Question: Were you a fan of any of the '80s-era nighttime soaps? I loved Knots Landing. It was smurferriffic. — Aaron Ausiello: I never really got into Knots Landing. I was much more of a Falcon Crest kinda guy — pre-Pilar. In its heyday (1983-Pilar), no prime-time sudser mixed comedy, drama, romance and intrigue more deftly than Crest. And no one — and I repeat, no one — did cliff-hangers better. Again, pre-Pilar. Everything went to pot when she showed up.
