Trivia

Shortly before the earthquake cliffhanger, Peter Stavros received an unpleasant phone call in the season finale. The phone call was to set up a storyline for the next season in which Peter's brother would drop into the valley to wage war on the Channings. Anthony Quinn was considered for the role, but the story was scrapped when negotiations with the star failed, and the phone scene turned out to be meaningless. See more »

Goofs

When Richard Channing takes control of his fathers newspaper he renames it The New San Francisco Globe. Throughout season 2 some establishing shots of the exterior of the building still show the original "The San Francisco Globe" sign. See more »

What's the 3rd Best?
2 June 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Throughout the 80's, I pretty much grew up on the 2 best family-drama-soap shows off all time (on my list). The "Dynasty Clan" & "Dallas". Whether a Sunday afternoon "pull-hair" fight between Alexis & Crystal or a Tuesday night shooting in J.R.'s office, these shows were/are my favorite. You come to ask yourself though, who comes in 3rd place? In my mind, its the one and only "Falcon Crest" . A high-quality drama about two families & their daily intrigues & plots. Well I simply enjoy that to the max. The Bad one "Angela" against the good one "Maggie". If you have never seen any of those episodes, and i doubt you have not, there is the media library in NYC which has all episodes of all TV shows ever made. Archived. Give it a try if you visit the city.
