    Are you sure that it was Katzman who created Angelica Nero rather than Dunne? I somehow don't think the way Angelica developed was Katzman's idea.

    Yes, the way Nero developed was not to Katzman's liking -- he wanted her gone after less than a dozen episodes, but Dunne and his team of writers extended her stay.

    Mr. Katzman proved that he knew better about villains: because a mad terrorist, a bunch of range war mercenaries, a murderous coke addict and another terrorist widow were such clever, glamorous (well, Susan Lucci was!), Dallas-y and not OTT characters. What a double-face the Katzmen were...:ms:

    I really like Rove’s idea of gradually inserting odd scenes into the latter half of 85-86, and then having Bobby wake up at the end. We’ve mostly been watching Bobby’s dream, with a few scenes of the “real” universe slid in at the end.

    Then, they could have picked up the story in the “real” universe one year later. It’s the equivalent of the time jumps that “Desperate Housewives” and other series have done more recently. And they could have had a very intriguing time explaining all that has happened since then. Perhaps, in the season premiere, right after you see Bobby wake up, you cut to Pam. She now has a completely different life (maybe even in a new city) with a new man. Is this guy her husband? How did they meet and why did she leave Dallas? You could do that for multiple characters and then how they got where they are is gradually revealed throughout the early part of the season.
