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.
