Second Stage:

This show is just a perfect continuation of the first season, if you liked season 1 you will love season 2. Some may disagree, but i think they are few and far between.

Love interest play out, foes come to light, and old friends reappear in this perfect continuation.

Finality is the word for this season, and although everything gets pretty much wrapped up, i felt like i wanted so much more at the end.

Hey Folks. This is my first proper review, so do not be too critical.

Well, first I shall give a few words associated and not associated with it

It is:
Fighting spirit
Reason for life, reason for love
Pure feelings
Good humor (sorry if this is subjective :) )

Mixed Feelings
I think the lack of delivery on a lot of what this series set up is probably its greatest disappointment, but it's hard to blame the second season alone for that. The action was a lot more bombastic and fun, the characters actually developed in some interesting directions (even if some of them remained largely frustrating), and while some of the plots evoked S1 more than S2, it felt like there was genuine progression and a through-line to this season that was lacking in the first. It's far from perfect, but it did more than I was expecting, so at least there's more to like ...
