This week, Miranda, James, Laura, and Jeff discuss NBC’s Heroes Reborn – Chapter 9 – Sundae, Bloody Sundae.

 

 

 

We welcome Laura back, safe and almost sound, from her trip to Europe. She left Paris just 24 hours before the tragedy occurred.  Our thoughts go out to all those affected.

Joanne’s day at Moe’s didn’t include a Duff’s Ice Cream Sundae, but maybe it should have because she is obviously CRAY CRAY.

Matt Parkman, the Mayor of Happytown USA, err… the director of Sunstone Manor, has become quite a JERK. He let’s you pick your poison, in Carlos’ case, “mind bullets”, but Miranda’s not giving up hope on her hero cop.

Katana Girl is alive, but it’s 7957 years in the future. And in case you’re wondering as we were, 7+9+5+7 is the perfect number 28 (we get quick math lesson from James) and 7957 + 2015 = 9972 which is years 8000 years after the Irish Bloody Sunday massacre. What do all those numbers mean? Probably nothing, but if you have thoughts, send ’em in. Joe in Tennessee did via the HERO Hotline. He reminds us of the importance of 11:53 in the last episode and how Quentin ended up in the right place at the right time.  Did Hiro live through the sword fight against all those Harris guns in order to be “Parkmaned” for information?

Ugly Red Wig Girl: Taylor’s “disguise” just doesn’t make the grade.

Alias red vs. Heroes Reborn Red: Whatd’ya think?

Rene’, the Haitian, is no longer dead, he’s leading the Hero Truther group.

Miranda’s Alphas reference:

And this is for James:

Erica conveniently keeps a rifle in the pantry, but apparently not one good butcher knife anywhere. So perhaps it’s best to be butchering the venison with a herring.  Especially because there’s enough venison for the “Very Harris Thanksgiving” holiday special.

 

What’s the connection between Carlos, Matt, and Farrah?

Who cares when you can see Carlos’ abs?

Carlos' Petable Abs

A hiatus is coming…will this be good or bad for their numbers?

Brief tangent 🙂 Zachary Quinto in Hitman: Agent 47

Episode 8 – June 13th – Part Two

Play

logo2.3

This week, Miranda, Jeff, James and special guest host Joe discuss Heroes Reborn – Episode 8 – June 13th, Part Two

 

Welcome Back Joe – a founding cast member! (See the awesome timeline he made for Jeff below)

HRG stepping on butterflies, or just one really big butterfly?? Shoot first, apologize (sort of) later.

Joe and James question the believabilitly of the time travel in the show…

James’ time travel movie recommendation – Looper

Notice the clock on the wall with the two HRGs!

Plot devices vs Storytelling – Wonder Twins Activate

Quentin is a bad guy now… results of the butterfly effect!

Camera focus during news conference – on the background on purpose?

Jim Carrey on In Living Color

Quentin’s motive – Does he have a chance for redemption or is he really a bad guy?

Katana Girl’s backstory is complete! Her “father” is her creator.

Who’s hotter – Kelly Lebrock as Lisa or Kiki Sukezane as Miko/Katana Girl

kelly-lebrockMiko_1

Time travel “rules” – which version of time travel do you buy?

That violence escalated quickly with Joanne and Luke. Mick the Ice Guy, we barely knew ya!

Message of the day: Do not go to thank strangers in a hotel room with a closed door!

Voicemail Break

Gerry – Likes the episode where the group of characters is working toward the same goal.

Craig –  MMOs necessitates the graphics be handled by a huge group of people… that’s why it can’t be perfect, so this fits in the weird cross section.

Ren’s cat mask could be a buff or be protection earned in a quest, or possibly an icon for his fans to recognize him.

Talks about the birth of Heroes Reborn as originally for streaming on Xbox and asks if perhaps that is why some fans are struggling with the plot and timing of the episode. Thinks that the backstory provides an explanation for why it would be better for binge watching vs week to week.

And… we’re back!

The evil of cliffhangers – and how it possibly changed the timing of how they wanted to progress the story – plus the combo of trying to hearken back to the original series, season 1, both together made it more difficult to watch week to week

Carlos, El Vengador’s, backstory with Farrah – planned plot device vs filler – Redemption so that he is a real hero with or without abilities

Matt Parkman is back! But he wasn’t there for long – Joe also thinks he’s using his ability all wrong. Plus, he’s now selling his ability to the highest bidder.

Slight tangent – Originally Joe thought HRG’s glasses were part of his ability

Nursing notes from Joe – Priority is patients not stupid question & if you want to go to the front of the ER line, tell them you can’t breathe!

Exactly how heavy is Casper’s suitcase full of pennies? Pennies per pound Approximately 181 per pound… how many do you think he had!

Memaw Petrelli and the wonder twins had a vision that gives us the zero hour for our major event! What information is Memaw keeping from Malina?

Jupiter Ascending bee reference – For Laura 🙂

9th Wonders comic left to Tommy/Nathan from Hiro before he goes to a Gun fight with a sword, or two swords!


 

Joe’s Handy Dandy (keep Jeff straight) Timeline!

1999

  • Hiro and Angela realize that the infant Nathan/Tommy has stolen Hiro’s powers.
    • They decide to split up and raise each of Claire’s children separately.

2014

    • At the hospital, 2015 HRG tries to kill Erica, but is stopped by 2014 HRG.
      • 2015 HRG shoots Erica in the leg, and gets back to stepping on butterflies.
        • Quentin saves her from bleeding out & she allows him to see Phoebe.
    • Harris & Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) interrogate the 2014 HRG.
      • Caspar wipes 2014 HRG’s memory before Matt can find out where Claire’s children are – or that there are two.
      • Matt has a heart and lets them escape.
      • Afterwards, HRG is back at the wreckage, and we see where he met his 2015 wife.
  • Luke & Joanne character building.
  • Backstory on Carlos & Farrah.
  • 2014 Angela tells 2015 HRG her premonitions of the 2015 H.E.L.E.
    • “Twins saving the world under a clocktower in Odessa, the clock at 11:53” (in 2015).
  • Signs: Animal migration disrupted / polls shift / Northern Lights appearing farther south
  • Caspar, 2015 HRG, and Molly formulate a plan to protect the children for one more year.
  • Nathan/Tommy teleports Molly to India, then sends HRG back to 2015.
  • Harris and his clones track down Nathan/Tommy, and he escapes with his mother and Caspar.
    • Hiro gives Nathan/Tommy his first comic book (manga) – the same comic from season 1.
    • Hiro brings a sword to a gunfight.

2015

  • Caspar wipes Nathan/Tommy’s memory to stop him from going back for Hiro, who stays in 2014 to fight Harris.
  • HRG sees that Quentin is still alive, and he over-shares, not knowing that Quentin is now secretly working for Erica.

With Hiro involved anything is now possible

The flying man return-ith!

CGI nose tubes?

Voicemail break from Encaf – Mark

Episode 6 – Game Over

Play

logo2.3

This week, Miranda, Jeff, Laura and James discuss Heroes Reborn – Episode 6 – Game Over

Luke becomes a boat owner…not a sailor…just an owner!

Another article on iO9 sent in by Rick asking if the writers are lazy. (Article has course language)

Awkward moment? Boy meets girl, boy buys candy for girl, boy attempts suicide while girl watches.

Facebook Q&A with Jo’s actress (Judi Shekoni) – Laura asks her if we get to understand more of Jo’s character progression, as to why she’s gone so far into serial killer territory?

Tommy’s just an angst-ridden teenager looking to take out his frustrations on the people of France, especially bicyclists and cops.

BREAK for Some Voicemail Feedback from Joe, Gerry, and Vanessa

The old episodes of The 9th will be soon available soon by clicking on The 9th Tab at the top of this page.  You and Hiro can transport yourself back in time, but please don’t step on any butterflies.

Katana Girl pwns Boss level in the game just like Legend of Zelda Wand of Gamelon.

Leeroy Jenkins: The original version (Coarse Language Warning)

Leeroy Jenkins reimagined into a short film:

HRG is back, and Quentin is gone!  (Sorry lil’ buddy)

Phoebe is the Dark Matter…What has Renautas done to make you so dark?

YATAA! Hiro is finally back and ready to fix the past, present, & future (and his hair)!

Is the Game Over for Katana Girl?

Episode 5 – Into the Lion’s Den

Play

logo2.3

Miranda, Jeff, Laura and James the newb are back to discuss Heroes Reborn – Episode 5 – Into the Lion’s Den

First thoughts – We like it, why is everyone complaining about this ep?

Link from Rick – Is Heroes Reborn Falling into the same exact Trap that Heroes did?

Is Farah the worst protector ever?

Malina is now all alone… So what is in the Bloody Envelope and Where/Who is the Baby they are looking for?

The Shadow… Seems like Laura was right! Power neutralizer… bam! (She’s so smart!)

Luke is looking for atonement by… Burning down the house! Also anyone else notice how covered up his kid was in all the photos? Why?

James is reminded of this movie, “Knowing,” by the solar flare disaster that was revealed as the main plot point at the end of the episode….

FYI – Miranda is always wrong… aka the spoiler of the return of former cast members!

 

—BREAK—

VM from Robert Carpenter

-> Started watching because of the Signal

-> Was surprised by Heroes because it wasn’t a typical superhero show (no capes, darker)

-> Really liked third season even though it got a bit darker and complex

2nd VM from Robert Carpenter

-> Continued! From near Tacoma, WA.

-> Sylar is his favorite character

-> Really enjoying Heroes Reborn, had no expectations and wants to see whats next

VM from Carl in Hawaii

-> Tommy is the new Claire, possible Nathan’s son

-> Hiro is dead

 

And… We’re Back

Tommy, definitely not Tommy… but Nathan? (NOT NATE LOL) Peter’s son?

From Laura – “WHO IS THE PENNY GUY, HE INTRIGUES ME SO” She is also open to reading Penny Guy (Casper Abraham) fanfiction!

Miko gets “her” sword back so we guess their plan was successful?

Katana Girl – Holy crap, Jeff and Laura like her now. What’s happening?

Rules be damned, VM from Mark randomly in the middle of the show. Mark asks if Heroes Reborn is trying to pack too much into the first episodes and is losing the characters.

Also… Did HRG kill Claire?! Why else would he forget the past?

-> Lions 2008 Season / Chargers Superbowl appearance brought up

Zach and his wife, officially splitsville. #sorrynotsorry

Erica and her Ted talk, does this prove that Harris is a product of Renautas engineering and not evolution?

-> Captain Planet, he’s our hero, gonna take pollution down to zero!

Are the writers of Heroes really into old 80s and 90s cartoons?
