  • The Knots Landing Block Party

    Exactly like all the other reminiscent parties. Cast, crew and creators look back on the show's finest moments and people get emotional. It surprised me to see Constance McCashin in this one given the circumstances surrounding her character's exit a few years before this - I think in 1989 or so. Nicollette Sheridan says how nice it is to remember all these wonderful times and have nice memories of the show and that she practically gre up on Knots Landing. I loved how they even asked the fans on teh streets how they feel about the show going off the air, only shows us how huge this used to be.moreless
