Heroes S01E20: String Theory

I can't say enough how pleased I am with how the Heroes series is shaping up. Two more episodes to go and things look to be headed for a big finish, with no obvious loose threads in sight. This is how entertainment is supposed to be.

"String Theory" follows Hiro and Ando as they travel five years into a much darker future. It's a future where they failed to stop the catastrophe in New York. They meet future versions of old friends and enemies and friends-turned-enemies.

Now I hope that's not saying too much. I ruined part of my own experience by reading some spoilers before I actually got to watch the show. Serves me right for being impatient. Nevertheless, even knowing how the surprise turns out, I was caught in the storytelling.

What differentiates Heroes from other shows I'm following is how neatly things are coming together. It's pretty hard to do that with an ensemble cast, much less with an unfolding storyline arc that's an entire season long. The "Heroes" crew really outdid themselves.

I have no doubt I'll be watching the entire series from the very beginning once this season ends, just to see how well the entire plot comes together.

  3. Hi, Rina: he he, the people on my blogroll more often than not watch the same shows I do. I wonder why that is.

    Hi, Claire: cool! send me the link when you're ready. And thanks for the heads up on the Jerry McGuire post. Sums up how I feel right now.

  4. I can't believe how this show keeps getting better and better! One of the few shows the wife and I watch together, this one had as on edge.

    And when Peter and Peter's "brother" faced off in the end, wow, I'd have wanted to see that showdown but hopefully that future will never happen ( hopefully... )

    I definitely steer clear away from spoilers, nothing like a good twist in the ending to leave one gasping...

    Can't wait for next week. ;)

  5. Manong Chaz is too much of a geek sometimes, and he knows it! lol. But I can't blame him. There's nothing like a good HDTV series on a Monday night.

  6. Hi, Chaz: yeah, I was hoping they'd show it. I want to know who wins. But considering that...oh, wait, too many spoilers already. Must...keep...lip....
