    I´ve just remembered this lady below. Meredith Braxton (Jane Badler) from "Falcon Crest", the avenger-turned-nanny-turned-assassin. One of the unsung heroes of the show!! Couldn´t we have 10 options for this poll (pleeeeease)!?

    Did she ever rip the latex mask off her face to reveal she was in fact a reptilian alien out to conquer Earth? 'Cause I'll gladly change my vote if that occurred. [/obscure "V" reference]

    Who happens to be a great singer.

    A song that speaks to all the embittered cougar divas.
    :byee:
    We did a top ten for the cliffhangers, and then soapchat's Top Ten Company threatened to sue us for plagiarism.:cool1
    So I'm afraid we can't do that anymore.

    But you can change your list if you want:)

    1) Chao-Li: I do hope he wins this contest. More often than not Chao-Li was like a member of the Channing family, than a servant. There were no bounds as regards his devotion and do anything attitude. He didn’t speak all that much but when it happened there were usually words of wisdom or to toe the line (agree) with the person you had to obey, the fearless wine matriarch Angela – FALCON CREST.
    2) Harry McSween: JR’s henchman and a crooked cop. If anyone had crossed the infamous oil baron then slick Harry could always have been called on to do an underhanded deed, on them – DALLAS.
    3) Joseph Anders: A very efficient no nonsense major-domo in the regal Carrington mansion. His daughter Kirby showed up and they had some nice scenes together. Joseph was always a friend to Blake, especially if he was in the dog house and when Alexis was at her most domineering – DYNASTY.
    4) Teresa: The pleasant maid of Southfork; who made sure JR and Co’s drink trolley was always well stocked, she made brilliant coffee which Sue Ellen was very partial to, after the clear stuff, made JR’s bacon extra crispy and ensured that his pillows were always well feathered. Teresa just didn’t make the chili, only Ellie did this for the family – DALLAS.
    5) Spheeris: Probably the most evil cartel goon who knocked about for nearly two years in the wine country and cities connected to it. You just didn’t stand below any wine vats when he was around, travel in your private jet or leave your gun cabinet unlocked. He was dangerous with a capital D and almost signed his own death warrant, when he got too close to Julia, who was under lock and key by Riebmann – FALCON CREST.


    The family are coming to terms with the earthquake. Peter and the winery workers find Angela and Julia. Angela is comforted by Peter, as Julia seems to be in a bad state. Chao-Li runs from the mansion and is out of breath. The Channing matriarch enquires about Emma, (a scene from season 6, 1986 – ’87):

    Chao-Li: “She’s inside the house Mrs. Channing. I think she needs you!”

    Lance suggests they take Julia to the church, for first aid.

    Peter: “Chao-Li you stay here, keep an eye on the place.”

    Chao-Li runs off in the direction of the winery: “Yes Mr. Stavros.”

    is this real? Or you joking? We can't pick a top ten cliffhangers???! isn't that a breach of human rights for free expression for everyone? Hardly damaging society or hurting anyone/anything with such a list? Sorry if you are actually joking and I didn't pick that up

    Like I said we're doing this for the US prime time soaps, but no-one forbids you to list your favourite RTE characters/moments. Just follow your heart:)

    Still totally confused if you are joking? I not joking. I can't tell if that your sense of humour or if someone actually threatened to sue you if you made a top ten list of your favourite telly moments??? Which I find utterly astounding. Is that even legal to sue for that?

    No one would sue over that. He was overstating it a bit. Okay, a lot. We tend to lean toward hyperbole around here because...well, it's so darn funny! Unfortunately it can be difficult sometimes to figure out where the fact ends and the fiction begins, so I apologize for the confusion. A good rule of thumb on here is that when in doubt, we're just going for the laugh and not being serious.

    Keep in mind that I'm sure at some point we've done such a compilation, since it is a popular idea for posts/threads. It might be buried among other threads, or in a different form (such as a list of favorites from one soap, but not covering all soaps, or maybe a discussion format rather than a list).
    For now, the topics of these "Top Fives" are things not really debated before, "new territory" so to speak. As we run low on fresh topics we might have to come back to more standard topics such as that one, getting debate flowing once again.

    We lost the votes and discussions after the crash (how soap-y!), but we remembered who-won-what.
    The season finale episodes was the fifth round. DYNASTY won.
    http://www.soapchat.net/index.php?threads/scoreboard.2254/
    We did 10 votes because there's so much to choose from and it's easy to remember 10 season finales. That wouldn't work for every topic.

    The 4 most popular cliffhangers were:
    1. DYNASTY (Moldavia wedding)
    2. DALLAS (Who shot JR)
    3. FALCON CREST (Who's in the coffin)
    4. KNOTS LANDING (Valene finds her babies)

    There will be 10 choices in the next battle (for the same reason as the cliffhangers).

    Thank you. For listing these. The Moldavia actual wedding episode was amazing. Swan song and the final of return to Eden were right up there as creme de la creme of television aswell :)

    I'm so disappointed I missed those first 7 or so! I don't know how i missed all those weeks and didn't get a vote in :-( I found them after they finished and too late. Thanks for showing the scoreboard Willie Olsen. I don't know how to find that so it's good to see. Go Dallas!

    I would suggest having a congratulatory party for Chao-Li, but Angela would probably expect him to clean up afterwards, so I'll just send a nice card.
