'Heroes': As for New Episodes, It's Dead to Us

Do we honestly believe that Nathan is dead? Do we honestly believe that Niki is dead? Yeah, those appeared to be real bullets that penetrated the Flying Man just as he was about to expose the Company (did no one in that room see that trench-coated assassin?). And it sure...

'Heroes': The Quick and the (Almost) Dead

Well, that's it for the Wonder Twins. Sylar took care of Alejandro by sticking a knife in him and, to add insult to mortal stab wound, made out with Maya nearly right in front of Alejandro's still-warm body. Hey, Sylar deserves a smooch from Maya after he taught her to...

'Heroes': Dads! Daughters! And the Regeneration Gap!

Noah goes down. But is he out? He may have been shot in the eye, but it seems that Noah might share daughter Claire Bear's special gift--except the whole regeneration thing takes a whole lot longer. (And just where did he wake up?) Alas, we may not know his fate...

'Heroes': Gotta Love a 'Shotgun' Wedding

Finally on "Heroes": answers, answers, sweet glorious answers. But, really, were there enough? Niki/Jessica/Gina and hipster-victim D.L. (NBC) This one was the strongest episode of the season, as well as the most promoted -- lots of show producers and actors on the PR offensive for this one. (Heck, they even...

'Heroes': Baffling, but Better

When "Heroes" gets more confusing, does that mean it's getting better? Well, then, let's chalk up last night's episode as "better." I suppose the best news of the night is that Hiro is finally out of 17th century Japan, although not before we had to sit through one last mini-episode...

'Heroes': Three Cheers for Claire!

On Monday night's "Heroes": the best high school prank ever. Claire and Wes give Debbie the Drunk Cheerleader a good scare by staging Claire's murder. Fly Boy, complete in ski mask, grabs Claire right in front of Debbie's disbelieving eyes, taker her up a mile high and drops her on...

'Heroes'' New Hellion

Veronica Mars, you are one mean Hero. Kristen Bell, former star of the cultish UPN/CW detective show, made her much-heralded debut on "Heroes" Monday night, and, before the credits rolled, her character Elle had already made toast out of one unlucky Irishman. Straight from "Mars": actress Kristen Bell. (AP Photo/NBC)...

A Burger Bonanza 'Hero'

Yeah, the heroes can save the world and all that. But they also have some practical skills as evidenced in Monday night's "Heroes." • Fly Boy can take you anywhere in the world including the top of the "Hollywood" sign. • Micah can get you free Pay-Per-View wrestling (regular price:...

'Heroes': Sylar Lives

Sylar lives. Despite the Samurai sword to the chest at the end of last season, it appears that the head-splicing, DNA-stealing psychopath is still with us. At first, it looked good for ol' Sy, waking up next to a red-haired hottie in what appeared to be a Corona beer commercial....

A Toe-Tingling 'Heroes'

How bored is Claire "The Cheerleader" Benet in her new California home? At the end of last night's "Heroes," she cut off her own little toe just to see if it would grow back. (It did, FYI). Talk about too much time on your hands (or, in this case, feet)....

Less Talk, More Action, 'Heroes'

"Heroes" fans, let's talk. After breaking out of the TV gates in top form last fall, the NBC sci-fi series stumbled both in ratings and quality after an ill-timed six-week spring break beginning in March. Did Monday's season premiere make up for that unfortunate hiatus and subsequent disappointing season finale?...
