Heroes 4x04 "Acceptance" meta (heroes_meta)  


1) DVR service: $39/month.
Notebook in which to write meta: $2.99.
Seeing Bryan Fuller's name in the credits? PRICELESS.

2) Oh, confident Ali Larter. I'm always stunned at how happy I am to watch you on screen.

3) I wanna go to Ando and Kimiko's wedding.

4) Seriously? The butt-xeroxing firing offense that shames the family? Seriously?! How stereotypical Japanese bullshit can you get? Honestly.

5) Chibi Nathan ftmfw. Oh my god, the de-aged nathans are almost as pretty as the regular one. I want a boxful of Nathans for my birthday.

6) The Noaire moments were MAGICAL. As were the Nathan/Peter bromance moments.

7) Lines of the episode: "The Swiss Army Knife of powers." "You should write Mother's Day cards." "We'll take turns."

8) It seems to me that Hiro can only change the future successfully when he doesn't have an outcome in mind. He didn't want to get Kimiko and Ando together, he just wanted to stop a particular incident from happening. Maybe he can't do it unless he doesn't know what he's doing. Which is a pretty perfect description of Hiro's whole role, I guess.

9) SWOOZIE KURTZ IS A MURDERESS. Also? The moral of Heroes is quite obvious: NEVER TRUST THE MIDDLE-AGED WOMENFOLK. THEY'RE ALL AMORAL BITCHQUEENS.

10) Is it just me or was there a horrible continuity gaffe in the Angela/Nathan scene? During Company Man, they had just discovered the Haitian, right? And that was after Claire was born. So how could the Haitian have been around when Natan was a teenager?

11) Oh, look at that. Nathan has lost some brain cells along with his memories. And he's doing the I Know Better thing that is usually Peter's province.

12) I really like the direction they're going with Hiro, Kimiko and Ando. I'm a sucker for the big dramatic reveal of secret identity/existence of superpowers/yer-a-wizard-Harry, that sort of thing... and this was done in a really awesome, authentic way. Especially with Hiro's confession still lingering. I'm also a sucker for the bad-news-delivered-out-of-earshot trope (is there an actual tvtropes.org trope for that? There should be) so I loved that, too.

13) Another thing I loved: Tracy and Noah. Because they're not building to anything. They're just two characters interacting, no promises, no intent, just people relating. Which Heroes, at its best, does so well.

14) OH SHIT.

That's a good point. The show can get around it pretty easily, though, considering Angela doesn't have any option but to lie to Nathan.

You know what I'm going to to love? When the lie-detecting power starts working. Because then Nathan isn't going to be able to talk to his mom ever!

You think the writers are smart enough to come up with that? ^___^

When you said yer-a-wizard-Harry, my mind immediately jumped to my secret hope, that the revelation to Kimiko that both her brother and dad have superpowers is just a lead-in to her realization that SHE MUST HAVE POWERS TOO. Oh please, Heroes, oh please!

NEVER TRUST THE MIDDLE-AGED WOMENFOLK. THEY'RE ALL AMORAL BITCHQUEENS.
THIS.

I want a boxful of Nathans too!

I found the Noah/Claire dialogue cringeworthy. I can't beliebe Fuller wrote that.OMG emo!HRG, do not want! Angsty!emo HRG? Yes. Ater the awesomeness of the past episodes, I felt they wasted that scene.

I didn't like the Tracy/Noah interaction in that one because they acted like the hospital scene didn't happen. I'm not even a real Noacy shipper! Noah acted like, "whatevs". I know he lost his family and going tohrough a midlife crisis and all but still, that was so OOC.

All of Noah's scenes were a build up to bringing back the Company Man Noah. So, I forgive the show.

"You should write mother's day cards" made me LOL so hard. What did he say before that? When some shameful thing is being covered up, Angela's always standing there with a shovel? Ain't that the truth.

As stereotypical that the xerox butt copying guy was... I'm pretty sure I'd shame my family if I did something like that and I'm like... sansei. LOL. I still thought it was entertaining.
