"I accidentally set my grandmothers house on feu when I was 6. Caused a blackout in 4 counties in Ohio when I was 8. I spent my 9th birthday in a glass room with an IV of Lithium in my arm. I've lived in this building for 16 years, ever since the shrinks diagnosed me as a sociopath with paranoid delusions, but they were just out to get me because I threatened to kill them. I'm 24 years old and I have never gone on a date, never been on a rollercoaster,...

So gruesome toi sometimes can't look, so real toi double-take, and so essential to the quality of the montrer that it wouldn't be what it is without them. The make-up effects used in Heroes are in a whole league of thier own. From graphic autopsy thrillers to extremely nasty burns, so much of what toi see is real-life make-up and prosthetic effects. Heading the team that break bones, mangle hands and scar faces is the shows make-up producer and designer, GLENN HETRICK. He was plus than happy to talk to the Heroes magazine and reveal some tricks of the trade...

I enjoy watching Heroes. I truly do. It's a great montrer to watch and every week I tune in. But from the very beginning of season one, I had issues with Heroes and its very obvious character parallels to X-Men. Sure there are those basic powers one must hit for entertainment purposes: flying, instant healing, lire minds. But just for my sake of drawing the character parallels because this stuff interests me, here are some of the instant X-Men/Heroes connections (nine-tenths of my X-Men knowledge is based on the films -- so I apologize if I managle comic book lore.)

 Nissan Versa. Nissan Versa.
Nissan Versa. Nissan Versa.
Tim Kring is a genius. Masi Oka is a rockstar. Ali Larter and Hayden Panittiere are smoking hot. NBC's new montrer Heroes is the talk of the town and for good reason. But there's one very big and painful problem with the montrer that could only get worse with its popularity...selling out to big corporate ad dollars.

Never before have I seen such blatant product placement in a télévision montrer until the jour I saw the pilot episode. Every time I see that Nissan Versa ou the mention of it on the montrer makes me cringe. The pomme iPod video was a little less blatant, but irritating nonetheless. Product placement...

This episode was dircted par first time Heroes director, houx Dale!

Holly’s credits:

I’m going to keep this one short. An cold took me down over the American Thanksgiving holiday and I'm prepping to direct Episode 19 so I have limited my time.

Only one ou two notes:

The guys at Optic Nerve created a really cool appliance for Zach Quinto for the moment when Jack Coleman slits his throat. We shot film of Jack really cutting this appliance which gushed blood. It was freaky. But in post-production we found it plus powerful to have Jack do the slice off-stage in a close up and then cut wide for...

Well, I thought I'd write a little tribute to Matt Parkman since he is my favori hero. He probably isn't alot of people's favorite. Sure, most Heroes viewers like him well enough, but he doesn't stand out to them. Parkman doesn't get the fan support of Peter ou Claire ou even Sylar. So I thought I'd write a little something on WHY he is my favorite, and why he deserves plus respect.

What makes Matt Parkman my hero..

1. Unlike the others, he was already trying to save the world (in his own small way) before he ever got his powers. He was a cop. Sure, his lire disability kept him from being...

Heroes is a dramatic montrer that has many common themes, such as sexuality and violence. A theme that runs between those two is that of rape and other sexual assault/violence elements. Some of Heroes’ sexual predators have been used to bring sex appeal to the show, engaging the viewers while simultaneously repelling them, while others are meant simply to disgust and terrify. Characters Brody, Doyle, Sylar, Flint, and even Elle to some extent have threatened our protagonists with sexual violence.

Despite having no powers of which to speak, Brody is perhaps the most disturbing. He doesn’t start...

This weeks episode titled "I Am Become Death" is set 4 years into the future. First, Matt Parkman is induced par a substance to see the future, so we end up in the future via Matt Parkman. Then, picking up from last weeks ending, future Peter Petrelli arrives in the future with Peter Petrelli from the present. We end up in the future through multiple angles and I'll definitely have to watch this again to get a better grasp on this.

Upon arriving in the future Peter Petrelli from this future is shot down and killed par Claire Bennet leaving Peter Petrelli from our time to fend for himself. He escapes...

 First Scene I saw
First Scene I saw
My parents were telling me about a montrer called Heroes and that it was meant to be brilliant but i didn't listen and i didn't watch it when it first aired on wednesday on BBC2, anywhoo it was the following Sunday night and nothing was on so i flipping the channels and ended up catching a scene of Heroes - the first Claire scene. I watched the rest of that episode (1x01) and the suivant episode was straight after it so i watched that too.

So every week we'd sit down and watch Heroes, twas like family time.

I could not find any other way to get all this interview down other than put it into a soapbox article...

Q: Is everyone coming back for Season Two?

Kring: Well, I don’t want to spoil that for the fans. Clearly we left things up in the air with several of the characters and we want to make sure that the fans don’t know what’s going to happen so that it doesn’t spoil their [enjoyment].

Q: toi a dit 24 episodes. Does that mean no one really died?

Kring: Again, toi really just have to wait.

Q: But you’re keeping them available so toi can bring them back?

Kring: Exactly, they’re all on retainer...

Most récent mises à jour made on 7 December 2007.

This is an expansion of the forum thread, link, listing all the significant characters on the montrer and a brief description of what we know about them as of the most récent episode. This means that this is chock-full of spoilers, and should not be read par anyone who hasn't seen all the episodes ou doesn't want to find out about character developments outside of the pacing of the montrer itself.

OK, with that caveat, here's the list, divided into three sections: characters with powers, characters without powers, and deceased characters. I've included only...

1=Best 10=Worst
By best i am looking for the most useful power and worst i am looking for, obviously, the opposite the useless.
Best
1Peter-absorbs the powers that the other Heroes he has met Who wouldn't want to fly,be invisible, time travel and the best part is he can never die. (unless glass is in your head)

2Sylar-knows how things work and steals powers he would be tied for the most useful powers, if he didn't eat brians (i know strange isn't it?), but still has many plus powers than Peter does, like melting metal ou superhearing.

3Claire-Instant healing
although this would be annoying considering...

I'm posting this as a soapbox article because I'm unable to add this as a link (for some reason).

link for the original text at TV Guide.

Here's the article reprinted:

Jack Coleman, Heroes: What's Going On Behind the Glasses?
by Ileane Rudolph

How does a mild-mannered Dynastie vet come to be one of current pop culture's most enigmatic TV characters? What lured Jack Coleman to the role of Heroes' Mr. Bennett, aka Horn-rimmed Glasses/H.R.G.? And, for once and for all, what are this protective patriarch's ultimate intentions? TV Guide hit the actor with those hot topics and more.

TV Guide: Congratulations...

Although unaware of it now, these individuals will not only save the world, but change it forever. This transformation from ordinary to extraordinary will not occur overnight.

 Doc Brown prepares to explain a timeline tangent in Back to the Future Part II
Doc Brown prepares to explain a timeline tangent in Back to the Future Part II
This article will be an attempt to describe the multitude of timelines featured in Heroes, a montrer with a heck of a lot of time travel and prophecy aversion. As of the end of the fourth season, there are twenty-nine (or seventy-four; see below) different timelines in the Heroes story – wow! Hopefully this can help with wrapping our brains around the complex plot. Note that this will not cover any alternate timelines that may be featured in the graphic novels, as I haven’t read all of them and I don’t have a good grasp on their goings-on. This is complicated enough already.

The first timeline...

 Stylized synesthesia.
Stylized synesthesia.
link is a neurological condition characterized par the crossing of separate senses, allowing for perception of external stimuli to merge together. An example of such is to have sound appear to the synesthete as pulsing couleurs floating in the air. Heroes has introduced a synesthete character, Emma, whose stylized synesthesia is presented as a superpower alongside Hiro’s mastery of time and space. I initially found this handling of synesthesia insulting, but have somewhat cooled off after the reveal that Emma’s synesthetic ability allows her to supernaturally control sound in such a way that...

Each time I see a great scene in a show, I mentally put it on a list. Sometimes these lists are transferred to paper, which get Lost within a few days, ou sometimes I forget altogether. After months of procrastinating, I'm proud to present the first liste that actually made it to the screen - my haut, retour au début 10 Heroes scenes from season one. I probably shouldn't have to warn you, but just in case - if you're a new fan and haven't finished season 1 yet, here be spoilers.
