Absolutely brilliant, season 4 epitomises what Heroes is all about, this pulls it all together. Not so much slicing and dicing, appearing and disappearing, it just simply makes sense of it all.

Good things must come to an end, but the ending doesn't quite make you convinced it's quite the end.

Grammy and Bafta winner..... Maybe If I was Hiro, I could have a say in that :)

Excellent stuff....

Watching Season 4 will be in some ways very much unlike the previous seasons - sure, the basic premise of course remains and many of the characters are familiar (and the ones who are not are no less gifted). The positive development in my opinion is that the whole show calms down a bit and istead of jumping between alternate futures episode to episode, there seems to be a consistency of theme throughout the season.

The new addition is the Carneval - a way for a group of people with abilities to hide - and as for people, Samuel is the main new character. Without spoiling any of it, the majority of the show links to / revolves around the Carneval and Samuel, while at the same time also revealing more about Claire (the cheerleader, who now is luckily out of the cry 5 times a minute phase for good) and Noah Bennett. There are also two subplots focused on Gabriel and Hiro respectively, which work rather neatly.

The added focus, and as a result a slightly slower pace of events in my opinion really adds to the franchise - it removes some of the frantic elements from the previous seasons and allows the story to build more slowly, also giving Kring more of an opportunity to build a more solid and bettr rgued story in the process.

If you liked the previous series, this one should definitely come as no disappointment, in fact, had you not watched the series from the start, Season 4 might be a good place to immerse yourself, before going through the rollercoaster of the previous three seasons.

Heroes should stand as a great tragedy of television greatness; if left as a single season it would have stood tall with a reputation that would have made it untouchable. The concept of a second season wasn't terribly bad either it was just a question of whether the characters could be taken to new heights, whether new characters would engage and whether the stories becoming more thrilling. What didn't help and in fact may be the overall contribution to Heroes' fall was the writers strike which split the second season. The second season ended up a dull affair while the third season at times felt overblown and the two volumes which made it up didn't feel consistent as a whole unit. There was still quality but some of the characters went from change to change that come the finale, they had become completely lost.

Season four and `Redemption' however isn't a complete calamity as it stands. It starts off with great potential, a more character driven plot centred on the idea of a Carnival filled with people with abilities led by the mysterious Samuel (Robert Knepper). Though many fans weren't convinced with the concept, it was a more interesting organisation than the Company or the Government Agency in previous volumes. This was in part due to the mysterious nature of its inhabitants; were they heroes or villains? The Carnival was the opposite of past organisations but the series was clever at also making it seem like a healthy alternative compared to what transpired in `Fugitives'.

Tied into this was the resolution of the `twist' at the end of `Fugitives' which whilst lacked an overall point, was a very interesting and at times entertaining aspect of the season which featured heavily Nathan Petrelli and Matt Parkman also.

Heroes' fourth and, sadly, final season doesn't disappoint. We continue to be moved, amused, amazed, surprised and mercilessly cliff-hung by a wonderfully inventive narrative. Hiro and Ando are still as funny and touching as ever; the Horn Rimmed Glasses guy is still just as worried about his indestructible Claire Bear; Matt is still as endearing, Suresh as brilliant, Peter as saintly, and Sylar - well, the scriptwriters have plenty in store for Sylar.

Other old acquaintances are still with us too, and there are many new mutants good and evil to make the show's delectably elaborate mythology even richer. We're given a new big, big Big Bad, and - as the box art hints - we're going to be visiting what must surely be the ultimate in sinister Bradburyesque carnivals.

Universal's engineers have done the show proud, with a splendid transfer to Blu-ray. The 1080p video and DTS HD Master Audio allow you to relish every moment of 16x9 Heroic spectacle to the full. Extras, as usual, are plentiful.

A footnote for anyone who hasn't yet bought the preceding seasons on Blu-ray and who loves getting a BD bargain: there's a box set of the entire series - Heroes - Season 1-4 Complete (2012 Repackage) [Blu-ray][Region Free] - which can sometimes be snapped up from amazon.co.uk for less than 30. If there's one thing I like better than an episode of Heroes on a Blu-ray, it's an episode of Heroes on a cheap Blu-ray!
