Not their best effort, but I can forgive a show in the early going ... it has to set some things up for a later payoff. Hopefully it can find its stride again next week ... a few more weeks of laying an egg like this one will make it much tougher to whittle out time for this show.

The Claire storyline was just... uggh. One day of school and she already can't hide that she's special? I half expected her to call an assembly, break her own neck, and then name the 50 state capitals right then and there, then run home crying about how she can hide who she is. When does LOST start again? :-P

I thought it was alright, but I didn't have high expectations for the first episode. Too much "hangover" from the finale. There were parts of it that could definitely lead to some interesting story lines, and that's all I really expected out of the premier.

Some points/ questions:

It has become glaringly obvious Sylar survived.

Only some of the story lines were explored this week, I almost expect a similar, drawn out setup episode next week before really heating up.

Is the boy Claire met at school her step-brother?

Are Mrs. Petrelli and Hiro's father one of the nine, or are there nine others that could have turned?

I thought Mohinder already found the antibody to the virus in his blood, is the quest for funding just a cover up or is did the antibody fail?

The Peter storyline at least heated up in the end.

Pretty sure it was the setup to get "into" the company for Mohinder.

The episode was a bit of a let down, IMO. Hopefully, as it has been said, that is due to wrapping up last year and introducing new characters. Still, an improvement is in order.

I think the problem with the episode was that the Maya and Alejandro story line is just getting started. It was previewed in the graphic novel this week. It took up a lot of time in the show and we still don't know exactly what power either one of them has. We just know they want to get to NY to meet Mohinder.

The high school kid's power is interesting in that I think it's the first time we've seen someone who has the same power as another character.

I agree with an earlier post that Journeyman was really good though. That one is already in the auto record so I don't miss it.

Maya did make everyone on the truck's eyes bleed, killing them instantly. I am not sure Alejandro has a power, I thought of his role as the guardian, although the running for 80,000 miles might mean something.

I don't know if making eyes bleed is enough to kill someone. I think the bleeding eyes are merely a symptom of something else. The online graphic novel seems to imply that Maya is the carrier of some kind of plague. It may be that she's the vector that causes whatever disease Molly and Mohinder's sister had to jump to the general population. Maybe Alejandro is like Mohinder and has a natural immunity to the disease.

Agreed regarding a symptom of something else. It reminded me of the Fifth Element whenever Zorg talked to the shadow.

Interesting thought on the virus, but I think it is more likely a high frequency that she sent out when she lost control that overloaded the brains.

It's the guy they mentioned at the end of season 1. He can see her if she looks for him and is supposed to be much more dangerous than Syler.

Learned that there were heroes or people "evolving" back in the 1400's "Tekeio Kensei"! Not sure about the spelling....

Personally I find Sylar to be a big wiener and was hoping he was done with at the end of last season. I find whoever is stalking the "Gang of 8" to be far more interesting. And then there is the Boogieman. And the Company.

Last week's episode was excellent and tonight's was fantastic. Sylar's return was expected, but the twist on his return was first rate. However, we need to consider that Zachary Quinto ("Sylar") is soon to play Spock in the next Star Trek film so what's happened to him is simply logical (yes, intended "Spock" reference).


Personally I find Sylar to be a big wiener and was hoping he was done with at the end of last season. I find whoever is stalking the "Gang of 8" to be far more interesting. And then there is the Boogieman. And the Company.

Actually, I like Sylar as a character. Uber-powerful. Jealous to a fault, overconfident, impetuous, and relentless. I really appreciate the performance by Quinto- who, IMHO, manifests a character with more infinitely more humanity and depth than anything Hayden Christensen could muster with Anakin Skywalker during the Star Wars prequels. Yeah, Christensen's portrayal is a low bar, but IMO Quinto absolutely nailed the essence of Sylar. Even tonight, he portrayed the same psychopathic behavior we've come to expect from this character.

And I also find the systematic elimination protocol of the "Gang of 8" very interesting. And here's a theory...

We've already met Takezo Sensei (played by David Anders). We know that he regenerates. But does that mean he can't be killed period? Is he immortal? This might be a stretch, but is it possible that Takezo Sensei is actually Claire's father- passing on his gift to his daughter? If so, might he be a bit grumpy that his daughter was ripped away by the "Company"?

Again, just a thought but if Takezo Sensei is more than just a bit character, it's plausible especially since the death of Kaito Nakamura occurred via the "bad guy" leaping with him off the building. Either the bad guy can fly or he can absorb pretty much any impact or injury. And let's consider the final target. Hmn...

I don't think my problem with Sylar is the actor. It's just that the way his character is written, he's just an incredible ******bag. He seems to want powers like a comic book collector wants rare comic books. All he really cares about is collecting powers. Every time he takes someone out, I keep hearing the classic line from those zombie movies "Braaaaains, Braaaains....Must have BRAAAAAIIIINS!" It's like he wants all these powers but has no real idea of what he wants to do with them.

I thought they already established that Nathan Petrelli is Claire's real dad, but youneverknow. I was thinking that Kensei is probably a common ancestor of Hiro and the Petrelli family and, therefore, Claire.

Hey! I'm still looking for a reasonably priced copy of X-Men #1!

I understand where you're coming from on Sylar, but it's pretty clear to me that he just wants to be the most powerful being on Earth because he's got...well...issues.

Yep, we think that Nathan Petrelli is Claire's father, but I wonder now considering that Kensei has now demonstrated powers that are identical to Claire's. I'm not sure that they'd have written those powers to be identical if there wasn't a reason. You're explanation of "common ancestor" could certainly be spot-on as well. But that's the fun of talking about this stuff and that's exactly what the creators of the show wanted- a "buzz".

This show is fun. Big time. It keeps us guessing and it keeps us involved. IMHO, it's the best show on TV right now because of that.

I'm intrigued by the fact that Claire's new boyfriend has the same power that her real dad has. Is that a sign that they may be related? We now have two instances where the same power is repeated although Kensei and Claire lived hundreds of years apart, Nathan and Claire-bear's boy are contemporaries. Do the same powers recur in the same family tree or do they occur randomly?

I agree. Heroes and Lost make me think about things on a much deeper level than other shows.

HumnHilghtFreel

Just my theory... I think that jungle Sylar is in is a hallucination he created for himself after he ate the brains, since he always has an adjustment period after he takes someones powers.

I also think the major storyline for Peter will be a Star Wars-esque decision between choosing the dark side or the righteous path for his powers. He already helped someone pull off a robbery, but he also let the guy go when he could have killed him, which would symbolically be the ultimate step into the evil use of powers.

This show was great this week though. Oh yeah, I also really hate these 2 new brother-sister characters with the bleeding eyes. They're my equivalent of Nikki and Paolo from Lost. I'll give them a little more time to develop a real story though, but right now their appearances have been pretty annoying.

Actually I don't think they're as bad as Nikki and Paolo. I think it's interesting that they're twins and one's power counteracts the other's. The only think that creeps me out about it is that it makes me think of the "black oil" thing in the eyes from X-Files.

He didn't do that on his own; they made him do it.

I have a feeling the twins are going to play a big role, otherwise, they wouldn't be spending so much time laying the groundwork for their characters.

Also, it appeared to me that Silar thought his new power would take him where ever he wanted to go, e.g., London, Paris. Instead, it only creates the illusion of being in these places (or did I misinterpret it?).

I don't get the Molly story line. I must have missed something.

She was the Company's tracking system last year. She can locate anyone she thinks about, except for the Bogeyman (the one who is supposed to be worse than Sylar), who can see her when she thinks about him.

I am very sure you are correct. The lady who he got the power from (her name escapes me) dealt in illusions (ie, becoming Sylar, the twins, etc.) - the illusion included the beach.
I for one like the Sylar character, as well. Yeah, he is a bit comic bookish - but there are dabs of that throughout the show.

And am I crazy, or was that Nichelle Nichols as Nikki's mother in law (say that five times fast)? Could we be witnessing a Star Trek reunion here?
In fact, I would not be surprised if she was one of the elders with a power - and, again, we have met three of those elders, right, if this is correct (herself, George Takei, and Cristine Rose). All three have been in ST (herself and George - rather obvious, Rose appearing in parts one and two of ST:TNG's Birthright episodes).
In fact, if Linderman (Malcome McDowell) was an elder - there is yet another Star Trek connection.
I know that has nothing to do with the plot itself - but I find connections like that rather fascinating.

I was underwhelmed by the S1 finale and I've been found the first 3 episodes of S2 to be snoozers. The rest of my family bailed out on the show after last season. I'll stick with it for another episode or two to see if this season improves.

The show I'm liking much better than Heroes is Journeyman, which follows Heroes on NBC. It's my favorite new show of the season.

Today's episode was much, MUCH better. The storylines are starting to come together, and Sylar is that guy everyone loves to hate again. The curiosity is who was watching/ healing him and how are they preventing him from using his powers? Is it the same company, or a rival one?

A note: it seems that the future encounter/fight between Peter and Sylar from season 1 is still likely to occur now that Sylar has (possibly?) gained the power of illusion.

Has everyone given up on this show? I thought last night's episode finally revealed a twist making the beginning of the season worth bearing. Adam/Kensei and Peter make for very interesting possibilities; is their teamwork due to deception or is there even more to the company of which we do not know for them to want to take it down?

For the first time since the season finale I can't wait until the next episode.

I was thoroughly bored by the feudal Japan story arc in the last couple of episodes before this week. So much so that I used the skip feature on my DVR to avoid those segments.

Overall, it just feels too disconnected. And the goals that the characters are working toward this season seem much less compelling than those from last season. Last night's episode really muddied the water about whether "the company" is good or bad.

Right before the writers went on strike they rewrote the end of the 11th episode to be a season finale. So December 3rd will be the last episode of the season for Heroes unless the strike ends quickly which does not look likely.

I thought Adam being around in present times was a given, though I didn't have him pegged to have killed Hiro's father.

I got a kick out of the "Girls fall for guys just like their fathers" line.

Last nights episode was good, and it will get great really soon with the writers' strike. The season seems like it will be ending in two episodes, is there room for any more twists and secrets, or will it just be a rush from here on out?

I will say this for sure, I wish Heroes has a 2 hour season finale in its immediate future, I would be glued to my couch the whole time.

No, its the company that saved him. The room he was in (with the blue walls) is the clue to that puzzle.

The real question should be why - is he a prisoner in the room? Do they need something from him? Is Mohinder right and they are actually trying to help? Or are they after something else?

My personal theory is that it was Mohinder. I think that HRG and he had it planned all along. Suresh could have taken the blood and "resurrected" him. I mainly think this because Suresh has always been hesitant when faced with the chance to kill from what we've seen, but wasn't hesitant in the least there.

I think you might have it there. I'd assumed Bob, but what you're saying makes more sense.

I just hope they don't reveal that anyone else has powers for a while. The show has progressed from Mohinder trying to find people who have powers to the viewers having a hard time finding anyone who doesn't.

If Bob is Elle's father...biological father I mean, then wouldn't he have a power as well? The powers seem to be genetic. Didn't we find out that Angela Pitrelli had a power...although I can't remember what it was?

I thought Bob had the Midas touch? Angela's power is still a mystery to me though.

Starting to ramp up for the finale!

This just occurred to me:

The car that the plague brother, sister and Sylar were using to get into America... I think it was Claire's stolen Rogue.

It's definetely the same type of car, not sure if it's the same one.

It would fit in with the writers' constant desire for interweaved plot lines.

It is. It has a bumper sticker from Claire's high school on it.

And with the desire to work in a good product placement. ;)

The most unbelievable element of "Heroes" is not that people can fly, or that their lives are miraculously, coincidentally intertwined. It's that everyone on the planet drives a brand new Nissan.

What are your guy's thoughts on the finale?

Spoilers below for those who might have Tivo'd





I thought it was good given the circumstances(strike) and the story for the third volume should be much much better with Sylar back to being Sylar.

Getting rid of the virus might have been the most anti-climatic thing ever, but the same could be said about the conflict ender in the first season. Note to Heroes writers, make your endings more dramatic!

Minor spoilers below:

I liked it. Kind of disappointed - but it was mainly because of the suddenness of the ending and the circumstances surrounding it. In other words, I think the writers did a good job, considering what they were facing.
I got an off-handed impression that there is a chance for a split season (like the Sopranos) if the strike is resolved in a reasonable amount of time. But, from the little action I've heard so far in getting it resolved, that is pretty darned unlikely.

While they said two Heroes would die, we did not actually see one of them die in the explosion - it is possible the person could have gotten out.

Has anyone checked out the Heroes online stuffs? I've not - but it sounds like some of the story is a little more fleshed out with "extra content" (the impression I get is that it is told in comic format, but I could be wrong). Question is: if this is so, who is doing the writing? The original writers? And, isn't that kind of what started this whole strike thing - the writers not getting their share from online materials?
Perhaps I am not looking at this right - or overlooking something obvious. Or simply over-reading this.

My guess is that the writers of the graphic novels do not count as television writers, regardless of whether they also write for TV or not.

Your guess is exactly right.

I thought last night was pretty good. As said above considering the circumstances and that they had to cut the season short by 10 episodes I thought they did a good job. I also thought the virus thing was very anticlimatic although I'm not sure what they could have done to make it any better.
I'm also excited to have Sylar "back". He is just a really cool bad guy.

Also we didn't see Nathan die, perhaps the next season involves Nathan in a coma and Peter trying to find Adam to use his blood to save Nathan. Also what did Ms. Patrelli mean by opening Pandora's box?

Did the promo actually say that two heroes would die? IIRC, I believe it said that two would fall...

Anyone still watching this show?

I like what they've done with Sylar, glad that Nikki/Jessica is gone, but wish Ali Larter was gone altogether.

I'm not a big fan of Arthur Petrelli, but I think the show still has promise. Not too excited about what's happened to Mohinder though.

The First season was excellent. The second season was disappointing (the directors admitted they royally screwed up in season two) so I assume a lot of people dropped the show. Shame, this season is excellent IMO.

I think the show is great ... the whole thin line between who is good and who is evil and how they got there is playing out well IMO.

I have a hard time getting past his accent. I keep thinking he's going to talk about how great tiny Ditka is (even though Forster's originally from New York).

I agree. I kept hoping that season two would get better at some point, but alas, no dice. And I was a bit put off by season three's premiere, but it's really ramped up since (even though I entirely hate what they've done with Mohinder).

And I actually do really like Arthur Petrelli's character. For a season one villian, Sylar was great but Arthur Petrelli is a bit more of an Apocalypse (for X-Men fans) level villian than was Sylar.

And I'm eagerly awaiting next week's continuation of this week's cliffhanger. That was truly unexpected.

I've been watching it sporadically, but it is not fault of the show. Until a couple of weeks ago, Time Warner was not carrying the local NBC station because of a somewhat known of difference, so I missed a couple of episodes (I did not realize another station was carrying the show until the dispute was almost over). And for some reason last week, a couple of my HD channels decided it was time for a vacation - so I missed another week. I realize the episodes are available streaming...but seeing I spend a lot of time using my computer with the TV on in the background, I find it a bit difficult to reverse the roles.

MINOR SPOILERS BELOW:

I do watch it with every chance I get, but having missed about 1/3 of the episodes, I tend to miss some of the story line. They've introduced some very interesting alternative story lines - I like the bizarro world alternative timeline with an evil cheerleader and so on. Of course, seeing a "good" Sylar was quite good.

Yeah, I agree. I stopped watching after a few episodes this season. While they definitely fleshed out Sylar's character a great deal, it seems like a lot of times they just have everybody making the same dumb mistakes just to move the plot along.
