Current News:

As we have only learnt just now, the Woolsey Fire, a destructive wildfire in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, destroyed many parts of the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu Canyon. In particular, the main house, which posed as Richard and Maggie's ranch home during seasons 7 and 8, burnt to the ground on 11/09/2018.
Current satellite images documenting the vast destruction of the area are available on Google Earth if you enter the ranch's address at 31727 Mulholland Highway, Malibu, CA 90265.

Note:

Relaunch of our Behind the Scenes section:
We are going episodic with this update...
Due to the increasing number of entries per season, which often took a long time to load the site, we decided to divide each season in episodic sub-sites. From now on, you will find all the background information organized per episode. We also included links to the previous episode and the next episode at the bottom of each episode so you can go back and forth quickly. We also added a Google Custom Search bar at the bottom so you can search our website easily.
If you want to access a specific episode directly (without clicking on a seasonal list of episodes), you can use the usual seasonal URL to the Behind the Scenes section and simply add a slash plus the three-digit episode number (as in the total count of episodes, not in a season-wise count), e.g. if you want to go to # 098, simply add "/098" to the usual link like this: http://www.falconcrest.org/english/master.php?path=show/episodes/ai/bts/4/098
We hope you will enjoy these improvements.
