Previously, on Heroes...

* Clea Duvall!
* Ah, Claire's adopted.
* "Trust me, I actually know a few things." -Claire's dad
* Man, huge apartment for a paranoid Indian professor working as a cab driver in New York City.
* COMIC BOOK! 9TH WONDER
* I also freak out whenever Niki has a blackout.
* D.L.?
* Claire's tape stolen!
* Right, Mohinder has no reason not to trust this mysterious woman who happened by to save him from the bumbling break-in. Or maybe the point of shows like this and Lost are to make me suspicious of everyone all the time.
* Garage clean! Free convertible! Four hours well spent.
* IN THE TRUNK FOLLOW THE MAP
* WHOAH. Brain removed. And the cops were waiting.
* Matt? He's a super-cop!
* Ooh, super-serial-killer.
* Dude was frozen solid before his head was sawed open. NOT RIGHT.
* I don't know how I'd feel about my estranged father naming a pet after me.
* So, some sort of mathematical theorem, combining the human genome to "DNA migration patterns." OK, sure.
* Hooray for Deus ex answering machine.
* Patient Zero!
* "I'm not done protecting you from the world." -Claire's dad
* The male nurse can fly too? Ehn.
* OH HEY NICE SKETCH
* IT'S NOVEMBER 8TH. HIRO CAN TIME TRAVEL TOO.

All in all, a pretty good show.

Hiro, the most powerful man in the world!

I half-wonder if the brothers have to be close together in order to fly.

It might be nothing, but I was fairly certain that the gun Hiro found in the future was the same as the one dropped by the guy who was in Mohinder's apartment. Of course, even if it was it could mean quite a few things.

I was cheesed off that their HD signal came in as 'standard' for most of the show, leaving a huge black border around the ENTIRE picture for me. :( It didn't fix itself until right before the end.

Also, the most awesome.

Heh, that'd be hella-lame.

I doubt it, just because Nathan doesn't seem *at all* surprised by this flying thing. Making me wonder how long he's been able to do so.

You are hilarious.

"Deus ex answering machina" would have been worth double points, easy.

If I were Paul, I would delete both of these comments and edit the original post.

OK, I wouldn't, but I'd really be tempted.

It turns out the super sneaky preview I watched was actually significantly different from what aired last week, so I need to go back and watch the pilot again. In the version I had, Isaac the Precog Artist had chopped off his hand and drawn the mushroom cloud on the floor in his own blood. I was somewhat surprised to see him with two hands in this ep, to say the least. The other major difference was that in the version I saw, Niki's super genius kid ran away from the babysitter while she was busy blacking out and killing the mob goons. He got bus tickets and went to go find his father. I wonder why they decided to change it for the network premiere and if any of these elements will show up later?

Weird and wacky!

Oh, I think that Syler (sp?) is the adopted dad. I think he is taking the brains from the heroes.
PMMJ: Darkseid is.cheetahmaster on October 3rd, 2006 01:29 pm (UTC)
Actually, I hope he's not, because that's too straightforward.

M. had an alternate theory: the dad is a red herring, and Niki is the killer.

Did Hiro really time travel or is it just yet another way our Heroes have of seeing the future? He seemed to reappear on the Tokyo subway at the exact same time he "left" it.

I would love to get a good screencap of the unpublished 9th Wonder panels that Hiro found in Isaac's apartment.
PMMJ: Ghost of Christmas Pastcheetahmaster on October 3rd, 2006 01:47 pm (UTC)
I'm under the impression that he can time travel, what with the Tokyo subway clock and the bonus cubicle second.

If he was just seeing the future, he was also living the experiences in it. And I think that concept would be hard to translate onto TV. The other people who can see the future seem to do it in dreams or through art.

(I also believe he can teleport, what with the ladies' bathroom and Times Square and all.)

Thinking back, I'm a little confused by the timeline, what with Hiro's mad skillz, but I really liked this episode.

And Mohinder's dad having huge apartments in Madras and Brooklyn, on a cabbie's salary? Uh, sure, ok. (I'm ok with superheroes, of course, but that kind of tomfoolery with real estate? I can only willingly suspend my disbelief so far)

Waiting for cop guy to have a Band Candy episode.

And Niki...she could go either way, but it seems she's pretty sketchy already. EVILL!

Also, I think Mohinder's power is to enter apartments super-quietly to advance the plot to startle intruders.
PMMJ: Nosferatucheetahmaster on October 3rd, 2006 02:41 pm (UTC)
The guys whoever is sending to break in are just super-incompetents. Or maybe they all had their hearing damaged by listening to Whitesnake at max volume when they were back in community college.

I like the part where Mohinder and his new friend freely discuss the stuff his dad was killed over in the apartment they just caught someone installing a listening device in.  I mean, obviously they wouldn't install more than one, right?

Super Cop
Lots of silly stuff this episode.
Why in the hell did they arrest him anyway? They were focusing on what happened to the mom, but failed to see the impossibilty of the cop super freezing the dad and taking his brains?
Like cleaning up the mess. Getting Girlfriend a new car, but making her get rid of the bodies?
What kind of mom puts her kid in a car knowing there are 2 corpses in it anyway?!?!
Don't get me started on Mohinder and the trap. Her boobies just weren't big enoug to cancel danger sense.
Bah I say!
danzanramon on October 4th, 2006 04:20 pm (UTC)
I didn't get the chance to watch this until last night.. but I have to say, I am liking this show a lot more than I thought I would.. and the second episode was a lot better than the first one.

I do think that the show would be approximately 40% less cool without Hiro, though
Jenexamorata on October 4th, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC)
Agreed that the second was better than the first. I'm officially intrigued.

Also I don't much cotton to Clea DuVall as a blonde.
