Nice knowing you, Usutu.

Gah. This show just HATES people of colour.

And now they're having Arthur Petrelli threatening to take Hiro's powers away as a cliffhanger.

And, yay! Here's to another white guy mind-raping his wife!

I have to admit, I didn't even think about the anti-POC bent of this show until a couple of weeks ago when I was referred to this community. But then I read through here, and THEN I rewatched the season with my mom (a first-time watcher), and...


I am just so fucking appalled by tonight's episode. In so many ways.

:(

only genre-action show I know of where being a white man dramatically increases a character's chance for dying in a plot-related incident

Yeah, although there were lots of bystander casualties in this week's episode. Which I just watched, after Heroes, because that way the good comes after the bad and the bad doesn't spoil the aftertaste of the good. (Though there's still the cracktastic Prison Break to go, but that might wait until tomorrow.) Smart people! Subtle storytelling techniques! Consequences!

Good point about Arthur already having Hiro's power via Peter. Which might be how he got there in order to threaten Hiro at all.

He's repeatedly said that he can't have characters who know the future around. That makes depowering Hiro a must.

Beautiful black woman11

You know, I've barely seen any of this season's episodes. And now I have a good reason to give up on this series altogether :(

Heroes/ Mo'hotass

Usutu? :( He and that turtle were the only things I liked about season 3. But I stopped watching; who's mind-raping now? (And can we PLEASE have some consequences for it this time??)

indeed

Apparently the only way for a black male to survive on this show is to not have a name. I think our Bob is on to something.
