Pros for the Highlander the Series Season Two DVD Box Set

This season of Highlander has a lot of drama to it. This is the season that Tessa is killed, and it is also the season that Richie Ryan is transformed from a mortal to an immortal. This is also the season that the Joe character, the Watcher storyline, and the Charlie character are all introduced. This season is rich with interesting storylines and great characters. A few of my series favorites occur during this season including the Pharaoh’s Daughter and the Vampire. The bonus material in this collection is also great, especially the audio and visual commentary provided by the Highlander himself, Adrian Paul.

Cons for the Highlander the Series Season Two DVD Box Set

This is a quality set. However, while it does have a lot more special features than the season one box set did, it still does not have all of the special features found in later season box sets. Other than this small drawback, this is a great set.
