The pregnancy-was-only-a-dream explanation in season 6

Postby Shoe Dick » Sun Mar 14, 2010 7:50 pm

What do you guys think of this explanation they used when Katey Sagal miscarried during the period of season 6? Was it a good move or could they have figured out a different way out? Do you consider everything, including the subplots that had nothing to do with the pregnancy up until the dream was over, to have been a part of the dream? I know Bud's Grandmaster B persona was a part of the dream judging by his remarks when the dream was revealed.

I think the dream exlanation is genius in a way, spoofing Dallas. On the other hand it wiped out a whole number of hilarious episodes & events from that season. The Grandmaster B stuff was some of the funniest things in all of MWC as far as I'm concerned, so it's too bad to loose those things to the "Just a dream"-solution they came up with.

Honestly, that dream sequence explanation was so short a scene I don't think it ever really comes to anyone's mind. So I don't think it really wipes anything out. When people find out I'm a huge MWC fan, sometimes that topic of Peg being pregnant comes up and people always ask me what happened. I think it was good too. Quick and painless.

This topic sure got some discussion going :)

Anyway, I was watching the first part of She's Having a Baby, and I found it ironic that these lines are said in the episode:

Peggy: Oh Al, isn't it a dream?
Al: It better be!


Turns out it was in the end. Funny coincidence :)

Everytime I watch that I'm like - Heh. Eeep. Wow. Fore-telling? Eerie. Kinda cool.

The pregnant eps are very funny, but it's a little hard to watch sometimes knowing what happened. But, they explained it away quickly (a la Dallas, as discussed in the True Hollywood Story) and didn't seem to affect the rest of the season in any way.

I watched that today actually! And i'd forgotten about that line and I just thought how ironic that was!
I think it was a good way to deal with it, there aren't many other ways that they could have delt with it, as they would have not wanted to cause any more pain for Katey Sagal.

It seems in spite of that tragedy, someone on the show still poked into the prospect of a "third" child. They brought in Seven during Season 7, which didn't last. It was the annoying Cousin Oliver-like way he was forced into the show that did him in. Katey Sagal chose to leave her next two pregnancies out of the show, though they were successful.

When Ron Leavitt and a few MwC producers re-grouped for Unhappily Ever After, the introduction of the Malloys included the elusive third child.
