A retconning we shall go!

A short time back I talked about how the syndicated strip For Better or Worse went into some sort of odd retcon mode. well, base on my reading of that strip, I couldn’t help myself but to construct a Spider-Man strip that dealt with the same subject.

I present that strip here.

Oh, in case you don’t recognize him, the guy in the shower is Patrick Duffy, who came back from the dead a year after he left Dallas, because the writers of the show reached a wall with stories, and needed him back, so they decided that the previous year’s worth of stories were all “Imaginary.”

Sound familiar?

Family Guy used the scene for one of its episodes some time back.

I first learned of this infamous sequence in Dallas via one of VH1's decade lookbacks.

Oh man, the Dallas retcon. The show never recovered from that one. Biggest "what the eff" moment of all-time.
