It Wasn't Given a Chance
11 January 2001 | by (Madison,Tennessee) – See all my reviews

What happened ? Someone said let's bring back the greatest daytime drama in the history of television, update it and bring it to primetime. Great Idea! And it was...........or fourteen episodes worth. Quite possibly the best thing to fill in the Friday night void left behind by Dallas, the series was killed by Gulf War coverage and the lack of foresight of letting the fans find it. Ben Cross was ideal for the new Barnabus and Joanna Going had more smoldering sexuality than anyone else on the set. This show could have made them break-out stars had it lived, but now they're back to scrounging for roles. In fact, all of the new cast worked perfectly except for the new Carolyn, Barbera Blackburn. Standing out like an apple in an orange patch, she just didn't seem to fit. The new Carolyn should have gone to someone like Sarah Michelle Gellar or Maureen Flannigan. On a lesser note, we didn't get to see any of the old series stars return in new roles. Lara Parker would have been great as the new Phoenix and Johnathan Frid could have taken over Professor T. Elliott Stokes. Oh well, too little, too late.......
