In Santa Barbara, California, the fascinating and tumultuous life of the rich Capwells around who gravitate other families, from the Lockridges, the rival family, to the Andrades or the Perkins, more modest families but which destinies know the same torments.Written by
Three veteran actors were set to play major characters on "Santa Barbara", but were recast at the last minute: before the show began, Lloyd Bochner was hired to play patriarch C.C. Capwell, but a heart attack forced him to bow out and producers hired his former "Dynasty" co-star Peter Mark Richman to act as a temporary recast; Rosemary Forsyth was hired to play Sophia Capwell, and filmed Sophia's initial scenes in disguise as a bearded mystery man named Dominic that aired onscreen, but she chose not to continue and was replaced by Judith McConnell before Dominic was unmasked as Sophia; and Samantha Eggar was hired to play Mason's long-lost mother Pamela Capwell, but opted out of her contract at the last minute and was quickly replaced by fellow British actress Shirley Ann Fields.

Santa Barbara got me through a tough period in the late 1980s. For a while there it was the only thing i really looked forward to. Mason's rich sarcasm, Gina I's uncontrollable facial expressions, Gina II's bone structure, Eden's dreamy egotism, Kelly's bad luck, the coincidences, the overheard conversations, the misunderstandings that went on for weeks at a time, the laughter, the tears, the sorrow and the pity, the daily dose of hyperbole, hysteria and melodrama, the little bit of insanity in a sanitized world, that was Santa Barbara. It's been gone from our screens for years, in Australia at least, where i used to watch it. But it lives on in the backwaters of my mind, often resurfacing, at odd times, giving me solace in times of extreme absurdity. Thank you, Santa Barbara, I will never forget you.
