Heroes: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

"Heroes" comes to Blu-ray in a port of the previous HD-DVD version. Video is presented in the show's original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and has been encoded in VC-1 at full 1080p. To say that "Heroes" is something of a disappointment on Blu-ray is a bit of an understatement. The show has a very uneven look to it and features some distracting digital picture anomalies.

There is a huge amount of digital noise present in "Heroes" and it is delivered inconsistently throughout the series. Some scenes look clean and clear while others devolve into a noisy mess. Black levels are also inconsistent with some scenes presenting deep and well-saturated blacks while others are heavily crushed. Skin-tones are also poorly represented with many scenes veering in to orange skin-tones and others looking perfectly natural. The whole presentation of "Heroes: Season 1" is completely inconsistent and frustrating. Given the show's current ratings struggles, I doubt that "Heroes" will be on the slate for a remaster anytime soon, but this Blu-ray set just isn't up to snuff and needs one desperately.


Heroes: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fortunately, "Heroes" fares much better in the sound department. Presented in DTS HD-Master Audio 5.1, the show is actually a surprisingly active sound presentation for a television show. I'd like to commend Universal for opting to include a lossless soundtrack on television title. Other studios make the mistake of skipping this crucial step in high definition media with their television releases and this release proves that lossless sound is just as vital for TV material as it is for theatrical releases.

In spite of its superhero and action plot, "Heroes" is a surprisingly talky show. There's a wealth of great dialogue in the series and the DTS HD-Master Audio track does an amazing job of accurately presenting all the speechified exposition that drives the series. Of course, the show has its fair share of action scenes that pointedly take advantage of the surround channels and fill the room with an abundance of atmosphere and directional information. It's an impressive mix and stands as proof that television soundtracks don't have to be boring.
