Upon this Rock
Seems like December took forever to pass. Can't wait for tonight's two-hour return.
I've enjoyed this season so far, and am hoping the action really ramps up in the second half.
Yeah I am pretty excited too. I will be hooked to my TV for two hours Nice!!!!! I hope I don’t get disappointed
I can't wait. A double episode. It sounds too good to be true!
No surprise, this website has hacked away at this double episode. I agree that it wasn't a great episode -- certainly not what it could have been -- but it wasn't all bad.
I rather enjoyed the Hiro/Ando scenes, even if they did have an element of the 1960s Batman TV series to them, what with Ando making his deductions based on rather vague pop culture references made by the muddled Hiro. However, I enjoyed the mixing of those pop culture references. What disappointed me is that we have to wait to see them get to Florida to get Mohinder back (for what will surely be another short stint as I believe he is leaving the show). It would have been nice to see some Parkman and Tracy. No doubt, they could have and should have been included in the scenes of Nathan's funeral/wake. That would have a been a good time to have Parkman, Peter, Claire and Tracy together to perhaps start planning their version of The Company, or reasonable facsimile thereof, to take on the Carnies.
I enjoyed the return of Edgar, but was hoping he would team up with HRG (one of us, one of them) in an effort to go after Samuel. That Edgar has a desire to rejoin the carnival plays into Lauren's theory about the carnival being like a cult. Doyle and Eli are doing their parts to that end as well.
I guess if I have any concerns about the direction the show is taking it's this: we have had some great TV watching Samuel move his pieces around and position himself to make his move. What we haven't seen is any corresponding moves from the other side that will respond to whatever Samuel is planning to do.
I will say that Samuel's grand plan better not be just to impress this Vanessa girl. How cheesy would that be? Don't try to humanize him now. Can't it just be left that he is power hungry and evil? It would be a shame if they messed with what has been the best character this season.
The show is underutilizing Peter. With Nathan gone, the expectation should be that Peter will step up to play a leadership role. This episode was a wasted opportunity to have that happen.
I have enjoyed this season so far, but it's at the point where things have to start happening. The pace must pick up starting with next week's episode. The parallels to S1 have been rather apparent for much of this season, and it's about now where everybody's storylines have to start moving towards the same point -- in S1 it was to Kirby plaza; perhaps now it can be into factions that will square off, or towards the newly-created meadow where Samuel is going to build his community of people with abilities.
Here's my guess for what it's worth. Given the way Hiro was babbling about the importance of rescuing Mohinder, the good doctor is going to play a pivotal role in bringing together those who will oppose Samuel, and he will get killed in the process of doing so.
I have to say, I am dissapointed with the return of Heroes. I thought the first episode was all fine but the second one, it just seems to be missing something. Maybe its the fact that Sylar isn't evil enough. Why would he be broken?! He's all back together and should go on a killing spree like Sylar of old. Or is it his new found empathic abilitiy making him "feel" ?As for Peter, he's acting in a very illogical (badly written?) way and appears very weak in these two episodes. It's about time he went back in time (with hiro) and got his old empathic mimicry back from his old self - charged up on powers and went to kick some butt. He seems to have come down a notch during the break- when he faced up to Nylar with the Haitains ability I thought he'd finally started taking responsibility! Perhaps not.
HRG also seems off - and oddly trusting - and this woman is screwing with his head. Does she/he really think the carnival can be disbanded and people "reintergrated" into society?
Hopefully it will improve. I'd hate to quit watching it after 3.5 seasons.
The only big plus was the return of the Ando / Hiro partnership. A bit annoying they've had make Hiro turn into a kid again tho (of sorts). I think its time we had "bad ass" Hiro from the future!
The ONLY thing that impressed me in these two episodes was the great chemistry that Claire and Peter share together. Having these two in the same scenes ACTUALLY makes me feel that claire is some what neccessary to the show. Peters interaction with everyone is great though. I found it disappointing that once again Hiro is back to his Babbling 10 year old immature persona and Again has to be deciphered in what he says. Sylars desire of wanting Claire was nice but Sick..and AS MUCH as I enjoy Samuels character....If I have to hear "Hello my name is Samuel, your Special, Join my Carnival" ONE MORE TIME...I gonna FKN FLIP...Is that ALL HE IS DOING NOW??? Im tired of the recruitment and as cool as it was to see the guy Heal the land at the end....that things being portrayed are really telling me that Samuel is NOTTT a villain, has no diabolical plan, and is boring...which would REALLY SUCK!
