best of the 80's primetime soap...shamelessly underrated!
25 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

...this is by far the best of the primetime soap operas of the 80's and terribly underrated to this day...splendid acting...great locations, even the scripts seemed relatively rational in comparison to the other struggling nighttime dramas at this point...(and) miss stephanie beacham steals the whole show in every scene she's in...even the cliffhanging ufo remains one of the most preposterous but, truth be told,breathtaking and courageous season/series endings in soap opera history...this comes highly recommend and there's no possible explanation why this show tanked...besides the fact that it ran opposite "Knots Landing" on CBS during it's second and therefore final season..this series definitely played in a very league of it's own...!
