    Actually Chamberlain is only 5 years older than Ron Rifkin, who plays Saul. (Just checked IMDb)

That was the impression that I got. I think all the kids are at the same school right now (for what I'm assuming in 5th grade) and the school that Sarah wanted to get Cooper in to was for 6th grade (and presumably through high school).
    But why would the dads do that unless their kids went there? Well, I guess it could be older siblings... Also, Sarah said there were only 5 opening each year at the 6th grade level...implying some kids had been there since first grade, no?
    Aw. well, logic, not a strong point in this show... Still like a lot of the characters... Scotty is still a sweetie pie if a bit saintly.

    Richard Chamberlain!!! WOW! I thought Stephen Collins would be fabulous as Saul's lover but I can't believe they selected Richard Chamberlain. I had a HUGE crush on him when I was in high school and college.

    The Thorn Birds aired in the Spring of 1983 or 1984 (I'm too lazy to actually look it up but I'm thinking 1984). Somewhere, I still have the Richard Chamberlain autographed handkerchief he sent to my softball team after we sent a fan letter. We were stuck at school during spring break for practice and watched the Thorn Birds together every night.

    I'm looking forward to seeing him again. He seems like he might be a good fit with Ron.

    I remember he was on an episode of Desperate Housewives a few years ago, where he played Lynette's mother's gay ex-husband. He's still got it.

    So, what's up with Scotty's confession of infidelity? That threw me for a loop.

    I figured it had happened by the way they kept hinting around at not having "relations" for more than 3 weeks is a sign that someone is cheating in the relationship. I hope they can work through it.

    I think they had to do something to make Scotty less angelic. The actor was probably getting bored by just smiling and making everyone else feel better.

    I've been wondering what ever happened to the lake, and the 55 million dollars the Walker family was going to get. Did I miss an episode?

    I'm assuming the sale is still in progress. Hopefully they will tie that storyline up soon.
