Spock and His Party Tricks

It just so happens that the other day I re-watched the J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek for the first time since seeing it in the theaters. I watched it on blu-ray and I have to say that I liked it this time around just as much as I did when I first saw it in the theaters. Watching it again made me realize how perfect the casting choice for Spock really was.

Speaking of Spock, Glenn Jones of Glennz Tees just released his newest parody tee featuring Spock and his familiar hand gesture. Live long and …. party? The shirt is called Party Trick and from the looks of the design it looks like our seemingly emotionless friend is up to some tomfoolery. Know a Trekkie in need of a Christmas present? This will make for the perfect gift!

Heroes: Season 3 Rumor Roundup (Part 2)

As Heroes Season 3 inches closer to its September premier the rumors continue to flow, and if you’ve read Part 1 of the Heroes Season 3 Rumor Round Roundup than you know that there are already a ton of rumors floating around. Here are the latest:

E! recently reported that in the future “Sylar has a four-year-old named Noah (which has to be in memory or honor of our Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G.), and according to Zachary Quinto, Sylar’s baby mama is “silver-tongued and alive. I don’t know what else to say. I can’t give that away—it’s too good.”

Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) will be back despite being shot (presumedly) to death in the finale of Heroes Season 2. He discusses his role in Season 3 here:

And here’s Nathan’s promo poster:

In a recent interview with Pop Wrap (NY Post), Dana Davis reveals that Monica’s storyline “storyline wraps up fairly quickly” in Season 3. Thank goodness because I found Monica’s character and mimic abilities to be somewhat annoying. Anyhow, she goes on to explain why the character is being cut: “Dana: “Heroes” didn’t get the same critical or fan acclaim in season two, so I think the creators felt a lot of pressure because the ratings dropped and it wasn’t nominated for any Emmys. And with the strike, I feel like the writers had a lot of time to sit around and think. They wanted to come back really strong and go back to what the show was in season one – less drama, more action. And they took it in a different direction that didn’t really include Monica.”

Finally, NBC just released the official description for the two-hour season premier episode. Some key points:

  1. A key villain from the past appears
  2. Episode begins moments after Nathan is assasinated
  3. Sylar visits Claire
  4. Hiro and Ando need to safeguard a family secret
  5. Daphne is introduced
  6. Suresh makes a breakthrough
  7. Tracy Strauss is introduced
  8. Sylar attacks the company and battles Elle, in the meantime, a dozen Level 5 criminals escape
  9. Claire finds out something new about her powers  

UPDATE: I just stumbled across the first 15 minutes of episode 1 of season 3! It’s a video someone took at Comic Con 2008. Check it out here:
