Punch In The Face Index: Season Finale

Voting seems to have about come to a close, so let’s see what we have.

First off, I totaled up our punches throughout the course of the season — five points to the person on top, four to the #2 slot, etc., etc. Mohinder and Matt each got 4.5 points the week they were tied. The sibs each got 2 points once. Our top eight looks like this:

West (26)
Mohinder (21.5)
Bob (16)
Maya (14)
Elle (11)
Matt (10.5)
Adam (10)
Angela (10)

There’s a huge dropoff after that, so I won’t bother with anyone else. We had a lot of West and Bob hating early on; West redeemed himself a fair bit over the course of the season, and Bob became a much more interesting character. If I were doing my own season-long list, Bob would certainly drop off it.

You guys have the following top five, with a tie in the last slot:

Maya (18)
Mohinder (12)
West (8)
Peter (7)
Elle (6)
Matt (6)

Awfully similar, except no Bob hate. And we dislike West a ton more than you do. CREEPY STALKER DUDE. Oh, and Peter pretty clearly did himself no favors by hanging out with insipid Irish gangsters for half the season followed by a nice stint as Adam’s pet. But man… he was too boring to punch in the face.

Tune in next year when we do the same sort of thing!

Punch In The Face Index: S2E11

This is the eleventh and most likely the last PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face didn’t actually happen this episode.

Face-punch count: 0. Lotta powers, though.

Not your usual PITF Index after the cut.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E10

This is the tenth PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face will last as long as someone’s writing the screenplay.

Face-punch count: 1. It might have been more but you know, it’s not like Monica’s powers could actually help her in a fight or anything. If only she’d seen some old martial arts footage… oh wait.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E9

This is the ninth PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face is the raison d’etre, full stop.

Face-punch count: 0. Apparently we’ve escalated to more serious forms of facial violence.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E8

This is the eight PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face is not always successful.

Face-punch count: 1, plus an attempted face-punch. Can’t punch what you literally can’t hit.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E7

This is the seventh PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face is what it’s all about.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E6

This is the sixth PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face is normative behavior.

Tim Kring: “I’m so sorry.”

I paraphrase his remarks on Heroes. What he actually said was “romance isn’t a natural fit for us,” and “We took too long to get to the big-picture story,” and “We made a mistake.” I.e.: the Claire storyline sucked, and the meandering around sucked, and season 2 in general has not been good.

This is true. I noted a while back that the problem with season 2 was that it’s very much like season 1. That worked for season 1, because they were introducing the world and building our relationships with the characters. But now we have relationships, and we are unhappy to see them neglected while yet more characters are introduced.

There appears, however, to be hope.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E5

This is the fifth PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where punching people in the face is a way to say howdy.

Face-punch count: lots. There was a fight and we lost count.

PITF Index — Delays

I know, I know. There was hot food last night and and and the writing sucks so it’s not compelling, there, I said it.

We’ll catch up on Friday and Saturday. Promise.
