Gargoyles - Season Two, Vol. 1
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
In the 26 episodes in this boxed set (half the content of season 2), Xanatos is particularly busy cooking up mischief--some of which goes very wrong, such as the forced metamorphosis of several kidnapped humans into winged monsters, an experiment conducted by one of the mad scientists working in his labs. A couple of multi-part stories, such as "City of Stone," in which New York's inhabitants are turned to stone under a dark spell, and "Avalon," in which Goliath ventures into King Arthur territory, enrich and anchor season 2 with consistent storylines. As with the first season, these new tales have an impressive vocal cast, including Michael Dorn, Tim Curry, David Warner, and Sheena Easton. --Tom Keogh

Among these first 26 episodes are "City of Stone", the four-part story that reveals the secrets of Demona and Macbeth. We also get the "Avalon" three-parter, where we finally learn the fate of the gargoyle eggs.
Here's a list of all the episodes in this set:
Leader of the Pack
A Lighthouse In the Sea of Time
The Silver Falcon
Eye of the Beholder
City of Stone Parts 1-4
Avalon Parts 1-3
Shadows of the Past
Extras will include an Audio Commentary on all four parts of City of Stone by Greg Weisman, Frank Paur and Michael Reaves. Episode Introductions by Greg Weisman, and the Gathering of the Cast and Crew featurette.
In short (yeah, right), buy this set. You won't regret it.
Back when I was a snot-nosed freshman in the summer of 1995 (soon to become a not-as-snot-nosed sophomore) the first 13 episodes of this show had me wondering just how it could possibly get better. Imagine my shock when, on Labor Day 1995, that question was answered. Well, to be honest, I was hiking that weekend, and so missed the kickoff of the second season. I actually wasn't very connected to the internet or any sort of fan base at that point in my tender youth, so I had very little warning that the second season was even coming. The day after Labor Day, back in school, or rather home from school and flipping through the channels, I accidentally stumbled across the second episode of the new season, "Metamorphosis," right as it was starting. For those who don't know, the episode continues certain events of the first season episode "Her Brother's Keeper." To this day, this episode is still memorable to me for several reasons, in that it displays many of the earmarks of the Gargoyles series (and one of the things that makes the show so interesting). First, is the idea that the story is ongoing. These characters develop over time. Events in one episode carry over to the next, and sometimes, the repurcussions of what take place in one episode can resound throughout the entire series. Like real life, the characters live, learn, and carry the knowledge they've gained with them.Read more ›
In the first season (of which all fourteen episodes are available on DVD) a clan of Scottish gargoyles are betrayed and transformed into stone for a thousand years till they awaken in modern day Manhattan. Under the leadership of Goliath, they attempt to make sense of the modern world and adapt the gargoyle credo of protection to include all Manhattan.
On the way the clan made several allies and enemies, predominantly police-detective Elisa Maza and the amoral millionaire David Xanatos, who is responsible for reawakening the gargoyles from their stone sleep. And now the story expands. I won't describe every single episode, as the series should be considered one whole, with characters, motivations and story-plots overlapping and intertwining into a clever and complex whole.
The clan must deal with the Pack, a group of television stars-turned-criminal who consider hunting the gargoyles a prime sport and with Coldstone, a resurrected gargoyle who is at war with the three gargoyle souls trapped inside him: one beloved, one malevolent. Then there's Elisa's partner Matt Bluestone, a conspiracy-theorist who's on the trail of both the gargoyles and the Illuminati (a world-wide undercover organisation), Elisa's brother who works for Xanatos and may be in over his head when it comes to handling his new boss (and his Mutates) and Thailog, the evil-clone of Goliath.
All these story-threads are dispersed throughout the season, mingled with character development and major/minor revelations.Read more ›

|Ultimate Ideas to get Gargoyles Season 2, Volume 2 released on DVD||
There is a reason that seasons are sold in packages of 13 and 26. Generally seasons that are produced with 11-13 episodes are called half seasons, they are released on television to see how the series will do and to cut their losses if they fail. There's no point in producing a full season of... Read More
