The more time they spend on Hiro the better.

Yes. The fourth episode (last week's) was particularly crackerjack.

He’s been my favorite since the first episode. He’s so damn likable and he had (up until the end of last week) the most awesome power on the show. Now he has the most super bitchin, kick ass rockin’ awesome awesome power. Totally looking forward to this tonight.

This show would be so much better if the lost the cheerleader and larter storyline. They're the worst part of the show.

Last week's cliffhanger got me hooked.

Too bad I'll be DVRing this episode to watch my Cowboys whoop up on the Giants.

Yes, but Larter is the eye candy (unless you'd wanna see Hiro writhing in front of a webcam) and the cheerleader...well, in case you hadn't heard

Does it seem like there is a large amount of commercials? It feels like 50:50 Heroes:Commercials.

I've just begun this, and, watching the recap... I don't know if this was in the episode itself, but after showing Hiro get punched in the face, they added a "Mortal Kombat-esque" "uuggh" to the effect.

great episode. Claire's dad is so bad ass. Hiro is the man.

I just can't even imagine where this is going...and I am pumped for it.

This is the show that makes me wish the DVD season set was already here. It's the show that I most want to see the next episode. Tonight was no exception.

Loved Nathan's landing. Tres cool. His take-off, and subsequent change in direction was good for a "whoa".

Still having a laugh at the blackmail going on at the Montecito. Does Ed Deline know about this?

Ando tracking down Niki with whois. haha.

Hiro at the restaurant was cracking me up when he strikes up the semi-conversation with Nathan.

Peter is definitely going to have to get the moniker "Mimic". His completion of the painting by being near Isaac was a good use of his power, and he didn't even need to get high.

Matt using his power to spice up the home life was pretty entertaining, but his trip to the quickie mart was predictable for telepaths not know how to keep sane with a large number of minds all stressed about his gun-welding status after talking (coercing?) the would-be hold-up guy out of it.

The quarterback got "hollowed out" with a massive identity wipe (though it left his language abilities intact). That null-n-void dude is pretty badass in this respect.

yeah, he's pretty intense. intersting to see if he turns out to be good or if he really is evil as he is shown now.

So, did it looks like Larter's husband
Spoiler:
has powers too?

I thought I saw him come through a wall in the preview for next week. If this is the case, it would explain why he's so elusive from cops. It may also make for an interesting theory story if he can't go through mirrors and Larter's able to fight him someway using that.


Just a thought.

I'm so glad these people are actually getting to use their powers. I was worried that they might go all "Lost" on us and stretch out the discovery of each hero's power over the course of the season(like Lost has pretty much milked any mystery for all it's worth).
