Heroes Reborn, Ep. 1.03, “Under the Mask”

Heroes Reborn, Season 1, Episode 3, “Under the Mask

Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey

Directed by Greg Beeman

Airs on Thursdays at 8 pm (Et) on NBC

Family is as important to the universe of Heroes as Primatech or people inexplicably coming back to life. The Petrellis and the Nakamuras and the Bennets and the Sureshs had grand lineages that went into controlling the evos, exploiting them, and understanding them. This focus grounds the series: We all have family and understand the various pains and strains that those relationships and exceptions generate in life. This also theoretically gives the show ample opportunity to mine and explore new conflicts. But as was seen ten or so years ago, only so many times can Heroes have Peter and Nathan stand at opposite ends of a crisis only to come together at the end, with one of them scarifying themselves, before the audience gets actively angry at the show. »

Heroes Reborn episodes 1 & 2 review: Brave New World & Odessa

25 September 2015 4:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Heroes Reborn's back-to-basics approach gets the new series off to a strong start, despite a crowded overly expositional opening...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Brave New World & 1.2 Odessa

The first season of Tim Kring’s original Heroes was special. I came away from each episode wishing that I too was an ‘Evo’ (they’re called that now apparently), imagining how exciting it would be to inhabit the same world of secretive paper companies and teleporting swordsmen. Subsequent seasons didn’t have quite the same impact; having a power began to seem like quite a lot of hassle and frankly, not worth the bother. The remit for Heroes Reborn then is quite clear: deliver something approaching the quality of the first season with its rich characters and slick converging storyline or face the derision of fans whose patience and good will for this franchise is on life support.

Heroes Reborn, Ep. 1.01-1.02, “Brave New World” and “Odessa”

Heroes Reborn, Season 1, Episode 1, “Brave New World”

Season 1, Episode 2, “Odessa”

Written by Tim Kring

Directed by Matt Shakman (“Brave New World”), Greg Beeman (“Odessa”)

Airs on Thursdays at 8 pm (Et) on NBC

Every new show has to work to sell the viewer on why it deserves to exist instead of, say, a new season of Hannibal. We are busy people with lives and limited time to commit to a series that is either going to bore us or break our hearts. In this era of Peak TV, Fomo is real and it is crippling. So networks have figured out that is easier to greenlight a nostalgia series (Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Fuller House) than a new series. It has a built in audience! It’ll automatically generate headlines! Though NBC appears to be making a similar decision with Heroes Reborn, deciding to bring back a series that many soured on »
