Was hesitant to buy... didn't want to buy a series I wasn't going to get into. Boy, am I glad I did. The last episode was a bit of a disappointment, but only really because the whole series was so good... Definately a buy!

The first season of Heroes is one of the best TV shows I've ever watched. Some parts are a little corny but it's too be expected considering this is sci-fi. If you're looking for a show with an interesting plot and that will leave you at the edge of your seat after every episode buy this disc set. Read More

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.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review If nothing else, credit NBC with this year's blindest -- and perhaps most ambitious -- leap into the serialized unknown, with a wild sci-fi premise that has cult hit potential but will need a heroic confluence of events to extend its appeal beyond that narrow core. Very little in "Heroes" is clear after the extra-long pilot -- indeed, even through three episodes -- which ask viewers to embark on an open-ended journey fraught with the threat of world annihilation, strange powers and talk of mutation toward a "next evolutionary step" that won't sit well with those convinced the Earth is only 6,000 years old...In addition, as some storylines become more interesting, others look more pallid by comparison and slow the narrative, proving that not all heroes are created equal...That said, the premiere does possess a sweeping feel, some style and considerable intrigue, and it manages to be serious without becoming silly.

Quotes
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...
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.
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.
