Synopsis


The NBC series' first season begins with the origin stories of several lonely, disconnected people who learn they're destined to become superheroes. At the center of the unfolding tale is Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), a nurse haunted by cryptic dreams who believes he's meant to do great things with his life. Peter tries to convince his politico brother Nathan (Adrian Pasdar), who is running for the U.S. Senate, that something strange is happening to both of them, but Nathan is adamant about maintaining a low profile and keeping his personal life out of the press. Meanwhile, a Texas cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere) discovers she's completely indestructible, but she's in for an even bigger shock when she realizes her family is hiding a dark secret. Over in Los Angeles, a beat cop (Greg Grunberg) develops the ability to read minds, and an Internet stripper (Ali Larter) begins to manifest a murderous alternate personality. And in Tokyo, bored cubicle drone Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) is desperate for the kind of adventures found in comic books and Star Trek. (In a sly in-joke, Hiro's father shows up later in the season and is portrayed by Star Trek alum George Takei.) Hiro's wish is miraculously granted when he develops the ability to travel through time and space, teleporting himself instantly from a Tokyo subway to Times Square. But Hiro's elation quickly turns to fear when he witnesses a nuclear explosion lay waste to New York City. Upon teleporting home, he realizes he's just seen a glimpse of a catastrophe that will happen in a few weeks unless he can stop it. Heroes from across the globe gradually meet up and form alliances as they try to prevent the nuclear attack and fight back against a shadowy, superpowered serial killer known as Sylar (Zachary Quinto), who is able to murder the would-be superheroes and steal their abilities in the process. ~ Jack Rodgers

    An excellent addition to the superhero genre

    Heroes was a real treat for me. I started the first season as the show was partway through airing its second season, and by the time the second season was halted due to the writers' strike, I had caught up. When I got toward the end of the first season, I was watching several episodes a day. It's THAT good. I just couldn't stop watching. Heroes begins with the introduction of several people around the world who are discovering that they all have special abilities. The major characters include Peter Petrelli, who thinks he can fly, his aspiring Senator brother Nathan, Hiro Nakamura, a Japanese cubicle worker who can bend time and space, Niki Sanders, a single mother whose split-personality alter ego has strange consequnces, and Claire Bennet, a Texas cheerleader who can heal herself under any circumstances and whose adoptive father is engaged in strange affairs. It's all held together by a brilliantly apocalyptic plot and a villain who brings up some very interesting questions about evil. All of the technical aspects of this show are spot-on. If you like good television, this show is for you.

    the people who write and direct this show must have a psychology degree because they know just how much to give you to make you so hooked in the show and flash that to be continued and make you say ugly words and are glued until the previews for next week are done just one more snipit you will need it it is an addiction the best tv series ever suspenseful with twist you never see comming characters you love and others you love to hate and yet still others you just cant decide or you start out hateing them then change your mind the fact it is sci fi that is well written and imagnitive yet believable in a way its just amazing and original but beware the pro of not having to wait till next week may keep you without sleep till you have watched it though at least twice it needs a surgeon generals warning caution this product may make you loose sleep and say many ugly words to wait for the next season

    Save the Cheerleader, Save the World

    Definitely the best show in a very long time. This is a show that I had to be told about. My wife had gone ahead and DVRed the show. It is awesome and will become your favorite show after you purchase the set. From the art of Tim Sale to Tim Kring to the Hands on feel of Jeoph Loeb’s involvement, it is a winner. The 7 disc set itself has a lot of great features such as the art behind the show, all 23 episodes including a 73 minute original Pilot that shows you what could’ve been, documentaries, commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and deleted scenes. The video transfer on DVD looks great and sound is amazing for a TV show. And who doesn’t love 16x9! Stop what you’re doing and go get it, trust me.

    must say, I have been pretty excited about this upcoming series. A TV show about superheroes with complex plots and a large cast, not to mention the fact that it isn’t a hokey send up like some past series – Birds of Prey comes to mind pretty fast – all these things had me jazzed for the pilot. The show really hit the ground running, unfortunately a lot of the episode had already been seen in the previews. For me, that made it a bit anti-climactic. The good thing was the introduction of a villain character and revelation as to who in the cast he has connections with. This “villain” is sure to be a large part of the series as we see how these people actually got their powers.

    Favorite Series purchase of this year

    Heroes Season 1 is by far the best entertainment investment we've made this year. It has tons of extras and each time you watch it you notice more details, different things come to life each episode. I definitly would recommend this to both people who have already seen Heroes when it was on tv and people who haven't see it at all. It's truely like watching a mini movie each episode. Picture and sound quality is great even if you don't have the best entertainment system it doesn't matter because its so well made, it makes for a fun, action filled friday night! Its an outstanding series i'd reccomend it to everyone. Quality

    Amazing Show

    Posted

    I was almost positive I would hate this show until I saw the first six episodes on a sci-fi marathon. It is beautifully written so that it'll make you completely interested in it, but create enough questions so that you actually remember to watch it the next week (or in this case, just makes you watch the next episode right away). It's so well-done you almost don't even know you're watching a sci-fi show, until of course someone flies or regenerates. =P The actors portray their parts amazingly, and the whole show makes it seem as if all of this could actually be happening. Definite must-have.

    Love X-Men, you'll love this

    Ever wanted to see a live action TV version of X-men, other then the cartoon. Well this is about as close as you can get. Everyday humans, find themselves with unbelievable powers. And just like in any hero flick, some use their powers for good and others use them for evil. Heroes is packed full of extraordinary characters and by the end of season one I guarantee you will have your favorite. The only question pending is will your favorite survive to face off in the final battle of good versus evil?
