This week, instead of an actual episode reaction, I present conversations between myself, my best friend D (aka likealongforgottendream, but that's too damn much to type right now), and the S half (i.e., the better half) of ESP.
7:45 D: I'm watching baseball. They introduced this guy as the biggest eyebrows in baseball. He has NOTHING on ZQ.
7:48 Me: Way to make the guy feel inadequate! Also Zachary has been having his waxed lately.
7:58 D: Does it look funny?
8:06 Me: No. But if you see pics of him regularly, you can tell he's done it.
8:09 D: Are S and J watching the 2nd season of Heroes?
8:14 Me: Oh yeah. I think they are also getting bored with Maya y Alejandro. And hate Parkman. And continue to not properly appreciate Sylar's Hot Strut of I'm Gonna Brain You With A Brick, Dude.
8:21 D: What is with Maya y Alejandro with Sylar in the car? Also, even tho Mohinder of the lovely hair and accent is first, I appreciate the hotness that is Sylar.
8:31 Me: You will have to be more specific about what they were doing in the car.
8:46 D: She's just sitting there simpering while Sylar gets that psycho look back in his eyes. Maya y Alejandro are boring enough, but w/Sylar being Sylar? They don't notice?
9:04 D: Maya y Alejandro also bother me cause when they translate the Spanish it isn't always right.
9:26 Me: Yes, Maya is clearly delusional. Al at least is smart enough to be suspicious. Unfortunately they're talking about Maya "having a romance"...
9:29 D: Yeah. With Alejandro. They are an affectionate people.
9:33 Me: Maybe they're actually "Italian". And that's why the translations aren't right. If they try to redeem Sylar with "the love of a good woman" I will puke.
9:37 D: Uh, yeah. And if she comes anywhere near Mohinder, I might have to kill her. Give her to Ando.
9:42 Me: Ando would be properly terrified of her protective brother too. And when Hiro comes back, he could go on being a fifth wheel!
9:46 D: Exactly!
9:49 D: Better yet? Give Maya to Parkman.
9:54 Me: OMG you are so mean. And also late to the party. I was just discussing with someone online about how she'd make him a good pregnant wife.
10:01 D: I really want to see Mohinder kick Parkman in the junk for hurting Molly.
10:05 Me: No shit. I loved how he was the one who brought up the daddy issues. Even HE knows he's a loser. & then he pulled that BS of "It might help her to face her fears!" HATE.
7:12 Me: ...You should tell her you're going to attend STFU. Heroes in 40 min. I really hope Sylar kills someone. Preferably Maya so I don't have to watch her cry again some more.
7:21 D: That would be a good thing. Or maybe he will blow up the Rogue. I am sick of that fucking thing. Blowing it up with Maya y Alejandro in it would rock.
7:26 Me: And they could play the GNR version of Live and Let Die as it exploded.
7:27 D: That would rule.
7:31 Me: Hopefully Sylar would be wearing that black wifebeater again. That looked much better on him than I was prepared for.
7:42 D: Yeah, he did look good.
8:01 S: HEROES!!!
8:02 Me: I just got pissed at Parkman all over again. I hope he dies.
8:02 D: Me too.
8:28 S: Man, Parkman's dumb!
8:31 Me: Mo's taking Molly to the COMPANY??? Wow. Didn't think he could possibly do something dumber than letting Sylar live last season.
8:33 S: No kidding.
8:33 D: Never said he was smart. Just pretty.
8:39 Me: OMG this episode is both boring and annoying me. The show is about 1000 percent less interesting when Mo's being stupid and Sylar's not killing people.
8:42 S: I really agree. They have to move this thing along. And now, on to the most boring people!
8:54 D: No shit. One less bad Oirish accent for next week, though.
9:03 D: I wasn't paying much attention. But did it look like HRG took a shot at Mo?
9:04 Me: Possibly. I wasn't clear on who it was but I'm assuming he's still in Odessa, though.
9:05 Me: God. That was an hour of my life I will never get back. Sylar had better be in a significant portion of next week's show.
9:09 S: It seems like he might be the only one that could save the show now, frankly.
9:10 Me: At least it looks like Alejandro's got a pair. Though I'm wondering when this show became The Beatin' People Up Hour.
9:11 D: Mmmm. It looks like Sylar will be in next week's episode and he wants to kill alejandro! Yay!
9:21 Me: I kind of like Alejandro though. I am not going to be happy if Sylar & Maya get together and Al is dead.
9:24 D: Al and Maya are too whiny. He did say that when he gets his abilities back he was gonna kill Al. Hopefully he will off Maya. Or pass her on to Parkman. Or Peter. Maya strikes me as emo.
9:26 Me: This is very sad. I'm now watching a documentary about crossword puzzle geeks on PBS and I'm finding it more exciting. WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO MY SHOW?
9:31 S: I don't know. But I would like to write a letter to complain.
9:37 Me: EW ripped this ep a new one in their online review. Now I know why.
9:40 S: Me too!
9:41 Me: Is there any way we can get Isaac Mendez back? I bet he could speak Espanol correctamente. When he wasn't high.
9:43 Me: Did I ever tell you what Isaac's thread at TWoP is called? "Smack To The Future".
9:48 D: Oh God. That shouldn't be funny but it is. Maya y Al speak perfect Spanish. The people that translate the words on bottom of screen need some help.
9:58 Me: Their pronunciation gets to me sometimes because I was taught slightly diff way. Spain as filtered through a teacher from Dayton. Como se dice "tonight's show sucked"?
Wow. I suppose this post could also be titled, "Boring The Fangirls Is Never A Good Idea Because They Will Turn On A Dime And Rend Your Bones For Soup. Kring."
