I think Knots Landing was one of the best night time soap operas. It was a spin off of Dallas. Unlike Dallas, Falcon Crest, Dynasty and Dynasty II-The Colbys (I liked all of them as well) , Knots stated out in a middle class neighborhood with all the problems of suburbia. The first year really dealt more with character development and you getting to know the characters. Not the most exciting of Knots seasons but it started to set things in motion. Can not wait for Season Two to be released, when Donna Mills joins the cast and then from then on Knots really got rolling.
