| great news for SAVANNAH fans
At last, a totally helpful review from RavenGlamDVDCollector@gmail.com! Fans who want it on DVD can purchase it from DVD-Rare. This is a trustworthy company that does deliver and it is just such a crying shame they have such limited titles. Okay, so this product is not an official release, the end result is not 100% when compared to your typical store-bought DVD like MELROSE PLACE, but for Jamie Luner fans, there is no other way. TV's most exciting actress of the Nineties!

Just Google SAVANNAH and look out for the DVD- Rare entry. Rest assured that your selection will be sent to you, these aren't fly-by-nighters, no scam, just a good friend for Hard- go-Find titles. My order was placed from South Africa during November 2013, and I received it in record time. Thanks DVD-Rare, a great buy, worth every penny! I'd been searching for years, since 2007!

I must say, I think this is perhaps the most helpful review posted on IMDb today, as there are loads of fans of this truly marvelous series out there dearly longing to have it in their DVD collections, and lots of scam artists out there as well claiming to have it, but dead-end leads they turn out to be.

A sincere thanks to everybody who were involved with this superb TV show. I never saw the second season, I'm currently rationing the first season to make it last a long time. But it's gonna get an actual review from me some day soon. Meanwhile, I thought I'd help a few fans out of their can't- find misery (I know the feeling only too well!)

Addendum, 3 May. I have decided to add an actual review more in the style of the other contributors as I go along watching this series. Tonight I'm watching episode 5.

Peyton's mother Lucille is the head of the Burton family household, but her own daughter views her as a glorified maid. They live under the same roof, and Peyton is apparently friends with Reese Burton, the pampered rich heiress to her father's fortune. If Reese can be considered as spoiled, it is not so in a negative way. Peyton is jealous of her. But Peyton doesn't count her own blessings. Instead, she longs for the designer clothes and the cherry-red convertible, but meanwhile, makes up for this by sneaking an affair with Reese's boyfriend Travis, who calls her Bunny. And videotapes their encounters. As he does with all the young women in his life. But Reese's taped evidence is kinda a bummer. She's saving herself for marriage. So Travis goes all the way with hot Bunny. But the date is set for marriage with Reese, despite the prenuptial agreement clearly insisted upon by Reese's father Edward. The relationship Reese has with her father is strained. Actually, Edward is merely strict and doles his advice out a bit heavy-handedly without showing any real affection, but he is also prone to greed and envy. And loves gambling, although poker isn't his strongest suit. He loses the S.S. Savannah to Tom Massick's loaded hand. It is an empty victory for Tom, who had an old score to settle with him, for Edward hands over the deed with a smile. And Edward's eying Tom's pretty assistant, who's really his fellow conspirator, as they are con artists de luxe.

Bunny Peyton, with the silky-soft auburn hair, does Travis right before the wedding ceremony, receives a gift from him, a beautiful piece of jewelery. She is promised that once the merger has settled in, Travis will divorce Reese. But then she learns about the prenuptial agreement and the plans Travis has not to use birth control and start a family immediately. Drop dead, Travis! Turns out the piece of jewelery is a $100 fake. Poor Peyton is down in the dumps. Reese indeed has everything. Even the love of Peyton's mother, which is the final straw. So Peyton takes something for herself, switching the cheap ornament for the real thing from Reese's multitude of wedding gifts. But she forgot about the inscription. 'To Bunny, Wedding Bells Will Not Keep Us Apart' which of course knocks Reese for a loop when she opens the gift. Travis's name becomes less than mud. Attempts by him to salvage the situation by bribing a friend to pretend it was all a practical joke does put him temporarily back in the saddle, but Peyton hires Monica, a local stripper, to pretend to be Bunny, and orchestrates Reese finding her in the naked flesh in the newlyweds' apartment. Travis confronts Peyton, a fight ensues, Peyton conks him with a wine bottle, he's down, dead? Peyton stuffs him into the trunk of her car, but develops a flat, is assisted by Dean, and the body mysteriously disappears as if it had all been a bad dream. Only to resurface as if Travis drowned in the river. Peyton goes to considerable lengths to hide any involvement with Travis, breaking into his apartment to try find the videotape which got mixed up with a return to a video store. Lucille tries to warn Peyton that she is on the wrong path and that it will cost her dearly.
