"Heroes" Writers Are Letting Us Help

"Heroes" Writers Are Letting Us Help

A while back, I told you "Heroes" fans about one of the newest super people, Hana, known as "Wireless" for her ability to intercept digital information. By going to the Primatech website and filling out a "job application," I opted to receive text messages from Hana in which she conveys "secret" information about the Company. Thus, while we are piecing together the mysteries of the show, so is Hana — and she's providing us with clues to boot.

Today, I received an email saying Hana will need my help next Monday, April 9. That day, according to a new NBC press release, Hana will send viewers directions about how to help her, and the fans' actions will somehow influence the next episode of "Heroes":

Starting April 9th, Hana ... will enlist fans to help with her plans to thwart Linderman's plots. The top-secret online activity will actually interact with the on-air story and will pay off in the Monday, April 23rd episode, when "Heroes" returns to the NBC lineup.

How cool is this? If you're a die-hard fan of the show and haven't yet signed up to receive the "top-secret" notices, you should do so now! What if something you write to Hana ends up on the show? Let's discuss when you

This kind of interactivity isn't completely new — the Hanso Foundation website from "Lost," for example, led fans to new clues. (And, by the way, the site has been updated to include some new, eerie information.) Yet the idea of influencing the actual content on "Heroes" is taking it a new level. What do you think about this interactive project?

Hey Karla Sugar, in that same press release, the NBC folks say they're soliciting viewers' videos in which fans talk about their theories because they're going to use some videos in promotional spots for the show. I don't think the writers will be referring to the videos for content ideas... though I guess you never know!

I saw on the NBC/Heroes website that they're inviting fans to submit their predictions about what will happen next/how this season will end. If they're taking suggestions, I am VERY leery of the idea. I'd like to think their writers had a plan, and aren't going to trust the masses to deliver them.

I just recently got into this show (a couple weekends ago I had the flu and so when I wasnt sleeping I was watching Heroes episodes on and its so good! And I too love that they are doing the interactive thing like LOST. Signed up at the Primatech website, fun stuff. Also, I hear that one of the heores is going to die in the first episode back on the 23rd! Aaack!
