Harry Knowles Endorses HEROES Generally and Wants To Save The Cheerleader In Particular!!

Published at: Nov. 6, 2006, 12:01 p.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules!! Harry Knowles is keeping up with NBC’s “Heroes.” This may be the first time in more than a decade that Ain’t It Cool’s founder and “headgeek” has admitted to indulging a current weekly scripted series prior to its release to DVD. He’s paying for the “Heroes” episodes via iTunes, and I think he thinks this provides some sort of loophole. No matter. He’s embraced a show worthy of embrace. From Harry’s myspace blog:
The Moral Quandary Presented By HEROES Current mood: geeky Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities I don't watch much TV. I hate commercials and I hate being chained to a date and time by some corporate programming. However, I don't begrudge downloading from iTunes a single show a week that I'm addicted to. Currently, this show is HEROES. I never can remember that it is on... on Monday nights... at some time or another. It just slips my mind. Anyway - I've got a moral quandry about the show. Hayden Panettiere, born August 21, 1989, now 17 (legal in Texas, which is important, because her character is in Odessa, Texas) as the character, Claire Bennett. She's adorably cute, constantly in her cheerleader uniform. Ok - now never mind that she fulfills the underage cheerleading limber blond virginal demographic. That's pretty delicious. But they gave her the ability to regenerate and resuscitate from any and all injuries. This power has decided to manifest itself before she's lost her virginity. Which means - everytime she has sex, she's a virgin as her hymen will repair itself. Meaning that everytime she's fucked, its like she's being fucked for the very first time. OK - that's WAY WRONG. NOW - add to that - that she's at the age where cellular growth is complete. This is it. No wrinkles. No sagging breasts. If she has a kid and it pushes the hipbones out... they'll straighten back and she'll be fine. Of course - that's even if she could get pregnant. Would her eggs allow an invading sperm to fertilize? Is that possible? OR - is she simply doomed to enjoy threat free sex for life. Now - here's the scary part. She'll never know non-hymen blocked sex. Cuz even if it gets pushed through... on any withdrawal and cycle back in, the hymen will have grown back. SO... It's my theory that do to the constant discomfort of virginal sex with men, her character will prefer the kind attention of her fellow sex. MEANING - she'll be a hot, underage, cheerleading lesbian... for life. ALSO - she could have sex with ANYONE. Any disease - unprotected and be perfectly ok. The people behind this show are sick. Either that or they have singlehandedly created the most deviantly awesome fanboy sex object in the history of SUPERHERO FICTION. And she's from Texas. Claire... you rule!
9 p.m. Monday. NBC.

    Hey...maybe she'll be into the anal, huh harry? All she needs is lube...I mean..there's no breaking of anything back there! And...heres an issue...if she regenerates everything...then how does she keep from being hairy? Shouldn't her pits and legs be a thick blond thatch of hair...along with her hoo-haa?

    by BadMrWonka

    I just read this thoroughly, and I'm convinced Harry should NOT be allowed on myspace. at all. ever. even though Paul Ruebens has a sort of career after his indiscretion, but no one is asking him to do hand puppet performances...and so Harry can have a glorious career, but no one should ever ask him his opinion about cheerleaders and their sex lives, or allow him to be on a teenage dominated chat website...

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 1:55 a.m. CST

    Herc, could you refrain from doing that again?

    by MattCG

    Seriously, that made me slightly sick and was in no way amusing at all. This is why I don't read Harry's reviews. They're littered with references to his penis and how he would use that penis and frankly the idea of guy as big as he is pumping one out to an episode of "Heroes", his giant body heaving as he beat that penis against the underside of his gut, is just about enough to make anyone sick, especially considering people that are that big have problems with cysts taking form in their fatty tissues, so add bursting cysts filled with chunky, putrid puss to the vision of him beating his penis against the bottom of his gut and you've got a recipe for vomit on the keyboard. I don't need a perverted description of the downside of Claire's powers to help me enjoy the show. It's good enough as is. Although I'm now all kinds of worried Harry could be planning a black van trip to the set. My only solace is, she can probably run way faster than he can. From this moment on, Herc, I'd be happy if you could refrain from posting anything from Harry's MySpace journal in a thread about a show I like (Those would be "Studio 60", "Heroes" and "Battlestar Galactica") I'm plenty sure they will one day be featured in an episode of "To Catch A Predator". And Harry: STOP TALKING ABOUT YOUR FUCKING DICK! I don't want to fucking hear it, it makes me sick. Remember your review of "Blade 2"? Yeah, that kind of shit. Stop that. It's not funny and it reads like a psychopath's nighttime journal.

    What the Fuck?

    by eclipsedman

    Harry I now know that NO woman either real, transvestite or high paid hooker would have sex much less get near you, ever. You are the fat guy at work talking about sex like he has had it before and has no idea what the fuck he is talking about. Always trying to prove what a man he is but secretly lusting over the men he sees.

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 2:16 a.m. CST

    Like Harry actually wants to have sex with her...

    by kintar0

    when we all know he really wants to eat her. Not sexually, but for dinner. That's why he constantly describes attractive women as "delicious" or "scrumptious" or "yummy." Quint and Moriarty do it, too, so it might be a fat guy thing. Yeah, she regenerates, just like Thor's goats, and Harry could eat the meat from her carcass, over and over and over. Oooh, Harry wrote an inappropriate sexual diatribe, how shocking. The first thing Harry probably said when he saw the cheerleader on the medical examiner's table was "I want my babyback, babyback, babyback." And he's from Texas, where everybody's a slaughterhouse-closing away from cannibalism anyway.

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 2:19 a.m. CST

    You know, seriously.......

    by Doc_Strange

    Harry, try this, I lost 60 pounds in 2 months, and I ate a shit load of food: Eat 2-3 pounds of meat. Try eating chicken, I ate boneless, marinated chicken, or eat 85-90% lean hamburger. You can also eat certain cuts of steak like chuck or porter house, no rib eye or fillet mignon as it has too much fat in it. Eat as much meat as you need to in order to feel full. Now here's the hard part: Eat vegetables. Doesn't matter which ones, I ate broccoli or corn as I generally hate eating vegetables. It's always good to balance your meat intake with a vegetable. For desert, eat sugar free pudding. I would make a whole bowl of this stuff and eat it in one sitting. I figured out a way to make custard using packets of Splenda instead of sugar. Now people may be asking "Why the fuck is this guy giving diet advice on the TB's?" The answer is because you'll never be able to fuck 17 year old girls if you're an obese slob. The only outlet you'll have for your sexual frustration is shit like this pointless article. I may get banned for this but at least I can say I tried to help solve the problem as opposed to helping it along. Damn.

    by s0nicdeathmonkey

    yea, I saw that movie, which made 8,000 dollars opening weekend. i sat there in the theater, mildly amused and thinking, damn, this girl is smoking hot and will be huge if she can only find better roles. she was damn good in the movie too. so she has all three, looks, talent and youth. also, I didn't have to feel creepy, because she is roughly my age. same way I didn't have to feel creepy when I saw Leon the first time, since I too was 14.

    only if she wills it to be healed

    by FlowCytometer

    She seems only to heal when she concentrates on it, recall that the dripping hand post-garbage disposal didn't begin to heal until she wasn't distracted by mom. So if she wants it to heal, I guess only then will it heal. No idea if there is a time limit for scarring or your particular area of interest.

    Okay, look, Harry officially has issues

    by KCMOSHer

    It seems like everything, -every-frickin-thing- he writes comes back to sex, and graphic sex talk. It all started with the whole 'Blade II club scene is like oral sex' schtick, which was amusing. It's gotten worse, and this is just pathetic. Harry, man, please...find something, -anything- that will sate your ungodly lust so that you can occasionally write about something other than how media of one form or another somehow relates to where your penis goes. Everything is either 'fuck Bush' or 'hey, this reminds me of fucking bush'. STEP AWAY FROM THE BUSH, HARRY! And Herc. He's your boss, I can dig it. But please, for the love of all that is holy, you're an 'enabler' here. STOP ENCOURAGING HIM. It's not cute, it's not entertaining, it's sad and getting more than a little creepy.

    by Alientoast

    "Sure she's invincible, but do wrinkles and sagging boobs count as injuries?"...We're assuming her cells instantly regenerate. Aging is caused by cells dying. So if her cells never died or lost energy, in essence she would never age.

    by LlGHTST0RMER

    . . .something about the cheerleader character, I was thinking to myself, "Please, God, PLEASE let there be something Harry says that makes me feel disgusted and uncomfortable, and maybe, just maybe, let him say something that will unfortunately stay with me everytime I watch Heroes in the future. Just something to get stuck in my craw that'll re-ignite the image of Harry's manatee-like body accosting this attractive young lady everytime she appears on the show." Woo! That was a close one! I was so afraid I'd actually read something Harry writes and not feel like vomiting for once! Thanks, big guy. And thanks also for re-establishing the public's image of movie and comics geeks as pathetic, basement-dwelling, perpetual virgins who start punching the munchkin at the mere sight of a high-school-aged girl... when they're not updating their MySpace page.

    People, get a grip.

    by FluffyUnbound

    It's not like every teen comedy since 1975 hasn't in some way presented a high school girl or a cheerleader as a sex object. Was everyone on the set during the shooting of the scene in Fast Times At Ridgemont High where Phoebe Cates gets out of the pool a pervert who belongs on the sex offender registry? Frankly, I imagine that the reason the producers of the show keep Hayden in the cheerleading outfit every day at school isn't for easier character identification, it's to make her a sex object for male viewers. Guys like cheerleaders. Complain all you want.

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 7:47 a.m. CST

    One of the most disturbing observations I've ever read

    by zacdilone

    Not the stuff about the cheerleader, but this: "I hate being chained to a date and time by some corporate programming." As if the network TV schedule is some kind of corporate conspiracy to control our weekly schedule. I have an idea, then...lets have the networks just put their shows on at random times and days every week. The sponsors and the viewers would no doubt love that! Harry's comment reflects the "everything must conform to my personal schedule and desires" attitude that pervades American culture today. I would rather know that every Monday night at 9pm I'm getting together with my friends to watch a really cool show together.

    PAY ATTENTION!

    by tile_mcgillus

    Harry, if you would have been apying attention you would know that entire blog entry is off base. In the first episode when she jumps 50 feet and lives she is walking back with the boy chilling, boy looks down and sees that her rib is still out of her body. She pushes it back in and heals it. Some one else mentioned the hand/disposal thing earlier. So it seems she chooses to heal it or has an ennate sense to heal life threatening wounds ASAP and can choose to heal non-life threatening wounds. So this whole weird article is probably null and void.......oh and awkward.

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 7:56 a.m. CST

    Why this is disturbing

    by chrth

    1) Why does Harry even have a MySpace page? He's not a celebrity, and he's not a 14-year old girl (that's "Herc")<p> 2) Even Harry supposedly engaged? If Mail-Order Yoko could read English, I don't think she'd be happy with these observations of his.<p> 3) Something like this was funny in high school, maybe underage drinking in college time, but Harry's almost 35 years old. He's crossed the threshold from haha to creepy age-wise.

I will say that you idea is flawed, first off cellular growth doesn't stop at the age of 17, secondly your idea is also in that cellular growth is actually cellular division, in which case if i were to follow your idea correctly her cells wouldn't be able to divide as they would just reform back to one cell!! Anyways, not to go off on one but without cell death cancers would form very very quickly, yada yada!! Anyways, i love heroes and hayden is very good looking!

    Few points

    by Wildthrust

    Most girls who participate in activities which require extensive flexabilities ( like cheerleading, hurdles, acrobatics, etc) tend to tear the hyman early on. So given her age, and her obvious long participation in cheerleading its doubtful her hyman was intact when she got her powers. Even if it was, consider that when she jumped off that platform thing at the beginning, she later found her rips sticking out. The body didn't "pull" them back in, it couldn't, she has to push them back it and move them around till they were back in place. Thus just because her hymen may get torn she might have to actualy position the tissue back in order for it to heal shut. Even if the situation with her hyman is as stated, she likely wouldn't feel much pain each time it's broken (major reason the "first time" is always bad for a woman). I mean she has had to push her ribs back in, gotten her fingers broken and twisted by the disposal, and purned her hands. While she responded with some pain, it was no where what you would expect for the trama. Thus she probably has a beyond normal pain threshold. As for procreation, if when she was on that slab you had put your keys in her, after she healed herself the keys would have still been in her. Most likely the same would happen with a sperm. Plus consider that not all genetic attributes are passed on to progeny, so while her body might heal itself, that doesn't mean her eggs will. Also take into consideration that most self-healing like she does is usually associated with "cellular telekenises". The ability to manipulate objects with the mind on a sub-cellular level. Kinda like having energy based nanites running around you.

    That was very disturbing

    by DigitalDong

    I mean seriously, as if buying the show from iTunes wasn't dumb enough, the rest of that was making me think that sex predator laws aren't tough enuff. I hardly doubt he's a fan of the show, it sounds more like he's a Hayden Panettiere stalker in training. I love this quote " Hayden Panettiere, born August 21, 1989, now 17 (legal in Texas, which is important, because her character is in Odessa, Texas)" Why is that IMPORTANT? They got some crazy law in texas where 17 year-olds must have sex with obese men? I hardly see the importance in that. Texas is more fucked up then I thought.

    I don't know where you got the idea that Claire would be immune to disease, Harry. Sure, it's a reasonable extrapolation given what little we've seen of her ability. Here's another one: maybe her ability makes *her* immune to bacteria and viruses, but doesn't prevent her from being a carrier? In other words, be careful where you stick your thingie.

    The "Sean Bean is Sylar" rumor

    by Jimmy Jazz

    has been debunked. By Bean himself, no less. Also, why did you people read Harry's diatribe if you knew exactly what he was going to say? I mean, it's not like the man's not predictable. "Harry talking about The Cheerleader in Heroes". What the hell ELSE would you think it was going to be about? And I find the indignant stance a bit hypocritical since half of you are thinking the exact same thing when you see her in her seemingly endless supply of cheerleader uniforms. I'll cop to a stray impure thought about Hayden P. myself when watching the show, albeit not as......vivid in the imagery as Harry. This show kicks ass. Definitely the best new show this year (although that's not saying much) and up there with BSG and V. Mars in my book. If you don't like it, you suck and have no taste. Period.

    by thecomedian

    That was still kinda creepy, Harry. I mean she's totally hot and I myself have made jokes about masturbating to "Ice Princess" and stuff since this show has been on but what you wrote just felt icky. Probably because we all have the mental image of you thinking about this stuff and going into all those details. No offense, bro. But you just ruined the Hayden fantasy for a whole lot of people. Which is fine. The show needs less teen porn and more Ali Larter from behind shots anyhow.

    pervs and age limits

    by kuguy3000

    Kind of frightning...that Harry doesn't know or appreciate what real satire is. <br> <BR> He mentions (to the point) the age of the character, her location, and the local law stating how she's legal...no offense Harry, but those are three traits of sex offenders. They know who, what, where, and why. They're classic points of interest.<br> <Br> Second, we just read through a pointless and irrelevant article about an underage girl (i.e. non-adult) and her sexual history. Why Harry? Because you can? Because your website allows you display this sordid document, with little regard to decency or morals? Oh wait...have the Hollywood elite made a film that defends morals and decency? I'm sure when they do, you'll be a supporter...<br> <br> Lastly, this is quite sick. I've had family members molested and assaulted, and the guy(s) that did that to them exhibited all the traits you just did Harry. I'm not saying your a pedophile or secretly want sex with minors... but don't you DARE hide behind local law justifying this type of behavior. First you regale us with tales of bringing your nephew to rated R movies (which WILL affect him when he grows up in one way or another) and you keep telling us about your sexual desires. <br> <br> Harry, with all due respect... keep this shit up and you'll be reported. You've documented enough evidence to justify that, and do what you will...kick me off or whatnot, it won't stop it from happening. Your readers deserve better, and so do you. <br> <br> Anyone disagree?

But there is something so so so so so much more disturbing about a 300 pound, 34-year-old man pondering online in front of thousands what it would be like to repeatedly break the hymen of someone who is a real, currently alive, 17-year-old (or rather almost the exact age of my little sister) girl named Hayden Panettiere. It's just plain sick. Imagine if you just stumbled across the exact same article from a blog by some shady-seeming no-name.

    disgusted

    by leesheri

    As a woman, I am offended. That was uncalled for, disgusting, and I am disappointed. Now, I know why so few women frequent this website. It is not “chick friendly” and from what I see, quite a few men are disgusted too. The size of a man means nothing, but if that man has things like this to say in a public forum… I would be very surprised if he could find a woman to tolerate him… and if he did, I would be suspicious of her motives. Of course, with things like that to say, he probably is not looking for a quality relationship with a quality woman.

    I don't appologize for my previous post. I reread it three times before posting, because I wanted it to be in good taste and realize that in this realm (online posting) people usually disregard anything that remotely resembles morality as a throw-a-way. I do this often, too...<br> <BR> But Harry, you crossed the line. You've become so out-of-touch with what's considered decent and consciously wrong. No, I'm not a hyper-conservative or moral-majority dimwit... this is just COMMON SENSE.<br> <br> Sure, talking about underage sex is funny...til it happens to someone you care about. This isn't something that will become "MORE ACCEPTABLE" as time moves on...and if it does, count me dead. This is graphic sex talk about UNDERAGE CHILDREN. Yes, she's 17...yes, she's hot...but she's still an underage MINOR. Whether she's legal or not isn't the problem...<br> <BR> THE PROBLEM is that several times, Harry's shown signs of depravity. He constantly talks about subjecting his underage nephew to graphic images. Harry, it doesn't MATTER if he "likes them" or his parents "approve". I'm sure your nehphew would love knocking back some brewskies, and I know several bad parents that don't object to questionable material...it DOESN'T matter.<br> <BR> You obviously know little to nothing about child trauma. Read up on it, or you'll do more damage. I'm not calling you a bad guy Harry, but your behavior is unacceptable and has crossed the line. <br> <BR> Harry, eventually you will be reported. It won't matter if you've "done" anything wrong by your line of thinking...but you will be reported and you can kiss your career goodbye. Hollywood can stomache druggies, alcholics, or even racists...but the one thing they can't stomache is sexual predators. Please, appologize for this on your MAIN PAGE before it's too late. <br> <BR> Appologize now Harry, don't be like John Kerry and hide it. Appologize before you bring down Aintitcoolnews with you. Yes, it will happen. Yes, I'm being serious. Please.

Wouldn't the hair keep turning back to the original color? Hmm. And I guess hair and nails don't count. But then again, should she have hair or nails? I am ignorant... dunno how the science works, but I would think either one of the three would be true: she couldnt have hair or nails, or she couldn't cut them... or they stopped remain the length they were when she first got her powers. I dunno. I'm stupid that way. And should she be able to shave her legs?

Whether Harry's mental noodlings are disgusting to you or not, you're just using his article as an excuse to launch into half-baked diatribes designed for one purpose and one purpose alone -- to make yourselves seem morally and sexually superior to other talkbackers, which is sad in of itself. If you claimed to have no attraction whatsoever to teenage girls, legal or not, you'd have a much better argument -- although based solely on taste. If, on the other hand, you fully expect your fellow man or woman to believe that you have absolutely NO lascivious thoughts about a smoking hot girl one day before her 18th birthday and then suddenly, magically feeling a natural sexual attraction to her the day she turns 18, then you're either a moron, gay, asexual or an outright liar. In the UK, the legal age is 16 and 16 is also the age when it's legal for chicks to pose nude for magazines. Does this make the majority of British men who ogle a 16-year-old Page 3 girl pedophiles? And if so, by what moral measuring stick? American law or by your own personal morals? If you think Harry's article was revolting, fine. Just don't use it as an excuse to jump onto your high horse and scream about sex crimes in the offing and the heinousness of looking at a girl less than a year shy of her 18th birthday in an impious manner -- because you all sound like tools.

    free speech

    by bobsullivan

    Great, some idiot (Anchorite) plays the "free speech" card. I'm so tired of this crap. Last I checked the first amendment says that "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech". Not "no one is allowed to call those who exercise free speech a sick perv" (Harry) or "The album sales of those who exercise free speech shall be maintained" (Dixie Chicks). I know this will shock a lot of you out there, but people who boycott the products of those whose political speech they don't agree with are (gasp!) exercising their own free speech. Here's mine: If you're 30+ and fantasize about 17 year-olds then you are one sick dude regardless of whether or not you are justified by law. The half your age + 7 rule will keep you away from creepiness (though posting sexual fantasies about anyone online still makes you a perv).

    Hey, Mr. Nice Gaius...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...you should try watching this show because presently it's not terrible and it looks and feels like the kind of show that could legitimately grow up into something pretty good. Not there yet, but it has had its flashes. Now observing your likes and dislikes as fellow BSG defenders on the BSG talkbacks I am far from certain that you'll like it, and I wouldn't even take any big bets on my liking it by the end of the season, but it has, by drips and drabs, become one of the three shows (along with The Wire and BSG) I actually look forward to seeing each week. And although (no offense to the actress, as she is clearly to many folks' tastes) the cheerleader strikes me as half dwarven and with a giant old Elizabeth McGovern pumpkin head, the show does feature Ali Larter, one of the hottest women on the planet. As for the Harry nonsense Herc put here, I think you've got to put it in the context with the naughty nerd discussions you had with some nerd friend at thirteen. Harry's still there. Nothing more or less meaningful than that.

    by MattCG

    I have nothing against banging a hot as fuck 17 year-old cheerleader, I've often thought there isn't enough of that kind of thing going on and would like to see more of it, specifically in my life. What really bothers me is when a morbidly obese man starts talking about his sex life, forcing me to form a mental image in my head. THAT'S ALL. For the record, I'm glad Harry has a good imagination, that's where things like this should stay, IN YOUR HEAD! So, in the future, KEEP THEM IN THERE and feel free not to share. If you were a friend of mine, I would've poured something really hot in your lap and slapped you in the face. I come here to read about movies, not have my goddamn morning bagel ruined by the thought of fat sex of any kind.

    Given the list of shows you like I feel a little more confident suggesting Heroes to you now...our tastes, for better or worse, seem to coincide on a lot more than BSG. Politics, even, though most of my Countdown comes by way of the MSNBC website. And I'm not sure I'm not watching Lost now just on reflex. By the way, when I mentioned Ali Larter in the post above I almsot said "hot enough to be a Cylon". Is that just too sadly pathetic or a new gold standard for celebrities? Because I'm not sure but I think it might be both.

    Actually - I've never really been exposed to it. Oh sure - I've seen images of the Asian School Girl with the tentacle invaded vagina, but oddly - all this made me think was... "I wonder if she likes that." As most girls I've been with don't like cold things in their vaginas. Yoko would not appreciate a Cold Salty Tentacle invading her... and frankly - I wouldn't like it either. And I think people that get turned on by Tentacle Porn just are out of touch with the basic beauty of normal fetishistic ponderings.

As for Countdown, I think Keith Olbermann has been doing the most important journalistic commentary this country has seen/heard in a LONG time. I find his approach much more appropriate than say The Daily Show et al. *** Damn. Now you've got me imagining a naked Ali Larter with a glowing red spine. Thanks!

    by HEADGEEK

    The fact is - we're both laughing our asses off over this talkback. We both get the irony of it and are completely aware of our age differences, but the fact is we watch HEROES curled up together on my iBook. And after CLAIRE's near rape/death... and her subsequent conversation with her Dad that she has NO PROOF... the thought hit, yeah, even if the Quarterback had raped her, she'd have no proof because if the hymen had been intact before her powers manifested themselves... and the fact that her father apparently has been aware of her powers for far longer than she has.... Maybe even to the point of birth - via genetic tracking or some sort of plot device we haven't seen... WELL... it made me ponder what a terrible existence she would have. For SEX to be constantly about pain and discomfort. To never be able to physiologically adjust to what sex is. Then just the whole concept of could she get pregnant and everything else... well it's what we began to talk about. THAT's why I decided to share the conversation. It wasn't about me fucking CLAIRE - it was about Claire having a healthy sex life given her "superpower". And wouldn't that kinda suck? Personally - I've never fetishized Virgin sex. It sucks. There's discomfort for one partner or another. There's blood. ECK. And is generally not the best sex experience. No?

That said there are beautiful women of all ages. And pros and cons about older and younger women. I'm just happy I found the perfect lady for me.

    I try to stay as far from politics as humanly possible here, but yeah, I consider his bit on Habeas Corpus when everyone else was busy fellating McCain for "standing up to the president" a defining moment. Whatever he does from this point forward he'll always have respect from me for what he did right there in defense of American freedom and liberty. And I give him credit for the increasing attention it has gotten from the press since. And sorry, folks on the right, but that's a bad law, and it would be as bad a law under potus Clinton or Biden or Kerry as it is under Bush. And asking for that power not only shows a contempt for the basic American ideals on which this country was built but an abandonment of the core beliefs of what "conservative" meant before this administration. Okay, politics off. Damn, Gaius, I give you naked Ali Larter with a glowing red spine, and you repay me with making me think about this?

    Harry, come on, what in the hell possesed you to allow this thought enter your mind. Yes, we all know Hayden is hot, but let's come back to reality. She might be nice to you in some press conference, but dude she would never find you attractive or date you. Don't you do your homework. She hangs with Paris Hilton and that ilk. She's not like Kristen Bell or Aisha Tyler who would actually hang with you. I really think Hayden is one of these actresses who would be nice to fans at signings and seem generally sweet. Then later on go out drinking and tell her friends what a bunch of ugly geeks she had to be around that day. Sorry, but I bet that's the reality. If Hayden read this, I bet she'd be thinking ewww, keep this Harry Knowles guy away from me.

    I actually figured the branch in the head was a case of being unable to heal around a foreign object still remaining inside the body, sort of Richard Matheson's reason you had to stick something in the vampires in Last Man on Earth. As far as the death painting goes there's no certainty that it has anything to do with the head being injured. It could be an upper limit to the extent of trauma her body could survive or it could be something having to do with Sylar's (assuming that's who kills her) plethora of powers. It could even be that she was painted in the moments after her brain was taken (giving Sylar, theoretically, invulnerability and therefore the power to kill everyone in the world, if he wished, with no possible worries) and before it regenerated. That last could even give rise to a scenario where Sylar and the cheerleader were the only survivors on earth and because of the nature of her powers he could indulge his sadistic impulses forever. Which would certainly be something to save her from, even overlookins the ick of having her whole brain pulled out.

    Chrth

    by Red Ned Lynch

    My guess would be that the processes of breaking down and rebuilding in her own body are probably seen by her body as natural, nonthreatening processes, but an outside injury (or virus or bacteria, I would guess but don't know) would cause the healing reaction. Of course I'm just guessing this, it is nothing the show has explained. Otherwise you just run into too much "inside baseball" b.s., like whether food, once swallowed, would be digested. Seems simpler the other way.

    Re: hymens - I'm guessing this isn't HEROES canon.

    by DarthCorleone

    I don't watch the show. Isn't it possible, though, that her hymen broke before her powers manifested? Virginal sex is not always the time at which a woman's hymen breaks. Sometimes it happens before. Or did NBC confirm that her hymen is intact?

  • Nov. 6, 2006, 6:10 p.m. CST

    It's all very recent...

    by KaraIsACylon

    At least we get the impression that Claire only found out a few weeks ago. Much like everyone else. So it's possible that she hasn't fully manifested her powers yet. The only one who seems to have had her powers for some time is the Ali Larter character... and she is only now realising them too. (Or am I wrong in thinking her husband has been on the run for a while, long enough for her to borrow money from Lindermann, and to move several times?) We don't know if Claire can build muscle, because she hasn't tried yet. When she does? Then, we'll know.

    by MrD

    No, I don't really expect Heroes to explore this, at least on TV. However, it is an interesting topic to consider, just as an intellectual exercise, and who knows how many side projects this series will create (comics, books, etc). As for aging, I can accept aging because there you are often looking at damage not to tissues but to genes. We don't really know the extent of her healing ability, so she may be vulnerable to radiation, free radicals, etc.

    Not sure. I mean, technically she would have still been unconscious even after the branch was removed from her head. It was her healing that allowed her to become conscious again. And there really isn't a muscle issue that was raised by the show...just Chrth, wondering how her power worked.

    On Muscles

    by chrth

    Muscles are built by the tearing and healing of muscle fibers. The soreness one feels after a workout is the pain of torn muscle fibers. The reason muscles grow is because if you regularly tear the fibers, your body compensates by producing longer, stronger fibers* (secondary effect is to build stronger bones). If she heals immediately, she would never feel any soreness because the fibers would repair immediately. At the same time, though, the body would never find the need to compensate. If she can control her healing, she can hasten the muscle-building process by waiting before healing (so she could work out say daily rather than the 48 hours typically recommended). <p> *This might not be exactly what's happening; something similar though

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...I still like my notion that the body's natural breaking down and rebuilding are ignored by her power better...but an alternate interpretation of yours would bring up an intriguing possibility...what if each time she used her muscles they did grow back immediately, BUT with the strengthening seen in a normal person? The rapid muscle growth this could cause could enable her to push her body to greater and greater limits, and even though it would ultimately reach a stopping point because of the whole breaking of the supporting bones thing, even the breaks would only be a temporary inconvenience. She could end up super strong and virtually indestructable. But probably not.

Yes, Harry talks about sex too much. Yes, it is kinda creepy. Yes, he is kind of a sellout by saying every movie is good and we should go see it. But isn't this his site?

    FYI: Re: Sex Education

    by only1ofme

    Ok, guys, the hymen isn't a solid barrier. It has, in fact, a small hole that is capable of stretching. Thus, girls who are virgins can use tampons if they really want to, despite popular opinion. If done properly, it's possible for a virgin not to tear her hymen the first time she has sex - especially if she and her partner take it slowly. Thus, even if Claire DOES have a regenerating hymen, she can still have a sex life without unbearable pain and suffering. Or, as pointed out earlier, she could have already stretched it doing sports and activities. Remember, learning is half the battle! P.S. That being said, dude, what's up with guys being interested in women who are literally half their age? I'm in my early twenties and boys in highschool look like babies to me. The idea of even kissing one of those pimply immature babies is just ... ew. Ew.

    oh and about Harry's talkback

    by Molly_Millionz

    ... yah, as a female i found it a touch disturbing, but not absurdly offending. One thing though, many women lose their hymen at a young age doing things that are not related to sex. A cheerleader like Claire who probably did gymnastics or was just probably running around cartwheeling about on the lawn could very easily break her hymen doing those types of activities, or falling during a stunt at any given time in her life, like before she got her regenerative powers. I kinda feel like I'm sinking to a level where we've got this great character with cool powers who could probably do alot of good with these powers and instead we're talking about her V-card but I wanted to give a female perspective. She probly lost her hymen a long time ago, not like it really matters. Oh, and this also means to you people having sex with women who are virgins, don't freak out if you don't see blood. It's normal.

    by MrD

    Sad to say, you're analogy is off base here. The Foley thing caught the public imagination largely because it was same sex. But even if that were not a factor, the relationship between the Foley and the page was that of mentor-teacher. Foley (and other Congressmen) are expected to act as teachers and advisors to the pages, and a sexual advance was completely out of place. Not only was it unprofessional, but also a betrayal of the trust the parents placed in the congressman. It's no different than a college professor who has sex with a student. Harry, having no relationship with this fictional cheerleader or the actress who plays her, is fairly safe to fantasize about her and speak of those fantasies since she is of legal age. It may disturb some of us, but then it would just as likely disturb us if he were talking about sex with a little old woman too.

    Sherm

    by Immortal_Fish

    I'd love to agree with you, because I agree this episode was weak. But then, not so bad considering there have only been two weak episodes so far. I find this to be an improvement over last week. 1) Niki/Jessica is the weakest storyline and was front and center last week. BTW, I'm a diehard Hulk fan looking forward to how her character angle plays out. It's a shame there isn't enough meat on the bone with her characters, even compared with the FLying Petrelli Brothers. 2) Consequentially, Jessica's hulking out was disappointing and offered little satisfaction. 3) Last week also had the major plot hole of Mohinder disbelieving Peter even after seeing him "jump" from one place to another in the train. 4) Hell, the very presence of Mohinder and Wynona Eden is poison to the series. 5) No psychic Grunberg. What last week DID have going for it was Claire out of her cheerleader uniform, more humanizing of HRG, and, well, our weekly dose of Hiro. Now compare all that to this week. 1) No Mohinder or Wynona Eden. 2) More psychic Grunberg (and further character development). 3) Introduction of another supporting super to offer a glimpse that there are many more than we've been exposed to. 4) Hiro working in concert with P. Diddy Pryde. I'm a sucker for superheroes combining their powers. 5) Honest to goodness development of Micah, FINALLY. 6) More Claire in casual dress. 7) Nathan coming to terms with his abilities; e.g. "What will I do once I fly somewhere? I don't have a gun or know karate." Good stuff. And IMO, an improvement over last week. In fact, the only weakness is that there was no ball-grabber in the closing frame as we've come to expect. Well, no HRG guy either. I find him interesting because I know he's going to switch sides at the last minute in support of Claire.

    I'd agree with you if Harry didn't touch upon the actress's true name, true age, and the legality of the state where her character is based, which were transparent attempts to rationalize and justify his thoughts. As others have written here in the TB, some of the things he committed to type are known tendencies of actual rapists. Having personally worked with women in crisis, I know it when I see it. Now, I'm not claiming that Harry is a lunatic in waiting. What I am saying is that in this day and age, one can't flaunt crap like that freely without fear of consequence. Bear in mind that this is a society that doesn't tolerate parents who bat their abrasive child on the top of the head when they act up.

I figured Micah would be some sort of little kid version of Reed Richards but making him a technopath is just as cool. He's Forge only there's an actually supernatural element to his powers and not that "I just invent stuff. That's my mutant power." Bullshit they do with Forge. I thought the whole bit with Claire's brother was shitty writing. What a little douchebag. And the casting on this show overall is just getting more and more awesome.

    Re: chrth & muscles

    by smackfu

    Actually clair can build muscles, and very effectively (if this shit was real). What happens with muscle growth is this: every time an individual muscle strand is broken, you're now left with 2 smaller, opposing strands, and each one will growback the part that it's missing, doubling the number of strands. So claire's powers will eventually turn her into a Schwartzenegger-sized she-hulk over the years. Also, if she eats, there will be problems. If her cells are never dying, hence no need for raw materials to recreate them, and she keeps metabolizing food, she will probably grow to be an appropriate mate for Harry unless she stops eating, forever.

    Micah as Forge is premature

    by Immortal_Fish

    If you're eventually proven right, Comedian, I'll happily eat crow. But it's too soon to tell. He could be a telepath, control energy, control machinery, etc. Given what we've seen, it's too soon to tell.<P>BTW, my fanboy Supes casting is Caviezel as Supes (natch) and Kate Beckinsale as Lois. Courtney Cox is too old and Beckinsale has more balls than most guys in Hollowood. Then again, any great Supes movie would have had Lois as the hero, not her husband.

    by thecomedian

    "Jessica" is a fuckin' idiot. WTF are bullets going to do on a guy who can phase. They's so gonna have him phasing bullets next week. And Immortal Fish, like I said, Micah is a TRUE technopath. In X-Men they always said Forge was a technopath because he inherently could "read" any for of technology. But nostly it was always alot of "I build stuff bullshit". Probably the thrid worst power of crappy 1980's mutant powers right behind Doug Ramsey and Longshot. Micah is a true technopath in that there's actually something overtly superhuman about his powers. He can "fix stuff" or control technology just because. How can he telepathically fix a phone? Funny thing about Superman is that I wrote a casting couch for AICN Comics 4 years ago and I actually casted Christian Bale as Superman and Liam Neeson as Lex Luthor. Coincidences suck. But my Lois Lane was Amanda Peete. Rena Sofer would be a great TV Lois. I don't think she's necessarily got the chops to play Lois in a movie but I'm sure there's a parallel universe where she was Lois instead of Terri Hatcher.

    by Ironmuskrat

    When he correctly points out to his brother that their powers really are not all that super. "Am I suppose to fly around and pick cats out of trees?" I thought that Micah was going to end up being super-smart or inventive in someway, but knowing that his mother has two personalities was a little surprising. But the real surprise is the new symbol that showed up this episode, the double hash mark on the psy-cop and one other hero that can't remember at the moment. two different groups perhaps, created by two different organizations?

    Immortal_Fish, chrth, and whoever else...

    by Shermdawg

    lol, I liked last weeks episode. Frankly, I dig the Nikki character, and I'm not quite sure we've seen her fully "Hulk out" yet. Also, the pacing and Hiro doubting himself were wonderful. This week it was slower, and it's subpar writing and dialogue stuck out like a sore thumb. Of course I hope it's the thumb of Claire, and things quickly heal up.<br><br>Heroes should be compared to 24, not Lost. the show is at its best when it moves along briskly like it has been (not to mention, the expected closing shocker), but when it attempts some slower paced character development, like Lost (which has had some major problems as of late as well), it falls flat. I'm not claiming the writing was ever all that good outside of Hiro though. That scene where Mohinder gets the clues from the lizard in his dads apartment was beyond retarded.<br><br> And yes Immortal there are plot holes here and there, although, the Mohinder/Peter train position jump doesn't count. It was shot differently than the ending of the previous episode. Hopefully, they go back and fix that and the two versions of Claire waking up in the morgue for the dvds. I will agree with you though, Mohinder and the pixie girl are crap.<br><br> You wanna know what else is crap? The whole Sylar storyline.<br><br>Sure, having bodies found without their brains is nifty, but instead of building up the mystery of the character on the show, rather than the buzz he's garnering online, they just forget about it for a few weeks and then throw so much stuff at ya (like tonight), instead of gradually establishing whats going on, on a regular basis. Now watching this in a marathon might alleviate the problem, but it still won't help the total miscast of Clea DuVall whos in the running with Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder) as castmember with the least personality. I'm not buying her as a fed either.<br><br>Immortal_Fish, you claim this arc had character development? Really? The revelation that Mr.Sue Thomas F.B.I. was banging Alias boy's wife isn't much in the ways of character development, unless you really wanna see the eventual FORCED pairing of Parkman and his partner. Ugh.<br><br>I like Grunberg, I like the premise for his character, but so far its bad, and it's not his fault. The sad thing about it is, the "What Women Want" episode was the most interesting bit for him thus far.<br><br>And then you got the Nuke Boy who was dropped on us worse than the worst "meteor freak" on Smallville.<br><br>MINOR COMPLAINTS (and one major one)...<br>CLAIRE: Could they make it anymore obvious that they're ripping off Bobby's bro in X2 with Claires? The kid is a dead ringer for fucks sake! And why was the Texas scenes filmed in a orange haze? Also, wouldn't Claires blood remain? Yes, the reverse drip was a cool dramatic effect, but not allowing blood to flow, is lame. No big deal, but kinda lame.<br><br>HIRO: Not much with our favorite timetraveling samurai, but the carwreck rescue was cool. Oh wait NO IT WASN'T! How in the fuck do two cars collide on a stretch of highway in the desert? Were they playing chicken? Was there some sort of invisible barrier where one couldn't veer off the road? Were they both asleep? And if so, what are the chances of that happening? Once again, I'll overlook that. But.....<br><br>When Hiro froze time, and then wondered how he was gonna move D.L. and the chick, it cut right to him falling on top of them as the car/cars exploded, then we see them on the side of the road with the driver of the other car. Bad direction/editing on that one. And since it was Hiro's only scene, that is a major gripe.<br><br>MICAH: That phonecall at the end proved... a.he's a technical genius b.he's also a retard.<br><br>PETER: Why does Milo Ventimiglia sometimes speak out of the side of his mouth, then in the next scene, he speaks normally? Is it a halfassed attempt to give Pete a tic, or is it real life affliction of Milo's due to some illness or whatnot?<br><br>STEPHEN SPINELLA: aka Miles Papazian (24) aka Mitch Albom lookalike, is a prick! Or at least always ends up playing one on tv. Hopefully his Washington Post reporter role will be a recurring character, since there's no clearcut prick as of yet.

You usually notice it during closeups, which leads me to believe he's covering up some sort of dental problem.<br><br>As far as SMALLVILLE goes, when it's good, it's light years more satisfying than HEROES.<br><br>Of course, those good episodes are usually surrounded by a few shitty ones. But like I've said countless times before, Supes ain't Shakespeare, and I will cut it some slack.<br><br>And the honest truth about Heroes is, if Hiro didn't exist... you, I, and most of the people here wouldn't have stuck with it.

    DL and Hiro meeting on the road was NOT in the comic book. The car in the comic book was from when they picked out the car. When they started their journey a few episodes ago, the comic book ended and they were on their own. And re: "When Hiro froze time, and then wondered how he was gonna move D.L. and the chick, it cut right to him falling on top of them as the car/cars exploded..." Actually, it cut to Ando and Micah falling down, NOT Hiro and DL. I agree, it was a little confusing, but just a time cut so we wouldn't spend 15 minutes as the 98 pound superHiro dragged 300 pounds of DL and car chick across the road.

    I forgot to put it in my last post(too busy fucking around with assholes), but when did a light sprinkling of shitty become something that we, as self-professed geeks, are unable to handle? Half the movies, books, and television that made us the men(or whatever) we are, were, to varying degrees, kinda shitty. The reason sites like this were started, and have flourished, is very simply our abilty to embrace the things other people choose not to bother with. I'm not talking Star Wars, or Dr. Who, media that have great appeal to all sorts of people, but the things that fall through the cracks. Hell, this site was founded on covering Stargate. Yeah, some of the stuff on Heroes is out of Script Writers 101, and some of the acting seems like a school play, but it is fucking entertaing every week. I mean, this is the site that had a screening of fucking Monster Squad, for crying out loud. And I Love that fucker, with all of my socially awkward heart,but its still a dumb-ass movie, and that brings me back to my point. We have all chosen to love stupid things.

    A lot of character development.

    by tile_mcgillus

    Episode wasn't the best but definately moved the characters in the right direction. This episode was really about the limitations of the powers they have been given. Parkman's magic fantasy land with his wife ended with the major downside of being pyschic, knowing the truth of what people think about you. Nathan Petrelli sunk even further down into sleazyville and exposed why he doesn't appreciate his power. The Radioactive man giving his wife cancer was genius. Micah's reveal is probably the tip of the iceberg with him. He seems to be the only one that knows whats going on. Hiro wishing for superstrength. There were obviously some bad points (already mentioned several times in this TB) but the episode did explain how Sylar will blow up New York. He eats radioactive man's brain and then if he gets Claire's brain he would be able to just go around blowing up cities at his will.

So if say a two sixteen years olds are in an affair, the new law in Ireland stands that 16 year old young man could be jailed if they have a child and she didnt consent it. The old law was written in 1932 and was deemed to unconstitutional and that is why the padeos were released and recharged under the new law.

    Much easier to think of us all as world citizens than members of nations. But my big question is why all the immigration stuff is aimed at BROWN SKINNED PEOPLE? In NY state the largest illegal group was Italian. This was up until the late 90's and is probably surpassed by Chinese now. The US is working on an amnesty for illegal IRISH. That and making it easier for US citizens to mave and work in Ireland. So why does whitey hate the brown skinned peoples? Personally, since the fucking Native Americans we all are ILLEGALS! Back to Heroes, anyone notice radiation man said he didn't know what would happen if he were shot, maybe a NUCLEAR EXPLOSION. Could he be the source of the blast?

    http://www.counterpunch.com/atzmon11072006.html Watching Borat By GILAD ATZMON Without a doubt Borat is a funny man. A Kazakh misogynist and a racist buffoon, a primitive vulgar clown as well as a loud anti-Semite. A quick glance at Borat makes it evidentially clear that the man is totally fictional. He just can't be real. Hence, there is no offence in Borat to women, Jews, Kazakhs, Black people or anyone else. Yet, there are some things we better keep in mind while watching Borat and laughing our heads off. 1. Borat and his author, Sacha Baron Cohen, indeed manage to challenge British liberal discourse as well as the deeply deceptive image of multi-culturalism. Yet, I would suggest the application of the 'Khaled Abu Aziz Test'. Khaled Abu Aziz is an imaginary character. He is merely a test case that should be put into play each time the issue of multi-culturalism and racial equality is under scrutiny. The appropriate question to ask is whether Khaled Abu Aziz, a British Muslim comedian from Birmingham, would get away with performing Borat's crude anti Semitism or not. Would Khaled Abu Aziz get away with performing Ali G's retarded Black celebrity? I don't think so. Would Khaled Abu Aziz receive the support of British Television and the entire UK media for acting a buffoon, for being a Jew hater? Not really. Let's face it, Khaled Abu Aziz may become an award winning celebrity for performing an anti-Muslim caricature as long as he means it for real. Clearly, Borat, aka Sacha Baron Cohen, a Golders Green Jew, enjoys certain freedoms Khaled Abu Aziz lacks. This is obviously far from being Sacha Baron Cohen's fault. It It is something that hits at the very heart of British Society. If anything, we better thank Baron Cohen for exposing it. 2. Clearly British people do not meet Kazakhs on a daily basis. But they meet many Albanians, Romanians, Poles, Czechs, Kurds, Turks, Afghanis and other people who search for a new future in the prosperous West. Worryingly enough, Borat is made to look very much like an amalgam of an asylum seeker to the UK or any other European country. It is rather interesting that Sacha Baron Cohen, himself a son of a Jewish immigrant to Great Britain, invested so much energy portraying such a low image of Western Europe's newcomers. 3. While howling with laughter as you watch Borat's articulate misogynist performance, I suggest you bear in mind that Ali G, aka Borat aka Sacha Baron Cohen, is himself a practising reactionary misogynist. Seemingly, Sacha Baron Borat Cohen has put back his wedding to former Home And Away star Isla Fisher due to some deep tribal considerations and religious reasons. "The couple," so I learn, "have postponed the big day so Isla can study the Bible in Israel before converting to Sacha's religion of Judaism." Although Borat, sorry--Sacha Baron Cohen--has the full right to demand religious uniformity and conformity within his own family cell, one would expect Baron Cohen, a critical voice of reactionary conservatism and backward thinking, to transcend himself beyond obvious clannish considerations and religious boundaries. Seemingly, Sacha Baron Cohen is not that different from Borat. Apparently, he imposes a tribal conformity upon his woman. This is not a critique. On the contrary, the similarity between Borat and Baron Cohen, is just something to bear in mind. If anything, it makes Borat into an authentic expression of Baron Cohen's worldview. If to be honest, it makes Borat and Baron Cohen far more interesting characters. 4. With the help of Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen gives a bad name to anti-Semitism. This is obviously more than legitimate. Borat, the stereotypical anti-Semite is indeed a primitive vulgar creature. He eloquently brings to life the full scope of medieval anti-Jewish stereotypes as well as superstitions. In an old TV clip Borat manages to draw in a bunch of cowboys to join him shouting 'throw the Jew down the well'. In the film it is an old Jewish couple that happens to be transformed into cockroaches and money suckers. Yet, it shouldn't take one by surprise that Cohen, a man who spends his holidays in Israel, would portray anti-Semitism as a primitive medieval adventure. However, after last summer's Israeli extravaganza of brutality in Lebanon and the seemingly endless and daily flood of Palestinian blood made to spill by the IDF in Gaza and the West Bank, anti-Jewish feelings seem to be fuelled by Zionist crimes. Moreover, nowadays, when the Jewish State's influence within the American administration is academically and historically established in studies such as that by Walt and Meersheimer, when the Neocon-inspired crusade that has lead to a genocide in Iraq is largely endorsed by Zionist intellectual and ideological voices , some forms of anger against the 'Jew' should be comprehended as a political criticism rather than merely a primitive irrational outburst. This is, of course, not justifying 'throwing Jews down the well' but rather trying to explain from where such anti-Jewish feelings are originating. Borat is set to present anti-Semitism as a backward reactionary tendency. By doing so Baron Cohen and his team are there to block or even to shutter any form of criticism of global Zionism in general and of Israel in particular. This is indeed a non-violent legitimate political agenda, yet something to keep in the back of your mind while having an evening out at the cinema. I allow myself to guess that when the last echoes of laughter will fade away, we may be left with a deeper understanding of the imperial cultural colonial agenda. If I am indeed correct here, then Baron Cohen happens to serve the emerging Palestinian discourse of resistance. Shukran ya Borat or rather Dzienkuje Herr Cohen. Gilad Atzmon was born in Israel and served in the Israeli military. He is the author of two novels: A Guide to the Perplexed and the recently released My One and Only Love. Atzmon is also one of the most accomplished jazz saxophonists in Europe. His recent CD, Exile, was named the year's best jazz CD by the BBC. He now lives in London and can be reached at: atz@onetel.net.uk

    <p>My theory is that Sylar is eating the brains of the people he's killing, and in turn, absorbing their powers. Like Peter, but instead of "borrowing" a power, Sylar keeps it, and keeps adding them up. I believe he will kill the psycho radiation nuclear guy that looks like "Dexter" they introduced last night, gaining his powers, too. (It's WAY too obvious that the bearded Dexter looking psycho radiation nuclear guy is the one who blows up New York.) Then I believe Sylar's going to try to kill the cheerleader and eat her brain. If he did this, he would be unstoppable. i.e. Unable to die AND with nuclear powers. Save the cheerleader (from having her brain eaten and having her power absorbed by Sylar rendering him nigh invulnerable), save the world.</p> <p>Just a theory.</p>

    Why didnt you express that in the first place. No where in your original post is there anything about pitying the girl. On the internet vocal inflection must be expressed in words or misunderstandings like the one above offend. The way it is stated in detail above is sick fucking shit, excuse my language. And... I apologize for saying your fiance must be niave and or using you for allowing you to say things like that, and being with you... as your newest post seems to make you out as a sweet and sympathetic that changes everything and she is a smart girl with good taste.

    Nathan is Sylar

    by Yogsoggoth

    At least, that's my guess. The episode where Sylar first appeared, he was in shadows so it is obvious that he is someone we have already met. Like his brother, he can asborb powers but only by eating people's brains. Sylar also flew away and he is from New York.

  • Nov. 7, 2006, 2:25 p.m. CST

    I Think

    by baseballfury

    Sylar doesn't absorb powers, but simply feeds his by eating brains. I think he's a kind of super-psychokinetic. That would allow him to do the things they've shown him doing, and even explains the guy he froze, because if he had enough control over it he could slow down molocules, or even speed them up to set things on fire. Also, maybe he just takes the brains cause he's trying to figure out how he, and the others, are different. I don't know. Just a few thought.

    I don't think Nathan can be Sylar

    by chrth

    Granted, I've only seen 2 eps, but let me see how I can express this. <p> The show isn't going to be just one story. It's going to be a sequence of stories, just like a comic book. At some point, maybe after Ep 13, maybe the end of the season, it'll no longer say To Be Continued because they'll have finished the current Sylar story. <p> If Nathan is Sylar, then either you end up removing Nathan entirely (if you kill Sylar), or you have to push him to the sidelines until the next time he shows up (kind of like jailing Doc Ock for 15 issues). I don't think you can do that with a core actor of the show.

    Well - When I wrote it on my Blog - it was meant to be a curious "WHAT IF" - So much of HEROES is about taking these people's powers seriously in a real world way. Like Nathan Petrelli's question about how his "Flying" could possibly change the world for the better. "What would rescueing cats from trees do to make things better?" EXACTLY. <BR>I am sorry if the piece was taken out of context - The conversation that my fiancee and I had about CLAIRE was completely about how sucky it'd be, but how it could be perceived as an "Awesome Fantasy" to those that didn't think it out. Of course - it looks like we'll find out if her character gets saved or not soon enough. She might not be around much longer. WHO KNOWS.

The WRITERS are sick? I'm sorry, where in any episode of Heroes did a doctor say to Claire "you'll be a born again virgin for the rest of your life, oh and ps don't worry about STD's, that's safe too." ??? <br><br> no no no mr. knowles.

    According to the article...

    by glodene

    Due to the years of wear and tear caused by childbirth & sexual activity, a lot of excessive skin forms in the vaginal area resulting in "loosey goosey" effect. A laser is used to remove the excess skin, thus tightening the vaginal canal, which gives the tightness she had when she was a young nubile cheerleader, ergo - Rejuvenation. This is from the medical journals of Dr. Gropenfeil.

The artist dude has been hit by Sylar after "finishing" the next Hiro comic (the last panels we see are what we see Hiro do at the end, right?). <p> Now, the artist dude is in a different place, right? Because he left his other place with his paintings in the episode last night. Am I remembering correctly?

I'm a fan on the fence right now... i've seen every show and I've seen some shit that down right pisses me off (like most other shows on tv today they tend to not show common sense in the storyline, over complicate things, and make up complete crap without giving us reasons, ie bringing a radiation detector with them? HOW THE FUCK DOES AN FBI AGENT KNOW TO BRING A RADIATION DETECTOR WITH HER? WTF IS A PSYCHIC WORKING WITH THE FBI AND NOT THE CIA? among many other bs shit pulled out of thin air) but i've also seen a lot of shit that i like about this show like (anytime they show hiro.. and nathan is rubbing a off a bit on me) BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT A BIG MOTHER FUCKING BUT!!! THIS IS NOT SUPERMAN MOTHER FUCKING RETURNS!!! DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT GIVE KIDS FUCKING SUPER POWERS... IF YOU WANTED THE INCREDIBLES THEN MAKE THE MOTHER FUCKING INCREDIBLES!! IF YOU WANTED THE MOTHER FUCKING SUPER KID SQUAD THEN MAKE THE MOTHER FUCKING SUPER KID SQUAD?? WTF IS NEXT?? A MOTHER FUCKING FLYING DOG? OR A SUPER STRENGTH LIZARD??? STFU WITH THAT MOTHER FUCKING DUMB ASS KID THAT CANT ACT WORTH SHIT!!! I FUCKING HATE YOU NBC!!! YOU'RE RUINING THE ONLY MOTHER FUCKING SHOW I AM SORT OF INTO!!! AND WHEN THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO SEE SOME ACTION!?!?! AND SOME TWISTS?!!??! AND ACTUALLY" FUCKING FIGURE OUT WHATS GOING ON WITH THE PLOT!! SO FAR WE ARE AT POINT A STILL WITH THE FUCKING PLOT!! NO ONE KNOWS WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, AND HOW THE FUCK A BOMB IS GOING TO BLOW UP IN THE CITY YET AND IT'S BEEN HALF A FUCKING SEASON... NO ONE HAS SEEN ANY FUCKING REAL COOL ASS SHOWDOWNS YET AND THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT HAS B EEN PURE SHIT FULL OF FUCKING CLICHES!!! IM GETTING REALLY ANGRY!!!

    by Alientoast

    "HOW THE FUCK DOES AN FBI AGENT KNOW TO BRING A RADIATION DETECTOR WITH HER?"...Well, maybe it has something to do with the autopsy that revealed the charred body was RADIOACTIVE!

And yes, if you take a big-breasted, scantily dressed sex-machine teenager and surround her with "fantasy," it's still just fucking porn that's too pathetic to admit that it's porn because, when you live in your parents' basement, the last thing you want is for Mom and Dad to known you're a fucking pervert.
