Heroes should have gotten a spike in its rating this week as CBS' comedy block has taken its time out. The show has been a DVR hit, nonetheless. But I guess fewer people should have pushed the record button this time.
And yes, I was actually satisfied with this offering. We had some cool heroes-using-their powers show. Jeremy the new hero involuntarily or voluntarily uses his power again to kill a protester only to get killed by a cop. Tracy is lured by Samuel into joining the carnival group. And the ending where Samuel exacts his revenge by pushing the police station into the ground was pretty cool.
Matt Parkman's storyline was OK, though I wasn't entirely thrilled at drinking too much to kill Sylar part, I mean that sounded ridiculous. Claire's track, much like the Saw franchise was good. The gay storyline seems a little too forced, and I'm hoping they put an end to it. I hope they kill Madeline Zima -she is like the most annoying person on the show.
Fine episode overall.
