Great entertainment perhaps benefitting from being almost a half season,
This review is from: Heroes - Season 2 - Complete [DVD] (DVD)
I found the start a little difficult to get into, as new characters are introduced that I was not certain I wanted to follow, but then the next 10 episodes flew by and said new characters I became interested in. As I like sometimes to do other things when watching programmes like this which does not need your full attention, I was annoyed to have yet another set of characters who do not speak English. So episode 1 is heavy on subtitles which is a little irritating. That aside this short season is absolutely superb, and the episode ending is done far better than series 1, where they ended the season (volume 1) about 5-10 minutes before the episode had ended, so that they could open up "volume 2". The same is done here, but "volume 3" introduction is very brief and less of a season-interest killer than season 1.
Where I found the otherwise brilliant series 1 ruined by the difficult start and dreadfully executed ending, series 2 is far more scaled down, and therefore I actually preferred it overall. This might have something to do with their being half the number of episodes though.
