    And they'll make sure all the backstory details are completely consistent with seasons 8 & 9.

    Also, maybe while skimming through random episodes of season 8 she will spot Samantha Ross and assume Melissa is still alive.

    It worked for Dallas and Knots Landing only because of the Ewing connection. Having any character from either Dallas and Falcon Crest appearing on each others series I think would have made a mockery on each show. I see why the producers would have went for it - think ratings - but what would be the point of a one off special episode. A story arc would be required to benefit both.

    I'm also reminded of the talented Dame Joan Collins. The Colby's was another spin off but she refused to appear on it as it would weaken both series. Am I right?

    I don't know if that was the real reason, but it was the right decision.
    Just because it's a spin off doesn't mean that all the characters have to mix and mingle. There has to be a level of exclusivity.

    Actually... Warner Bros does own Lorimar, so it'd be prime for a reboot on CW! Please let it happen television gods!!!!!!
