thanks for the eye candy everyone! I started a thread about how hot he was the day after I saw it May 7. no one noticed - still going on about Chris Pine everyon was . . .
I remember that thread -- a casualty of timing, I think. In the week the movie opened, forum traffic jumped to about ten times the usual volume and threads were sliding off the front page sometimes in less than an hour. Topics which weren't constantly jumping to the top like salmon leaping the falls were just getting lost in the flood.

Yeah, if you stopped to take a breath then, you missed a ton of threads.

^ Off the top of my head, one of my favorite Sylar episodes is The Hard Part. Its the episode that totally got me hooked to the character and Quinto himself. Heroes has been declining in quality since season 1 ended (I still love it though) but any episode with Sylar in it always has my attention. He always steals the show.

I know this is a ZQ appreciation thread, but I absolutely love how Urban looks in the pic with Quinto and Saldana.

Good gawd, that academy cap is a stunner! Did that come from a trailer? It's so freaking big, clear and saturated.

Edit: Oh, I see; it's got JJ in it, so it's a promo.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

Three seasons are really not hard to watch (seriously, it took me about 4-5 days to blast right through them, but then again, I'm a marathon queen--I've watched entire seasons in 1 day before).

And I disagree with the decline. Season 3 was amazing, IMO. Season 2 had issues because of the Writer's Strike. Sylar is far more prominent in season 3 than he was in season 1.

But if you want to just watch episodes with a ZQ/Sylar-focus (his character is easily the most fun and multi-dimensional on the show), there's only 47 episodes that he was in out of the total 56.

If there's any episode that is known as the 'hook' episode, it's episode 1x09 - Homecoming. His first episode was 1x08 - Seven Minutes To Midnight, but all he does is sit at a diner in the shadows, show his cracked Sylar watch and can-open the waitress' head as she uses the can-opener. You don't see ZQ's face (once again, obscured by shadow) until Homecoming, and even then you only see his eye until his hat is taken off at the end. This episode is very necessary, however, to show what the series is about as well as to introduce Sylar. The first episode that really showcases ZQ as an actor is 1x10 - Six Months Ago, in which you get to see the Gabriel Gray part of Sylar (the watchmaking prehistory). 1x11 - Fallout is where the events of Homecoming continue and features some amazing scenes between Sylar, who has become totally insane, and Noah Bennet a.k.a. Horn-Rimmed Glasses.

Probably ZQ's best or most memorable episodes were:
Homecoming, Six Months Ago, Fallout, Distractions, Parasite, The Hard Part, How To Stop An Exploding Man, Kindred, Truth And Consequences, The Second Coming, One Of Us, One Of Them, I Am Become Death, Angels And Monsters, Villains, The Eclipse pt. 2, Dual, Shades Of Gray, Into Asylum, I Am Sylar & An Invisible Thread.

I think you can more or less piece together his journey with these. The Gabriel episodes (if slightly sociopathic, dorky watchmaker with mother issues that make him want to be "special" is more appealing to you than the absolutely delightful skull-slicing "magnificent bastard" unkillable serial killer) are Six Months Ago, The Hard Part (probably ZQ's best acting!), Villains & I Am Sylar (also one of his greatest performances). Shades of Gray goes a long way to show just why Sylar has more layers than just the "Sylar" image he puts on--it basically shows a mirror image of himself in his father and what he doesn't want to become.

Here's a fanvid that is pretty much The Hard Part and Fallout/the rest of season 1 in a nutshell (with a little help from Queen): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfTDs44-n5c

(God, I love his facial expressions in The Hard Part.)

And anything Sylar/Noah is pretty much gold.

If it helps, George Takei and Nichelle Nichols have recurring roles on the show!

I haven't watched Heroes, but I've been looking at the pictures here. Something about Zach's hair being shorter and fluffier (if you get what I mean) makes him look even more insane than usual.

Oh my... this one's got to go to the Urban thread too. Hope you don't mind!

I LOVE that scene when he squeezes Mr. Muggle's nose. I knew Zach as a dog person when he did that. It was just too natural. So I wasn't shocked at all to hear about Noah.

....i must clarify: i have a 1 1/2 year old who takes up the majority of my time every day. i simply don't have the time to blow through 3 seasons of anything. it took me, like, a month to get through TOS. some days i managed to get 3 or 4 episodes, and that was seriously pushing it. also i have a man who works hard and wants attention (geez, i know....) when he comes home. altogether this leaves me with nowhere near enough time for myself, much less nurturing any more obsessions. oy.

but thanks very much for the episode list! i am interested in all sides of any character who catches my eye, and your little bit of backstory will no doubt come in handy.

also.... ^^ what is with his eyes in that last pic? looks like someone got happy with the photoshop, and the result is not appealing. his eyes are glowing, for pete's sake! even sylar doesn't have photoshoppy glowing eyes, does he?

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

There seem to be a lot of pictures of him where if there's a bright light shining in his eyes, his eyes kind of take on an amber glow. What you're seeing is a bright light shining in his eyes. It's not digitally altered because there are numerous photos of him with glowy amber eyes with light reflections.

Personally, I think that's a great shot of him. Very appealing.

One thing that I always notice with him is his open bite (his front teeth aren't aligned properly and have a space in front between his upper and lower teeth). It's kind of cute. I like it when actors have personality in their not-so-perfect teeth. His open bite also adds to his long-jawed appearance and the constant persing of his lips.

As for not being interested in watching him play a villain, IMO, he's a right bastard most of the time, but he definitely has his sympathetic side to him and you can't help but root for the guy sometimes. The morally gray characters (see: "gray"--most of the characters aren't all black or white--and Sylar's real last name being "Gray" is a big hint at that) are the most enjoyable (Sylar, Noah Bennet, Angela Petrelli, etc... being the most obviously morally ambiguous of the bunch).

Then come over here and hang out with me. I'm stressing out over my how mine look in my head shots.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

In Trekkie news, I'm about to get to season 2 of TOS (though I've seen a few out-of-order episodes from following seasons).

Spock and McCoy are hands-down my favorites. That definitely came through in the movie with these new versions, too.

Here's the obligatory sexy Sylar fanvid loaded with shirtlessness, wifebeaters, smiles, apple-munching, Mr. Muggles-loving and Sybrow action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3InGc1T2bY
And just because I love the clip choices: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlINMrP5rOo
A great little Sylar trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS3dEFX1Zuk

And here's the Spock romance video (both Quinto and Nimoy): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQJ8fHsQ7Js
