Product Description

(Gay & Lesbian) Since its premiere in 2005, "Dante’s Cove" has grown from a cult sensation to a gay cultural phenomenon. Fun and provocative, the show has seduced thousands with its unabashed and unapologetic delivery of sex and camp, placing itself as the ultimate guilty pleasure. Season 2 is even more outrageous with the introduction of more deadly secrets, more intriguing twists and most importantly, more hot-bodied stars!

Have you ever said to yourself, "Gee, I like the overwrought soap opera of Melrose Place--if only it had explicit gay sex and supernatural storylines..."? Dante's Cove is for you! Come to this semi-tropical paradise and watch with glee as warlock Ambrosius (William Gregory Lee, formerly Virgil on Xena: Warrior Princess) uses his dark magic to pursue the hunky blond Kevin (Gregory Michael, As the World Turns) while fighting with Grace (Tracy Scoggins, The Colbys, Babylon 5), the powerful witch to whom Ambrosius was engaged...until she caught him in flagrante with a man. Meanwhile, Kevin's lover Toby (Charlie David, host of Crash Test Mommy) struggles to protect Kevin with the help of Van (Nadine Heimann), a newly-minted witch whose dabbling in magic threatens to wreck her relationship with magic-phobe Iowa girl Michelle (Erin Cummings, After Midnight: Life Behind Bars). And what are the schemes of Diana (Thea Gill, The L-Word), the mysterious woman who runs the historical society? Punctuating all of this angst and glowering are copious man-on-man sex scenes with a wee bit of woman-on-woman thrown in to round things out. The special effects are cheap, the dialogue obvious yet confusing, the plot lurches around like a drunk with his foot in a bucket, and the acting...well, let's just say the cast is very pretty to look at. The five episodes of Dante's Cove - the Complete Second Season follow a two-episode first season (more of a pilot, really); the story threads, such as they are, will make just as much sense whether you've seen Season One or not. There are several behind-the-scenes extra features on the dvd; most are the usual "I'm so happy to be on this great show!" stuff, but the most interesting one interviews several cast members about being openly gay actors. --Bret Fetzer

In the second season of the guilty pleasure "Dante's Cove" (think of it as a cross between "The O.C." and the old series "Dark Shadows", but with gay erotic content that makes "Queer As Folk" look like an afterschool special), the hunky boys and beautiful girls who live at Dante's Hotel are living and loving, while still having to deal with the problems caused by its previous inhabitant, exiled warlock Ambrosius, and his ex-girlfriend and eternal nemesis, the witch Grace.

This season, they're joined by a mysterious, more powerful witch, Diana (played by Thea Gil, previously of QAF). As we rejoin the gang, somewhat naive Kevin is tired of living under Toby's shadow, wants to get a job and become more self-sufficient, which makes Toby insecure about their relationship. Seeing this as a chance to get Kevin back into his clutches, Ambrosius updates his image ("Call me 'Bro!") and tries to dazzle the young man with a fast car and to-die-for beach house. Toby's ex Adam (recast this year, for the better) gets involved with Ambrosius as well, and gets hooked on a local drug with supernatural origins. Meanwhile, Van gets further into dabbling in magic, with a book she found on the beach, learns the truth about Ambrosius and Grace, and takes desperate measures when her girlfriend Michelle says she has to choose between the magic or their relationship. The five (apx.) hour-long episodes also reveal a former boyfriend of Kevin's visiting the hotel, Adam's involvement with a gay afterhours sex club, the resort's handyman trying to seduce boss man Marco, more background on the two child ghosts that appear to Toby, as well as much more detail on the ins and outs of Grace's and Ambrosius' powers, and how they must ally themselves with a hotel guest in order to battle it out by the upcoming Solstice.

When i was first told about the show, i had my doubts. Finally i gave in and bought season one just based on my friends reviews and others positive reviews. I was not disappointed. Despite the bits of cheesy acting in the beginning and the campiness, the show is REALLY REALLY good. It is DEFINATLY unlike anything you have ever seen. While it does pay an omage to other shows, blending Melrose Place/Dark Shadows and Queer as Folk, it is a great supernatural gay drama that is uniquely it's own. After watching season one, i was hooked and got my cable provider to hook me to Heretv. Now after seeing season two, im anxiously awaiting the third season. Season two is just as great as season one. I highly recommend this show, after one episode YOU WILL BE HOOKED!!

In Season One of Dante's Cove, I was willing to look past the horrendous scripts, a story thinner than cheesecloth, and actors that practically broke off chunks of scenery in their haste to chew on it for the sake of supporting here! TV.

No more!

After reading reviews that season two of the show featured better acting, scripts, and plot, I eagerly ordered my copy and can definitively say that it's just crap.

The actors may have better haircuts and the set is an improvement, it's so different from Season 1 that all you can do is shake your head in disbelief.

To make a long (and bad) story short, here's just a few things that are wrong with Dante's Cove:

- It's not a guilty pleasure. So you're willing to overlook the lack of plot for nudity. The only nudity you'll find is the same character in several episodes; I've seen the handyman's genitals so many times I can draw them from memory. How come the main characters are unwilling to bare it all?

- It features the lamest "witches" ever. There is supposedly so much power to be had, why do they need to drive cars? Couldn't they just transport themselves from one place to another?

- The creators think the audience is stupid. The only way these "episodes" reach normal television lengths is to continually show you flashbacks. Flashbacks from last week, from last season, even things that happened only two scenes ago! We're gay, not stupid.

I hope that someone will come up with a gay Supernatural or X-Files, a show with quality writing and acting. This schlock gives all gay people a bad name!

Don't buy this, rent it and save yourself $[..]!

In the second season of "Dante's Cove" the plot gets better but not enough to make the production much more than a gay soap. Some of the lines will make you groan out loud. My favorite is "think of it (I don't remember what "it" was right now) as a vacation from your brain." For some reason pretty Kevin gets a lot of the clunker lines. Apparently there isn't a clothing store near Dante's Cove since the men are shirtless (and shortless) a lot of the time. On the other hand, this show was never meant to be a rival for "Brokeback Mountain."

In season II new characters are added: Kai, Colin, Marco and Diana, the witch good sister of Grace. There is even more naked sex than in the first season; Van becomes a central character; and Toby, the moral center of the series, slips a little. The witches and warlock step up their fight, zapping in the twinkling of an eye those they consider the enemy. And the whole thing is shot in paradise.

There is nothing wrong with erotic fluff.
