    could FC have been spun off from KL. Think about it, instead of the Giobertis living in New-York, they live in a cul-de-sac. They could have had recurring roles on KL's first two seasons, appearing in barbecues and community events and then, the whole first episode of FC actually happens on KL.

    On the other hand, Kenny and Ginger who practically had no plots in Knots Landing, turn out to be related to the Channing and they become the stars of FC.

    Oh hell no, Falcon Crest would have bombed big time had Kenny and Ginger been the "Chase and Maggie" so to speak of Falcon Crest. As for Chase and Maggie on Knots Landing, it does sound interesting to have them living on the cul-de-sac, but wouldn't they have been just like Sid and Karen? When you think about it, both couples had solid marriages and kids.

    Another thing that doesn't make sense is why would they live in Knots Landing when the Tuscany Valley was also in California? That's why it makes more sense that they moved to the valley from another state. That's my opinion, anyway.

    actually, the giobertis role on Knots Landing would be very distant, they would be recurring only, maybe they could be the couple who live on the very first house of the cul-de-sac.

    you're right about them living in California,

    it was just a suggestion....

    I actually like the idea abbylexis. Had they appeared in a handful of episodes of Knots Landing we would at least know a little about them, much like we got to know a little about Gary and Val through Dallas. However, the only hurdle I could see is that if they were going to live in California it would be more likely that they would live where they at least have family. Still, I'm sure the television writers could have found a way to make it work.

    well, Chase could have been close to his father Joseph who visited him in the cul-de-sac regularly since it was close to san fransisco.

    maybe they could have had this bittersweet relationship, where they both care about each other. However, Joseph is always pressuring Chase to live at the valley and Chase wants nothing to do with the winery. His father's death causes him to re-evaluate things and out of guilt he decides to run the winery and move to FC as his father always had wanted him to do.

    Yeah that could have worked. As Sid says we could at least have known a little more about them, like the parallel with Dallas.

    I thought the whole point of Chase taking on his father's legacy was that he and Jason weren't close??
