Powerless 1

Whenever superheroes and supervillains throw down, there’s going to be collateral damage. Sometimes there’s more, sometimes it’s less, but at best we’re talking about millions if not billions in property damage and countless ruined days for ordinary civilians unlucky enough to live in a superpowered universe. While the superheroes get to return to Asgard or hole up in their secret Batcaves or whatever it is they do, these folks are left to sweep up the dust. Now a new comedy promises to tell their stories.

NBC has given a series order to Powerless, a DC Comics comedy about an insurance claims adjuster (Vanessa Hudgens) who has had it with the crime-fighting superheroes messing up her daily commute. Geek favorites Danny Pudi and Alan Tudyk also star, along with Christina Kirk. The show itself won’t premiere for another several months, but the first photos have arrived to give you a little taste of this non-superhero superhero series.  Read More »

‘Heroes Reborn’ Is Getting Killed Off

Heroes Reborn Season

Back in 2006, long before superhero shows had saturated every corner of your TV guide, Heroes was a smash success for NBC. Critics loved it, and audiences adored it. But the wobbly end to season one portended dark times ahead, and not just within the narrative. Season two was a confusing mess mercifully cut short by the WGA strike, and by the time Heroes finally limped to a finish with its fourth season in 2010, it was a mere shadow of its former self.

Then in 2014, NBC decided to bring it back from the dead. Never mind that viewers had abandoned the original show in droves, or that even the few fans left at the bitter end seemed more relieved than disappointed to see it go. The franchise came back to television last year as Heroes Reborn, but was never quite able to recapture the magic of that fantastic first season. And so Heroes is coming to an end once more. The network says it has no plans to make a Heroes Reborn season 2.  Read More »
