    Allow me to quote my previous reply:

    EDIT TO REPLY TO PREVIOUS POSTER'S EDIT:

    I'm a stupid fucker and need to be lead through a story apparently. Either that, or I've learned from previous intrigue based shows to take things at face value, because the writers aren't bright enough to leave meanings hidden.

    I see so many disconnects in this show at this point, that assuming the brother didn't forget what his power really was seems to be jumping through giant leaps of logic, while assuming even the writers forgot what they already wrote I'm pretty comfortable with.

    And I think I'm beginning to come to grips with the fact that this show just isn't for me. I enjoyed those first episodes so very, very much that I really, REALLY want to like it. But the past few weeks have left me feeling pretty disgusted with myself for wasting time on watching it. I realize I'm opening myself up to a lot of "you're too stupid to get it" responses, but I think I may be done unless next Monday sees me too lazy to get off the couch.

    I wish I could look past the annoying promos for this show and just watch it.
    "I...I think I can fly." (echoes)
    "Save the cheerleader. Save the world"

    It just seems so pretentious. For all the viewers that tune in, I think their are more that are turned off by the ads.

    POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT:

    I don't know if this was mentioned yet (too lazy to read through the posts), but isn't it just a LITTLE more than a coincidence that the logo of HEROES is a solar eclipse? Don't tell me that the four seconds in episode 1 where they mention the eclipse determines the logo!!!!!!!

    Was it just me, or did the tatto/scar/symbol on Nikki's shoulder disappear when they did the over the shoulder shot looking at the friend when Jessica took over and made the comment to the friend along the lines of Nikki not being there any more?

    If it's consistent, that's absolutely true. When Jessica showed up during the interlude with the politician, the tatoo showed up. When she woke up as Nikki, the tatoo was gone.

    Hey all; I just started watching this series this afternoon and I'm pretty hooked. This is a wild show. I'm curious to find out what the mysterious symbol represents. (The one that looks like something you'd see in sheet music, the odd "S"-shaped thing.)

    Watch that again, and tell me if you see a bright burst of light just east of the Yucatan in Mexico in the title sequence. I've been wondering what the heck that is. Just paused it there atm and looking at it... it's not a natural feature.

    I'd say an explosion, but of what? And why?

    One of the best episodes to date. The new girl hero is awesome. It hit me like a ton of bricks when Slyar killed her. Hiro is the man. I hope that he does in fact save her. That picture in the end sent chills down my spine.

    I was bummed to see that the girl died. She seemed really cool, I do hope Hiro is successful in trying to save her. Mr. Bennet is still a creepy mofo, even though he says he's doing everything that he's doing to save Claire. Next week looks pretty interesting.

    Yeah my jaw dropped right open.

    Great episode...so what do we think of the cheerleader's dad? So is he actually a good guy, but is one of those types that will do whatever it takes to get something done?

    Seemed more like a "SPLURCH" to me.

    This episode was fantastic as always but better than precious. Why? No stupid split personality girl.

    As to answer Edge's question, they captured Nuke because due to the strangeness of the murder, they thought he did it. Only Matt and the FBI agent know otherwise. And now he escaped. I have a strong feeling he is the cause of the explosion when Hiro traveled to the future.

    But now Hiro is somewhere in the past. Nothing changed with the girl except that she is in the picture. He also hasn't returned. But he hasn't returned t othat spot. I have a feeling he will reappear at Claire's homecomming.

    But i am still trying to figure out how saving the cheerleader will save the world. My best guess is that the dad will unleash the heroes he has control over to hunt down all the other heroes as revenge for killing his daughter. During the fight, Sylor uses his powers to make the nuclear man go critical and BOOM.

    I don't think the dad is evil per say but he is very controlling. I have a feeling he is testing on these heroes to better understand his girl. He's not bad, just controlling.

    So does Mohinder (sp) have powers emerging (the visions), and whats his connection with the kid (that would be Sylar?)
