    Format: DVD
    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 they suddenly got new attention in "Heroes," which explores the repercussions of "ordinary" people who discover that they have strange -- and sometimes dangerous -- powers. The first season is a a solid comic-book style TV series, although the second season trips over itself.

    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, cubicle worker Hiro (Masi Oka) bends time and space, Senatorial candidate Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) is able to fly, his brother Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) can copy others' powers, cop Matt (Greg Grunberg) can read minds, and junkie artist Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) sees the future.

    Their lives are dramatically changed by their powers -- some explore them, some are haunted by them, and a superpowered serial killer is hunting and murdering the others. Even worse, Hiro witnesses the explosive destruction of New York a mere five weeks into the future -- and a future version of himself says that saving the cheerleader will save the world.

    The second season is a much shorter one (because of a writers' strike) and doesn't quite measure up to the epic heights of the first season.

    Heroes surprised me with it's excellent writing, production values, and cast. Most of the ensemble are new faces, at least to the casual television viewer, and they quickly become family as you follow their adventures through the series.

    I didn't watch the show until the series was midway through it's third season (just wrapped in May, 2009), but a friend heard about it from his brother, who insisted he would love it. Well, he did, so he bought the first two seasons and decided I would love it, too. We spent two weekends watching episodes back to back. Yeah, Heroes overload! But I think it's one of the best ways to watch this show. Just hold your breath, dive in, and stay submerged as long as possible. Not having to wait a week for the next installment was great, and without the commercials made it even better.

    I don't watch much serial television. Been there, done that, as they say. But Heroes is a standout in every respect. My favorite character? I pretty much like them all (and if there is one you don't enjoy much, it's okay, because their stories are broken up and each character has only a few minutes at a time to get your attention before another character takes center stage), but I will sheepishly admit to secretly enjoying Sylar the most. He's one of the best villains to come along in decades. Seriously conflicted, Sylar (Zach Quinto) is a joy to love and hate as he veers from evil to good and back again, struggling to come to terms with his power addiction.

    Fourth season is coming up and I can't wait to see it!
