    I am watching season one again many years after I first watched. What the heck was wrong with Lindsay? Was it parental neglect with her mother being the hospital and her father overseas? She makes Lindsay Lohan at the peak of her fame seem well-adjusted.

    She had her "oh my god, that's my mother"-moment before Fallon did.

    Well try to imagine what Claudia was like before she was put into hospital. The child must have had a fair bit of trauma. So then her mother is put in the nuthouse and her father just goes overseas to work. Leaving her with her grandmother. Obviously Mathew had to do that to pay for his family and to pay for the treatment of his wife but that's not how young Lindsay would have seen it. She likely had all kinds of abandonment issues and feelings of insecurity and fear about her future.

    I’d love to see have seen Lindsay shave her head and attack everyone with an umbrella long before Brittany Spears did!

    I thank that maybe because it’s the new century and millennium we cannot fully appreciate the time in which Lindsay lived. Being illegitimate was, I suppose, quite a huge scandal at that time.

    I think she came back in Season 10, like Ingrid Bergman in THE VISIT.

    I want the introduction of a new mysterious character with a new mysterious background and a storyline for Lindsay's comeback, maybe as Denver's high society slasher aka The Denver Umbrella Murders.
    So, imo, they are not the same person.

    How could you include Joel Fabiani and Gayle Hunnicutt and Sasha Mitchell and forget Andrew Stevens?

    If Alexis hadn't killed Krystle's baby, it would have come out a bastard.
    Ah, them family moments with Alexis never letting Krystle hear the end of it. She maybe did Krystle a favor, after all.

    First seeing season 1, I couldn't figure out the big deal of being born out of wedlock. After that she always gets on my nerves when revisiting season 1.

    I agree completely with all that--the backstory was set up perfectly for Lindsay to have issues. But the way she was written and acted was all wrong--with apologies to @James from London who seems to like her. It was just over the top in a show that did not do over the top (not until season 2 anyway).

    I think that, while overall the Shapiros did a superb job writing the pilot and creating the plots and characters of season 1, Lindsay was a mental leftover from their 70s career of made-for-TV after school special type movies, like "Sarah T Portrait Of A Teenage Alcoholic," which Esther Shapiro is quite proud of and has mentioned it repeatedly. FYI, the whole movies is currently available on YouTube and it has quite the pedigree, from Richard Donner directing, to Linda Blair, Mark Hamill (pre-Star Wars) and ...wait for it...Larry Hagman starring. So many things about Lindsay's story and reactions are like a didactic movie for teens unlike the sophisticated drama the rest of the show is. Even Claudia and Matthew are characters with too many facets and dimensions to be credible as parents for crudely put together Lindsay.

    Maybe they finally could've found Leslie's corpse in season 10 and for it to be revealed at her funeral that she and Lindsay had a passionate affair.

    Am I correct in my recollection that Lindsay was presumed eaten by the jungle animals along with Matthew. I remember that seeing somewhat camp but not appreciating it at the time. Of course Matthew was apparently excreted from the tail end of a jaguar and patched back together by a previously unknown tribe who specialized in lobotomies
