TV Line says Microsoft is in preliminary discussions about bringing back NBC show Heroes as programming for the XBox, as part of creating exclusive content for their system.

That part makes sense for Microsoft's strategy. But Heroes specifically? I never watched Heroes, but my impression from you all who did watch is Heroes had a really strong first season and then flailed wildly and mostly unsuccessfully for three more seasons. It had some good moments in the later episodes, but it was overall unable to recreate the magic of the first ones and there wasn't the big outcry to keep the show alive normally seen for canceled SciFi shows.

Am I way off here? Do people want more Heroes? That article reads like a purposeful leak to encourage fan interest, but I don't know it actually exists for this show.

I don't think you're wrong. I was out in Season 3 and even after it hit Netflix streaming and thought "I should finish it for completion sake" I still never went back and watched it. Even my most apologetic "Heroes" friend wouldn't be interested in the series returning.

Interest would really depend on who would be writing/directing/producing the show. I grew to hate Heroes as much as anybody, but I enjoy the superpowers trope enough to give it a shot as long as the same old idiots aren't the ones in charge.

This is assuming I could figure out how to give it a shot without having an XBox.

I would be up for it since I am thinking if dumping satellite anyway. I am curious to see who will come back and the end was fairly open ended.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Heroes deserved the fifth season it was denied. The show's momentum was utterly destroyed by the writers' strike - no other show was more damaged - and they were just on the cusp of potentially getting it back with the storyline they were proposing for the fifth season when the rug was pulled out from underneath it. Beyond that... well, I'd love to see what they do with what they should've had first.

Don't have an Xbox though. Have no plans on getting one. So if this is true and Microsoft finds a way to pull the trigger on it, they better have alternative distribution plans on tap.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I was a Heroes fan early on, but I was long gone by the end, and I wouldn't have much interest in it coming back. IS back, and I actually am watching it, in the form of Touch. I mean, it's not the SAME show, of course, but if you liked Heroes, most of what you liked about it is there in Touch. (It's just that the superpowers are all mental.)

I thought Ilana was being a little cavalier with her treatment of the dynamite, but I guess she figured her purpose would cause the island to keep her alive. Did she load the dynamite at the bottom of her bag with the water???
