    Was für eine wundervolle Titelmelodie, vielleicht die Beste überhaupt, zu einer der legendärsten Prime-Time-Soaps der Fernsehgeschichte.
    Ich liebe Falcon Crest, mehr noch als Dallas und Denver. Solche genialen und wundervollen Serien gibt es heute einfach nicht mehr.
    Schade drum, aber die Erinnerung, auch dank dieser unvergesslichen Titelmelodie, bleibt für immer bestehen.

    Such a shame that SoapNet doesn’t air this program. Anyone who watches ABC soaps knows that Brian Frons is an ass.

    An even bigger pile of bs that Season 1 can be purchased on Amazon. com for $15, and other seasons cost over $50.

    Maybe I should ask the Easter Bunny for a TV station…

    @Nemesis7293 … yes… such as the show New Christine… some woman cooing “ooooo, ya-a, ya-a, ya.” and that’s it, the theme… LOL.

    Best music and best looking cast of the genre. Susan Sullivan, how gorgeous is she?! ;-)

    I was too young to understand this show as a kid…But what I do remember is watching these opening credits immediately after The Dukes of Hazzard went off, just so i could see the falcon turn his head near the end of the theme. It got me every time! i distinctly remember my parents and aunt saying, uh oh jason. . here comes the bird!

    I enjoyed wathching this show every week with my wife just before we were married. The some years later we met Lorenzo Lamas at “Chiller Theater” and I told him how much we enjoyed the show every week and he agreed it was a great way to spend a Friday Night. He sure was right!

    @Nemesis7293 Some of my favorite tv series intros from the 80s include Masada and North and South.

    By far the best theme of all these legendary series. Although I have watched little of Falcon Crest I liked it. It was more simplistic than Dynasty and the fact that was rural made it more romantic and catcy. I also don’t watch series anymore. There not gonna be again series like Dynasty, Dallas and Falcon Crest. The new ones are one of the same and are devoid of the originality of the abovementioned. Only by hearing this song memories come by and give that nice nostalgic feeling.

    @skywheelrider Yep, I loved Thursday and Friday nights. Magnum PI and Knots Landing, and Dallas and Falcon Crest respectively. :)

    I wondered who JR could tick off next. :D

    The opening theme kicks ass !

    @mark40511 – Falcon Crest had very over the top acting, amazing locales, and the grand-bitch Angela Channing that could rip you to shreds in the wink of an eye. It also had the mystique of a wine dynasty in the families in the valley-Agrettis and Giobertis.

    But the last two years are what sank this one-much like “Dallas”-the attention was on too many different people instead of 10 main characters. The storylines failed as a result, sadly.

  23. skywheelrider says:

    @sxwrulz Yep! Imagine that, FRIDAY NIGHT! Now whatever is put on Friday night is just filler for the most part. It’s just another night on television. Of course, back then you did not have over 300 channels to choose from, either.

  24. skywheelrider says:

    Friday night was television event night back then….Dallas, followed by Falcon Crest. I was a child during that time, and from 9-11pm you DID NOT bother my parents, except during commercials. If us kids followed that simple rule, we were allowed to stay up until 11pm. For that reason, this show became one of my favorites to watch. And heaven forbid the phone ring at any time during that two hour block! LOL
