Overview

Season 1 of the Dallas spinoff Knots Landing begins as Gary Ewing Ted Shackelford, ex-alcoholic "black sheep" of the oil-rich Ewing clan, moves from Texas to Southern California with his long-suffering wife Val Joan Van Ark. The couple make their new home in the cul-de-sac community of Knots Landing, living in the house bought for Gary by his mother Miss Ellie. The Ewings' new neighbors include Sid Fairgate Don Murray, Gary's boss at Knots Landing Motors, and Sid's wife Karen Michele Lee and children Diana Claudia Lonow, Michael Pat Petersen and Eric Steve Shaw; record executive Kenny Ward James Houghton and his wife Ginger Kim Lankford; and attorney Richard Avery John Pleshette and his real-estate agent spouse Laura Constance McCashlin. Justin Dana is seen in the first episode as the Averys' son Justin, but will be immediately replaced by Danny Gellis In the course of events and WHAT events! during the first season, Karen will become pregnant and miscarry; Julie Harris will make her first appearance as Val's troublesome mother Lilimae Clements, though she won't become a regular until Season 3; Sid Fairgate will endure run-ins with his ex-wife and his daughter from the previous marriage; and in the two-part season finale, Gary overcelebrates upon being appointed VP of Knots Landing Motors, falls off the wagon, and ends up drunk as a skunk in a cheap flophouse before being rescued by the ever-faithful Val. This season also marks a handful of crossover appearances from the Dallas cast, notably Larry Hagman as Gary's conniving brother J.R. Ewing and Charlene Tilton as Gary's bed-hopping daughter Lucy who, curiously, is seen but once on Knots Landing. Despite the popularity of its parent series, Knots Landing languished in the ratings during its first season. Clearly, what was needed was a compelling reason for viewers to tune in week after week. What was needed was the sort of "villain you love to hate" personified by Dallas' J.R. What was needed was Donna Mills as Abby Cunningham.

    Still worth watching

    I loved this show when it originally aired. I had forgotten that alcoholism was still considered a &quot new&quot disease as I had grown up in an alcoholic/unstable home. I actually cried as I saw again the episodes where Gary returned to drinking. That was worth the price itself as I thought I was past that pain. Where is Season 2? I keep checking.

    Awesome!

    I am so happy I bought this! My husband and I watched this show when it was first on t.v. We loved it! Watching it again is like a trip back in time, (nolstalgic), and we are enjoying it as much this time as the first time around. I hope the second and third seasons come out soon!!!
