Loyal readers should not be surprised that I would like this series. After all, it has to do with superheroes. But not the type you would typically find in comic books.
Heroes is done in the vein of Unbreakable, where ordinary people discover they have powers. Tim Kring does a great job of setting up a universe within our existing world where it seems logical and possible for these things to happen.
The box set has the entire first season, plus the original pilot that was never aired.
My advice: If you are not watching the show now, get caught up with this set and then get caught up with the second season.
