    One of the things I dislike in long running soap operas is when the writers change a character significantly so they behave in a way that it totally unrecognisable to the person we originally knew. Did that ever happen to Angela? Looking back on the entire run of the series, I think her character was pretty consistent throughout its run but I am I right?

    Well, IMO post-Season 6 Angela had a total lack of empathy with anybody at all. The fact of trying to get Melissa even crazier was an example of that since she herself was the mother of 2 (or 3 if we count Richard too) unstable children.

    Hiring that wacko FX guy was stupid and out-of-character, as was Richard´s attempt at declaring her mentally incompetent. The latter storyline was of a very bad taste given Ms. Wyman´s real-life age and especially fragile look.

    Besides, those plots were full of holes and there was no consistency about why she or he did that (only "just because"...they were the baddies). The longer they ran, the crazier they got. I wonder what Angela would have done if Wyman hadn´t got sick and her character hadn´t been put in a coma...

    Even Jane Wyman called Angela "a bitch".
    Yes, instead of the Buck Henry character, we should have had Melissa having legit hallucinations. Is she seeing ghosts? Is she faking it to achieve some goal?

    I always wanted the Colbyian UFO to happen on FALCON CREST instead -- with Melissa the abduction victim (or claiming to be) as opposed to Fallon#2.

    Can you imagine Angelas reaction to that? :lol:
    "Oooooh Melissa, poor sweetheart, that is horrible! Please ... sit down here and tell me all about it.." while starting the tape recorder on her desk. :D
