    They had a vision

    but everyone hated that too. Sometimes it's just impossible to please the audience.

    Melissa Agretti should have seen that UFO, circa S7.

    I wanted the Colbys on DYNASTY for several weeks before spinning off, and we get to learn Constance was involved in peripherally in the planning the recent massacre in Moldavia.

    And when she dies, there's a video will where she calls select persons "whores, you dirty whores!"
    Like, totally.

    No-one, not even an alien, is going to abduct that hysterical bitch.

    But they just might -- if they made her that way!

    Falcon Crest was written by aliens?

    Shouldn’t that read, “presumed dead recast second cousin shows up with amnesia married to her second cousin who happens to be your double first cousin who is already as closely related to you as a half-sibling before he turns out to be your half-sibling?”

    From season 7 on ... yes. And the translation to human language made it suffer even further.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Listen, I have to give credit to the aliens: whatever the human doctors were not able to do for Fallon, the Martians delivered when they brought her back to earth on DYNASTY.

    Another Sophia Lauren award winner.
    But I can't imagine anyone else as Angela Channing, much as I respect Stanwyck.

    Actually this was an unexpected shocking twist, as the UFO was supposed to take Francesca.

    But her plan was unintentionally sabotaged by Phillip and the alien took Fallon instead.
    If that doesn't prove how magnificent The Colbys was then I don't know what does.

    Shouldn’t that read “the UFO was supposed to take Fallon’s first cousin once removed ascending and occasional mother-in-law and former aunt (by marriage) Francesca”?
