'Heroes' Comes Back Strong
"Heroes" was, by far, the most electric panel I have attended so far at Comic-Con; like a rock concert when the whole cast took the stage. To that point: A girl in one of the front rows was holding up a sign, directed at Milo Ventimiglia, that said, "Milo, We Camped Out 4 U All Night." And they did. Several people slept outside the doors of Hall H just to get a prime seat for the panel.
They were rewarded -- not only with the eye candy that is the "Heroes" cast, but with a screening, in its entirety, of the first episode of the third season. Now, I gave up on "Heroes" last season because the show had gotten so far off track that I couldn't tolerate it anymore. (Hiro traveling back in time? Yawn.) But that episode got me back on board. The show has regained its sense of humor, something that was sorely missed last year.
I won't give anything away (although series creator Tim Kring encouraged us to go forth and talk about it, I don't want to be a spoil-sport). But you can expect: Some intense moments between Claire and Sylar, a Petrelli finding religion and more high jinks with Hiro and Ando.
If, like me, you gave up on "Heroes" last season, you may want to reconsider and start watching again come September. The first episode, at least, doesn't disappoint.
