From Amazon.co.uk

It’s hard to remember a science fiction series that has hit so big so quickly. Yet by the end of the first series of Heroes, it feels--for all the right reasons--that the show’s been around for longer than it has, such is the huge amount of success it’s enjoyed.

The setup is simple, yet undeniably intriguing. It essentially tells the stories of a series of people who discover they have legitimate, differing superhero powers. On top of that, these people then gradually appreciate that these powers are needed for reasons that soon become apparent, and the story of Heroes builds up from there.

Heavily influenced by comics both in its structure and story, Heroes sustains interest through a number of story arcs of different magnitudes, skilfully weaving them throughout the 23 episodes that make up the season. It’s contained enough to keep you interested, yet offers enough threads to make several more seasons a very appealing prospect.

Heroes, though, really gels because the basics are right. It’s plotted intelligently, written and directed with real nerve and talent, and has a cast who you can’t help but get emotionally involved with. It’s also, for the overwhelming majority of its episodes, utterly compelling televisions. Ironically, its few miss-steps of any note come right at the back end, by which time you really would forgive it pretty much anything.

Heroes is rightly being heralded as a sci-fi classic in the making. Yet even if subsequent seasons don’t fully do justice to those words--and at the time of writing, season two is still some way from debuting--this boxset will serve as a glowing testament to just how good television can be when it’s just done right. Quite brilliant. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

Combining comic book style and geeky in-jokes, Heroes is a stellar series that draws comparisons to fan favourites 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 cheerleader who can't appear to be injured or killed. Matt (Greg Grunberg, Alias) is a cop who can read minds. New Yorker Peter (Milo Ventimiglia, Rocky Balboa) 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. Features the complete first series.

I have only just started watching this series on BBC2, but already I am loving it. Although the first episode was quite slow, as all the majority of characters were being introduced, by the time I was watching the second episode I was hooked.

The main characters here are all normal people, yet for reasons not yet fully known, they each have be given a particular 'superhero' power, for example, there is a young cheerleader who discovers that her body is able to heal itself, making it impossible for her to stay hurt or die. Watching how she throws herself from great heights, then simply forces her broken bones back to how they should be, the enormity of what she has just discovered about herself is not lost on the audience.
As each character make their individual discoveries, you also watch how they begin to live with such a power. Do they use them for good or for bad? And, why do they have them in the first place?
As the series progresses, the lives of the heroes (who at first are distributed all over the world) slowly begin to come closer. Seemingly they are destined to be brought together in some way.

That is a very brief synopsis, as I have seen the series so far. HEROES is a complex series, with many strands and possible ways it could progress. From the second episode, for example, we are told of a mysterious man who seems to be wanted for horrific murders. As the series progresses, you get sucked into trying to discover just who he is and how he fits into everything that is going on. There seems to be clues hidden in various episodes too, making the series like some strange, elaborate form of murder mystery.

So far, this is a great series. Just how long it will be able to maintain the level of intrigue, excitement and mysteriousness will remain to be seen, but the start is just fantastic.

When I first heard the idea of this series I was excited. I love superheroes and american series like Lost, 24 and Smallville etc. Unfortunately, I don't love this. I wanted something as good as X-men, but in series form. Not necessarily like X-men, but as good as. Although an X-men series would rule! Anyway, this is more like an X-files take on the superhero genre. It is very dark and in my opinion, sometimes distasteful. The teenage girl for instance - instead of the Wolverine take on it, where you don't see anything unpleasant, this is much more graphic, with broken bones jutting out of her. It's nothing majorly bad but I prefer more 'taste' to my entertainment. It just doesn't have the same quality of other series either, the special effects were at times a bit tame even though the program had a huge budget. The flying at the beginning for example - it was very obvious they were wearing wires. And the characters were not generally likeable, all of them with their own miserable story to tell - does nothing go right for these people?? Hiro and Mr Bennett were my favourites though and I have to say the acting is top-notch by everyone. I did find the personalities of the characters changed a lot though, which was just plain weird. The psychopathic deranged killers had soft sides and the good guys turned murderers. Sylar for example, he actually killed innocent bystanders and had no problem with it and then suddenly he finds out what's going to happen and runs to his mum because he doesn't want to hurt anyone. What??! And Jessica was ruthless to begin with, when suddenly she's fighting alongside D.L. like they'd just had an arguement or something. She tried to kill him more than once. Some lovers tiff!Read more ›

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.
