Finally just watched Heroes 2:01.

Now, I have an original-universe OC, name of Rebekah, who has superstrength and resistance (but no healing or speed), and is also the brains of the operation, being naturally intelligent and a total geek, but with super-strength as her power.

I invented her just to punch Mohinder in the face when he started sprouting science. And this episode? PUNCHING HIM MORE.

Also, was that a biology class or a chemistry class or a History of Science class, that had students studying Darwin with blazing Bunsens?

And I'm also finally watching the unaired pilot, and it suddenly occurs to me that this set the standard for the appalling science. Solar Eclipse as a global event? Seriously what were they smoking?

BUT. Someone has to app Kensei now to stop me doing so. Srsly.

Uh, spoilers in comments.

I can't believe Heroes came up with a character that didn't break my Rule.

Oh, god, the Bunsen burners. That + cheerleaders had me going "...Did anyone who worked on this episode actually GO to high school? Anyone?"

You mean cheerleaders aren't like that in Real Life?

(Not that I believe cheerleaders actually exist, mind you. It's too fantastic a concept.)

That did bug... cheerleaders don't practice in the gym with other students, and even if they did, there's no way a teacher (of which there'd be many) would have let any of that go on. Just... no.

Also, all the cheerleaders looked 30ish, which was hilarious.

It reminds me of the actors playing power rangers.

I was a cheerleader... the tiny one who gets tossed in the air and stuff. Good times :-)

I dunno. Our teachers were quite happy to let things like that go on. They believed in having the students sort their own problems out.

Teasing like that, maybe, yeah.

But there shouldn't have been cheerleaders doing high lifts or jumping off the tower without people spotting and at least one adult around for close supervision. That's asking for a lawsuit if anyone gets hurt, and I can't think of any school that would dream of risking it -- not any school which wasn't so short on staff that they had to cut corners like that, anyway, and this school sure didn't look that poor.

And certainly not some kid who wasn't a cheerleader going up on the tower. Even if they'd managed to sneak that in when the coach was paying attention to something else, that moment when Claire was up on the tower and everyone else was looking should have had the coach hurrying over to yell at Claire and everyone else.

(Oh, and yeah, cheerleaders might practice in the gym, but having it during school hours and normal PE is a weird arrangement. Not unheard of, but having them practice in uniform like that pretty much is.)

Or rather, I can but they all start with 's' and I already have 3 pup journals that start with 's'.

The super fast eclipse in Japan that Hiro witnessed had me headdesking too. Oh TV science lolz. I couldn't get away with that in fanfic, but lo it's in TV! Ahahahaha.

I didn't get the bunsen+Darwin thing but you're right.. that makes no fucking sense. Sigh.

I don't get the Kensei love though... he was a total ass?
30th-Sep-2007 08:12 am (UTC)
And hence the love. CLEARLY.

I could tell Kensei was white before he took his mask off... his accent when speaking Japanese was almost as bad as Noah Bennet's.

Still, I can't wait for 2:02 :-D

Class, turn on your Bunsen Burners. They are merely a plot device, but I can always hope that one of you sad little bastards will set yourself on fire, thereby relieving me of the burden of going over the same lesson for the 20th time. God, why did I become a teacher!

Am I the only one who got a Stargate vibe at the beginning?
