A Brave New World

Hello once again. Its been a while since my last post. Im sure all one of you that read it missed me lol j/k. Thank you for commenting on my post. I didnt see it until recently.

I just watched the season finale of Heroes, so if I do decide to continue blogging on here, it's most likely going to be about movies or what not. I was really excited for this episode. Redemption was a great choice for the name of the season or "Volume". I think this season helped recapture some old viewers, gain some new ones, and restore faith in the series all together. Now lets get down to bidness and talk 'bout some Heroes!

I don't even know where to start here. The rift that was started between Claire and her father/H.R.G/Noah, has faded significantly. If anything I think Claire feels more close with her dad. Although I sense a different sort of "eluded tension", by her actions in this finalle. **SPOILER ALERT** (Ive always wanted to type that..)

For those who don't know, Claire jumped from the ferris wheel at the carnival, with a bunch of news cameras aimed at her. I remember the very first season when Claire was discovering her abilities, she had a friend film her jumping off this tower. Each time regenerating and saying "Im Claire Bennet and this is attempt number x." This season ended with her repeating that but to television news cameras. There seemed to be mixed emotions displayed from specials and the non specials. I don't think Noah was to excited about it.

Im still really confused about the whole Sylar thing too, for several reasons. One- How are you gonna take one of THE most baddest-ass super villans and turn him good? Even though he was evil I really liked him that way (though I always root for the good guys to beat him :p) Two- He had done this before in previous seasons where he tired a shot at "redemption" and decided, quite happily I might add, that he's always going to be a killer. Three- Even though he was exiled for "5 years" in his mind, it was only 3 hours of actual time that passed. And is five years enought to redeem a cold blooded psycho? We'll see. He did have a chance to kill Doyle and didn't.

I'm going to make a prediction about his character. I think the writers could/should, through a series of unfolding events, split his character in two. This way there is a good AND bad Sylar making for an even more interesting and maleable story line. They could even throw in some sort of twist where if one dies they both die. Making it impossible for one to kill the other, or even have to come to the others aid at times. Who knows where they could go with that.

Kind of sad to see Samuel go. Until his characters lust for power consumed him, I enjoyed his silver tounged manipulation. He nailed the role of carnival master. His character totally reminded me of the vendors for the games at fairs or carnivals. The ones where you know are rigged to make you lose but still you let yourself get sucked in. Thats how he was. You could kind of tell by his "shifty" demeanor that he probably shouldn't be trusted, but some thing about the way he worded things far overshadowed the uncertainty. He may show up later on down the line, but as far as it stands now the series ended without any hints as to who the next seasons villan will be.

Well thats my 52 cents on it. Until next time, or next season -peace out.

New to blogging, Old to Heroes

-Ok so I'm the last person in the world to get their own blog. I don't know if others share the same thoughts or ideas about the same shows as me, or even know if anyone but me is going to read this. I just really, really like the show Heroes (and a few others) and felt this would be a really good way to put my thoughts down, and maybe even connect with a few others too.

-With that being said let's talk 'bout some Heroes. I have seen every episode of every season and just watched the latest one. I think that they might have thrown us off as to whom is getting written off the show. The latest episode "Shadowboxing" shows Parkman getting shot up and hauled off to the hospital, and Sylar morphing back into Nathan and flying out of the carnival. I read on Yahoo yesterday that Adrian Pasdars character was going to be the one to get the ax. Who knows? Peter could save Parkman once he gets to the hospital. If it is inevietable that one or the other gets written off, I'd rather it be Nathan. He's flipped from douchy to non-douchy more times than Noha has.

-Also, I sensed a definate rift forming between Claire and her father. I don't know how I feel about the speed of that yet, espescially right after she just stuck up for him. On the other hand there is kind of that mysterious, lack of conscience, that he seems to exhibit when anyone threatens his daughter. I think if their is a separation between them, that his over protectiveness will be the undoing of their relationship.

-I have no idea where this season might be headed, but in my opinion this is one of the better seasons so far. I'm a pretty die hard fan, so it's going to take more than a few lack luster episodes to get me to quit watching. I don't know where this would fit in but I thought that the Chrono Trigger reference in the last episode was pretty cool. Well looks like I'm done with my first ever blog post.
