    Angela was such a formidable character and I can't even begin to imagine what FC would have been like had she left before the show was finished.

    But Sue Ellen played such a big role in my enjoyment of Dallas growing up in the 80s, so my vote goes to


    Sue Ellen

    Nice, I didn't realize that the match between Gary and Angela was that close. :)

    My vote in the final round goes to Sue Ellen.
    The reason for it is because the character and the television show she represents has meant a lot more to me in my life than Angela and Falcon Crest has. So for me there's no contest.

    I really like both characters however this is an easy choice for me. Sue Ellen was an important part of Dallas and its success but Angela was Falcon Crest and the reason for its success. She was always interesting, always entertaining and always compelling. She could say more in one withering look than many characters could say in a whole scene of dialogue. My winner is Angela Channing.

    Easy choice: Angela Channing!

    No way a lip-trembling alcohol-obsessed martyr will be my best soap character winner! :eek: (Sorry....)

    If Angela does win I will demand a full inquiry into how many members @Angela Christmas bribed and blackmailed to ensure that result.

    I resent the implication that the five cases of Pinot Grigio that mysteriously appeared on my doorstep could possibly be anything other than the magic of Christmas.

    Owing to the meatier role and character arc, my vote goes to the Angela Gioberti who was destined never to become Mrs Carl Brock. Her choosing to believe the lies of her fiancé’s brother Adam proved fateful, not just for her life's path but also because it came back to haunt her.

    I sometimes wonder how her life would have turned out if, instead, she’d not become the missuses Channing, Erikson, Stavros and Agretti in turn.
    Would there have been a Falcon Crest estate left to pass on to her children and grandchildren?
    Would she have ended up high on the grain like her brother and… Sue Ellen for much of that lady's life? Or, was Angela too strong willed for that? She seemed to thrive more when her men were weaker than her. It was strange to me how Angela's identity remained so wrapped up in Douglas Channing, a man whose hatred for her she couldn’t really see.

    What a difficult decision.

    NOT.

    My role goes to my beauty, my world, my love and my life - the one and only SUE ELLEN EWING, who regardless of whether she wins or loses is forever..

    THE QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING IN IT.

    (I have sadly never watched Falcon Crest, but it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference if I had).

    There is so much more to Sue Ellen than her battle with alcoholism (Martyr? I don't think so!) She's just....oh my God I'm so in love with her I can't even put it into words. :love6:
