I didn't rate/rank the seasons when I was a child. I just wanted more, more, more. That feeling, those minutes before the episode started - it was such a rush!I can't for the life of me figure out what I liked in these wacky space vaudeville acts of Kirk and co.
Jeri Ryan joined the cast of Dark Skies a year later, when that show underwent a desperate retooling to boost flagging ratings. (Had that show still ran, it was planned by it's creators to be 5 seasons in different decades ending with a 2 hour finale on 31st December 1999)
Did anyone see this when it aired as a TV movie? It was an Aaron Spelling pilot called Pier 66 that was set in Fort Lauderdale (the show's original title) and was being touted as "Melrose Place in a marina". It starred Jeri Ryan, Denise Richards and Michael Weatherly. ABC didn't pick it up and Spelling hoped to sell it elsewhere but it only ended up being shown as a one off movie in 1996.
The Midas Valley one may have worked if they had Christopher Walken in it, given the plot of his Bond film. (And Julie Rogers from Charlie's Angels was in it).There's something about the description in the NYT article that reminds me of Emerald Point N.A.S.: it wants to be a Big Soap but they can't come up with a good reason (or excuse).
At least The Colbys could be described as "expanding the Dynasty universe".
Not that there's anything wrong with a soap-for-the-heck-of-it, and I probably would have watched and enjoyed the Midas Valley soap....although...microchips? Catherine Mary Stewart? It doesn't strike me as must-see TV.
Cruel Intentions as a series? I guess that would have been something like REVENGE?
Just looked up Taylor John Smith, and he does look good.Taylor John Smith played Bash, who following the death of the man who he thought was his real father in a blowjob related car crash, discovers that the long deceased Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe in the original film) is actually his biological father, meaning he is set to inherit a fortune.
Coby Bell, Peter Gallagher and Duane Henry rounded out the rest of the male cast while Nathalie "Cristal #1" Kelley played the assistant and lover of Sarah Michelle Gellar's Kathryn.
