Peter Petrelli- Because He's Worth It

"Heroes" - dontcha just LOVE it?? At last, something to set the TiVo for on a Saturday night. Beautiful people with small bottoms, shiny hair and SUPERpowers battling the - equally attractive - forces of evil. An epic struggle packaged in 45-minute chunks, who could ask for anything more? I don't care that I don't really understand the Nikki/Jessica thing (I can never tell which one's which). Or that Claire, the cheerleader, looks about 30. Even the bits in Japanese don't get on my nerves (true!!). There's just ONE thing that spoils it for me: Peter Petrelli's hair. It's just a little too artful, a tad too "product"-heavy, dontcha think? I've become obsessed with it. When he's on screen, I can look at nothing else. I judge entire episodes on whether Peter's having a bad hair day or not. Am I alone in this? Help me people!! (Obviously, I love him and this is just a cunning ruse to stick a big fat photo in a place where I can gaze at it all day). P.S. OMG, I am informed by my VOX buddy Felipe that even better things are on the way.

TinFoiled - you're right!! He definitely has a touch of the Corny Collins about him... I wimped out of putting your Petrelli brothers "test" in there... Wendy, Good to see you here but I'm sorry to tell you I have it on very good authority that Peter does NOT like chickens so he's moving in with me instead. Blame the ark. :-)

Starman said...

I have seen all the first season episodes and love it. If you are so inclined, you can see a lot of inside stuff here: http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/video/#
Enjoy!

Ooops. Never mind!

Tin Foiled said...

I can't take the credit for devising the soon-to-be famous (and oh-so-mysterious) Petrelli "personality" test. I'll let the true author speak up...

rhino75 said...

Samantha, yes, not real TiVo, of course - that would be too good - but my crappy digital TV thing that records it every week. But who IS your favourite character then? Starman, we're getting towards the end of Season One here in France...I still haven't seen it in English though...TinFoiled, you didn't tell me who came up with the test...he or she should stand up and be counted!!

I love Peter but his hair is something I obsessed about too while I watched Heroes. I watched how it fell in his face and how he'd push it behind his ears. At times it was too perfect. But I still love Peter. He is my favorite character. Well, after Hiro that is... :)

i remember him when he was on gilmore girls! he was the badboy cuteness that goodgirl rory couldn't resist. DUH. i wish someone like him would move into the studio next door to mine...which is currently inhabited by a crazy french sculptor recluse.

Adelyn, is it a crazy French sculptor with annoying hair, though?
