    The Twitter Universe is a chatter over the DVD Cover of season 4 of 'Friends'.

    The theory is the whole 10 seasons of Friends was a dream of Rachel's since she is the only character awake in the promotional cover. Dallas fans we must unite against this upstart, pretentious newcomer wishing to trample on the most talked about 'Dream Season' in television history. I stand united behind Pam's dream.

    I love Friends. Still you do realize that the reason their fans are talking about a season possibly being a dream is because of Dallas right?

    In some odd way Dallas has influened everything that came after it and set the bar for what people could expect from TV. So I don't see a rivalry there, if anything I see it as a homage to Dallas. ;)

    How does it make sense that the only character awake is the one dreaming?

    I cannot explain it either. When I posted this thread it was a theory generated by fans of Friends and the media picked up on it.

    I agree. Everytime something like this pops up the story always reverts back to Dallas. Recent articles on the return of Roseanne and how they explain the return of Dan had writers referencing Bobby Ewing, Dallas....and it was all a dream. Such was the influence of the "Dream Season" and its revelation it's now somehow held to a lofty standard. Perhaps the writers on Dallas all those years ago were right. We may not have liked it at the time but the "Dream Season" could now be regarded as something to beat.

    Dallas...its influence still permeates.
