    My votes:

    Richard vs Cole
    Richard was a multi-layered complex character which made his so much more interesting than a stereotypical villain who was just bad. His introduction to the series gave the show new dynamism. By contrast, Cole was relatively boring. Richard was the more outstanding character.

    Melissa vs Emma
    I loved both characters and Emma played such a significant role in the early episodes which was when I first became a Falcon Crest fan. However, I can't get away from the fact that Melissa was the more interesting character who wasn't afraid to form alliances with anyone or to take them on in her quest to be the most powerful person in Tuscany Valley so she gets my vote.

    Match 1: Richard Channing
    Match 2: Melissa Agretti.

    Yeah, Richard. I really liked Cole -- it's hard to make goodness interesting and he did a great job -- but then they kind of ran out of things for him to do. Richard was so mercurial that he was able to weather the ups and downs of the show and never stop being interesting.

    Emma. Melissa's first few years when she was scheming and sexy and noirish were great, but then she got loud and shrill and stayed at that pitch until she was killed off. Emma was great in her first few years as well, and again in Season 9, and was pretty likeable the rest of the time.

    1) Richard
    2) Melissa


    Things are getting very heated in the ‘New Globe’. Melissa is mad that Richard printed the identity of her baby’s father, (a scene from season 2, 1982-‘83):

    Melissa: “I’m here to see Richard!”

    Diana: “Mr. Channing is busy.”

    Melissa: “Scraping the dirt of his nails, I’m sure. How could you do this to me?”

    Richard: “Oh easily!”

    Melissa: “I won’t let you ruin the life of an innocent child!”

    Richard: “He has his mother to thank for his reputation.”

    Melissa: “You’re nothing but scum!”

    Richard: “Well. My article has hit home! I like that gut reaction from our readers. That’s what sells newspapers.”

    Melissa: “I demand that you print a retraction to this article.”

    Richard: “No! I’m afraid that would violate my journalistic principles.”

    Melissa: “Then I’ll sue you for libel.”

    Richard: “Good! Splendid idea! A high profile law suit will give us even more knowledge, in the story.”

    My votes.

    Chase Gioberti vs Lance Cumson
    Chase's sanctimoniousness made him annoying. He thought he was a saint but was prepared to deal from the bottom of the deck when necessary while still insisting he was a good guy. Lance was by far the more interesting character. Initially, servile to his grandmother but willing to double cross her and just about anyone else if it gave him an advantage. I can even forgive him for bringing that Babbleonia woman into the series. My vote goes to Lance.

    Angela Channing vs Maggie Gioberti
    I'm sorry, I liked Maggie but she doesn't stand a chance with me against Angela, one of my all time favourite TV characters. My vote goes to Angela.

    Match 3: Lance
    March 4: Angela

    Chase Gioberti, Jacqueline Perrault's son
    who started his Tuscany adventure full of optimism, a second chance to become a family again, far away from the immoral big city.
    Little did he know that his dream was the beginning of a nightmare, and how this was going to affect his character and sense of morality.


    Maggie Gioberti
    Who suffered every suffering so gracefully, until she couldn't suffer no more.

    They were the heart & soul of Falcon Crest imo.

    The first one is relatively easy: Lance over Chase any day of the week.

    I can't bear to vote against Maggie or Angela. It's like Sophie's Choice without the over-acting.

    So I'll vote for Maggie...knowing in my heart of hearts that Angela will likely win this round anyway. That's the closest I can get to having it both ways.
