Milo Ventimiglia, Shannen Doherty to Star in New Web Series About Sleep

by Chris Harnick, posted Nov 29th 2010 5:00PM
Milo VentimigliaThe world of branded Web shows is now shining a light on getting a better night's sleep. Yep, sleep.

The new series, 'Suite 7,' is sponsored by the Better Sleep Council, a division of the International Sleep Products Association. The goal of the seven-part series: To raise awareness of how important a proper night's sleep is for your health and well-being. Lifetime will air the series on MyLifetime.com, and it will also be available on Hulu.

Just who is going to teach you the importance of sleep? None other than 'Heroes' star Milo Ventimiglia and 'Beverly Hills 90210's' Shannen Doherty. But that's not all! Doherty's former costar Brian Austin Green will also appear, along with Craig Bierko, Illeana Douglas, Eddie McClintock and Jaime Murray.

Milo Ventimiglia to Star in Series Based on His Comic Book, 'Rest'

by Jean Bentley, posted Nov 3rd 2010 3:00PM
Milo VentimigliaGetting 'Heroes' back on the air might be a lost cause -- that wrap-up movie we were promised just isn't going to happen -- but we can at least root for the actors from canceled superhero drama to land new TV gigs.

The latest former Hero to sign up for a new TV job is Milo Ventimiglia, who is set to star in a new NBC drama, 'Rest,' based on the comic book series he co-created. 'Rest' follows a workaholic twentysomething guy in New York city who becomes addicted to a drug that eliminates the need for sleep after he participates in a clinical trial.

Review: 'Heroes' - 'Brave New World' (season finale)

'Heroes': 'Brave New World'
(S04E19)
Volume Five came to a climactic end, and as with past volumes, it was both exciting and a little bit of a letdown. But also in keeping with tradition, it left the door open for exciting possibilities in Volume Six, teased at the end of the episode, despite a fifth season not being a certainty at this point.

I suspect, though, that NBC will in fact bring the show back, despite it's lackluster ratings performance. A reboot, of sorts, to the franchise could revitalize it in the same way 'Chuck' has seen ratings improve this season. Properly handled, 'Heroes' is a show that could go several seasons. "Properly handled" is the key to that phrase, and it has been mismanaged for too long.

What Will Happen in the 'Heroes' Season (Series?) Finale?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 4th 2010 4:31PM
Monday is the finale of 'Heroes' (coming early because there were no repeats). I say "finale" because NBC hasn't decided yet whether this will be a season finale or a series finale. Greg Grunberg says the episode ends in a cliffhanger so he thinks the show will be renewed.

What do you think will happen? From the preview it looks like Samuel is finally putting his plan into motion with Emma and Peter and Sylar (yes, Sylar) team up to stop him. Do you think this will be a season finale or a series finale, and what could the cliffhanger be? How will Noah and Claire get out of the buried van? Will Sylar turn good for good?

Review: 'Heroes' - 'The Wall'

Heroes: The Wall
(S04E17)
While not quite as surreal as Pink Floyd's version, 'The Wall' still offered a pretty trippy experience for Sylar and Peter. Several years and a few hours later, it didn't seem like they were going to make any progress on Peter's hare-brained scheme to bust Sylar out of his mental prison.

The rest of the episode showed us Samuel's attempts to create a permanent rift between Claire and Noah by revealing to Claire, and us, the "Secret Origin" of H.R.G. By that I don't mean the origins of the odd fashion choice Mr. Bennett has made in eyewear, but the secret past he hasn't shared with Claire, Sandra or anyone in his life.

Why do this? Because apparently, and I still don't know why, Claire is important to Samuel's plans. In that she is a "special," I agree. In any other regard, she's not that remarkable. And where he left things, it seems he just might have figured that out.

Review: Heroes - The Art of Deception

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 26th 2010 3:35AM
Heroes: The Art of Deception(S04E17) Forces are starting to converge at the Sullivan Bros. Carnival as we get closer and closer to the finale -- two weeks away now! After last week's stunt where he wiped out an entire town, the "family" at the carnival is understandably a little wary of Samuel. He did, after all, erase a small town killing hundreds of people. I'd give him a wide berth.

Maybe if I was invulnerable, I'd be more willing to get closer to him. Claire certainly has no reason to be afraid, right? She stumbled upon her father's plans regarding taking down Samuel and shutting down the carnival for good. Like Edgar, she is concerned about Noah's plans to break apart the family. Noah, as usual, is bull-headed and stubborn. I'm just not sure under what authority he was acting throughout this episode.

As for Sylar, we saw him at the Parkman house. And we know how powerful Matt is. Maybe, just maybe, this psychopath can be taken care of for good. Not hardly.

Review: Heroes - Close to You

Heroes: Close to You(S04E15) Doesn't it always come down to a girl? I'm not sure why I didn't see it.

This week saw many of the pieces coming together for the endgame coming soon between Samuel and whatever band of heroes Noah can put together to take him down. But then again, Noah's not the only one gunning for Samuel at this point, is he? Other than Sylar and Tracy, we touched base with just about everyone in the cast, and for the first time in a long time, this series is starting to feel the same way it did during that exciting first season, when it had three times as many viewers.

If you were irritated trying to keep up with Hiro's bizarre "geek culture" speak, you'll be pleased to know that it comes to an end this episode.

Review: Heroes - Let It Bleed

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 5th 2010 2:10AM
Ray Park(S04E14) See, Heroes does answer questions. Now we know what happened to Claire's flying boyfriend, West. SPOILER ALERT! They're Facebook friends.

This second episode in a two-hour Heroes extravaganza returned attention to Sylar's storyline, last seen walking away from Peter, having fully regained control of his body. Does that mean Sylar is back 100%? It may not be that simple. We also got the wake of Nathan's funeral, where we learned that Peter isn't finding it very easy to let go.

I also am going to choose to believe that Nathan's wife and kids were there somewhere. It's been so long since we've seen them, if they were there I'm not even sure I would recognize them. But I'll give the writers the benefit of the doubt on this one. We didn't see everyone.

Heroes returns tonight. Do you care?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 4th 2010 1:29PM
HeroesYes, the whole "Heroes isn't good anymore" thing has been debated ad nauseam, but I'm still curious to see how many of you fans are sticking with the show, which returns to NBC tonight at 8 with a two-hour episode. I've been watching the show since the beginning and, yup, I'm in it until it's over. Does it have that new car smell of the first season? No, but I still find it (mostly) fun.

Will you watch it tonight?

Are you still going to watch Heroes?
Yes. I remain a loyal fan!863 (41.9%)
I check in once in a while but it's not that good now.277 (13.4%)
No. The show hasn't been good since season one.780 (37.8%)

Review: Heroes - The Fifth Stage

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 1st 2009 10:55AM
Heroes: The Fifth Stage
(S04E12) One of the comic books that I never expected to enjoy is Marvel's X-Factor. It used to be your typical spandex and fists adventure, but then it changed into a noir detective series, with mutants feature much more subdued powers. One of the best of these is Madrox, also known as Multiple Man. Upon impact of any kind, he splits into two beings, and then his doppelgangers retain this ability.

Why am I talking about a comic book character in a review about Heroes? Well, aside from the obvious connection, we got introduced to a new character this week. With Ray Park's Edgar gone from the Sullivan Bros. circus, Samuel turns to another denizen of the big top to step in and be his right-hand man, or right hands.

Review: Heroes - Thanksgiving

Heroes: Thanksgiving
(S04E11)
I am thankful that we are finally getting to the meat of this volume. I am thankful that we are inching closer to the inevitable conclusion of this battle between Sylar and Nathan over who will retain control of the body. And I am thankful that Angela Petrelli, the always incomparable Cristine Rose, was back this week.

Also making a return appearance for the Bennett family Thanksgiving dinner was Sandra, along with her new beau Doug. And, of course, Mr. Muggles. It's sweet that Muggs fell in love with Doug's dog, but that doesn't excuse Sandra for dating such a total tool. It's a little awkward to think of going to your ex's holiday, but it's not unheard of. Particularly since she probably already knew Claire was going to be there.

Not to be outdone, Samuel had a Thanksgiving dinner of his own back at the Carnival, but Hiro certainly wasn't thankful to be there.

Ugly Betty star was almost Peter Petrelli on Heroes

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 19th 2009 4:03PM
MabiusI love hearing stories about how certain stars auditioned for certain roles and didn't get them. What would the show/movie have been like if they were cast in it instead of the person who eventually got the role? For example, did you know that Danny DeVito was almost cast as Serena on Gossip Girl?

Here's another tidbit: Ugly Betty star Eric Mabius auditioned for the role of Peter Petrelli on Heroes. It's not really clear whether he didn't get the role because Milo Ventimiglia got it or if producers of Ugly Betty grabbed him for the role of Daniel Meade before Heroes producers could sign him up. Whatever happened, he's now playing the head of Mode magazine while Ventimiglia is absorbing people's superpowers.

The interview above is rather interesting. Mabius has moved back to Massachusetts with his family (he met his wife here while in college and wants to raise his kids here). He says he doesn't have a plan for his future, though he might have to get one. I have a feeling this might be the last season for Ugly Betty.

Review: Heroes - Brother's Keeper

Heroes: Brothers' Keeper
(S04E10)
For some reason, while I was watching this episode I got to thinking: "What if this had been the second season of Heroes." Would it perhaps still be a top-rated show; one that NBC could rest its laurels and future on instead of Jay Leno? As with that first season, I feel that sense of wonder about what's going on, and things are really coming together.

That said, there is some sloppy thinking on the parts of both Tracy and Hiro this week. But there's also the continuing consolidation of power by Samuel, and finally an explanation of both why he's doing this and what Mohinder's been up to.

I'm going to admit to being wrong now. For weeks I've been saying that I haven't missed Suresh at all; that I would be just as happy if he never showed up. But his return and appearance (and even explanation for his absence) were handled so well, that I liked him all over again.

Heroes: Tabula Rasa

Heroes: Tabula Rasa
(S04E06)
If there was a theme this week, it's about nurturing and guiding people with abilities. We followed up with Sylar, now in the nefarious embrace of the Sullivan Brothers Carnival, as well as Peter and Hiro, and by extension Emma. The quest to save Hiro's life from the brain tumor that's killing him even affords Noah the opportunity to atone for his cold past by providing support to a former kid he and the Haitian had "visited" back in his Company days.

We got some very nice character moments this week. I like Hiro in the role of mentor to Emma, as it gives him a focus for his crazy optimism. Plus, we got to see how stopping time makes a magic show even more awesome -- I know that's the kind of crap I'd be doing with that ability. Screw saving the world, watch me make this woman vanish.
