Heroes Cast

Hey "Heroes," it's coming. In the episode's title, 'it' could be a number of things. 1.) The upcoming power-draining eclipse being foretold on walls and rocks, in sketches and in comic books. 2.) The inevitable collision of good and bad super groups that was enticingly set up by the slow-motion camera at the end of the episode. Arthur, Knox, Flint, Tracy, Sylar and Elle vs. Angela, Matt, powerless Peter, Nathan, Daphne and Claire. 3.) The end of the show.

With series-low ratings last week, even stalwart fans can see "Heroes" rushing toward a cliff. Oh who can save it from falling into the abyss of beloved shows canceled too soon (recent inhabitants include "Jericho" and "Firefly")? Arthur Petrelli, the most vile of the villains, could be the savior. He seems to have contact with all of the heroes and villains. Everything is swirling around him, and one of the things this show has needed is something of a center. An evil through line to focus on now that Sylar is an empathic power stealer (and where did this come from?!).

Love is a battlefield. No, Pat Benatar didn't have a sonic scream, but she may have been a precog for "Heroes" story lines. Matt loves Daphne, Nathan doesn't love Arthur, Elle kind of loves Sylar, Tracy loves Tracy, Uncle Peter loves Claire, Arthur and Angela have some kind of love in there somewhere, and Hiro loves waffles and comic books (wow, me too!). Weirdly enough, all of this is what's shaping the show.

What really lurks beneath The Haitian's cool exterior on Heroes? Jimmy Jean-Louis tells TVGuide.com that more details will emerge about the mysterious man who manipulates memories.

"We will get to know him in Haiti, get to know his brother, get to know him," Jean-Louis promised during a launch party for Gears of War 2. But he also lamented how little we still actually know about the Haitian as a person. "Does he have a girl? Does he have a few girls? Kids?" Jean-Louis asked.

SO MUCH television, so little time:

* I've never been one of the "Heroes" haters, but the NBC drama's on the verge of losing me.

The last time I felt this way was when I finally stopped buying "Superman" comics as a kid because the number of parallel universes encompassed by DC Comics had outstripped my admittedly low-level math skills.

The credits roll as the latest TV season premiere comes to an end. On the internet, however, the debate is just beginning. After tens of thousands of views and hundreds of posts, fansites across the web remain divided. The web might offer television fans an opportunity to come together, discuss, and even build Facebook applications around their favourite programmes - but it can't make them agree on their relative merits.

So it's perhaps surprising that such contradictory fan input is increasingly influencing how plots develop. At this year's Comic-Con, the annual US pop culture convention, Tim Kring, the creator of Heroes, responded to fan criticism of his show by admitting he had made errors. Much to fans' displeasure, season two of the cult hit saw new characters bogging down the storyline while old favourites took detours to medieval Japan. In an attempt to make amends, Kring said, the season-three pilot was being shown early. "We made a mistake," Kring told Entertainment Weekly earlier in the year. "We've heard the complaints - and we're doing something about it."

Kring's mea culpa may in fact be only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to responding to fans' demands.
