Beaming Beeman Episode 21… by Damien

Another Greg Beeman blog and this week he talks about Hard Part and also some funny pictures…

Episode 21 is here. This one is a little bit of a quieter episode of HEROES. The key to understanding it’s place in the season is to realize that, episode 21, 22 and 23 are three parts of one story. It fact it’s less of a trilogy, and more like, Act one, Act two and Act three of a film. So, by the nature of that design, this episode is a little slower and spends it’s time getting the players into position. Next week cranks it up to a simmer and then we boil over in the finale.

John Badham came back to direct his second episode this season. Besides being a legendary director, he is a true gentleman. He is thoughtful, gracious and he grasps everything very quickly. On set he concentrates on performance direction foremost, and the actors all quite like him. Actually John wrote an interesting book about directing actors for screen. It’s called “I’ll Be In My Trailer,” published by Michael Wiese Productions.

Beaming Beemans 5 Years… by Damien

After a new episode of Heroes brings a new Beaming Beeman blog and today he talks about what he says is the best episode of Heroes to date which I can agree with last night was probably the best hour of telly ever!!!…anyway heres an excerpt from it…

A couple of other points of interest. We had to find an oval office set for Nathan’s scenes as president in the future. The set we used was the one built for WEST WING. I always assumed we’d just go to Warner Brother’s studios for the day, but it turned out that the set had been dissembled. So we had to drive it over and rebuild it. A complicated endeavor.

Also, I think Ruth Ammon and the art department did a beautiful job with the ground zero set, particularly the eternal flame portion of it. The VFX crew at Stargate deserve a nod as well because they did great set extensions. But the best part was that because we built the set in the parking lot outside our offices – it provided a surprise opportunity for Tim Kring, Allan Arkush, Jeph Loeb, Tim Sale (the famous comic-book artist who creates all of Isaac’s work) and I to all be together. We are almost never in the same place at the same time!

‘Heroes’ worship… by Damien

Of course tonight is the return but the Baltimore Sun posted a little article well its big if you read it and its all about the appeal of Heroes far from the TV i.e the way they have appealed to the Internet following with storylines and inside storys…

That kind of excitement and loyalty makes Heroes by far the hottest new series of the network season. Starring a cast led by Masi Oka and Hayden Panettiere, it tells the story of seemingly ordinary young people who discover that they possess extraordinary powers – and set out to save the world. Still in its first season, the show attracts a weekly average of 14.8 million viewers.

What really sets Heroes apart from its competition, however, is a slew of online extras, including an Internet comic strip featuring its characters. And while the TV series went on hiatus, its comic strip did not. So great is the success of the drama’s on-air and online components – blending old media and new – that some analysts are calling the show a model for TV in the Internet age.

“The popularity of Heroes as a prime-time TV series is impressive enough in its own right, but I think the big story, the stroke of brilliance, is the way that NBC married the interactivity of online graphic novels with television,” says Dianne Lynch, new media expert and dean of communications at Ithaca College.
