4.0 out of 5 stars A review of the Blu-Ray version January 14, 2010
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great show, NOT truly Blu-Ray quality September 5, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
The show is great...watched it on DVD once already. But I'm very disappointed in the supposed Blu-ray quality of the discs. Scenes are granulated and few scenes are truly Blu-ray'd out. They were so much more expensive, but you can just about get the same quality on DVD...certainly not enough of an upgrade to justify the price increase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have just been a miniseries September 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
They really should have just made this a miniseries because the first season was the best of the shows run and should have just ended then and there. Aside from my feelings on how they should have made the show, the Blu-Ray transfer is nice looking next to the DVD version. It's not the best transfer I've seen, they have a lot of murky looking shadows and darkly lit scene problems with the transfer, being that they look pixelated and muddy. Other than that, the effects look good, colors are vibrant and detail is good. There is no new features from the DVD version and the box design is exactly the same. If you are a fan of the show you should get this. If you like the first season only like me, it's pretty worth the affordable price for one of the best first seasons of a show ever, it's just a shame they didn't stop there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent July 5, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I purchased this blu-ray after already having the regular dvd set and I am thrilled with it. I really enjoyed this series, especially the first season. Season 1 stands alone as an excellent sci-fi/fantasy series, as well as providing a great starting point for the series as a whole.

Unfortunately, the series began to struggle later on. It never seemed to recover the same audience it had before the Writer's Guild of America strike of 2007-2008, which happened during the show's second season. As a result of the strike, an entire planned story line was cut from the show. This made the third season of the show a little choppy and denied the audience fitting story lines for a couple characters we'd developed some attachment to during the second season.

The show features a story-arc style similar to that of a comic book. This means that any given season can stand alone as a story, without leaving a huge cliffhanger at the end.

So, if you see no other season of Heroes, see THIS one. It is an excellent buy and the special effects are even better in high def.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating July 22, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I quite like the series but the interface is on the blu-ray disk is a little quirky. It also takes a long time to load to the point of playing (about 2 minutes in all from start up) and required me to upgrade my firmware to work on my Blu-ray player. This could be a symptom of my blu-ray player though most disks do not take as long as this.

Great story telling. Each episode tells multiple story lines that connect in very effective ways. I really hated to see the series end.

This is the best season of this show, hands down. And you can't beat the price Amazon offers for tv series. Just wish the rest of the seasons were as good as the first.

How does the video quality in Bluray compare to the DVD version?
It looks fantastic, very true to its film source. The grain is film grain, it's supposed to be there. It is the grain that gives you the fine detail. Remove the grain, it removes the detail. And there is plenty of detail to be seen here! This is far better quality than any "upconverted... Read more
