Kindred is a slow-moving but still intriguing episode of "Heroes"

6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Claire apologizes for her argument with her dad in the previous episode. He accepts. At school, she tells West, the boy who watched her cut her toe, that she was just fixing her nails. He doesn't believe and asks her why she can't be who she really is. Claire leaves to go to class. In 17th century Japan, Takezo Kensei, Hiro's idol, finds he can heal from fatal wounds. He tells Hiro he wants to use them to make him rich. Hiro reveals his own powers and teleports himself and Takezo to a big battle scene to teach him a lesson. In Ireland, Peter, who still has amnesia, agrees to help commit armed robbery in order to get the box with his history inside. His mind-reading skills alerts him that one of the brothers is going to betray the gang's leader. He confronts them but gets no support. After visiting DL's graveyard in Las Vegas, Niki and Micah move to New Orleans, La. to start a new life. Waiting there is Micah's grandmother (Nichelle Nichols, another welcome "Star Trek" veteran). Mohinder comes back to his apartment with cheers from Molly but doubts from Matt about the assignment Mohinder is on. After West mentions about regeneration again in class, Claire leaves with West following. After they reveal themselves, West then takes Claire up and away for sightseeing. She loves it. After the robbery succeeds, Peter sees one of the brothers pull the gun and manages to use his mind to hit him against the wall. He almost kills him but the female in the gang convinces him to stop. When he gets his box, he's reluctant because he seemed to enjoy his cold-blooded methods and thinks his past is similar. He then kisses the lady who saved him. In Hounduras, twins Maya and Alejandro are caught stealing a car with Alejandro being shipped to jail. Maya tries to get her brother out but gets arrested before she kills them all. When she meets her brother, they hold hands and everyone is alive again but they get out of jail with another prisoner before they're seen again. The car has a bumper sticker of the team of Claire's school. Hiro tells Kensei and his lady he has to go back. He has written Ando all this time about his adventures in letters in his sword that Ando has. At the last minute, he stays. A woman on a beach is serving drinks to someone waking up. It's Sylar! We find out they're actually at a warehouse and Sylar has lost his powers. The woman vows to help to get them back and changes to various people to reveal hers. Sylar kills her and calls her Candace who was brunette instead of redhead as she is here but dead she's actually a much larger woman. Mohinder's new office is in Issac's old apartment. His superior has vowed to keep tabs on him. He finds another of Issac's old paintings and e-mails it to Noah Bennett's house. It depicts of Noah dead while Claire and West are kissing on the beach. Earlier, West had revealed of being abducted by a "Horned-Rimmed Glasses" guy. Claire comes in and greets her dad just as Noah turns his computer off. Crisis averted for now...Intriguing but slow-moving, this episode does answer some questions about last season. Oh, and one more thing, Niki is also still trying to find a cure for her powers and has called Mohinder's superior for help. Should pick up the pace in another week so until next time...

Hiro is no Hero

4/10
Author: regular guy from United Kingdom

It can't just be me, one person, a speck on this wide world that is alone in his hatred for Hiro Nakamura. Whenever i say so much as one bad word against his name i seem to be greeted by disgusted faces, maybe i just have to face the fact that the world LOVES Hiro Nakamura. And i have no idea why. Hiro Nakumura may well be the most irritating character ever seen on TV, he looks like a Japanese Timmy Mallet, he sounds like someone who has overdosed on Helium and he behaves like a hyper ten year old. He was bad enough in the first series, but in the second series he is now unbearable especially in his scenes with the equally annoying Takezi, the white Japanses legend.

For this heroes fan, the second series has been a huge let down, a massive flop- the show has slid from its place with the best of 'em- Lost, Prison Break, CSI to the squalor of the rest. Peter is still a wet towel, Claire is still confused and whiny ( still looking mighty fine to make up for it), Nathan is still grumpy, sylar is still alive (how??). And then there's Micah. I grimace at even the sound of his name, the kid is the most boring, annoying, smothering character ever created.

So, i find myself with few characters to sympathise with, there's the lovable big guy- Parkman, the intriguing yet probably boring Mohinder, the mysterious Mr. Bennet and the funny guy Ando.

I'll keep watching but i'm not the edge of jumping ship, heroes takes itself so seriously and thinks it can encapsulate an audience even though not much happens in each episode- i think it will be a matter of time before we all forget.

One more thing, what the hell happened to Claude???? i loved that guy.
