The system of equations given during Claire's linear algebra aptitude test is: x+2y+3w+4z=10 2x-y+w-z=1 3x+y+4w+3z=11 -2x+6y+4w+10z=18(However Clare's comment, "Is this a joke?", is pertinent. It is indeed a joke. A solution is simple and ridiculous: x = y = w = z = 1. However, it is not the only solution. For example, x=2.4, y=3.8, w=z=0 is also a solution. The complete solution could be written as: x=2.4-s-.4t y=3.8-s-1.8t w=s z=t For all real values of s, t. See more »

[first lines]
Samuel Sullivan: My brother Joseph and I have had two families. The first one... Well, let's just say, it didn't work out too well. But over the years, we made ourselves a new one. And it was to this family, all of you... that his heart really belonged. You see... a family is something that... Joseph and I needed. It offered us protection from the outside world - a world that... never understood, or appreciated, what makes us different. There are others like us out there - in the shadows, in the ...

a start of a new beginning
29 September 2009 | by AidonianSee all my reviews

Season 3 definitely had its faults: with having focused on to much action, less on character like in season 1 and 2, a lot of fans were disappointed. But redemption, with 3 episodes underway is proving to redeem itself. I have already read several bad reviews on the first 3 episodes and in the end, it shows how spoiled these people are. Instead of giving it a chance, they turn their back on it, Redemption is back on track with the primary focus on characters instead of the action. We are introduced to new characters with new abilities, who aren't recycled ones. One plus to all this: it stops being about to save the world for the million time, which was getting old real fast. If you want characters behaving like in comics, running around in tights, think again. What I truly find interesting is Matt-Sylar-Nathan connection here. You would have to watch to see what I mean.
