Heroes - VIDEO - Comic-Con Report

Ah, Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center. If you've been to Comic-Con before, you know how cavernous Hall H is. If you don't, well, it's just frick'n huge. I didn't think anything could make Ballroom 20 seem small.
I got in like over two hours before the panels in this room started, and by the time I got in it was about 3/4 full. Then, finally, the Heroes panel started.
The thing about the Heroes panel is that, unlike any of the other TV panels I went to so far, there were very few things discussed or questions asked. I think perhaps five people got to ask questions, most which weren't informative at all. What did take up the time was a viewing of the entire first episode of the new season, which doesn't premiere until September 22. I'll post some spoilery details on that later, but for now I'm typing this as I await the Lost panel.
I'll just leave you with this: I gave up early on Heroes last season, and just by watching this episode I think I'm coming back. I think even if you didn't watch Season 2 at all, you can pick right back up again and be blown away. It's definitely a game-changer of an episode, nevermind the season. Hopefully the rest of the season will be as good.
The entire cast was present: Jack Coleman, Greg Grunberg, Ali Larter, Masi Oka Hayden Panettiere, Adrian Pasdar, Zachary Quinto, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Dania Ramirez, Christine Rose and Milo Ventimigilia. Also present was creator Tim Kring and artist Tim Sale. Unfortunately we didn't get a whole lot out of them, but I can follow up with a more detailed report later.
