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.

All the time-bending action, the shocking twists, the mind-blowing special effects that made Season 1 Programme of the Year at the US Television Critics Association Awards and Best International Programme at the 2008 BAFTAs are working full-throttle in this series re-defining third season.

Series 3 of Heroes, the second part of which is called Volume 4 – Confused yet? (ed)
[rating:2/5]
Heroes is a frustrating show to watch at times. For a programme with such a strong, exciting premise, it has made more than its fair share of fumbles. Truth be told, I stopped watching religiously at the end of the first season ? I could see the potential, but never truly got hooked in the way I did with Lost, the grim reviews of Heroes second year convincing me I had seen the best the show had to offer. Indeed, since then, the programme has hit trouble, with sliding ratings, confused plots and a sense of growing apathy in the viewers who bothered to stick around.

So, does A Clear and Present Danger, the first episode of Volume Four (entitled ?Fugitives?), mark a sea change for the show? Well, broadly speaking, no. Anyone expecting Heroes to have undergone a major reinvention will be disappointed. There is little in this opening episode to really grab the lapsed viewer ? the script still feels clunky, passages of dialogue are truly dire, and characters like Peter and Matt are still dull, no matter how many super powers they develop. The real issue with this opener however, is the sense of deja-vu it fosters in the long(ish) term viewer. Whilst there are moments here designed to hark back to the first season ? Peter and Mohinder share another cab, Matt can paint the future ala Isaac ? overall there is nothing here that feels particularly fresh. Hiro and Ando are still knocking around in a mildly amusing side story, Claire is still concerned about Sylar and Noah has apparently gone bad (again). The issue is that whilst all this seems to suggest a desire by the writers to hark back to the ?glory? days of the show, all that is actually achieved is leaving the viewer becoming aware that, on a fundamental level, things have barely moved on since season one.

But it isn?t all bad news. Despite A Clear and Present Danger?s flaws, there are hints at a better tomorrow for Heroes. The ?Fugitives? plot kicked into gear from the off, efficiently, and crucially for a show with so many characters, quickly, reuniting many of the principle stars of the show by the end of the episode. After so many convoluted plots involving time travel and who knows what else, a more straightforward approach to plotting would be welcome in ?Fugitives?. The episode did get better as it went on, leading to a climax that was undoubtedly the finest moment in the whole thing, giving proceedings a much needed kick up the backside and a sense, if only for a moment, that Heroes could still be wildly exciting and impressively inventive. Character wise, Sylar is still as compelling as ever, with his story strand offering some of the most satisfying scenes in the episode. But overall, Heroes is going to have to try harder and fight off the sense that things have gone a little stale if there is going to be anybody left in the audience who cares anymore.

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
