Sylar S2 promo pic

So likealongforgottendream is working her way through the Heroes S1 DVDs I bought her.  Last night, she watched episodes 8, 9 and 10.  Here are some of the text messages she sent me while watching (since most of the people reading this are from the Heroes fandom, I'm guessing you won't need an explanation of what points she was at when she sent them):

"This show is totally addicting."

"....mmmm Mohinder."  (Actually, I've gotten that text about 8 times over the last few days)

"I wonder what made them think the thought hearing pig would be popular.  He's annoying."

"What's the deal with Claire's dad?  I already didn't like him.  He's an asshole.  Nice fake parents he hired."

"Wow.  He is a cute geek."

"That really has to suck, waiting for someone to come along and say you're special and then be like 'Whoops sorry'.  I'd go postal too."

(after I asked if she'd also watched ep 11, Fallout, which she is totally unspoiled for)  "No that is first on the menu for tonight.  I hope he eats that bitch Eden's brains.  I don't like her either."

I have now decided that, in light of my complete and utter failure, I will be forced to live vicariously through your successes! ::celebrates:: We win!

Also, after battling a mild case of the Mohinders, I figured out what was going on with "I wonder what made them think the thought hearing pig would be popular. He's annoying." and declare this some sort of Heroes Universal Truth or something. (I literally thought "I don't remember a pig on the show!" Oink, oink, curly tail and all that. A literal pig. Perhaps I have shared too much.)

Poor Parkman. Wait a minute...what am I saying???

I kind of snorted water up my nose when she said "I hope he eats Eden's brains". She's going to freak when she sees that scene. And then after she freaks, I'm betting she'll say "Wait a minute...why was Sylar immune to her voice?" and I'll get to have THAT discussion all over again. :0)

Yeah, I somehow skipped the word "thought" and went The hearing pig? Is that like a seeing-eye dog? Whaaaat? for a few seconds.

"Pig" as slang for "cop" is one of those things that I've only ever seen/heard from, like, fictional 70s counterculture types.

My mom is just meh on Mohinder, but I really enjoyed watching her boo and hiss HRG when she didn't know about his ultimate turnaround.

I actually somehow overlooked both "thought" and "hearing" when I first got the text from her, and was just as confused at first. Then I got to giggling. Parkman is just my least favorite character.

It's been very interesting to introduce several friends to the show and watch how their favorites change as they plow through the DVDs.

Ooohhhh, pig as in "cop". Obviously my case of the Mohinders was not as mild as originally diagnosed. Perhaps I should just go to bed and try again tomorrow. I place all blame for this on the fact that I speaking of Parkman and failed to mention that he was indeed shot by his own bullets.

Yeah--she'd seen Sylar but I don't think she believed me when I told her that seeing Gabriel would break her heart.

I think you mean "dammit dammit lol lol" don't you? :P

I've had people say that but I almost felt like he wasn't really even listening to her. (Though I suppose that would be an explanation in and of itself.) Damn--I need my DVDs back so I can check this out!!! But if I remember correctly, she gives him that command and he says "You knew, didn't you?" which is a continuation of what he was saying to her before she spoke. Like he doesn't react to her at all.

seriously, though. Am I the only one who noticed that???

Um...NO. In fact I have a hard time not giggling when watching the pilot.

And you know, the reason why I simply cannot hate Sylar is because of sweet little Gabriel. I'm still angry with Mohinder for not LISTENING to what he was saying on that phone call and helping him. Poor baby. No, I did not just say that about a fictional serial killer.

"I wonder what made them think the thought hearing pig would be popular. He's annoying."

Ha ha! My best friend has seen exactly the same eps as yours. I think we're going to watch a few more on Sunday (we've been watching them together). She loooves Parkman. Though...really only because she was already a Grunny fan, so we'll see how that goes when he gets shot with his own bullets. She hasn't really said much about Gabriel/Sylar, but she knows about my obsession (my friend Mikey called it a "hobby")... I think she has an aversion to the eyebrows.

"A hobby". Yeah. I like the sound of that. And yes, there are some sick, twisted people out there who are not able to appreciate the Eyebrows. There's so much evil in the world...and in striped tank tops.

Look! I am commenting everywhere. I just wanted to add that my hatred for Parkman is so all-consuming, and I had never seen Grunberg in anything else, so now I am forced to dislike him as well. That's right, my disdain for a fictional character has lead me to dislike the man who plays him. Also, I find is over-the-top real-life goofiness annoying.

Dammit, I am going to HAVE to start making these t-shirts.

Aww, I love Grunny. I used to be a huge Alias fan, so that could play into it, but still.
