    Curious if there are any Dante's Cove fans out there? Reichen made his acting debut this season. Also, features Tracy Scoggins (Dynasty 2) and Thea Gill (Queer as Folk). My personal favorites are Jon Fleming and Charlie David!

    I don't watch TV all that much but I've seen a few cuts of this on youtube. I guess I'm out of the loop because I'd never heard of it. The acting looks real bad but considering the synopsis I suppose there isn't much they could do with all that. The one dude they call "Bro" is hot minus all that witchy stuff he does. I'd marry that dude in a second. If he wanted to float around the house or make things move I'm cool with it. And I wouldn't just allow that for anyone icon_smile.gif

    The acting can be pretty horrific at times, but thats part of what makes it so much fun. It's silly, dumb, campy and enjoyable.

    I really want to like Dante's Cove, but the show melts my brain, causing it to ooze out of my ears (sounds like a Tresum spell...probably that b*tch Grace attacking all of her viewers). Thus, I can only take it in increments, allowing my brain to solidify in-between viewings.

    I am currently somewhere in the middle of season one. While the actors are muy cute and the sex scenes are nifty (though boo! I was expecting some more frontal nudity after that first scene between Ambrosius and his valet), the story is, at best, weak. The acting is also of dubious quality, and I wish that Toby had more of a metaphorical spine (he has an awful male bimbo thing going on). I also wish that they could drop the whole period piece malarkey.

    I intend on getting the first season of Lair though; Colton Ford makes me drool and I want to see him in a non-pornographic role.

    Dante's Cove is so gloriously awful. We watch it as much to laugh at its cheezy, campy tawdriness as we do to see the hot guys. It's sort of like the Batman show in the 60's. It's tackiness is so over the top that it's hilarious...

    I rented Season 1 a few months ago and got a kick out of it. A sort-of gay Dark Shadows. And the acting is about as good. Jarhead and all you other guys above are right about the show.

    But of course, the eye candy does compensate -- at least, somewhat.

    I did rent the first couple of disks from netflix. They never seem to address the central mystery, which is "Why is every person in town always slathered in body oil?" I would think they'd fall down a lot.

    I also love how, on the DVDs, the actors take themselves and the show so seriously; makes the show even funnier.

    Can't wait to get season 3 from Netflix.

    Here's Colton Ford's Dlist page -

    I personally think the acting on The Lair is even worse. I do give kudos to Colton Ford and Dylan Vox (Formerly Falcon porn star - Brad Benton)

    I always think of Dante's Cove as the more obviously gay version of the soap opera Passions.

    I too really wanted to like it, but it gives me a headache.

    Dante's Cove is campy, the acting suffers horribly at times, and the backstory is a bit weak... but I can't seem to dislike it.

    I got the boxed set of the first two seasons with the "lost" pilot as a Christmas gift. I would say skip the "lost" pilot because its absolutely awful and most of the roles were recast before the first season began... however, it wasn't until I viewed that "lost" pilot that I was actually able to appreciate the vast improvements of the actual first season... which is a masterpiece by comparison. Yes, the "lost" pilot was that bad... icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif "Lost" is actually here! network's code, I think, for "It was so incredibly horrible we were too ashamed to air it".

    I haven't seen The Lair yet, which I understand to be a quasi-spinoff of Dante's Cove. Anyone else seen it? How bad is that one?

    The Guys are hot, yeah
    But the writing and the acting is so atrocious that it makes me cringe
    Sex in the city it ain't

    It's gloriously awful, and I love it. The acting and production value are better than what you see in most soft porn.

    Dante's Cove is HORRIBLE! Horrible writing, horrible acting, horrible effects.

    That being said, I love it. Hot guys having softcore sex with each other, plus supernatural elements? SIGN ME UP! It's the perfect thing to watch with the gay boys on a lazy summer day after the beach and before the clubs.

    P.S. Did anyone notice how the hotel COMPLETELY changed location and size after the first season? And they explained it away with "The changes you've made really are amazong," or something. HIlarious!

    Alex,

    That's amazing you noticed this. The first season
    was shot in Canada and the second via Hawaii.

    Wouldn't it be great to observe what's involved when they hold a casting call?

    Dane's Cove is one of the worst shows I have ever seen on cable, I watch just to laugh my ass off. The acting is horiffic! I must admit I also watch for the hot bodies on the show and the full frontal nudity!!! YUM!

    I've had the pleasure of meeting a few of the cast members at a Film Festival release with Here TV. They are all Hot Hot Hot!!!! Some were very serious, but most were playful and fun to be around. I had the pleaseure of actually spending time with a couple of them over the last two years.
