"Dante's Cove", Season II

Intriguing and Erotic

Amos Lassen and Cinema Pride

The second season of "Dante's Cove" is here and it was worth waiting for. The series won me over from the start and Here TV! has done itself proud by releasing it on DVD so that non subscribers to the cable station can enjoy it. It is a great supernatural drama that is unique in every way and it hooks you in and doesn't let go.
It is hard to take your eyes off of the TV set when you watch it---it has everything, intrigue and horror, mystique and romance, and hot people making love. The acting may not be the best but everything else is. The characters rise above the dialog in beautifully filmed love scenes in which the chemistry boils. I have yet to see anything quite this erotic on television -"Dante's Cove" puts "Queer as Folk" in its back pocket.
The series is very funny and very hot--part gay soap opera, part science-fiction, and part fun and altogether is a wonderful whole. It is one of my guilty pleasures. Beautiful photography, good-looking men in various states of undress and a great hotel make for a great series. The haunted Hotel Dante serves as a backdrop for open sexuality--even more so in the second season than the first.
An easy going storyline with gorgeous people and dreamy scenery do not always guarantee a good production but in the case of "Dante's Cove" everything works. Let me stress that the sex in no way detracts from the story. The series is not about being gay but rather that gay people have ordinary lives as they move through life and survive the same as straight people. All of the elements of a good thriller are there with the added dimension of gay life.
I have read some of the negative comments and I am reacting to them by saying to those who don't like "Dante's Cove" to get over themselves and learn to sit back and relax. It is good to have fun once in a while.
