Rejoin the cast of extraordinary people trying to live normal lives in Heroes: Season 2. This season Sylar (Quinto) is not the only sinister force stalking the Heroes, there is a new threat to the mutants. H.R.G. (Coleman) prepares to take his family on the run when he realizes The Company is close to discovering their whereabouts. Hiro (Oka) travels to 15th century Japan in a personal quest, where in falls in love with another man's partner. Meanwhile, Suresh (Ramamurthy) must choose between his friendship with H.R.G. and his loyalty to The Company, when he is asked to administer the Shanti virus to his old ally. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD generally looks harsh, with hard edges and a digitized appearance. Resolution is quite good, though, and black levels are deep and solid. Shadows are delineated well, and colors appear naturally saturated. Fleshtones can be plugged up and too red. And the picture can get distractingly noisy in dark scenes. Compression artifacts are recognizable, and while edge enhancement is used, it is hardly a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #43 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I've subscribed to Widescreen Review for a number of years now. Unlike any other magazine in the field, WSR offers an incredible range of excellent equipment reviews, software reviews, and articles on upcoming technologies. It never ceases to amaze me on the inside information that Gary and his gang are able to get. A perfect example of this is the excellent speakers provided on the Home Theatre Cruise! How do you do it, Gary? I use WSR to keep up on which technologies are dueling it out for high-definition supremacy and to help me prepare for my future dream home theatre. Having such insider information is proving invaluable. No other magazine I know of helps to shape the industry it serves in such a positive way. Long live WSR!
