Heroes Round Table: One of Us, One of Them

at . Comments

Welcome to our 13th Heroes Round Table.

While fans of the show gather in the Timex: I gotta tell you, I did not miss him from last week's episode. And, realistically, I don't think I'd miss him from the show. Do what you gotta do to get rid of him, writers.

What was Claire's birth mom thinking?!?
Timex: She must have just watched "How to Lose Biological Daughters & Alienate People."

A. Hiro: I have no idea. But what was HRG doing entrusting his family to a woman that had already proven to be irresponsible and whose sole power involved the making of fire?

Milover: Can't say I approve of the torture... but at least fire-starting mom was trying to relate to Claire and assist her with her issues. Useless, real mom is simply an enabler, as proven by her approval of Claire's so-called sleepover.

Which do you prefer: Evil Sylar or Good Sylar?
Milover: As long as we have villains to battle, I'm okay with a Good Sylar. And, besides, at least Good Sylar seems to have a nasty side still. This is going to be one hell of a fun season!

Timex: I don't think there are Good and Evil Sylars. In the end, this season will show that all characters have shades of grey to them.

A. Hiro: Good Sylar. The concept of "good" is relative, of course, but my favorite development of the season - by far - is idea that various Heroes might be switching sides and truly taking the show in a new direction.

Is Hiro, or Ando, more to blame for their current strife?
A. Hiro: Hiro! Look, it was admirable in the first season when he sought a life with meaning outside his company's cubicle; same for season two when he sacrificed his own heart in order to take on the role of Kensei. The guy was being selfless throughout. Now, though, Hiro is so desperate for a quest that he's endangering the world and disobeying his father's orders. Get a new hobby, man.

Milover: Hiro. Robin may be useless, but Batman was at least keen enough to always make him feel wanted.

Timex: Ando. I could never blame Hiro for anything. I can't believe Ando knocked the Haitian out over the head. Does he realize he's messing with the company? Enjoy Level Five, boys. You can thank Ando for that one.

Mohinder??? Crap...we do not neeeed him at all...the formula is out there and if nothing else, Hiro can time hop into it sooner or later...and as far as Mohinder goes, his research hasn't been all that impressive...he screwed up the formula and tried it on himself (how many brainiacs would do that?)...he also wasn't a lot of help to Molly either...and the man has been on every side available over the last three episodes...goodbye Mohinder... And Claire...I am sorry, but I am not buying this "bad" Claire going down the dark road because she can't feel pain and has been betrayed, blah, blah, blah...her charm in the first two seasons was her innocence. Period. That was her strength as a character. She's not developed enough, and certainly hasn't seen enough of life to become the "bad-ass." Sheesh! Claire is the character that should be gullible and be capable of being duped by different sides because of her youth and innocence... Parkman's the other character that has the real potential to be a "bad" guy because he's working for what he sees as right, and I think his character is capable of throwing in with the "bad" guys because he may see all the heroes out there as a chaos factor and want to control it...he could be cool if he was a more prominent character and went back to dancing that line more often. Hiro is also making me mad this season...he followed his super hero code in the first two seasons (the second season I am trying to forget most of, however), and now he is wavering...and I don't buy it--even the quasi stabbing of Ando...no, it went against his comic book creed...Hiro IS all about being a super hero in the purest sense, and that's part of his charm--he won't violate that code for Ando or anyone else, even if it means more problems or even possibly his destruction--Hiro would trust that his "comic book code/ethics" would see him through any situation no matter how bad it got. Whew. Alright...now Kring, start getting back to basics and do what the show did right the first season!


You kill mohinder and I'll kill you all! His voice makes me laugh. And we need him for the development of the formula because he is the only one who knows anything about it, and we need to see if he stops. If not, then he can die...as long as he still does the narrating


They might as well kill mohinder off the show! who actually switches on their telly to watch heroes for him?


Just a quick correction milover. The adoptive mom would have never let Claire go on the sleepover. That was the point of the whole scene. Real mom was telling adoptive mom that if you hold onto them too tight...they rebel. Adoptive mom shot down that philosophy...but when Claire asked about the sleepover...she decided to take the advice and let her go. That was the entire signifigance of the scene. And yes; Those scenes were meaningless. Does Claire's real mom have the ability to breathe without oxygen too?
