Product Description

Uncork the complete first season of Falcon Crest, the popular, long-running series centered on the rich vineyards and richer people of Northern California’s wine country. Academy Award® winner Jane Wyman stars as winery matriarch Angela Channing, who will let nothing – family, honor, the law – stand between her and power. Co-stars include Robert Foxworth as Chase Gioberti, Angela’s upstanding nephew and rival, and Lorenzo Lamas as Lance Cumson, Angela’s scheming, playboy grandson. Meet the characters… indulge in the lifestyle…savor the first of nine seasons of vintage television melodrama.

Amazon.com

Nineteen eighty-two was a very good year for prime-time soaps. Dallas, in its fourth season, revealed who shot J.R., Dynasty heated up in its second season with the addition of Joan Collins, and Falcon Crest made its auspicious debut. Neither as wickedly fun nor campily over the top as its predecessors in its inaugural season, Falcon Crest added a touch of class to this genre of infinite guilty pleasures. The venerable Jane Wyman, a casting coup, stars as Angela Channing, the iron-willed matriarch who will stop at nothing to maintain her power as head of Falcon Crest Winery and the surrounding Tuscany Valley. Robert Foxworthy, not the snappiest grape on the vine, costars as Charles Gioberti, Angela's nephew, who inherits a share of the winery in the wake of his father Jason's death. He moves west to make a new life for his troubled family, including wife Maggie (Susan Sullivan), a freelance writer; hotheaded son Cole (William R. Moses), an aspiring archaeologist; and angsty teenaged daughter Vickie (Jamie Rose), especially unhappy in her new surroundings. "I can't breathe in that house," she complains to Cole in the episode "Dark Journey," just before running away to San Francisco, where she unwittingly becomes enthralled to a pornographer. Falcon Crest was referred to as "Dallas with grapes," but there is one key difference. Larry Hagman's J.R. took great and gleeful pleasure in plotting his rivals' downfalls. Angela is a tough old bird, but whether she's hiring Charles's disreputable former war buddy to sabotage his crop or undermining his campaign for the County Board, she seems to get no particular kick out of her machinations to drive Charles and family out of the valley. What she and Falcon Crest needed was a more formidable and equally cunning opponent. Enter David Selby as Richard Channing in season 2. Until then, we have Lorenzo Lamas as Angela's spoiled nephew and dangerously eager coconspirator and plenty of dark secrets and uncovered family skeletons to propel the season forward, principally Charles's growing suspicions that Angela isn't telling the truth about his father's death (well founded, as the audience knows from the pilot episode). One Very Special Episode features Lana Turner in her first screen role in more than a decade as Chase's mother. Anyone hoping for a Dynasty-esque catfight between Turner and Wyman will be disappointed, but the two screen legends are great verbal sparring partners. A special shout-out, too, to Chao-Li Chi as Chao-Li, Angela's very faithful butler and chauffeur, as well as Ana Alicia as Melissa, who livens things up as a scheming wine heiress who loves Cole but submits to an arranged marriage with Lance. Though it serves up some cheese with its wine, Falcon Crest has aged well, and its first season can be savored in episode sips or in one intoxicating gulp. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars A vintage classic that needs to be on DVD!! May 5, 2005
Format:DVD
Of all those great prime-time soaps from the 1980s, the one that I watched religiously was "Falcon Crest," a gripping tale of love and ambition, greed and power amidst the vineyards of California's (fictional) Tuscany Valley. Featuring a phenomenal cast including Jane Wyman, Robert Foxworth, David Selby and Susan Sullivan, not to mention smart, complex scripts and possibly TV's greatest theme music (by Bill Conti), "Falcon Crest" is a must and I hope it gets a DVD release soon!!!

Okay, Dallas and Dynasty have now been released on DVD, now it is time to release the BEST of The Prime Time Soaps on DVD, FALCON CREST! Falcon Crest really set themselves apart from the rest of the pack! The Characters were Rich in Style and Complexities and the scenery was Breathtaking! Casting Jane Wyman as Angela Channing was a major coup. Falcon Crest has such a Gothic Feel to it, I dont even think the Words Soap Opera does it justice. More Like a Machivallian Play! Please Release this on DVD!

One of the best prime time soaps, "Falcon Crest" is at the top of the "got to have it" list, of prime time soap fans everywhere, when it's finally released to dvd. Leading a stellar cast of talented actors is the undisputed Queen of cunning, scheming, and conniving, the incomparable Jane Wyman (Johnny Belinda, Pollyanna). The head of a vast California wine vineyard estate, Wyman controls her family with the same iron fist that she uses to control her business. The cast includes Robert Foxworth, Susan Sullivan, Lorenzo Lamas, and David Selby. From the beginning of this flamboyant tale of wealth and extravagance, you'll get swept up in the lives of Wyman's TV daughters, the quite and elegant Abbey and the kooky, but sweet tempered Emma. Robert Foxworth and Susan Sullivan play the new neighbors who become the thorn in Wyman's side from the beginning. "Falcon Crest" was a worthy frontrunner with TV's "Dallas," "Knots Landing," and "Dynasty," giving it's fans a weekly dose of some of the best plot lines and including new and interesting cast members. Some of that cast included handsome and debonair talents, Simon MacCorkindale and Parker Stevenson, beautiful and mesmerizing Ana Alicia and Morgan Fairchild, and a list of Hollywood film legends that no other prime time soap has come close to beating. Lana Turner, Rod Taylor, Celeste Holm, Cliff Robertson, Gina Lollobrigida, and that's just to name a few. To sum up this review, "Falcon Crest" is an essential part of television's prime time history and one of the best and eagerly anticipated tv to dvd releases mentioned for release. All we need now is a release date....

2.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Sour Wine April 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At last we were going to see the first season of Falcon Crest in its original, uncut glory. However, our hopes are now faded with the poor quality of the prints used for this DVD set. Apparently WHV didn't want the expense of digging out the original masters from their vaults, and instead used some older prints that are very dark and have color stability issues. Witness the final episode in the set, "Ultimate Answers", with the flashback scene in the final act. You can't even make out Angela and Emma sitting in the car waiting for Uncle Jason's truck to be sent over the cliff. The source material for one episode, "Heir Apparent", must have been in very bad shape or missing, as the 1986 version mastered for syndication (with the Lorimar tag at the beginning) was used, which of course is shorter in length: 45:18. All the other episodes are pushing a length of 49 minutes, which indicates they are uncut (except for the missing trailers for the next episode). It's hard to watch any of these episodes. What a shame. This set could've been so enjoyable.

I think Falcon Crest was one of the best night time tv-series in the 1980's.Angela Channing, Melissa and Richard were amazing characters on the show.I hope it comes out soon on DVD like Dynasty and Dallas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falcon Crest: (will be) A Joy to Behold July 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Okay people, let's get with the program. The first three seasons of Dallas have been released, as has the first season of Dynasty. The time is LONG overdue to release the gem of a nighttime soap that showed those two how it was done: Falcon Crest. A stellar cast, an impressive roster of guest stars, complex, intricately woven storylines, breathtaking scenery, and the best musical score in the history of primetime made FC a joy to behold on Friday nights back in the '80s. The fact that the show ran for NINE seasons should be more than enough evidence that there is a strong enough fan base to support a DVD release--and the sooner, the better!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Finally The Falcon Has Landed" December 18, 2009
Format:DVD
Before NBC had "must-see TV" during the middle of the 1980's, CBS had two powerhouse primetime soap operas airing back to back on Friday nights starting in 1981 with "Falcon Crest" following the #1 rated show in the nation, "Dallas". Produced by the same studio as "Dallas", "Falcon Crest" became a serial with its own identity: with beautiful California scenery, intelligent plotting, and the excellent acting chops of Oscar winner Jane Wyman in the main role as Angela Channing, a ruthless owner of a winery in Tuscany Valley, California. Angela was loaded to the hilt and she was not about to let anyone become more powerful or rich than she. Yes her family meant the world to her, but equally important was her land that she inherited that was worth millions. Angela's family consisted of two daughters and a sexy grandson, Lance (played by Lorenzo Lamas), who had the most beautiful body of any male actor on a primetime soap in the 1980's. The producers agreed as every couple of episodes Lance would be seen lounging by the pool only in a pair of bikini briefs. Robert Foxworth played Angela's nephew Chase who moved to Tuscany from New York after his dad (Angela's brother) had died, and he brought along his wife Maggie (played by former "Another World" star Susan Sullivan") and their son and daughter. The basis of the series' storylines during the bulk of its run dealt with the rivalry between Angela and Chase over "Falcon Crest" as Chase owned a sizeable portion of the vineyards after his father passed away. While "Falcon Crest", like "Dallas" and "Dynasty", epitomized the glamour and richness of the Reagan presidential era, the series became an immediate hit for CBS finishing its first season at #13 and producing 18 episodes. This set contains all the shows from that first year, but sadly the original pilot called "The Vintage Years" that sold the series is not included. There are also no bonus features.

I agree! Nothing compared to Falcon Crest - it had everything - comedy, drama, tragedy and unique characters that you'll never find on any other show. Lets get this out on DVD - I'd love to see them all again.
