With the writer’s strike still in full effect, some of you might have taken refuge into reruns of Heroes. Especially with the slump that is Volume 2, you might need something to make it a bit more “fun” ;-) . Yes, I know not everybody agrees with my opinion on Volume 2, but I truly find it a disappointment compared to the first season. It’s not that it’s bad, horrible, painful, etc, etc; it’s just that it could have been so much greater than it was. I’m just annoyed with the wasted potential. However, Volume 3 seems promising and I can’t wait for the writer’s strike to end. Btw, a tip to any Heroes fan, get the Volume 1 comic; it seriously is a must-have. 

Anyhow, have a gulp/shot/glass, whenever you see:

  1. Parkman using his telepathic, mind-controlling abilities (when you hear the “whisper” music).
  2. Sylar acting creepy (when you hear the clock ticking music).
  3. The whiny twins getting all black teary eyed again.
  4. Hiro using his power (the I-am-concentrating-hard face).
  5. Oh, why not: Any Hero using their power.
  6. Mr. Muggles!
  7. Hiro pushing his glasses back up.
  8. Jessica appears. 
  9. Mohinder saying “evolution”, “mankind”, or “cure”.
  10. The Helix symbol.
  11. Noah Bennett saying “Claire”.

Any expansions on these rules?

Episode 8: “Yeah, I can’t believe it’s me either.”No, sadly this isn’t a video with The Muscles from Brussels and Mr Ponytail together, but if we’re lucky enough (and the actors are dumb enough willing) we just might well expect such a movie coming soon. Moviehole reports

“Van Damme vs. Seagal” is a spoof comedy making fun of action heroes Van Damme and Seagal, both living in the Hollywood hills jealously trying to make each others’ life miserable – until a real nuclear threat arises and forces them to combine their action hero powers. 

He continues though with: 

Alas – I’m guessing, but I think it’s pretty safe to say I’d be correct with my supposition – it won’t feature the real ‘Muscles for Brussels’ or the true Ponytailed Cook, but the film still sounds like it’ll be worth a look. 

I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that both actors might consider taking up these roles. Seriously, what better way to kick-start their already dead careers? And, it’s not as if they’ve never made fun of themselves before, right? Here, take a look at these commercials. The first is Steven Seagal for Mountain Dew, the second is JCVD for World of Warcraft.
