Heroes started up again last night and it was good. I know Season Two got a lot of shit from fans...and I'll admit it wasn't as good as Season One, but the new season looks like it'll get back on track to being awesome. :) Future Peter is awesome, Hiro and Ando are fun again, and Claire-bear is as cute as ever. (And boy is the "dark" Claire frakkin' HOT!) I think I might start liking "Veronica Mars" too. ;-P
Anyway, since the show has started up again, I thought I'd post the pictures from my tour of the Heroes studio last July. Having the awesome job that I have, I've made some pretty awesome friends that like to do nice things, and Jeph Loeb is one of those friends. If you don't know, he's a very popular comic-book writer and in recent years has become the Executive Producer for this little show. ;-P So, right before the San Diego Comcicon , I stopped in LA and Jeph was kind enough to let me wander around the set...for like 6 hours!!! The crew is AWESOME, they were all so nice and let me go pretty much wherever I wanted and I got to hear a bunch of secrets and meet some of the cast! hehehe
So without further ado (aka babbling), here's my Heroes experience!
Jack Coleman and Ali Larter (she's so pretty):
There's the man himself, Jeph Loeb, as seen through the non-wall of the fake bathroom:
They've got this awesome wall with pics of all the fallen characters!
Remember this door to Mohinder's dad's apartment?
The famous floor!! Soooooo awesome that I got to walk on it!! :)
More of Isaac's-loft-turned-Mohinder's-lab:
The map of all the hero connections. I'm pointing to the prop guy that was showing me around. They got to use crew pics to fill up the map! :)
Sylar's watch shop! REALLY cool!
Workin' at Sylar's worktable! heh I love this picture...
The apartment where Mohinder and Parkman stayed with Molly:
Peter's bedroom... heh heh heh
Previous tenants of the studio — including GOLDEN GIRLS!!!
The prop room was fun, I got tons of cool souvenirs!
Awesome view from the lot:
There were more, but I can't post everything...
I got to watch two scenes being filmed, each only a couple minutes long, but were filmed from every angle, focusing on every character, so it took ages. I even got to wear the headset for one of them (writer Jesse Alexander is also super nice and let me use his!). It was awesome! I saw a scene with Mohinder and Maya, but since I don't really like their characters (especially Mohinder) I didn't ask to take pictures with them. haha Mohinder did ask me where Jeph went at one point, though, so I talked to him. ;-P haha
So, all in all, AWESOME experience! My next studio tour should be 30 Rock...can't wait for that one! Tina Fey is super cool!!!
