You Gotta Like Sylar on Heroes Now

He's the least conflicted, most effective hero by far ... Sylar has escaped from the government's goons at least twice now. And, despite what he says, he's taking good care of the kid he picked up last week. I know Sylar's capable of doing something awful any time, but so far in 2009 I'm finding his character commendable.

HRG, on the other hand, is the epitome of conflicted. I was glad to see Matt and company at least turn the tables on him. I have a feeling we may be in for a surprise - let's say it turns out that HRG has some powers of his own, after all...

Oh yeah - this is Heroes 3.16 I'm talking about.

It also had a good scene with photos of all the heroes up on a police suspect board. Nathan is pretty despicable, but he's bound to come through and see the light and stop Danko. Until that happens, though, even torture is permitted. Heroes is indeed moving into 24 territory (though, actually, at this point in 24, more people are against torture than are endorsing it).

Good to see Ando and his power - but I'm beginning to miss Hiro's time travel. It's also one of the few things that Sylar can't do...
