In the satellite view of the airstrip, the hangars are beside the runways at a 45 degree angle. As the plane takes off, Nathan is standing watching the plane take off from the front door of the hangar. This means the plane is taking off at 45 degrees to the runway. See more »


Angela Petrelli: Claire, you have got to believe me, it's over. All of it. Primatech, the Company, Pinehearst - all of it. And we all have to accept that.
Claire Bennet: No. You're just trying to put me on the bench. He's out there, and if I'm the only one who sees that, then fine. I'll go find him myself.

A very intense beginning to the new storyline
25 April 2009 | by LaFeeChartreuseSee all my reviews

Well, the new "volume" is certainly starting off with a bang... This storyline feels bleaker and scarier than any of the previous ones, because the enemy isn't just one shadowy corporation, or even two competing ones, but the US government. And given the atmosphere of paranoia in the US since 9/11, that makes it feel disturbingly realistic. The atmosphere is much less comic book this time around and much more dystopian political SF.

It's lost none of its ability to keep me on the edge of my seat, either... the three episodes I've seen so far of the new volume have all been tense, suspenseful and effective. It's hard to see how this all could possibly end well, but it's very gripping seeing just how scary things are going to get before they maybe, somehow get better. And in the meantime, it's almost as effective as political commentary as it is as entertainment.
