I thought Heroes last night was completely awesome! For starters, it hearkened back to the old times :HRG in a taxi with Suresh, – there’s some interesting chemistry between those two for sure – the painting in – presumably – Isaac’s old loft, Mama Petrelli with a controlling hand… it was all so First Season that I nearly squealed with delight. Especially when HRG flat out said how he’d always been OK with morally gray. Ahh yes, that’s right.
Also, HRG spent a good majority of the ep bound and captive (which is how I like him – er, what?) and the scenes where Parkman was in his head were well shot. Gimmicky to make them B&W but it worked in this case. I think what made this ep so good, to me, was that it wasn’t all over the place, presenting more problems than solutions. They had one story line throughout, interspersed with the recent flashbacks, which kept the viewers on track. Maybe, just maybe, the writers, producers, etc… are back to basics and have a clear idea of where to take this show. I’d be happy if from here on out, we could get episodes of this caliber. Is it horrible to say I think this one rocked because of Sylar’s complete and total absence from it? I like him – in general – but he’s so predictably evil but so very cheesy at times. I’m not saying I don’t like cheese because I’ve been known to watch some bad shows but his dialogue is always so corny.
I think I’m more interested now. Monday nights once again have purpose!
And this concludes my drooling over Heroes. Let us now find out what shows YOU drool over…
