Season 1

Arguably the most talked-about television show of the 2006-2007 season, the Emmy-nominated fantasy Heroes gives viewers blends comic book-style adventure with plotting and characters as rich and layered as any graphic novel or drama series. Creator Tim Kring's premise is deceptively simple – ordinary individuals in locations around the globe discover that they have, for lack of a better term, super powers, and wrestle with this reality while facing challenges both global (the destruction of New York City, for one) and personal (indestructible cheerleader Hayden Panettiere has family issues – serious ones, as the true identity of her adoptive father reveals; Milo Ventimiglia's Peter Petrelli, who absorbs other powers, must overcome his own insecurities). Add to this mix a terrific villain – Zachary Quinto's Sylar, who hunts and kills people with extraordinary powers like our heroes – and viewers have a riveting series that exhibits an almost-perfect balance of cliffhanger thrills (the action and special effects are truly impressive for a network program) and genuine drama that sets the show apart from most speculative fiction (save, perhaps, the revived Battlestar Galactica, which it compares too favourably). --Paul Gaita

Season 2

Truncated to a slim 11 episodes as a result of the writers’ strike that was ongoing in America during its production, Heroes’ second season nonetheless packs enough in to keep the momentum rolling on one of the most exciting Stateside shows of the moment. Heroes is, at heart, the comic book tale of a varied group of people, each with special powers that they struggle to come to terms with. With such powers, of course, come troubling foes and situations to face, and that proves to be the case here. So this time, we pick up four months after the events of the first series, and there’s the small matter of the Shanti virus to contend with. This provides the main thrust for the series’ story arc, and allows room for several interesting sub-plots to develop too. Yet while, in the world of Heroes, you suspect that this second series will never rank with the best, there’s easily enough here to justify the asking price, and the show emerges easily with its reputation intact. Even when it’s not at the top of its game, Heroes is exciting, interesting and polished entertainment. --Jon Foster

What if you discovered that you had a superpower -- great strength, flight, teleportation, or amazing healing? And what if you could use it to save the world?

Superheroes are everywhere in entertainment, from comic books to movies. But they suddenly got new attention in "Heroes," which explores the repercussions of "ordinary" people who discover that they have strange -- and sometimes dangerous -- powers. The first season is a a solid comic-book style TV series, although the second season trips over itself.

It opens with Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) reflecting on the human quest for knowledge -- even knowledge that we shouldn't have -- right before learning that his father has been killed, possibly murdered. Suresh's dad believed that "special" people were cropping up, much like in X-Men.

And we are introduced to the "heroes": stripper Niki (Ali Larter) harbors a secret dark side, cheerleader Claire (Hayden Panettiere) heals from any injury, cubicle worker Hiro (Masi Oka) bends time and space, Senatorial candidate Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) is able to fly, his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) can copy others' powers, cop Matt (Greg Grunberg) can read minds, and junkie artist Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) sees the future.

Their lives are dramatically changed by their powers -- some explore them, some are haunted by them, and a superpowered serial killer is hunting and murdering the others. Even worse, Hiro witnesses the explosive destruction of New York a mere five weeks into the future -- and a future version of himself says that saving the cheerleader will save the world.

The second season is a much shorter one (because of a writers' strike) and doesn't quite measure up to the epic heights of the first season.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Sean Bell on 27 Feb 2009
I never really got on the Heroes bandwagon when it started purely because I watched an episode half way through the first series, big mistake as it was quite confusing. I thought I would have learnt this lesson form previous experiences: 24, Farscape and Sopranos, all of which I watched so far into the series and was put off.

Anyway like the other series I purchased the first seasons on DVD and watched them from the start and much like 24, Farscape and Sopranos; Heroes belongs right up there. It is a very gripping series with great characters, the inter-relations between characters has been well planned and thought through and subtlety delivered.

I heard people say it was a 'poor mans'' X-Men. I'm sorry but they are idiots. This is much deeper than that and to a degree less tounge in cheek. The US continues to deliver high class tv that the BBC could learn from.

I fully recommend this to anyone who has not thought about watching this and to others umming and arghhing get the money spent and enjoy a world class tv series.

This is such a hard series to watch that in the sense, you start and it becomes very difficult to NOT want to watch the whole season in one go.

This box set was at SUCH a reasonable price compared to high street pricing and came with the two first seasons. The first season was incredibly addictive as we follow a group of normal individuals who suddenly find themselves discovering they have amazing powers just like comic book heroes.

Mohinder Suresh, a brilliant scientist, discovers that his late-father's research points towards a new breed of individuals in the world who possess a certain string of genes that give them special abilities was actually more than just a wild unproven theory. When he finds himself being tracked by a mysterious man in horned-rimmed glasses, he realises that there may be something more to his fathers crazy ramblings.

Claire, a stereotypical blonde cheerleader, finds herself feeling like an outsider after discovering she can heal up through any injury no matter how severe, while Hiro, a Japanese Trekkie who works for a large corporation is only too happy to discover he has the power to affect and change time. Isaac, a talented but heroin addicted comic-book artist, begins to realise he can paint what seems to be a horrible impending future, while the hospice nurse caring for his girlfriend's father, Peter, begins to believe that his dreams of flying are prophetic and that he actually may be able to fly, much to his brother Nathan's distress as Peter's insane claims come as he's trying to run for Mayor.

Just wanted to add a small bit to the other reviews. I'd not seen any of the series and bought this set. I kept wondering if it was kiddie friendly and weather my kids would be OK to watch this as they do X-Men or Daredevil...but I'm glad I did'nt let them see it. There really are some gruesome scenes in the show. So, yes , a superb series but not family entertainment. For once, the rating is probably pretty acurate.
On another note, the actual packaging is a bit lame. It's nice to have slimline cases that dont rake up much room, but just to have them loose in a Heroes printed box stops this from getting full marks.
One more point...the unseen Pilot episode looked extremely similar to the actual pilot "Genesis", not sure what a great extra feature this is.
