I've stumbled upon the perfect solution for my Monday night conflicts. No longer need I choose between watching Monday Night Football and Heroes. I watch Monday Night Countdown on ESPN then the first little bit of the football game. Then, at 7:00, I turn on Heroes for an hour and by the time Heroes is over, it's the second half of the game, which is the most exciting part anyway. And I am no longer dependent on my internet connection for TV.
Before I get to the Heroes Rehash (Spoiler Warning #2), here are my thoughts on the the football game - Broncos vs. Steelers:
There was a lot of talk about "The Broncos lost last week, they have to avoid another loss." You know, when you're just "trying not to lose," you invariably lose. You have to play to win. Cliche, I know. But it's true (thus holding to the rule that a cliche is a cliche because it is true. Duh).
There are a lot of Terrible Towels in Denver. Ha ha-ha ha ha-ha ha (*insert that annoying laugh from that black-haired kid on Dexter's Laboratory. I forget his name). I don't like the Broncos. I don't care if they're the NFL team I live the closest too. Provo is closer to my hometown that anywhere, doesn't change anything there. I'm happy the Steelers won. And Ben Roethlisberger is extremely attractive. With all the good looking guys in football, I wonder why more girls don't watch football.
Speaking of quarterbacks - where did Denver find Kyle "Porn 'stache" Orton?
Troy Polamalu - Just put him in on offense too. He'll get you a touchdown.
I seriously thought they were going to interview Jimmy the Greek in the pregame. I got all excited. Then I remembered he was dead. Sometimes, I just fail at history. -_-'
Okay - on to Heroes:
***Spoilers Begin Here***Blogger Doesn't Let Me Cut***Neither Does Facebook***Punks***
I find Gretchen a little fickle. First she's all gung-ho about Claire's powers, then she bails at the first sign of trouble. I know Claire is trying to find friends and have a normal life, but even in normal life, those who do not stand by you in tough times are not your friends. Good message for everyone.
On the bright side, those sharks are safely penned away. For now.
Ultimately, if the medical career doesn't work out for Emma, she's has a brilliant future in music. Don't think she'll need it ^_^
Question: So... Peter can't see sounds anymore? I didn't think the powers he absorbed had an expiration date or anything. I always thought he got to keep them (that's what I thought in season 1, anyway). I'm still a little confused on how his power works.
Sylar called her "Mama Petrelli." Ha ha ha ha!! That made me giggle.
As did Matt's attempt at being the obstacle in Sylar's way. But, of course, we're talking about Matt "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished" Parkman. Things must go the way of the penguin, it's just the way his life is. As evidenced by next week's teaser where Peter heals him and Sylar/Nathan is standing there ready to cut open his head. And my Matty fangirl alarm goes off (Nooooo!!! Not my Matty!!)
Peter Petrelli is awesome. But I can't help but think that his healing ability is going to do more harm than good.
I also have a hunch that there is more to the story of Becky's dad and Daddy Bennet. Butterfly Man just likes to muddy the waters for Claire-bear (yes, I know his name is Samuel, but he's Butterfly Man. Hiro said so). And you certainly can't trust the sorority girl, either. Even when Noah was perceived as "The Bad Guy" - he's still doing what's in the best interest of the protagonists. Unlike Mama Petrelli, who just likes to screw with people. For this reason, I hope Sylar gets to her before Noah or Matt or Peter get the concrete shoes on him.
So, next week, we'll pick up where Hiro left off because that's the rotation. One week, we get Claire. The next is Hiro. Peter is every week because Milo Ventimiglia is too wonderful to be skipped and Matt gets put in as they can. Yes, I am that perceptive.
Well, I'm off to watch "V." It's finally on Hulu. Took them long enough.
