"Heroes" - A Story for the Ages (or at least the 2010s)
Verified purchase
The "Heroes" series is like having an itch that hurts so bad. You never can get enough, and you are left hungering for the next episode. The premise of people having unusual powers has been done to death. However, Tim Kring and his co-writers have revisited this idea - making the "heroes" both ordinary and unconventional: A small girl, able to locate the series' villain - Sylar, who is inexplicably in the care of Matt Parkman (another "hero"), a policeman and personal bodyguard; Peter Petrelli, an empathetic health care worker who is baffled but intrigued by his emerging powers; and the "cheerleader", a beautiful high school student who has to fit in with her peers as her parents move continuously to keep her safe. I was able to videotape most of the first season but I had to have "Heroes" so badly that I did without necessities to buy Seasons 2 through 4. I can't wait for "Heroes Revisited". What do you call a female fan of "Heroes"? A "Heroine"? A "she-hero"?

Better than I expected it to be
Verified purchase
I really don't understand why people are always complaining about this season. for the most part I think people are unfair to the second
season of this really terrific show. the second season was short and yes, it was pushed. I agree with that. But that year was short for almost every other show on any network, which was not their fault and that's what's irritating is everybody's blaming the writers for a season that was short due to the writers' strike. and that's not fair to the show. but even with just 11 episodes I thought it was great, it surpassed my expectations of it. I'd been hearing people going on and on about it saying how awful it was. and then I watched it and really I was rather impressed. I thought it was just as interesting, had just as much follow through as 1 did. All I noticed that was different was that their were two new charactors' introduced and hiro wasn't connected til the end. but over all, I really enjoyed 2.

Pros:

*I loved the whole Shanty Virus storyline..it was interesting and kept you on the edge of your seat.
*I seriously loved the whole old heroes thing and how Angela Petrelli was involved.
*and Peter's new powers were really cool.
*and the finale was really great, I enjoyed it maybe alittle bit more than season 1's finale and before you get upset or anything I loved
the first seasons' finale,But I will say that you had a pretty good idea what was going to happen in the end of season 1, even though their were twists and turns. to where in two, you weren't sure. it was a bit of a mystery..and Nathan getting shot in the end of 2. that was edge of your seat material.

cons:
*the only bad thing about the seasons was that it was too short and the fact that I wasn't too crazy about the hiro in the past part of the storyline but once I realized that it connected to not just Kensei, but Adam Monroe. it was really great story telling.

That's one of the things I respect most about the show. Love it or hate it. they know who they are and they don't try to be something their not. some of the storylines they've done on this show I haven't seen done on another t.v. show so I'll give them credit where credit is due. but I just didn't get all of the season 2 haters. I was nervous until I recieved the dvd and watched it and I wandered. what really was peoples' problem.
Ofcourse one would be better. it was more gripping and entertaining. their was more episodes. more storylines. I think that would be a given. People should blame the writers' strike. Not one single a show. this happened to every show. the only difference is this is a show with a lot of storyline and when it's pushed, you see it more clearly. but I enjoyed the season. either way.

Difficult to judge, but not as good as the first season
Verified purchase
If you're like me, the first season of Heroes had you hooked. But thanks to a writer's strike mid-season, Heroes fell flat in Season 2. The storyline gets rushed and muddled. Characters seem to act oddly. Sure, the potential for greatness remained, but you're getting into murkier waters. It's worth watching if you enjoy the series and want to keep up with what's happening with the characters, but if I had to pinpoint where the series went astray, this season would be it. Season 3 was a valiant attempt to right the Heroes ship, but by season 4, you didn't know who to trust or what to believe. It's a shame that the series was cancelled and was never able to recover to recapture the greatness of Season 1. Moral of the story: don't let your writers strike mid-season. It has a tendency to throw a wrench in an otherwise great series.

This is the best way to enjoy Season 2.
Verified purchase
I think this is the best way to see Season 2 of "Heroes." Low expectations, given the weak word-of-mouth, and the pristine AV quality of Blu-ray. And you don't have to wait a week to get your next fix.

I loved every minute of this season. Especially when you peruse the extras, and see how this may have all played out if not for the writer's strike. Every episode has a cliff-hanger, and each subsequent one delivers several pay-offs and knockout moments that will keep you up at night.

Seriously, I found myself completely engaged with the whole cast. The numerous complaints that they "spent too much time" with our heroes' individual stories is unfounded, as you can clearly see they would have been all heading to Odessa, Texas had it been a full season.

The actors do some of their best work to date. Soecifically, Hayden Panettiere and Masi Oka are flat-out amazing. The range they show across these eleven episodes is astonishing. Every one else, for the most part, excels as well. Except maybe the whole Mexican-immigration-black-eyeball storyline, which is only really highlighted by the impossibly creepy Sylar performance of Zachary Quinto.

The plots have great twists, great action sequences...the visuals are terrific, as you'd expect. It's all delivered flawlessly on these four BD discs. Again, check out the extras, which fill out the story nicely.

And I finished it JUST in time for the new season, for which now I simply cannot wait!

A fun ride!

Everyone give Season two crap and prior to seeing it I too was hesitant but I gave Heroes the benefit of the doubt(as everyone else should) and watched it moving all other comments to the back of my head. I was very suprised at the quality of S2. It was fun! Seriously you have Hiro in 1671 Japan working with his hero who has a ability of regeneration to spice things up(just watch what happens when Hiro gets back!). One of Issac Mendez's last pieces of work before he got Sylar-ized shows HRG getting shot in the eye as Claire is with some boy. To top all this off Peter has amnesia and goes into the future to discover 93% of the worl's population will die form a lethal virus. Seriously look at all these storylines and imagine how they all mesh together, what they weave is a epic story.

Sure it's short, less than half the size of S1, that a shame too, seeing how many storylines they had planned(plans included in the extras). This season was still not even remotely considered bad.The acting is still phenomonal and characters relationships and decisions set up for the insane events of season 3. This season was more action packed than season one but not quite as deep as its predecesor, but by no means is this season an embaressment.

As for the extras its impressively loaded, included an alternate ending of what happened if Peter did not stop the virus, something that would have been interesting to see in season one. Don't feel too bad about the lack of episodes(blame the writers strike if you have to blame anyone), because Kring and his band of merrymen have loaded the set with lots of extras.

This is a must have item for Heroes fans!

Must Watch To Get From Season 1 To Season 3
Verified purchase
Heroes Season 2 is not as good as Season 1 due to the writer's strike. It would have likely been the end of the show if they didn't move a head with Season 2, but the show did suffer some. There are a lot reviews for Heroes Season 2 that point out the many flaws and give spoilers, so I don't need to do that here. My only observation is that the some of characters acted completely... well out of character, and a lot of plot devices were used to move the weaker plot lines along. If Season 1 wasn't as good as it was, this Season would not have been so disapointing.

Still all of that said, you need to watch Season 2 to get to Season 3, so recommended for the Heroes fan.

Did not live up to the first season
Verified purchase
I can't express how disappointed I am with this season of Heroes. I bought the first season on DVD and stayed up all night so I could finish it in a few days. I just couldn't pull myself away from it. Then this season came, and it isn't even close. This was a short season because this was also when the writers strike happened. One of the biggest problems was the main writer from the first season left the show, and with him went the story. It just couldn't keep me. There are several places where the show just left you hanging. There are characters introduced and then they just go away. There is no real resolution with them.

The writers strike made this one as good as it is.…
Verified purchase
because, as one of the extra bits shows the storyline was starting to take a very dark turn. Another complaint I have is the introduction of several new characters, never to be heard from in following seasons. Claire Benet.'s flying boyfriend?, watch him here- he's not in 3rd season, no explanation. Wasn't the son of Ali Larter's character named Micah?, his Black relatives are introduced here, not one word about any of them next season.

I have a feeling that if this season had gone full length the series might've had an even shorter run.
