TV Geek Out 38: Heroes, "The Eclipse, Part 1"

The first half of Heroes' two-episode chapter "The Eclipse" left the TV Geek Out Geeks surprisingly sleepy -- maybe it was the lack of sunlight? Or maybe it was watching every single character encounter the eclipse and their subsequent lack of powers without putting two and two together. At any rate, Sylar and Elle continue their Bonnie and Clyde romance, HRG greatly overestimates Claire's ability to heal during the eclipse, and Mohinder gets his pretty back temporarily (via a pretty gross cocoon-busting scene complete with bloody afterbirth). How the heroes adapted -- or didn't adapt -- to their technical difficulties led to a frustrated, even emotional discussion. Listen, and you'll know what it's like to cry the tears of absurdity.

Check it out here.

Correction: David Anders' character on Alias was named Sark, not Sylar! Dana apologizes for misspeaking, in all her riled-up frustration with Heroes.
