Synopsis


In Season 2 of the superhero saga, the nascent heroes learn more about their similarly superpowered families and ancestors. Indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) and her family are forced to go into hiding in California in order to escape the clutches of the Company, an organization that tracks and captures superheroes. While her father, Noah (Jack Coleman), a former employee of the Company, insists she not do anything to attract attention, Claire finds herself attracted to a fellow student (Nicholas D'Agosto) with a superpowered secret of his own. After barely managing to avert a nuclear explosion in Season 1's finale, Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) is presumed dead by his grieving family, only to awaken in Ireland with no idea who he is or how he got there. Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) accidentally time travels to 17th-century feudal Japan, where he encounters his childhood hero, the legendary swordsman Takezo Kensei. But Hiro's joy is short-lived: He discovers that not only is Kensei a white foreigner (David Anders) living in Japan, but he's also a drunken coward who needs Hiro's help in order to achieve his destiny. Hiro eventually returns to the present and learns his father (George Takei) has been killed, the first in a series of murders of superheroes who had been active a generation ago. As the murders continue, it becomes clear that this killing spree is an act of revenge connected to a deadly virus that could spell disaster for humanity. In addition to this threat, the heroes must also deal with the return of superpowered serial killer Sylar (Zachary Quinto) and the arrival of a new villain (Kristen Bell), a mentally unstable agent of the Company with the ability to control lightning and electricity. ~ Jack Rodgers

    Great show, not the best season

    Posted

    OK, I absolutely LOVE Heroes, so i am still buying this season, and would still recommend it to anyone else. my only problem is that with the writers strike the show really struggled when it came back. the writing wasn't as fresh, the stories sort of struggled, and as a whole it just didn't draw you in nearly as well as the frist season did. still, though it was entertaining and a joy to watch. i think season 2 was more just a victim of circumstance and bad timing. you can look at just about any show that came back from the strike, and they all sort of struggled. it was tough for the writers to really get back into the flow of the show right away, and with the NBC execs and the producers pushing them to crank out episodes so they can be back in the game right away, it caused a bit of a slump. i'm a little curious as to how there are so many episodes on these discs, when the season 2 was pretty short. are they going to include the NBC.com Webisodes or some of the original Villians shorts? All-in-all, you can complain all you want about how season 2 wasn't that good, but if you enjoy the show as a whole and want to get caught up before season 3 kicks in, i highly suggest picking this up. also Kristen Bell is in season 2, and boy is she fun to watch!

    The heroes learn more about their super powers families and ancestors. Indestructible cheerleader and her family are forced to go into hiding, because the company wants to kill her, and the story of the others continues developing and makes more sense Hiro is between past and future trying to fix his journey. Hiro eventually returns to the present and learns his father has been killed, As the murders continue, it becomes clear that is an act of revenge connected to a deadly virus that could spell disaster for humanity. In addition to this threat, the heroes must also deal with the return of Sylar and the arrival of a new villain, a mentally unstable agent of the Company with the ability to control lightning and electricity.

    Ever since i heard about this show i had heard great things about it but it never seemed that interesting to me. The commercials for this show made it look really boring and un-interesting. So i decided to give this show a shot just to see if a couple of my friends were right about this show. In the past few days I saw 34 episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 and i couldnt believe how amazing this show actually is. Ill admit there are a couple slow parts but u keep meeting new people not just the same over and over again. I never thought of this to be so good but i cannot wait till the third season comes out so i can watch more of it. Seriously if youre bored at home or wanna watch someting good, give this a try and i guarantee u that youll enjoy this as much as i did.

    Not as good as the first season, but worthy TV

    Heroes is one of my favorite shows. It's a brilliant addition to the superhero genre, and unlike early assumptions, it doesn't compare to X-Men at all. It's more of an almost Altmanesque view of special abilities and those gifted with them. Season 2 picks up after the first, and is about a virus that will destroy nearly all of humanity if the heroes don't stop it. Meanwhile, in ancient Japan, Hiro meets his hero, who turns out to be completely unlike what he expected, and is endowed with great powers of his own. This season suffered from the writers' strike, which cut it down to a mere 12 episodes. The DVD has some great features about where they intended to go with the story had they had the chance. If you like the show, this set is well worth it. Just don't expect the story to be as good this time around.

    Amazing Second Season

    Posted
    iknowmyhorror

    Though it might only have half the episodes of the average TV Series' Season (like many of the shows during the 2007-2008 tv line-up) it is still amazing. I missed some episodes when it was on tv then the next thing i know, it's season finale is in a week! So i bought this the day it came out. It explores new depths in the lives of the "heroes" and introduces some newbies aswell and yes the world is in danger, again and the cast must band together to save it once again. There is also tons of bonus features and a sneak peak of season 3. And season 3 will be entitled Volume 3: Villains, so expectations for the long-awaited season premier are high.

    Sophmore slump

    Heroes season 1 was a smash hit with everyone. It was a breath of fresh air and a new show for everyone to get addicted to. Season 2? Not so much. The main problem is the Writer's Strike killed this season. All the storylines were rushed and thrown together or took too long (Hiro in Japan). There are some good moments, lots of good Sylar action and Elle the electric girl. But the bad moments far outweigh the good.

    Heroes is awesome

    Heroes is, no doubt, one of the best shows to hit NBC. The first season was absolutely amazing. Second season...eh...hit or miss episodes. It would have been a lot better without the writers strike. In the features, itt ells what was going to happen if the strike hadnt happened (i wont spoil it) and man would it have changed the season. Too bad though. But season 3...man does it look SICK!!!

    I am very upset that because of the whole Writer's Protest thing that the whole season was crammed together and it was just something to watch. The first season sucked me in and I grew attached to the characters, but Season Two was just yeah, yeah, whatever. They shouldn't of started Heroes : Villains. They should of attempted to continue Season 2... Why start all over...
