  • Painting the future

    8.5
    Heroes' season opener was a scruffy dollop of paint. But in this second episode, writer and series creator Tim Kring gets out a straw and starts blowing threads of paint across the canvas. And in what delicious directions the paint flows: the reveal that /only/ Nathan Petrelli can see Linderman; the new Ali Larter character and her CGI-heavy power; the Hiro/Ando/Daphne tryst; the side effects of Mohinder’s drug; and the African encounter between Parkman and a future-painting shaman. Throw in the revelation that Sylar is actually a Petrelli (he does look like the brothers) and suddenly the paint's colour becomes discernible.

    Am I sold? Not quite yet. The writers have a lot of rebuilding ahead. And from what I caught of Heroes Unmasked, there's a chance they'll overdo the action and the effects and underdo the unravelling mystery. But I'm definitely looking forward to the next episode.
