There have already been some really excellent reviews of this set, but I'll add a little of my own thinking. I initially loved the first season of "Big O" in large part because of the mystery around Paradigm City. Like many, I was hoping that season two would answer all of the questions for me. At the end however, I was left with my jaw on the floor, muttering "What the....". I undertook a lengthy online search for some sort of official explanation, and though I did not find anything "official", I did enjoy reading some of the theories other fans had come up with. So, while at first I was frustrated and a bit disappointed with season two because of the ending, I have come to see it in a different light, and love it. I loved the mystery of Paradigm, and in many ways it remains a mystery, which is perhaps how it should remain. What better than something that makes you stretch your own imagination and think? I am glad to have the entire set, season one and two. I still love to visit Paradigm City. Roger, R. Dorothy, and Norman are great characters. Great characters, great mystery, and even a great soundtrack. I would recommend this to anyone, with the advice to sit back, enjoy the ride, and not expect to have all of their questions answered!
Season 1 or Act 13 left off with Roger, Dorothy and Big-O taking on 3 foreign megaduces heading to attack Paradigm-City. Season 2 picks up where Act 13 left off. Though the animation was change for season 2 from art decko style (Batman The Animated Series) to CGI animation. Big-O couldn't look any better. With more colors plus looking more sinister with night battles Cartoon Network did a decent job for season 2. Anyway in this season more questions then answers from season 1 will be answered. Roger will encounter some new villains and old villains alike with more megaduces to battle. Not just Roger who we discover has some secrets however every character will discover he or she destiny. Plus the mystery of what happen 40 years ago will be slighty answered in the end but pay close attention to the final 6 Acts of this series or you will loose some important vital information about the series. The ending is a bit confusing thanks to Cartoon Network ending the series at 26 Acts which the creator recently quoted that the series suppose to have another 13-26 Acts remaining however it's up to the fans to decided if they want another season or two of the Big-O which I wouldn't mind. I want answers for what season 2 started only time will tell when. Overall it's a good series worth watching along with season 1 has Roger Smith The Negotiator will once again must save Paradigm City with his trusty partner Dorothy Wayneright, and The Big-O.
