Part two of best show of recent years,
This review is from: Heroes: Season 1 - Part 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Heroes has been the best series too be shown on TV in years and this second part of the first season contains the final twelve episodes. The first half of the season was extremely good and if anything the episodes presented here are even better. This does have something to do with the brilliant writing and the involving plot as well as the performances by most of the regular cast members.
Despite the more than adequate performances from the cast, this half of Heroes is comprehensively stolen by the various guest stars that crop up now and again. Of particular interest are George Takei, Christopher Eccleston and Malcolm McDowell all of whom are great actors and all of whom steal the show whenever they are on screen.
On the down side the show does still suffer from an overabundance of slow moments that could annoy some people, the CGI is slightly off in places and Peter Petrelli is still more of an annoyance than anything (although I did enjoy the scene where Eccleston was beating him with a stick). Despite this Heroes remains the best TV show to have been made in recent years and I would say that it is up there with the best TV shows ever produced.
