The best nighttime "soap" ever. It is hard to compare this to "Dallas," which seems like a poor cousin in comparison, at least to me. But as many have already noted, the show's glory days were numbered. I think one of the turning points came when Pamela Sue Martin, who was great as Fallon, was replaced by the jowly Emma Samms, who was absolutely terrible as she tried to hide a British accent. This was also around the time when the whole "Colbys" storyline was introduced in preparation for the spinoff, and we all know that it deserved its tragic fate. The first four seasons or so were great fun to watch; do yourself a favor and avoid the later episodes.
