Transcript

  • Welcome to the "Heroes" Interactive experience!
  • This week's journey starts in Honduras, but soon you'll be travelling to other Heroes locations including Haiti, New York, Japan and Ireland by interacting and accumulating points.
  • Do you side with Monty and Simon? Should Nathan lose the beard?
    • Definately
    • No, it works on him
  • If you found Sylar deathly ill on the side of the road, would you help him?
    • No way (68%)
    • Yes, I'm not an ogre (32%)
  • Meet Monica. Dana Davis joins the "Heroes" cast. You may recognize her as Felicia Jones, previously seen on "The Nine".
  • Angela knows Matt can read her mind. Do you think she has a power of her own, or is she merely perceptive?
    • Just perceptive (9%)
    • Has a power (91%)
  • To make Claire's high school seem realistic, 100 background artists were hired. Since the real high school was in session, 4 production assistants were needed to lock up and keep the real high school students out of the shot.
  • The joke where Nathan asks Matt if he is reading his mind was actually inserted last minute on the set.
  • In this scene, Sylar looks down at his cracked watch. In what first season episode did the watch crack?
    • 7 Mins 2 Midnight
    • Unexpected
    • Nothing to Hide
    • The Fix
  • A food stylist was hired to cut 35 tomatoes in the shape of a rose for this shot. The stylist had to come in that day to cut them because the tomatoes do not refrigerate well.
  • The writers often include foods they snack on while breaking stories, such as frozen yogurt. Another often-featured plate is chilaquiles, which has appeared in multiple episodes.
  • Don't forget to check out CHARACTER MAP to learn more about the characters of Heroes and their connections.
  • To create the look of the Hollywood sign, the Art Dept. created an 8-foot partial "O" and surrounded it by blue screen. Stargate, the Heroes visual FX company, then shifted the footage into a Hollywood sign plate that they created.
  • Claire's fall and West's swoop calls for the actors to be in full harnesses. A 15-foot platform is covered with a blue drape for them to stand on & Stargate adds the visual effects.
  • The wrestler feature on the TV set is Rey Mysterio. That specific move in the wrestling world is known as 6-1-9.
  • It took four hours in makeup to achieve Nathan's burnt and scarred face.
  • Claire and West make a smooth sidewalk landing using a "teeter totter" that the actors sit on to support their weight. The camera only shows their dangling feet as they are slowly lowered so they can easily hop off.
  • Combined with visual effects, Sylar and Maya are wearing large black contact lenses that fit the full eye.
  • Notice that HRG eats frozen yogurt as he waits up for Claire. Apparently, the family got yogurt without her.
  • Wind chimes ringing was made possible by using an "E fan", which has a special motor that is more silent than your ordinary fan.
  • Would you accept Molly's help if you were in Matt's position?
    • Yes (70%)
    • No (15%)
    • I don't know (15%)
  • A stunt double was used for the kick. The glass was rigged with two squibs, which are small explosive devices resembling a stick of dynamite. A special effects technician hit the glass breaker at the stuntman hit the glass, allowing the stuntman to tumble to the floor.

Notes

  • As with those for the previous episodes of Season Two, The Heroes Interactive for The Kindness of Strangers was accompanied by a character map, which was essentially a portal of photos and season one histories for each of the characters.
