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

    I bought this set after I watched the pilot of the new Heroes Reborn series. I wanted to understand the characters and their backgrounds before I watched the second episode. I was pleasantly surprised at the character development and plot twists. The entire series kept my attention for every episode. I didn't experience any boredom or dragging storyline. It was great to be able to binge watch the entire series in less than two weeks. The deleted and extended scenes were a nice addition even if a few of them were missing some special effects. There were commentaries included, but as a rule I don't bother with them. I would definitely recommend this set.

    I actually watched this entire series through Netflix or Amazon, I can't remember which now, but I watched it completely free. Now that you have the next sequel out, Heroes Reborn, you would have to pay for it through on any streaming service, but I loved this series so much that I wanted my husband and son to watch it. It really was a great series.

    This was one of my favorite shows. I really enjoyed the special effects and cast is superb. A great show for adults and teens alike. I'm glad they brought it back as Heroes Reborn, although I don't think it'll be quite as good as the original because the cast has changed, but I'm gonna give it a chance. And when I saw this box set at such a great price, I couldn't resist buying it!

    This was one of those shows that I loved until I didn't. I watched it in "real-time" so I was never able to binge-watch it. When I heard that it was returning, I decided that I needed to watch the original in the new format. It has not disappointed. The quality is better than what would be available for streaming and that was a plus for my family.

    Heroes was one of my favorite TV shows and was disappointed that it ended without a definitive conclusion. I was quite ecstatic that you offered the series collection on sale during Thanksgiving weekend so I can relive the episodes as a companion to the new series.

    I loved watching this show when it was first on TV and so glad I was able to pick up the whole series for under $30! With Heroes Reborn starting up on TV it's nice to catch up and remember what happened the first time around.

    I bought these seasons on dvd when they first came out. I saw this on sale Black Friday and I had to update my collection. This takes up less space than the previous seasons. It's a must for any fans of the original show.

    This series is very down to earth! Could maybe use a little more action in some chapters but over all keeps u interested and wanting more! That is probably why the story continues now in the new heroes series!
