Dante's Cove- Season 2
The hot guys and gals from Dante's Cove are back again for a second season with the release of Dante's Cove- The Complete Second Season.
Five episodes are contained in this two disc set and the focus this season is between good and evil, plus the fight between Toby (Charlie David) and Ambrosius (William Gregory Lee) for the affection of Kevin (Gregory Michael).
In the first season (which really should have been a two hour movie) there were a lot of questions which needed to be answered and this season picks up where the original season ends. For those who expect continuity be warned that the Hotel Dante is set in a different location so don't expect the creepiness of the first season but a luxurious house looking over the ocean. Also, the producers must have received more money for season two since theres some "clever" special effects.
The original characters return for this second go round, but one will end up dead and with Van's (Nadine Heimann) tampering into Tresum her character is expanded to the evil side when she becomes Grace's (Tracy Scoggins) pupil. Also added into the mix is the character of Diana Childs (Thea Gill) who has a secret regarding Ambrosius and Grace.
You have to give the creative team behind both the first and second season for coming up with an original idea, however, they still haven't reached that point yet. This season isn't laden with a multitude of flashbacks as in the first season, but in this season as more characters are introduced the chances of getting lost in the plot increases. There are just too many characters to keep track of and while each episode has it's moments they seem to be too long when it comes to getting to the final episode (which of course sets the stage for a third season).
If you can overlook these flaws then you should enjoy both seasons combined and with any sexy soap opera be prepared for some nudity and a lot of shirtless 20 somethings strutting around the Dante which should add to this guilty pleasure.
