DVD Update 7/15/14 (How the West was Won Season 2, Pretty Little Liars Season Four)
How the West was Won: The Complete Season Two (Available on DVD July 15th, 2014)
How the West Was Won: The Complete Second Season follows the members of the Macahan family as they continue their daily struggles to survive and thrive in the wild American frontier. From being chased by the law to run-ins with the Army and conflicts with foreign visitors, their stories are played out against a realistic recreation of the American West in that lusty, hard-hitting period when laws were frequently broken and progress was charted by individual suffering and survival.
Life in the Colorado wilderness test the Macahans to the limit. The frontier adventure continues as hardened mountainman and patriarch Zeb (James Arness) gets caught in the middle of a war between the Sioux tribe and the U.S. Army, while eldest Macahan son – and still fugitive – Luke (Bruce Boxleitner) finds something more dangerous than the vengeful lawmen chasing him: a lethal gang of ex-Confederate gold robbers. Aunt Molly Culhane (Fionnula Flanagan) joins the family, bringing Irish grit and an open heart to the Macahan children and homestead. Packed with vivid supporting characters played by an impressive array of Hollywood greats (including Ricardo Montalban in an Emmy-winning performance), this 6-disc, 14-part season set delivers entertainment as expansive as the open froniter!
