Discussion in 'Falcon Crest' started by Zach, Dec 4, 2016.
Today 35 years ago, Falcon Crest debuted on CBS. Happy birthday!
And yet it's nearly just one year old to me.....
I was surprised to see IMDb mentioning it on their site and they even had a collection of photos from the 80s primetime soaps to honour Falcon Crest's birthday. I don't think they did that with Dallas or any other soap.
35 years already and still a great show. I re-watched it all about 3 years ago and it didn't seem dated at all.
Happy Birthday Falcon Crest!
Richard is feeling unloved and unwanted after being left out of the celebrations.
HB Falcon Crest and here’s to many years to come!
Angela tells Lance that Chase and his family should be invited for dinner. They are going to live in the Gioberti castle mansion and the matriarch wants to treat them as friends. The Giobertis pull up to the mansion, in their station wagon. Angela, Julia, Lance and Chao-Li are on the veranda to meet and greet, (a scene from season 1, 1981-’82):
Angela: “Chase it’s so good to have you back!”
Chase: “Angela, it’s good to be here.”
Angela: “Welcome to Falcon Crest!”
Chase: “Thank you!” He then looks over at the falcon Apollo on his perch and says, “I haven’t seen one of these in a long time.”
Angela: “Isn’t he a beauty?”
Angela: “Maggie! I hope it wasn’t too long a drive.”
Maggie: “Nice to see you! Oh, not too bad, not too bad.”
Angela: “And you’re Cole. Well he’s not a little boy. He’s a grown man.”
Cole: “It’s really quite beautiful here, nothing like New York.”
Angela: “I certainly hope not. Victoria. Welcome darling!”
Victoria: “Thank you!”
Angela: “This is my daughter Julia.”
Julia smiles at them and waits for her next order from mother dearest.
Angela: “Chase you have a beautiful family.”
Chase: “Oh thank you! I think so.”
Angela: “Julia why don’t you take them in and pour some of your favourite wine? I’ll be in, in a moment.”
Chase: “Sounds good.”
He leaves Angela standing on the veranda, looking at Apollo.
Angela leaves the bird outside. Dramatic music commences.
Camera freezes on the falcon.
Fade to black, the closing credits appear and the theme tune starts.
Ah great! Wishing a happy 35th anniversary to the show, which brought us wine, drama and intrigue, from the Tuscany Valley.
