Columbia TriStar surprised a lot of Forever Knight fans by releasing the second season of the cult supernatural series on DVD, despite underwhelming sales of the first-season set; what's even more exciting about this six-disc box for longtime followers are its supplemental features, which include commentary by star Geraint Wyn Davies and series co-creator James Parriott. Overall, the second season is marked by change, both in front of and behind the camera: vampire detective Nick Knight's former master and nemesis, LaCroix (Nigel Bennett), takes a more active role in the series, and offers a direct threat to Nick's desire to become mortal again, while Nick's lengthy past is explored more deeply in flashbacks. Gary Farmer's Captain Stonetree is gone, having been replaced by Natsuko Ohama as Captain Cohen-–however, she too would leave the show by season's end, as would Gary Kapelos (Nick's partner, Schanke), and Deborah Duchene (Janette Ducharme).

What didn't deviate from the first season was the abundance of exciting and imaginative stories--highlights from season 2 include "Stranger Than Fiction," in which Nick falls for an Ann Rice-like writer; "Father's Day," which partners LaCroix with the Mob; the return of Jack the Ripper in "Bad Blood"; and "Baby Baby," one of two second-season episodes directed (quite well) by Wyn Davies. Extras include Wyn Davies and Parriott providing commentary for two episodes ("Blood Money" and "Killer Instinct"), while Nigel Bennett goes it alone for a pair ("A More Permanent Hell" and "Curiouser and Curiouser"). Parriott and Wyn Davies also appear in a 20-minute featurette (titled, appropriately enough, "About the Show"), and a brief segment in which they answer questions posited by series devotees. In short, season 2 has plenty for FK aficionados to (ahem) sink their teeth into. --Paul Gaita

Nick Knight ( Geraint Wyn Davies) is a vampire who has lived for almost 800 years. However, he has always wished that he could become mortal again. To repay his debt to society, he works as a homicide detective for the Toronto Metropolitan Police. While he secretly uses his vampire abilities to solve the city's most difficult cases with his smart-mouthed and witty partner Don Schanke ( John Kapelos), he attempts to find a cure for his case of vampirism with his best friend and fellow medical pathologist Natalie Lambert (Catherine Disher).

I have been a fan of the vampire genre my whole life. There have been many films and television shows that have focused on that very subject. However, Forever Knight is one of the best overall that I have ever seen. All I can say is that I am extremely excited about the release of season two on DVD. The first season DVD set was not very well put together in my opinion. But it looks like the powers that be are rectifying their mistakes. We get actual extras this time and at a much better price than before. However, for me in this case, the lower price and fantastic extras that are being offered, are just icing on the cake. I want the set mainly for the episodes themselves. The first season of Forever Knight was excellent. But the second season is my favorite one of the whole show. After the first episode, Lacroix was only shown via flashbacks for the entire first season. We finally get to see Nick's vampire mentor and sire Lacroix return and do more than just connect us to Nick's past. The second season really lets Nigel Bennet show us why he is the most talented actor on the show. He plays Lacroix perfectly throughout the season. Secondly, the plot lines in season two are considerably better than the first season as well.

This is the second season of FOREVER KNIGHT, a Canadian series that was produced in the mid 90's. The hero - played by Geraint Wyn Davies - is Nicholas Knight, a Toronto homicide cop who is also a vampire who was "brought across 800 years ago and wants to atone for his sins, to be mortal again".

This was/is an excellent series that was/is terribly underated. The writing was clever, the acting superb and although it was done on a tight budget the limitations did not detract from the show.

Most of the cast from the first season has returned for this one, his vampire family, Jeanette and Lacroix (Deborah Duchene and Nigel Bennett), his partner Schanke (John Kapelos) and confidante Natalie (Catherine Disher). The most notable exception is the police captain, played by Gary Farmer in season one and Natsuko Ohama in this season. The show has seemed to find its stride in this season, the basic premise and relationship foundations have already been made which, in my opinion, makes the second season better than the first. Several of the episodes are paraticularly good - 'Close Call' - Schanke begins to catch on that something is different about Nick; 'Curiouser and Curiouser' - Nick falls down the rabbit hole; 'Baby, Baby' - a misunderstanding from Nick's past returns; 'A More Permanent Hell' - the end of the world appears imminent and Lacroix's past is revealed and 'Be My Valentine' - a feast for Nick and Natalie fans.

This set offers much more in extras than the previous set, there are commentaries from Nigel Bennett ('Curiouser and Curiouser' and 'A More Permanent Hell') and from creator James Parriott and Geraint Wyn Davies ('Blood Money' and 'Killer Instinct'). In addition there are interviews with Parriott and Wyn Davies on the series in general.

The only questions that remain are: When do we get Season 3 and any chance of a movie and/or a Season 4?

Season 2 is a little more sophisticated, a little better directed than season 1. In it you see Nick begin to slide a little back into his old life, just a little, just enough to make you question if his redemption is, in the end, entirely possible despite all his efforts. They've done away with the repeated bits of filler scene and added more flashbacks, which is a good thing.

A big complaint of my husband's is that the show is inherently cheesy. The costumes, the acting, the whole thing is done slightly camp, slightly overblown, a little dramatic. But in this it reminds me of traditional theater, and I like it. That element isn't quite as aparent in this season though. What is aparent are that this show holds the begining of a lot of actors and actresses that went on to bigger and better things - looks for some of the main actors from Andromeda and someone in particular from Stargate, just for a couple of names.

So... all I'm waiting for is season three. They have to put it out now, since they've put out these two, right?

Right?

...please?

My order from amazon showed up today. I was drawn to the special features first which are interesting, but I still really wish Sony had given us some "deleted scenes." (Sony if you're reading this by some chance, please consider using the "lost footage" from Gillian Horvath) The quality on the first 2 discs is truly dreadful in some scenes (worse than season 1 in some cases), especially in ones with "blue light." The worst ones I noticed after skimming the discs were in "Bad Blood." All the Nick/Janette scenes in the heavy blue light are very pixelated. You can barely see any detail on their faces. My own digital recordings look much better in those cases (thank heavens for those). However, the other 4 discs look really nice and sharp. I'm very pleased with those. The production order will take some getting used to (I'm used to Sci-fi's airing order).

+'s: Color improvement, sharpness enhanced, sound improvement, interesting interviews, neat box

-'s: Heavy grain on 1st 2 discs, major problems with pixelation in "blue-lighting" especially, *no* deleted scenes or bloopers, low quality menu design

Overall, I suppose these are an improvement from season 1 (except the 1st 2 discs). They got more lazy with the menus this time though, but the box-art is lovely once again and the box opens the same as season 1. These are worth collecting, especially if you have tape recordings. Season 3 on DVD will depend on these sales as well.

So, if you're a fan or like seductive vampires, go ahead and pick up a set! Sony also kindly reduced the price on season 1, so both seasons are the same in price.
