Chapter 29 – the rant

1 10 2008

The description of Knox-Ardsley was based on the way the local grammar school pupils talk about the people from the nearby comprehensive.  Of course, Clouds’ school (Alexandra Lane) is a comprehensive, but Knox-Ardsley is from a rougher area.

The name “Tree Top Town” is an allusion to a certain classic video game, but it’s a pretty obscure reference.

Episode 1 has confused me no end, but the writer says it’s all going to make sense in the end, and I think I believe him. I was interested to note that they’ve paid attention to some of the criticisms that were levelled at the second series, and the new series promises more action, a supposedly more cohesive plot, more Sylar, more Ando and Hiro, and has ended the “what does he do with the brains?” debate once and for all. Not sure how I feel about the injection business, but I think it’s OK so long as they don’t give HRG powers.

It’s only called that because it sounds vaguely threatening and facilitates a lame pun. Just say “Hard Knocks” if it’s easier.😉

Ah, so you’re a Peter fan then?🙂 I like Claire too, but Ando is the coolest!
