DVD Review: Heroes: Season 1


Ordinary people with extraordinary abilities link a group of complete strangers that may determine the future of the world when Heroes: Season 1 comes to DVD and HD DVD August 28, 2007 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The most acclaimed and addictive new series of the 2006-2007 television season, Heroes: Season 1, which was created by Tim Kring (“Providence,” “Crossing Jordan”), features an extraordinary ensemble cast that includes Sendhil Ramamurthy (Blind Guy Driving), Milo Ventimiglia (“Gilmore Girls”), Adrian Pasdar (“Judging Amy”), Hayden Panettiere (Bring It On: All Or Nothing), Ali Larter (Final Destination), Noah Gray-Cabey, (“My Wife & Kids”), Leonard Roberts (“Smallville”), Santiago Cabrera (“Empire”), Tawny Cypress (NBC’s “Third Watch”), Greg Grunberg (“Alias”), Masi Oka, (NBC’s “Scrubs”), Jack Colman (“Dynasty”), James Kyson Lee (NBC’s “Las Vegas”), Zachary Quinto (“24”), Ashley Crow (NBC’s “American Dreams”), Cristine Rose (NBC’s “Friends”), Jimmy Jean-Louis (Monster-in-Law), Eric Roberts (“Less than Perfect”) and Malcolm McDowall (“Entourage”). Electrifying intrigue, compelling mythology and soaring imagination make the NBC epic drama the must see event of the year. Praised for its “propulsive, surprisingly and emotionally charged storytelling” by Entertainment Weekly, Heroes nabbed the People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Drama Series and a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Drama Series of 2007, even before completing its first season. Heroes is television’s number-one new show of the 2006-2007 season.

“Heroes is one of those rare television series with such broad popular and critical appeal that it has become an instant cultural phenomenon,” said Craig Kornblau, President of Universal Studios Home Entertainment and Universal Studios Digital Platforms. “With the extraordinary array of compelling bonus content offered on both the DVD and HD DVD respectively, this title, which has already generated tremendous anticipation among consumers, is well poised to be one of the greatest, must-have DVDs of the year.”

Wow. What more can we say? This is the TV dvd event of the year in our books. ‘Heroes’ is hands down one of the best shows on television, and the fast-paced drama is finally coming to dvd so that you and fellow fans can relive the magic of Season 1 on this 7 disc set. The set is loaded, and I do mean loaded, with special features. This is one of the few sets that I have seen that has truly taken advantage of that aspect.

One of the best features you will find on the first disc with the 73 minute un-aired pilot. You’ll notice quite a bit of differences between the episode and the one that ended up airing last fall! Overall, all of the extras compliment the original episodes quite nicely and make for superb buy for Heroes’ fan. So be sure to pick this set up and get caught up before Season 2 premieres September 24th on NBC!
