Not an instant hit but grabbing average ratings, NBC decided to move the show from Wednesdays to Mondays in the middle of it's run. Due to lack of promotion this resulted in decreasing ratings and soon the show's cancellation. See more »
Your typical Aaron Spelling soap of lust, greed, sex, backstabbing, and fame.
I just finished watching the debut of this campy Aaron Spelling serial (Titans) and right away it had me hooked. Like another one of Spelling's best Melrose Place these characters glue you to your TV set. Spelling once again proves he knows how to mine merry melodrama from the gaudy traumas of the rich and beautiful, in Beverly Hills where there's to much gold and glamour to count. To start here's a rundown of the family the industrialist (Perry King) who is housed across the street from his proud ex-wife (Victoria Principal) then enter a steamy trophy bride (Yasmine Bleeth) who's hellbent on destroying not only daddy dearest but the entire family including her recent navy love (Casper Van Dien) King's hunk of a son. Wow! These plots and stories sound like fun! That's why Spelling is great he always keeps high drama present which leaves the viewer guessing as to what is going to happen next also the casting is great especially Victoria Principal who always is a pleasure to watch. I remember her classic days on Dallas it's great to see her in prime time again. Melrose Place veterans Perry King and Jack Wagner bring great stability to the show. Iit's always nice to have two great TV veterans around for one more time. And for former Baywatch babe Yasmine Bleeth need I say more except if looks could kill. Everyone should have a good time with this guilty pleasure which will have plenty of guilt to go around. Sure it remains to be seen if "Titans" will live up to the expectations of other Spelling hits such as Melrose Place or Dynasty, but I would be willing to bet it will. It's sure going to be fun.
