I recently had the opportunity to speak with someone on the inside at NBC’s hit show Heroes.
Some of you may or may not have seen the show, but it’s a runaway smash hit for the peacock network and it’s no surprise. Sci-Fi normally doesn’t find a home on major networks, so the occurence of Heroes showing up on NBC created a situation where viewers unfamiliar with the genre finally got to experience something unique.
But now, people are wondering if the show actually knows where it’s going… And I luckily had the opportunity to find out just where the journey will take the Heroes, the viewers and me.
Today marks a very special day here at WFME.
For while we normally use Monday’s to get back into the week, to wash our underwear and to finally finish off those antibiotics we’ve been meaning to finish up over the weekend — today we’ll be introducing a brand-new feature instead that we like to call WFME On:. Just what WFME will be chiming in on is anyone’s guess, and it’s bound to bring people together, worldwide, in a discussion of like-minded topics.
Today, WFME On: is all about not needing heroes.
Have you seen NBC’s breakout hit Heroes?
Besides the typical superheroes you’ll meet each week (the flying guy, the invincible chick, the seeing-into-the-future Nostradamus strung-out artist dude, the non-English speaking bender of space & time buddy and the I can read your mind police officer) you’ll also meet the one played by actress Ali Larter — a hot blonde named Niki Sanders whose superpower is… (wait for it)… muliple personality disorder.
Which only makes me immediately think of all the people living in the heart of tinsel town who have not-so-amazing superpowers of their own.
