i watched the original sporadically ... it was on Friday nights and i was in High School and then college. i remember the whole "who shot JR?" thing ... it was big! they lost me when they killed off Bobby for a season then brought him back, presented as the whole season he was dead was just a dream. i don't remember if was Bobby's dream or Pam's dream, think it was Pam. by then the show had jumped the shark and got desperate for me. i watched Knot's Landing a lot more because it was on Thursday nights (i think).
