    Okay, Alexis moved into Cecil's triplex penthouse after he died, so we never saw the mansion he left her (who called it "Nine Oaks" -- did we hear it on the show itself, on THE COLBYS ??). I've also imagined that Cecil left his widow a Loire Valley chateau and vineyard.

    But had we actually seen Cecil's Denver mansion (and I always want Jason and The Colbys to stay there in early-Season 6, rented from Alexis, before they spin off) what real life estate would you like to see used?

    Since FiLoLi was in Northern California, how about one close by, and with ominous overtones: The Winchester Mystery House

    Imagine an episode where Alexis moves in and then just keeps getting lost in the house. Being lured deeper and deeper into the bowels of the house as she tries to find her way out. Going threw doorways that lead to nowhere or worse leave her back where she started. Secret corridors and creaky bookcases that open on to hidden rooms. She slowly goes mad. Well madder than she already was. Of course Dex and Clay rescue her because that's what they do. They ram right through the walls in the A-Team's van aided by Daniel Reece. And then it's all over. Phew...

    It has a touch of "Hammer" that seems perfect for Joan Collins. Obviously it didn't work for Linda Purl (it's the mansion from Dark Mansions, isn't it?)

    Yes, and Spelling bought the Clue set to use if the Dark Mansions pilot was picked up, I think. It wasn't and so it became The Carlton. It should have been Cecil's Nine Oaks briefly before Alexis decided to turn it into a luxury hotel. The set itself should have been a storyline in season 7.

    This:

    is the source for "Nine Oaks" which we're told is "next door" to the Carrington mansion. The book is officially licensed so it's considered canon. I must admit I read it when I was young and impressionable. I remember Fallon's eye color changes from chapter to chapter.

    Well why not? Her whole head could change too. Just like her brothers and sister. Mutants, the lot of them.

    Reminds me of the theory about Marge Simpson and how her hair hides actual rabbit ears because Springfield has been mutated by the local nuclear power plant.

    What's this got to do with the conversation at hand? Absolutely nothing. :D
