    It's fantastic! Best TV show at the moment by a country mile.

    Can't wait for this in glorious HD-DVD standard..... It should look amazing!

    Excellent news. Currently watching this in poor quality 4:3 on Sci-fi channel, so this HD-DVD set will be top of my purchase list.

    Roll on August 28th!

    Never seen this either.

    Have heard universal praise for it though.

    Think it'll be a blind purchase for me come August:thumbsup:

    Assuming I have my player by then:rolleyes:

    Gah... Do I buy an HD-DVD player for this alone? I absolutely ADORE Heroes... And I was praying it'd be out on Blu-Ray... But £400+ for a player just to watch Heroes again in HD is a bit much...

    well you can get an e1 tosh for £260 now so a couple of months might hit the £200 mark

    Yes is the answer to that question! :D As av addict said the Tosh E1 is dirt cheap now compared to only a few months ago. For just £250 you can get it now. It's a fantastic player by the way. Just think about seeing the lovely cheerleader in HD! :devil:

    See the Cheerleader in HD, Save the world!

    Schaweeet! It looks like it's going to have U-Control features for artwork and the like which will be great with all the stellar work that's been done by some of comics top artists on the show.

    Plus it looks like we'll get PiP commentaries from cast and crew.... lovely!

    This has to be the title I'm most eagerly awaiting on HD-DVD... Season 1 has been a phenomenal TV experience and easily surpasses Season 1 of Lost in my opinion.

    I love my American TV shows and Heroes was probably the best one out of them all this year. Bring on Season 2!

    OK, never seen Heroes but with everyone raving about it and you finding it for £35 I've just had to put an order down! :thumbsup:

    If my wife asks, I tell her that KevD told me to do it! :rotfl:

    Cheers

    We can hope that they may send it out a week or so earlier (not much of a consolation, I know)! :D

    Well I was all keen on getting this but the season finale was such a let down to me that I'll hold off for now. The Lost finale really showed how to finish off a season, Tim Krieg and Co take note.

    I've not seen this, and it doesn't look my cup of tea.

    However, I know it has a real hard-core fan base.

    It's also being advertised by the BBC (the series, not the HD DVD), and there's no UK release date, which will mean a large number of people importing.

    Could be a big one for HD DVD - the only BDs out that week are 'Blades of Glory' (also on HD DVD) and 'Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds: Live at Radio City'...not sure that'll be a big seller myself.

    Play.com have a UK release of Heroes HD DVD Part 1 on the 1st October, here!
    Hmm!

    I notice also that PlayHD's price for the full US one has increased to £45

    Why do they persist in releasing half-season box sets over here? Well, I suppose we know the answer, they can make loads more money that way:)

    I can't understand why people actually buy them that way though, especially when more often than not you can buy the full season from the US for pretty much the same, or not much more than a half-season over here.

    Missed the Playhd offer at £35 so just pre-ordered with Amazon.com using the existing 10% off and using a new "tvguide5" code for an additional 5% off it works out at $66.45 including delivery.

    My last 3 parcels from them have had 3 or 4 dvds in them and have avoided customs so fingers crossed Heroes will too!

    Awesome tv show for anyone who hasn't seen it - and it deserves to be watched in HD & DD5.1!

    Can't wait for Season 2 and also Heroes: Origins......

    Paul.
