NBC (ended 2010)
|it went to being present day as soon as they closed the boot and it went to showing the wake. the only stuff that was "86 hours ago" was just that quick bit of Peter meeting Noah, seeing Nathan's dead body and talking about setting it up so it looked like he died in a plane crash.|
That's one thing I don't understand, how did peter fake the crash? As far as I know, dead people can't fly planes, and I'm sure that if he parachuted out of it before the crash a few people would see him. I guess he "hatian-ed" them.
It's clear now that Heroes will struggle because there seem to be three factions:
Those who complain that this season won't be as good as Season 1 (time to move on from those thoughts, in my opinion)
Those who enjoy character development (if it's obvious enough: rmantic scenes, fighting, death, etc.)
Those who enjoy more action and less character development (Peter vs. Sylar fights, Noah interogations, etc)
We can't get our cake and eat it too.
I did enjoy Upon this Rock, a little more than Let it Bleed.
I thought upon this rock did give us more in depth about Samuel and his 'good intentions' by his attempt to gather everyone.
In fact in Let in Bleed it begins with a flashback (86 hours) but was there ever a moment when the episode was "Present Day?" or was the entire episode a flashback?
On a side note, nice to hear West's name again... although not actually seeing him.
Claire's anger and bitterness now can only be calmed by Peter, I predict she'll go 'over the edge' soon and who can stop her?
Sylar is usually the wild card. I can never tell if he wants to 'feed' or learn more about himself.
I'm hoping for a great finale, but only time will tell.
I have always figured that the writers would continue to shove Claire down people's throats, but I didn't see it being more than usual as it is unnecessarily becoming.
That said, someone recently mentioned "character development." THERE IS NOBODY ON THIS PLANET WHO CAN CONVINCE ME THAT CLAIRE HAS HAD ANY SIGNIFICANT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! I mean, I've waited for it from season to season. Guess what happened? Still the same Claire.
|i was just thinking that being killed by a hitman would draw attention (the way he had dissappeared had drawn attention). So rather than unnecessarily risk any secrets being exposed Millie thought Angela used that to explain what happened. or something like that.|
I find it hard to believe that after being dangerously on the verge of cancellation, Heroes pulls out yet another two hours of filler(less) junk. Summary: Samuel is evil, Sylar strips, Sylar steals Lydia's ability, Claire whines over how everyone's lying to her, Peter struggles after "Nathan"'s death, and Hiro's brain's turned into a slushie. AGAIN. Sylar is after Claire. AGAIN. Eyeroll.
Claire is on the verge of sinking to the level of Maya. This close. Whining, crying over how everyone's lying to her, yet being completely stupid towards Samuel. I actually wanted to smack her at how stupid she was being.
And Hiro's mind? Gone. AGAIN. Didn't work in Volume 3, doesn't work now. Al it does is slow down the action and have something we already know: Ando and Hiro will save Mohinder. We know they'll do it. We had the flashforward in the Fifth Stage? Hiro's mind being a slushie DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm really not sure why Sylar is after Claire. Unless he has a little Petrelli fetish that hasn't been cured. Don't want to think about that too much.
No sign of Tracey. I got the feeling she's going to be slighted for the rest of the season. AGAIN.
Sigh. Okay. Done complaining. I will move on to the positives.
Best: Samuel OWNING Sylar. That little sandstorm he kicked up? And Sylar being shredded down to the skull? Priceless. And I loved that he admitted to Sylar he's not a good guy. At least he's being honest with himself. At least he's not delusional or completely.
Emma having a siren call? Ooooooo. Intriguing. And Peter's warning via Angela that she's going to kill thousands of people. Sound be something interesting next week.
Great to see Lauren. I like her. If Heroes gets a season five, can she stay? Please? Also nice to see Edgar.
At least Nathan and Adrian Pasdar got a nice little send-off. I will miss him. The show's already not the same without him. And Peter coping with the loss of his brother? Tragic. Without his brother, he truly is lost, wondering what to do, where to go. Of course, we all know he will go after Sylar eventually. That's the only logical way to go. I just wish they'd hurry it up.
I liked the mention of West. It would have been nice if he'd have a cameo but oh well. Too late for that.
Calm down. I meant no ill will towards the show itself. I love the show, I wouldn't be around right now if I didn't. But this episode(s) just really irritated me. It did. That's just how I feel. It's my opinion. I have my opinion, you have yours. It's just the way it is. I haven't liked every single episode of Heroes. And when I don't like an episode, I say so, for whatever it's worth. And I did have a list of positives.
What irritated me the most about these episodes was because Heroes is dangerously on the verge of cancellation (Nielsen ratings for the doubles were 4.9. Aside from CW, I doubt most networks have that kind of patience for that low of ratings), this season could be the last, and since this was the only week they had free from competeting against House or now Fringe, they really needed a shot in ratings, they go and pull a two-hour filler that didn't really serve a lot of point. Either they are REALLY confident they are getting renewed or they have a massive deathwish. And again, this is just my opinion. You are free to think otherwise.
HEY. STOP COMPLAINING. THERE'S NO BASIS FOR IT.
|Give the show a chance. Jeesh.|
I mean hey, im with you. I thought the episodes weren't horrible. They were a bit slow yes..and I would've liked to have seen claire's reaction to nathan's murder...but nope.
I honestly don't think claire is that bad this season..i dont see how she was wining or anything in the episodes..shes at the carnival...shes figuring out that things with samuel aren't right. and just cuz she believed samuel about his intentions after killing his brother doesn't mean shes any mor stupid than any other character on the show. Plus i mean..what samuel said was true...Joseph did turn him over to the government..and if the government would've came they would've had a free for all with all the carnies.
I did NOT hate these episodes..i was looking for a bit more though which clearly...everyone agrees with.
