Product Description

All seasons in this set have English SDH subtitles.

Season One:

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 television. 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

Season Two:
Truncated to a slim 11 episodes as a result of the writers’ strike that was ongoing in America during its production, Heroes’ second season nonetheless packs enough in to keep the momentum rolling on one of the most exciting Stateside shows of the moment.

Heroes is, at heart, the comic book tale of a varied group of people, each with special powers that they struggle to come to terms with. With such powers, of course, come troubling foes and situations to face, and that proves to be the case here. So this time, we pick up four months after the events of the first series, and there’s the small matter of the Shanti virus to contend with. This provides the main thrust for the series’ story arc, and allows room for several interesting sub-plots to develop too.

Yet while, in the world of Heroes, you suspect that this second series will never rank with the best, there’s easily enough here to justify the asking price, and the show emerges easily with its reputation intact. Even when it’s not at the top of its game, Heroes is exciting, interesting and polished entertainment. --Jon Foster

Season Three:
There’s a lot that’s fitted in to Heroes’ third season, a run that tried valiantly to correct some of the problems that the show encountered with its less-than-successful second series. Season three features two volumes of the Heroes story, Villains and Fugitives, but once more it gets off to a bumpy start.

The early stages of Heroes’ third season suffer from many of the problems that plagued season two, as it tries to deal with the threads that were left behind. But the show finally finds its feet as it heads towards the back end of the series, with a genuine feeling returning that the show knows exactly which way it’s going again. Characters begin to find out more about one another, there’s a bit more of a grounding in some kind of reality, and finally a narrative thrust that scoops back up many who have been left baffled by the direction that Heroes has taken since its terrific maiden season.

And it’s good to see the show back on form. Even in its weaker moments, Heroes’ production values were sky high, and there are many genuinely impressive sequences thrown in your direction over the course of season three. But most impressive of all is the feeling that the show has dug itself out of the hole that it managed to find itself in, and courtesy of an impressive rally at its back end, season three is certainly worth picking up. Even if you might need to grit your teeth a bit in the early stages… --Jon Foster

Season Four:
Experience all the explosive action and shocking twists in Heroes: Season 4.

Heroes started out very well. It was met with both critical and audience acclaim. It followed the likes of Claire, Peter and of course Hiro, long before their characters become repetitive and at times, annoying (season 3). The stories were engaging and exciting, the villain of the piece, Sylar, was mysterious and dangerous exuding real menace before becoming overexposed in later seasons. And more than anything it was a lot of fun to watch

Season 2, while is wasn't quite as good as as season 1, could still hold it own and despite some annoying new additions (namely Maya) there was still a lot of enjoyment to be had, however the writers strike cut the season in half and just as the story was all coming together, as a result the ending was rushed and unsatisfying (what did happen to Peter's Irish flame?), ultimately it would mark the beginning of the end for the show.

Season 3 was contrived and convoluted, boasting a 25 episode season count, the show would loose it's way, new characters would be brought in only to disappear a few episodes later, character motivations would shift rapidly and with little reason. Sylar was explored in too much depth patterned with an annoying sidekick for a limited time before eventually going a bit Norman Bates. The rest of the characters would be saddled with largely redundant stories. The second half of the season would pick up somewhat however there was no big season story arc akin to 'save the cheerleader' of season 1 and it showed, as season 3 proved to be overindulgent and unfocused making for a very mixed bag and the weakest of the four.

The fourth and final season hit the brakes big time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Series 26 Jan 2013
By Sarah
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was very happy to catch the box set on Blu-ray at just £28. Perfect! This is a great series and one that keeps me coming back. To set the record straight with a few 'dips' in the seasons it's probably worth mentioning the following:

Season 1 was a great and interesting start to Heroes. Well written, fresh and exciting. Season 2 was a lot shorter and in my opinion not as good. However, it was written during the Writers Guild of America strike and so with that in mind the weaknesses with the season were the effects of that (good writers are the backbone of any show/film and hopefully this made the powers that be realise this!). Season 3 then starts out wobbly tying up the problems created during Season 2, but then by the second half it's back up to the usual standard. Season 4 is then very different but I felt it worked really well. Definitely worth buying, particularly at this price. A great series to discover and enjoy!

The presentation of the Box itself is beautiful. Neat and glossy. Looks great. The quality of the picture and audio is also fantastic. Blu-ray definitely worth it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray Pack could have been better 15 Jan 2011
By BeRo
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Heroes is a great TV series, and I won't bore you with a review of the program itself, because that gets 5-stars everytime.

Instead, this review is specifically looking at this Blu Ray box-set. Now, it has a lot going for it, but as a Blu ray box-set, there's a whole lot more not going for it, due to it being badly organised and presented.

First off, the "extras". Yes, there's a nice selection of extras, but they are all over the place. Some of it is located in places that doesn't make sense to people, such as why discuss about what was not included in Series 3 due to the writers strike on a Series 2 disk? And where are the trailers and TV spots. I recall Volume 2 and 3 had fanfare in the US with a couple hour long programs - where are they? I recall on TV an interview with Hayden Panettiere on Volume 2, where is that? I recall a whole different Volume 3 was dropped, yet less than a couple minutes of this material is included. It would have been better to have included this, with the storyboard concepts for the bits that were not recorded. In the whole presentation, only one episode gets this level of treatment, which is a huge let-down.

Then there's the bizarre situation of number episodes on disks. You get one disk with 4 episodes, the next with 5, then one with 2, and one with just 1 episode. Two disks for three episodes at one point in the series. And for the disks containing 5 episodes on one disk, the menu on the disk is such that you have to scroll to page 2 to view the fifth episode, further reinforcing the badly designed menu interface which appears to have reused a menu from elsewhere and then tried to be amended to fit Heroes.

A very keenly priced boxset. The series is brilliant and I am enjoying most episodes. I do think that it has reached it's natural end so glad that there is no 5th series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fallen hero 28 Dec 2012
By Reviewify.co.uk HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Heros was one of those shows that came out of no where and amazed the world...then failed to live up to the hype. If you've not seen it don't worry, I'm not about to spoil the story. The basics revolve around people who find they have different abilities. This in itself is nothing new and it's been done before on TV. However, it was the script writing that made this show a must see.

If you like X-Men/Alias/X-Files/Fringe you'll be easily drawn into the world. The first series is fantastic, and while the 3 series that followed were good they never lived up to the first.

If you've never seen the show I highly recommend it, makes for fantastic viewing during the cold winter nights. Just be prepared for a bit of an annoying ending that will leaving you wanting more at the end of series 4!
