R.I.P. Egon

Harold Ramis has died at 69 years old. He was known for many roles, but I will always remember him from the Ghost Busters movies as Dr. Egon Spengler. I was very glad to hear that Ramis was surrounded by family in the home he lived since 1996 when he passed. Rest in peace Egon Spengler.

Heroes Returning To NBC (Video)

It’s only been 4 years since the TV show Heroes last aired on NBC but probably about six years since it was actually good. I use to watch that show when it aired live Monday Nights…At least I think it was Monday nights. The show was great in the beginning and somewhere around season 3 it started to fall off for more. It seemed like it was surrounded by a ton of mystery and had all the momentum to be a big hit that could last a long time. However, some of you may remember the fatal writers strike that in my humble opinion doomed the series into cancellation just when it was really starting to take off.

Well there is Good News for fans of the series. NBC execs have confirmed the Heroes will be returning in 2015 with thirteen new episodes and original series creator Tim Kring is all set to run the show which will be titled “Heroes Reborn.” So far there is no word yet on if any of the original cast members will be reprising their roles in this new series. In my opinion I think they should start with a brand new cast that lives outside the story line of the original and slowly reintroduce some (not all) of the original cast back into the fold.

I personally am very excited to have this show back and I think it comes at a great time especially with shows like Marvel: Agents of Shield, Arrow, and the new Batman series that is on it’s way. I think Hollywood can see that this is a great time for super heroes and “Heroes” really was one of the shows that paved the way for such prosperity. As always, I want to know what you think Nerd Nation. Did you watch the original back in 2006 and are you excited to see it coming back to network television.
