I think it jumped when, in the last episode before the latest hiatus, they basically asked us to send them our story ideas!
I’ll still watch it, because I need to unwind after a hard night’s home construction, but I’m not excited about it any more. Two long breaks, lost momentum, and I keep expecting something to happen and they keep dragging it out.
I didn’t even remember most of what happened last time, so I’m glad they recapped it (normally I hate recaps). I just remembered Linderman’s funny line about his Pot Pie.
I was hoping to see him eat the Pot Pie, but they left that part out. And that was the main reason I watched!
How stupid is Mohinder? He tried to execute Sylar, fails, is tortured and knows he’s going to be killed. He then manages to knock out Sylar, but instead of finding the gun or a heavy object to bash his head in, he drags a dead body out of the room, down the stairs, into a cab (with a surprisingly jaded cab driver, I might add), and leaves!
If knocking out Sylar worked (which I’m surprised about, considering what else he has been through), then smashing his head should have worked. And we know Mohinder is okay with killing people, he pulled the trigger last episode. So why not now?
Because it wasn’t in the script!
And Peter, after turning invisible, didn’t do anything until he got hit with the glass. He’s fought this guy before, he knows he’s a killer, he almost had his own brain removed, why is he just standing there? He fought tougher with Isaac.
And speaking of Isaac, isn’t it too bad that, with all the future he sees, he couldn’t figure out that letting Sylar get another power is bad? Take a cue from Eden, dude, and make your brain unusable. However I will generously assume that Isaac knows that somehow Sylar having the future-vision power will actually lead to Sylar’s downfall. But I may be giving the writers too much credit.
They could still pull off a good show, but I don’t see any evidence of that happening. They have a lot of good ideas, but the execution is no longer compelling.
