**THEY’RE DROPPIN’ LIKE FLIES ALERTS** The truth is: the Writer’s Strike sucks! And the consequences are: our fave shows are running out of episodes. Well, it seems that the effects of the strike are finally screeching our fave shows to a complete halt with next week’s ep being the season finale of Heroes. Heroes only had 11 episodes of the entire season completed before the strike began and many of our other fave shows, like Ugly Betty, aren’t too far behind. Jinkies! We need a resolution! Show those writers the monay! Okay, let’s discuss some Heroes action while we still can.
I have to admit, I thought this episode was one hot, dirrrty mess! We were like all over the place and flashing back and forth and the characters were dropping like flies and that dang Ohm Shanti virus was creeping around every corner. Jeez, it’s like they knew the finale was coming 12 episodes earlier than expected, so they tried to cram all this content in… But I was just plain lost. Okay, where to even begin. Well, first I have to complain that Peter Petrelli had his shirt on for the entire ep… Sylar did strip down, so I guess that’ll have to do. But what’s with Pete’s totes obsesh with that darn Caitlin chic. He’s like so mono-focused on her that it’s kinda annoying. Like, when he and Adam ambushed that Victoria lady, the one who discovered / created the Ohm Shanti virus, he’s all like “you can tell us where the virus is and then I’ll destroy it and then Caitlin will be saved.” Um Petey, how ’bout the rest of the friggin’ world?!? Love is blind, I guess. And for one sec, we thought Adam was good, then he was bad and now I just don’t know. All I know is cute Vicky is toast and I was really excited for yet another new character, NOT. But I do love Joanna Cassidy, the actress who played Victoria, but she’s dead so, oh well! And what did you guys think of Hiro coming at Petey and Adam in the Home Depot with his all mighty sword. Hmmm, Hiro vs Peter… Should be interesting to see how this pans out in the finale. They’ll prolly just kiss! Swmack!
And WTHull is going on with Mehican Maya and Sylar? Things are really heating up between those two. Actually, I never really saw their romance coming. I’m sorry, but Sylar is so gay, gay, gay! Poor Maya, she’ll figure it out soon enough. And I also couldn’t believe that Sylar killed her bro, Alejandro! I mean, why put us thru the effort of finally getting attached to these new characters only to kill ‘em. Swears, I’m never gonna fall for a new character again! Oh, and Jessikki and Micah are reunited, but Jessikki has the Ohm Shanti virus, so she’s prolly toasted soon too. We also find out that Monica is St. Joan… in a black hoodie! Monica is so bad-azz. She just watches her video iPod and then pulls out these rad parcour moves. But she totes got busted by the thugs for trying to retrieve Micah’s stolen backpack! And why was he so freaked about that backpack? ‘Cause of some necklace that his Dad gave him? I guess I can understand, but c’mon, get over it!
Let’s not forget the Battle of the Blondes out in California. We have Claire Bear, all sad that her horn-rimmed Dad is dead, being followed by ELLectronica Mars and her Slurpies! Um, don’t ever let your Slurpie get in the way of your escape… Duh ELLectronica, it’s like Heroes 101! She’s so inept! But I don’t think that Claire will call in the Haitian to erase the memory of her Daddy… She needs to remember. And I agree with Tommy, I’m so glad the mother is off her Stepford Wives kick. I prefer her now that she’s kinda grown a pair! And I’m wondering how Bennett is gonna get back on the scene too? That girl just needs to put some clothes on! Okay, I have no idea where this season has been heading, so I’m very interested to see what’s gonna happens next week in the season finale of Heroes! Oh, I also found out that that Heroes spin off show… Heroes: Origins has been postponed indefinitely due to the strike… Another one bites the dust.
