Best "WTF?" moment in television history.
Didn't DALLAS pull this stunt, as well? (I never watched a single episode, but I remember hearing others talk about it.) "It was all a dream." What a cop out—the writers paint themselves into a corner, then wipe it all away with a lame excuse.

"Oh well, I guess it was just a TV show."
Patrick Duffy's character had been killed off when he left the show. When he wanted to come back (or they convinced him to come back, not sure which), they decided the entire season since his death had been a dream.

The tricky part is, I read somewhere that the spin-off Knots Landing had acknowledged his death and even named a new baby after his character.
