Mr. Linderman

(please log in to view the image)


Did anyone else like the character of Mr. Linderman as much as I did? I gotta say, I love that type of villain. There's this huge buildup towards the reveal of who he really is, and then once we meet him, he has such a huge presence in the show. You know he's a man of great power, but he's very conversational, friendly, and charming.

Discuss.

Yea it totally blows that they killed him off. I gotta say that was one I never saw coming. Well never would've expected it anyway. He's such an awesome actor too. I remember when they finally showed who he was I was like HELLSYEA!

But yea I hate that they killed him off so soon. I think he would've really added to the show the longer that he stayed around.

Plus of course I'd liked for Peter to have met him. big grin

Go to the Peter Petrelli thread, I have a post regarding your quotes.

However, this thread should stick to the topic at hand...Mr. Linderman.

I was so surprised when he was finally revealed and it was the dude from A Clockwork Orange, it tickled my mind. stick out tongue

I love Malcolm MacDowell. He's such an interesting actor.

Of course, the years and the drugs haven't been kind to him. He's not a pretty face, but it's all about presence. His voice alone grabs attention easily.

The smallest of powers often times turn out to be the most crucial. Haven't you ever seen Sky High?

I'm rather glad that the manipulative man with mafia connections didn't turn out to be an evil super villian because he could fry people with heat vision or something. His power is appropriate and better suited for this show.

If you think about it, it actually fits the character very well.

He decides who lives and dies! Literally!

Extraordinarily underused. It's perhaps Heroes' biggest blunder. That MacDowell was only featured in a handful of episodes is terrible enough, but the way he died magnified it.

An evil ubervillain -- manipulative and behind-the-scenes -- reaching for a gun? When he has six gajillion guards outside the door? Against two youthful opponents (one of whom can phase and the other possessed of superhuman strength)? Not only is that blatantly out of character, but it's impractical. Gimme a ****ing break.

Writers' fiat on an ungodly level.

Too true. Linderman should have called in the guards and forced Niki and D.L. to try fighting through them before they could get him, first.

I doubt they would have trouble fighting through the guards...

But im sure if linderman did call, they would have killed him... he wanted to get jessica back on his side and sort it out himself..

what i want to know is why DL couldnt have grabbed jessica/nikki and phased through the bullet that he shot at them

Because he was shot in less than a fraction of a second and his power probably requires conscious activation.

Indeed, probably not enough time to get the phasing going.

When he phased through Jessica's sniper bullet in an earlier episode, he knew he was being shot at and had already been hit. He knew it was coming, so phased through it.

In any case, I loved how Linderman first appeared on screen.

"Now you can't have any of my chicken pot pie..."

...I'm pretty sure he didn't phase through her to get in front of her. I think that would have killed her. He just threw himself in front.

However, while he may be able to activate his power relatively quickly, exerting it onto another person may not have been as quick.
