Claires grandma sure made it sound like she has a power. Im very interested in how her character develops as the series goes on.

I think Isaac's gone. Especially cuz Linder made it sound like there were other future-painting artists.

One question--Who made out what Sylar painted? It looked like Sylar in the Oval office. Who else knows what Im talking about?

I think this series keeps getting more and more interesting.  8)

I actually thought it was the same picture Linderman had...only with less artistic ability then Isaac had. 

I am wondering what Isaac meant by he would show the others how to defeat Sylar before Sylar killed him...unless it was in that final comic he sent out.

Also, in the scenes for next week, there was a picture of Sylar on a news cast.  Did it say he was a hero beneath his name?

I made the final table of a Texas Hold 'Em tournament last night but did not place in the money.

I had pocket kings. I raise four times the big blind. I get one caller. The flop was then Ace, Ace, Ace.

I have the second best possible hand. An "Aces over Kings" full house. The only thing that can beat me is if he has the fourth Ace. Since he had called my previous bet I decide to bet 3 times the big blind to see where I am at. I actually want to bet more but I am sure he is going to re-raise.

Sure enough he re-raises and I call.

The same thing happens on the turn. I bet, he re-raises, and I call.

I bet after the river and he re-raises "all in." He could have almost anything with Ace, Ace, Ace, and two low cards on the board. There is a good chance he also has a full house. I don't know what the odds are of him having the fourth Ace but I know I have the best possible full house. There is also no straight flush possiblilities.

I make the call and he has the Ace. Blah. I am crippled and blinded out shortly thereafter. All of my friends (who were already eliminated and in sour moods) said I played that hand all wrong. I don't know though. I flopped the best possible full house. How do you get away from that?

Well, he re-raised your post flop bet, and you showed some weakness by downgrading your post flop bet from 4x to 3x the big blind.  You fell perfectly into his trap since he reraises you on each street and you kept calling.  Any time that the flop comes out trips, you have to think someone may have the fourth card.  His odds on having the ace?  Better than you think.  Preflop, there are four aces in the deck, so that is 1:13.  However, you are dealt two cards, so his odds increase to 2:13.  The odds the flop comes out the last three aces?  1:4960...that is assuming there are ten players and that none of those players had an ace.  It would leave 32 cards in the deck preflop so the first card is 3:32, second 2:31 and third 1:30...offcourse you can drop the denominators by one if the dealer burns the top card.  Anyways, you should have either gone all in preflop, or stopped leading out betting after he reraised post flop.  By always betting first and then getting reraised and calling it, you were pot commited by the river and had to call.  Laying down a hand like that is tough, but a skill you must acquire to be successful.

Hmm, I'm not too keen on getting yet another X-wing and Snowspeeder.  At least they packed the Snowspeeder with some cool Hoth diorama stuff, but the Luke maquette doesn't really do it for me.  I hope they make the X-Wing specific like they did with Wedge for the last one.

Wow, Ron finally gets rich.

I think this will be a really good book.  I like the little bit of preview that we get to read on the British covers.

I would say definately an April Fool's joke.  Everyone remember the dead Kenobi robe and half a Darth Maul offerings?   The catagory itself could be real, but I don't think the figure is.  I would expect to see a real figure up for preorder shortly after this though.

These look great.  Hopefully, Sideshow will make their versions in the near future and they won't cost as much.

How about that this is one of the most ridiculous topics I've seen on a Star Wars board?  Is it really that important that you find out what she looks like?  Also, you may want to look at the picture on the left and the fact that she has some moles or birthmarks that are not on the woman on the right.

I'm pretty sure Aaron Pierce did not show up in Season 1.  I would have to go back and check, but I don't think we saw him at all.  Besides Jack, I think Tony, Michelle and the first President Palmer were the only ones in all five seasons before this one.  Since they killed all of them off, Jack is the only character in all six seasons, unless you count the pictures on Wayne's desk of his brother.

Sorry boyo, but Aaron Pierce was in Season 1, it's where we were introduced to him!! I remember because he's always played Secret Service type characters in movies, so it was no surprise to see him again as one!! Oh and for reference, since I wasn't sure about seasons 2-3!Aaron Pierce

I must be losing my mind...I haven't watched Season 1 in quite some time so I guess I just forgot about him.

It looks they are opening the ANH floodgates...I'm sure a Han in smugglers outfit can't be too far behind.

So... who is actually ALIVE from season one still?

Here's my count -

Jack Bauer - as we know he's the man, has appeared in all 6 seaons of course.

Milo Pressman - appeared in season 1, and now in season 6 as a replacement to Edgar Stiles.

Aaron Pierce - has appeared in all 6 seasons now.

Kim Bauer - some web forums say that she will appear later in Day 6 but apparently the actress has indicated that she does not appear in this season.

Mike Novik - the actor has not confirmed if he will return in Day 6 but he could still appear, since in the past Mike was typically introduced several episodes into the season.  Maybe Martha will contact him if Charles Logan dies?

 :P

I'm pretty sure Aaron Pierce did not show up in Season 1.  I would have to go back and check, but I don't think we saw him at all.  Besides Jack, I think Tony, Michelle and the first President Palmer were the only ones in all five seasons before this one.  Since they killed all of them off, Jack is the only character in all six seasons, unless you count the pictures on Wayne's desk of his brother.

no, HRG has been shot and wiped and kicked out. maybe a parkman/haitian team? and who was that girl at the end and wut is her power? and why did the preview show simone asking 'do you want to shoot me again?' i bet she has a power. and how is takei involved?

this episode created more questions than it answered.   ???

I wouldn't say HRG has been kicked out.  When he was talking with his boss, his boss was acquising the Haitian of hiding people with power and he told HRG to bring in Claire and he said he would go get her.  He thus staged the shooting with the Haitian so that he could stay on the inside and tell his people that the Haitian attacked him and abducted Claire.  His boss also told HRG wouldn't it be nice to have a partner like Parkman.  That is my take on the scene anyways.

I thought it was a great episode too, but was wondering about the radiation thing.  I am wondering who this "boss" of HRG is.  I am also wondering how Parkman didn't sense him when he came in the house and shot radiation man.  Did invisible man actually go over the edge of the bridge, or did he fake it?  He had already taken to bullets to the chest.  Lastly, it looks like Parkman is going to replace the Haitian as HRG's partner, I just wonder how much of HRG's memory has been erased.

I have probably eaten more McDonalds in my life than I probably should have, but I too have yet to try a Shamrock shake.  I always get the chocolate shake.  Maybe I'll have to give it a try this March.
