    Heroes

    I know some folks have dropped this show, but I like where its going again. The Hunter and Sylar team up is leading me to believe that the future where Sylar is president and has a show down with Peter is going to happen.

    Last week when Hiro had baby Parkman strapped to him and was pushing Ando in a wheel barrow cracked me up.

    Anyone have any theories where its going now?

    If I were Peter, I would grab a hold of Sylar and fly us both into the sun. End of story. =)

    Re: Heroes

    Pretty sure that after the power acquired in this week's episode that it does pave the way for him becoming President down the road.

    They just need to find a way for Peter to regain his main power of absorbing powers from anyone he is around. Although I believe they may have paved the way for that this week as well.

    Love all the subtle ways they are tying back to Season 1 for people who have been fans of the show since the beginning.

    Re: Heroes

    I did read that the season finale will have Nathan and Sylar meeting. This doesnt bode well. Nathan is on a quest to right the wrongs he has done.

    I was relieved this week that I didn't watch D'ohinder make another terrible, life-damaging decision.

    I am really enjoying this show. It's too bad that some weren't real patient with it, but it's their loss.

    Well that would certainly solve a key point of the Sylar for President storyline. Let's hope it doesn't kill Nathan though.

    I did read that the season would have three deaths of main characters. Two real and one a fakeout.

    We have already seen two in the last three weeks, so only one remains. The best question is which one is the fakeout.

    With what I read though, and the way it was written, it could be possible there are 3 deaths in the finale alone.

    Oh, and I am intrigued as to how Peter would gain the shapeshifting ability if things were to continue down the path to have a Peter and Sylar battle.

    Re: Heroes

    It's not that I didn't have patients with it. It's that I missed 2 back 2 back show's during season 2 and when I tried to pick it back up I was totally lost. So I quit.

    I think the fakeout is Tracy. She blinked when she shattered. HRG/Noah is losing his control on things. I really, really, hope they dont kill him off.

    I didn't have the patience for it.

    I loved, loved, loved season 1. I watched last season, which was subpar. The first 4 or 5 episodes for this season simply sucked. I gave up after that.

    NBC royally screwed that up after Season 2 was over. For a few months all 11 episodes were online but up until the start of Season 3 you could only find 6 of them on the site.

    Go to nbc.com and catch up. They put those up for free.

    Oops, I jumped in too soon.

    We bought them on DVD, so we've got them all.

    Re: Heroes

    I missed an episode by accident a couple of weeks ago, then stopped watching last week's episode about 15 minutes in because I was frustrated with it. It just feels like they're going in circles.

    Claire: I hate my father! Wait, no I don't! Wait, yes I do! But I like my real father...wait, no I hate him too! No, no I don't and I'm going to Mexico with him!

    Peter: I hate my brother and mother! Wait, no I don't! Wait, yes I do! No, now I like my mother but hate my brother--but tune in next week when it will be the other way around!

    I reluctantly watched this week's episode on DVR last night and finally felt like it was starting to go somewhere. It just feels like they're taking 12 episodes to tell a story arc that could be much more interesting and engaging if it was told in maybe half the time.

    I have watched every episode of this show and went from great, to terrible, to okay, to just plain boring for me.

    True, I was getting frustrated with that a little too. I think it was taking some time for the new writers to come up with a way to end the season 2 stuff that wasnt doing well.
