Thanks for posting that. For some reason I had remembered it as them showing her firing on people. I would have enjoyed that even more :lol:

I still never understood how Julia became such a criminal mastermind, but it was a good surprise twist.

I'd forgotten Vicky was still there for the third season -- I guess she must have left early or midway? Her husband started sleeping with his ex wife in the third season I guess. I thought it was the second.

Joe Lambie managed to be dull and hot at the same time.

I remember the cliffhanger vividly. I was shocked to find out Julia had murdered Melissa's dad. I remember in Season 1 when she didnt care for FC. So her now caring about Lance losing everything was out of character. The twist like you said was good. I dont recall what season Vicky left. I thought she wasnt needed. I hated her recast Donna Sparks..or whatever her name was...lol

And yes..Joe Lambie was hot.........

Yeah I also thought it was out of character. I would have believed it more if she had gone on a killing spree because she wanted out of Angela's thumb. And all that about her meticulous plans to frame Cole, I don't think she would have done that.

Dana Sparks. Later to bore everyone on Passions.

I wish I could see that scene again where Angela tells Chase that his mother is dead, when everyone had been told to keep that from him for the sake of his health. Dead Lana Turner and Robert Foxworth in pain -- Jane Wyman must have enjoyed that!

In a later season when Julia returns reformed as a Nun....she mentions to Angela that she went crazy because she was tired of being under Angela's thumb.

Dana Sparks was awful on FC and Passions.

Ha....I did hear JW and Lana Turner didnt get along...the same for Robert....Though I also heard Robert was difficult to work with.

The rumors with Jane were Lana, Robert, Simon Mackornindale, Mel Ferrer - between that and Lorenzo Lamas and all his peccadilloes that must have been a fun set.

I will have to look for Julia's later appearances. Were they any good?

I read somewhere too that Jane and Mel didnt get along and that's why he was killed off. I didnt hear anything about Simon. Julia's later appearances were good too. At the end of Season 3 she is presumed dead during a fire at FC and eveyone boards a plane to release Julia's ashes ...forgot the place..and thus the plane crash for season 3. Later she returns very much alive explaining she escaped the fire by going underneath the house..some secret pathway...

Interesting that Henry Stern and Stephen Black were writers for Falcon Crsst during the second season. Too bad their work at ATWT sucked.

I've read in interviews that the reason they didn't fight to keep Julia on screen more is because Abby Dalton was difficult actress to work with. It's a shame because I thought she had a lot to offer. I liked the crazy twist and recall them redeeming her, but it all got shot to hell. I think the first season (and probably only) that I loved was the fourth one. I currently own the first 6 seasons and did a rewatch. That one had a gothic nazi plot I enjoyed, Laura Johnson at Terri and Kate Vernon as a love interest for Lance (his best ever). This show never really found an identity. It was constantly changing but had good periods.

It's the definition of popcorn tv. I enjoyed it and do wanna finish it one day. I especially want to review that final season which is so controversial.

I did a rewatch recently and you sum the series up pretty perfectly, Chris.

The show is at its best for seasons 3-4. Best being a very low bar but it's at the very least entertaining, twisty, campy. There's no depth of character but at least the story driven 'events' seem to have some impact. Season 5 was absolute boredom and the rest of the series a complete mess bar Season 9. It's a genuinely risky, entertaining season of TV - probably stronger in the first half than the second but still great stuff. I know some diehard fans get their knickers in a twist about it with Maggie dying etc etc but it was such a poor series generally that I don't know why the shift in tone actually matters to them.

Still watching Season 2 and was surprised to see Brenda Dickson on Falcon Crest....lol I am not sure if she was on Y&R yet. She had a scene with Abby Dalton as she went looking for her husband.

I'm trying to remember the stories once again since I havent seen them in a long time. So Jacquline is Chase and Richard's mother?? So that would make them brothers but in a later season cliffhanger...season 6 I believe Angela finds out Richard is her son. So that would make them cousins. Richard was stolen from Angela but I forgot from who.

And Melissa's baby Joseph is Cole's. What ever happened to Joseph?? Did he leave with Cole? I can't recall.
