Heroes

This show sure has a way with final scenes! Last week's final scene (Claire the indestructable cheerleader coming to on an autopsy table with her organs exposed after a rapist quarterback accidentally "killed" her) was really cool. But this week - Hiro appearing to Peter in a green-lit subway car where everything else is frozen in time to tell him in English that he'd come from the future? Very very cool. I'm finally starting to care a little bit about the characters . . . except the stripper with the split personality. I actually fast-forwarded through her scenes with the flying politician - someone tell me if I missed something important.

Seing Claire use her power to punish the teen rapist, seeing some of the heroes starting to interact with each other, having Sean kidnapped and tortured (?) by Claire's adopted dad, and Hiro's Vegas Rain Man interlude for a touch of levity? Most evenly enjoyable episode yet.

Any of the other Junkettes (or non-Junkette blog readers) watching? Is this show ever going to find a way to make the middles of the episode as enthralling as the final scenes? Anybody else wish we could have more Claire, more Hiro, and more Sean and less of everyone else?

I actually am a big fan of heroes, and it's definitely one of those shows I did not expect to like. I agree though, i could deal without the stripper...I love Peter and Claire's story lines the best. I'd encourage anyone to give it a chance.

I'm watching. Haven't seen last night's show yet. I agree that the stripper is the weakest link.
