Product Description

BIG VALLEY Season 2 Volume 1 continues the adventures of the wealthy and powerful Barkley family in the untamed Old West.

Amazon.com

Eugene Barkley, we hardly knew ye. The youngest of the Barkley sons (quick--who portrayed him? That's right; Charles Briles) is nowhere to be found in The Big Valley's sophomore season. But lawyer Jarrod (Richard Long), hot-headed Nick (Peter Breck), soulful "bastard son" Heath (Lee Majors), and coltish daughter Audra (Linda Evans) get into all the trouble and two-fisted action they can handle. And there's nothing the close-knit Barkleys, headed by matriarch Victoria (regally billed as "Miss Barbara Stanwyck") can't handle, whether it's defending the family name against the false accusations of an unscrupulous, grudge-bearing politician, rescuing Heath from a Mexican prison, or being abandoned in the desert. The drama of Heath's heritage, a focus of season 1, is settled once and for all in the season opener, "The Lost Treasure," in which a con man claims to be Heath's father. By episode's end, even Nick is calling Heath "brother."

Season 2 boasts an impressive roster of character actors, several at the beginning of their careers. Buddy Hackett, sporting a Lucky Charms leprechaun brogue, is the con man in "The Lost Treasure," with Bruce Dern as one of his marks, and Dub Taylor tending a ghost town bar. Colleen Dewhurst guest stars in the episode "A Day of Terror, as outlaw Annie Morton, who holds Victoria and Audra hostage while her injured son recuperates in a church. James Whitmore is the mud-slinging candidate in "Target." Warren Oates heads a band of bumbling brothers trying to open a stubborn railroad station safe in "The Great Safe Robbery." And that's the future Jan Brady, Eve Plumb as a little girl trapped in a well in "Hide the Children," an excellent episode that deals with intolerance as gypsy-hating Nick gets a change of attitude when he accompanies a gypsy bride and her family to her wedding. The Big Valley was never a ratings rival to the venerable Gunsmoke or Bonanza, which still ruled the prime time roost in 1966. But Western buffs will feel right at home with this sprawling family saga and its larger than life characters. Buyers, though, will be paying a higher premium for the Barkley property this time around. Priced the same as the season 1 set, this collection contains only the first 15 episodes of season 2 and no extra features. --Donald Liebenson

I highly recommended this item to any western fans.

Picture quality was very good, sound was good, no glitches or blurriness.

Fox needs to release the rest of the series as complete season sets!

"Big Valley" reruns were my childhood favorite, and after buying this set and season one, I can say the show lives up to my memories. It would be a shame if Fox stopped releasing the DVDs--which brings me to the info:

After searching for a way to complain about the price-gouging on season two, I finally contacted a site that monitors DVD releases. They said sales of season one were poor and that Fox raised the price to recoup their losses. But since this half-set isn't selling well either, they probably won't release the rest.

Maybe if all the people who bought season one decide to buy this set they'll release more. Maybe not. Personally, I think Fox bungled the whole thing. When it comes to short-run series (Big Valley only ran four seasons), it makes more sense to release the complete series (with extras) at a premium price. Most fans would pay more up front to get the whole series and not have to worry about studios dropping the project. As it is, Fox has done nothing but shortchange consumers and undermine its own profits.

It is disappointing to see that they have decided to split up Season 2, obviously taking a step out of the pages of the Battlestar Galactica releases. I won't be surprised if more companies begin to follow suit.

However, being a huge Big Valley fan for nearly thirty years, I have still gone ahead and purchased it. There should be 15 episodes in this first volume since each season of the Big Valley had 30 episodes. Fifteen episodes is still a fair amount compared with today's shows that put out 22 per season.

The second season of the Big Valley continues the story of the Barkleys. Season 2 is more solidified than the first season, even though the first season is very good.

It contains the 2-part episode "Legend of a General" where Heath is taken prisoner in Mexico, and only the help of an old Mexican general, can help the Barkleys get him back.

There's also "Caesar's Wife" in which, daring for its time, addresses a step-mother who makes advances toward her husband's son.

"The Velvet Trap" finds unsuspecting Nick falling in love with a woman who is, in fact, the girlfriend of a notorious outlaw and how she attempts to use Nick to get rid of a bounty hunter who is trying to track down the dangerous Jack Floyd.

They also added The Big Valley's first comedic episode in "The Great Safe Robbery" in which three bumbling brothers attempt to steal and rob a safe from a train depot. It's truly hilarious.

There is also the classic Big Valley episode, "Last Stage to Salt Flats" which finds the family (except Nick and Audra) stranded in the middle of the desert after their stagecoach is robbed.

The first Big Valley DVD collected every first season episode of one of the all-time best TV westerns. Unfortunately what we have here is only the first half of the second season, at the same price as the entire first season box set. There are, BTW, absolutely no "extras" included in this set to justify the much higher per-episode cost.

As huge a Big Valley fan as I am - it was my favorite TV western growing up, and still plays amazingly well for me today - I'd suggest holding off on buying Season 2, Volume 1. For one thing, I suspect we just may being seeing a complete Season 2 box set in the near future, especially if sales on this half-effort are poor enough. For another, Fox needs to get the message that such blatant money grubbing schemes will not work, we're too smart for that. Support such greedy efforts by buying this set, I can pretty much guarantee we'll be seeing more such from Fox, quite possibly with the entirety of the rest of Big Valley. Send the message we won't fall for it - and all they'll really understand is the bottom line - and it'll stop.

I bought this set assuming that at the price it would at least contain single-sided discs since it was only half of the season. No such luck, they're dualies. Fox should be ashamed of themselves. Total rip-off.

I am pleased that Big Valley is continuing to be released and if they want to break up the second season, then fine. BUT I must object to the price that is almost the same price as the entire season one set! What is going on???

the music industry wondered why so many people were illegally obtaining their music and they found out it was simple reason; the people felt like they were being price-gouged. now it seems the movie industry doesnt want to be left out of the loop, so they go after the people that actually pay for the movies and are trying to price-gouge them. i have no sympathy for the studios at all. when they start whining about illegal downloads they better take a look back at putting out a half of a season at the same price as a full season and say "oh s%#t!, we may have made a mistake"

Fox is not only greedy, they're too lazy to put some special features on the set which would tempt me to pay this outrageous price! Again let me remind them (if anyone at the studio ever bothers to read these reviews) about PORTRAIT, BARBARA STANWYCK, a 50 minute feature that was filmed on the set of The Big Valley in 1968. It's owned by the original producer's sons (Rick & Mike Spalla HOLLYWOOD NEWSREEL SYNDICATE, INC. 1622 N. Gower St. Los Angeles, CA 90028-6518).

I suggest updating it with current interviews with Peter Breck, Lee Majors, Linda Evans and some of the series great guest stars. Of course, that would require some initiative on the part of 20th Century Fox --- something of which they seem to be totally devoid.

Furthermore, FOX seems to have momentarily forgotten that the entire series has been running UNCUT on Encore's Western Channel, and I, like many other fans, have already burned every episode to DVD! Nevertheless, I still bought the first season because it was so reasonably priced.

Therefore, unless they come up with some great extra features on future sets,

I'll just be content with my home-made DVDs, the picture quality of which is at least the equal to theirs.

Children aren't allowed to post. Please go talk to your mother or father. And while you're at it, look up the word "bigoted" in the dictionary. Complants about the price are fair complaints. Your post sounds like you're talking about yourself. Now who's whinning!
