The tone was definitely more serious, less soapy...more in tone with The Waltons (which had the same creator). 

 

I wish it had stayed that way.  That was more in Earl Hamner's wheelhouse.  Lorimar made a mistake in forcing him to make the show more melodramatic.

I have never seen Falcon Crest except for the youtube videos of the opening but my mother was a major fan and she still says, "I still can't believe they fired Ana Alicia! What were they thinking?"

 

I'm with your mother, lol.

Firing Ana Alicia was what ultimately killed the show IMO. They still could have brought in KA character and had them remain rivals.

 

IA (although -- no offense, KA fans! -- Ana-Alicia is a MUCH stronger actress).  I have to think her firing was due to budget issues.  All the primetime soaps were getting very expensive to produce.  Perhaps, the producers believed they could bring in another character and actor for less money.  *shrug

The show had to eat crow and rehire Ana-Alicia as another character.. and actually they were paying her for two salaries since I think when they killed off Melissa they still had to pay her for the rest of her contract... so it actually cost the show more than if they'd kept her.. and had a Pilar vs Melissa feud.

A true Melissa vs Pilar feud could have been interesting especially since we lost Angela for most of season 9.

I'm pissed it took two seasons for Cole/Melissa to get back together and fugly Greg Reardon is there angst. This is annoying. If it was Lance, I could understand since he is still flirting with Melissa. I only have the first four seasons and it's been years since I've watched it. I forgot so many plots. This whole Nazi situation is awful. 

 

I don't get the point of Terry and her abusive ex. I think what annoyed me with FC, is that there main players were interesting. Outside of David so far, I have not cared for the newer characters.

      Are there soap characters on the same show who rarely interacted?
