Falcon Crest and Knots Landing DVDs - Where are they?
It is unbelievable that Falcon Crest is not out on DVD and that Knots is stuck with only season one out there. Every other stupid show ever produced is on DVD, but these super high quality soaps can't get any traction. Frankly, although I'm a Dallas addict, Crest and Knots were actually much better! Go figure - seems like these DVDs could be knocked out for pennies per set and huge profit mark up could be made from all of us who willingly scoop up every season all at once if we could. Sometimes logic prevails, sometimes it doesn't!

Falcon Crest TV Series
Not only is Falcon Crest not available to buy on DVD but you cant even download it from AOL IN2TV - that service is simply not avaible outside the USA. Yet Warner Bros have given the excuse that because they released all the episodes on AOL there are no plans to release it on DVD. If anyone has the address (I dont) write in and point out to them what could is that for FC fans who dont live in USA. Then lets see what their excuse it. I would gladly pay for download episodes.

Falcon Crest Complete Series
I would like ot know WHY we haven't been able to get the whole of Falcon Crest series in the UK I for one was an avid fan and we had it stopped all of a sudden, so we didn't get to see the whole series. It was taken off the TV and replaced with some other programme which wasn't anywhere near as good. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RELEASE THE WHOLE SERIES IN THE UK I just know it would be a winer ( pardon the pun )

Falcon Crest Episode "Win, Place, Show"
I am just looking for this episode because it has one of my favorite actors in it. Scott Reiniger from "Dawn of the Dead". I agree with you all. I cannot believe how hard it is for anyone to put this out on DVD. They have all that other crap on TV DVD like Family Guy and Simpsons, crap like that but yet we can't get FC out there? Makes no damn sense at all.
#16 - Mitzi - 03/03/2009 - 19:12
i have seen an advert in the last week that falcon crest is coming back to our screans can you please tell me when it said at 11am or pm but did not catch the date please help.

My favourite conspiracy theory concerning the non-appearance of Falcon Crest on dvd concerns the intervention of the Vatican.
Many viewers of the series may not have realised that the story is set amongst a community of, largely, Roman Catholic Californians. And, as with most things Catholic, when Catholics do "Evil" they do it as only Catholics can do "Evil" i.e. with no holds barred! None of your old plastic protestanty evil as in Dallas and Dynasty. In "Falcon Crest" Catholics are seen at their evil worst. But, does the Vatican want that message to be duplicated millions of times on dvd? Hardly. So, it's highly likely that some ecclesiastical arm-twisting has gone on behind the scenes. Which explains the non-appearance of Falcon Crest on dvd.
Is there anything we humble viewers can do in the face of such Vatican obduracy? Might I suggest recourse to the one and only action which, history tells us, has the Vatican hopping like a herring on a griddle-o---i.e. Catholics refusing to make weekly contributions to their Church funds. So, if you're a Catholic and a FC fan let your Parish Priest know that he can go whistle for his funds until the Vatican relents and allows Jane Wyman and co. to strut their stuff ion the nation's dvd machines.

Falcon crest series 6-9
I too have enjoyed watching series 1-5 of falcon crest on zone romantica. I e mailed zone romantica this week to ask why they are not showing series 6-9 and the reply I got was that they intend to show series 6-9 in June 2010!! This is due to financial reasons. I would like to buy these series on dvd but cannot find them anywhere.

#38 - nodrog - 01/23/2010 - 22:51
To all you Falcon Crest fans who buy the dvd whole series - Please DO NOT buy from company called EVODvdStar Collections - I bought the whole series meant to be 227 with 78 dvds. was not whole series ended at s6 and 2 discs wouldnt play - faulty all the discs were of very poor qualith and copied off the tv with flashes of future programmes. i e mailed them back and I have not had a reply and now have to get in touch with my credit card company to see if I can claim back - I pad over £75 and ordered for xmas 2009. Very disappointed, PLEASE BE WARNED i would love to have the complete series which warner bros are releasing 1st season in April 2010 - lets hope they release the rest, please do not order through any third party as u are at great risk at being conned like me! WARN YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THE WORD TO ALL US AVID F.C. FANS.

Falcon Crest DVD's
My all time favourite TV soap then they axe it after series 6. Heard there were another 3 series after that. Showing on Sky TV at the moment. I've tried to contact various websites advertising all 9 series but then it says only 6 series. 227 dvd's at £80 - £90(obviously copied off TV as they have nver been made on DVD) but have never had a proper answer from them, which makes me think it's a con

Can't any of you who has season 3 and onwards upload them? Season 1+2 has been available for years now, but not the rest. Apparently it has been shown on TV many times, so instead of w(h)ining here for more seasons, upload what's already been shown!

Falcon Crest is the best.
I have seen very good T.V series such as 24, Elias, Dynasty,Dawson's Creek,Highlander, etc.
But Falcon Crest is my all time favorite and definitely will remain like that all my life. My all time favorite T.V character is Richard Channing played by David Selby.
