Heroes Reborn picks up five years after the events of the Heroes Season 4 finale with an episode of the same title, "Brave New World." When we last visited this world, Claire Bennett revealed the truth about her abilities letting everyone in on the secret that some people had abilities. The following four years brought a peaceful coexistence between people without powers and those with powers called EVOs. That peace ended in Odessa on June 13th when a terrorist bomb killed many during a rally at Primatech. The story picks up a year after the attack with EVOs are being targeted, captured and killed. Read more »

One aspect of the original Heroes series that I‘ve enjoyed in the story‘s return is the voiceover. As Heroes Reborn, "The Needs of the Many," opened, we were presented with a profound, yet poignant question about what is a person‘s purpose and how does it develop.As the hour played out, we saw memories of joy and existences of sorrows. Love, loss, achievements and suffering.  All of those experiences have prepared those who will be called on to save the world. Will they be able to find it within themselves to save the world? We‘ll have to wait to find out. Read more »
The end of the world is coming and it‘s terrifying, though perhaps even more disturbing is the fact that Erica and her followers are looking forward to the cataclysmic event.

After a slow start, Heroes Reborn has hit the gas hard. Sure, a lot of Heroes Reborn doesn‘t make a whole lot of sense. There‘s an explanation given for Miko‘s powers in "Game Over" and it confuses me even more about what this girl can actually do. Yet I find it‘s usually best to just turn my brain off while watching Heroes Reborn because then the show is actually a fun popcorn ride; this episode more than others. "Game Over" brought a lot of the characters together for the first time and delivered big moments. There were even some (very) shocking deaths. Read more »

I love time travel. I‘m that rare breed of nerd that is completely turned off to most types of sci-fi. Unless it‘s in space and involves the words "stars" and "wars" (in that exact order) I‘m disinterested. Robots and aliens are simultaneously terrifying and boring to me. Yet, time travel is one sci-fi staple that I legitimately love. I tell you this to let you know upfront that I‘m already pre-disposed to like "June 13th Part Two," the second episode in Heroes Reborn‘s time travel story. Not to mention that the "June 13th Part One was without a doubt Heroes Reborn‘s strongest episode ye,t as it was the most focused and exciting hour yet. Thankfully Heroes Reborn didn‘t disappoint in the second part of the June 13th saga. Well, except for the very final moments of the episode, but more on that at the end of this absolutely stuffed recap.   Read more »
I was pretty skeptical about Heroes Reborn. It seemed like a very lazy cash-in on the current trend of superhero TV. It was an opinion that wasn‘t really swayed after several episodes. Now I‘ve begun to recognize Heroes Reborn as something more and it has become one of my favorite new shows of Fall. Yet for Heroes Reborn rebounds into positivity, they have made a terrible error. An error involving the character of Quentin Frady and his new allegiances. Read more »
After a really strong time travel two-parter, Heroes Reborn returned to the present. The results were mixed. The story lines that benefited from the time travel antics continue to be strong. In many cases they improved, especially the Tommy stuff. Heroes Reborn is fighting a losing battle in other cases though. Joanne is still horrible and Carlos seems pretty irrelevant. Nine episodes in, it‘s better to just focus on the good and ignore the bad. Thankfully the good far outnumbers the bad now on Heroes Reborn. Read more »
Tommy and Malina‘s reunion was so close on last week‘s episode, but they were pushed even further apart on Heroes Reborn Season 1 Episode 10, "11:53 to Odessa." Has Tommy truly been convinced by Erica? Or does he have doubts? By the end of the hour, he‘s out to save the world, but the answer of which plan he will follow is unknown. Read more »
