 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 mostra Heroes is the talk of the town and for good reason. But there's one very big and painful problem with the mostra 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 Televisione mostra until the giorno I saw the pilot episode. Every time I see that Nissan Versa o the mention of it on the mostra makes me cringe. The mela, apple iPod video was a little less blatant, but irritating nonetheless. Product placement...

I enjoy watching Heroes. I truly do. It's a great mostra 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, Leggere 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 Film -- so I apologize if I managle comic book lore.)

- "You were right mom. I am meant to be special just like te wanted. I can be anything. I can even be President."

- "I understood it before, the killing. I had a reason—to take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection."

- "This is usually the part when people start screaming."

Most recente aggiornamenti made on 7 December 2007.

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

 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 articolo will be an attempt to describe the multitude of timelines featured in Heroes, a mostra 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.

GREAT Citazioni from the third season of Heroes

The farfalla Effect

Angela: "But I am, dear. I am."

- Hiro: "You are not faster than me, nemesis."

- Claire: "That pain, I'm always so grateful for. Because it's the only time I know I'm still human."

The secondo Coming

- Sylar [to Claire]: "You can never die... and now, I guess, neither can I."

- Claire: "Are te gonna eat it?"
Sylar: "Eat your brain? Claire, that's disgusting. "

- Claire: "I'm sorry, Peter, I always loved you."

- Sylar: "Why is there evil? How many angeli can dance on the head of a pin?...

Screen Burn

Mark Spatney is particularly proud of this scene where heals as she walks out of her burning house in Company man.
"Origionally the plan was to have various foto doubles for [Hayden Panettiere] in stages of make-up that they would cut between. On the giorno of shooting, it became evident that this was not going to work because although the attrici looked like Claire, they didn'y proform like Claire. They didn't have Haydens way of walking. So we created a CG double and exactly matched it to Hayden's proformance and then went betwen the live actress and the CG charactor. Eric Grenaudier...

In the tradition of the "Nuts!" campaign that compelled CBS to resurrect Jericho da shipping hundreds of pounds of nuts to CBS's corporate offices, link has begun a movement targeted towards the networks and the AMPTP to urge them, through the nuisance of fan activism, to bring the strike to an end so our preferito show(s) can sposta forward.

Our plan is to have fans, as many as we can get, to mail the studio head of their choice a lovely, but very inexpensive, Roller pattinare, skate charm. A "Cheap Skate" for a bunch of Cheap Skates.

For this effort to work, we need to bring national attention to it. te can help da digging this article:


And of course telling fan everywhere to visit, sign up, and speak out at link.

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

Here's the articolo reprinted:

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

How does a mild-mannered Dynasty 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...

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.
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 più powers than Peter does, like melting metal o superhearing.

3Claire-Instant healing

 Stylized synesthesia.
Stylized synesthesia.
link is a neurological condition characterized da 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 colori 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...

So gruesome te sometimes can't look, so real te double-take, and so essential to the quality of the mostra 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 te 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 più than happy to talk to the Heroes magazine and reveal some tricks of the trade...

Heroes, as almost everyone I've spoken to agrees, is a phenomenal show.

For me, though, it's più than that. As a die-hard comic book fan since the age of two, it's a dream come true.

Everything I loved about comics growing up is encapsulated in Heroes. The heroes, the villains, the powers, everything.

It's a Voices (Pitch Perfect) comic tale, yet is also fresh and original.

What boggles my mind is that Tim Kring*, the show-runner, has never read a comic book. Seriously.

I know, it shocked me too. But it's true. While one of the writers and executive producers is comic great Jeph Loeb**, the man in charge...

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, o sometimes I forget altogether. After months of procrastinating, I'm proud to present the first lista that actually made it to the screen - my superiore, in alto 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.

This episode was dircted da first time Heroes director, agrifoglio 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 o 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 più powerful to have Jack do the slice off-stage in a close up and then cut wide for...
