From Amazon.co.uk

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 Panetierre 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

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME 24 July 2007
Format:DVD
This is a truly slick, well made, fascinating series, which thank goodness is finally coming to UK terrestrial TV this week. From the start the characters are engaging and the multi plot format really works well. There are clear similarites with the themes in the X Men films but it is handled in so much more depth it is hard to compare the two. As the series progressing you get the tantalising build up created by having the separate story lines coming together... I won't say much for fear of giving it away, but the finale is worth waiting for. Excellent, adult Sci-fi that is a credit to the genre.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:HD DVD
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 few manage to be as intelligent, geeky and well-written as "Heroes," a solid comic-book style TV series that explores the repercussions of several "ordinary" people who discover that they have strange -- and sometimes dangerous -- powers.

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, Japanese Dilbert Hiro (Masi Oka) can bend time and space, Senatorial candidate Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) is able to fly, his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) can copy others' powers, a cop Matt (Greg Grunberg) can read minds, and junkie artist Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) sees the future. There are plenty of others that show up, but these start the ball rolling.

While Claire and Hiro explore the potential of their new powers, Niki and her son try to elude some hired thugs --and end up overwhelmed by her dark side, and framed. And Suresh searches for the answer to his father's death, only to find that his genetics research is involved with the "special people," and that a superpowered serial killer is targeting them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just normal american trashy tv 2 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
HEROES is an excellent series. The comic book style format gives you time to meet the characters instantly and then get to know what their powers are and how they struggle to deal with them without the typical american tendency to show you something and then forget about it and act like it never happened, in heroes everything come back to bite them. The special effects at times are obvious but others astounding, but also make a show that isn't for kids due to the sometimes graphic nature. Everyone I know who has seen more than a couple of episodes has become hooked and the cliffhanger endings make you want to watch the next episode straight away.

The DVD also has the full uncut pilot episode which runs for 73 mins compared to the aired TV 45 min so maybe the characters won't seem to be as rammed in for those who were put off watching the TV.

Anyway if you fed up of the normal run of the mile sci-fi we get force fed then watch HEROES.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable start 18 Sep 2007
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
It's as if the 4400 never happened, humans with special powers, an evil menace needing to be stopped, angsty teenagers struggling to get a grip on whats happening. Yet Heroes is not just some ripoff. It has a completely different style, with shifts in mood from the humour of the 2 Japanese friends chasing 'destiny', to the surprisingly dark where a mother and her son are chased by a viscious gang while her alter ego begins to exert it's power, a seemingly normal cheerleader is invincible and finds her life unravelling piece by piece. The real horror comes with a killer who can't be stopped and a seemingly unimportant character becoming evil.
The style lurches from manga style scenes to dark & brooding through to bleached desert scenes and then we are launched sections that look like adverts with swooping overhead photography, quickly cut images & moody lighting. Heroes makes no bones of it's attempt to keep the interest of it's younger audience and although it's easy to see why some reviewers feel it may be a little disjointed the fact is that no episode goes by without surprise and although there are quite a few characters they all have something to contribute and all move the story forward.
This is not for the sqeamish or for those hoping for the deep & meaningful. However if you enjoy fast paced & action packed with a twisting plotline then this is going to do it for you. It is well acted for the most part, well plotted,(if a little convoluted), plenty of twists and a budget to match the writers imagination,(no cheapo effects here),.
The sound is a very good 5.1 mix and the picture is crystal clear, even the many scenes in the dark are never murky.
