Pioneers of Television tonight on PBS

It will focus on the primetime soaps of the 1980s-no Falcon Crest, unfortunately.

I never miss a Joan Van Ark interview.

Thanks for the heads up, OP!

If they show Joan's face, they should warn people who might be sensitive to surgical atrocities.

Donna Mills looks pretty fucking fabulous in the previews.

I saw Donna several years ago at the opening of "Wicked" in L.A.. She DOES look fabulous, even up close.

Which is like saying "I never miss a Liv Ullmann musical."

You caught my allusion, Bette, I'm so thrilled. See you on Broadway in the spring!

Kind of disappointing. I don't like the host's voice and as a whole it lacks focus.

I saw Joan Van Ark at that fancy supermarket in Beverly Hills a few months ago.....OMG it was unlike any human face I've ever seen. I almost had to be medicated.

It was a travesty for them not to include Falcon Crest.

Did she stand there with an empty cart and just kind of half-heartedly wave her grocery list in the air waiting for someone to take care of it for her?

Did they discuss my sizable manhood?

I was disappointed that they didn't cover Constance McCashin's (Laura's) rape on KL. She was magnificent in that storyline.

Next week: Super Heroes!

I was kind of hoping it would reveal some things, but most of the behind the scenes stories have been around forever. I was never a huge Falcon Crest fan, but I would have liked something about it, since it was right up there with the other 3 for a while.

I'd like to see something about the other nighttime soaps during that era that didn't last as long, like Flamingo Road or Emerald Point, N.A.S. or The Colbys.

I was not overly impressed.

So why did Rock Hudson do Dynasty when he was so sick? You'd think he'd have wanted to avoid the limelight.

and what cast members snubbed Linda Evans?
