The producers of the show stunned their audience by rendering the previous run of episodes as part of that dream and a key protagonist was back in his normal role.
Dallas, of course, has been resurrected and, like it or lump it, seems to have pleased old fans. who watched it religiously in the 1980s, and captured some new ones.
Imagine if the script-writers came over to Scotland? They could tell us that, in fact, Craig Whyte paid all of the PAYE tax owed to HMRC to prevent the club from going into administration and then he handed the keys of Ibrox to Charles Green and his consortium after deciding to do the honourable thing.
They might say that all of the first team players who saved their own jobs by taking pay-cuts in March and then walked out for free in the summer denying the club millions in the transfer market in fact remained with the club and pledged to aid its recovery.
Alternatively they might offer a plot line where the SPL clubs who convened to discuss an application from Sevco Scotland to allow Rangers to re-join the top flight voted for this to happen.
Well, maybe that’s taking things too far – or is it?
In a revealing interview last week, Charles Green made it clear that he and Ally McCoist are convinced that at least five top flight clubs who voted “no” were ready to vote “yes”.
The Chief Executive said he could tell by the demeanour of the club representatives in that room at Hampden on July 4 who was happy with the decision to exclude Rangers and who was not.
He firmly believes that Motherwell fell into the latter category and by definition will warmly welcome their directors tonight ahead of the Scottish Communities League Cup tie.
Fans will point out that if Motherwell were supportive of Rangers then why did they not support them? The answer, of course, is that such hysteria had been built up among supporters of all the SPL clubs that the Motherwell board no doubt felt under pressure to acquiesce to their wishes.
Given that five SPL clubs were determined to vote “no” – and we can all have a good guess who they are – and the admission application was never going to succeed due to the required 8-4 majority then why risk angering fans and potentially lose revenue?
To me it remains one of the most scandalous and unjustified decisions in the history of football legislation in Scotland and the Rangers supporters will not forget.
There were no rules in place regarding the formation of a newco and the Chief Executive of the SPL, Neil Doncaster, was on record stating there was little or no difference between exiting administration through CVA or the formation of a newco.
Perhaps in England, Neil, where the Football League happily kept Leeds United in League One when they formed a newco but not in insular, agenda-driven Scotland.
