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

Even from watching the very first episode, you're hooked. Less frustrating than Lost and much more realistic than the X-Men, Heroes biggest appeal is the superb characters whose journeys you follow. Of course it does play on the comic book aspect quite a lot (especially with the Japanese business man who discovers he can control time and travel vast distances in the blink of an eye) but is executed with perfection creating an alluring TV show. With an ever growing fan-base, Heroes is here to stay. Highly recommended.
......although I do agree with another reviewer, perhaps you might want to wait until the entire series is released on DVD in December.

..........YATTTTA!!

Format: DVD
Heroes was one of the most anticipated shows of last year and while I it was probably slightly over hyped in places, the show did turn into one of the best pieces of TV I have seen for years. This boxed set includes the first eleven episodes of this great show, as well as a large number of extras including deleted scenes, making of documentaries and a never before seen pilot episode.

The show itself is brilliantly made with some great ideas, likable characters, a good script and a plot that is both interesting and involving. All the cast do brilliant jobs in their respective roles but the real star of the program has too be Misa Oka playing Hiro Nakamura, he simply brightens up the show every time he is on screen with his joyful performance. On the down side Heroes is somewhat slow in places and this could put some people off but if you stick with it the show definitely delivers in the end. Other problems with the series are that some of the CGI effects leave something to be desired and the character of Peter Petrelli has a tendency to be somewhat annoying but these are minor concerns in such a great program.

Heroes sees a group of ordinary people deal with extraordinary abilities. Although to the casual observer this may seem like another sci-fi, heroes is much more of a drama with sci-fi elements involved. Each episode, which acts like chapters in a book, are very character driven rather pieces, relying on the characters and there struggles to drive the story rather than relying heavily on SFX. However that's not to say that the show dose not have eye catching SFX to portray the characters abilities. Extremely good writing, goes hand in hand with the extremely good acting. Heroes is the most cleaver TV show available right now. However your better off waiting for the full season box set.

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Part 1 of this series. The story is well written with plenty of questions being thrown up. It is very much a mystery and my curiosity led me to carry on watching this way past my bedtime.

I too have found their decision to split the series into two parts for European release a disappointment. Series 1 is now available as a single box set but the pricing is extortionate compared to what USA viewers pay.

I'll be watching Part 2 next and hope it maintains the high standard set by Part 1. I'm certainly eager to find out what happens next.

Format: DVD
Some idiots are rating this product as 1 star because of the price. But what they forget to mention is the fact that to play DVD's from America you need a multi-region DVD player. Oh, and its up to the individual as to what price they are prepared to pay. And their 1-star ratings could put people off buying this product! IDIOTS!!!!

Any way, onto the actual review. This is the first half-of season 1. You have a lot of good episodes here, which particulary deal with each Hero discovering their powers. There is also the gradual build-up of the main storyline which is very gripping, as you wonder how they will save the day.

SPOILERS

Hiro(someone who has the power to bend time and space) travels into the future and see's New York City explode. He travels back to the past and embarks on a quest to save New York City. A man named Peter Petrelli who has the ability to absorb the powers of others receives a message from the future Hiro in which New York exploded. Future Hiro says: "Save the cheerleader. Save the world." So Peter Petrelli is also trying to save New York City. All of the other characters alos weeve in and out of the main storyline as well as continuing to be involved in their own personal storys(e.g. a young girl coming to terms with the fact she is invincible).

END OF SPOILERS

So this first half of the season is excellent, with the episode "Homecoming" being the highlight. Its not as good as LOST or 24 but its still one of the best shows currently on air. :)
