Why Is Vicky Still On The Show?
17 March 2012 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Angela has overextended Falcon Crest using its cash reserve to buy up shares intended to remove Richard Channing (David Selby) as chairman of the San Francisco Globe. Richard sees what she is doing and exercises a by-law allowing him to issue a few million more shares of stock.

Chase (Robert Foxworth), Angela's nephew and half-owner of Falcon Crest confronts her and very nearly threatens to sue her for embezzlement as she has utilized the cash reserve without consulting him.

Maggie (Susan Sullivan) nearly begins an affair with Hollywood producer Darryl (Bradford Dillman) helping her craft her screenplay to be shot, unbeknownst to Maggie by Angela who is hoping to cause a rift in her marriage to Chase. We get a hint from it that there might be more to this character. Boundaries are being pushed to see how audiences will react.

In yet another attempt by the production team to give her something to do on this show Vickie (Jamie Rose), who has taken up running track still has her sights set on romance with her track coach Nick Hogan (Roy Thinnes) a married older man who is Chase's colleague on the Tuscany Board of Supervisors.

Beginning as a more family friendly night-time soap airing right after Dallas on CBS Falcon Crest was created by Earl Hamner Jr. who also created such TV series as The Waltons and Apple's Way.

By this point in the series they had started sexing things up more and more. Not only was a Playboy Playmate of the Year (Shannon Tweed) a regular guest star but we also see Susan Sullivan's dedicated mother/wife in a steamy shower scene nearly cheating on her husband Chase, unthinkable in Season One as neither Chase nor Maggie even hinted at interest in other people.

The Hamner influence would remain in the backstory and any time in the narrative where family solidarity and love of the land would figure in to various episodes and story lines. But the other influences including different writers, input from cast members and attempts to massage ratings began to have their effect making the less of a hybrid and more of a conventional prime-time soap. This was not necessarily for the worse.
