Heroes DVD dated

Fans of Heroes are looking toward the season finale of the show with both anticipation and trepidation. On the plus side, the show will likely answer the question that has plagued viewers since the pilot aired last September: "Will the 'Heroes' be able to save New York City?"

On the negative side, it means no more new episodes until the fall as the series takes a break. However, Heroes fans won't have to spend the summer sewing up a new cape and matching tights, blogging about conspiracy theories, and trying to bend spoons with one's mind to get their fix.

Universal Studios Home Entertainment today announced that the first season of Heroes will be released on DVD and HD-DVD on August 28, as previously leaked. The seven-disc set will feature all 23 episodes from the first season, as well as a wealth of extras.

The most prized extra is the unaired 73-minute version of the pilot episode, which features a never-before-seen character. Also included is the obligatory "making of" featurette, specials on the show's special effects, score, and stunts, a profile of Tim Sale and his comic book-style art, a minigame to test viewers' mind-reading abilities, and 50 deleted and extended scenes.

Heroes: Season 1 will retail for $59.99.

Blimey, that sounds good!!! :)



I bet the UK version won't get the same extras, though, 'cos we've been cheated on the extras front before! :(



I wish I didn't have to wait till the autumn to see this fab-sounding show - I haven't got cable TV, so I've been unable to see it! :(



I'm a complete wuss, hence the fact that I haven't downloaded any of the episodes, though & I only have 8 hours of time to use on the internet at my local library each week! :)



Plus I don't have the patience for long download times!!! :D



That longer version of the pilot does sound good, though - who else has done that on a DVD release?! :)

I am so glad the Heroes first season DVD is coming out. This is because I just started getting into the show and I need to catch up before season two starts.

As someone may or may not have said, since Heroes is a Universal property, it's gonna stay HD-DVD only as long as Universal decides to stay that way, too.

Sadly, there's really nothing else that can be done about it.

Do you guys watch episodes more than once? Can you? With me, since I know what's going to happen, seeing it again isn't as good as seeing it the first time

And you know, this is actually a pretty shrewd decision. HD-DVD player prices are dropping right now, with a sub-$300 player rumoured to be out in the summer. And Toshiba's also vowing to rebate $100 for any HD-DVD player you buy for a little while, it just makes things that much easier to pick one up.



I was on the fence about it, but if the player's just gonna be around 200 to 300, why not? And it's Heroes!

I wonder how long it will be before the DVDs come out over here?

They had better include the online comic books on the dvd. They fill in the blanks between the episodes. It would be a great disappointment uf they wern't included. On the brighter side that unaired pilot is going to be sweet.

I just fixed the part about "50 deleted and extended seasons." We meant to say "100 deleted and extended seasons!" We traveled ahead in time and got hold of those extras for the dvd. Not really but thanks for pointing out the error.

I wonder when they're going to be released here in Australia?... I guess I'd have to buy from e-Bay if they don't get released at round about the same time.
