Yesterday on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle Eva Longroia and Hayden Panittere battled it out. The Desperate Housewife mouthed Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda, and you can’t perform that song without an anaconda. Not the snake, but the body part the snake goes into. That’s right, she stuffed her shorts like teen girls stuff their bras. It was worth it because she won. But did she win for being performance or because of her a$$ets? Both!
When it comes to Cheerleader, she got some help as she moved her lips to Lady Marmalade from the Lady Marmalade herself, Christina Aguilera.
They are really bringing out the big guns this season, so I can’t wait to see who they surprise us with next.
Five years after we said goodbye Heroes, they are Reborn tonight at 8p on NBC for a 13 hour event. Before I tell you about what you can expect from Heroes Reborn, here are 5 things you should know.
1. You did not have to watch the original series to appreciate the reboot. Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) will be filling in the missing details for the newbies and the oldies according to the show’s creator Tim Kring.
2. The show picks up in real time, so five years and half years after the first one ended.
3. Only handful of the Heroes from the first series will appear in this one, they are Bennet, Hiro (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mrs. Patrelli (Cristine Rose), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis) and Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy).
4. Robbie Kay, who stars in Heroes Reborn was only 11 years old when Heroes debuted, so he was too young watch it.
5. Heroes Reborn is 13 hours and out. If it were to get picked up for another season, there would be a new storyline with new Evos/Heroes.
Now that you know that, here is what is happening on Heroes Reborn. Since we left Odessa, Tx. Heroes, who are now called Evos, are living out in public. Not everyone is happy about that, and some people want them stopped. On June 13, 2014, there was a huge summit in Odessa to unite the Evos and Ordinaries. During the rally, there is an explosion and many many people on both sides died. After that day, people are once again weary of the Evos and they are forced into hiding.
Fast forward to today, Bennett is a used car salesman who is going to get married. He doesn’t remember what happened on June 13th, but he does know his daughter Claire died on that day. His life is about to change when Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski), who lost his sister on that day, reminds him who he used to be. Something big is happening and we need HRG to help stop it.
Tonight, we will meet people with several different powers and they will all come in useful to stop what is about to happen. If saving the world wasn’t difficult enough for them, then having vigilantes like Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni), who want them all dead, on their tails won’t make it any easier.
Will they be able to save the world? We will have to keep tuning in for the next 11 weeks to find.
If you are a fan of Heroes, like me, then you are going to love Heroes Reborn because it has the same feel. If you’ve never seen Heroes, then you can love this thrilling Sci-fi, action adventure that combines people powers with trying to prevent the apocalypse.
NBC is bringing back Heroes sometime this year and little by little they have been saying which of the original cast members will be back to reprise their roles for Heroes: Reborn. Noah Bennett (Jack Coleman) and his glasses will be back and today NBC announced that Hiro (Masi Oka) is also reborn.
I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I am about this news because Hiro is my favorite. The only thing that would make it more perfect is if Jayma Mays can also be resurrected for him. After all it is called Heroes: Reborn, and dead people can be reborn, right?
