Talk:Heroes (TV)

I don't get the fanart sentence. ("The comms listed are the usual media fandom suspects; perhaps because of the comic book aspect of the show, and official tie-in graphic novels, there is a great deal of 'fan' art for Heroes from outside media fandom that is well worth looking for.") What's supposed to be the point here? Like, why is fan in quotes? That makes it sound as if people weren't "real" fans if they don't hang out on LJ comms. Also it makes it sound as if comic fans aren't properly fans either? And because it doesn't link but only says it was "worth looking for" I have no idea what the fanart the sentence is talking about actually is, so I'm not sure how to edit this. Of course I've seen Heroes fanart in places that aren't the LJ comms linked below (like deviantArt and Elfwood and message boards for example), but those are all usual fan places to find fanart too.--Ratcreature 12:51, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Full disambiguation page?

This now includes two disambiguation pointers to other pages, and I suspect we're going to find some other things named "Heroes" as we go along. I know the TV show is probably what the majority of people are looking for, but I'd suggest we go ahead and make "Heroes" a disambiguation page (like Merlin) and make this Heroes (TV show).--Penknife 19:03, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Agreed - two disambig lines is one too many, and this is too common a word not to need more eventually. I'll go ahead and move it and turn this into a disambig page. --Arduinna 20:43, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

disambiguation consistency

All the other disambiguated television shows and films have either (TV), (the year), or (the production company). Is it okay to rename this page Heroes (TV)?--æthel 05:27, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

I see no problem with renaming it to fit the scheme.--RatCreature 08:39, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Rethinking disambiguation: Some TV articles have a (TV series) disambiguation in the title, and I like that better because some articles have the network the show airs on instead, and it's confusing to see Lewis (ITV) next to Heroes (TV) on the category page. However, it occurred to me that (TV series) might be too American. Do other varieties of English use "series" to refer to the whole show (as well as/instead of to a single season)? Is "TV" a universal abbreviation? Maybe (television show) would work better? (It would certainly eliminate the visual confusion I had with ITV.)--æþel 12:48, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

  • I know this is a little late, but I think Heroes (TV series) would probably look better, I think "series" works both ways although I know in the UK shows such as Doctor Who, they use "Series 1, Series 2" more often to talk about which season. "(TV series)" I think is used on here more often anyway for various shows that have disambiguation pages unless there is more than one. I actually wanted to pose a question on changing Category:Heroes (TV) to just Category:Heroes since there is no other actual fandoms with the title "Heroes".--Harpie (talk) 20:20, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
If there is no other "Category:Heroes", then the disambiguation doesn't belong in the category name. So my vote is +1 for changing it to Category:Heroes. --Doro (talk) 12:37, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
