Heroes News: Bryan Fuller Talks "Fugitives," Sylar Gets a Dad

Heroes News: Bryan Fuller Talks "Fugitives," Sylar Gets a Dad

Meet Sylar's daddy!
The latest rumblings about Heroes to come from Michael Ausiello's files have to do with a certain evildoer's father. Sylar's daddy will be played by John Glover, a.k.a. Lex Luthor's dad, Lionel, from Smallville. Ausiello's report includes this quote from an "insider:" "When Sylar meets his father, he's going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn't want to take. He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized."

Meanwhile, Bryan Fuller pipes up about his return to Heroes.
Having parted ways with Pushing Daisies, Bryan Fuller is coming back to work on Heroes. He recently opened up to Entertainment Weekly about this next "volume," "Fugitives," which starts February 2. He acknowledges that the series has gone a bit off-course and says the key to righting everything is to "put a face back on the drama. You have to save something with a face; otherwise you don’t understand what you’re caring about. . . We need to get back into a character place, because that's where this story started: Very clean, superhero metaphors to everyday life."

Frankly, that's. . . awesome.
Fuller's ideas and plans for the future are so comforting to see after the slightly rocky time the show has had recently. He gives a few more hints at what we can expect next year: "It really is a fresh start. All of the characters are back in their real lives. You see Peter as a paramedic. Claire is looking for colleges. We get away from the world of formulas and quasi-magic. . . People will die. And some will return. Matt's wife [Janice] comes back. We'll find out what happens when you have a superbaby. We're also going to tell fewer stories per episode."

Well I say, woo-hoo! Everything's coming up Heroes. Fans of the show, what do you think?

Thank God Bryan Fuller is coming back. I love Pushing Daisies, but I am losing interest in Heroes. When I can find more things to make fun of each week than to be really interested in, that's a bad sign. Hopefully Fuller can bring it back on track. Otherwise it definitely won't make our TIVO list for 2009.

Awesome! maybe this will get the show back on track cuz right now I'm not too pleased at where it is & have been tempted to stop watching many times.

::sigh:: ok. I will stick around until I see some of the fruits of Brian Fuller's labors. But I swear, this is the last chance I am giving Heroes.

sounds like a plan to me! I was just thinking about how horribly off-course the show has been latey, how the characters have become so 'superhuman' and less relatable as just everyday people with extraordinary abilities. I am sick of this 'villians' chapter, the plot has gone absolutely nowhere for the last eight or so episodes. it's like a soap opera, the storyline is moving so slowly. but I am willing to stick to it, because heroes was once a fantastic show and I think the potential is still there.

And I really only gave up last week actually! I was not going to watch it except my boyfriend insisted. This really is good news, at least someone knows where they have gone wrong. Everything he said is exactly what I've been thinking since the end of last season.

We'll see. I only stopped watching a few weeks ago. I can probably be brought back into the fold...

If they had done this in season two, they wouldn't have lost me. As it is... too little too late, I'm not coming back.
