Heroes
Season 2
Starring Masi Oka, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Coleman
Universal Home Entertainment
Release date: August 26th, 2008

After going back to re-watch Season 1, and finding myself pleasantly surprised at how well it held up, I also went back and watched the second season of Heroes. You may call me an apologist, but I enjoyed season 2 almost as much as the first one. Did the season have its problems? Sure. A lot of the new characters were dumb and annoying, and their introduction caused characters the audience had grown attached to in the first season to be cast aside. It also didn’t help the show that the writer’s strike occurred just as the story was gaining some speed and becoming more interesting. Having seen some of what the creators had planned for the second half of the season, I’m sad that we didn’t get the story as planned. Still, we get 11 solid episodes on this set, and while they may not be quite as good as the first season, they still have their moments, and are more enjoyable than a lot of other crap on TV.

The episodes on this set cover the entire second season, which saw Hiro (Masi Oka) sent to the past to inspire his childhood hero. We also got Peter’s (Milo Ventimiglia) trip to Ireland, then his trip to the future, followed by his journey to Texas. We got Claire (Hayden Panettiere) and her annoying new boyfriend, the “death” of HRG (Jack Coleman), and then we got to meet Claire’s birth mother.

Heroes
Season 2
Starring Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panetierre, Zachary Quinto, Masi Oka, Kristen Bell, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar
Universal Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 26, 2008

Heroes is a show that grabbed a ton of fans with its incredible first season. The show was so well-done that an equally good second season was not only expected, but likely guaranteed. What wasn’t expected was the battles that the show would end up having to face along with many other productions as a nasty WGA strike cast a mighty shadow on the near future. Eventually, as depressingly anticipated by all, the strike did end up happening and it did indeed do its fair share of damage.

The NBC superhero drama was forced to completely cut its storyline off, re-write its projected path, and end the season early — an obviously difficult problem to face, like a 27-foot speed bump. The show’s team didn’t back down, though; they stood their ground and did their very best to do what they had to do to offer the best season they could while setting up for a return-to-form in season three.
