Oh show why do you do this to me. I want to hate what you are doing to my lovely elder Petrelli, but dammit you insist on handing me flowers and candy and using the puppy eyes and I can't help but love you again.
I have to start with Sylar tonight simply because the man is adorable, sexy and man he kicked a ton of ass. He's like that boyfriend you can't get rid of because he's on your Facebook page, My Space and even your Twitter and no matter how much you delete he just shows up again.
I was oddly reminded of Gilmore Girls with the whole "Sylar picks up a buddy," Maybe it was the mom looking like Rory's mom or just the fact I was wondering what Jess would have been like if Sylar's dad wound up in Stars Hollow. Either that or my brain wants to have Milo in every bloody scene of the show now.
Speaking of Peter, HOLY WONDER BOY YOU GREW A PAIR AND I LIKE IT. I wanted him to drag Nathan into the bushes and give him a lesson on the wonders of hate sex. And given how kinky Nathan seems to be I bet the man would have loved it.
I totally see Peter becoming the bad ass we know and love from the future. Our lovely emo nurse had been screwed with once too often and dammit he ain't gonna take it anymore.
Tracy was her wonderful bitchy self and I loved her teaming up with Peter to try and bring Nathan down. However, both of them seem to lose their brains in the wonder of Nathan's hotness and forget that the man was in the Navy, which means HE'LL KNOW A TRAP WHEN HE SEES ONE MORONS.
Moving on to the Bennet family, Lyle actually gets a mention and we see Sandra in a SCENE people...with dialogue no less. I wonder who Ashley Crow had to bribe to get on the show at least once a volume now that her husband is gone. Use your actors Heroes please they make the plot holes go away.
I loved Claire and Noah in this episode, they were everything they should be after the last three volumes. The slash between the Hunter, Noah and Nathan continues to write itself. I'm also amused that between the three of them Noah and the Hunter make Nathan look half a head shorter then everyone in the room.
I don't know what to think about Daphne, Matt Hiro, Mohinder and Ando. On one hand it seems like M3 might be returning and I love the idea that Mohinder is once again the voice of reason we all know and love. However, the random death/wounding of people fans like seems to be happening again and I for one would like to remind Tim that the fans know where he lives.
Oh and writers STOP LEAVING ANDO BEHIND DAMMIT HE HAS A POWER NOW.
And now for Nathan, damm man please stop being so damm hot and bad ass, I want to hate you but it's very clear you still have a soul so I can't....darn you. It's very clear you want to be Professor X but you are coming off very Magneto instead. Also if you want to compete with Peter for the little black dress award, please keep having sexual chemistry with everything that moves.
Finally an honorable mention for Angela folks, the woman knows how to cock block her own son. *applauds* I hope you passed that lovely skill onto Claire I think she will need it.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall for some TV and movie pitches. Anyway, series 1 was reasonably good - some quirky characters, interesting situations and, while pushing the bounds of credibility, kept us all on our toes. "Save the cheerleader, save the world," is just about crazy enough that I'll buy whatever keeps coming. It was a long season, they kept piling on the characters, and it worked for the most part. Then Season Two happened. Ooo. There must have been … more
At the end of "Villains", I think we all knew that Nathan had turned evil or shall we say...misguided. And if you watched the preview than you also know that he had plans in place to round up all those with abilities and lock them away. Kind of like a modern day Hitler don't you think? I just didn't think it was all going to happen in one episode. Nathan didn't waste anytime and I thought that was some great writing. It shows that the character had a plan and meant … more
I started watching this show half way through the first season. A friend of mine had started watching it from it's premiere and suggested I watch it. I knew I couldn't start watching it from the middle of the season so I started searching online and found all the episodes I'd missed and started watching them. I was hooked by the first episode and couldn't wait to see the next, then the next one and so on. I really love how Tim Kring made the characters … more

About this tv show
Heroes is an American science fiction television drama series created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. The plot tells the stories of disparate and ordinary individuals from around the world who inexplicably develop superhuman abilities, and their roles in preventing catastrophes and saving humanity. The series emulates the aesthetic style and storytelling of American comic books, using short, multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing arc. Kring and the writers have an idea of where the series is heading for the first five seasons.
