I'm new to this forum (although I used to be on it about 15 years ago or so). Anyway, the way that they wrote off Victoria Principal is probably the single worst thing they ever did to this show. I also was not a fan of how they desperately attempted to resolve it in the reboot. And though I do understand why VP didn't want to come back, I was truly hoping she would reconsider the reboot, at least for some guest appearances. I have been watching the show again on IMDB (I have seen every episode at least a dozen times over the years), and clearly her character was key to the show. I just don't think the producers really believed she would wash her hands clean of the show, particularly after the regret that Patrick Duffy had for leaving.
