Here's a preview of Heroes, season four

Like a lot of Heroes fans, there's a lot I've liked about the show and a lot that has frustrated me. But damn if they don't have me coming back season after season.

Jason already told you about what's coming up in season 4 ("Redemption"), and now here's a trailer. Looks like a whole new group of people with powers will be introduced (a carnival, I believe), Claire is in college, Mrs. Petrelli is still being mysterious, Sylar looks like Nathan (except when others see him as Sylar), and (sigh) it still looks like Hiro is time-traveling. But they have me curious again.

Goodbye Prison Break

Prison BreakFOX has canceled Prison Break.

Now, I think that even for hardcore fans this doesn't really come as a shock. I remember when the show premiered, the first question on everyone's mind was, how are they going to make an entire season of a TV show about a prison break? And as the first season went on the questions became, what happens if and when they get out of prison? Will the show end? Will they have to change the name of the show? That last one was actually toyed with but then abandoned.

FOX's Kevin Reilly says that the show has simply "run its course," and this is probably one of the few times that TV fans will agree with a network executive. The remaining episodes will start airing on April 17, but there's no word on how many episodes will be shown, the ones that are already done or if more will be filmed.

Was the idea for Prison Break stolen?

Prison Break DVDTwo Missouri brothers are suing FOX and Prison Break creator Paul Sheuring, saying they stole the idea for the hit show.

Robert Hughes was sent to prison in the 1960s for a crime he didn't commit, and older brother Donald helped him escape. On the surface this may not seem like much, but add on to the fact that they had their agent send FOX a script in 2001 about their experiences. The network wasn't interested, but then Prison Break debuted in 2005.

Robert Hughes makes an interesting point that, if they were to try and sell their story now, it would look like they were copying the show.

Whatever the outcome, their story actually sounds really interesting. They were on the run for four years, working various jobs around the country and staying one step ahead of the police.
