Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
California's San Joaquin Valley is again the primary setting for the action in this much-beloved western TV series, but Season 2 offers numerous episodes that take place outside the fabled Barkley Ranch and its immediate surroundings. For example, a tense two-parter, "Legend of a General," unfolds largely south of the border, where Heath (Lee Majors) is held hostage in exchange for a recently escaped Mexican general (played by prolific TV character actor Nehemiah Persoff) who's an old friend of the Barkley family. "The Iron Box" finds Heath and stepbrother Nick (Peter Breck) sentenced to work on a road gang after being framed for stealing a bull. And "Pursuit," a showcase for series star and legendary actress Barbara Stanwyck, is a tour de force involving Victoria's trek through the desert in search of a desperately ill Indian whom she hopes to stop from infecting his entire village. This box set contains the first half of the 30-episode 1966-67 season, which sees Majors -- the show's breakout star -- assuming more prominence, mostly at the expense of seasoned costar Richard Long, whose Jarrod Barkley gets less screen time. Fortunately, Big Valley's other "discovery," the adorable Linda Evans, has many opportunities to sashay around in sexy frontier garb. Although the series maintained a consistently high level of quality throughout, the Season 2 episodes are generally considered to be the best, making this box an essential for Big Valley buffs.

Big Valley - Season 2 , Vol. 1 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

Continues to be the best of the TV westerns! I am a general fan of westerns, but the Big Valley cast of great legendary actors is what made this series special. The writing was so terrific it really makes one nostalgic for the "good old days" of quality television. Nothing on TV today can compare. I am also one that is anxiously waiting for the rest of the season to come out. I sincerely hope they are doing something special to justify the long wait. Interviews with the last remaining characters possibly?

The Big Valley is without question the best TV Western- filmed mostly outside in real settings as opposed to the sets used in Bonanza, the acting is first rate and the stories have the proper mix of melodrama, western stereotypes and cliches. Each character has there own focus and each brings a different energy to the storylines. But to Fox Video- Please complete the series!!!!

I HAVE WATCH THIS SHOW SINCE I WAS A CHILD I WAS BORN IN 1960. I HAVE BOTH SEASON 1 AND SEASON 2. MY CHILDREN DON'T LIKE MANY WESTERN MOVIES BUT WHEN MY DAUGHTER AND NIECE SAW THE FIRST SEASON THEY LOVED IT. BUT NOW WERE IS SEASON 3 LIKE OTHERS WE ARE WAITING PLEASE E-MAIL ME WHEN IT DOES ARRIVE I LOVE THIS SHOW VERY MUCH.

I have loved watching The Big Valley again. Although the screen time has increased for Lee Majors (Heath) and Linda Evans (Audra), we still see plenty of Richard Long (Jarrod) and Peter Breck (Nick). Of course, Miss Barbara Stanwyck completes the cast as Victoria Barkley and make this second season worth viewing. I think my favorite episode was The Iron Box, in which Nick and Heath are falsely accused and made to work on a road gang. Even though Nick didn't accept Heath as his half-brother at first, he does now as he and Lobo (another inmate) break free of their cell compound to get Heath out of the sweat box. I recommend this collection for anyone's personal library. I'm eagerly waiting for Season 3 to come out on DVD.
