The actors Jared Padalecki and in particular Jensen Ackles are what makes this show special, as the brothers Winchester they excel beyond the range of a programme that started out as a rather modest weekly horror show. The second series of Supernatural picks up right where the first left off, and opens with one of the best episodes of the series. It's clear that the standard has risen all round, for acting, writing, and general production standards building on what was best about the first series while showing real ambition and scope. Buy this and you won't be disappointed...but if you're smart you'll wait and buy the region one dvds with the extras.

If you thought the first series was good, the second is ten times better!

It hits the ground running and never flags from there, building up to a showdown between dirty-but-good Ben Hawkins and clean-but-evil Brother Justin that delivers on all accounts.

Nick Stahl, this guy is amazing, and Clancy Brown head a uniformly excellent cast that is well served by a gripping plot and breath-taking visuals.

WATCH THIS! You won't be disappointed!

Carnivale is truly a one-of-a-kind gem. Disturbing and sublime in equal measures.

The first season is a little slow, but the visual style, top-notch acting and building sense of mystery and suspense will keep you hanging in till the end. You'll be desperate to get your hands on season two.

Nick Stahl and Clancy Brown head a cast that excels from the first scene and give the kind of subtle and real performances you'd expect from a HBO show. And the look of the show, from the landscape, the costumes, the sets, and of course the carnival itself, is absolutely breath-taking.

This is one of the best and most original American programmes of recent years… Read more
