my personal take on 'Redemption' [Apr. 28th, 2009|12:02 pm]

10:16 PM 4/27/09 · If you follow any of the X·Men titles then you're probably familiar with the Exiles, a band of dimension hopping X·Men from multiple realities that try to fix things on different Earths. One of them was a guy named Morph, that guy on my icon, who was possessed along the way by a major baddie (to such an extent that his actual personality died) but the rest of the team used an advanced behavioral modification device to make the baddie think he was actually Morph...

...but on some levels it never fully took. There were lots of little subtle things that Morph couldn't do, turns of phrase he never used, that were all from the bad guy just under the surface.

This isn't the only time this sort of thing has happened in any number of fandoms but it is the one up front in my head at the moment. Given the mutant theme and the various similarities to the emo·sapiens of Heroes, I've been looking for any number of similar themes from that series to this one pretty much since it began.

So, how things went down at the end of the past chapter hit me as a possibility earlier in the day before I saw the episode but I hadn't worked out how, or even if, it could be applied.

See, Morph was a shapeshifter.

So, the eternal question remains...Collapse )

Angela & Socks [Apr. 13th, 2009|10:29 pm]
A open discussion about the TV show Heroes on NBC

So after watching tonight's episode with Angela interacting with her sister Alice and telling her that she brought her socks. It got me thinking back to the first episode of season one when Angela was arrested for stealing socks. Does any one think she was stealing socks because of the guilt she felt for leaving Alice behind?

Mr. Muggles will eat your soul! [Mar. 25th, 2009|02:13 pm]

10:03 PM 3/23/09 · I've maintained, literally since the very beginning of the Heroes series, that Mr. Muggles is the most insidious evil of that particular reality. It's just that other shoe that has as yet not been dropped.

I even have a list of reasons:
http://community.livejournal.com/mr_muggles_dogs/481.html

One of them is very basic but it's possible I could be wrong about it. So, if you'd clarify a particular issue I'm having, is Mr. Muggles the only dog in the series? For that matter, have you seen other pets anywhere in the Heroes universe? Any animals at all?

Little fluffy bastard probably ate them.

9:08 PM 3/23/09 · I'm watching Heroes right now, 1st commercial break, and I can't wait to see what's going to to go down this time. There's already been a few surprises...

...and it's not even XMAS yet.

I've been wondering something regarding Sylar. Since the previous chapter we know that he can use his power the way Peter used to be able to if he can establish an emotional connection with someone. That kid with the microwave projection power, whose name I'm blanking on at the moment, hung with Sylar for a bit. If they cover it in tonight's episode I may put this bit in an LJ·cut, or remove it altogether depending, but do you think they became comfortable enough with each other that Sylar has his power now even though he didn't kill the kid?

Ha ha ha, I was right!Collapse )

8:20 PM 3/10/09 · Fairly early in the series we are introduced to a woman who had the power of illusion...whose, short of looking it up, name I don't recall. Roundabout the 2nd season, or chapter if you prefer, The Company tried to use her to gain control of Sylar but he instead killed her to take her power.

That didn't go so wellCollapse )

...not that there's anything wrong with that.

8:03 PM 9/22/08 · The funny thing about Heroes is the actors. I'm watching the opening bit right now and Masi Oka (that's Hiro's real name, right?) is doing the intro. Funny thing about him, and a lot of them, is that I didn't see much of them before this.

I think.

Y'know Star Trek: Voyager? The guy that played Chakotay...I didn't recognize him when the series started but the more I watched I flashed on inconsequential roles I had seen him in years earlier. One thing on Skinimax, which is quite funny seeing as he lost a bet and had to sleep with another guy, and a Chuck Norris film even further back than that...

...and thinking about that I look to Heroes and try to do the same.

For the most part it's the guy that plays Peter. Pretty sure I first saw him on Gilmore Girls and I've got sketchy memories of other things. I know he was in the last Rocky film too but I never saw that. Kinda like as it is with all of them...though there's a few I've never seen in anything else.

Maybe.

It would probably be easier if I wasn't going just by memory...but where's the fun in that? Sure, I could pop online and get their whole acting histories if I wanted to. That's too easy and that's what I'd like you not to do answering the following questions:

  • Who on Heroes have you seen in other things?

  • Did you remember the moment you first saw them or did it take a bit into the series before it clicked?

  • Try to keep your answers to things you saw before Heroes aired.
