Heroes Reborn Header

I loved Heroes. In 2006, it was a unique concept for television – people who developed extraordinary abilities, and the people who attacked, feared, and loved them. I loved Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), whose ability to take on other people’s powers made his every move an interesting one. I loved Dr. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), the earnest, genius, easy-on-the-eyes researcher. I even loved Sylar (Zachary Quinto), the first really terrifying villain I had seen in a long time.

So I will be tuning in for Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode series set to air September 24th on NBC.

Read the official synopsis, watch the trailer for Heroes Reborn – The Extraordinary Among Us, and the other promo video below.

Wil Wheaton

Wil Wheaton is something of a fanboy favorite for the people. He’s a former child star, best known as the lead in the Rob Reiner adaptation of Stephen King’s Stand by Me, and also as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He’s done tons of other stuff along with these two better-known titles, but the best thing about him is that he’s grown into a regular everyday guy and fan of many things geek, which puts him high on our list of coolest celebrities in the universe.

One thing that we didn’t know about Mr. Wheaton — and you probably didn’t know it either — is that he was actually in J.J. AbramsStar Trek. That’s right, Wes Crusher of Next Generation was in the new Trek.

On the official Wil Wheaton blog, the actor and writer shared the whole story yesterday, and it is quite the amusing tale indeed. The interesting thing about the story is that apparently, Wheaton and Abrams decided that it would remain a sacred secret for all eternity, leaving only a special handful of chosen ones who would possess the truth. Eventually, Viacom found out and for some reason, declared that Wil had to be credited for the work — even with him agreeing to the secret and many “uncredited roles” already existing.

HeroesHeroes
Season 2
Starring Masi Oka, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Coleman
Universal Home Entertainment
Release date: August 26th, 2008

After going back to re-watch Season 1, and finding myself pleasantly surprised at how well it held up, I also went back and watched the second season of Heroes. You may call me an apologist, but I enjoyed season 2 almost as much as the first one. Did the season have its problems? Sure. A lot of the new characters were dumb and annoying, and their introduction caused characters the audience had grown attached to in the first season to be cast aside. It also didn’t help the show that the writer’s strike occurred just as the story was gaining some speed and becoming more interesting. Having seen some of what the creators had planned for the second half of the season, I’m sad that we didn’t get the story as planned. Still, we get 11 solid episodes on this set, and while they may not be quite as good as the first season, they still have their moments, and are more enjoyable than a lot of other crap on TV.

The episodes on this set cover the entire second season, which saw Hiro (Masi Oka) sent to the past to inspire his childhood hero. We also got Peter’s (Milo Ventimiglia) trip to Ireland, then his trip to the future, followed by his journey to Texas. We got Claire (Hayden Panettiere) and her annoying new boyfriend, the “death” of HRG (Jack Coleman), and then we got to meet Claire’s birth mother.
