Heroes Round Table: The Eclipse Part 1

by at . Comments

Welcome to our 20th Heroes Round Table.

While fans of the show gather in the forums to discuss every character and story line, our staff comes together every week to analyze the latest developments from the latest episode.

Topics in this edition include: annoying story lines; Peter vs. Nathan; and HRG's fathering skills. Let's get to the Q&A...

Which couple has a brighter future: Elle/Sylar or Daphne/Parkman?
A. Hiro: Based on the latest round of spoilers, it doesn't look good for Daphne.

Milover: Until that eclipse clears up, the future looks dark for everyone. But I'll choose Elle and Sylar because I love the chemistry between Kristen Bell and Zachary Quinto.

Timex: Well, from the future I saw, it sure looked like Sylar was a single dad.  So I'm going to have to give it to Daphne and Parkman.  I love the ability to see the future.  Takes out any room for drama.

More annoying story line: Hiro as a ten-year old or anything involving Mohinder?
Timex: Hiro as a ten-year old for sure.  Why?  Because Hiro is one of my favorite characters and he's being rendered useless right now.  Mohinder has always been useless.

A. Hiro: There's no way to spin the Hiro story line. Masi Oka was nominated for an Emmy after season one. Look what the show has done to him since!

Milover: I hate how they've destroyed Hiro, but at least I laugh at his antics occasionally. But Mohinder has bone-headedly sided with the evil side for three consecutive seasons now.


Choose a side in the argument between the Petrelli brothers: Peter or Nathan?
Milover: Nathan. He said it best himself: remember when he flew you to the heavens and saved your life, Peter? Yeah. Now shut up.

Timex: Can I choose neither?  Can you guys stop being nancies and put away your feelings for a second while you save the world?

A. Hiro: Arthur. He has his two sons exactly where he wants them now: at each other's throats, ignoring the fate of the world.

Would you want HRG as your father?

A. Hiro: No. I want a father with whom I can throw a baseball around, not bludgeon to death with a two-by-four.

Milover: Heck yes! No guy would ever dare date my little sister again!

Timex: Yes and yes!  No offense to my dad, but he never taught me how to fight using a piece of wood.  How am I supposed to go up against heroes with superpowers without intimate knowledge of stick fighting 101?

omg ya i kno. he may be trying to "protect her", as always, but right now he isn't using good parenting skills. Bad HRG! and when i eat corn today for thanksgiving, that's all i'm going to be able to think about. if i burst out laughing at the table, that's probably why.

The scene where Hiro pelts Parkman with corn while yelling "this is part of the hero's quest!" was totally brilliant.
