Heroes – Season 1, Episode 8 – Seven Minutes to Midnight

This show just kicks ass more and more every week.  Lots of great revelations this week, the biggest being that Claire’s father may not be the villain we all thought he was – he’s just protecting his daughter.  This doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a good guy since we’re not sure why he’s kidnapping and mindwiping heroes.  My guess is he’s doing this looking for Syler who he knows is after his daughter.  Meanwhile Syler is continuing his hunting of heroes as he kills a new one in a diner where Hiro is eating.  Hiro in his ongoing quest to be a hero travels back in time to prevent the death.

We also finally get to see a hint of Mohiner’s possible powers as well as what happened after Isaac left with Mohinder’s neighbor, and the fallout from Matt hitting the cop who had an affair with his wife and his finding of the other hero last week who also seems to be missing some time.

I know I’m not really providing too much detail but the truth is you need to watch this yourself.  As complex as it is, the show does not get mired or lost in its puzzles and mysteries.  Next week looks to be exciting as the heroes finally come together to save the cheerleader.  There’s no way I’m going to miss it.

    I agree – this show really needs to be watched to be appreciated. When I first started to watch it I thought it was just an X men clone – but – like you – have been really enjoying the twists and mystery. I hope the cheerleader does get saved
