While Heroes has been my favourite show this year, I thought it peaked with “Five Years Gone” and slid into a bit of an anti-climax for the finale. It was all a bit contrived — Peter just loses control of his radiation power, even when he had twice before been able to control it? Sylar just stands there while Hiro yells, runs and stabs him, when he had been able to stop him and snap his sword two episodes ago? Claire shooting Peter would be a bad thing but Nathan sacrificing himself is OK?
I’m really looking forward to Season 2 as well, but I hope they can wrap it up better than they did with Season 1.
I didn’t get why Nathan had to sacrifice himself to fly Peter into the sky. Peter could have just flown himself.
To get all geeked out, Ted’s power would intensify – and become difficult to control – when he was wound up, and why would it be any different for Peter? And just because he can ‘borrow’ other people’s powers doesn’t mean he can access them at will – let alone control ‘em.
And come on, didn’t anyone get a wee bit choked up when Nathan said, “You saved the cheerleader, so we could save the world.” Not really where I saw him ending up at the beginning – or even a couple of weeks ago. Hell, Linderman’s cured your wife who was crippled in an accident you blame yourself for. You’re on the fast track to The White House as part of a grand design your family has been involved in since the beginning to usher in world peace and all that lovely stuff… and all you have to do is be anyplace else than Kirby Plaza, and let your brother, daughter and millions of strangers die.
And I wouldn’t assume either Petrelli brother is ‘sacrificed’ yet — apparently both actors have re-signed for next season, but when we’re talking about a televisual comic book that could mean almost anything.
TV3. Tuesdays 11:17pm. Started last week.
So I can stop pushing the DVDs on everyone I meet. Still, the graveyard shift is a bugger. OK, I thought it was really unlikely to get the Staurday 7.30 slot again given it gets really, really dark but just take a look at the shit they put on between 8.30-10.30.

No, I was busy thinking “hang on – you’re saying it’s better for both Peter and Nathan to die than it is for just Peter to die?” The only upside seemed to be the Claire wouldn’t have to suffer the trauma of shooting her own uncle — instead she just got to watch both her uncle and her father explode…
Sure, you could easily construct a scenario where they both survived (in fact, “Five Years Gone” showed explicitly that Peter would survive exploding), but as far as both characters knew, they were sacrificing their lives.
Anyway, the point is you can justify the events of the finale, but if it had been better written, you wouldn’t be required to.
surresh could’ve just killed syler when he knocked him out with the bookcase a few episodes back, but instead decided to take peter back to his aunt’s and leave syler and the gun back at his house. then he returns to his house later assuming syler would be gone
the ending was crap, it wasn’t ’til then though that i myself realised i’d just wasted 23(?) hours of my life watching the season. can’t be fucked with season 2 really
