If anyone's interested, I've posted links to all the recent interviews in NYC by Masi Oka (Hiro) and Milo Ventimiglia (Peter) and their signing at the NBC Experience Store over at my LJ here (http://balikpulang.livejournal.com/10239.html). Interviews were done with The Today Show, The View, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, TV Guide's Mike Auseillo and CW11 (formerly known as WB) New York Morning News.

Masi also featured on a guest spot with Ali Larter (Jessica/Niki) during the Macy*s Thanksgiving Parade. Select Part 4 from this link (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12495628) and move to about 2/3rds of the way in for the weather update (i.e. their Heroes guest spot with Al Roker. Additional screen caps can be found here (http://www.newsblab.com/iam_a_heroes_geek.htm).

Non-spoilery, general topics were discussed. Gives you fun insight into the actors playing some of the more popular heroes on the show.

The entire cast of Heroes drew illustrations of their characters to help raise funds for Greg Grunberg's (Matt) Pediatric Epilepsy Project (http://www.seenon.com/auction) which he started to support his oldest son. The organisation was formed with a single, all-important mission: to raise funds, provide financial support and increase community awareness to help sustain the Division of Pediatric Neurology at UCLA. Bidding has now closed, with the highest bids going to the most popular heroes - Hayden's Claire, Masi's Hiro, Ali's Jessica/Niki and Milo's Peter.

All the illustrations and bids can be seen at this site (http://nbcauction.auction.seenon.com/viewcat.php?category=52).

I guess Claire and Hiro are tied as the most popular heroes with their illustrations tied at $915

Yup... And with Ali and Milo in #3 and #4 respectively, I wonder what that says about Heroes' viewer demographic? Mainly geeks and guys (ps geek in the nice Hiro way) with a handful of mid-20 to 30s gals?

To Heroes fans, does that mean that ep 10 is the last ep for a while, and when are they airing the second half?

Actually, Ep 11 (Fallout) to be aired next week (Dec 4) is the mid-season finale. Series resumes on NBC Jan 22 with Ep 12. For NBC, one whole season consists of 22 episodes.

Well, I am glad we'll be getting another ep before the hiatus. But Jan. 22 before it starts up again? I don't know if I can last that long.;)

It's even worse for SG-1 fans! :jack_new_anime05: At least the "global" premiere of SGA has started.

Also, I believe NBC will continue to publish the 9th Wonders Comics (or Graphic Novels) every week right through the hiatus, possibly introducing new heroes to the fold....

I've heard of these- does anyone have a link, and is the complete series still available for viewing? Or do they take them down each week? :confused:

Maybe a link to these is something that should be added to the list of links and sites in the other thread.

Unlike the episode rewinds, all the comics are still up here - http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/. I think this was linked on one of prion's threads...

SG-1 had 22 per season back before they were doing two shows at once.

Yet another "Why I Love Heroes" article, but one that gave me (a comic fan married to a comic fan) much glee and appreciation for how comic books are "a cool, exciting, adult form of storytelling" when they successfully "suspend your disbelief, believably." Check out his Five Things This Comic Geek Loves Most About Heroes. Article here - http://www.sptimes.com/2006/12/03/Floridian/__Heroes___strength_i.shtml

SPOILER ALERT: Beware big spoilers in the middle for Ep 11 (Fallout).

For any newbies living in the US, NBC has decided to post ALL the episodes from the season on their website. Perfect time to spread the word! It's not only legal - it's free!

http://www.nbc.com/Video/rewind/full_episodes/heroes.shtml

Of course, us non-US fans will do our own version of viral marketing....

Huh! I'm a fair piece older than 20 or 30--I guess I don't fit their target demographic....

Wow! Thanks for the great article. I've been a comic book fan since the early 1980's (it just kills me that I sold a whole box of comics for 5 bucks at a garage sale in the late seventies).
