Since we've already done the season finale cliffhangers, I thought it would be interesting to find the best non-season-finale cliffhangers. These threads will run concurrently with the other specific themed Soap Battles. But we'll reserve more time for these episode threads because it takes more time and effort to search for your favourite episode cliffhangers - approx 1200 episodes, and that's also the reason why we're doing this SoapLand Battle in parts. I was thinking about 4 weeks per round, and more time if needed (don't hesitate to ask!). The idea is to compile a top 5 best cliffhangers of all the soaps, and after that I'll post all these top 5's in one thread. Then we'll pick our favourite 5 from that list of 25 cliffhangers, which will result in the #1 favourite episode cliffhanger. 1. DALLAS 2. FALCON CREST 3. KNOTS LANDING 4. DYNASTY 5. THE SHORT-LIVED SOAPS including FLAMINGO ROAD THE COLBYS EMERALD POINT N.A.S. PAPER DOLLS BARE ESSENCE THE YELLOW ROSE BERRENGER'S THE HAMPTONS RETURN TO EDEN I've decided to start with the short-lived soaps, there aren't many members who've seen them all so there's less to choose from. Consider it a warm-up One more thing. There are many episodes that had beautiful endings, but for the sake of consistency, please try to approach these as traditional cliffhangers. You know, all those "Oh my God!" moments. To make the tally up a bit easier, please list your choices as: Series + Season/Episode + Episode Title Example: Flamingo Road S02-E04 - The Intruder And then (if you wish) you can describe the cliffhanger and what you liked about it. Finally, are we going to do a top 5 or top 10? Do we need to poll this?
