Heroes Reborn DVD/Blu Ray Release.

Heroes is the TV series about those with super powers trying to find their way in the world. Originally running from 2006 and 2010 the original series was the king of cliffhangers, though the latter series sort of lost the way.

Heroes is relaunched as Tim Kring brings us another 13-episodes in Heroes Reborn. Now Heroes Reborn comes to Blu-ray and DVD from 9 May, alongside a box set combining Heroes Reborn and the original four seasons of Heroes.

Picking up several years after the original series and 12 months after a terrorist attack in Odessa propelled anyone with extraordinary powers into hiding, the world is a dangerous place. Vigilantes are hunting down the super-powered population as they seek retribution for Odessa and those with nefarious motives pull strings from afar.

Two such vigilantes include Luke (Zachary Levi, Chuck) and Joanne (Judi Shekoni, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss. Noah Bennet, a.k.a. H.R.G. (Jack Coleman, Heroes), has gone off the grid, but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski, A to Z) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy.

Also returning to the Heroes fold are Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), amongst others.  Together, their ultimate destiny is to save the world, and mankind, all over again.

 

The series also stars Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time), Gatlin Green (Criminal Minds), Danika Yarosh (Shamless US), Kiki Sukezane (Death Yankee 3), Ryan Guzman (The Boy Next Door) and Rya Kihlstedt (Masters of Sex).

A must-watch for sci-fi aficionados as well as fans of the original series, Heroes Reborn explodes onto Blu-ray and DVD from 9 May, 2016.

Heroes Series 2 (TV)

Heroes was the best TV show of 2007, if not the greatest. But what happened to the second series, well the writers strike for one. Cutting the series run from 22 episodes to 11 episodes was bad, attempting to cram the whole second series story line into those 11 episodes was positivly foolish.

The series built up nicely, introduced new characters and tried to add that extra dimension to others. But everything fell appart in the last 3 episodes where they tried to wrap the whole thing up (and add the inevitable end of 2nd series cliffhanger).

Originally when I saw that the series had an attenuated span I thought ‘great’ as I would be less tormented with the seemingly endless cliffhangers which made Heroes Series 1 so compulsively watchable. How wrong was I.

Despite its mess of a compression the best parts were definitely centered around Hiro and Kensi back in 17 Century Japan. This saw Hiro really build and mature. But again this series did in places feel a bit ‘been there done that’. Visions of an apocalyptic future, man made disaster to be averted, new big bad guy.

Syler. Well to be honest it would have been a better series if they dropped him all together, he was not needed. With the limited run the fewer characters in this series of Heroes the better.

With all said and done I did enjoy this, though compared to Heroes series 1 this was a little let down.

Will I watch series 3? ? well yes. After the cliff hanger at the end of this series I just have to find out what happened to….. oh yes spoilers. Must avoid spoilers
