Storyline

Based on the novel and 1949 film of the same name, this prime-time soap detailed the lives of haves and have-nots in the sleepy Southern hamlet Truro, Florida. The haves live in huge mansions on Flamingo Road, while the rest of the characters did anything (blackmail, murder, voodoo) to obtain that address as well. Written by Mark Faulkner <mtfalknr@cc.memphis.edu>

My favorite of all the prime-time soaps.
28 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Flamingo Road" intrigued the high school boy that I then was far more than "Dallas," "Dynasty," or any other of the many prime-time soaps of the 1980s. The cast was stellar, the best a series of this type could ask for, consisting of a perfect combination of classic film veterans and talented newcomers. The steamy South itself, with all its accoutrements, both realistic and stereotypical, was the actual major living-and-breathing character of the show. From the pilot TV movie in 1980 to the second and final season, I was hooked. When no new episodes premiered in the fall of '82, I was saddened. Withdrawal symptoms of lust for Constance and admiration for Lane lasted quite a while. I have wondered about the arrested universe of "Flamingo Road" all these many years. How nice it would be to have a release of the complete series on DVD and/or Blu-ray.
