Une série hélas plus revue depuis des lustres ...à recommander pour les inconditionnels de ces soap opera.

This DVD set for the second season of Falcon Crest isn't being distributed in the U.S. like the first set was, but is instead available RIGHT NOW at Warner Bros. wbshop dot com. Whoever's selling these out there online for ridiculously marked up prices is getting them there and reselling them. Presumably any future season collections will be sold the same way. Go to the site and order yours directly.
Falcon Crest was pitched to CBS (and bought by them) as something more like The Waltons than like Dallas/Dynasty. It was only after production started that CBS asked the creators of the show to move it in a Dallas-like direction to retain the audience that Dallas' lead-in on Friday nights gave them.
In addition, the first season of Falcon Crest coincided with a Hollywood writer's strike, and the producers found themselves rushing to cobble together formulaic/episodic scripts whose basic story could have appeared on any series, so the first half of episodes on the DVD are a mixed bag, and it's not until about the 11th or 12th episode that one can see the beginnings of the Falcon Crest we all came to know.
So while this first season DVD is okay (the Gioberti's [with the exception of Susan Sullivan] are dreadfully dull and have boring dialog), it's going to get better. It's also going to get a lot prettier, as in coming seasons the Spring Mountain Winery/Miravalle mansion in St. Helena, California where Falcon Crest was filmed will be better landscaped (cypress trees flanking the winery doors, 3-Tiered Waxleaf privets flanking the entrance to the mansion and Boston ferns hung along the porch, better cars, better characters [Philip Erikson, Richard Channing, and especially Ana-Alicia as Melissa Agretti],and so on).
So by all means buy this DVD, but don't judge Falcon Crest as a whole on its contents. It improves considerably.
Sadly there are some very overexposed outdoor scenes on this DVD that did not appear that way when first broadcast, and the setting, even more than the story, was responsible for a considerable amount of this series' appeal. I hope they improve this in coming season releases. It's a great shame that what was gorgeous and perfect gets a substandard treatment here at times.
My wife and I are wine members at the winery in which this show was first filmed, a winery to remain unnamed, although if you do a few web searches, you should quickly find it. That's how we first found out about this show, 30 some-odd years after the fact. I did find out recently, though, after reading a page or two on the TV show's web site that the winery only let them film there for the first season; it had something to do with the crew scratching the beautiful wood floors which led to some kind of a fallout between the owner of the winery and the producers of this show. But we watched Season Two first, but only because, at that time, Season One wasn't available for streaming. But then we purchased Season One, watched every episode, and now it appears that it's no longer available for streaming again! This is nearly as confusing as "Falcon Crest" the series, and all of it's characters, relatives, and relationships!
While I only gave Season Two a 3-star rating, I decided to go 4 with Season One. Why? Was Season One really any better than Season Two? Well, probably not, but now that I've learned the characters a bit, I've warmed up to it a bit. I still laugh at the ridiculous characters and the more-ridiculous dialog, but hey, I laughed while watching "Melrose Place" (MP) (the original, not the reboot) too, and I liked that show. It was very funny. Only real issue: MP didn't take itself seriously, while I believe that this show perhaps did.
Well, going back and catching this season after watching the second, I started to understand some of the relationships, nonetheless. I pretty much know who is who now, who is sleeping with whom, etc. etc., and that helps, since even most of these characters don't seem to know who anybody is either. But now, I'm actually looking forward to buying Season Three, as I need to see what happens next. Or rather, what happened after I watched Season Two, which was a while ago. Maybe I'll have to go back and watch a couple of episodes from that season again, as a refresher?
Why not pour yourself a glass of Cab, buy a season or two of "Falcon Crest," and drink and laugh yourself silly? It's all in good fun. Not that it should be taken too seriously, though. After all, after you hear some of the dialog, you'll realize that the writers maybe didn't take it all that seriously either.
