    EPISODE 13: COLONEL MUSTARD IN THE CONSERVATORY WITH THE WRENCH

    It’s such a thrilling time for Knots Landing. Gary and Mack attempt to put the pieces of the attempted murder of Val together, in the hopes of finding proof against Jill, although neither one is completely sold. In the process, Frank, Pat, Peggy, and Karen get involved, all of them frantically trying to prove the craziest thing that’s ever happened to someone they know. Allegedly. Meanwhile, Michael likes a girl but she’s more interested in Johnny (Michael's a cutie, but this is not surprising) and Harold spends the episode killing insects in his apartment, all of which has nothing to do with anything, but it’s fun. There are no words for the hilariousness of Gary getting caught breaking and entering Jill's apartment (is this where he realizes how insanely in love he is with Val?), and Jill's ditzy secretary is a hoot (stereotype and all). All of the amateur sleuthing leads to a thrilling last scene, as Mack, Gary, Karen, and Frank locate Miss Forger but she’s dying and certainly can’t speak. Oh, it’s all so soapy! A few feet away, Jill has overheard and, satisfied, walks away in a stunning ending to a tension-filled episode. Paige, Greg and Abby take the week off, but you can’t blame them – I think the last time I was so hooked on the show was during Val's split personality stint!

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    To me it is, i'd take Michael over ANY guy of the whole show at that time. And i loved the mexican stuff because of his many shirtless scenes and wished they would have been trapped in that truck for a few more days so that he gets even more sweaty and all. :D

    EPISODE 14: WITHOUT A CLUE

    It’s such torturous fun to watch Jill eradicate proof just before anyone gets to it – she’s always one step ahead of Gary or Mack or Frank, and they don’t even know how close they’ve been getting! Her psychosis taking over more each day, Jill decides the bestest way to Gary's heart is by cutting off his saddle and therefore breaking his neck and taking care of his paraplegic ass forever? Or something like that. Meanwhile, things take a shocking turn when Abby and Ted convince Greg to ask for Meg back, basically because he can’t possibly win the election otherwise. A fun and interesting story (Greg's run for Mayor) that suddenly acquires real consequences for the other people on the show. When Mack tells Greg he’ll get Meg back over his dead body, Greg gets drunk and walks around the streets, which is so Knots Landing and so Greg!
