Passion Cove: The Best Revenge

And here we are, with the 26 and final episode of Passion Cove, which debuted in early 2000 with its first episode The Vibe. After its initial 13-episode season ended, the series returned in 2001 with its second season, which also ran for 13 episodes. Written by David Keith Miller and directed by series creator John Quinn,  this episode stars Sarah Cooper as Joelle.

Joelle was recently dumped by her last boyfriend Travis for another woman. Now she wants to get “revenge” by inviting Travis and his new girlfriend to spend a weekend at the Passion Cove house with her and her new boyfriend, hoping that will make Travis jealous and regret dumping her. The problem is that Joelle doesn’t have a new boyfriend, so she hires her friend Brian (Michael Jay, again credited as Jason Stark), who happens to be an actor, to come to the house and pretend to be her boyfriend.

Anthony DeVilla (who previously appeared in Practice What You Preach) plays Travis while Regina Russell Banali plays his new girlfriend, Mary Ann. Initially, Joelle’s plan doesn’t work so well, as Travis and Mary Ann seem blissfully happy, Joelle even sneaks and watches them have wild and very loud sex in their room. Eventually, Travis gets Joelle alone and tries to come on to her, which makes Joelle realize how untrustworthy he is so she no longer wants him anyway. And, predictably, she turns to Brian for comfort and the two of them end up getting together for real.

I wish I could say that this series went out on a high note, but this episode was just average. The story was pretty predictable, from the minute we first see Joelle and Brian together you know they’ll end up a real couple. We get three full sex scene, Sarah Cooper has one both with DeVilla (a flashback scene) and with Jay, and there’s a scene between DeVilla and Banali, but it’s only the latter that’s really hot. I’d give this episode of Chacebook rating of THREE STARS. It’s fine enough for what is it, by not one of my favorites.

Still, overall, Passion Cove was one of the hotter softcore TV series of its time period. I wish they still made shows like this.

  1. The women decently acted and simulated.

    The jealously was believable albeit barely.

    Regina’s love scene was the only good scene.
    The fast zoom-ins and angles were surprising.
    Regina has a good looking body so i understand.
    She was in control in the second half that i liked

  2. Regina Russell always looked outstanding! Sexy redhead, beautiful face, voluptuous breasts, shapely hips/buns…especially when wearing short skirts and thongs that emphasized her alluring feminine curves. And all natural, too!

      • She certainly was! One of Regina Russell’s more scorching scenes (among many) was in 1999’s “The Big Hustle,” where she donned a sexy nurse’s uniform (complete with white stockings and sexy, lacy thong panties) and slid a stethoscope down the shorts of a very lucky Jarod Carey. She then proceeded to perform some oral “resuscitation” by sliding down Jarod’s boxers. I also recall some very hot scenes in “Passion’s Obsession” and “Visions of Passion,” where Regina was attired in extremely short skirts hiked up high enough to reveal the outline of her shapely buns (with a spectacular view of her thong panties). How lucky softcore actor Steve Curtis was to not only star alongside her in several softcore productions but to also be married to her!
