5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, but where is Season 2?, December 1, 2007
This review is from: Poltergeist - The Legacy - Season 1 (DVD)
Ah, P:tL. A highly underrated and overlooked show. While at times the actors were directed above the top, and there is a certain feeling of melodrama to be sure, the cast is unquestionably talented and its members are a pleasure to watch. The main theme music is truly delicious, the plots are intriguing and create their own feel of history coming back to haunt us, and the characters are quite engaging and well-drawn. One of the main draws to watch the next episode, in fact, is to see what will happen to those people in their peculiar little society. How does a young priest conquer the lusts which keep coming back to haunt him? How does a former soldier deal with emotions long suppressed within him? How does a mother protect her child in the face of dangers she never wanted to know existed? How does a woman, and a scholar, turn book knowledge into real-life strength? How does a son cope with his father's dark legacy? And what roles do these people all play in each others' lives? The answer is often more intriguing than you would guess. How do these remarkable individuals, skeptics and believers alike, deal with knowing the truth about what lives in the darkness and haunts humankind?

However, later seasons of P:tL were tighter, and much more worth the craving for resurrection via DVD. Since the show is no longer really on television, MGM would do quite well to bring us new seasons of this cult classic. I would gladly buy them all--and so would many people who witnessed Martin Cummins' talent on Dark Angel. I swear, he's easily as good on this show as that one--and this time, he's playing a good guy, if a troubled one. Even better, like all the male characters on the show, he has a sensitive, human side without ever looking weak or whiny. P:tL doesn't flinch away from showing the flaws in its characters, and that's one of the reasons I like it so much.

If you're a fan of the supernatural, or spooky television in general, I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a look.

I too am an ardent fan of PTL, and unfortunately, I think the DVDs of the latter seasons are not going to be released anytime soon due to low demand, but one can hope! Also, NBC is showing reruns of PTL [currently the first season] on Saturday nights. It was also a pity they cancelled the show after 4 seasons, just as the acting and stories were becoming more complex.

That would be a real shame .... I think the seasons only got better. I personally found Season 1 a bit weak, but I bought it nonetheless, as some episodes are really nice and think buying the season one might help getting the others realised. I so badly want Season 3 and 4 and 2 would be nice as well.
