My thoughts on Heroes S2 opener:



- When I heard Mohinder talking about a plague that targets supers, I was like, "Oh fuck. The same old Vampire LARP plotline all over again!"
- OK who else thought that the MAYA character was going to have a special power that was like... shooting knives out of her hoo-hoo? I forgot for a moment this isn't anime.
- Don't look at the eclipse you moron!
- Who is that actor playing Kensei? I can't find him on imdb.
- I am so overjoyed to see Parkman hale and healthy. But he shouldn't let a magic little girl push him around like that.
- "And you and I will bring this whole Company down." Why on EARTH would he say that over a regular cell phone?
- "I never thought it would be you" or whatever Takei says. You know what? Fuck that. That's a lame trick.
- I gotta say, I like Nathan way better scruffy.
- Next time on: I don't know if I can sit through another fucking season where Sylar is the bad guy. Bleah.

and finally:

Peter, vulnerable, tied up in a crate and shorn: Even hotter!!! Who knew!!!

edit: Oh yeah - and how come no one's like "where is Sylar's body?"

Sylar is an awesome bad guy. He has this cheesy creepy coolness going on.

He's TOO awesome as a bad guy. I don't like to actually have to worry that my heroes are going to fail. Yes, my emotional development was arrrested at about age 9.

I KNOW!!! I was talking back to the screen at that point.

Nathan with a beard looks like Steve Carell in "Little Miss Sunshine."

...And of course we knew Peter was somehow magically not dead, but I was still disappointed to see him so soon, especially naked and amnesiac just like Angel in "Buffy." Does that mean that he was inexplicably yanked out of hell too?

Honestly, Milo Ventimiglia is the top reason I enjoy the show, so if they waited too long they would have lost me. I didn't watch Angelor mostly didn't watch Buffy so I didn't know about the similarity!

Yeah... it's been done!

(When I used to be a vampire LARPer (*SIGH*) we would have a disease-that-targets-vampires plot at least twice a year, it seemed.)

Journeyman looks like a modern-day Quantum Leap..

It is also a copy of Dead Zone. I loved that show.

It made me laugh when I saw what you posted about the eclipse. That's *just* what I said.

We're curious to see if Maya's power involves some sonic element.

I much prefer Peter's new haircut.

I want to know what Mama Petrelli's power was/is.
snidegrrl
Sep. 25th, 2007 03:16 pm (UTC)
Agreed re: Mama Petrelli. Ditto for Hiro's dad - if we know what his power is (aside from apparently living for over 300 years) then I missed it.

Pretty sure Sylar isn't the main bad guy - it's going to be whomever is haunting the radar girl.

Sylar's actor is only on board for half the eps this season before he leaves to do the new Star Trek movie.

I naively assumed that Sylar *was* the person haunting the radar girl. :) But your news is music to my ears.

At first when I saw Kensei, I thought "Neil Patrick Harris? Doogie's Kensei?" :)

As to the new bad guy, we got a very brief mention of him in the last ep of first season when they found Molly. I wonder how nightmarish he's going to be and if he'll make Sylar seem like a boy scout.

Sep. 25th, 2007 03:41 pm (UTC)
My first thought on Kensei was "that dude looks like Simon Collins". :)

Yeah, the stuff about the other bad guy is coming back to me now. If he's that bad, they will lose my interest quickly.

- "And you and I will bring this whole Company down." Why on EARTH would he say that over a regular cell phone?

Because they have an ally who we have only briefly seen who can guarantee electric security.

No guarantee that this is so, but said ally exists, is well documented, and has an anti-company agenda, and it would seem foolish of them not to incorporate that.

Also, I think Pasdar looks fantastic scruffy, but the beard is almost comical in its thickness.

And personally, my objection to the continued presence of Sylar is that, as awesomely Neal Stephonson-esque as his core power is, his story had a nice arc and conclusion. What's left is a pretty boring villain. Which is why, to be frank, I suspect that Sylar's arc will be less villainous this time around. Maybe not redemption, but at the very least, something a little more sophisticated. Alternately, he's get killed three episodes in to show that the real bad villain is -really- bad.

This is my _hope_. We'll see.

Exactly. That is definitely how I feel.

For the first part of the show, I also had to remind myself that I wasn't watching another episode of The 4400. Despite the flaws, by the end of the episode I was left wanting more so I'll be back next week.

I really liked David Anders when he played Sark on Alias and it's great that he's making over to Heroes.

And a hearty second on your comment about Peter, though don't forget to include "shirtless" in your description. Yum!

A great number of questions being asked in this thread can actually be answered at the Heroes Graphic Novel site:

http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/novels_library.shtml

I will reference certain issues when necessary.^_^

- OK who else thought that the MAYA character was going to have a special power that was like... shooting knives out of her hoo-hoo? I forgot for a moment this isn't anime.

For Example: http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/index.shtml?novel=51

- Don't look at the eclipse you moron!

Actually, I was thinking that myself. "Man, I hope Hiro doesn't go blind!"

- I am so overjoyed to see Parkman hale and healthy. But he shouldn't let a magic little girl push him around like that.

I wouldn't call it getting pushed around, I'd more say it's him giving a concession until she's in a more talkative mood. He was rather ham handed when he brought it up earlier.

- Next time on: I don't know if I can sit through another fucking season where Sylar is the bad guy. Bleah.

Think it would be too much to ask that Sylar actually becomes, if not a good guy, then an anti-Hero this season? Sort of a "I'm not a good guy, but I gotta help wipe this new baddie out so I'm on their side for now!" kind of deal.

Oh yeah - and how come no one's like "where is Sylar's body?"

After Mohinder mentioned that "Sylar was taken out" or whatever he said, I distinctly saw a sly, "We know something you don't" look on Stephen Tobolowsky's face.

Matt is not an effective communicator, and is terrible at resolving interpersonal problems. I guess they are really good at maintaining that.
