April 7, 2009 10:13 pm Another thing I forgot to mention in my previous post is that most library take part in some form of an inter-library loan system. Where you can borrow copies of books from other libraries in the same region. This is an excellent service and most of the time they have a website where you can login and search and request the titles yourself.  My local library has the ability to request titles by ISBN number.  So a quick search on Amazon gives me that number and I am able to match up exactly the books I want to get. A really great way to get stuff even if your local library doesn't have it immediately available. So @comicBOOKchris, this would be a great way to get them even somewhere like the NY library. Just a thought.
April 7, 2009 4:34 pm Sweet!  That looks awesome.  I can't wait to see that. These animated films have really been great and I am sure this one will keep up the string of awesomeness.

My mom has been a librarian since I was 3 years old and I grew up in the stacks.  So my love of reading and going to the library was engrained very early on.  However I credit the vast selection of graphic novels and TPB's that a library I lived close to about 5 years ago had as the reason I got back into comics.  Even before I discovered iFanboy early on in 2005 I had gotten sucked back in on reading stuff I didn't even know about.  I think the library can play a vital role in introducing people to comics.  And you are spot on correct about how libraries are realizing the potential draw for kids. The library my mom still works out, knowing that I am a comic fan, has requested that I submit a list of stuff for them to buy to expand their graphic novel section.  They have devoted a whole wing of their ADULT section to it now.  Very promising thing.  Makes me excited that it is catching on in this way.

 Great article.

I don't remember which season we had the future episode where Sylar and Peter fight and in that Sylar ended up having the ability to shapeshift.  Up till now we had never seen him have that ability.  So I wonder if this is where that comes in.  If of course we are even still on that path to that future.

Anyways...just an observation.

March 30, 2009 12:15 pm Brilliant! Good form Jimski.  This is quite possibly the best thing I have read in awhile.

I agree with the consensus that the episode was really good and I won't rehash everything that people have pointed out.  But I was curious about something.

Nathan's team of people have said several times that they have frozen bank accounts and all aspects of the various Heroes lives....so how is it that Ando and Hiro can get out of the country on an airplane? They can catch people by watching them thru street traffic cams but someone can buy a ticket and leave the country without them knowing??


No big deal just something I noticed.  But definitely another good episode.

February 2, 2009 3:28 pm I just now got around to watching this (I'm at work).  And yeah...that was definitely the best episode in a long while.  I am kinda glad I watched it Monday so now there are only 4 days left till the next one!
November 19, 2008 12:05 am Something I noticed after watching this weeks episode.  Papa Patrelli told Sylar that he would be able to absorb people's powers without killing them because he was empathic. 

Remembering back to the first season when Peter was "training" with the Invisible Man Claude...he was able to call upon the powers he absorbed by remembering those people and what he felt like whenever he was around them.  Which...technically is a form of empathy as well. I wonder if this is a coincidence or planned from the start.  Maybe there is no connection...but I found it interesting considering they are brothers.
October 29, 2008 2:49 pm @CatEyedFox - In an episode, I believe it was last season, they talk about how they have gotten a divorce and it even shows Nathan going up to the fence at his kid's school and trying to talk to them and he is told he is not supposed to be there.

@Conor - Yeah I understand that and I am sure there would come a point even for me that if it got so bad I would not watch it anymore.  But what I was saying, more for just me, is that I am not quick to look for those things.  It seems that some people watch a show intentionally looking for holes and flaws.  They proceed to pick it apart to the point where, of course it is not enjoyable. Not that anyone should keep their opinions to themselves because they are obviously free to express those.  But there are things that jump out at me and that I get a little frustrated at.  But I was saying it is more in my nature to let that stuff go, as long as it is not dragging the show down and as long as I have more positive points about it all then negative.  But I try really hard to not get myself to a point where I am so critical that I remove all enjoyment for myself.
