Erm...okay - Lee - Nyuszi

Heroes



A-HA! Eden is/was evil! She was facing jail and Bennet gave her a way to straighten out her life. But will it stick? Is it all an act? We shall see.

Can we drop Mohinder's overly-dramatic, supposedly profound, but actually cliche ridden voice-overs? Please.

If it hasn't been written already, someone is now writing Peter/Nathan incest slash.

Wow. A lot happened in six months. Couldn't they have made it a year?

Personally, I think Hiro talking to Hiro would make the universe expload, unless it was the Stargate universe which defies physics and logic.

Nathan learned he could fly at a really bad time. I wonder who wanted to run them off the road? The mob?

Nikki's split personality/evil twin is the result of childhood abuse. Dear writers of ALL TV shows, let's drop this tired cliche.

The reason I should have been paying closer attention is because I seemed to have missed something in regards to Sylar going all psycho killer. Hiro wants to be special too, but he's not going around dissecting people's brains to do it. I did like the actor though. Can we keep him and dump Mohinder? Seriously, do we need him on the show?

Btw, they gave us Eden and now Gabriel? Real subtle people.

Tonight I tried to explain the Lee/Kara relationship to reckleslinguist who just started watching BSG this season and thus doesn't get what the potentially big deal is about this weeks ep. I'm thrilled to bits she's watching after all my threats coaxing, but have you ever tried to summerize that relationship to someone new to the show?

Note to joools, I like all music accept country, rap, and teen pop. ;)

One of my friends has been trying out BSG a little bit and I told her how excited I was for the next episode because I love this pairing so much, so she's probably going to watch. But now I'm thinking "Oh no, it's not gonna make any sense!" I mean, even if she's able to follow the basic plot within the episode, the full meaning will be lost cause she won't know the history, no matter how long the previouslies are. :) Even in EW this week it says something like "if you're new to the show, this isn't the episode to jump into it." I didn't even try to summarize Lee/Kara for her, I just said something like "they're angsty and I love them."
Yeah, she read my recap of the scene showing on On Demand and was somewhat confused (most likely by the debate generated in discussion) because, thus far, all she has seen is indifference between them. I tried to fill her in as best I could though I did feel compelled to mock some of the writing that has brought us to this point. ;)

My friend had just caught an episode or two this season, so since there has been no Lee/Kara at all I don't think she got any sense that there was something there. Or that they even knew each other. :) There's been build-up to this episode, but it's mostly been off-screen, ya know? If someone just started watching this season, I think this episode will seem pretty "Huh?" because a lot of the context for it was from last year and the first season.

Well, obviously that can't be avoided. :)
Oh, *I'll* explain Lee/Kara to Jack. ;-)

Also, yes re: Nikki/Jessica...Methinks someone is a huge fan of One Life to Live 'caus eI kid you not, Nikki/Vicki was a split personality on there for the same reason. Oh and her daughter's name is Jessica. ::rolls eyes in a monumental fashion::

But the rest I kind of love.
Hey, I gave a very fair representation of their relationship including acknowledgment of kissing and near-sexing. *You* just need to work on hauling her into chat. :p

I actually thought this was one of the better episodes of 'Heroes' though the show has yet to come anywhere close to squee-worthy for me.
I loved that relationship from the first scene I saw them in together ('Act of Contrition', I think). I don't care if they just stand about in silence and scowl at the floor at each other... it's all dramatic gold.
Personally, I think Hiro talking to Hiro would make the universe expload, unless it was the Stargate universe which defies physics and logic.
I loved his total WTF look.

I was surprised he didn't save Charlie because usually in TV the hero always saves the girl. Of course, they mitigated the tragedy of her death with the blood clot and the fact she could have died at any moment.

ohhhhhkaaaaaay...

I actually DO have gregorian chant.

*smiles winsomely

what about bag pipes? bag pipes are nice.

OR, I DID just score what could possibly be every album Clannad ever made, how 'bout that?

*blinks innocently
You are correct, it was the mob who ran Nathan and Heidi off the road, because Nathan, who works for the DA's office, was being pressured by his boss to prosecute a particular mobster who also had ties to his dad.

Funny thing - the actor who plays Nathan (why can't I remember his name) auditioned to play Milo's (Jess') father in the defunct Gilmore Girls spinoff; he was too young, of course, but the producers thought that he and Milo would be great playing brothers :)

As for Gabriel, I believe he was a very unhappy and disturbed person to begin with; he was unhappy being in what he felt was an unexceptional family, thought he was destined for greater things before Soresh found him. Unfortunately, it seems Soresh created a monster. I'm with you, Mohinder can go without anything missing a beat.

Ah yes, Vicki/Nikki of One Life To Live; I hear her daughter Jessica has followed in her footsteps and now has her own evil twin ;)
Ah, yes. Jessica also had another personality called, are you ready for it? Tess. And, yep, you guessed it - Tess was created as the result of childhood sexual abuse. Apparently, when Nicki was in charge of Vicki's body she wasn't the best mommy and let Jessica become the victim of some horrible old man. Ah. Soaps.
Yes, soaps are the one fixed point in a changing world :) And didn't Vikki acquire another personality?
I seem to remember her having at least two more besides Nicki. One was a toughie named Tori and the other was a little girl named Princess.

Cool trivia! Thanks for sharing. :)

And I never thought I'd see the day where One Life to Live is discussed in my LJ. =/
Let me say again that I thought you did a great job explaining. Of course, a naked Jamie Bamber will probably send all my newfound knowledge right out of my head. ;)

Personally, I think Hiro talking to Hiro would make the universe expload, unless it was the Stargate universe which defies physics and logic.

Scary as it is to admit this, I had the exact same thought on both Hiro and Stargate.
Naked Jamie? What were you saying? ;)

Scary as it is to admit this, I had the exact same thought on both Hiro and Stargate.

Um, great minds? Sort of OT, the one thing I hate about Stargate is Sam explaining quantum physics seemingly ALL the time. In an ep I saw recently, Sam from a parallel universe shows up having just lost her husband Jack to a Goa'uld (sp) invasion and I just loved AT to death as that Sam. But then the other Sam showed up and tried to explain everything and kiled the moment. :/
heroes:
Is it me or they have too many father issues per hour there? Especially the last episode with Nikki's dad in the mix...(I am just starting watching, so I am more confused then others).
Re: heroes:
Huh. I hadn't thought about it, but there are a lot of father issues and no mother issues. That seems rather odd.
Every week I think I should pay better attention to this show, but I never do. Only about 1/2 the characters hold my interest, so I keep drifting away.

But yes, Mohinder can go away and we'd never miss a beat.
Hiro, Mr Bennet, Claire, Matt and Nathan get me to look up from what I'm doing. The others, not so much. Though Sylar could be interesting.
