Heroes -- "Better Halves" -- 10.30.2006


"Better Halves"

A Las Vegas high-roller offers Hiro and his friend a deal they cannot refuse; Claire meets with her biological parents; Isaac receives another confusing phone call.

So, we know Nathan wins the election on 11/7 and the bomb hits 11/8. With the next episode coming on 11/6, are we to think that we're seeing this psuedo-realtime? At least inasmuch as that show and our time synch up.

Can't wait for tonight, but they better get that storyline moving with a quickness so we aren't seeing a November election in May.

Save The Cheerleader

Save The World

I'm still of the mind that the reason for this is that Peter will need her invulnerability when he assimilates the powers of the other heroes in fighting Sylar.

Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, actually worked at ILM (and still does some work for them from time to time, he said it makes him remember all of the hard-working people on the other side of the camera, and keeps him grounded).

Check out the visual effects work he's done:

Balls of Fury (2007) (post-production) .... Jeff



but yeah, his behind the scenes stuff is impressive. I wonder if the other guys he works with resent him for it...heh. But it'd still be pretty cool to be working on Pirates and T3.

'You guys go to the bathroom together?'

'Yes. That how we roll.'



Hiro and his friend are always the highlight of the show.

Ahhh, so Eden's role is finally revealed. At least she wasn't an 'evil lady', so they get a little credit there.

When Eden called Claire's dad and said "..save the cheerleader" his pupils totally dilated. I am sitting really close to the tv, I guess. lol

pretty sweet episode. hiro is starting to get more and more exciting as the weeks move on. seems like claire has figured out the role of her step-father.

Spoiler:
it will be interesting to see what mini-bilson does to bring issac in. so did DL kill her or asborb her power or something along those lines?

disappointing ep.

the Hiro stuff was gold (as usual), but Ali's stuff made the show draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. if you're going to focus on her that much, at least think of a reason for her to lose some clothing..

next week's looks very promising..

Nah, I think she is just unconscious and her "evil" self may take full control for awhile, or her two parts will join revealing her full power.



Off topic of the plot, did anyone else have trouble with their HD broadcast of this? Mine had music, but no voice audio. Commercials worked, but not the actual show. This happened both over the air and with cable.

Given Masi(Hiro)'s ILM background, Hiro's lightsabering in the car after he finds out his future self has a sword was hilarious. Hiro and Ando are quite a duo.

The Niki subplot did occupy a little too much time, but at least we finally got to see Dark Niki in action, as well as DL's power as well.

Claire's subplot was also purposefully uncomfortable and unconvincing, but her stepdad seems to be pulling a lot strings, including siccing Eden on Mohinder and then Isaac.

thought it was a decent episode. i didn't think the niki story dragged on but find her character and relationship with dl so confusing.
