Heroes
4x03: Ink



OMFG!?
:O

MATT'S PSYCHOSIS GETS MORE AND MORE ~INTRICATE~ WITH EVERY SCENE, LMAO.

One of two things is happening here:
a) Matt's subconscious is conjuring up this image of Sylar because Matt can't deal with what he's done, is doing, and wants to be doing. He's tricking himself so his eventual breakdown feels somewhat justified. (Since he's always been the unassuming type, I could easily buy this.)
b) ~Sylar's soul~ is indeed stuck in Matt's mind. (This is infinitely stupid, and I wouldn't put it past these writers.)
In any case, Matt fails entirely at ignoring whatever it is. Then again, he's never been depicted as the sharpest crayon in the box, so I have no major problems with this.


Nathanites Never Say Die
Wtf happened to the body anywayz?!??!

This episode needed 100% moar Pasdar. Trufax.

Also, Peter not getting the memo re: losing his brother = epic sadtiems. Now watch as the show fails to deliver.


Mohinder Watch
Have you seen a sexy geneticist?

Well, on the plus side, at least he didn't become a busboy in some random Indian restaurant in Arlington? Nor was he that random body on a gurney at the end of the episode? That's... good, right? -_-


Okay, cool.
(I begrudgingly liked this...)

Claire standing up for Gretchen was great. As was Noah getting his drink on whilst on the phone with her at the end. He has beer in his fridge at last, yaaay! My kingdom for a drunk!HRG scene. I can't decide if Gretchen is still a creepy stalker with a shady agenda or a bonafide innocent outcast, but either way I'm enjoying this storyline. And Claire misses Lyle! :O

Gods help me, I can't help feeling some modicum of sympathy for Samuel. The lady at the house he grew up in was a moron and, yeah, I'm glad she's dead.

Matt's head!Sylar is hilarious. Also if it's really only Matt's inconscious at work, "I ooze charm" becomes 465442 times more revealing of his own proclivities. (Not that we didn't always have an inkling, what with the whole moving in and raising a kid with Mohinder thing, before that fell through.) Or if that doesn't float your boat, there's still FYG-verse parallels to be drawn. I think Matt's always been helplessly attracted to the dark side, and this is yet more evidence.

Emma seems interesting so far, and the VFX for her synesthesia were super-pretty. The transitions to her scenes were always nifty, too. I just hope she wasn't only brought in to come between Peter and Hesam be a pointless ~love interest~.


I call shenanigans!
(... but let me tell you how you still suck.)

Why does Samuel get two different powers? D: I'm still not down with this whole ink manipulation business. It's just awful, lol.

I'm still not a fan of the head!Sylar story. Haha, if it sounds like I'm contradicting myself, I just think they're executing a crappy idea very well, given the parameters.


Brain Crumbs
Scattered thoughts

For the first time ever last night, I was able to watch the East Coast feed live! These are some of the comments I made on the ongoing post @ [livejournal.com profile] fly_by_day as I watched the show.

- LOL HAVE YOU SEEN YOURSELF EAT A BURRITO :(
- That Trauma show doesn't look like it'll save NBC, lol.
- Aww, Claire misses Lyle!
- LOL STALKER! WEST/GRETCHEN OTP. They're even the same height, lol.
- lmao poor Peter, his life is so sad :(
- By the by, NEEDS MOAR HESAM
- LOL SAMUEL IS SHOPPING FOR A NEW SPECIAL BROTHER
- I like Emma.
- JEEZ, PUSHY MUCH, GRACIE SHEFFIELD?
- In other news, I love Claire this year. And Hayden.
- ALL IN FAVOR OF CALLING THE HAITIAN, RAISE YOUR HAND! *raises hand*
- YAY HESAM!! HI HESAM, HIIIIIIIIII!
- ...AND THAT, PETER, IS WHY YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BOYFRAN
- NEEDS MOAR ~NATHAN (what? It worked for Hesam.)
- DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE? I APPROVE.
- LOL HRG GETTING HIS DRINK ON. I APPROVE ALSO!
- LMFAO AT THE PERP'S FACE! AS IF MATT'S OR ANYONE'S FISTS COULD DO THAT MUCH DAMAGE WITH LIKE 4 BLOWS
- HALE NOES PARKMAN, YOU DO NOT LET YOUR PSYCHOSIS BOSS YOU INTO TAKING AWAY MY PASDAR! >:|

Ahem. Sorry about the capslock. Ongoing posts are exciting, what can I say? :D


Hotass o' The Week
Half the reason I keep watching


Hesam ♥



HBIC o' The Week.
Head Bitch In Charge

I have to give it to Claire this week for her awesome "BITCH DON'T EVEN D:" moment when HRG was ready to call the Haitian and ~take care of~ Gracie Sheffield.


Ship o' The Week
lol romance?

Peter/Hesam still! I am not jumping ship until, like, Hesam dies or something (sad day). But runner-up has got to be Gretchen/West. They can bond over their stalker tendencies and their obsession with Claire. MFEO!


Best line
I may or may not quote this irl

"Partners? Man, you run off the second we get on the scene. I'm your chauffeur." Aw. <\3

I also loved HRG's and Claire's phone conversation, the whole "did you rehearse that speech" bit. Hee!


Most burning question?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! *flails*

Why the haaale are they cutting that INTERESTING bit about Edgar and Lydia not being allowed to have friends outside the carnival and having sekrit childruns and stuff out of the show, and relegating it to online content half the viewers won't even bother to check out? Huh? WHYYYY?! Seemed a good opportunity to flesh out the characters.

The mind. It boggles.

Overall,
I liked this episode. I'm not OMG IN LOVE with this volume yet, but aside the absence of certain beloved characters of mine, nothing really made me cringe and want to spork my own eyes out.

I LOVE THIS STYLE OF YOUR REVIEWS, FYI. I APPROVE!

UGH, HEROES, I HAVE MISSED THEE!







NEEDS. MORE. PASDAR.

Thank you my dear. :D

How are you liking the new season so far?

I just think they're executing a crappy idea very well

LOLOLOLOL, that is so true. I guess it's better than executing a great idea very badly, which is what they kept doing last season. I can't say I really care, though. I don't feel as invested in the show anymore so I don't mind the crappy writing as long as I get some sort of enjoyment out of the scenes, and the Matt/Sylar scenes have been lulzy to watch. Actually, I'm probably enjoying most storylines, with the exception of some of the carnival stuff and the Hiro/Ando/Kimiko storyline. Huh. The Key to Enjoying Heroes? Not Giving a Shit.

Oh, and just to throw my two cents on the Matt thing, I don't think he has Sylar's ~soul~ stuck in his mind, but I think that some of Sylar's memories might have bled into his subconscious and they're manifesting themselves as head!Sylar. Or something. IDK.

Haha, seriously. I'm so glad to be in that place now. *facepalms in remembrance of last season*

You could be onto something with the Matt-Sylar thing. I didn't consider it... seemed too stupid? I should have remembered, NOTHING is too stupid for Heroes, lulz.

Gretchen/West LULZ!

I like the idea that Matt is actually making Sylar up. That would make sense for some of the wackiness of Sylar. Cause I think he's a bit more over the top then usual. but I dunno. I also wouldn't be upset if they somehow separated Sylar somehow... like part of his conciousness is in Parkman and part is in Nathan. That would get nonsensical but it already is nonsensical. I've put too much thought into this and have loads of crap on it but I will stop myself now. But I agree, its a crappy idea that's been done well so far. Its at least making Parkman's story a whole lot more interesting.

I am SO happy that the body wasn't Mohinder's. i thought it was going to be during the previews for the season a while back.

And Samuel doesn't have two different powers. He can move ink around cause it is made from materials of earth. That's what I'm getting from it.

and I agree about the Edgar and Lydia stuff. Should be in the show.

Trufax, lol. What I'm getting from the show so far is this: ~Nathan = blank slate. It's Sylar's body, with Nathan's ~conscience in it. Take that away, you got yourself an amnesiac Gabriel Gray. Matt's vision = Sylar's ~soul. I don't like it so I try to rationalize other, actually PLAUSIBLE (in terms of Matt's psychology) explanations. It's not really working though, I can't fool myself. XD

All of us Mohinder fans kind of freaked out when that promo came out, not gonna lie! LOL. Thank goodness. Show needs more LIVING Mohinder (and we don't mean the lizard either XD)

I love that theory about Samuel's ink! The ~subtext~ around it seems to indicate it is a special-made ink, so I'll go with your idea because it makes me happy. :D

What I want to know is how can Samuel transfer his power to Peter and Peter not figure out what the hell Samuel can do? SHOW MAKE SENSE PLEASE!

From: [identity profile] gossy16.livejournal.com
I know, it's so confusing! I didn't even realize that's what happened, lol. Should prove interesting if Peter tries to use a different ability and all he gets is his stupid compass tattoo spinning on and on. XD

I definitely agree, needs more Pasdar *uses Pasdar icon*

Trufax! Adrian Pasdar is awesome and should be in every scene episode.

Have you seen yourself eat a burrito?

LOL. 'THIS' SYLAR IS TOO HILARIOUS. I DON'T KNOW IF MATT COULD HAVE MADE HIM UP. MATT'S NOT THAT AWESOME.

Haha, dude, Matt has some serious self-esteem ISSUES, loooool.

And your icon is too awesome for words, just saying. :D

Why does Samuel get two different powers? D: I'm still not down with this whole ink manipulation business.

Like someone mentioned above I think he has special ink that consists of some earth components and that is why he can control it. Makes me wonder if his black nail polish isn't polish at all but he keeps putting his hands in ink jars...

Peter/Hesam still! I am not jumping ship until, like, Hesam dies or something (sad day).

Hesam, don't give up! He seemed pretty disappointed and much less flirty in this episode. Peter has to invite him to dinner now to make it up to him.

See, this is why getting outside input is awesome! You guys are totally right about Samuel's ink, I'm now sure of it. :D Thanks for ~opening my eyes~ lol.

Haha, totally! And Peter can be so oblivious sometimes, goddamn. How many more times need Hesam bare his feelings? XD <3

HOW DID YOU WATCH THE SHOW LIVE???

Also, Peter not getting the memo re: losing his brother = epic sadtiems.
I did not realise this until you just pointed it out :(

Why does Samuel get two different powers? D:
I am thinking the ink might be special all byt itself?

No Haitian D: I like Gretchen.

Yep, [livejournal.com profile] dref22 said it: Justin TV! Here's the exact link: http://www.justin.tv/boxlive2

It's pretty shitty quality, but I don't even care, it's LIVE OMG OMG!

I meant to reply sooner and then other things kept distracting me. Fail. But I'm really hoping you can make it tonight omfg! :D I'm gonna partying in capslock at the live post, it would awesometastic if you were there as well. XD

The ink probably has earth mixed into it, as some very clever people pointed to me. *nods*

lmao I don't know if he was BUT THAT WOULD BE SO BADASS AND AWESOME! BADAWESOME! XD
