Last night’s episode of HEROES, for the first time ever, had me on the edge of my seat the entire hour. The show is simply doing everything right. We’re getting a great story, fantastic acting and best of all, jaw-dropping endings. Following the tradition of ALIAS and LOST’S first season, each episode of HEROES has ended with a reveal that has this TV addict wishing I could harness Hiro’s time traveling abilities and find out what happens next week.
That said, television is at its best when I’m over-analyzing, so here are a few random comments I’ll make about last night’s episode.
Hiro’s English: It really bothers me how he seemed to pick up english in about two seconds. At least the writers could have given us a plausible explanation. I’m no writer, but how about pausing time while Hiro learns english for a few minutes.
Matt Parkman: When is Matt going to meet another ‘hero’. I find it odd how every one of our heroes are interconnecting, yet Matt seems to be more concerned with saving his marriage. Ummm, not only is does the fate of the world hang in the balance, but a serial killer is on the loose as well, there are far more important things then pleasing your wife.
