Product Description

Jarod is a Pretendera genius whose exceptionally high I.Q. allows him to master virtually any profession. Since escaping from the Centre, the secret research facility where he was brought up after being taken from his parents, Jarod has managed to stay one step ahead of his ex-captors, Miss Parker and Sydney. Although still reeling from the death of his brother, Jarod also continues to make sure that justice is done by helping innocent victims wronged by society. In the second season we are also introduced to the mysterious Mr. Lyle, played by James Denton of Desperate Housewives fame.

Format: DVD
I remember watching this show when it originally ran, always enjoying it, but working too much to get hooked. Bought and watched the first season; excellent! and am now watching through it again with my g/f. Start with season one.
I had high anticapation for the second season, but also apprehension; 'Could the second season be as good?' 'Did they use up all thier good stuff?' 'Would they make changes that would ruin the show?'
Yes. And No. And NO. Changes were made, a few new characters introduced, slightly different approach which they explain in one of the featurettes, but DAMN fine good story telling. They will entertain you with humour, action, drama, intellegence, and characters slowly being revealled/developed. Stand alone stories with an undercurrent of deeper storylines.
HIghly recommended.
I can't wait for season three to be released.

Excellent show... excellent season. July 19 2005
By Michael A. Brown - Published on
Format: DVD
As Jarod started to feel more at ease in the world, "The Pretender" started to take more chances with the formula. Enter new baddies... primary among them Jamie Denton (Desperate Housewives) as Mr. Lyle. What he lacked in opposing thumbs, he made up for with sheer determination and deception. The enigmatic Mr. Raines had a greater presence here as well. They were soon followed by Harve Presnell as Mr. Parker, and Pamela Gidley as Brigitte.

As the second season went on, The Centre lost faith in Miss Parker's ability to bring Jarod back. She was hounded by Lyle and Brigitte. And was never really sure where her beloved Daddy stood. To make matters worse, she began running into her own health issues. And what did happen in that Centre elevator all those years ago?

The tapestry that was the central storyline for this great show, got woven a bit further. Though for every question that was answered (and there were very few), another series of questions would manifest themselves.

While Fox is still being stingy with the extras on the sets. It is nice to see that they are following up with the second season release. Season three is on the books for late February, hold your breath for season four.

Finally! July 1 2005
By H. J. Snape - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was an incredible season of The Pretender. It was, in fact, the one that made me fall in love with the show. It has, in my opinion, the most consistantly good episodes in the series. Season Two also had a good balance between the Centre and Jarod's pretends, which is always a plus. The last few episode of the season are some of the best Pretender ever had.

Two seasons down, two seasons and two movies to go.

Drama, action, mystery and comedy - a perfect combo Sept. 16 2005
By Miss Kate Beckett Parker - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Season 2 of "The Pretender" holds onto the momentum established with Season 1 and builds on it. All of the drama continues. The tale of the Pretender, 'Jarod' who is a genius who could become anyone he wanted to be but didn't know who he was, still refreshingly original. Jarod's experiences are skillfully portrayed with sensitivity by the lead actor, Michael T. Weiss. Season 2 introduces the character, 'Mr. Lyle,' played with finesse by James Denton, of current Desperate Housewives fame. Jamie Denton, as he was called then, is so convincing as the nefarious 'Mr. Lyle' that he has been avoided by people in real life because of the role! The same actually goes for Andrea Parker who plays the very complicated character 'Miss Parker,' and has had similar reactions from people in real life. (What a tribute to these performers. How can you not watch?) But unlike 'Mr. Lyle,' 'Miss Parker' is not just a one-sided person. She isn't just pure evil. 'Jarod' is very good at showing us the other facets of her character as he challenges her in ways she would never expect from anyone. Andrea Parker owns the role of 'Miss Parker' and I hope she will get to play it again at least one more time in a final "Pretender" movie. Meanwhile, I will enjoy these DVDs, which by the way, also contain one of Andrea's favorite episodes, "Toy Surprise." No spoilers here, you'll have to watch to see why! This DVD set is very definitive Pretender, perfectly crafted drama, mystery and comedy, pure and clean, classic entertainment your whole family can enjoy. A+++++++++++++

Best Season June 18 2005

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is hands down the best season of The Pretender. The mysteries keep coming, revelations are brought to light, and it ends with a hell of a cliffhanger.

Highly recommended.
