Why I'm Not Blogging About Heroes Anymore.

That's right, faithful reader. I've reached the end of my stick with writing about this show but before I go, a few parting shots:
  • You know things have gone awry when I'm rooting for Sylar to kill the Typhoid Twins.
  • What's the point of Sylar anyway? He has essentially been reset to season one Sylar, trying to get his powers back up.
  • Speaking of reset, this show as too many characters and stories back at square one
    • Peter is trying to figure out his powers
    • There is a dystopian future he must prevent
    • Issac's paintings are the key even though he's been dead for 5 plus months storywise and despite his spell of no input due to not being high, we're too believe he painted at least 7 more future laden clues before Sylar ate his brain
    • Mohinder trusts the wrong guy
  • Mohinder is the symbol for everything I hate about this show right now. His character is so dumb it is beyond comprehension. I remember how happy I was when I thought Sylar killed him last season.
  • I don't care about Claire trying to fit into a new school or her new stalker boyfriend.
  • What do you do with your best and most popular character (and Emmy-nominated actor)? You separate him from the rest of the cast and give him his own lame storyline.
  • As much as I hated the "Save the Cheerleader, Save The World" campaign, at least it showed that the story was going somewhere. This year, I have no clue what the hell is going on.
  • H.R.G. is the only interesting character on the show.
  • Given how great and exciting "Five Years Later" was in season one, isn't it clear the producers should have let Peter blow up New York?
I'm going to keep watching but I just can't muster up the energy to write about this show.

The Break-Up

Dear Countdown:

I tried to do this in person but you wouldn't see. I tried to call you but you wouldn't pick up the phone. So you have left me no choice but to write you this letter.

CD, this just is working out for me anymore. I thought I could hold on and wait to see if this relationship went anywhere but I can't. I thought it would be like before, when you were 52. But now, I don't know. Did I change? Did you change?

No, I'm pretty sure we both changed. You keep going on aimlessly in your life, not knowing where you want to go. You took on too many things at once and now I don't even know what going on with you.

I've changed too. I've been in abusive relationships like this before, sticking around just to see how things ended. I hate feeling like I wasted all my time if I'm not going to stick around to the end. But I've got to be mature. I've got to let you go and move on.

I'm sorry that this didn't work out but don't worry, there are other readers out there in sea for you. I just can't be one of them.


P.S.: Do you have Sinestro Wars phone number?

Heroes Season Two: "Fight or Flight"

I miss Mars Investigations.

I'm changing my style of writing about these episodes.

What I Liked:
  • Kristen Bell is back on television.
  • Matt Parkman expanding the use of his powers.
  • No Claire/SuperStalker in this episode
  • No Typhoid Twins in his episode
  • Micah being Yoda to Monica's Luke Skywalker. It's good to see someone have fun with their powers for once (not counting Elle frying one of the Irishmen)

What I Didn't Like:
  • Since they made such a big deal of Kristen Bell joining the cast, they kind of wasted her.
  • I've been told by a couple of people that I'm being nitpicky but it really annoys me how quickly character's travel on this show. I'm going to need a timeline because without them saying so, I'm assuming that all these stories are going on at the same or around the same time.
  • I can't stand how stupid these characters act. Why would Mohinder bring Molly back to the company when there the ones who had her locked up in the first place? Why would Matt, a POLICE DETECTIVE, enter a room with a suspect (father or not) that he hasn't inspected? Why would Niki go to The Company for her problems when Linderman, who ran the Company, shot her husband, D.L.? I can do this all day...
  • Why isn't there more of a Butterfly Effect with Hiro tampering in the past? They showed in the beginning how is actions changed the past a little bit but they haven't remarked on it since.

  • Without access to Molly's ability tracking power and giving that Monica JUST learned she had powers, how did Mohinder show up on her doorstep?
  • Who is Elle's father? (I think Papa Petrelli is still alive)
  • How did whomever Elle was working for lose Peter in the first place?
  • Is Papa Parkman really The Nightmare Man?
  • Did Nathan has facial reconstructive surgery in the four months from saving New York and the premiere?
  • Does Matt have the ability to save Molly himself with his expanding powers?
  • Who else's powers have we not seen the full extent of?
  • Was Peter lying when he said his new Irish girlfriend's artwork was good?

Heroes Season Two: "The Kindness of Strangers"

After the preview for next week, I already don't care about this episode.
  • Why didn't anyone call Claire's parents after she ditched school with SuperStalker?
  • If anyone is going to put a bullet in HRG's eye, it will be SuperStalker?
  • Aww, my two dads. They are a little too close in their argument. I can't be the only one who expected a smooch.
  • Damn, that is a nice beard.
  • What happened to Nate's wife who helped ruin season six of 24?
  • "I'm not allowed to be here. Bitch, I'm Nathan Petrelli. I will fly you to the sky and drop your ass."
  • Typhoid Twins...perfect, I wanted to check on the Giants game.
  • 7-3 Giants.
  • Sylar got pretty far with a bloody stomach in the woods in the middle of nowhere.
  • Is Uhura reading from a teleprompter?
  • Apparently, you need to be kinda cute to have powers. (Doing an age check on IMDB for Dana Davis)
  • So she confesses for a crime that they should have on videotape?
  • "But I can fly." Nice pickup line.
  • (Dana Davis is legal. Awesome)
  • Nathan shaved. I hope he donated his beard hair to goodwill
  • Matt is teaming up with another power. This should end well.
  • Bye Mama Petrelli. I know she's not dead yet but the Heroes writing staff was never known for its subtlety.
  • How are they twins but only one can understand English?
  • Well, Typhoid Twins are going to be suckers too.
  • (Please let this not play out with Sylar killing the brother which sets the sister loose killing everyone. That seems too stupid, right? RIGHT?!?!)
  • How is that guy cast as the store manager on two shows on NBC that air back-to-back (Chuck)?
  • Katrina victims are the new show stereotypes in 2007.
  • Claire, your dad is the master. How do you think you can lie to him?
  • Damn, Parkman. You got hit with the double whammy: wife cheated AND the baby's his!
  • Matt's daddy is a power?
  • We at Heroes understand the plight of the African-American Katrina Survivors.

  • This relationship is moving a little too fast,no?
  • Way to not use your powers, Micah?
  • Way to nuzzle up to your cousin's breasts, kid. I wonder how many takes they filmed.
  • So one of the people in that photo is the boogeyman. If this were "Lost", I would rewind to the scene where Matt and Nathan looked at the photo and see who was the most noteworthy actor who had not been introduced yet and deduce that he was The Nightmare Man. But this isn't lost and the Giants game is still on.
  • What's with Nathan's mirror image?
  • Did Sylar just say "golly"?
  • Honestly, those police sketches aren't even so good that if you look at it, you immediately know it was them.
  • How is Sylar healed from his sword wound?
  • Nice defection Claire.
  • So H,R.G. and The Haitian are on the road again?
  • Does NBC know that the WWE owns all those moves? Did they have to pay Vince Mcmahon for use of Rey Mysterio's 619?
  • Way to go, Matt. How did child services leave a child in your hands?
Next Week: VERONICA MA...UM...KRISTEN BELL!!!!!!! Now I give a shit about this show.

Heroes Season Two: "Kindred"

Sylar's back. Can he bring some excitement back to this season?

Random thoughts for last night's episode:
  • Take the fucking box, Peter!
  • When exactly does the Typhoid Twins story get interesting? Dania Ramirez is hot but not "ignore the deficiencies in the story" hot
  • Who tries to steal a car in broad daylight in front of a cop? How hard is it for two people to stay together?
  • I knew D.L. was dead (despite getting shot less than Parkman)
  • Candice/Michelle: I guess an illusionist is an easy role to recast (FYI,the original Candice is now on Reaper on the CW)
  • I bet Sylar wishes he got to eat Claire's brain
  • How hard would it be to track the purchases of Papa Suresh's book?
  • So Parkman knows about Mohinder's secret meeting? I wonder if Mohinder told Matt or he just read his mind.
  • How did the state award custody to a divorced cop and a guy who goes around the country holding lectures about people with superpowers?
  • OK, the notes to Ando are pretty cool but you are telling that no one notice a note to Ando in all those centuries?
  • So Claire/s stalker is a dick?
  • Who flies in broad daylight? Nice to see that their special effects budget has increased?
  • Go home, Hiro.
  • Do they cast from Star Trek conventions? If Scotty had been alive, would he have been the boss of the fake Irish gang?
  • I like this Anakin Skywalker Peter we've got going...then he ruined it by not opening the fucking box.
  • How Sylar obtain Michelle's powers? How does his powers actually work?
  • Great, Sylar is LOST. Hopefully he can defend himself against smoke monsters and polar bears?
  • Oh, why couldn't Issac's painting have shown Mohinder with a bullet in his eye?

Heroes Season Two: "Lizards"

Has Mohinder learned some new tricks? Will Peter remember who gave him the haircut he badly needed?

Here are my randumb thoughts on episode two:
  • You find a guy who can shoot shit out his hands and you're looking for iPods.
  • How did they actually apprehend Peter considering his powers?
  • How many Issac paintings are there?
  • So Matt's first case as detective is into the Mr. Sulu murder. What are the odds?
  • What happened to Audrey Hanson, the FBI agent who knew all about Matt's powers and Sylar?
  • Something that always bothered me about Hiro. Shouldn't his English have improved more than it had when he went back in the past to save Charlie Andrews?
  • This Hiro storyline is stupid. If this was Jeph Loeb's idea. I wouldn't be surprised.
  • So Claire's smart? Well, book smart...
  • Man, these are awful accents. Couldn't they grab some extras from the cast of The Black Donnellys off the unemployment line?
  • The Haitian (Who came up with that name, Vince McMahon?) is back...and he's dying! Doesn't pay to be black on this show (D.L.*, Charles Deveaux, Simone Devaeaux)?
  • Is fine-ass Maya a Typhoid Mary without her brother near by?
  • At least Hiro has complete confidence in his powers. That's the real problem with this show.
  • Maybe Peter is finally on the path to his bad ass five year self
  • Why hasn't Hiro even attempted to teleport back home?
  • They are going to have to explain at some point how all the people with powers are drawn to one another otherwise these coincidences are going to be one of the things that bring down this show.
  • Ah Mohinder. Once a dumbass...
  • I'm calling our immigrant friends The Typhoid Twins or fine-ass Maya and her brother.
  • Nathan is making me want to grow a full beard.
  • Mama Petrelli is next.
  • ...or maybe not. It appears H.R.G. has trained Mohinder well.
  • H.R.G. and The Haitian. Tag Team, back again...
  • The toe cutting was gross but cool.
  • Ok, Peter. You phased through the ropes, beat the shit out of thugs and shot beams out of your hands. JUST TAKE THE F@!&ING BOX! What's this negotiating shit?
NEXT WEEK: The Box. I swear I want to take the NBC executive charged with marketing for Heroes and hold him underwater for five minutes.

*They haven't said he's dead but I see the writing on the wall
