    In the early years of the series we saw Angela, Lance, Melissa and Chao-Li in the presence of the Peregrine falcon Apollo. He was their pet after all. Lance had the glove on with Apollo on it, as if they were alluding to Falconry but this wasn't on screen. Would Falconry have been an interesting option, for TPTB?


    Angela and Chao-Li are discussing their pet, the Peregrine falcon Apollo, (a scene from season 2, 1982 - '83):

    Angela: "Apollo looks so harmless, in captivity."

    Chao-Li: "Not to me!"

    Angela: "Ha! You're right. If we set him free he'll resort to his killer instincts."

    Chao-Li: "I'd rather cook him first!"

    Angela: "Oh now......Chao-Li!"

    No I don't like it. I can appreciate why the show was named Falcon Crest, Falconry definitely not.

    At the very least, they should have kept Apollo on the show and never traded him off for Apollonia.

    I mean, talk about yer effin' metaphors!

    Apollonia receives quite a bit of flack, on the forum. I'm in the minority because I enjoyed her stint in the show. Despite Lance not intending deep down to leave FC for her, IMHO her presence had to attract a more youthful viewership. Ms. Kotero's character certainly wasn't any worse in character composition than Robin Agretti or Carly Fixx. The two of them were in more episodes and didn't add anything really beneficial, to the memory of the wine saga.





    Apollonia is waiting in Lance's KRDC office. He is about to spring a surprise on her, (a scene from season 5, 1985 - '86):

    Lance: "Hi baby!"

    Apollonia: "Hi!"

    Lance: "Ooh!"

    Apollonia: "You're one busy guy. I've been waiting a half hour for you."

    Lance: "Well you're gonna love to know what I've been doing with my time. I think I just hired the best top 40 programme director, in the country."

    Apollonia: "He's coming here?"

    Lance: "He's coming right here baby and he is bringing five of his top DJs with him."

    Apollonia: "Oh that's great Lance!"

    Lance: "We're gonna have the best top 40 rock station in the west."
