Michelle Phillips first joined the series as scheming Anne Matheson in 1987 for a fixed number of episodes, but she was asked to reprise her role in 1989 after the departure of Donna Mills, the show's main villainess. When audiences felt that the character had become too sympathetic, the writers created Claudia Whitaker (played by Kathleen Noone) who was seen as a more devious Abby-like character, with whom Anne often battled.

M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie:
Your Dad hit you.
You wouldn't understand.
M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie:
When I was six years old, I was running through the house and I knocked over a lamp and it broke. My Dad beat the hell out of me. He just didn't spank me, he hit me with his fist... Gave me two black eyes, Jason. I was six years old! When I was 10, I got home from school one day, my Dad hit me in the stomach and I didn't know why. I didn't ask. But I told myself, "Hey he's just blowing off steam, right?" It was hard to say out loud that he abused me. I...

Knots Landing has got to be one of the best shows ever to grace our TV sets. The show that started out as a spin off of another good show Dallas turned into a guaranteed hour of enjoyable tv. Yes the show had its good and bad episodes but you always knew you could look foward to seeing your favorite neighbors on the Cul-Da-Sac Seaview Circle. By far the greatest female character on the show was Karen Fairgate Mackenzie(Michele Lee), she was married to the 2 greatest men ever Sid Fairgate(Don Murray) the owner of Knots Landing Motors and after his death she met and married Mack Mackenzie(Kevin Dobson)a lawyer. I enjoyed these two together most, they had such great chemistry together on screen they actually were believable as a married couple. When Abby(Donna Mills) arrived the show became even better, her character was always after someones husband and usually ended up with him. Sumner(Bill Devane) was another great addition to the show, his character brought a comic humor with the words he chose to use in tense drama situations. Then you had the Val(Joan Van Ark) and Gary(Ted Shackelford) the two childhood lovers who you just knew would always be together even if a few marriages got in between them. The show also had some other great characters like Laura(Constance McCashin), Richard (John Pleashette), Paige(Nicolette Sheridan), Lilimae(Julie Harris), Claudia(Kathleen Noone), Anne(Michelle Phillips), Frank(Lary Riely), Olivia(Tonya Crowe). Knots also had a ton of guest stars like Ava Gardner, Alec Baldwin, Lisa Hartman Black, Red Buttons,and Pam Grier just to name a few. Overall this show still holds up to todays standards and hopefully it will be put on DVD soon so everyone can enjoy it.
