    1. Titus Semple - FLAMINGO ROAD - One of the stand out characters of the series, the sheriff of Truro who was a bigger criminal than anyone else in the town.

    2. Harry McSween - DALLAS - J.R.'s Mr Fix It on the police force that was better at planting evidence than solving crime.
    [​IMG]

    3. Sheriff Dan Robbins - FALCON CREST - he was a bit too friendly with Chase but was totally honest. Solved the who killed Carlo mystery but instead of showing his main witness photos of the suspects, took him to a wedding reception where the murderer, Julia, could panic and murder again.
    [​IMG]

    4. Fielding Carlyle - FLAMINGO ROAD - the deputy sheriff who spent more time chasing Lane Ballou than he did chasing criminals.
    [​IMG]

    5. Lt. Janet Baines - KNOTS LANDING - worked on the Ciji Dunne murder and was tough but also had a sympathetic side.

    1.Tom Ryan (Knots Landing)
    He was a complex character. On one hand a dirty cop, on the other hand he loved Paige and when it came down to a choice between following orders or saving Paige's dad Mack he saved Mack's life. So he could be a nice guy. But he also did steal that briefcase with money from Anne and Nick. Still he was a really good romantic fit for Paige who was also not the nicest girl on the block. So the two of them deserved each other and I think he was her the one who got away. They should have been married.

    2. Harry McSween (Dallas)
    JR's loyal friend in the police force who placed dirt on people if they came up clean.

    3. Janet Baines (Knots Landing)
    She made an impression during the Ciji Dunne murder investigation where Gary was her prime suspect for a while. She came across as fair but tough as nail.

    4. John Zorelli (Dynasty)
    He made quite an impression during the murder investigation of Roger Grimes. He brought out a younger side of Fallon that was more similar to how she was early on the show. Still I preferred Fallon with Jeff.

    5. Sheriff Dan Robbins (Falcon Crest)
    I barely remember the character but he was a good guy.

    Great minds do seem to think alike, KS! My list almost exactly mirrors yours.

    1. Tom Ryan, KL
    Anne: "Well, if you hadn't been so quick to throw him out, he might have helped us."
    Nick: "He's a policeman!?!"
    Anne: "Yeah, but it's all right---he's dirty."
    (he cleaned up real nice, though...)
    [​IMG]
    2. Janet Baines, KL--yeah, it's the headband. Ciji/Cathy could take some tips.
    3. John Zorelli, Dynasty--the actor had amazing charisma. He eventually ended up on Night Court (of all places) playing essentially the same role, only with a laugh track justifying his smart remarks about the nutty folks surrounding him.
    4. Sheriff Dan Robbins, Falcon Crest--I had forgotten his character's real name because I'd always known the actor (Joe Lambie) from his role as District Attorney Logan Swift on The Edge of Night. I had called him "Sheriff Logan" all these years. Great sardonic wit (in both roles).
    5. Detective Levine, KL--he (along with Pam Grier's Det. Guthrie) investigated the death of Danny Waleska. A forgettable role, but played by the unforgettable Herb Edelman. I mean, Stan Zbornak and Foxy Brown are on the case--what more can you ask for?

    That's cool! :pals:
    Also I'd love to have your opinion on some of the stuff we're discussing in the Val & Gary thread if you have a minute at some point?
    We've got some interesting discussion going on lately. :)

    1) Detective Harry McSween - DALLAS.
    2) Sheriff Dan Robbins - FALCON CREST.
    3) Sheriff Fenton Washburn - DALLAS.
    4) Sergeant Johnny Zorelli - DYNASTY.
    5) Sheriff Floyd Gilmore - FALCON CREST.


    Angela pulls up at the Tuscany County jail, to have a word with Sheriff Dan Robbins. She doesn't like the way Julia is being treated, (a scene from season 3, 1983 - '84):

    Sheriff Robbins: "Julia is going through a period of adjustment."

    Angela: "What is she supposed to adjust to? The riffraff, in your jail?"

    Sheriff Robbins: "No to the system. Maybe you're right. Maybe she doesn't belong in here but what if she is convicted? Do you really think life in the county jail is easier than the state prison?"

    Angela: "It can't be any worse than what I have seen."

    Sheriff Robbins: "This is a church pick nick, compared to the state penitentiary."

    Angela: "What you are saying is that you are unwilling to take any action. Well I will have to remember that when election comes around."

    Sheriff Robbins: "Mrs. Channing I don't like idle threats."

    Angela: "And I don't make them!"

    1. Titus Semple (Flamingo Road) as the soapiest sheriff. He had groomed his protégé to become his political yes-man, and he abused his authority to make sure that nothing would go wrong. Needless to say, everything went wrong.

    2. If Titus was the "Boss Hogg" of SoapLand, then sheriff Lew Wallace (The Yellow Rose) was the "Rosco P. Coltrane". Always happy to believe - or pretend to believe - that the Champions (nemesis of town villain Jeb Hollister) were guilty of some crime.

    3. Captain Handler (Dynasty) - such a twist-y and sinister character.

    4. Tom Ryan (Knots Landing) - passionate and unpredictable.

    5. Sgt. John Zorelli (Dynasty) - season 9 had quite a few outsiders unintentionally getting involved with the mighty Carrington clan, and this was probably the most successful storyline.

    1. Harry McSween - Cause dirty cops have more fun.
    2. Dan Robbins - Cause he got to have his own story line that one time when he was ill.
    3. Zorelli - Cause who doesn't like Italian meatballs?
    4. Tom Ryan - Cause mullets and questionable morals are a winning combination.
    5. Fielding Carlyle - Cause I've never seen Flamingo Road but it's Mark Harmon in a uniform.

    1 - Titus Semple of Flamingo Road: while most soap cops dropped in and out of the shows as the storylines dictated, Titus was a lead character that drove much of the drama.

    2 - Detective Zorelli of Dynasty: Ray Abruzzo is a good actor and Zorelli was a very "un-Dynasty" type character which was good to see thrown into the mix.

    3 - Janet Baines of Knots Landing: a great addition to that period when Knots was really hitting it's soapy stride. She also gets points for having a small part in one of my favourite Knots scenes, where Lilimae has to be physically restrained as she bawls Abby out of it in the reception of the police station.

    4 - Detective Guthrie of Knots Landing: I don't even remember this role as my Knots viewing gets a bit patchy in the later seasons but I love Pam Grier so she's getting a vote.

    5 - Fielding Carlyle of Flamingo Road: this is a purely shallow vote. I disliked Fielding immensely (poor Constance being painted as the scarlet woman) but Mark Harmon looked great in uniform.

    Actually...we have two!

    1. Detective Harry McSween (Dallas) & Sheriff Titus Semple (Flamingo Road) - 30 points

    2. Sheriff Dan Robbins (Falcon Crest) - 22 points

    3. Detective Janet Baines (Knots Landing) & Sergeant John Zorelli (Dynasty) - 19 points

    4. Detective Tom Ryan (Knots Landing) - 17 points

    5. Sheriff Fenton Washburn (Dallas) - 8 points


    Congratulations, Dallas[​IMG] & Flamingo Road [​IMG]with your 0.5 points.


    More good cops than bad cops, that's quite a relief.
    Furthermore, the detective in me notices that the final list looks almost identical to Angela Channing's list. Hmm…[​IMG]
