It may be a ways off (OK, maybe more than a ways off considering it doesnt come out until Christmas), but you have to see this teaser trailer for the next of the Star Trek installments. If you havent heard about it, Losts J.J. Abrams will be directing Star Trek XI, which chronicles the early years of Kirk and company (and, side note, Zachary Quinto from Heroes is playing Spock in this version). Even if youre not a Trekkie, the scene of the U.S.S. Enterprise being built is pretty awesome.
The four Heroes covers
Four Heroes collector covers. Five superstar artists. Meet the creators of this week’s "comic book" look. Cover No. 1 (Kensei, Hiro, Ando): Jim Lee"TV Guide is a cornerstone of pop culture, so doing a cover for you guys is a real honor," says Lee. Hey, we’re honored, too! A true comics legend, Lee is currently illustrating DC Comics’ All-Star Batman & Robin and drew the acclaimed Batman arc "Hush" (written by Heroes co-executive producer Jeph Loeb). He openly admits he does not follow Heroes, though he did try. "I downloaded the entire first season from iTunes to my Apple TV, which, for some reason, played the episodes backwards," Lee says. "So there I am watching the season finale thinking it’s the first episode of the series and I’m going, ‘Oh, my god, this storytelling is soo confusing and revolutionary — how d

Episode Recap: "Out Of Time"Welcome to November Sweeps. The writers are on strike, NBC is green and Heroes is back!If youre reading this, there is a good chance you are a regular at the Heroes TV Guide blog. Lets get right to it.Last week, I mentioned Mr. Bennets sloppy handy work in Ukraine. I knew he would get caught! He also destroyed the remaining paintings. Two of which, came true in tonights episode. The battle between Kensei and Hiro and Peters distraught first look at human extinction. Many of you should give yourselves pats on the back! As I watched tonights episode so many of your predictions and comments in the past weeks came true. Especially, when Kensei turned out to be Adam Monroe! So, Kensei/Adam and Claire are immortal. I think they remain forever young at the age they realize they have powers. It looks like we will never see Claire at happy hour. Who liked this episode as much as I did? I know its been slow...

Episode Recap: The LineHeroes has never made me lose interest, but it did get off to a slow start. I knew tonight would be a good episode. OK, I hoped tonight would be a great episode. It was the lead-in to November sweeps. However, I didnt want to set my expectations too high. Ive noticed a growing trend with network television: they build up the months of November, February and May for Nielsen ratings, and then leave us hanging. Sometimes, the episodes that air during those sweeping months live up to the abundance of promos, previews and annoying scroll lines under everything you watch. Other times, a ferry crashes and we are left with the letters WTF on our minds. That being said, lets recap.Weve all been through high school hell, and Ive watched the genius of Tina Fey's Mean Girls, but do people like the cheerleading captain really exist? If so, then she got what she deserved. (When she wrote the number of pounds to lose on the girls' f...

Episode Recap: "Fight or Flight"What would you do if you were faced with your greatest fear?It was around this time last season that Eden sacrificed herself. I was shocked when she fought against Sylar and managed to take her own life before he could steal her power. Tonight, Ricky sacrificed himself as well. He may not have stuck his finger into a socket on his own, but he did lie to protect Peter and his sister. In the end, he paid with his life. He literally was toast." So, Peter and Elle have met before. Also, the box? A passport and ticket to Montreal! Thats it? I really thought there would be more to it.I am a Veronica Mars fan. So, I was psyched to finally see Kristen Bell tonight. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed. Maybe its my own fault; my expectations were too high. I know her character is going to get interesting, but when? The list of questions continues: Who is her father? Is she good, evil or confused? Do she and/or her father work for The Company? Wh...

Will this be the last we see of Mr. Nakamura? George Takei by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Four Months Later...." (September 24, 2007)Of all the shows I follow, this was the premiere that had me fidgeting in my cubicle all day. I have never missed an episode. I nearly fell out of my chair when I received an email this past summer, saying that I would be the new Heroes blogger. This blog is important to TV Guide and Heroes fans alike. I myself used to read it every Tuesday morning before and after meeting my co-workers around the Heroes water-cooler. Needless to say, I hope I live up to all of your expectations, because this show just gets better and better!First off, the symbol. You know what Im talking about - the RNA strand that pops up everywhere. Tonight, it was painted in red on Mrs. Petrelli and Mr. Nakamuras (may he rest in hero peace) torn photos, drawn by Molly, fashioned around Peters (he lives!) neck and carved within the handle of the famous Kensei/Hiro sword. So, what exactly does it mean? One known fact: When you receive a p...
Question: You hinted last week that Zachary Quinto's role as Spock in the Star Trek feature might mean "losing Sylar for a chunk of the season." Are they killing Sylar off? Or will he return when Quinto is done with Star Trek?
Answer: I think what you're asking is, "Will Spock kill Sylar?!" And the answer is no. Quinto will return to Heroes after wrapping Trek — and mostly likely just in time for the season finale in April.
