Still entertaining, but the storylines are a lot more flakey than series 1,
This review is from: Heroes - Season 2 - Complete [DVD] (DVD)
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.
