In February 1992, when Larry Riley had been on the show for five years, audiences were shocked by his haggard appearance after the show took a five-month hiatus. Larry explained had he'd lost eighty pounds (from two hundred twenty) due to kidney trouble, which he attributed to high blood pressure, and would be on dialysis for the rest of his life. After his death four months later, his widow Nina disclosed that Larry's renal failure was actually due to AIDS. See more »
Knots Landing,the TV stalwart through the 80's and some of the 90's was one of TV's best dramas. The characters were so real,they became as well known as family members. The series excelled in complex characters. From the strong women like Karen, Laura,Paige and Abby to the utterly fascinating flawed men like Greg Sumner and Gary Ewing.The show was not without its mistakes- not all the serpentine,complicated plots worked, and the reliance of the plots in later episodes on insane stalkers, was predictable. Nevertheless, when Knots stories jelled,the effects were often breathtaking. Who can forget the great moments like Sid's death and Karen's coping, Abby's marrying Greg in the middle of his romance with Paige, Laura's funeral,the return of Val's twins, the body under the cement, Olivia's drug addiction and Abby's intervention, Jill's shocking villainy revealed to Val...the list of great Knots moments goes on.There hasn't been a show like it on TV since. It is sorely missed.
