Sylar really does steal the show
25 April 2009 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I really like the way they're handling Sylar this time around -- he's showing the perfect balance of just enough humanity to to be keep him interesting and avoid making him a stereotypical villain, and just enough really monstrous behaviour that we never forget what he is. He's definitely one of the most intriguingly complex villains TV has seen in a long time.

And the fact that they're also able to insert the odd bit of humour into his scenes despite the disturbing elements is great -- I laughed out loud at the "*Technically* I'm a serial killer" bit, and the song that came on the radio in the last car scene.

I do like many of the other characters too, but in this episode it didn't really feel like most of them were being used to their full potential. I particular, Hiro and Ando's subplot was kind of lackluster -- they're usually a delight, but this time around, not so much. But I suppose one of the down sides of having a cast as large as Heroes does is that they can't all shine at once...
