+1

Also, next week's episode looks awesome, like what the second half of last year was like. I think it's kind of cool that they had Takezo Kensei/Adam live to the present as well, I sort of wondered how the regenerative thing would affect aging.

I love that his name is Adam. First hero? First man? OOh, I get it!

It would have been much more interesting if they would have made Claire Kenzo/Adam's kid, given that the abilities seem to pass on in some form or another from the parents to the kids. Agreed all around on the comments that this week was the best of the season so far. I'm just dreading the next episode where we'll have to see the wonder idiots and Sylar again. Ugh.

I think that the writers (if they end their strike) should read this thread and make Maya's brother able to create zombies. That would bring the show this season from bad to next level shit.

Also, I hope that they bring in a super-hero-ized version of Randy Couture to thump Sylar, who is becoming exceedingly annoying. Maybe Super Randy could just throw Maya, annoying brother, and annoying Sylar all into deepspace, then retreat back to the super Octagon.

Does anyone else think that the reason Sylar cannot use his powers is that he is infected with the virus?

Since you liked my zombie idea, here's some more stuff for the scab writers to plagiarize off the interweb for the rest of the season:

Sylar cannot use his powers because he is being held in a "nightmare coma". He's being held there by Parkman Sr. (who is working with Adam/Kenzo) who rescued him after his fight with Peter at the end of last season.

The whole wonder twins storyline is some sort of randomized loop created so that Sylar won't catch on that he's imprisoned inside a dream. Twins are running, they get captured, they use their powers to escape, they run, they get captured, etc.

Eventually, Sylar will realize he's trapped in a maze and bust out with a vengeance. Except, he won't wake up, he'll bust out of his dream, and into all the other ones that Parkman Sr. has woven over the years. Sylar will be able to learn the powers of anyone who's mind Parkman Sr. has ever read in preparation for another showdown with Peter.

This would wrap too many things up, and the randomized loop idea is far too clever to be used. Therefore, I circular file this

It wouldnt be any more of a wrap up than the end of season one. Plus we'd finally get to find out what Ms. Petrelli/Kaito Nakamura/and Werner Brandis (Ned Ryerson, Ned "the head" - Case Western High! Bing!!) etc's powers are.

Always best to go about your show as if every season is your last.

This week's episode was better. The twins storyline still sucks. Also, Kristen Bell is hot.

+1 to both. Interesting to see if they will play it straight with Adam/Kensei. I still don't believe he's a do-gooder.

I'm expecting Adam to eventually meet Hiro in the present and try to kill him again.

Yeah, so do I. But I think they'll have him be up to something on a bit larger scale as well. Somehow, I think he's more wrapped up in this virus thing then they've let on.

Interesting article -- Heroes producer apologizes for season 2 suckiness. Seems like he understands the source of the problems. Too bad he's on strike now:

It sure started off pretty mediocre, but the last 2-3 episodes have been pretty good.

Does anyone know about what time the writer's strike is supposed to end the appearance of new episodes for all shows?

Depends on the show. Some have a bunch of completed episodes, others don't. IIRC, Heroes has nothing in the can after next week's episode because there was a planned break. Lost will start up in February with only 7-8 episodes completed pre-strike.

A friend of mine who works in TV production says that the prevailing view among his peers is that the strike will end, and production restart, in Feb '08. I don't know if that's the hunger threshold when everyone runs out of money, or if there is some other reason for 2/08 being an operative time frame.

Yeah, it's called an extra long holiday vacation.
