Did You Know?

The names of the 3 soldiers killed at the beginning of the episode is revealed to be Price, Whitman, and Holiday. The same names used in the film The Running Man (1987) for the previous seasons "winners".See more »
Revealing mistakes: In the very last shot, where Sylar and Danko drive away in their car, there are tire marks on the ground that partly lead directly under a street lantern which otherwise looks like it has been standing there for years. The lamp and the adjacent hedge look like movie props.See more »

Loved it!, 2 April 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I remember when I first started watching heroes, it was a day similar to this. Spring was starting and the day was lazy. I pressed play and expected absolutely nothing from Heroes, since I thought it was just another super hero show that will not be worthy of my attention, luckily I was wrong. The show was lifting and from that moment I just couldn't stop watching it. I patiently waited for the 3rd season and the Villains, which started strong but got to twirled up in its own twist. Then I lost my interest again and switched to Battlestar Galactica which kept me amused for a while, but then the last three episodes turned the new page for Heroes, I am once again the follower. Into the Asylum is one of the better episodes I watched and the highlight of the show is of course the ending that is simply brilliant. The Animals - We gotta get out of this place is just perfect match. It gives you that 70s vibe that is always good to feel, the vibe of something that is going to happen and that is going to be great. Although there is no cliff hanger at the end of the show I cannot wait for the next one, because they have finally realized that the real energy of the show is in the ordinary in these extraordinary people and that they don't need the big drama that surrounded every single sentence of our heroes, they just need to be down to earth as they were in the first season. They need not be idolized, the characters, for us to feel drown to them, they just need to get their human form again. And that is what the ending is giving to us, a simpler times and with that a much higher quality of the show. I loved it!
