    Odd... this doesn't look exciting at all

    by Heckles

    Has it been too long? Was last season just overly boring? Have the comic book movies recently raised the bar too high? Could I ask any more questions?

  • July 17, 2008, 7:40 p.m. CST

    Did they really just have a cut of Claire in a bikini?

    by Bean_

    They don't need to try that hard do they?

  • July 17, 2008, 7:44 p.m. CST

    Alternate realities fighting it out?

    by Mullah Omar

    The end of that makes it look like we'll get some warped future versions of these people. Will they get stuck in the present and duke it out with themselves? <br> <br> Other than that, I welcome some genuine antagonists. The main obstacle to the heroes so far has been their own inability to coordinate and deal with real life. Bo-ring! Give us some real threats so the heroes have to start working together to stay alive and save others.

    Scar Peter and Dark Claire? ALTERNATE TIMELINE!!! AGAIN!

  • July 17, 2008, 7:47 p.m. CST

    Actually I think it was Ali Larter in the lingerie . . .

    by SkidMarkedUndies

    Thus showing that she survives that K-Ville blast after all.

  • July 17, 2008, 7:48 p.m. CST

    "The main obstacle to the heroes so far ...

    by Hercules

    ... has been their own inability to coordinate and deal with real life." <p> And, oh yeah, that near-omnipotent nerd who kept eating their brains.

  • July 17, 2008, 7:59 p.m. CST

    I Think It's Done

    by El Fuego

    I'll give it a few episodes but it feels like they lost their touch. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst between this and 24.

  • July 17, 2008, 7:59 p.m. CST

    All they had to do was befriend Peter...

    by Mullah Omar

    ...and let him deal with Sylar. After the fnale of Season 1, they knew what he could do. And anyway, Sylar was basically out of commission last season! <br> <br> I get that Sylar could be a formidable enemy (probably a bit too formidable for most characters), but just one antagonist - who was sidelined for the last arc - was not enough. Elle was okay but was not given much to do. <br> <br> Bring on a stable of superpowered villains and give everybody credible threats and not just snotty cheerleaders, inept gangbangers, and Uhuru's nephew.

    Heroes... Vilains...?!

    by DoubleFantasy

    Really...? My god this show is just gonna turn into a goddamn mess. what a shame.

    "Heroes And Villians"?

    by Half-Baked-Goggle-Box-Do-Gooder

    Is Brian Wilson doing the theme to this? WTF?

  • July 17, 2008, 8:18 p.m. CST


    by AdrianVeidt


  • July 17, 2008, 8:24 p.m. CST

    Villains are obviously more goal-oriented

    by drewlicious

    Just look at how much faster they seem to learn their powers. Sylar's a freakin' whiz kid.

  • July 17, 2008, 8:37 p.m. CST

    Im psyched!!!

    by Atomica

    Despite a few people's oddly negative comments, this looks very cool. I like the fact that we'll be seeing more than one Major Supervillain, and even more of the Heroes working together, and against each other. I realize that Midasman and Electragal were considered villians, but they didn't...they were people with their own twisted objectives. Sylar is an evil son of a bitch, and i welcome more of them >:) September is too far away...

  • July 17, 2008, 9:05 p.m. CST

    what a disappointment.

    by billypilgrimisunstuck

    suffice it to say.

  • July 17, 2008, 9:07 p.m. CST

    And of course...

    by Gearfree

    They blocked Canada from the webisodes. At least they let us read the comics. Global stopped uploading them at chapter 48 on their mini-site. The flash video doesn't even work.

  • July 17, 2008, 9:30 p.m. CST

    hmmmm level 5?

    by VictorNewman

    kinda like Smallville's level 33.1?

  • July 17, 2008, 9:32 p.m. CST

    and yes...

    by VictorNewman

    I watch Smallville...I can't help it.

  • July 17, 2008, 9:42 p.m. CST

    the trajectory of this show has been like Lost

    by mrgreentheplant

    i dont want to bring up the expletive-laden debate of which is better, but emmy-darling season one of heroes and rightfully snubbed season two have so far mapped the quality of Lost. so... i'm thinking i should watch only the last 2 game-changing episodes of heroes and villains, and start getting excited in a year or so for season 4 greatness

  • July 17, 2008, 10:26 p.m. CST

    So, like, wasn't Nathan shot at during his "admittance" speech

    by chiefpapa

    Who cares, in the comic book/tv universe no one really friggin dies. Not really sure if I going back to the show, especially with that awful Hiro-was-in-Japan-way-too-long Season 2. I'll stick with the 4400, thank you.

  • July 17, 2008, 11 p.m. CST

    so now i watched it....and i was right

    by bacci40

    an attempt to recapture the flavor of the first season....bleh...GIVE US SIDE BOOB SHOTS OF CLAIRE

  • July 18, 2008, 12:16 a.m. CST

    Season 2

    by vadakinX

    The only thing I remember from season 2 is their terrible attempt at recreating Cork, Ireland, as well as the accent...and I only remember that because it's where Im from. <p> In fact over the last few months I forgot all about Heroes, as in I forgot the show even existed. They really need to do something or the show won't make it past the third episode of the season.

  • July 18, 2008, 12:18 a.m. CST

    Dragonball Z

    by vadakinX

    I just realised...Heroes reminds me of the anime version of Dragonball, specifically Dragonball Z...a whole lot of talking and pointless backstory inbetween a few seconds of action. <p> It kinda worked for DBZ because the action tended to be worth waiting for...not so much with Heroes

  • July 18, 2008, 12:26 a.m. CST

    Villains' origins

    by LoneGun

    It might be interesting if they chronicle the origins of some of these villains, they way they chronicled the beginnings of the "Heroes" in Season One. It could be neat to see how some of these super-powered characters fall to the ways of the dark side.

  • July 18, 2008, 1:59 a.m. CST

    wow .. not location locked !!!!

    by caipirina

    Looks nice enough !

  • July 18, 2008, 2:10 a.m. CST

    Claire looks stupid...

    by Judge Briggs

    Charlize Theron in Hancock stupid. Dark Knight = best comic book movie EVER.

  • July 18, 2008, 2:37 a.m. CST

    Show needs a big time overhaul...

    by HappyHamster

    They should not be getting outscripted and out fx'd by Smallville on a weekly basis.

  • July 18, 2008, 3:13 a.m. CST

    Good lord, season 2 was a mess

    by hktelemacher

    A few nice moments but a lot of embarassing bupkis. I'm sure the Claire shooting scarred Peter scene is another alternate future Hiro will soon start getting his mail sent to. And seriously, what's the point of pretending to kill off people in a show where three of the main characters' powers present ever reliable reset buttons? Sigh. I'm sure I'll stilll be watching for some of that decent first season vibe, but hopefully last season's giant dive in quality was from the strike rather than just general staff jackassery.

  • July 18, 2008, 3:23 a.m. CST

    I can't wait for this.


    Sure, season 2 was a let down. But the whole of last season on most shows was a let down, partly due to the writers strike. I just can't wait for some new entertainment. Lets hope the 08/09 season is a good one!

  • July 18, 2008, 6:07 a.m. CST

    This show has "Dr Who Syndrome"

    by A G

    It isn't actually good but somehow manages to carry an above average fan base. It's the same phenomena that expains why shows that aren't actually funny, like 2 and a Half Men, seem to go on for centuries.

  • July 18, 2008, 7:07 a.m. CST

    Is the cheerleaders Gay Flying Boyfriend in it?

    by sott68

    I guess she is attracted to Femmy guys who can fly.

  • July 18, 2008, 7:15 a.m. CST

    here's hoping this season is good...

    by just pillow talk

    You fucking stupid NBC whores for taking off JourneyMan.

  • July 18, 2008, 7:31 a.m. CST

    trailer was cool...

    by turketron

    But you can make a cool trailer from pretty much anything. Of course I'm gonna watch it, but I'm not getting my hopes up that they've returned to form from the shittyness of the S1 finale and the mega shittyness of season 2.

  • July 18, 2008, 8:08 a.m. CST

    The Trolls Are Out Today!

    by Real Deal

    I think this will be good! I really can't wait to see what happens. That's what I got from that trailer. How could you get anything else? So that leaves people who've already passed judgement on the show and trolls. Either way what are you doing here if already don't like it? I like this show and I think season 2 got the short end of the stick because of the writer's strike.

  • July 18, 2008, 8:23 a.m. CST

    Is Loeb involved?

    by OBSD

    If Jeph Loeb is involved, then this show will continue to suck. If they wised up and fired his ass (bloody unlikely since he has the most undeserved popularity in comics since Rob Liefeld), then Heroes has got a shot of pulling out of the nosedive the show is currently in.

  • July 18, 2008, 9 a.m. CST

    A G has "No Clue Syndrome"

    by SpyGuy

    Tell you what, junior. Go watch "The Stolen Earth" or any episode of DOCTOR WHO written by Steven Moffat (the ones that have won fucking Hugo awards, preferably) and then come back when you have something more intelligent to say.

  • July 18, 2008, 10:28 a.m. CST

    On this day, in 1980 (read on, it is relevant to Heroes..)

    by Pennsy

    The Olympic flame arrived in Moscow, and outgoing International Olympic Committee boss Lord Killanin ripped President Carter a new one for the boycott which was about to take place. India launched its first satellite and Billy Joel's Glass Houses was the country's #1 album. And on this day in 1980, God was on his A+++ game and ushered this lady into the world. :) <p> Happy birthday, Kristen Bell. And Forgetting Sarah Marshall for good measure will go over $100 million at the worldwide boxoffice - today. It stands now at $99,112,164. Quite the birthday present, yes?

  • July 18, 2008, 10:34 a.m. CST

    I was just about to post: "Where's Pennsy? I'm sure he would have posted a KB birthday message by now!" :D<P>Coincidently I was rewatching VM s1 again last night. Good times!

    by palooka_boy

    Nathan Petrelli AND Niki are alive an kicking? I really hate Ali Larter's character. I kinda wish she'd stay in the ground. Anywho, who else thinks that the gun-toting Claire is a shapeshifter?

    letting the babies have ice cream for dinner

    by INWOsuxRED

    I'm never overjoyed when a show simply gives everyone what they asked for on such a basic level. It makes things feel predictable at the very least. Why pay so many writers if you're going to let the fans (or in this case the non-fans seem to have more influence on the story) craft your plot? I want good stories over a specific quantity of villians. I hope they manage to fill this pandering with good stories, but the previews have me a bit skeptical.

  • July 18, 2008, 11:36 a.m. CST

    So to make the show better again they bring in new villains? Ugh

    by Darth Bauer

    Cousin Oliver is on his way with his laser beam glasses like Cyclops.

    You're all stupid fuckers!

    by ReZourceman

    Well...the majority of you. Do you really think it looks bad? It looks fucking crazy sweet. Ali Larter in underwear/bikini is just visual pleasement! FOR SHAME PEOPLE!

  • July 18, 2008, 12:29 p.m. CST


    by OBSD

    It's a perfectly cromulent word.

  • July 18, 2008, 1:48 p.m. CST

    Looks just fine to me

    by Grendel745

    Even season two of Heroes was more watchable then most of the other primetime dramas. To paraphrase Bill Maher from years ago...Heroes is like sex, when its good it's really good and when its bad its still pretty good.

  • July 18, 2008, 3:33 p.m. CST

    I will watch it.

    by samsquanch

    But I will also complain.

  • July 18, 2008, 3:45 p.m. CST


    by INWOsuxRED

    Go back and read the talkbacks for Lost during the mini-Season 3 start and you'll see many people rushing to declare the show you're using as an example dead.

    by billypilgrimisunstuck

    Even the mini season of Lost in season 3 was 10x better than the crap spewed out by Kring and co. But at least Pushing Daisies was wildly entertaining. Go Fuller!

    "Choose A Side"?

    by jim

    You mean like Marvel's Civil War? Will Season 4 be "House of Heroes"? Season 5 - "Zombie Heroes"?

  • July 19, 2008, 12:47 p.m. CST


    by INWOsuxRED

    I've seen every episode of Lost. I'm only pointing out that people were talking the same way about Lost that they talk about Heroes now. Of course all those people who were trashing Lost are nowhere to be found now. If Heroes returns to form, I doubt many will admit to trashing it either.

  • July 19, 2008, 1:12 p.m. CST

    Lost eye shot

    by BurgerKing

    Yeah, I saw the opening eye shot that screamed LOST. Besides that, this looks a heck of a lot like the eye-rollingly typical Heroes plotlines that will probably last about half of the season before some other ridiculous plot takes over. Yet, I like the ideas of more villians and perhaps a Claire villain.

  • July 19, 2008, 1:52 p.m. CST


    by rutgersjaffo

    Wow. People are actually still watching Heroes?! Also, Lost rules!!!

  • July 20, 2008, 10:59 a.m. CST


    by kadayi

    Season 2 was a bit of a disaster tbh, not particularly helped by the Writer strike, or the god awful hokey Japanese plot. I'm ambivalent about this teaser trailer. They need to wrap up quite a few loose threads and avoid having every other person whose introduced to the show suddenly finding they have a super power.

  • Sept. 28, 2008, 2:42 a.m. CST

    This season is fine so far.

    by happybunni

    Everyone just seems really bitter about season 2. The alternate timelines thing does suck yes, and the baddies in the cells look like they will mostly die soon due to lack of screen time, but this season so far is still more interesting than all of last season.
