Let's Talk About Television: Heroes 3x14 - A Clear and Present Danger

Well, that was better than the last few episodes, that's for sure.


On the upside, we can forget all about the last volume, for the most part, and move forward.  While I didn't hate the first half of the season as a lot of others, it definitely had its problems.

Unfortunately, this volume has its own to deal with.

Hiro is...kinda creeping me out.  Ok, I understand trying to hold onto something, to keep fighting crime.  I can buy getting the firehouse (Watch out for those ghosts), getting the gadgets and such, but really...to force a tracking chip into your friend against his will?  That's getting into some weird areas I'm not sure I want to associate with Hiro.  Interesting parallel with the civil rights being stomped on to round up heroes, though.  And that's probably on purpose.

Everyone acted like they had something like a brain in their head, or at least more of one than they exhibited during the previous volume.  Putting almost the entire cast we care about in such jeopardy as they did with tonight's cliffhanger (Something the show is still pretty good at), is definitely a way to keep my attention for now.

And they've decided to stop pretending and make Peter into pretty blatantly Rogue, I see.

Better than the worst, but not as good as the better.  A thoroughly average episode.

Your thoughts?
