Okay...I've waited a long time to post anything on this so I feel with 2009 just 26 days away, the time has come.

FALCON CREST is ready to be uncorked. It has a solid premise, a solid cast and supporting cast AND it has a very solid and strong fanbase.

We all know the story. "FALCON CREST will be contingent on the success of future KNOTS LANDING sales." - WB Chat.

So here are my thoughts...

WB needs to release the series already, or sell it to another studio so its fans can start buying and enjoying the show again. Holding it in the dusty vaults of your organization is not going to make you money and offering it to another organization for release would be most appreciated.

Hope you'll consider this option as it's obvious you're ignoring the FALCON CREST fanbase and relying on the fans of KNOTS LANDING to prove FALCON CREST is worthy of a release.

Who was the brainchild behind that wonderful decision? KNOTS LANDING only followed FALCON CREST for four or five episodes at the end of FALCON CREST's run. For nine SUCCESSFUL years, FALCON CREST followed DALLAS on Friday nights in the 10 p.m. time slot on CBS. Whoever researched this fact didn't do their job very well. Angela Channing would've already run them out of town for that error. Posted Image

So, can you please get someone reliable to do the marketing research for FALCON CREST? The least you can do is include a trailer of FALCON CREST in the second season sets of KNOTS LANDING to test the waters?

It'll hardly cost WB a fortune to create a 5 minute featurette on FALCON CREST to get it out there for others to watch either again or for the very first time.

C'mon WB! Let's shake off the dust from your creative team and get people in there who know what they're doing!

Thank you for

I don't think I've seen that much of "FC," besides of course clips from a couple of defunct "FC" websites. It might be good to see again, I think.
"CBS Sports presents...The Prudential College Football Report, sponsored by The Prudential, offering a full range of insurance and other financial services. The Prudential: the Rock...it's strong, it's on the move, it's bigger than life."

(Don Robertson's opening from The Prudential College Football Report in the 1986 season, modified from what it was in 1985, in that "other financial services" was said instead of just "financial services")

What they should do is include FC's pilot in either the next Knot's or Dallas dvd release. If they are sick of releasing season sets that decline in sales volume after volume, they might consider offering the whole shebang in one big boxed set at the start. I think the wave of the future is boxed sets, not season sets anyway.

i couldn't afford complete series sets, as the shipping and customs charges to UK would probably cost more than the actual boxset. But would like to see this show on dvd

Just to let other UK posters here know who are interested, Falcon Crest first season started on Zone Romantica yesterday. It's on from Monday to Friday around 11.30 am and at 7 pm. I don't think you can get the station on Virgin Media. You can get it on Sky.
