Claire Bennett

Sneak Peek: a very Heroes Thanksgiving

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 18th 2009 3:33PM
We're starting to see Thanksgiving episodes of TV shows, and Heroes is no exception. This Monday's episode ("Thanksgiving") has the Bennett family gathering for Turkey Day and it's...uncomfortable, especially since Mom brings a date (Doug) and so does Noah (Lauren).

But the question I have (and so will you) about this scene is: where the hell is Lyle?

Behind the scenes of tonight's big Heroes "moment" (SPOILERS)

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 12th 2009 3:06PM
I don't know if this really counts as a spoiler since NBC is showing the scene in promos, but something happens to Claire tonight that you might not expect. Here's an extended, behind the scenes look at the filming of the scene. Good plot or just attention-seeking cheese? (Not sure if this is how the scene will air tonight or a web-only remix.)

I still don't trust Claire's new friend. It's almost as if she killed Claire's roommate so she could get to this moment. Or maybe I just want there to be more to this story than "Claire's roommate killed herself suddenly."

Actually, I think the new Heroes promo poster is kinda boring

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2009 3:33PM
HeroesI've read a few things online about this promo poster for the new season of Heroes (larger version here) and people seem to like it. Me? I find it kinda boring, unless they're changing the show completely and making it a new version of The Mod Squad.

It really says nothing about the new direction of the show, but the video after the jump is fun.

Heroes: An Invisible Thread (season finale)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 28th 2009 12:20AM
Adrian Pasdar as Nathan Petrelli on (S03E25) In my early look at this finale, I laid a pretty broad hint as to the major twist at the end of this volume, and I was impressed with some of the deductive abilities of our readers. And the fact that one of you got it exactly right. Now that we've all seen the final cut of the closing chapter of the "Fugitives" volume of Heroes, we can really look back at it and see how we think things have gone.

What was needed was to wipe the slate clean, resolve as many of the dangling plot threads as possible, and establish a tabula rasa for "Volume Five." Or as much of one as we can this far into a series. After all, these last two volumes have left some pretty sour tastes in many mouths. The set up for interesting things to come next year was definitely well done. I'm more interested in what's going to happen in "Redemption" than I was excited about what happened in this finale.

Heroes: Building 26

Heroes: Building 26(S03E16) Spoiler Warning! The scene to the right happens in this episode. But don't worry, it doesn't really accomplish much ... for Tracy. It looks like the Justice League is forming under the tutelage of "Rebel." But who is he? We've got another Heroes mystery on our hand. You know, like the mystery of whether or not HRG is a good guy or a bad guy (that one will be addressed next week) and the mystery of who Sylar's father is. And if Claire will whine and bitch this week. Okay that last one isn't much of a mystery.

We went in three major directions tonight with the plot, skipping one group of "heroes" altogether, and surprisingly not missing them. First we had more drama in the Bennett household, complete with Claire rebelling against her father. It's nice to see that fifty episodes into the series, Claire's character has really grown and evolved into a mature young woman. The same goes for Hiro, who's gone from being an immature man-child with delusions of grandeur to an immature man-child with delusions of grandeur. Hmmm, doesn't sound as impressive when you put it like that.

Heroes: The Second Coming (season premiere)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 23rd 2008 8:55AM
Heroes' Sylar(S03E01) If you were a little disappointed with last year's strike-shortened season, not to mention that horrible diversion south of the border and that other lengthy one to feudal Japan, Heroes is looking to get back on track with its third season. "Volume 3: Villains" begins with tonight's two hour premiere, and continues for the first thirteen episodes before giving way to "Volume 4: Fugitives" for the remainder of the season.

We know that "Villains" will feature a re-powered Sylar and introduce a whole slew of more super powered baddies to the Heroes universe. I can't say that this was the most accessible place for potential new viewers to jump into the storyline, unless they caught that "red carpet" extravaganza before the episode began, but if you were able to keep up with it, they're certainly looking to turn things on their ears this year.

Heroes: Kindred

Sylar is back.

(S02E03) Back by popular demand, we're sticking with the format that Varun put to such good use in his most recent reviewcap of Heroes.

I'm actually thrilled he came up with it as my fingers were on the verge of falling off after pecking out the gargantuan review of the first episode. Since we happen to lack Claire's immaculate regenerative qualities, Varun and I would have been fingerless by season end had we kept up with the old format.

Heroes episode 2
(S02E02) "Have you seen a scary white man?" - Hiro Nakamura, time traveler.


Last week at TV Squad we had a big discussion on how to handle our "reviewcaps," the episodes of the big shows that we both provide a plot summary and review of. It seemed that we were getting a lot of very detailed plot descriptions, but not enough review. These special posts seem to go on and ramble on forever and there clearly needed to be some change. It was decided that we would treat reviewcaps not as entire episode treatments, but rather a review where all the major plot points are touched upon.

So I present to you, my lovely audience, my first ever (intentional) reviewcap!

Harry Knowles wrestles a Heroes "moral quandary"

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 6th 2006 5:49PM
Hayden PanettiereHarry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News has struck upon a fanboy quandary worthy of "how could Lois Lane have Superman's baby because her uterus would burst when the superbaby kicked?"

The application of geek hyperlogic often results in finding the superhero loophole. In this case, the superhero in question is Heroes' regenerating, resuscitating cheerleader Claire Bennet. Harry's question asks that if she is infinitely repairable, at the age when her cellular growth would be complete and, as a virgin, wouldn't her broken hymen infinitely repair itself? The discomfort of this would turn her off from having sex with men so she would be a virgin, cheerleading 17 year-old lesbian forever.

I suppose the "moral" part of Harry's quandary comes from the fact that the character is only 17, but he is quick to point out that this is above the age of consent in Texas where her character is located. It's good he looked into the state-by-state age of consent laws. Otherwise, people might think he was perv or something.
