Holy shit  
That was the best 42 minutes of television ever.

EDIT: Major spoiler warning for the comments.

It's fucking transcendent.

Now don't get me wrong...but I didn't like it that much...in fact it was mostly a Meh..if you want me to justify I will.

to be fair, it's the style of episode that I really love and many people would like not so much.

Alternate universe/alternate history episodes of TV shows have long been some of my favourites. If you watched Buffy, a good example would be the episode 'The Wish' which shows what world would be like if Buffy had never moved to Sunnydale. I love this kind of show, especially when it's dark, and shows the deaths of some of the major characters.

So, yeah, this episode delivered on that. It was dark, full of death, and showed the bleakness that will follow if our heroes fail. Which only adds to the tension of the last couple of episodes of the season, because it really proves that it isn't just about saving a couple of million lives in New York, it really is about saving the world.

Anyway, I'm interested to know why you didn't like it.

Wait..are we talking about 0.07% or String Theory?

Heh. I guess I just totally threw a huge bunch of spoilers at you.

Sorry, but I can't help but feel it wasn't really my fault, since 0.07% came out, hmm, about a week ago.

Ah no problem, it's not my fault that Sharevirus is being totally crap with updates in the last few weeks. But whilst the spoiler alert is up I might as well make use of it, was it me or was Lindermans plan to allow the distruction of New York for the greater good just a little bit to Watchmen?
Jacobyak_boy on May 1st, 2007 01:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah. I thought last weeks ep was a little flat.
I like Linderman, though, but that could be my natural predisposition towards Malcolm McDowell.

Dang, here I was thinking you found VR porn or something.
Jacobyak_boy on May 1st, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
I just had the weirdest thought of someone discovering VR porn and exclaiming: "My God! It's full of tits!"

I'm a sick boy.

Holy crap that was good. Never saw the Petrelli / Sylar thing coming.
