“The world has been uneasy. This is the breakthrough we’ve been waiting for. Ladies and Gentlemen…E.P.I.C.” -Erica Kravid
As much as I liked the premiere, Under the Mask was a bit all over the place. The show introduced us to a lot more characters with special powers but I have to admit that I am quite confused with where they are going with the story.
I did, however, like what Renautas did with Molly Walker. Those epically hilarious glasses are the perfect weapon in locating any Evo and it’s going to be almost impossible for anyone to hide in plain sight now. Still, this episode was the equivalent of getting lost in a dark forest. I understand that there are a lot of stories and a lot of characters but Game of Thrones never seems to have a problem with these types of things so Heroes Reborn needs to take a lesson.
Heroes was always at its best when it was dark. Sylar was such an intriguing and horrific character from the original but so far we haven’t been introduced to any really dark Evo’s yet. Sure there is a great mystery that needs to be unraveled but let’s focus more on one Evo at a time rather than time jumping all over the place like Hiro Nakamura.
Hope this review is the perfect medicine to go with your steak and eggs. Enjoy the recap, fellow Evo’s.
“When you look back at the things you’ve done, the decisions you’ve made…the last thing you want to feel is regret. Am I right?” -Noah Bennet
Yes! One of my favorite series of all time has returned and I could not be more thrilled. First, I love X-Men because who the hell doesn’t love the X-men? Second, I loved the original Heroes series even though the story fell apart half way through the second season. That said, this show has so much potential because of the stories that can be told where ordinary people must fulfill their destiny. Save the Cheerleader, Save the World, right? Well, Claire Bear is dead now so the world is doomed.
Returning from the original series is Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, Angela Petrelli, Noah Bennet, the Haitian, Micah Sanders and Hiro Nakamura. No Sylar, unfortunately but maybe he’ll make a cameo at some point. Also, Mohinder better not still be a fucking lizard or else!
The premiere was full of new characters and Evo’s and some were clearly better than others. Tommy has one of the best powers ever regardless what he thinks about it but over in Tokyo, Miko’s entire story line was beyond fucked up. What in the hell was going on with that? At least they kept the same narration from the original series because the writing is absolutely brilliant when it comes to that.
So get ready for a whole new cast of characters with brand new super powers and enjoy the recap.
