4x08 "Once Upon a Time in Texas"



1) This is the second time Hiro's had to take clothes off a clothesline laterly.

2) "The brain man?" LOL. By that measure Peter is Emobang Man and Claire is Vapidgirl.

3) HELLO FIRST SEASON SYLAR. Hiro has seen him before, hasn't he? Does he recognize him?

4) I'm predicting Charlie/Sylar dubcon now. NOT HELPFUL, tippy. Actually.... really, really disgusting. Cue derisive comments about the sexualization of fandom here.

5) What's Lydia's stake in this? Is it just that she loves Samuel? This is the first time I've seen him this upset. Much more so than when he went all avalanche.

6) "Sylar Field Edition." There is certainly something funny to be said about this, but I can't think of it.

7) Sylar chatting up Charlie = way to be creepy there.

8) Now we have Butterfly Man. This is a problem. I'm guessing Matt will become Baby Man and Mohinder will become Pretty Man. No, Scaly Man. No, Invisible Man. *sigh*

9) Ahahah, I see Ando/Hiro stunt doubles in the background.

10) WHERE WAS THE HAITIAN? Who is this chickie!?? Noah! OK, what part of married does this girl not understand? I might have to kill her.

11) He mentioned Eden! YAY! This really is the season of first-season shout-outs.

12) Oh, I see, they watched the episode a thousand times and they wanted to prove it to us. They assume we've all done the same. YAWNS, show. YAWNS.

13) Mothra. Ahahaah.

14) Hiro is really getting to be a master with those dollies. So, will Stan Lee be driving the bus? (Yes, I know it's not that episode, I'm making a funny. So sue me.)

15) Mecha-mecha ikiteru. <3 Oh, Hiro, you are so cute.

16) HIRO YOU ARE OVERTHINKING THINGS.

17) THE MARLE TO MY CRONO!??!?! ARE YOU SHITTING ME!?? This show has truly given up on everyone but the hardcore geeks. I had to ask hedgehog39 about the reference.

18) Halloo, old footage. Dear show, we asked you to recapture the essence of the first season. WHY DID YOU TAKE US LITERALLY?!?

19) AND NOAH WAS NOT KISSING SOME GIRL THE DAY BEFORE HOMECOMING. You know what this is, don't you? Heroes learned that it can't introduce brand-new characters and get successful romantic relationships going. So it's tightening the wrong screw here by trying to get around the "new" bit and saying "this character's not new, you just haven't seen her before. See? Isn't the chemistry grand?" Answer: No, it isn't.

This show is doing the storytelling equivalent of Hiro going back in time again and again to save Butt Copier Boy. They're not actually breaking the bad habits, they're trying to find a cheap way around them. It's absolutely infuriating.

20) He knows about the aneurysm! She told him at the end of the Six Months Ago episode! How could he have forgotten about this? (Remembers Yaeko) OH YEAH BECAUSE HIS MIND'S A SIEVE. SRY. NEVER MIND.

21) Most. Deserved. TK. Ever.

22) AHAHAHH. Wild West showdown.

23) Hiro is just being a bit of an asshat now, isn't he? Selfish asshat. And Charlie's using personal particles that are very rare in non-native speakers. And she wouldn't hear them from his speech. Maybe he is showing her shoujo anime in between orders of pancakes. OH LEAVE ME ALONE AND LET ME HAVE MY OBLIGATORY JAPANESE SNOB MOMENT.

24) What's with all the poetry? Is this Glee or something? I like that he quoted Midsummer, though. Although Hamlet might be awesome too. Ahahhaa, Noah as Hamlet. Or Macbeth. :D

25) "You're a drama geek." TRUEST. STATEMENT. EVER.

26) "Don't blame it on the job." Blame it on the freaking WEDDING RING. For fuck's sake, Noah. Who is this woman to tell him he's not happy? At least he's sticking to his guns.

27) RIGHTEOUS SMACKDOWN FROM THE CHARLIE. Seriously, when you think about it, if she was so ready to die, what does she do now with this unplanned, empty stretch of life she hasn't planned for or saved for or anything? It's kind of sad.

28) NOAH'S JAPANESE IS BETTER THAN IT WAS LAST SEASON. AGAIN.

29) Charlie's Japanese is better, too. YAY FOR KISSES.

30) I like this new uber-badass Hiro. There's a little bit of Future!Ninja!Hiro in there. (Oh, and Samuel's pronunciation is pretty good.)

31) "Evil Butterfly Man." AHAHAH. You think Hiro will survive his new indentured servitude?

32)WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT.

Well, to be fair, Matt got an answering machine...

He left a message, didn't he?

Dude, the random blonde lady was such a waste of time. We could have had cool HRG-as-drama-geek without the shoehorned not-romance detour into nowhere. (anyway, the only woman Noah was really tempted by when he was with Sandra was Angela. trufax.)

This show is really putting itself on the bubble with me. And I was so in love just two episodes ago. They really fuck up good when they go for it!

She was, wasn't she? And the actress was babbling on about this being the first time Heroes has really done a romantic relationship. THE HELL IT WAS. This was just Maphne redux.

TRUFAX THE MOTHRA PART MADE ME LOL.

But I'm feeling better about all of this than I was earlier. I guess I'm going the opposite direction as most people. I think the show is trying to bring everything into a cohesive whole again, drawing a bunch of different storylines together, the way S1 was. It's certainly better than S3 was.

I bash my show but I love it, truly. And yes, Mothra was particularly inspired.

::snuggles you, tons and bunches::

Noah kissed a woman.

That is all.

And oh, suprise!Noaire was OH SO VERY prettah.

indeed. Although Hayden's growing up and I don't see a highschooler anymore when I look at her. Or maybe it was just the ugly wig of ugliness.
Ms Dref: Bliss - Noah/Clairebeardref22 on November 3rd, 2009 03:00 am (UTC)
Good. That makes me less pervy.

But seriously. Hayden and her wigs. Poor Hayden! D:

Cue derisive comments about the sexualization of fandom here.

Oh no sweetie, no derisive comments here. Sexualization of the fandom is sometimes the only thing that gets me through certain scenes. Not necessarily these scenes. But some scenes, for fair.

Sylar turned up the creep meter a few notches when he was talking to Charlie. Weirded me out too!

You totally read my mind with the Noah/Lauren scenes. Yeah, I'm not buying the, "They were there, swears!" We don't have to delve into every tiny detail and indescretion of the characters for every freaking flashback. Sometimes it's ok to just let them be!

And Mohinder, WTFBBQ?!
