Let's Talk About Television: Heroes 3x24 - I Am Sylar

Before jumping into Heroes, I just wanna pause and say how awesome tonight's Chuck was. I rag on the show a lot, and it still deserves a lot of it, but I really enjoyed tonight's episode. Casey was great, Awesome was, well...awesome, and it was pretty action packed. Of course, I did my usual see Buy More - push fast forward routine, so it may have been worse than others, but what I watched, I really liked.

Wow, what an episode. Zach again shows he's an amazing actor. This was a brilliant look into Sylar's character. This is the show I fell in love with in the first season. If someone's not watching this show because they gave up on it, they need to take another peek. With such a large cast, it almost hurts to focus on so few characters at a time, but when its this well done, I can live with it. And this show really, really needs to do some major character work. They're well on their way for that road at least.

I really liked seeing Sylar's mother again, and what a way to bring her back. Having Sylar's crisis of faith and self come from his newfound shapeshifting abilities is a great idea, and a good allegory for how lost people can feel when they lose people. Just spot on.

Good to see Ando and Hiro making friends again, and coming to an understanding. We'll see how long that lasts. ;)

Most interesting means to show an episode title ever goes to this episode. Icky, but very cool at the same time.

A very nice idea to have everything almost coming full circle with the start of the volume, and having almost everyone at the point of a gun, or tranquilised, being taken back into custody. The fugitives have been caught. Great symmetry for the finale.

Some good chuckles at using Obama's speeches about change, and having Sylar as Nathan say how the President speaks of change, but he'll show us real change. Good weaving in real world stuff.

Just an overall enjoyable episode, and I am psyched for the finale.
