    Product Description

    Rejoin the epic and suspenseful phenomenon as Heroes: Season 2 arrives on DVD! Experience all the new and exciting twists of the astonishing series in this 4-disc set that includes every gripping Season 2 episode. Plus, see what could have been with exclusive bonus features that reveal the untold stories that never aired and an alternate ending to the season finale, where the fate of humanity takes an ominous turn when Peter fails to catch the vial containing the deadly virus.

    Don't believe the hype: though some critics and viewers decried the sophomore season of the hit fantasy series Heroes, the core of the program remained as strong as in its debut network run. To be sure, the 2007-2008 Writers Guild strike hobbled the show, and producers stumbled by stranding two of its most intriguing characters: Super-charged Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) is taken out of the action after being struck with amnesia, while Hiro (Masi Oka) is sent to feudal Japan, where he encounters his own idol, Takezo Kenzei (David Anders). Both are overcomplicated story arcs, even by Heroes standards, and their connection to the rest of the season occasionally requires some mental gymnastics. But the crux of the season--the Company's development of the power-draining Shanti virus and its potentially devastating effects on both average citizens and superhumans like Niki Sanders (Ali Larter), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis) and primary villain Sylar (Zachary Quinto)--is solid, gripping material. The introduction of new characters like the lethal Maya (Dania Ramirez) and Kristen Bell as the electrically charged (in both the literal and figurative sense) Elle Bishop also up the dramatic stakes, even if their presence may require a scorecard for some viewers. In short, the few kinks in the armor of Heroes: Season 2 ultimately don't detract from the show's drive and vision. Season two spreads its supplemental features across all four of its discs; chief among these are commentary tracks by the cast and crew on all eleven episodes. The participating talent ranges from creator Tim Kring and stars Ventimiglia, Oka, Quinto and Greg Grunberg to composers Lisa Coleman and Wendy Melvoin, which helps to provide a wide variety of information about almost every aspect of the show's production. Featurettes cover everything from the history of Takezo Kenzei to in-depth looks at scenes from the season, while "Untold Stories" explores storylines that were left unfinished due to the writers' strike. The key extras are, of course, the alternate ending to the season finale (which is unfortunately revealed by the rear cover-art text) and an info-heavy sneak peek at Season 3. --Paul Gaita

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the quality of Season 1 but still good June 26, 2008
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Season One of Heroes was phenomenal; I really got invested into the characters and their wild stories. It was funny, exciting, dark and unique. Season 2 dipped in quality a bit, partly due to the writer's strike, but I still found it entertaining and not as bad as many are making it out to be. Hiro DID spend too much time in Japan but it was wrapped up nicely. I liked the new characters of Monica and Elle. Matt was given more time on-screen (not as much as Hiro or Claire but still quite a bit.) It's a nice set-up for the next season (which sounds like it'll be amazing... if you're disappointed with Season 2 don't stop watching. The creators are really working hard on 3 and even made an apology.) The second half of Season 2 gets even better and that's when the show really takes off.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed! September 8, 2008
    By Zebalu
    I agree with the more recent reviews of this season. I too was prepared for an awful viewing experience, but after watching the entire Season 2 in 2 days, I was very satisfied! Maybe it was lowered expectations or the fact that I did not set aside time each week to watch the show, but either way I did not feel particularly cheated by this season. It is hard to meet the level of excitement of a first season, but considering the strike and shortened plot line I think Season 2 is well worth watching and owning!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not as poor as some think June 25, 2008
    I do ackowledge that the second season of Heroes was a let-down in some ways. Even the producers have admitted they made the mistake of assuming fans wanted the same slow build as the first year and the plot of Hiro in Japan dragged too long. But it does come together with great bits, none as good as the introduction of Kristen Bell as the wonderfully psychotic Elle. Despite his presence in a poor plot, Sylar is still a great menace to watch and the Adam Monroe character is inspired as well. I do think the writers had planned for the reast of the season to be amped up but the strike curtailed it. Still, this second volume is a good way to enrich the show's history and, while not as great as the first season, is still better thrills, drama and even laughs than most network shows today. Plus, I'm sure the commentaries will touch on the problems it had and deleted scenes might help as well, making it a must have, whatever the price.

    Warning! Minor Spoilers!

    Well, the previews promised that we'd see some huge revelations about our heroes, but as typical with previews, they lied. Yeah HRG was more like it was when we first met him, but apart from that I didn't feel that anyone was any different that usual.

    This episode was marginally better than the first four, but it perpetuates the season-long problem of getting any meaningful narrative going. Season One started off with a sense of wonder as we saw our various heroes learn about their powers and gradually get to know each other. Season Two started by busting up everything that had been gained in Season One. I think it was a titanic writing decision to create a Diaspora of heroes, flinging all the characters off to different parts of the globe. Did that in Season One. Do something different in Season Two.

    I certainly don't think the show is hopeless at this point. But with almost every major character from last season there is a sense that nothing has happened to them in Season Two, apart from Claire and HRG. Is Ali Larter even in this show any longer? Is she off shooting a movie and just dropping by the set for brief appearances as Nikki? Are we going to have to suffer much longer through Peter not knowing who he is? Fans were outraged last year with LOST at their failure to move the story along in their first six episodes. There is a lot of fan outrage at HEROES right now about their failure to move things along and viewership has been dropping. Will the producers respond like those on LOST did and speed up the narrative and focus more on major characters rather than dilly-dally like they have so far? I hope so. I'm far from giving up on the show at this point.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not the total waste that some fans call it June 30, 2008
    Heroes season 2 I think was pretty good considering that they cut it down due to that uselesss writer's strike. I mean the strike was useless, not the writers themselves. It left us with nothing but crappy reality shows through-out most of the year. Heroes season 2 told as good of a story as it could've due to the short time. It does start out a bit better than it ends though. Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) still steals the show. Him in the past where he meets his childhood hero Takezo Kensei (an excellent David Anders of Alias) led to some of the more engaging stuff of the season. Parkman (Greg Grunberg) finding out that his father is infact Molly's nightmareman was a little disappointing I admit. However the nightmare scenes were done well enough that I didn't care after awhile. I just wish that their was more of him since he was one of the fresher things about this season. He also was a little creepy.

    Speaking of creepy, Sylar (Zachary Quinto) is back but powerless. He shows that he's dangerous even without his powers though. He meets a woman with a dangerous power that kills everyone around her when her eyes turn black and bleed. She's a good person but her powers kill people and only her brother's power can control her power if that makes sense. Sylar gets in her head and makes her think that he's a good person that wants to help her. When he's really just fascinated by her power and wants it for himself. Well when he gets his back that is and he thinks Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy) can help him get them back.

    While Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) mysteriously lost his memory and doesn't remember his brother Nathan or even having powers. He falls for a women who's brother says he can help him remmember. He wants him to use his powers for bad though before he'll help him.

    Shorter seasons, should mean cheaper prices in ratio.
    Regardless of Blu-ray or DVD, it's deceptive calling anything from the 2007-2008 season Complete. Felt ripped off by Jericho Season Two being so short even though they complete the story arc.
