's not getting into some of the effects shots. My Pasdar is pastede on yay)

Well, the season certainly continues apace. Almost ahead of pace, really - things that would have been at least quarter-season arcs in a lot of shows (and I feel like even Heroes, in the past) are already resolving and moving on.

Granted, a lot of this is, I think, the combined effect of "go faster because Volume Two dragged" and "go faster because the strike created MASSIVE HIATUS and we don't want people to wait."

Unfortunately, no word on where Linderman came from, but I have hope it won't be too long.

Parkman's arc went absolutely nowhere, but at least it lasted, like, all of three minutes this episode, so that can be forgiven.

Better him than whatever it is that Mohinder has become. He was out-argued by Maya last week, people, we need small doses.

Sylar is... this will either go incredibly well, or die an entertainingly over-the-top, campy, narmtastic death, so I guess I'm okay with it either way. (And I'm not even talking about the family tree part.) The object history power is going to come into play somewhere (I thought it was going to be proving his lineage, but I guess not). Blatant Checkov setup.

I'm giving Tracy's arc breathing room for usefulness here, now that A) she's emphatically not Niki and B) they gave that info to us already. Also, Ali Larter is rocking the shit out of it. That said, we get our likely only stop by New Orleans this year and no Monica? SHENANIGANS. EPIC SHENANIGANS.

Other stuff happened. I liked it. It's technically probably as mindblowingly cracktastic as last eek, but I adapted already.

Also: Hiro continues to be FAILsauce, but at least it's consistent and intentional to the storyline, unlike some other characters' past/present stupid.



ONE MORE, VERY IMPORTANT THING: IF SANDRA DOESN'T GET TO KICK MEREDITH'S ASS AS WE ALL KNOW SHE CAN AND WANTS TO, HEADS WILL ROLL.

I HAD A WELL-REASONED POST. I SWEAR TO GOD I DID. BUT THEN ANGELA FUCKED IT OVER WITH NAUGHT BUT FEW WORDS WTF.

Lets see what I can salvage from my brain...

Nope, no Linderman of my own, sadly. He's made of awesome, even when imaginary.

No sudden freezing powers, either. And like I said before - even when there's no reason for her presence other than the PTB not having the balls to fire Ali Larter, she will sell the hell out of whatever you give her. And what she's been given is making excellent use of her, even though, y'know, she shouldn't be there.

Like Mohinder's Brundlefication, JESUS.

Although I really didn't get the SENDHIL IS HOTTER THAN THE SUUUUUUUUN thing going round the Heroes fangirldom (this is not the same as fandom; don't be fooled) until he was Spidey-ing it up for Maya. Who still epically fails with her crushes, BTW.

And now we find out that nope, Future Peter is still exactly as idiotic as before. He and Matt need to get on that patent. Talking to a turtle, indeed.

Oh, and everyone involved in The Angela-Elle scene gets five billion points (THEIR HATESEX WOULD BE SO EPIC)

Meredith! WTF? ...ILU.

Hiro, Ando, Speedster... you continue the trend of Hiro being the least interesting story, but taken out of Heroes context, you would be fascinating, I swear! You just comparatively bore, not inherently! (I would like for speedster to get some characterization to go along with that speed, though.)

Oh, and the fireguy has Azula-blue flames! Too bad he doesn't have the nails to go with.

BUT MOSTLY WTF ANGELA AND SYLAR. WTF.

(Thank God this show is finally getting the WE LOVE ANGELA. MORE CHRISTINE ROSE. YESSSSSSSSS.)

Unlike most of my notes on TV, Heroes is not going to be getting spoiler-cut, because I'm actually watching it after it's first US airing, and I define spoilers by where I live because it's convenient. I won't be warning on future posts.

Also, I'm actually taking a break between the episodes to post my thoughts on the first episode while I've only seen the one, because it's more authentic to the serial nature of he show (especially with the fifteen minutes of episode-ending cliffhangery scenes, jesus christ)

On Sylar and Claire: Holy crap did he cat-and-mouse her and boy was it awesome. Season Two Sylar was worth the (I'm assuming strike-induced) pointlessness, just for this one episode so far. I mean, he TKs and entire table to block a door from another room and Claire thinks running a chain round some handles won't keep him unhinging the doors entirely with his brain? And hen he didn't - not because he couldn't, but because it was more fun that way. He's finally starting to build a truly adversarial character, rather than just villainy! It's great! And "that's disgusting."? EPIC WIN.

Matt... no wonder you've always lacked initiative and forethought. When you use it, it gets you banished to the desert.

Peter, whatver happened to you to make you four-years-from-now-competent had better happen to you very soon, because now that I've seen you be pretty much everything you aren't? I like it. Future Claire can come too.

ANGELA <<<<<<<<<<3!

Katio, you know your son well. Obviously, you meant for something to happen to this formula once it escaped, or else you've inherited Peter's stupid.

Good Nathan is so fucking scary. That's probably all I'll have to say about that for a while.

I'd read spoilers from advance showings. How the hell did I forget entirely about Linderman?

ANDO. ANDO, YOU NEED TO HAVE HADOUKEN'D HIRO SO LONG AGO. WHY DID YOU ONLY DO IT IN THE FUTURE?

If the fast girl is so fast that she can move normal-speed in Hiro's frozen-time, how is she making the sound of her voice travel at mach MACH, for it to reach Hiro as though it were also immune to the freeze?

MAYA! YOU HAVE A REASON FOR EXISTING! Next time you see Mohinder, tears-of-evil him just for being super stupid, ok? (Seriously. Mohinder didn't need to shoot up; his powers were idiocy and,of late, asshattery)

Am I forgetting anyone? Oh, right. What's-her-face, the nth personality of Niki, who only exists because the show doesn't have the balls to fire Ali Larter after her characters have run their course. I mean, she's gorgeous, and she'll validate he hell out of whatever you throw at her through her acting, but THERE IS NO REASON FOR HER TO BE THERE.





ONE MORE THING: If this is the second coming, WHO THE HELL IS JESUS, HERE? Failing any sufficient answer from the show, I'm going to go with Sylar.

Today, I realized just how much of a nerd I am. See, the thing I'm still geeking out most about from the Heroes finale? Not anything that happened character- or plot-wise, but something that lies solely in the editing.

Behind the cut, just in case )

ZOMG. ARI. WHEN YOU GET TO THIS EPISODE. YOU HAVE NO IDEA. FOR SERIOUS. EXCEPT FOR THE LAME-O (BUT STILL EXPECTED) RESOLUTION TO LAST EP'S CLIFFHANGER IN THE FIRST THREE SECONDS, THIS IS THE MOST KICK-ASS, AMAZING HOUR OF TELEVISION YOU WILL EVER WITNESS.

AND IT SETS UP FOR AN EVEN BETTER TWO-HOUR FINALE HOFUCK.

So, I'm catching up with Heroes, and while I had intended to pace myself to take most of the hiatus, I totally failed, 'cause my next episode is Family Man.

Which, by the way, I'm a bit apprehensive about watching. Not because I think it's overhyped or anything, but because I know it is going to be made of complete and total WIN, and after that, there's just one more episode to fill the rest of hiatus, and then GAH I HAVE TO WAIT LESS TIME THAN EVERYONE ELSE BUT I STILL HAVE TO WAIT AND GAH.

GAH.

(Also: WTF, Sylar, don't be so HOT.)
