Product Description

All eleven episodes from the second season of the US TV series about ordinary people across the globe who discover they have extraordinary powers. This season introduces a number of new characters, including Honduran twins Maya (Dania Ramirez) and Alejandro (Shalim Ortez), the devious and lethal Elle (Kristen Bell), and Hiro's (Masi Oka) idol, Takezo Kensei (David Anders). Episodes comprise: 'Four Months Later...', 'Lizards', 'Kindred', 'The Kindness of Strangers', 'Fight Or Flight', 'The Line', 'Out of Time', 'Four Months Ago...', 'Cautionary Tales', 'Truth and Consequences' and 'Powerless'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Truncated to a slim 11 episodes as a result of the writers’ strike that was ongoing in America during its production, Heroes’ second season nonetheless packs enough in to keep the momentum rolling on one of the most exciting Stateside shows of the moment.

Heroes is, at heart, the comic book tale of a varied group of people, each with special powers that they struggle to come to terms with. With such powers, of course, come troubling foes and situations to face, and that proves to be the case here. So this time, we pick up four months after the events of the first series, and there’s the small matter of the Shanti virus to contend with. This provides the main thrust for the series’ story arc, and allows room for several interesting sub-plots to develop too.

Yet while, in the world of Heroes, you suspect that this second series will never rank with the best, there’s easily enough here to justify the asking price, and the show emerges easily with its reputation intact. Even when it’s not at the top of its game, Heroes is exciting, interesting and polished entertainment. --Jon Foster

I still enjoyed the series, but there are a lot of inconsistencies. As someone originally from Cork, Ireland I was appalled by how badly done Peter Petrelli's trip to my home city was done. None of the actors were actually Irish for one thing, which I find astounding given that they were small acting parts, the accents were totally wrong. The American actor is using a sort of generic Irish accent not done too badly but you can still tell he's American. The English actor has a Northern Ireland accent as does the girl - totally totally different from a Cork accent. To put it into context it would be like someone with a Geordie accent playing the part of a Cockney or a Texan playing the part of a New Yorker. Then in the heist Peter Petrelli asks for his 200 dollars (as opposed to euros!!!) back. Awful awful awful.

Still enjoyed the series overall but only as light entertainment rather than the riveting first series.

I loved season 1 and expected great things from season 2. It started promising and got better, but i feel it didn't really lead anywhere (i suspect due to the writers strike). This i could forgive but i feel the final episodes were rushed an as a result the story didn't really flow. With the start of season 3 it seemed as though season 2 had basically been "papered over" with lots of things not resolved and some things completely ignored. The continuity basically was shot to hell. The only saviour is season 3 is very good and so far has consistently held my interested.

Season 1 great, season 2 not great, season 3 awesome. My advice to anyone who has seen season 1 is stick with it, power through season 2 and get on to season 3!

Format: DVD
Heroes second season is shortened to 11 episodes due to the writers strike; the strike effectively crippled much of the television industry and Heroes fell foul like many shows this year to its influence. The strikes influence was felt in the writing, plotting and general pace of the season -- most significantly the ending of the finale was re-shot to accommodate a more definitive ending for the season until season three. The second Volume focuses upon the past Heroes like father Hiro and mother Petrelli, with their dark pasts coming back to haunt them. The very basic plot of season two is a debilitating virus festering among our interbreeding modern heroes is beginning to spread, and it will have far reaching consequences. Some latter revelations in the season also sheds light upon the possible origins of the heroes genes. I thought this to be a very interesting plot development -- it's not spelled out to the audience but is very subtly touched upon.

Season two was not generally well received with complaints of too many characters, ill plotting, lack of a central cohesive story, asinine storyarcs and various other foibles. I have to fully agree with these assertions as the overall cohesiveness of season two is disjointed, awkward and the introduction of too many new characters often takes away screentime from those we learned to love in the first. As a viewer I'm just not plain interested in new characters; I want to watch the ones that I saw struggle through last year. So I was definately exasperated with the amount of valuable screentime lost to introducing newbies; screentime which could have been better spent relating the story and actually having it make some relative sense.

I brought the second series after finishing the first series in two days and was really looking foward to watching the second series. I found that alot of the story lines were weak, the ideas for the series were great but i think went about the wrong way!! Also i don't see why they brought in characters like Alejandro,Maya and Monica because they didn't really bring alot to the show! Anyway there were a few good episodes!! In the bonus features the creator Tim Kring and two producers explain that they had an alternative ending for the last episode and that they planed to continue the but then the writers went on strike so they couldn't finish the series. They show you most of the alternative ending, i think that the other ending might of redeemed the series. Anyway I can't wait till the third series comes out on dvd, I'm really looking foward to it!!!!!!

Pacing is completely screwed with nothing interesting happening until halfway through the 11 episodes. Dull new characters in Maya (with her ridiculous ability), Alejandro (who ends up being totally pointless) and Monica. Plot is a rehash of the first series but done in half the time and with no character building or any of the mystery of series 1.
Worth watching for episodes 8 and 9 (Four Months Ago & Cautionary Tales) only.
The rest is boring and messy especially the appalling trash of 'Powerless' with Peter acting even more airheaded than I previously thought was possible and Nathan showing up and saving the day by saying the magic words "I love you" before deciding to organise a spur of the moment press conference and give one of the most cringe-inducing speeches ever filmed.
Elle (the only new character who does anything interesting/can act) and Mr Bennett steal the series. The other characters (new or returning) are pretty forgettable and Sylar is getting really tiresome.
