Editors Note
Note Combining comic book style and geeky in-jokes, HEROES is a stellar series that draws comparisons to fan favorites such as LOST and THE X-FILES. But thanks to its well-drawn characters and intricate plot, this drama reels in more than just superhero fans. HEROES revolves around the premise of seemingly ordinary people developing fantastic powers. There's Claire (Hayden Panettiere, ICE PRINCESS), a Texas cheerleader who can't be killed. Matt (Greg Grunberg, ALIAS) is a cop in Los Angeles who can read minds. New Yorker Peter (Milo Ventimiglia, GILMORE GIRLS) has the power to adopt other heroes' abilities, while his politician brother (Adrian Pasdar, JUDGING AMY) has a special power of his own. Though the show boasts many other characters, its secret weapon is Hiro (Masi Oka), a Japanese office worker who is delighted to discover he can move through space and time. But heroes wouldn't be heroes if there weren't villains and a coming apocalypse to fight, and the show features a truly creepy bad guy in the seemingly omnipotent Sylar (Zachary Quinto). In addition to all the episodes from the first season, this release also includes a never-before-seen, 73-minute version of the show's pilot.

Quotes
Emrah Guler, Turkish Daily News ...a unique experience..."Heroes" respects the supernatural and the unknown, taking it very seriously, like "The X-Files."
Home Theater Info ...deftly combines the best of the comic books we loved as kids with themes and plots that adults can appreciate.
Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly Propulsive, surprising, and emotionally charged storytelling.
Len Sousa, Slant Magazine ...a popcorn-fueled look into the comic-book universe minus the usual slew of acrobatic fight scenes and plus some healthy doses of melodrama.
Shawn McKenzie, Entertain Your Brain! ...reminds me of M. Night Shyamalan's 2000 movie Unbreakable, in that it portrayed a hero who slowly realizes that he has powers...
Tim Knight, Reel.com ...a juicily entertaining and ingenious series that's head and shoulders above almost all of the networks' other primetime series.
William David Lee, DVD Town ...an elaborate and intricate drama in the vein of "Lost." It is a show with a rich mythology and multi-layered storylines.
