Brother's Keeper Episode Review
17 November 2009 | by (United States, Fl) – See all my reviews

If this show really last for a fifth season it's going to suffer a lot without the CGI but maybe right now the show is suffering but not for the computer generated imagery but rather due the poor script to try to emulate the effects of season one Season Four had been so far greater than season 3 but it has been chaotic and slow, maybe I am expecting a divided arc much like season three who was divided opposite to season one, maybe season four is more close to season 1 but still the show is going on a slow pace and since more characters are being written out of the show, Heroes it's basically right now a melodrama between a small group of altruistic people versus an army of super powered individuals who hide as a circus; if we have to blame somebody we can blame on the second season or the writer strikes, but the real deal to blame are the writers who took the direction of the show into something that so far seems so boring and a little bit filled with plot holes around certain characters that not even the comic series can explain.

Brother's Keeper wasn't that bad it was more of an episode centering on the relation between the Petrelli brothers and how Sylar-Nathan regained the other part of himself creating an inner conflict that probably deleted the personality of the villain. That's basically the main story of the episode; the side one was Hiro trying to save Mohinder much like he saved Charlie but with the purpose to retrieve a movie about Samuel past but there aren't elements that gives to the viewers something more specifically about Samuel himself except that he was born in Coyote Mesa or his master plan. It's so hard to predict the direction of the show because of the constant changes that are almost every week and even so it's difficult to know the evolution of the characters or if there is going to be new ones. I was trying to think about what positive changes the show could have and two I thought, the first one modify Sylar (or bring back Adrian Pasdar and revision Heroes cash cow Zachary Quinto) character to make it more humane and less corny and write off Mohinder Suresh for good... maybe tat could help but at the end I'm just talking to myself.
