Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What if you discovered that you had a superpower -- great strength, flight, teleportation, or amazing healing? And what if you could use it to save the world?

Superheroes are everywhere in entertainment, from comic books to movies. But few manage to be as intelligent, geeky and well-written as "Heroes," a solid comic-book style TV series that explores the repercussions of several "ordinary" people who discover that they have strange -- and sometimes dangerous -- powers.

It opens with Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) reflecting on the human quest for knowledge -- even knowledge that we shouldn't have -- right before learning that his father has been killed, possibly murdered. Suresh's dad believed that "special" people were cropping up, much like in X-Men.

And we are introduced to the "heroes": stripper Niki (Ali Larter) harbors a secret dark side, cheerleader Claire (Hayden Panettiere) heals from any injury, Japanese Dilbert Hiro (Masi Oka) can bend time and space, Senatorial candidate Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) is able to fly, his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) can copy others' powers, a cop Matt (Greg Grunberg) can read minds, and junkie artist Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) sees the future. There are plenty of others that show up, but these start the ball rolling.

While Claire and Hiro explore the potential of their new powers, Niki and her son try to elude some hired thugs --and end up overwhelmed by her dark side, and framed. And Suresh searches for the answer to his father's death, only to find that his genetics research is involved with the "special people," and that a superpowered serial killer is targeting them.

Format: DVD
I cannot emphasize enough that this is a stellar example of the power of character driven TV that follows a continuous plotline. If you're looking for something that you can tune into and out of then this isn't the show for you. If, however, you're looking for TV that is engaging, intriguing, and innovative then this is the show for you.

My preferred activity is normally reading and I don't watch much TV because, frankly, I find most TV subpar. Imagine my delight when I tuned into this show mostly out of curiosity and ended the season a diehard fan. I never missed an episode and looked forward to each new one with great anticipation. I give most of the credit for this to where I feel the credit is due: the writing. The writers for this show did a masterful job of creating an involving story arc and in giving the viewer just enough information to keep him or her coming back for more. Answers to various questions were carefully dolled out over the course of the season so that the viewer never feels frustrated by too little story dragged out over too much time. The pacing of this season was, in a word, perfect.

The other reason to devour this show is the characters and, in particular, the endearing and wonderful Hiro. My favorite of the characters, Hiro exemplifies that childlike joy that some people possess when they discover they are particularly talented at something. He provides comic relief without being too silly and his earnestness make him very lovable. His faithful friend and sidekick Ando is certainly not to be overlooked either and these two make for a truly dynamic duo.

Format: Blu-ray
I'm not even going to review the show, as many people countless times have said what I already think in other reviews. I'm going to cover the quality of the Blu-Ray, and whether you should upgrade from your DVD/HD-DVD. Needless to say, this season has great acting, a great story, great special effect (for TV), and great writing. It's a shame the series went crazy after Bryan Fuller left after this season, but when he returned in Volume 4 the show became good again. Here's hoping the show keeps the quality up!

VIDEO QUALITY: 3.5

Sadly, Heroes' video quality is pretty disappointing. That's not to say the video quality is bad by any means, but I expect better from a show with such high production value as Heroes.

I'll start off with the positive: The video quality is light-years ahead of the DVD release. Gone is the macro-blocking and over-sharpening of the DVD video, and in is the high detail and bright colors of the Blu-Ray video. With TV shows in general on Blu-Ray, the detail captured on faces in particular makes the difference night and day. Special effects shots are great even if a little blurry (an apparent move to try and hide the show's limited budget), and backgrounds are much more detailed than the HDTV broadcast. Colors like blue, red, and green all jump off of the screen and mesmerize you. Digital noise like artifacting is also kept pretty low for the most part, and the video has much better sharpening than the DVD release. The text for Hiro and Ando's conversations is also easier to read. They were slightly blurry on the DVD release throughout, but they stand out as clear as day in HD.

Now for the bad: The film grain.
