Episodes 12-23 of the US TV drama series about ordinary people from across the globe who discover they have extraordinary powers. As they discover their newfound talents, the new superheroes have to come to terms with the impact the discovery has on their lives. Among the list of superheroes are Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), a Japanese comic-book fan who discovers he has the ability to stop time, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) a school chearleader who is literally indestructible, and Isaac Mendez, a junkie artist who can paint the future when he is high. The episodes are: 'Godsend', 'The Fix', 'Distractions', 'Run!', 'Unexpected', 'Company Man', 'Parasite', '7%', 'Five Years Gone', 'The Hard Part', 'Landslide' and 'How to Stop an Exploding Man'.
Its 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 shows been around for longer than it has, such is the huge amount of success its 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. Its 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. Its plotted intelligently, written and directed with real nerve and talent, and has a cast who you cant help but get emotionally involved with. Its 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 dont 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 its just done right. Quite brilliant. --Jon FosterSee all Product description

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.
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.
