And the show was never the same. Rumor had it at the time that Jane
Seymour had her booted off because she was more attractive than Seymour.
At least that's what someone told me on this newsgroup several years ago
when the switch happened and I asked this very same question. For some
reason the Colleen character instantly became a lot dumber with the cast
switch (one week she is practically doing surgery, the next week she
couldn't answer a basic science question in class). After that, the show
was never the same. I saw her afterwards as the ghost of a murdered girl
in a cheesy made for tv movie. And of course, you can see her pre-DQMW
days in the 'Disaster' episode of Star Trek: TNG.
I'm glad you asked this. I always preferred Erika Flores. Growing up in the
country she truly seemed to me to be a genuine country girl. Although I grew
to get used to the new Colleen, the newer one seemed too 1990s to me and not
as genuine. Erika was lovely and quite a good actress. I enjoyed watching
the earlier episodes of DQMW because of Erika. But now it seems that I can't
locate the DQMW reruns on any of our cable stations. Here's hoping that come
Aug. 1st we'll be able to get the PAX network here locally for the reruns at
least. Not sure yet.

You've got to be kidding. Nothing against her, but she was a very
ordinary-looking kid, a bit on the plump side toward the end.

Jane and Erika were VERY close. Jane even tried to get Erika BACK on the show!
Erika left because of her father. Her dad insisted on things like personal body
guards and made everyone's life on the set a living hell until they had no
choice but to part company! They would STILL love to get Erika back. please
dont believe all the *crap* that's out there. I have this from a very inside
source and its been confirmed by several people!
It's almost amazing to me that this is still an issue....then I think how I'd
deal with it if they made a DQ movie and someone besides Brandon Douglas played
(not very well I'm afraid!!!)
by the way...I liked both Colleens too!
Whenever someone takes over a character, sometimes I can't stand them,
sometimes I like them better, but rarely do I not care at all. But I
guess I was so interested in Sully and Mike that the others didn't
matter as much. Well, Loren did, and yes, many of the others. I think
I wasn't watching for a few weeks when they switched actresses, and
that's probably why it wasn't such a big deal at the time.
