Premiere Date: Sept 22
Time: 9:00PM EST
TwoCents Staff Writer: Brittany
Starring: Hayden Panettiere as Claire, Sendil Ramamurthy as Mohinder, Masi Oka as Hiro, Milo Ventimiglia as Peter, and Zachary Quinto as Sylar.
Where We Left Off: Last we saw our 'Heroes', everyone was dealing with the aftermath of Kirby Plaza. Sylar spends the season trying to regain his abilities after being exposed to the Shanti Virus and kills Candace in the process. The main arc of what we saw (Season 2 was pre-empted by the Writer's Strike) dealt with the Company and it's research of the Shanti Virus. Meanwhile, Peter ends up in Ireland, sans any memory of what happened at Kirby Plaza. He is eventually transported to a future version New York City, post Shanti Virus outbreak. Ultimately, the heroes band together to avoid a potential outbreak while Sylar finally regains the use of his powers.
Premiere Description: The first chapter of “Volume 3: Villains” kicks off moments after shots rang out, as the shocking identity of Nathan’s (Adrian Pasdar) assassin and the reasons why the Texas press conference had to be cut short are revealed -- immediately throwing Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and Matt (Greg Grunberg) into unexpected, uncharted territory. With his powers partially restored, Sylar (Zachary Quinto) decides a visit to Claire (Hayden Panettiere) could give him a boost. Meanwhile, in Tokyo, Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee) are charged with safeguarding a family secret that could split the planet apart, and discover that the path to a grim future starts with shady speedster, Daphne (guest star Brea Grant). In New York City, thanks to Maya (Dania Ramirez), Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) makes a startling breakthrough that could change the world -- or just destroy his. And who is Tracy Strauss? In the shocking second chapter of “Volume 3: Villains,” Angela (Cristine Rose) confronts her much-changed son, Peter, as the bursts of violence around them only hint to the catastrophes to come. First, Sylar declares war on the Company by attacking their main facility, and finds even more than he bargained for on Level 5. During a devastating battle with Elle (guest star Kristen Bell), a dozen savage criminals -- all with terrible abilities -- escape. Meanwhile, Claire discovers something new and unexpected about her abilities. Determined to reclaim his family’s terrible secret, Hiro and Ando track Daphne (guest star Brea Grant) to Paris. After a fateful night, Suresh is thrilled to find his research, his life and his relationship with Maya evolving in leaps and bounds. Stuck in unfamiliar territory, Matt finds a guide (guest star Ntare Mwine) to help him.

Show: My Own Worst Enemy (NEW)
Premiere Date: Sept 29
Time: 10:00PM EST
TwoCents Staff Writer: OPEN
Starring: M├Ądchen Amick as Angie Spivey, Saffron Burrows as Dr. Norah Skinner, Taylor Lautner as Jack Spivey, Mike O'Malley as Tom Grady/Raymond, Christian Slater as Henry Spivey/Edward Albright, Bella Thorne as Ruthy Spivey, Alfre Woodard as Mavis Heller.
Program Description: Henry (Slater) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with his wife, Angie, their two kids, a dog, and a minivan. Edward (Slater) is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill. Albright works at Janus Headquarters for Mavis Heller (Alfre Woodard, "Desperate Housewives"), a tough, extremely intelligent woman with a hidden compassionate side. Henry and Edward are polar opposites who share only one thing in common -- the same body. When the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, Henry and Edward are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element.
