Volume 3 Will Be Awesome… by Damien

Villains

TV Guide sat down with Tim Kring after the finale and spoke about Volume 3 “Viillains” and said theres alot more to come…

Tim Kring had an exclusive interview with TV Guide discussing the Generations Finale (Powerless). Kring says that the fates of Niki and Nathan have not been decided and are up in the air, while Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will now return for Volume 3.

Initially Quinto was supposed to miss most of the Vol. 3 production because of his role in the new JJ Abrams Star Trek, but the writer’s strike delaying Vol. 3 allowed for the re-write to have Sylar return earlier than expected.

Additionally, Kring mentions that Vol. 3 will have a “legion” of villains that will possibly join forces against the Heroes.

Here are the details:

The fate of Nathan, who was shot during a TV press conference, and of Niki, who may have died in an abandoned building explosion, are “up in the air and will be determined when we come back after the strike,” Kring says. “Things are fairly dire for them both.” Immortal Adam was teleported by Hiro (Masi Oka) into a coffin buried in the same Japanese cemetery where his father Kaito (George Takei), who was slain by Adam, is also buried. “It’s poetic justice to have Adam end up in the same graveyard as Kaito,” Kring notes. “We’ve given the audience no reason to believe that Adam can figure a way to get out of there. The fact that he can live forever makes this the most gruesome of internments. If this happened to any of us, at least we’d know we’d soon have the mercy of death. Not here.”

Witchy, bitchy Elle, who wound up saving the lives of Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy), Maya (Dania Ramirez) and little Molly (Adair Tishler), clearly sparked when Mohinder called her a hero. “Kristen Bell gave us the perfect reaction in that scene,” Kring says. “For a moment there, Elle sees she’s been given an opportunity to use her powers in a good way. And she absolutely likes the sound of that word ‘hero.'” Not to worry. There are plenty more baddies coming after the writers’ strike concludes. In fact, the title of Volume 3 — “Villains” — says it all.

“We’ve introduced a cadre of them over the course of the show and we’re going to see them rise up,” Kring says. “Just as the heroes have found each other to save the world, the villains will do the same with the opposite intent.” And their numbers may be legion. “The Company has catalogued many of these people over the years. There may be more of them down in that basement than we have alluded to so far.”

Will Sylar (Zachary Quinto) be their ringleader? After being electro-zapped by Elle, Mister Eyebrows escaped to a back alley and skeevily injected himself with Claire’s (Hayden Panettiere) blood. Then, in a wicked salute to Popeye, he telekinetically grabbed a can of spinach and said, “I’m back!”

“Sylar getting his power back does not bode well for our heroes,” says Kring, who admits there is one upside to the writers’ strike: Originally, Quinto was not going to be available for much of Volume 3 because of his commitment to the new Star Trek film. Now, with the strike dragging on, he’ll likely be done playing young Spock by the time Heroes returns to production.

Sylar and Elle

Greg Beeman posted a new post to correspond with the Fall Finale and its a good post make sure y’all check that stuff out…

Sadly, here at the HEROES offices we’ve dropped below a skeleton crew to a nobody crew, and I got stuck doing all the computer uploading, research and spell/fact checking alone. If there are more mispellings and fact mistakes than usual, forgive me!

So… Tonight our eleventh episode aired. It was written by Jeph Loeb and directed by Allan Arkush, both of who did their usual outstanding job! And I hope you all agree it is a fitting end to this segment of the season.

This time I thought I would do something a little different. I’ve been meaning to interview our composers Wendy Melovin and Lisa Coleman since way back since last season. I’ve actually tried to do it several times, but our schedules have been notoriously out of sync with each other. Now we finally hooked up.

The music of HEROES is I think, one of its most important elements. It is moody and ethereal and both unsettling and uplifting all at once. The instrumentation and orchestration are highly unusual. There’s also a lot of it. Two or three weeks before the show is on the air, we have a spotting session, where the producers Wendy and Lisa go through the picture and specify where we want music and what emotional effect we want out of the music. At the end of those sessions we always joke, saying, “well, this time there were only five music cues. All of act one. All of act two. All of act 3. All of Act 4 and all of act 5.” By the way, that’s A LOT. Thirty to thirty five minutes of a forty-two minute show. I’d guess that’s maybe double an average TV show. And Wendy and Lisa will then have, frequently, less than a week to compose and record all of it.

Heroes Ratings Rose… by Damien

Ratings Rose

According to SyFy Portal Heroes Ratings went up from Monday…

NBC’s only real bright light shined a little brighter Monday earning a 6.7 rating/10 share according to Fast National ratings from Nielsen Media Research. That is up slightly over the 6.6 earned the previous week, and was enough to take third place behind comedies on CBS and “Samantha Who?” on ABC, but was able to win the hour in the key demographic of adults 18 to 49.

“Chuck,” the lead-in to “Heroes,” is doing better as well, according to Zap2it. That show pulled in a 4.9/7, enough to tie for second in households with “How I Met Your Mother” and “Big Bang Theory,” all of which followed well behind “Dancing With the Stars, which had more than three times the audience with a 16.0/23. All those shows beat reruns on Fox and whatever The CW decided to show.

“Journeyman” did nothing to try and save itself, coming in at a 3.8/6, a 40 percent audience drop from its lead-in. It finished well behind “CSI: Miami” on CBS and “October Road” on ABC, although it did slip ahead of the ABC series in total number of viewers.

For the night, NBC finished third with a 5.2/8, but finished just behind CBS and ABC in the key 18-to-49 age demographic.

Fast Nationals usually provide a snapshot of what Americans are watching by pulling numbers from the top urban markets that includes both live viewing and same-day timeshifted viewing. A rating point generally represents more than 1.1 million households while the share indicates the percentage of televisions turned on that was tuned to the specific program. These numbers typically shift when final ratings are issued.
