6 Clips from the HEROES Villains Premiere

     September 16, 2008

I think we can all agree that the second season of “”Heroes” was less than perfect. In fact, let’s call the season what it was – terrible. The first 6 episodes could have been done in half the time and only by the end of the season did the show even come close to finding its way.

Thankfully, the first hour of season three is 100% better than anything from season two…and I’d even go as far to say that it’s an excellent episode. The premiere does a great job of explaining how last year’s finale happened, and it does a great job of setting up the upcoming season. And that’s all you can hope for in a premiere.

The episode is so well done that NBC not only showed it to 7,000 screaming fans at Comic-Con this summer, but they’ve sent out hundreds of copies to the media and online sites in an attempt to promote the season and show how “Heroes” has improved. And you know what….their strategy worked as here I am singing the praises of the show.

Of course the season could be a big letdown…but I’ve spoken to a few people involved with the production and they’ve told me season three has a ton of action. And after the boring plots of season two…that’s a welcome change.

Anyhow, here are 6 clips from the first hour of season three. Remember, the premiere is two hours next Monday night.

Clip 1 – Future Claire holds Future Peter at gunpoint

Clip 2 – Hiro in his father’s office running the company

Clip 3 – Nathan is rushed to the hospital

Clip 4 – Sylar breaks into Claire’s home

Clip 5 – Suresh wants to give up his research but Maya won’t let him

Clip 6 – Hiro meets Daphne
