Season One DVDs
My roommates and I had a Heroes marathon this weekend. One of them hadn't seen the show at all, so we were determined to get her hooked. We managed to get through the entire season in two days.
Now I'm watching some of the episodes with commentary tracks on and I'm highly amused...
So apparently the actress who played Sylar's mom in "The Hard Part" was the woman who played Audrey in the movie "Little Shop of Horrors".
According to Masi Oka (Hiro) in the commentary track of Landslide, the actors would burst into song around her and made up a song called "Suddenly Sylar". He wouldn't sing it for George Takai on the commentary track because of copyright issues, but the ideas of the actors filking cracked me up.
I love actor commentaries. This is my third one this evening. I also listened to "Five Years Gone" with Greg Grunberg (Matt), Jack Coleman (Mr Bennet) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder). And then I listened to "The Hard Part" with Noah Gray-Cabey (Micah), James Kyson Lee (Ando) and the stunt coordinator.
I also have to say that re-watching the entire season in two days has made me appreciate a lot of things even more. I like some of the characters/storylines that I wasn't crazy about the first time around and I got to notice little things and how the connections started a lot earlier on.
I'm really looking forward to the Season Two premiere even more now :)
