Factory's first set of episodes from Season One, I've adapted part of that content for this review, followed by my detailed look at what's different for this next set of episodes. It's impossible to discuss Peyton Place with any kind of depth without revealing major plot spoilers, so please be advised of that in the following review. A hard, driving winter has come to Peyton Place. And as the temperatures drop, and the snow covers the picturesque New England town, passions ignite as its citizens retreat to their warm, comfortable homes, seemingly secure in their cloaks of secrecy afforded by their shuttered windows and drawn curtains. Factory has released Peyton Place: Part Two , a five-disc, episode collection that picks up right where Part One left off. Peyton Place , prime-time television's first multi-night dramatic serial based loosely on the scandalous novel by Grace Metalious and its subsequent film adaptations, was unique - and I believe still holds the record - for being the only prime-time television drama to run continuously throughout its calendar years, without any reruns and without a summer break exactly like its counterparts on the daytime "soap opera" schedules.
