S01E17 - Company Man

Official Sypnosis

Episode Preview



I want my first thread on this subforum to be about this episode

I consider "Company Man" to be the best and finest episode Heroes had in it's first season.

not only was it masterfully written, but the acting match the quality of the story.

A lot of information was given out in this episode, but unlike other episodes, such info was relevant to the overall story of Heroes as a whole, not only pertinent to season 1 story arc. (not to mention that none of it was boring/irrelevant and never felt like a simple hole filler)

It shed a new light on one of the best characters in the Series: Noah Bennet (HRG), whom first was thought of as a baddie.

It completely changed Claire's life, it introduce yet another devious character (Mr Thompson), albeit of explaining many other things (who's Bennet, what's the company, where Claire came from, how she ended up with HRG, Kaito's involvement with the company....and a very young Hiro big grin ) and had the greatest climax in the whole series (Teddy about to explode, Claire saving everyone, and the best FX Heroes had to offer) ...if only the season finale were as great as this episode was (I mean action/FX wise)


So, what do you think about this episode?:

This is up there in the best episodes of the season, if not the best. There was so much going on, yet it was easy to follow.

Fully agreed. It was full of awesome, as Mr. Bennet is one of the best characters on the show. I hope more of him is seen next season.

If not for this episode, I would not have flinched when he was shot by Parkman in "Five Years Gone." But I did flinch and thought "Bastard!"

Yeah, Parkman in Five Years Gone freaked me out.

What I think is that they should have more episodes that are written like this and up the antiy with the acting. Now don't get me wrong, this show rocks granma chairs but if they had more episodes whose plot lines were written like this, there would be a whole hell of a lot more people watching Heroes smile

I know episodes like this can still be made... I mean, they have to...
it's still early to do an ep in this season (for those who complain about it)... but we certainly need episodes like this one again
