5 Other Soaps TVGN Should Start Airing
No. 2: Falcon Crest
While Dynasty and Dallas are forever being cited as perfect soap operatic examples of Reagan era greed and excess, there's one 80's staple that never quite gets its popular culture due. Yes PBS, I am still pissed that y'all left Falcon Crest off your Pioneers of Television special about primetime soaps!
Forget about Steinbeck, the person responsible for truly showing the world how much wrath grapes could inspire was Earl Hamner. Has there ever been a more ruthless televised senior citizen than vineyard diva Angela Channing (the late Jane Wyman)? Richard Channing could have given Tony Soprano pointers on how to handle Livia! Talk about a soap ripe for a revisitation.
