    TV Re: Godsend (112)

    Where is everyone?!

    Godsend ROCKED! Best ep since the premiere, IMO.

    Okay, more thoughts:

    1. I like the route they're taking with Claire and her sidekick. HP is kicking thespian booty. Seriously.
    2. Niki continues to thrill me. I believe Jessica is running a long con.
    3. I hardly recognised Chris Eccleston!
    4. What is deal with Linderman handing out a Permatech card? Can he seriously be that cocky? I thought the gun was too much.
    5. I really liked Matt and Wife-of-Matt tonight. However, I hope that doesn't mean that Agent Clea is going away.

    6. Come to think of it, I liked nearly every one of the Heroes & Sidekicks tonight. I even almost liked DL!

    From what I understand the memory / mind wipe thing is not 100 % permanate. He told Claire that he went back to her mother & brother many times. So my guess is within time Zach will regain his memories.

    Good show, an 8.5/10 from me.
    First 20 minutes were great, loved the hole sword thing and what happened went he did it the wrong way.
    It did get a little slow in the middle but most of that looked like it’s setting up what is to come.
    Great end, though the commercial lasted almost six minutes, I loved Peter up against the pole. ‘You can’t see me!’

    GREAT ep! I really liked the whole Zack/Claire friendship starting over, and Hiro with the fake sword- hehe, that was priceless!

    And of course Peter and Claude- this storyline definitly looks like it could get very interesting. And we got the first mention of Hiro's father!


    9/10

    re: Claire's "real" parents working for HRG- I thought it was pretty obvious right from the start that they were just actors hired to fill the part so Claire would stop asking questions. This just confirms it.

    re: Hiro- While I doubt they're going in this direction I think this presents a fabulous opportunity to show Hiro gradually going darkside. First it was cheating at the casinos to raise money for the trip, now it's stealing a sword to focus his power... I wonder what he'll do next in the name of "Good."

    It's a pity his sidekick (blanking on the name) didn't get a chance to finish his comment to Hiro- it's isn't his powers that are failing, it's his confidence.

    Chris Eccleston- If I hadn't been looking for him I would never have recognized him. No worries about folks mixing him up with the Doctor!

    Loved Nathan and loved the extra shadings we got to his character. *hugs* He's still one of my favorites. That whole scene in the loft with Nathan scoffing at the coincidences and Hiro bursting in... LOL! The look on his face! "Flying Man!" Hee!

    Great episode... lots of happenings... Wonderful to see Eccleston even if for a brief moment.
    I was very relieved to see that Sylar is still in custody... for a while there I thought he absconded.

    So Nevada is the centre of all these happenings. The implication is that these individuals are a result of nuclear testing perhaps?
    I loved the background to Hiro's sword... and Hiro... what a character.

    Linderman has always intrigued me as the real mystery man but his agenda with these "specials" is becoming equally interesting.

    Looks like young Ted is learning to control his powers.

    The acting in this episode was pretty good. The cast is getting noticeably more comfortable with their respective roles and it shows. Even the Niki/DL/Micah arc didn't grate on me the way it usually does. I particularly loved Mohinder in this.

    BTW did Chris Eccleston's character remind anyone else of that freaky subway ghost dude from Ghost? His reaction to Peter seeing him gave me a sense of deja vu.

    Well, ISTM the most frequent question was how 'much' they worked for him. Now we know the answer is 'very'; they weren't 3rd party contractors or minor associates. "Mom" showed up in the background at Primatech a couple of eps ago, and now we've seen "Dad" as the doctor (for Sylar).

    Good episode. I loved the ending with Niki and alter-ego. The scene where Hiro takes the fake sword was pretty cool, with slow motion, and Hiro finding out the sword was a fake. I give it a ***1/2.

    Fantastic episode. It was well worth the wait. Love that Christopher Eccleston is in it. Hiro is absolutely adorable. I'm very glad that Claire and Zack are working on renewing their friendship, love the direction Clair is going. I'm also very happy that the painter guy is clean and sober and still has his ability. And Jessica/Niki is absolutely cool. Oh and am I the only one who was shouting at Peter "don't go to the desert"?

    Just read that another famous actor will show up in the back half,
    Spoiler:
    George Takei is set to play Hiro's father in 3 episodes
    . And I also read that it's been renewed for a full second season. This show so totally rocks. Best new show of the season.

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing, perhaps that's why I didn't recognise him earlier.

    Otherwise, very enjoyable
    I laughed when Hiro pulled the sword out and it was a fake! And then groaned when it said "Linderman" on it Im all for linkage, but this is getting ridiculous!

    I loved the fake sword moment too. But as for the Linderman thing. Realistically the linkage is much...I don't have Donald Trump's name on my underwear after all, despite his disturbing tendency to be everywhere. Within the context of the show though, it seems to be all about connections and a sense of destiny so it didn't bother me too much.

    I didn't recognize Eccleston at all... especially since I forgot he was going to be in it. Maybe I would have if I'd been expecting him but...in my memory I still can't make the connection.

    I was very pleased with this episode. Overall, I'd give it a 9/10. I was just so happy the show was back, and this episode didn't let down at all.

    I laughed so hard at that "Aw, crap...busted." look on Nathan's face. Too funny. And Hiro was so happy to see him again. "FLYING MAN!"

    I love how they introduced the invisible man. I read small spoilers, enough to know it'd be Eccleston and he was meant to help Peter--but the fact that he's a petty thief and apparently a little cracked as well? Brilliant. I assumed he'd be completely the opposite.

    What was with Sylar's little pet? Just something creepy they stuck in there or is there a meaning to it?

    The quick clip they showed of Claire's supposed "real mom" reminded me of the dog-raising mom she's always known. Maybe I was just overwhelmed by squee at that point.

    In the first episode Mohinder talked about the cockroach, if anything was
    'created in god's image, it would be the cockroach'. And that they can 'live for a long amount of time with no food, can survive radiation and his head being cut off'.
    It could be a plot point in maybe season 3 or 4 the Sylar could come back after surviving the nuke blast. Then he could be king of the cockroaches. LOL
