Heroes Reborn: Final Episode Recap and Series Review

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

The final episode of Heroes Reborn has aired, and with that comes my final post discussing the show. For this post, I just want to discuss the big plot points that moved the story forward and brought the season series to a close. Luckily, there wasn’t much wasted time in this episode. A lot of the focus was on the twins, Nathan and Malina, and their mission to save the world. I will also do a review of the series as a whole, but I have a lot more to say on the topic than I wish to write in a single blog post. So, I will condense my thoughts as much as I can. Let’s see how the season series closed, and how I felt about it.

YouTube: A Plea For Better Playback Options

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

On this blog, I have typically discussed the design of videos games and game features. Today, I am going to be discussing something a little different. This particular discussion is still going to be focused on design, but it shan’t be related to video games. Instead, I will be discussing the design of a free service that millions of people use on a regular basis. The service in question is Google’s video sharing service known as YouTube.

Heroes Reborn: “Company Woman” Recap and Commentary

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

As the first solar flare makes it way to the Earth, the heroes need to make some hard decisions before the world ends. The message that Micah Sanders broadcast across the world in the previous episode had little effect on the events of this episode. However, we do learn a dark secret from the show’s primary antagonist that likely sparked the chain of events that led to her becoming the head of Renautus. We also see two other antagonists be taken off the board by their own hand. With the season series finale airing tomorrow, let’s review a few moments in last week’s episode.

Heroes Reborn: “Send in the Clones” Recap and Commentary

Merry Year of Newness, ladies and gentlemen!

After a brief hiatus, the first of the remaining three episodes of Heroes Reborn has aired. I only have three more opportunities to discuss this series, because the end if fast approaching. When we last left our heroes (tee hee), shit was about to hit the fan at Sunstone Manor, Nathan and Miko appear to ditch the future and leave Erica behind, HRG vanishes before being smashed by a flying car, and Malina escapes the clutches of stupid and dangerous humans, likely Trump supporters, with the help of Luke. There isn’t much time left before the twins, Nathan and Malina, have to work together to save the world from impending doom. Let’s review a couple moments from the episode in this recap and commentary.

Heroes Reborn: “11:53 to Odessa” Recap and Commentary

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Last week marked the 10th episode of Heroes Reborn to air over the course of nine weeks. Additionally, last week’s episode was also dubbed the “Fall Finale”, which means the remaining three episodes will be held back until next year. January 7th, according to this wiki list of episodes. So, this will be the last Recap and Commentary from me until the show picks back up next year. I know! You’re so sad.

As always, I will recap moments from the show and provide some commentary regarding what occurred. Let us begin!

Heroes Reborn: “Sundae, Bloody Sundae” Recap and Commentary

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Last week’s episode, “Sundae, Bloody Sundae,” was an interesting ride. I’m not too excited with the current state of the Heroes Reborn world. I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy myself with last week’s episode, but the situation is not looking too good for our heroes (tee hee). There was also a heavy focus on one character whose presence has had little to no effect on the series all season. However, there was the reemergence of an awesome character that I thought was dead. So, a bit of a give and take there. For today, I shall recount what happened and provide some commentary.

Heroes Reborn: “June 13th – Part Two” Recap and Commentary

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Last week’s episode, “June 13th – Part Two”, was an AMAZING episode filled to the brim with answers to so many questions, and, of course, a slew of new questions. After the end of Part One, I was super hyped to find out what was going to happen in Part Two. I was not disappointed. Even the prediction I made in last week’s post came true. Granted, my prediction was really awful, but it came true nonetheless. For today’s post, I will cover the big stuff that happened in this episode.

Heroes Reborn: “June 13th – Part One” Recap and Commentary

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Last week, we were treated to a look into the past as the events of June 13th unfolded before our eyes. We followed HRG and Hiro on their mission to put a stop to the plans set forth by Erica and Renautus. Several characters from the original series, who have been missing in action in Heroes Reborn, made appearances in last week’s episode. A huge discovery was made during this episode that explains why Tommy (Nathan) and Malina are so important. However, as the title suggests, this is only the first part of the story and, unfortunately, this episode was left on a HUGE cliffhanger. So, for today’s post, I shall discuss during the first part of “June 13th”.

SPOILER WARNING!!
