Heroes Season 2 UK DVD Review, Plus Unaired Images

Paul Scotton from Nottingham, England sent me a review of the Season 2 DVD that has since been released in the UK, including some never-before-seen images from scenes that were shot for the second half of Season 2, but were scrapped because of the writer’s strike. Here’s our look at what could have been. There is a particularly great group shot of Jessica Sanders, Adam Monroe, Maury Parkman, and the new villain named Benjamin Knox Washington (played by Jamie Hector) standing together, as if they’ve teamed up to do battle. What was going on here? We might never know.

Here’s Paul with a quick review of the Heroes Season 2 UK DVD.

Hi there, I’ve been a big fan of this site and thought I might have something worth contributing.

The Season 2 DVD box set came out here in the UK last week andI thought I’d let you know some details on the best of the special features which is the Alternate episode 11 and original Volume 3 story that got scraped.

According to the feature the original plan was for the virus vial to hit the floor and the virus to get out. We get to see alternate footage of this happening and Peter, Matt and Nathan heading straight to the local sheriff to tell him that a deadly virus has been unleashed but he doesn’t believe them so Matt uses his power to make the whole station listen to Nathan and take orders from him. A storyboard sequence shows Peter using his powers to cause anavalanche to block of the area to stop people crossing a bridge to get in andout of the town. Nathan then goes on TV to issue a full warning to the US but collapses mid speech like in the final version of the episode but this time he’s simply been affected by the virus. Nicky’s story ends the same as it did in the final version of the episode and the only other thing really worth mentioning about the footage is that Claire watches the TV broadcast of Nathan telling the US about the virus and is shocked to see Peter alive standing next to Nathan.

The series creators say that the original idea was for Volume 3 to be based on the unleashed virus and the Heroes coming together to try and stop the virus spreading and the world turning into the one Peter visited in the future. Not much is said on how Sylar would fit into it all despite still having his character get his powers back the same as in the final version of the episode. They do say though that there would have been a big conspiracya bout the company trying to cover up the virus by killing loads of people.

The most frustrating thing about the feature is that they don’t talk about the footage featuring Sylar, Angela Petrelli and the escaped captives of level 5, maybe because they plan on using that for the new series. Interestingly though they do show a very quick compilation of clips from that bit of footage that feature some interesting shots including what looks like a dead Sylar with a girl that looks like Clair (but wearing her old cheerleading outfit) being held up against the wall by Benjamin Knox Washington (Jamie Hector) in the background, another shot shows a dead Hiro impaled by his own sword, and the most interesting shot is of Jessica, Adam, Matt’s dad, and Benjamin Knox Washington (Jamie Hector) looking very menacing. Captures from those shots are included.

And that’s about it. If you want to know anything else please ask and I hope you include my scoop.

    Tim and two others talk about where the show was planning on going as well as Maya sucking in the virus but they didn’t decided to kill Maya or not and the virus outbreak would only last for five to sex episodes. There is a small clip of Jessica etc but nothing more than i quick glance and the dvd only has the original ending. I live in the UK and the dvd is amazing and worth the prince in the UK which is £30.00.

    i got it for £23 in uk, and iv mentiond all this info in posts. a few thigs he missed

    The guy from future 2008 episode, where peters talking to the guy who tells him hes dead, He actually works for the company and was in charge of quarenteening the area.

    the company wants the virus to be quarenteened but wants to t the people quranteened die,

    The original idea for the ending of series 2 (like whatever episode that would be 23 or so, Miya was going to be the hero she was going to use her powers to asorb the virus (like she does her sickness) they were unsure whether she woulld die from this or not.

    cool image os sylar dead and knox holding up claire. i would assume it was claire but why is he in her old uniform? maybe they moved back to texas and went back to her old school. but that seems like we r moving backward. oh well, still cool.

    Claire might have been wearing her old uniform to get into odessa and passed the quarentine barrier some how. What the other villains were doing there, I cant be sure.
