Product Description

The ancient struggle between heroes and villains continues among the skyscrapers and bridges of a modern metropolis as GARGOYLES returns for a second season. It's an adventure 1,000 years in the making! The suspense builds in Season 2 as archenemy Demona unleashes a plot to turn the entire population of New York into statues, and flashbacks reveal even more of the history of these legendary figures. Enjoy the first 26 episodes of the second season of GARGOYLES in this special 3-disc DVD set complete with hours of exclusive, fan-requested bonus features.

Amazon.com

A little more complicated but no less intelligent than the first season, the animated Gargoyles: Season 2, Volume 1 follows the further adventures of the ancient Scots clan of gargoyles relocated to modern Manhattan and freed from a curse that had turned them to stone. Still sworn to protect their new, adopted city while dealing with the underhanded, sometimes criminal machinations of the man who lifted the curse--billionaire Xanatos (voice by Jonathan Frakes)--gargoyles leader Goliath (Keith David) and his fellow misfits cope with consequences of some very modern problems (genetic engineering, pirate television) as well as some from the days of magic (time travel, evil spells).

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

Finally, the first half of season 2 of "Gargoyles" is coming out. And it is spectacular. Season one was great, but season two is when "Gargoyles" becomes legendary.

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

Metamorphosis

Legion

A Lighthouse In the Sea of Time

The Mirror

The Silver Falcon

Eye of the Beholder

Vows

City of Stone Parts 1-4

High Noon

Outfoxed

Revelations

Double Jeopardy

Upgrade

Protection

The Cage

The Price

Avalon Parts 1-3

Shadows of the Past

Heritage

Kingdom

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.

Anyone who bought the Season One DVD is hopefully aware of what a brilliantly conceived and executed series Gargoyles is. The first season of this show introduced us to a world that, while farfetched, was also down to Earth in its setting, storytelling and central themes; a world with a diverse and interesting cast of characters; a world that keeps you guessing just where things are going to lead next.

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.

I am a Christian myself, and I apologize, I have not seen this show. I just wanted to respond to the Christian reviewer who went off about the show being demonic because of the appearance of the characters. There are creatures all over the face of the earth with horns and that are violent and aggressive and are not attractive by human standards. That doesn't mean they are demonic or evil. Sharks, alligators, rams, bats, all sorts of creatures that have what people consider evil by their looks or acts are creatures made of God like everything else on the earth. It is what is within and not without that matters. There are too many religious organizations and people worried about outside appearances who tell people what to wear, how to wear their hair, etc. and this is totally worthless for internal value. The value of the show should be based on the story content. Unless it outright says "worship Satan" and "evil is good," I don't know where anyone would get off saying it "isn't of God" or is evil. Okay, stepping off my soapbox.

Format: DVD
If Season One of "Gargoyles" was all set-up, then Season Two is all payoff - and a lot more, as further characters are introduced, past mysteries are solved and further avenues are opened for exploration.

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.

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
