I know this is a bit late, but David and I finally watched the two hour premiere of Heroes Reborn. We both had watched and loved the first season of Heroes, but had trouble getting back into it after the writers’ strike in season 2. So even though we did not continue watching it we were excited for what they might do restarting it. I have to say the two hour premiere did not disappoint us, but it did make us want to go back and watch Heroes again. The show really seemed to get back to what made the original great.
With our powers combined, we have been able to write a post about the show. It’s interesting… it’s a new show, but it’s also an old show. It’s new and exciting – and it’s a known quantity. Not the easiest thing to write about! Continue reading
The 2015 Fall TV premieres are almost upon us, which means that David and my shows are starting up again. It also means that new shows are premiering. The problem is always finding a balance between the shows that we are already watching and the shows that we are interested in trying out. Now we have started watching shows on Netflix that come out all at once so those end up with a slightly different watching timeline because we are not as worried about when they air.

Heroes had one of the best first seasons of a show in recent memory, which in part stands out because it had such a decline thereafter. I have always held it was the writer’s strike that killed the show, as season 2 seemed to be going somewhere, and then in a rush to finish the season, they took all the easy ways out. They lost most of their viewership then, Holly and I included.
That all said, I am cautiously optimistic at the thought of Heroes Reborn, the reboot of the Heroes world, and it has me reminiscing on the show. And thinking back to that driving character: Peter Petrelli. While the early seasons never really had a “team” of Heroes or anything quite like that, there was nonetheless the obvious choice for who would find them, and who would lead them. Peter Petrelli, the man whose power was the use the powers of those he met. The one who knew, unlike the others, that they weren’t alone – that they were in it together.
