I've got a theory on where they're going given the nature of Samuel's ability.

I'm watching till they admit that they're gonna use Multiple Man's powers to bring Nathan back to life. Then finally at long last I will be able to declare victory and give up in utter disgust!

And here's proof positive that humanity is totally frakked in the head: Heroes is the most pirated show on the planet.

OTOH, Dexter is #4. So most people have terrible taste but many have very good taste.

I like the part where they claim True Blood has over 12M viewers. For an HBO series, holy cow!!!

They shouldn't put Hayden in situations where she needs to act.

I give the first hour a Below Average, and the second hour an Average.

There were problems with both episodes, one of the biggest being they were boring, but I'm feeling generous tonight.

I doubt its gonna happen, Kring's already said in an interview that Pasdar is not coming back. Of course he tends to lie & stuff...

it was another typical 2 hours of Heroes. Lots of plot fail & characters acting stupid. I like how Noah decided to be all friendly with Edgar after he beats the crap out of him. Slick. The second episode should have been called The Search for Sylar's Shirt.

I gave both parts Average althought Part II was probably a slight bit stronger.

When it came to Nathan's sendoff the ep said all the right things but it just didn't resonate. These sort of character moments have historically fallen flat on this show since it rarely tried to develop relationships in any meaningful way due largely to having such a large cast and being mostly plot-driven. I never really was invested in Claire/Nathan for instance since rarely did they interact.

These episodes also highlighted the fact that this season has been drawn out and padded out with filler. We could have gotten here much quicker but then we wouldn't have had 19 episodes this season. Take the whole Nathan/Sylar "arc" in the first half which really was a pointless thread. Or the Hiro/Ando padding where we were treated to more tired sci-fi phrases and Hiro acting like a child. Or Peter/Claire going into a tense standoff.

I did briefly get a kick out of Samuel and Sylar's confrontation. The mystery surrounding Samuel's PLAN was intriguing. I'm thinking he wants to wipe out all life on Earth and create a new paradise with the help of Mossman made only for those with abilities.

Lydia's ability much like Emma's is arbitrary and rather lame. Angela continues to be wasted. I was going to complain about the absence of Heidi and the boys but then I saw the dark haired woman who never showed her face with two kids and I guess that was meant to be her--I guess budget concerns prevented bringing back Rena Sofer. Claire is an idiot. She leaves college and her gf to go pick up trash at a carnival?!? Oh but now she realizes something is up with Samuel and all the other not subtle hints escaped her. Now she is back at college.

5 episodes left and if NBC was smart that'd be it.

Has Kring ever patted himself on the back for a job well done? That would be the ultimate lie... to himself!

I guess... Ive lost track of what he can do now...

notice during the Sylar/tatoo lady scene they showed glimpses of Matt & Nathan being all lovey dovey with family. I bet this it gonna be Sylar's newest "crutch", he cant kill b/c he has traces of goodness in him from the people that posessed him. Blah.

I realized too late that the show came back tonight so I didn't catch it; I'll Hulu it in the next few days. I don't know why I still watch this show, but I guess in the end I just can't get enough of the WHOOOOSH sound at commercials and the sometimes still-inventive camerawork. The actors (the good ones at least ) can occasionally shine through the shlock the writers give them, too. Hey, maybe if they get a fifth season, there can be a story where Hiro learns what it means to be a hero! And Ando can come with!
