    Angela's Final Soliloquy

    Falcon Crest was more successful than Dynasty here (which was cancelled in the third season until it was picked up in reruns) - ironically my first memories of Falcon Crest and Dallas were the blondes dying (Maggie in FC and April in Dallas).

    Things wrong with Season 9

    To be fair, Falcon Crest introduced the Ortegas and Dallas was in Haleyville, so it wasn't like Dynasty was the only soap to attempt to introduce "earthy" elements (I guess Knots was already down to earth, so they didn't do anything out of the ordinary). It's just a sign of the times I guess...

    When everything happens at once

    Except, you know, Gustav III is one of the most controversial monarchs in history with the whole coup d'état thing and ended up assassinated.

    What OG storylines are left now?

    I just don't see the need for Amanda tbh. Maybe if they actually run for like ten seasons or something (which they won't). Then again, considering the rumours that they're introducing Peter Devilbus in season 4...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Yes, they made pretty much every rookie mistake in introducing Pilar to the show - they just made her too instantly connected to everyone on the canvas and then pushed her to the forefront, while at the same time just swiftly writing off one of the most popular characters on the show. Obviously...

    Things wrong with Season 9

    To be honest, I'm not really sure that you can blame the "lack of glamour" solely on Paulsen or even the budget being slashed - it was pretty obvious that the entire tv landscape were moving away from that sort of OTT glamourama that had been popular just a three years ago; all other soaps...

    Would you "date" Kanye West?

    This really shouldn't be an anonymous vote as I believe 100% in public shaming.

    Terrific episode titles

    Melrose Place had a lot of good ones, but one that sticks out to me is Boxing Sydney - which of course is a reference to Sydney joining a cult and being thrown in a "box" in the ground after trying to escape, hence they "boxed" Sydney.

    Forgotten soaps of the 90's

    I'll be honest and say that I feel no rush in ripping it because... well, it's not very good so I'd like to get a further hang on transferring VHS to digital so that I only have to do it once. I ranted about this as I watched it, but it's a shame The Hamptons was shot on video tape because they...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    I'm pretty sure they had her burn to crisp because they wanted to keep the door open for her to potentially come back; Dynasty just didn't run long enough for it to happen. It's the same thing with Chase's body being swept away in the San Francisco river - if they had the budget for it and...

    Emerald Point N.A.S. (1983-84)

    In all honesty, I've tried to start this about two times but I end up getting bored with it. They seemingly brought in Rita Lakin in the seven last episodes of the series - while she wrote for Peyton Place in its second season and was a showrunner on Flamingo Road, she also did the...

    Forgotten soaps of the 90's

    LOL, well, I don't think department stores are seen as glamourous today, but I guess back then they were with things like Nordstrom. Sweden also had a soap set at a department store, "Varuhuset", in the 80s that was successful (well, five season and 60 or so episodes, which was a lot by our...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Actually, unlike Susan Sullivan and Laura Johnson, Ana Alicia wasn't cut due to budget since they had to pay her for the full 22 either way. You have to hand it to Ana Alicia for being one smart cookie for managing to negotiate those things into her contract.

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Because they wanted her to properly die. Soap rules state that if there's no body, or a body is unrecognizable by being burnt to crisp, a character could always come back. They went the Bobby Ewing route and that backfired on them when they had to bring Ana Alicia back due to rapidly declining...

    Mack - a good character?

    I pretty much feel the same way. I thought he was a "good" husband to Karen though as I really can't imagine her as a spinster widow or being out in the dating pool too long. I think he filled a part of the show that was needed, but I can't say that I feel very strongly about him one way or...

    What OG storylines are left now?

    I just don't think Amanda is necessary. Plus, she'd be around 13 now if we go by her being Alexis's child with Blake after being forced in exile since she was "only" gone for 11 years...

    Who were the hottest couple in Dynasty Town?

    Miles also dated an underage Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills 90210 and Sable was her cheating boyfriend's mom. (what this has to do with this topic I have no idea)
