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

Format: DVD
Heroes has been the best series too be shown on TV in years and this second part of the first season contains the final twelve episodes. The first half of the season was extremely good and if anything the episodes presented here are even better. This does have something to do with the brilliant writing and the involving plot as well as the performances by most of the regular cast members.

Despite the more than adequate performances from the cast, this half of Heroes is comprehensively stolen by the various guest stars that crop up now and again. Of particular interest are George Takei, Christopher Eccleston and Malcolm McDowell all of whom are great actors and all of whom steal the show whenever they are on screen.

On the down side the show does still suffer from an overabundance of slow moments that could annoy some people, the CGI is slightly off in places and Peter Petrelli is still more of an annoyance than anything (although I did enjoy the scene where Eccleston was beating him with a stick). Despite this Heroes remains the best TV show to have been made in recent years and I would say that it is up there with the best TV shows ever produced.

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.

Since moving away from my parents I don't watch much television but found this DVD and am really glad I did. Through the first episode of the series to the last I was hooked and wanted to know what happened. Really enjoyed how the storyline was split up between different characters and got through the DVDs very quickly. The plot was relatively easy to pick up on while still being confused as more and more information was revealed throughout the series which worked well. I have already bought the next series and look forward to watching that. Would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

Series one of heroes was pretty amazing and a must see. The storyline can at times get a little confusing but rest assured that all loose ends are tied up by the end and you do walk away feeling extreamly satisfied. The acting is not too bad and the style of directing fits well with type of series that it is.

Series two was not anywhere near as good as series one but is still worth a watch if this dvd turns you into a heroes fan. Which is most probably will.

If you have just seen series 3 but missed series 1. Then get this and part 1 of season 1. I'd heard about Heroes and it sounded like hype. But my daughter got me into it and I just love it. It nicely combines classic comic book heroes and classic Sci Fi. With each of the characters having their own developing story. Just brilliant.

I loved Heroes when it was weekly on BBC, but seeing the whole story arc in the box set makes you realise just how absorbing the characters are and how carefully plotted the whole thing is from the beginning. And thankfully, here's one TV series exploring what "human is" that manages to do it with a bit of humour too. And Sylar is just the best villain ever.

we actually had the whole first season but lost the last part before we'd seen it- and it was so important we watched the end I had to buy this part 2 again (the original did of course turn up under the sofa eventually)

We enjoyed season one part one despite some gory detail. The plot was clever and imaginative. We decided to buy part 2. We got it for 1p and it did not dissapoint. It look longer to arrive than expected but it did arrive. Postage of course cost more but we are having hours of entertainment for less than the price of a small cinema popcorn. Thanks very much!
