Part of me wants to write a post that goes: "Shut up

You keep using these words. THEY DO NOT MEAN WHAT YOU THINK THEY MEAN!
And publicly begging Tim Kring to get just one science consultant on the show because everything that sprouts from Mohinder's pretty pretty mouth is Bad Science. And it's dangerous Bad Science as well. ("We know you have this one gene because you ticked a box once when having bloodwork done." - yeah, that's not a going to further genetic 'privacy' hysteria, is it?) But what's the point? Heroes
is not about science. It's never been about science, and trying to make it so would ruin it. I just wish Kring had used plot hooks that weren't such blatant factual lies
OK, I liked the last episode, I did. I liked it, plot-wise, and it gave me fuzzies, but the resolution was... weak, I think the best answer is. I mean, how dare
the writers reduce Niki to a Claire-level prize whose only purpose in the long run is to give the hero strength (literally)? Are they all that stupid that they must take turns at doing him in (was it bookelfe
who compared it to a FF battle)? What's wrong with piling on him, hmmm?
I know it was important to kill of Sylar and Peter before they become uber powerful. Because them being alive wouldn't make Vol. 2 all that fun. And I appreciate the dramatic point of Nathan dying to save New York and being all brotherly and stuff, but it really wasn't necessary. We know

, would it? They just need to let him cool out and dig the bullet out of his brain and that's OK. Oh, and have we forgotten that Peter can fly, so he didn't need to take Nathan with him?
Yeah, not buying that it was the only option. Plus, I was really really
hoping that Nathan would save the day with Yellow Crayons. I like
So yes, dramatically and narratively, yes, OK, nice, even if the family theme was laid on a little too thickly. (I still hold that it wasn't necessarily to give every single character
family issues). But it just wasn't well enough thought through.
But it's still awesome. How cool is that?
