Overview

Clearly the breakout TV phenomenon of the 2006-7 season, Heroes makes its DVD debut in this Season 1 set.

Join their epic journey in this seven-disc set packed with hours of fascinating and revealing bonus features, including the never-before-aired series premiere from show creator Tim Kring.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
It all starts with a murder. Mohinder Suresh's (Sendhil Ramamurthy) father, a geneticist in New York who is doing research into people with extraordinary abilities, is slain by a serial killer named Sylar (Zachary Quinto). Mohinder travels to Manhattan and discovers his father has identified hundreds of people with superhuman powers across the globe -- many of whom are suddenly turning up dead. Thus begins the labyrinthine tale of Heroes, a part comic book, part X-Men, part sci-fi mystery series that began in September 2006 on NBC. What at first appears to be a run-of-the-mill superhero series becomes a nuanced drama when Mohinder's research starts bringing seemingly unconnected people together. These gifted individuals include Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar), a politician with the ability to fly, and his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia), whose true power isn't immediately evident. They, in turn connect other characters together, such as Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere), the Texas cheerleader who can't die, and her father (Jack Coleman), a paper factory manager who's not what he seems; Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), the Japanese office worker who can warp time; Isaac Mendez (Santiago Cabrera), who can paint the future; Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), a cop who can hear people's thoughts; Niki Sanders (Ali Larter), a woman with an identity problem, and her gifted son Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey). Heroes unfolds like a comic book tale, and viewers may be amazed at the complexity that slowly develops over the season's 23 episodes. It's surprising at moments, too; don't expect favorite characters to survive the fantastic first season. This seven-disc set also has tons of bonus features, such as the original 73-minute pilot episode that never aired on TV, deleted scenes, featurettes, and more.

I cannot wait for this come out!! I loved it the first time around and I know that I will love watching it over and over again. I have told all of my friends and family about this show and how good it really is. I have advised everybody that it is a must see. I cannot wait for the 2nd season to air and then come out on DVD. The cast is remarkable!!! Hiro is a adorable along with his friend Andi. I was happy to learn that Hiro's father does approve of him and what he is about to accomplish. Peter was/is the awesome man. He has/had a big heart and truelly cares for all living things. Mika.... he is so cute and such a great little actor. He will grow to be a great actor. His " Mom and Dad " love him so very much and would do anything for him and that is wonderful. Claire and her adopted dad have such a bond that most fathers and daughters should have. I would love to haver her power -- invincable! How incredible would that be? The police office {cannot remember his name } is cute. I feel really sorry for him though. He has such a kind heart and everybody treats him badly. He does not deserve that. He has a wife at home that does not really love him -- but should -- and is going to have a baby with him. but, wouldn't his power be cool? Mind reading. " Save the Cheerleader. Save the world.". Wow. Anyway, this is a must see. The special effects are incredible!! The way the show proogressed throughout the season was amazing!!

I watched this during the live season. Two words, You're Hooked. I started watching, not really interested in it, but all the characters are great. Hiro and Matt, and Peter, played by Milo V. are all great. The storyline with the Cheerleader is also great. I'm not a superhero fan, and I really loved this show, it keeps moving. The ending could've been better, but it didn't ruin the series.

I hate television, but after watching just bits of this show I never missed an episode. This is so good, I joke that it's addictive. I had a friend from far away come visit me and she watched an episode. Needless to say, she promptly went home and planned her schedule around the airing time! The characters are admirable, honest, and full of depth with love, hate, yearning, selfishness and all else besides. This show is amazing, and I strongly recommend it to everyone!

This show is by far the BEST I have ever seen. I am an avid watcher of Lost, but Heroes is a show I feel I can watch over and over... the storyline is intriguing and the characters are just the right amount of realistic and surreal. My favorite hero is definately Peter Petrelli. If you've seen the show, you know why, and if you haven't seen it, you should. This show really is unlike anything you have ever seen before, and if you missed the chance to see it on tv, you should buy it right now! This is a must have for any Heroes fan, and the perfect show for someone looking for something different.

I admit when I first heard about Heroes I was iffy, but I turned it on one night and after watching just the LAST 5 MINUTES of an episode I was hooked!! This show is sooo fantastic. I was getting tired of all the superhero stuff lately, but this show puts out a whole new perspective that just pull you in. My mom doesn't even watch TV that much, and she came in during the last 5 minutes of an episode I was watching, and now she's hooked on the show too!! I am definitely buying this when it comes out!

An interesting show that's like something from the comics but good suspense no doubt. You basically have a group of people who turns out have powers and thus cope while there's a killer eating brains on the lose who's trying to hunt them one by one.

Within just the pilot, Heroes will capture you completely - it's an almost perfect combination of twisted plots and fantastic characters, but near the end, Heroes begins to lose its edge. Not only is the season finale very disappointing, it's incredibly anticlimactic. However, as a whole, Heroes remains an amazing show. Give it a try!

Finally a great tv show about heroes that aren't necessarily super. Don't get me wrong I love Batman, my favorite superheroe, and Superman and all of our other classics, but I love this show because its ordinary people. It's not because they're from other planets or because they were bitten by a bug that they are super, but because its genetics. What I like about the show is that if you believe in evolution this could possibly happen. We could all one day evolve into something else, gain or lose abilities and who knows one day we may all be able to travel through time. The show is great and as soon as you watch the first episode you'll be hooked.

Heroes is without a doubt the only TV show I actually make sure I am home in time for. You have Your Grey's, Lost, and House but Heroes is the only series since the X-Files that captures fantasy with a griping plot and characters that come alive with every episode. This is not to say that those other shows are lack-luster.. Heroes is the first show in a very long time that offers the viewer a real escape from 'the normal 9 o'clock pick.' Reality TV, game shows, and Hospital drama, while thrilling, can lose its shock value after some time. So what Heroes does is blend the strife of personal dilemma found in Grey's, the humor of House, and the sheer 'unknown' of lost into one amazing series. Combined with what can only be described as an epic plot, mixed with a variety of characters that not only hold their parts well, but evolve and are explored in personal detail Heroes brings much to the table in terms of content. The Plot: Oh the plot! The best way to describe it is thus: hooked on the pilot. Hands down. No questions...and it only expands from there. If you thought Lost had twists and turns, Heroes offers that and much more. While one may sit there and blatantly see what is coming... you are on the edge of your seat until it happens and chances are you will fall out of your seat with Heroes. Heroes plays to the Science Fiction side of television. Now TV has its mind readers, its ESP crime solvers, and its unnaturally explained phenomena, but Heroes is the first show in a very long time that immerses the viewer in a completely fantasy world which in the end is the goal of good television: an escape from the norm. While the concept of the entire first season seems to be the idea of a group of gifted men, women, and children finding one another to serve a higher cause a deep plot in the last seconds of the final 'chapter' in season one merely screams to the viewer, "oh yes, there is more... much more." Heroes, and the heroes within the show itself go far beyond just saving 'the cheerleader,’ Heroes is indeed saving TV.

The thing I love about Heroes is that anything is possible. The characters are great! The stories are good too. I love the fact that the writers gave us some background info as we went along for the ride on the characters. Yay!

I am so glad that Heroes will be out this month!! I loved the show evers since the first episode. All the charracters are captivating. The story line is mesmorizing. I hope that this show will last for a long long time. It is a definate much watch. The way the writers keep you on the edge of your seat through-out the season and each show is...well, the best. They are awesome!! They deserve it all. The actors are incredible!!!!! Keep watching so the show lasts for a long long time

I really enjoy the first heroes season and totally reccomend it!! It's really exciting and you want to continue episodes to see what will happen next!! Heroes season one rocks!!! Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli) is also extremely hot!!! Most of the stuff he plays in is really cool!!! Enjoy!

Heroes is a one of a kind show, there is nothing like it on television. Some sequences may come off low budget but overall the storytelling is what drives this show and such an amazing cast of characters that it moves the pace of the show right along. I mean even the villain, brain eating Sylar is likable in his grotesqueness and the episode where we see him with his mother, we see that he was once a normal guy. These are complex characters like the schizo Niki/Jessica, the comedic adventures of Hiro and Ando. This show is a must see!

I have a bit of an advantage here, as the doctor for Viacom (and for the TV show Heroes)--mostly I get to give everyone flu shots, tend to sore throats and sprained ankles, but the sets are magnificent, the writers are brilliant, and the acting nuanced and subtle--everything I love in an unclassifiable, complex show. The DVD is better than anyone expected, with a ton of unseen footage, commentary by Tim, and..well, surprises! Enjoy!

How could I not love anything with Milo Ventimiglia in it? The show is amazing and filled with some of the best actor on Tv. Anyone who doesn't give Heroes a shot is missing out.

I love this show so much. It has drama, action, romance, and a great storyline. If I would have to pick only one tv show to watch, it would be this one.

This show can be quite dark at times, showing perhaps the real struggle that people with abilities would need to face. Do you use said abilities to help yourself and your loved ones or do you sacrifice yourself for the greater good? Whose side are you on? No one wears special suits or has wrist watch communicator devices on this show. It's alot more of 'wake up, find you have a special ability, how does this apply to my world' kind of shows. Time travel, teleportation, flight, hyper-regeneration, super strength, radiation manipulation, telekinesis, super hearing, and psionic abilities manifest themselves among others during this more realistic view of the characters. Season two is nearly over as I write this, and continues right where the original season left off.

This show is really and truly outstanding. And, for all those comic book fans out there who are at once interested and wary of checking this show out, have no fear! Jeph Loeb, who has written for both Marvel and DC, and who wrote the incredible Batman graphic novel &amp quot The Long Halloween&amp quot , is a co-producer and a writer on the show! In addition, the comic books and some other art by Isaac Mendez in the show are all the work of Tim Sale, the illustrator of &amp quot The Long Halloween&amp quot and countless other comic book greats! This show is true to the spirit of superheroes, but is given a more realistic and relatable spin as far as characters and plot are concerned. It's definitely worth watching!

I remember I saw the end of a commercial for the show and that was it. Then I was clicking through channels and just got the pilot ep for Heroes. I wasn't sure if I liked it or not and so started watching more and loved it. My fave characters has to be Peter, later in the first season Sylar, Matt, Hiro (Yatta!), too many to choose from but you get the idea. This is the story that involves something from comics (particulary x-men) and shows us the lives of different people who discover that each of them have a power. Fave eps in the first season have to be: of course the pilot, Homecoming, Six Months Ago, Fallout, Five Years Gone and How To Stop an Exploding Man (who didn't expect to have a better fight between Sylar and Peter)? So yeah if you love comics superheroes then check out this show.
