Most importantly, if you enjoyed Season 1 you are going to enjoy Season 2. The "feel" is a little bit different, of course, because the premise of the first season is no longer an issue...a year has passed and the Bolts managed to hang on to their mountain. Aaron Stempel is no longer an adversary, but actually more of a friend. Great relationship storyline there. There is a bigger focus on bringing new characters in to create (mostly) trouble that the Bolts and the townspeople have to overcome. Overall, lots of shady characters with ill intentions. Really little to no focus on weddings or brides, LOL. A few characters featured in Season 1 episodes return; for example, Holly Houston (GREAT episode-"Debt of Honor") and Ed Asner's Matthew Balter in "The Legend of Bigfoot". Funny enough, the actress who plays Miss Essie in Season 1 returns in two different episodes--but not playing Miss Essie! In one she is a Greek wife; the other, a nun. William Schallert, who played a preacher in Season 1, is also back playing a con man in the Season 2 opener. Too funny, the producers back in that day must have either thought their audience was clueless or just hoped people wouldn't notice.
The main characters, as entertaining and endearing as always, are all still around-although you could tell real life was starting to take over for Bobby Sherman-his character is conspicously absent in some episodes where it would have made sense for him to be a part of things. Clearly he was out on the road touring and they had to film around his schedule.Read more ›
This superb program was never a blockbuster hit but has had a devoted following of fans since day one for it's unique blend of comedy and drama in a western setting. The cast is superb headed by Robert Brown who is fantastic as the dashing, salt-of-the-earth Jason Bolt who is something of a father figure figure to his younger brothers Joshua (David Soul, several years before STARSKY AND HUTCH) and Jeremy (Bobby Sherman, then at the peak of his teen idol fame). Joan Blondell is a delight as Lottie who runs the local saloon yet is something of a den mother to the hundred prospective brides the Bolts have brought into Seattle. Miss Blondell was Emmy nominated for Best Actress both years of the show's run and this program was one of the highlights of her nearly 50-year Hollywood career. Mark Leonard as the frequently villainous Aaron Stemple and Bridget Hanley as Jeremy's girlfriend Candy add much as well to the series as do several actors in semi-regular roles.
I'm hoping there are some nice extras in this set - maybe a few other tv appearances by cast members - but if it comes with nothing beyond every episode of season two that's more than enough to give this set five stars - HERE COME THE BRIDES home at last!!
I do have to wonder if the reason they have finally decided to release this lovely series in a legit release is because the show has been running on a cable station in MY area, at least, called RTV. They run classic/popular shows like Get Smart, Star Trek, Fantasy Island - and Here Come the Brides, (padded wioth a lot of infomercials)and apparently the ratings (it runs on Saturday and Sunday mornings) have been pretty good!
Maybe the Powers That Be decided that they might as well release the show and make a lot of viewers happy that let home-recorded shows get revenue THEY would like... Who knows?
I would love to know if this DVD set contains any comentary episodes - after all, Robert Brown, David Soul and Bobby Sherman ARE all still alive. It would be great, especially since Joan Blondell and Mark Lenord have passed on.
Now if only they would release one other show on my 40 year old wish list - The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. (Which was on the air the same two short years (same time frame, too) that HCTB was!)
