A Flaw Spotted On The Final Episode

Its 12:45AM in the midnight, and i've just completed watching my all time favourite series Heroes. Its the last episode of season 3, or to some its known as volume 4. This last episode, entitled An Invisible Thread.

However towards the end of the 41 minutes episode, i just happened to stumble upon this little flaw. Now ladies and gentlemen, to all of the fans out there, did you saw it? Please do not attempt to read any further as it might just spoil your perspective towards the series.

In 39:34 minutes of An Invisible Thread, it shows that Nathan Petrelli (or rather Sylar) was reading the local papers and he saw the headline, "Forth Mysterious Drowning Baffles Authorities". Since i was too curious for my own good, i replay that particular scene and zoom in, just to see what was written in that column...

identical repeated paragraphs in the newspaper

Curiosity kills the cat. I guess they were too hectic in trying to film the final episode, so they got it done hoping we didnt notice it. It might be something like brain-tricking, cause we usually focus more on the title instead of the details. Thus with the short duration of a second or two on that scene, they got their sweet escape by not writing something which are more logical.

So much for AN INVISIBLE THREAD. But still, i enjoy watching Heroes and im very anticipated for the new season... Redemption!

Hmm... and here I thought the flaw was them not using Claire's blood to bring Nathan back (even though they used it in Season 2 to bring HRG (yeah I know his name's Noah, but HRG sounds cooler :D) back.

lol... nice spot. Usually they film it this way, no big deal ;)


Try to go watch "The Soloist" trailer and see if you could spot an obvious spot? Can you imagine you can spot a flaw in a trailer before the movie is aired? Tell me once you spot it :P

ShinYin: LOL. I'll go for the first one, observant. ^^

i think some dodgy repeating paragraphs is the least of that eps problems.

Dann said...

Kferin: Yup, you got it correct!

And it is not just for that article that paragraphs are repeated. It for all other articles around this one...:)

The repetition isn't a problem because the article itself makes no sense. It's basically a souped-up English of "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet"... i.e.: not meant to be read at all!

Umm, lots of shows do this. All the time. I've also seen the same main story on the newspaper Kaito was reading at the beginning of Season 2 and a newspaper in Prison Break (when Mahone is going to the hospital to see his son in Season 2). Something like 'Senate approves $200 billion highway fund'. I have a screenshot.. :)

I think "zoomed in" is the problem, relax a little!
