Well, I'm officially in love with this show. I just finished the first season and can't wait to see Donna Mills/Abby come on as I start the second. Every character on the canvas I enjoy watching, except probably for Richard Avery. What an ASS!
Yes, I hated Richard the first time I watched Knots Landing, too. It wasn't until my second or third run-through of the series that I came to appreciate what a great, compelling character he actually is. He's such a Willy Loman-esque loser, but John Pleshette is so good that he makes you (or at least me) feel kind of sorry for him in spite of his behavior. Richard's now one of my favorite KL characters.

Kenny and Ginger, on the other hand, are a complete waste of time and space.
Well, maybe I'll feel differently if I end up re-watching the series again down the line. Lol. I just feel like he's such an ass to Laura, who clearly doesn't deserve it, but still puts up with it. Laura's actually becoming one of my favorite characters. She's much more of a reserved person compared to both Karen and Val (both of whom I also love), and is probably the one that I find the most interesting so far.

As for Ginger and Kenny, yeah...they're just kind of there. I wish they would split them up and give Ginger something else to do. He just showed up at the Fairgate's during the premiere of season two.
