“Heroes” second season was cut short by the writer’s strike and the new season two DVD highlights just how much shorter with a case that contains only four DVDs, compared with seven for season one. But enough griping, the season two DVD is chock full of bonus features, including a glimpse at season three, which is being heavily promoted on NBC. As always it’s great to watch the episodes again to delve deeper into the “Heroes” anthology and get a refresher course on the characters and story as a whole.
