Kryten: Ooooh yeah... d'oh! :smacks forehead:

Birfday clown: It's probably not their fault most of the time, just some jackass director saying "That was great, but could you do it again? And this time, a little blacker?" You see the same thing with adult black actors sometimes. If I were a black actor, I'd play dumb on any request like that from a director. "What do you mean? More morbid?" Of course, I'd probably wind up fired. Great world, ain't it?


edit: hmm. Off-topic totp's are no good. Gotta fix that...

Hiro rocks. They'd better not half-ass the impending duel between Hiro and Kensei the way they did the one between Peter and Sylar last season though.

Sylar without powers is a bit boring, but Stlar trying to corrupt the innocent is somewhat entertaining.

Our little assassin-in-training is awesome, and I'm glad they seem to have limited her power to immitating any physical action; we didn't need a third peter/sylar.

HRG does come across as a badass, though without the Haitian backing him up, I think he'd just be another archetypical amoral agent. The Haitian is the awesome one

Claire has once again lowered the bar for teenage girls on TV by becoming a moron just because a cute guy who treated her like shit when they first met started being nice and asked her to do something incredibly stupid. Oh, wait, that already was the bar for teenage girls on TV.

It was stupid of Claire to go along with it.  For West it wasn't stupid; it was just another step in his plan to turn Claire evil.  First he has her lying to her father and now this.  He's gradually seducing her to the dark side.

Absolutely.  Girl with uncontrollable deadly power but her twin brother can counteract it?  Yawn.  Gullible girl with uncontrollable deadly power who believes that Sylar is a nice man who just wants to help her?  Now we're getting somewhere.

But why else would they even cast black actors if they're not going to "act black" (whatever that means)?  They could have just as easily given Micah a set of white cousins on his mother's side of the family.  Then Veronica Mars could have been Sharingan girl and someone else could be evil Lightning Lass.

Of course, we wouldn't have Nichelle Nichols on the show then, but she hasn't really done anything so far besides stand around and be Trekkie fanservice anyway.

I dunno.  Unless Hiro decides not to use his powers for some reason, I can't really see there being much of a duel at all.  Hiro can't really kill Kensei, because he'll just regenerate; but there's just no way that Kensei could beat Hiro, unless he sucker punches him again or something.

On Kensei:

On Hiro:

On MIA Heroes:

On West:

On Maury:

In a way, after they revealed who Adam was, I felt like they should've cut the episode off right there, don't have any post-credits "in next week's episode" thingies, and go to the next show. It felt like having the "in next week's episode" thing took away from the shock/awe of finding out his identity (although, like I said earlier, I called his identity a mile away). This was one of the better episodes of the season.

The virus...

On hiro, I agree with ic.

Adam Monroe genuinely surprised me, though in retrospect I'm surprised it hadn't even occurred to me. Regardless, I approve.

I assume at this point that Hiro's dad knew hiro's future (past?) since he was a kid, maybe before he was even born.

Anyone else irritated at the soapy aftertaste this season more than last? I mean, they basicly hit the reset buttons on so many characters this season. Sylar's powers, Peter's confidence, HRG's humanity...

I don't think Hiro's father had any idea.  In the first season he tells Hiro straight up that the boy had been a disappointment up until he went on his Hiro's Quest.

winna: Exactly. His dad, along with the rest, came up with the plan to change the future (the one Peter just saw), which meant crushing Hiro's spirit. For years he thought he'd succeeded, but when Hiro finally stood up to him, he had a change of heart and decided to support his son instead. Duh.

Ok, it's just a theory, and perhaps a rather unlikely one, but I like it.  smile

Watching it right now. Does anyone else hate when shows or movies show a newspaper article and the story has nothing to do with the article? You can't get one of your writers to make up something? You're fucking writers, you lazy fucks.

Pfft. They clearly have no respect for newspapers. Godless bastards.
Also, Nathan reads the headline "Snow Falls in Miami" as "Snow Falls on Miami."

First off Gopher... the group of the old people mutants (as I will refer to them... or by the acronym GotOPM [pronounced Got "Oh Pee Emmm"]) did not foresee the future that Peter saw.  They foresaw a future in which they would rule the world and make it a better place under their benevolent hand, but that failed because Peter and Nathan stopped their plan after they found the painter who showed them their opportunity.

Anyways... West isn't evil... it's just a stupid teenage love story.  Also, the teenagers in the show pretty much act like real teenagers, overreacting and whatnot.  We all know most kids are stupid, why should the television children be excluded?

I'm pretty sure that everything that Bob's been doing since he brought Mohinder into the company has been part of an evil plot to test or even spread the virus.

The fact that the company is evil doesn't make Adam any less evil.  I don't think he's the killer, but remember that he promised to bring suffering to all that Hiro holds dear for as long as he lives.  Sounds pretty evil to me.

That said, I suspect that Hiro will still try to redeem him when they meet again.

Also, what the fuck with D.L.? First you bring him back from being shot, then you shoot him again!

Yeah, that didn't make a lot of sense.  Perhaps there's still more to be revealed about that.

Possibly the worst episode of season 2. Only good thing that can be said and also bad was that it didn't focus on many stories so we got plenty of Peter and to a lesser extent Niki. Yes and of course the fucking awful Alejandro and Maja story which many have also stated their dismay on. I think Micahs cousin is also pretty uninteresting also, IMO. D.L's death was a  fucking stupid way to go out. I'm sure even the casual viewer could make inference on Peter/ Nathans survival. Gratuitous episode. Whats worse was that my hopes were really high for it and I was hoping to see Parkman but at the same time happy because he could get more focus in another potential four months episode. Flashing four months forward was ridiculous in itself. There was no point in even doing it rather than raising the hopes of a bunch of fans for a much awaited episode then dropping them.

Somewhat interesting episode, although I could not figure out if the woman that Adam and Peter went to meet had a power or not (I thought all the people in the photo where meant to have a power).

I was also curious if there was significance to the virus number, that being 138.
