Verdict: A significant improvement over the season premiere. I'm not sure how much that's saying right now, but at least the plot twists felt coherent this time, rather than like some guy dropping acid.

Short version: Angela yay! (I swear to God, that woman can make any scene shine.) Claire-characterization yay! (Claire plot question mark) Some plot developments could develop interestingly. But most of the episode felt like a hash party.

About on par with season 1 Torchwood. That's not a compliment. There are, however, intriguing bits scattered through. Enough that I'll keep watching, at any rate.

(No, there's no review for the previous episode, since it all came down to 'excellent episode, yay'.)

Another episode I thought was quite good.

Short review of Heroes 2x08:

Another "Six Months Ago" that certainly wasn't. I felt like every actor, except for Adam and Angela took this episode as an excuse to go get drunk the night before, and I'm still bored stupid by the Wonder Twins. Meeeeeeh. Where are all the really interesting characters? Surely they did stuff in the between-season interim.

On the other hand... it's clear the writers are aware of at least one thing. Peter only really works as a character when paired up with a cynic. First Nathan, then Claude, and now Adam. Combined with these characters, he's actually interesting, so here's hoping the pattern follows through.

Excellent episode! The first one I can really say that off in all earnestness. Everyone's nicely morally ambiguous. You gotta love it.

Finally, the season seems to be hitting a groove.

All in all, a much episode than the previous two. Things are looking up!

Two quibbles, though. West is becoming more human, but his and Claire's relationship still feels shallow and rushed to me. Meanwhile, Maya's unbelievable gullibility is rubbing me every wrong way. Having a Latina character in your cast is a good thing. Making her dumb is not.

In conclusion: You evil bastards! Give me more show now!

Which is so the reaction they were going for.
