Noah Bennett remembers his life in black and white (and with helpful chyron to remind him what was "five weeks ago", etc.)
I'm as avid a Heroes hater as anyone I know, but in my opinion, the Fugitive story arc has been a considerable improvement from the first half of the season. Certainly far better than season 2. This show is still not *good* by any way I define a TV show as good, but I'm at least finding it watchable and not infuriating, if still dumb.
The episode wasn't bad, really (although the Parkman/Peter/Mohinder power trio of incompetence is starting to get on my nerves), but I'm not entirely certain what the point was, exactly. I mean, is there anyone out there who didn't already think that Bennett was playing some sort of long game against Nathan's new system? I guess that now we know Angela's also working against them, which is a little bit more unexpected.

The Parkman-Mohinder idiot shouting matches were hilarious and a little bit gay, what with Mohinder mounting Parkman after their slappyfest bitch fight.
I cracked up at the stupid round-and-round.
Mohinder: "Hurting Bennett won't bring Daphne back!" Parkman: "This isn't about Daphne!" Mohinder: "What you're doing is wrong! What would Daphne say if she saw this?" Parkman: "I told you, this isn't about Daphne! Wait. Bennett's memory -- He came to you. You knew! WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?!?! RRRAARGHH!! ANGRY MATT PARKMAN!!" (Mohinder somehow throws Parkman into a mirror and mounts him) Mohinder: "Yes, I knew. But getting angry at me won't bring Daphne back." Parkman: "THIS ISN'T ABOUT DAPHNE!!" Mohinder: "DAPHNE DAPHNE DAPHNE!"
Also, Parkman continues to be in idiot. When Bennett escaped to the parking lot, why didn't Parkman just use his telepathy to locate him? How hard would it have been to sense the thoughts of a man desperately looking for an escape?
Furthermore, Peter is an asshole. When Bennett was hotwiring a car, Peter smashed the windshield when he landed on the hood. That's someone's car, you dick. Someone is gonna wake up in the morning and find their windshield smashed. Some Hero.

That didn't occur to me last night, but you're right and it is HILARIOUS.
I actually like the fact that all the Heroes are pretty clueless on what to do against the feds, because it is more realistic. I actually get annoyed with stories where the hero or heroes somehow manage to fight back the evil government with a single struck. They are plotting it out well. I wouldn't disagree on the acting stand point, but when it comes to evade a government that is trying to monitor your every move then nine times out of ten you are going to get caught or lose a bunch of fight. Peter's rebellion is like all rebellions where they going blindly into the night, they just to need to really regroup and come up with a different strategy. What that is I don't know. On the whole, I am really enjoying this season.
I like Capaldi, but he's really gotten into a very unenviable position right here. The role is clearly still being written with Matt Smith in mind, so doing something different with the material is visibly challenging.
