At the end of the eighth season, Susan Sullivan was fired by the show's new regime for money reasons, at the same time, she left because of creative differences, a decision that was understood simply, after what the new writers and producers had done to the show in the season 8. She would guest star in 2 episodes, at the beginning of the ninth and final season. See more »

I got hooked on this show after the first few years had passed. These nighttime soap operas were known for their season-ending cliffhangers and this one was no exception. The best seasons of the series were 1986-1989, when they experimented with a faster-paced style of storytelling that was quite smart and exciting. This had by far the best sense of humor of all the soaps and featured excellent acting from Jane Wyman, Ana-Alicia, David Selby and Susan Sullivan (now on "Dharma and Greg") Interesting note: during many of its later years, this show's music was composed by Mark Snow, who went on to do the famous "X-Files" theme and score. I wish they still showed reruns of this show somewhere!
