So who watches Heroes? [spoilers] (in Off-topic)

Mem December 3 2007 10:12 PM EST

What'd you think of the season finale?

QBOddBird December 3 2007 10:18 PM EST

Great, but I wonder if Peter got it.

(I'm trying to be as vague as I can for those who have not seen the finale.)

I also wonder who the person walking from the crowd was.

Victimizer December 3 2007 10:20 PM EST

It was very interesting, and I can't wait for the next season.

Mem December 3 2007 10:24 PM EST

I like how they were vague in saying that Heroes will return in 2008... God bless the writers' strike.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 4 2007 7:50 AM EST

Never got into prime-time television. Come to think of it, the last time I saw TV was about a week ago. And it was the Discovery Channel ;)

Aargh [Closer to the Stars] December 4 2007 7:59 AM EST

I made the stupid mistake of lending the DVD to my sister before I finished watching it myself... I still haven't gotten it back. ;_;

I've only seen it up to the point where the cheerleader 'dies' and wakes up in the morgue.

Mem December 4 2007 11:39 AM EST

Man, you're really behind...

Aargh [Closer to the Stars] December 4 2007 1:19 PM EST

I know. I usually can't watch it when it's on TV (I suppose I could have taped it but that's hindsight) so I got the DVD, but now my sister has it and I keep bugging her to give it back with no success...

MudBug The Redeemer December 5 2007 7:43 PM EST

yeah, it's almost like being buried alive..... heres to 2008!

QBBarzooMonkey December 5 2007 8:32 PM EST

Flying man!

I think Hero's is one of the greatest new shows on, it is very original and much different then all the others. Most of the shows that are on now are all about the same type thing, murder investigations and hospitals, but don't get me wrong I love all the CSIs, criminal minds, and House is awesome, oh oh and The Unit is one of my favorites also, sorry got sidetracked. I never got into the primetime tv stuff either till I got kids and now that is my only break, tvo my shows and watch them after the kids go to bed.

The Finale was ok, I wish there was more, but that is why they make the finales so crazy because they want to leave you wanting more.

I don't want to ruin it for anybody else so this is hard to talk about it without giving away stuff. I just wonder if what pete did with the virus wasn't the best thing to do.

oh and another thing that has been bothering me, they say the only way to kill adam or pete is a bullet thru the head, well that one guy got a bullet to the head and he was brought back with clair's blood so how can a bullet kill those guys if they have the same powers as clair and the same power in their blood.

Oh and does anybody remember of pete ever was in contact with or got close to Linderman, because if he did then he should have Linderman's abilities but I have never seen him use them.

wow this is long sorry guys but I love this show, so kinda like talking about it.

Mem December 6 2007 11:10 AM EST

Peter never got close to Linderman.

The only thing that bothered me at all about Peter this whole season, was the fact that he just so blindly followed this Adam character. It seemed to suggest to me that Adam has some sort of mind control powers. He never really did anything for Peter that should make him disbelieve all these things that people Peter already knew were telling him. It just didn't make much sense.

At any rate, that's the only beef I had with the whole thing. They got everything else right, though.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] December 6 2007 1:43 PM EST

I haven't seen it yet, added [spoilers].

Little Anthony December 6 2007 1:45 PM EST

Peter can read mind, yes? He met Matt a while back and yet still can't read Adam's mind to find out the truth.

AdminG Beee December 6 2007 2:05 PM EST

Peter isn't exactly the smartest...

I think if you start looking for detail and logic in a TV show like this you'll end up finding more holes in the plot than anything else.

I still found it entertaining though and it's one of the few shows that wifey and I actually watch together.

Will the fly boy make his way back via some new blood or is he now out of the series.
As for Adam, ouch what a way to "go". If he wasn't crazy before, then he certainly will be after some time locked in the box underground...

What's going on with this writers strike btw? There was supposed to be 24 episodes this season and yet it's ended with only 11 !

j'bob December 6 2007 2:38 PM EST

An, yes pete can read minds, if he could remember that he could read them.
Lets not forget he had his memory taken away which is keeping him from being able to use "all" of his powers. and as i was thinking with someone earlier, nathan has already had a dose of the "healing" blood, like noah, but is it only good for that one shot, or does the effect stay with you? i'm guessing just the once, if only to keep syler from having the invincible healing permanently, thus continuing his quest for the cheergirl

AdminG Beee December 6 2007 2:51 PM EST

Didn't Peter read the woman's mind just before Adam shot and killed her?

Victimizer December 6 2007 11:50 PM EST

I was talking with j'bob earlier, and now am making an official prediction.

Nathan's Assassin is... Noah Bennet. His deal to keep his family safe is to work for the company again, first mission, keep Flying man quiet.

QBOddBird December 6 2007 11:59 PM EST

Stupid Nathan.

QBsutekh137 December 7 2007 12:17 AM EST

Nathan was never very smart.

I remember when he ate my popcorn and drank a bunch of my rum and then said he didn't do it as he stumbled around drunk amidst the tiny, putrid remains of popcorn all over the kitchen floor.

I pointed. He learned. I think.

Stupid Nathan.

MudBug The Redeemer December 7 2007 9:18 PM EST

and the fact that the assassin has the same profile as he's walking away didn't hold much to the imagination.... I swear I could see the profile of his glasses from far away.

SNK3R December 7 2007 9:23 PM EST

Peter's a lame character. "Oh, I can steal your ability and use it. Thanks, now eat dust/die."

Just you wait until Sylar and Peter rule the world together... ;)

After all, Volume 3: Villains. That's right, more than one.

Then again, Mem's probably advocating with the writer's strike, so maybe we won't see another volume...

AdminG Beee December 7 2007 9:24 PM EST

Nope, it has to be less obvious that Noah.

I'm going for an as yet unknown (or little known) character.

j'bob December 7 2007 9:51 PM EST

For now at least, I'm inclined to agree with Duredhel. Noah did tell his family when he returned from the dead that he'd made a deal that would keep them safe.
BUT, how do you just shoot someone in a press conference and just vanish... unless you can VANISH.
or maybe fly away?
dum dum dummmmmmm. (evil sounding music)

SNK3R December 7 2007 10:13 PM EST

You can see someone walking out of the press conference room...somebody didn't vanish.

j'bob December 7 2007 10:24 PM EST

Well, duh. You don't wanna vanish in the middle of the room, that would defeat the purpose of killing the guy that was gonna out the peeps with all the fancy powers. You go around the corner (what we saw him do) and THEN you vanish. Or fly away. Sheesh.

AdminG Beee December 7 2007 10:26 PM EST

On reflection (always best to reflect at 3:30am) I think Peter shot Nathan.

Yup, I know he was standing next to him, but I think it was Peter from the future who came back and shot him when he realised that as a result of the press conference and Nathan "telling the world" about their super powers everything went bad.

Mem December 8 2007 5:11 AM EST

You're darn right I advocate the writers' strike, but that doesn't mean it will never be resolved. These things take time, but when both sides are losing out on 8 figures a day you can rest assured that something will be settled. And soon.

I have no idea what's in store for next season, and you all have some pretty wild ideas that I'm sure would make for great television, so I know someone is going to come up with something really neat for Heroes. I can't wait.

I'm too drunk for this.

Mem December 8 2007 12:04 PM EST

And now I have an awesome hangover...

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] December 9 2007 12:45 AM EST

I like Heroes, but damn.. That show has a few plot holes of its own. Plus the super-powers mean the writers can be really lazy and kill and or bring characters back to life at will.

Khardin December 9 2007 1:26 AM EST

Heroes tends to be a little too much of a soap opera for me..

I like it visually.. I think it's very clean cut and has a great use of color: having people dressed similar to their surroundings and using very vibrant colors.

I was thinking about the finale and it struck me that when a show gets enough momentum, it's easy to leave a cliff hanger like who shot Nathan and wait for the public reaction and speculation and decide who the shooter was later. A sticking point in a lot of fiction for me can be how some parts of the plot can be arbitrary. Any number of theories could fit the scenario and it often feels as though the writer just picked one for no real reason. The conclusion wasn't planned, the incident was and then the conclusion was picked. That type of thing.

Villains seems like an interesting area to explore since the characters seem to be left in this gray area. The encounter between the cheerleader and her bf is a good example. Self-interest leading to antisocial behavior and what not.

SNK3R December 9 2007 1:31 AM EST

Khardin! Post more often! :)

Mem December 9 2007 7:45 AM EST

While I agree with you on that point, Khardin, I don't think you're taking into account that it was a shortened season due to the strike. Of course they hadn't planned on ending it that way. That's why it was actually really well written-- they had to come up with something on the fly.

Relic December 9 2007 11:29 AM EST

Could the flying cheerleader bf have shot Nathan? He said he liked the solitude and having his secrets...
