BIGGEST LETDOWN


FATHER CHRISTOPHER, FALCON CREST
Father Christopher provided FALCON CREST with something they've never had -- a male character with a conscience. He wasn't just a priest who wanted his flock to conduct themselves in the Christian way. As Julia Cumson's illegitimate son, he was an heir to the Falcon Crest fortune and had a stake in the business decisions they made. As a spiritual man plunked down in the backbiting world of vineyard politics, he added a welcome dimension to the standard maneuvering of the Gioberti and Channing families. When he was written out of the show, FALCON CREST lost a potentially pivotal and exciting character, a talented actor in Ken Olin, and an opportunity to develop stories that were different from the usual confrontational plots that FALCON CREST and other prime time soaps have exhausted.
