    I doubt CBS would be interested. But someone else might and if Warner shopped it they could find it a home.

    We did get to see Gary and Val (and how brief it was for Val, with Lucy, the long forgotten daughter in tow no less) on TNT's Dallas. I was glad Gary got an actual front and center story!

    Netflix seems to be the go-to for revivals now. Fuller House, Gilmore Girls ...

    I'd take a Netflix 4 parter for Knots Landing like Gilmore Girls.

    I'd rather the remaining twelve seasons were officially released.

    Does it have to be a choice? Success with one might lead to the other.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a choice, but I'd feel very wary of any attempt to directly revisit Knots either as a reboot or a continuation. The thought of it being bastardised in the way that Dallas was in recent years isn't a pleasant one.

    I'm not jumping on the "TNT Dallas is evil" bandwagon here, because I don't think it's that cut and dried. But the general consensus seems to be that it fouled that nest somewhat. Personally, I did not appreciate the way Gary and Val were treated on that show. It bothered me more than the way Lucy, Ray or Cliff were treated because Knots feels closer to my heart.

    I'm not a gambler, so I take the view that no new series means no risk of disappointment.


    Anything that gets those remaining seasons officially released is good news in at least one regard.

    Is a limited series a mini-series? What kind of story should it be? A whodunit, or another "Empire Valley"? Constance McCashin as Laura's evil twin sister?
