This week, Miranda, James, Laura, and Jeff ask Hiro to send us back to November 23, 2009 so we can discuss NBC’s Heroes – Season 4, Chapter 10, Thanksgiving.

We’re looking for some voicemail feedback on how you feel about Heroes Reborn. We haven’t heard from some of you in a while and we’re curious as to how you are liking, or not liking, the show.

Call us: 346-202-HERO (4376).

This was Jeff’s choice for our Heroes Rewind discussion.  His reason? Laura said pick a weird one and this one certainly qualifies!  RayParkDarthMaul Plus, he loves Darth Maul!

Less than 3 minutes in and we have our first tangent…must be some kind of a record.  All the talk about pie reminded Jeff about Pushing Daisies starring Lee Pace.  LeePaceGOG

This episode had us all fairly confused. It was definitely NOT a standalone episode.

This week we dug out the actual recap segment from our Original Heroescast Podcast as recorded by Kim.

Samuel discovers his true potential in terms of his ability.  Because we don’t remember, we hypothesize that he must have sent Hiro back in time to retrieve the film, since we thought Joseph had destroyed it.  We also discuss Hiro’s naiveté being one of the things we didn’t like in the original run.  Since this isn’t a standalone episode, we really never recalled what Samuel’s plan was and, in trying to explain it, probably made it more confusing 🙂

HRG goes shopping Fonzarelli style and “accidentally” runs into Lauren.  James is very pleased since he’s a big fan of Elisabeth Rohm.

We continue trying to recall or speculate who and what some of the characters in this episode were; namely Gretchen and the girl that tried to kill her (Becky).  Which takes another tangent into House of Lies on Showtime, since Lydia plays Don Cheadle’s ex-wife on that show. Which takes us down the path of Jean-Ralphio.  Which ties back into the Fonz and finally ends up with Ash vs. Evil Dead. WHAT?  That’s how confused we were with this episode.

Bennet Thanksgiving DinnerOnce we get back on track, we discuss the Dysfunctional Bennett family’s dinner.Screen Shot 2015-12-19 at 7.30.04 PM

And just like that, we’re off again talking about Carnivale, Prison Break, and Fremont, Ohio.

Sylar/Nathan bring some real story back to the episode which clears everything right up. (NOT)

Samuel finds a scapegoat for Joseph’s death in Edgar since Hiro won’t rat him out in order to save Charlie.

In summary: Don’t try to watch this episode on its own unless you completely remember all the bits and pieces of season 4.


Thanks for all the reviews. Stay tuned to find out if you are a winner of Heroes Swag.

This week, Miranda, James, Laura, and Jeff ask Hiro to send us back to December, 2008 so we can discuss NBC’s Heroes – Season 3, Chapter 12, Our Father.

We’re looking for some voicemail feedback on how you feel about Heroes Reborn. We haven’t heard from some of you in a while and we’re curious as to how you are liking, or not liking, the show.

Call us: 346-202-HERO (4376).

This was Laura’s choice for our Heroes Rewind discussion.  Her reason? Bloody Sylar Elevator

Sylar covered in blood, of course.  James now understands why Laura has been such a huge Sylar fan 🙂

Mini Hiro makes Miranda happy, YounganOldHiro and the scene when adult Hiro sees his mom before she dies was a very emotionally touching moment for us.  HiroandMom

 

 

James was really drawn into the show by watching this episode. We all seem to feel that the writing from the original series, and this particular episode especially, is why we liked the series so much, and may be why we’re a bit disappointed in the new series.

James’ thoughts on his first Peter exposure; He was a bit underwhelmed and wasn’t what he expected based on how Laura had discussed him in the past.  That was probably due to Peter not having “power” at this juncture in the storyline.  But as an isolated episode, he experienced a full gamut of emotions.

The Haitian seems to have more of a major part than what we remembered.

And we really like the fact that the original series did a lot of callback to character names, and story situations.  This is something else we feel is lacking in Heroes Reborn.

We look a bit ahead because we’re trying to remember what the entire story is with, Nikki, Jessica, and Tracy (and Barbara?).  Niki_Jessica
