Highlander Season Two, an 8-disc DVD Collection, collects the entire 22-episode second season (1993-1994) of the syndicated action series based on the cult-favorite film.
In Season 2 MacLeod and friends uncover a deadly plot against the Immortals in the form of a secret society who's recorded the Immortal game over the millennia. A renegade sect now seeks to destroy the Immortals at all costs. As the season progresses McLeod and company's lives change forever as a major character dies and revelations are made about another. Behind all this the Immortal's Game still continues...

Season Two marks a turning point in the Highlander series, when the writers finally break out of the territory established in the original Highlander movie and introduce new ideas. The Watchers are introduced, a secret society of people who have been watching and recording the Immortal's deeds for centuries. While I can't help but wonder if this idea was liberally borrowed from Anne Rice's books, the Watchers quickly became my favorite aspect of the show, especially the tentative and growing friendship between Duncan McLeod and his watcher, ultra-cool guy Joe Dawson. It really adds depth to Duncan's character to see him interact with someone not in "the biz" from whom he has nothing to hide. In fact, Dawson may know McLeod better than anyone ever has, including Duncan himself. The abrupt death of Tessa during Season 2 may be upsetting to some fans, but her presence in McLeod's life stagnated the character, and now he is free to go out in new and exciting directions.

If the first season was about finding the show's footing, the second season of Highlander was all about perfection. Now, Anchor Bay returns to the spotlight with the complete second season of Highlander: The Series in an 8-disc DVD collection.
The show's first season ended with a semi-cliffhanger, leaving fans praying for a second season to fill in the blank. Well, their prayers were answered; the first episode, "The Watchers", picks up right where the first season finished. "The Watchers" introduced the secret band of men and women who record the Immortals' lives (hence the episode's title), the Watchers, who late become a key part of the series. Jim Byrnes makes his first appearance as series regular Joe Dawson here in what is definitely one of the greatest episodes of the series. But if you think that's great, there are even more masterful episodes in this pack: there were great single episodes like "Studies in Light", as well as two outstanding two-parters, "Unholy Alliance" and "Counterfeit", the season finale.
For season two, everything that was wrong with the first season was fixed here. There are much more interesting characters (Joe Dawson, James Horton, etc.), better swordfights and Quickenings; as well as a huge improvement in episode enjoyability. Season two also had the greatest amount of changes in Duncan's life; everytime you think it's all good, something horrible happens - but that just makes it more interesting, doesn't it? [8/10]
While the first season featured some slight grain, most of that has been cleared for season two. The episodes are presented in their original full frame format and look terrific. I can't find anything to complain about.

A few changes can be seen in the second season, which improve the box set. First, instead of three tri-fold booklets, all the disks are help together in one large fold out box. They also have one less disk, only eight in this season, and the eighth disk is all the special features.
The introduction for each disk is nice, and is an improvement over the simple splash screen from season one. It features a rock version of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, with a few clips from the introduction. Instead of a still for each episode, you have to go directly into them to see the stills. However, the extras are still there, Watcher Chronicles, the Q for the Quickening, and all that. There are still three episodes per disk, except for the seventh disk, which has 4 episodes, leaving the eighth free for special features.
There are more special features on this disk, although it's still lacking a little. Trivia, Director and Actor Bios, Shooting Schedules and the scripts for all the episodes are all on the eighth disk. Cast interviews or character profiles would have been nice.
