The problem is many of them are running on conflicting trajectories, so which ones are actually on a righteous path?Who are the heroes and who are the villains?

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.

Hiro has finally made his Heroes Reborn debut after spending some time trapped in a video game. While because of Masi Oka‘s contract with CBS for Hawaii Five-0, he‘s only in two more episodes -- "June 13th Part 1 and 2", which explores what happened on that fateful June 13 -- there is plenty coming up with Hiro, including reunions with other returning Heroes characters, including Jack Coleman‘s Noah Bennet, Cristine Rose‘s Angela Petrelli and Sendhil Ramamurthy‘s Mohinder Suresh.BuddyTV chatted with Oka to find out what‘s coming up for Hiro in these next two episodes, how his time in the video game has changed him, what‘s next on H50 and more. Read more »
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 »
Heroes Reborn finally answers many burning questions about what happened on June 13th, including why Tommy/Nathan and Malina are so important while clarifying Erica‘s plan and how far she‘s willing to go to succeed. In Heroes Reborn Season 1 Episode 7, "June 13th, Part One," Hiro and Noah go from the present day back to June 13th with the intention of stopping the Summit bombing and finding out what happened that day, including Claire‘s fate. The truth shocks them and sheds new light on the situation and disrupts their plan. 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 »
While watching Heroes Reborn I was surprised by how much I missed the show in its far too long absence. The multiple month long break was a very big mistake because "Send in the Clones" picks up right where "11:53 to Odessa" left off. It is not a natural break at all. Yet while the break was weird and the episode itself is kind of a mess, Heroes Reborn is still a lot of fun. It is confusing, chaotic and often riddled with logic problems but there is nothing quite like it on TV (at this moment) that moves as briskly as this series. Even a bad episode will no doubt have more than a few stellar moments and "Send in the Clones" is a perfect example. It is Heroes Reborn at its best and worst. Read more »
Heroes is going away...again. NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt has announced that the network is not going to bring back Heroes Reborn for a second season.  Read more »
"Company Woman" is the second-to-last Heroes Reborn ever. Now that the series has been cancelled, there should be an extra feeling of closure and finality to the proceedings. Sadly, the exact opposite seems to be happening. While I‘m sure the Heroes Reborn finale will have some kind of conclusion, "Company Woman" was a plodding and oddly-paced penultimate episode. Rather than focus mostly on Tommy and Malina‘s joint venture to save the world, Erica Kravid was given a spotlight episode. I suppose it‘s not the worst idea for Heroes Reborn to give their main villain a backstory but it should have happened at least three episodes ago. Read more »
When Heroes Reborn was first announced fans of the cancelled series hoped that the reboot/sequel would be able to capture the magic again. After years off the air, there was the sliver of a chance that Heroes Reborn could do what Heroes never could and make a satisfying subsequent to the story of season 1. Heroes Reborn  did manage to succeed, but only for one two-parter episode. Besides the honestly fantastic "June 13th, Part 1 and Part 2" Heroes Reborn was a convoluted mess. So where exactly did Heroes Reborn go so terribly wrong and in could any of the problems be fixed in the (now nonexistent) second season? Read more »
As the characters of Once Upon a Time prepare to go into uncharted waters and the Underworld, the series is delving into new territory too. An upcoming episode will explore a corner of Emma Swan‘s life that has yet to really be shown. TVLine reports that episode 20 of season 5, entitled "Firebrand" will see Emma in her life, post-Neal and pre-bail bondswoman. Rya Kihlstedt, who played the villain in Heroes Reborn, will also appear in the flashback sequence. Kihlestedt‘s character will have a strong connection to Emma and her story.  Read more »

When a TV show is canceled it can be hard to move on. TV fans get more attached to their favorite shows and stories because they spend so much time week in and out getting invested. The 2015-2016 season was a rough time for cancellation as many shows, both new and old, got canceled. Luckily there are plenty of new (or newish) shows that share more than a passing resemblance to some canceled favorites. Here are seven new shows worth checking out.  Read more »
Television revivals are all the rage. Recently it‘s been reported that NBC is planning potential reboots of The Office and Mad About You, following the success of Will and Grace‘s return. Is this a sign of more things to come in 2018, or the end of a trend?  Read more »
