  • Stereotyping and other problems

    So. A boy disappears in the custody of a southern policeman, then later shows up battered to death on a road, and nobody questions the policeman. Because everybody knows southern sheriffs are fascists who can get away with anything, right? Can we say stereotype?

    Matt is so stupid. The possibility that Sylar was faking his weakness, in order to trick Matt into drinking himself into a stupor, occurred to me immediately.

    That sorority-hazing subplot went nowhere. The writers couldn't make up their minds whether it would be about horrors or about Claire and Gretchen talking. The other two girls kept coming and going depending on what the plot needed. About the only clever part there was when Claire, impaled on a wall, calmly remarks "I could use a little help here..." A loser of an episode. But it will be good to see Charley again next week.
