Welcome to the watch post for the 5th episode of Heroes, "Hiros." I'm going to watch starting at 10pm to give those in other time zones a chance to play, but please feel free to come and chat about the episode at any time! So sorry to have skipped the "catch-up" post for episodes 2-4, it's been a wild weekend for me. Throughout the coming week, we'll still dig in with prompts for fic and meta, a favorites post, and discussion questions. Some changes might be made to the format depending on response this week, so hold tight for that. Also, October has come and Heroes has left Netflix. If you don't have the DVD's or a place where you like to stream from, send me a PM and I'll help out.

"HIROS" (s01e05)

summary: At "Future Hiro's" urging, Peter and Isaac come together and begin to formulate a plan. Nathan escapes from Mr. Bennet, meets Hiro, and realizes he's been blackmailed. While Claire recovers from the car accident unscathed as always, when her father becomes involved Brody isn't as fortunate. As Niki looks forward after becoming free of her debt to Mr. Linderman, a new menace crops up: her estranged ex-con husband, D.L. Matt uses his powers to give his wife a perfect day, but is later overwhelmed by them. Hiro and Ando realize they will need each other to complete their mission. (via heroeswiki)

This is a discussion post for "Genesis." I thought that today I'd use a prompt from our prompt post that I'd love to see some discussion for. Sound off in the comments!

How has the series aged for you? What stood the test of time and what didn't? Is there anything Heroes did that seemed really new at the time but that feels different to you now because other shows since then have riffed on similar themes/techniques?

This is a favorites post for S01E01. Copy the text from the box below, post your answers as a comment on this post, and let's talk favorites for the episode! It doesn't have to be favorites overall--in fact it's quite fun to be a bit fickle with these. Simply think of what struck you in "Genesis" and go!

This is a prompt post for the pilot episode of Heroes, "Genesis." Think of this as a place of inspiration for anything fannish! Fanfiction, meta, mixtapes, gif sets, good old fashioned conversation ... anything and everything is welcome. I'm going to post a few different prompts under the LJ cut, but please feel free to post prompts for anything that strikes you regarding S01E01 in the comments of this post.

PROMPTS!Collapse )

Welcome to our first watch post! This is a special one. 10 years ago on September 25, 2006 at 9pm EST, Heroes premiered to 14.3 viewers. Like sand through an hourglass, so goes blah blah blah. I'm going to liveblog starting at 9pm for full memorialization effect, but please feel free to come hang out and chat about the episode and/or pretty much anything else! Throughout the week, we'll dig in with prompts for fic and meta, a favorites post, and discussion questions.

"GENESIS" (s01e01)

summary: As Mohinder Suresh seeks answers about his father's recent death, ordinary people around the world begin to exhibit extraordinary abilities. Claire Bennet, a high school cheerleader, learns she is indestructible. Peter Petrelli dreams he can fly, and as he tries to put this to the test, his brother Nathan reveals something he never suspected. Niki, a single mother, fears she's losing her mind. Isaac discovers his drug-induced paintings are coming true. Hiro learns he can travel through time and space. (via heroeswiki)

If you wanna add a little alcohol into your rewatch nights, we're here to help. How I will most definitely be watching the pilot:

Below you can find a more detailed schedule of our "Best Of" rewatch following poll results. It was easy to group together the most requested episodes for seasons 1 and 2, but seasons 3 and 4 required a few mod-ly decisions as the votes were more scattered. Hope everyone feels represented and is ready to enjoy one hell of a Heroes 10th anniversary rewatch!


Yatta! The rewatch begins today! I will be posting a "Watch Post" for the pilot later on tonight, and also be on the lookout for a post that might inject a little more fun into the rewatch experience ;)

Because Heroes is a longer series, we're going to take a "best hits" approach to the rewatch. In this post we're polling our members to choose 10 episodes from each season and 5 episodes from the shortened second season. These chosen episodes will constitute the "best hits" and will be what each of the weekly rewatch posts are based around. Then, for any gaps in between the episodes, there will be a catch-up post for those purists who want to take on a full rewatch--or for the newbies who are watching for the first time!

I'd originally imagined these polls as a sort of battle where people extol various episode virtues and talk trash ... however, if I've learned one thing from our intro post, it's that the past 10 years have taken a toll and we don't remember a damn thing about this show! Episode descriptions from Heroes Wiki this way, y'all. Have fun!


DISCUSSION TOPIC: What do you actually remember? Scenes, lines, anything that has stuck with you over the years.

We're kicking off posting at heroesrewatch with a friending meme. Say hello to old friends and perhaps make some new ones! Part of the reason we decided to host this rewatch on LJ is because we miss the community aspect here. Please feel free to strike up conversations about your favorites, butt into other people's comment threads, whatever -- in short, have fun!

Simply copy the text from the box below and fill out as much or as little information as you like, then post your answers as a comment on this post!
