It's 16 hours and 49 minutes long with subtitles English,Spanish and French.
After 7 long years,I finally get to see Heroes.I wanted to watch it when it first came out but because I work nights I can't watch any shows that I wanted to watch even until now.Thanks to Xfinity on Demand I can watch any show the day after.Didn't have that when Heroes premiered.If you like superhero movies/shows or if you are just like me who never got the chance to see the show, buy all the seasons.Seasons 1,2 and 4 are in a very good price right now,11-12 bucks.
Season 3 is up to $18 plus and I am patiently waiting for the price to come down before I buy it.I recommend buying the dvd/blu-ray instead of instant video although you can watch it anytime, anywhere in your device.I like the dvd for my collection.Too bad Heroes didn't last five seasons.But then The Cape only lasted one.The only reason standing in any shows way is ratings.It's mind boggling when un-reality shows get more seasons than other shows.Trash tv sells nowadays so it seems.But back to Heroes-"Save the Cheerleader, Save the World!" Love that tagline!
I bought this set about three years ago because I had a crush on Hayden Panettiere and I'm just now getting around to the DVD's...
I LOVE the concept of Heroes, a live action comic book starring a group of real-life superheroes that save the world. The cinematography is absolutely beautiful because it combines gritty, big city, real world interiors and exteriors with the graphic design features that we would typically see in comic books. Heroes had a really unique look that blurred reality and fantasy into one hypnotizing world that held this viewer spellbound. Shame, they couldn't keep it together in later years.
For the ultimate Heroes geek, there's a ton of extras, perhaps explaining the hefty retail price.
It starts out slow, giving detailed background information on each character while moving the plot forward at what seems like a snails pace. But as we learn more and more about each character, how they tie together, and what will happen next (or what we THINK will happen), it becomes quite addictive! We are eager to learn the superpowers each of them get, how they use them, and what will happen next. It's a beautiful formula carefully planned out to keep people watching. I've never seen any of the other seasons, so I don't know if they've kept it up. From what I've heard so far they've slipped a bit...but who knows.
What I like best about the DVD itself is the layout of the content, the comicbook style of the chapters. To me this gives the overall feel that we're actually seeing a comicbook, rather than just a show. I love how the extra/deleted scenes are on each disc, rather than colleting them together seperately at the end; this way we don't have to scratch our heads as to where such-n-such scene happened. The "documentary" features on the last disc are quite short, but give the viewer a basic overall aspect of how things came together. I would have liked to have seen more details on the original concepts, character creation, and stuff like that. But perhaps its best that we don't know everything; it might spoil the fun of discovering through the show what happened.
Overall I can't recommend this enough. Might want to wait and get it around $20 or so, but I would pay $35 for it as well. This series would be great for kids, and I'd recommend it to people who feel that their meant for something more than just working a job they hate. It allows us to live our fantasy through someone else. And, perhaps, influence us to make changes in our life to do what we're really meant.
