Forever Knight - The Trilogy, Part 2
Columbia TriStar surprised a lot of Forever Knight fans by releasing the second season of the cult supernatural series on DVD, despite underwhelming sales of the first-season set; what's even more exciting about this six-disc box for longtime followers are its supplemental features, which include commentary by star Geraint Wyn Davies and series co-creator James Parriott. Overall, the second season is marked by change, both in front of and behind the camera: vampire detective Nick Knight's former master and nemesis, LaCroix (Nigel Bennett), takes a more active role in the series, and offers a direct threat to Nick's desire to become mortal again, while Nick's lengthy past is explored more deeply in flashbacks. Gary Farmer's Captain Stonetree is gone, having been replaced by Natsuko Ohama as Captain Cohen-however, she too would leave the show by season's end, as would Gary Kapelos (Nick's partner, Schanke), and Deborah Duchene (Janette Ducharme).
What didn't deviate from the first season was the abundance of exciting and imaginative stories--highlights from season 2 include "Stranger Than Fiction," in which Nick falls for an Ann Rice-like writer; "Father's Day," which partners LaCroix with the Mob; the return of Jack the Ripper in "Bad Blood"; and "Baby Baby," one of two second-season episodes directed (quite well) by Wyn Davies. Extras include Wyn Davies and Parriott providing commentary for two episodes ("Blood Money" and "Killer Instinct"), while Nigel Bennett goes it alone for a pair ("A More Permanent Hell" and "Curiouser and Curiouser"). Parriott and Wyn Davies also appear in a 20-minute featurette (titled, appropriately enough, "About the Show"), and a brief segment in which they answer questions posited by series devotees. In short, season 2 has plenty for FK aficionados to (ahem) sink their teeth into. --Paul GaitaSee all Product Description

Anyone who enjoyed the series "Angel" should find this show very worthwhile. Although I'm a big fan of Angel, I find the character of Nick Knight to be much more multi-faceted and interesting, possibly because there isn't a clear separation of his "good" and "evil" sides, the way there is with Angel. Forever Knight was somewhat low-budget, but the writing is generally great (with a few minor lapses) and the regular cast is terrific. What particularly makes this show a treasure, though, is Geraint Wyn Davies' superb acting talent and ability. You can really see that Shakespeare training coming through, especially in the flashbacks. Plus, why is it that Welsh (well, he was born in Wales, anyway) actors have such wonderful voices? It's a great shame that the show was cancelled at the end of its 3rd season. Please, oh, please, let's have season 3 on DVD a little sooner this time - 6 months instead of a whole year!
I have Part 1 as well and I plan to watch Seasons 1 & 2 all over again.
Great purchase all around.
Also, Amazon was fantastic in delivering it as well. Received it in a couple of days. Good work.
