    She was an interesting character but what I liked about her most was the theme they wrote for her character. It was such a wonderful piece of music that reflected the enigmatic nature of who she was.

    A grand bit of music alright. There was mystery exuded from the theme. The blogspot put together excerpts of the themes for the various characters and their own variations of the theme tune, which you can hear below:





    Nicole is booking into Del Oro. She instructs an assistant of her requirements. Angela happens to be in the lobby, as her new foe lands, (a scene from season 7, 1987 - '88):

    Nicole: "........I shall need a map of Tuscany, indicating the Gioberti estate."

    Angela: "Did I hear you mention Gioberti?"

    Nicole: "You've got sharp ears for something that is not your business."

    Angela: "I'm sorry I didn't mean to be rude. I'm Angela Channing I own this place."

    Nicole: "There is no need for introductions I won't be staying long."

    Her luggage is then brought to her; on two separate trolleys, which suggests otherwise.

    Angela goes in the direction of the Del Oro office and replies, "I see!"

    1. Ciji Dunne

    Ciji was a character whose presence helped to usher in a whole new era of Knots Landing. And her and Chip were really the first examples of a template that would become a staple in seasons to come, bring in new characters whose story lines and interactions connect all the characters in some way. Not only did she have a great run on the show, but in her final days she went out with not one, but several bangs, the last being the discovery of her body on the beach. This lead to a whodunnit with some really interesting and original twists that is classic Knots.




    2. Mickey Trotter

    Who didn't love Mickey Trotter. The bad boy with a good heart who won over Lucy and the audience as his character evolved. But alas, the fight for Ewing Oil claims another victim in the thrilling run up the end of one of Dallas best seasons. He's another one who had a very dramatic exit which lead onto another very dramatic story line.


    3. Constance Colby

    barbara-stanwyck-in-the-colbys-silver-screen.jpg

    Barbara Stanwyck brings some old Hollywood gravitas to the role of Connie, and it's a shame she didn't hang around longer than one season. The character had a lot of potential and they could have given Barbara some more meaty material to get her teeth into, but she had some great scenes during that first season, most notably her showdowns with Sable.


    4. Holly Harwood

    CvzgJEdXEAYC0pT.jpg

    The stunning Lois Chiles was a great addition to the cast of Dallas and she seemed to fit into that world perfectly. Although she got conned and taken advantage of, she didn't take it lying down and had the balls to beat JR at his own game. The consequences of which had a domino effect that lead to more than one tragedy and some great drama.


    5. Father Christopher

    aba1a94d8f3edbbfb71b0c56f88c7072.jpg

    Father Christopher was actually a great addition to the show in an otherwise lack lustre season. An important character, in that he was Julia's son and therefore a new heir to Falcon Crest. And it was quite a novelty to have a member if the Channing Family who wasn't an evil schemer or insane. He's another one who really should have been more than a one season character because he had so much potential as an heir to Falcon Crest and a rival for Lance. Especially as Cole would leave early the next season.

    A little teaser: the next one is going to be a very unpopular battle, but that doesn't mean that forum members are allowed to opt out.

    I'm intrigued. And will there be some kind of punishment for members that opt out? Or how were you planning to enforce this decree?

    I don't think it would be wise to discuss my methods on the record.
    Let's hope it won't be necessary. Think positive!

    This is especially menacing when it's next to a Paul Sheppard avatar. :embarrassed:

    "No Soapchatters were harmed during the filming of this Soapland Battle."

    (We make no promises about "before" or "after", though)
