Addendum: I feel compelled to respond to the one-star review given by "frisco kid"...the comments about the quality of this release are just ridiculous and completely unfounded. I am playing the DVD's on a Sony 50-inch television and they look GREAT. If you love the Big Valley like I do, just ignore those mis-guided comments and BUY SEASON TWO...and Season THREE and FOUR when this fine company releases them!! (I also have the Season Two Volume One released by 20th Century Fox in January 2007, and this Complete Season Two release looks every bit as good!)...Perhaps "frisco kid" is just too particular, but it is that kind of negative criticism that caused 20th Century Fox to pull the plug in 2007, and I really do not want to see that happen again, especially when Season Three and Season Four are on the horizon...
It's one of the best western TV shows of all time. Like, 30 episodes per season. (Thats alot) Each episode is like it's own separate western movie.
Now, finally Season 2 of "The Big Valley" comes to DVD in its entirety with all 30 episodes uncut and cleaned from their original prints.
Though the show was never a ratings winner in its original ABC run (the show never cracked the Top 30 shows), it would grow on to become one of the biggest westerns to enter worldwide syndication and to make Lee Majors and Linda Evans stars.
Big Valley is a great show. This season has some great episodes with the family, as usual, fighting for their high moral standards. Even though it's 50 years old and can be hokey and indirectly sexist and racist in a way that things from the sixties are, the underlying messages of supporting your family and always trying to do the right thing still ring true.
The DVD set is okay. Each DVD has the title of the episodes on the DVD, but there are no descriptions anywhere. I had to find an episode guide online to know what each episode was. (In other words, for the next season, an episode summary would be nice to be included.)
Can't wait for seasons 3 and 4!

NO SUBTITLES!!! This is very disappointing. I have the first season purchased many years ago. It has subtitles. Not sure why they would not be included in this package. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mee
