    Could not agree more. To me it was the equivalent of original not recognizing that JR was the break out character in making him all he became, when it came to John Ross's character. It was if Cliff, the insufferable little termite, how I felt about Chris, got way to much focus. And Daddy...

    No I'm well aware stuff happened - just not the stuff I wanted to see happen. There were no couples, no family dinners, there was no family at all it felt like to me. The pay off? Here's an example: Best scene in the series, John Ross and Sue Ellen fighting in the kitchen, she's drunk again...

    That's an excellent point. For those of us who suck around, at least for me, I kept thinking it will pay off, it'll work out. They seemed determined to not let that happen.

    Dallas 2022/3

    A warm day under the Texas sun in the garden off the side of the South Fork house, a reverend marries Bo and Amy, Aaron standing in as Bo’s best man, a young girl, Amy’s sister, standing next to her as her maid of honor, the Ewing’s watching with Jake next to Lucy and J.T. next to Aaron, and a...

    Dallas 2022/3

    Out behind the garage of South Fork, Bo and J. T. play skins against two other young guys in muscle shirts at basketball, the hot Texas sun leaving them sweating profusely, the hard play leaving them bent over breathing deeply. Ellie walks up to Lucy by the pool reading a book and says, “What’s...

    Dallas 2022/3

    Sorry should say by the start of August. My plan will be to make a post at the start of each month, or I might bump it up - maybe once every Friday evening.

    Conundrum? How else could you wrap up Dallas in it's final season?

    For me I would have happily wrapped up loose end and set up a return if only a return in the very far future. At the point of the episode before the last episode, I think they would have had to say 6 months or even 6 years later to wrap up what we've just been seeing over the last years of...

    The Ewings' biggest secret ?

    Sorry about the typos - fat fingers on a smart phone keyboard. Should have read: Bit like caging a song bird. Heart breaking. :love8:

    Miss Ellie kitchen scene

    So true. Imagine: Judith Ryland: "If you want to make a play for that grand frontier, you're gonna have to deal with us," holding John Ross's arm and looking up at him like she's his long lost momma (replace just a bit what we saw because we don't need a lovers spat but a mother and son...

    Well said. I don't know about the other two - but Angela Channing was the "focus" for Falcon Crest - yes it took everyone and yes Lance, and Chase and Maggie and Richard were all important but it was the Angela show. As for TNT Dallas I agree with you regarding John Ross - but felt the writers...

    Miss Ellie kitchen scene

    Good point. Don't get me wrong, Larry Hagman brought a good game considering what he had to work with (I think the wrong direction for his character) but he was ill. Dallas TNT's best asset was Sue Ellen Ewing (and while I wasn't thrilled she returned to drinking and would have made it very...

    The Ewings' biggest secret ?

    Not sure what a 'Sue Ellen in the attic' scenario is - but I'd never place the most beautiful woman who ever lived in the attic. But like caging a song bird. Heat breaking.

    Miss Ellie kitchen scene

    I don't think she would have done such to Gary, but yes to JR. She would have just held onto and cried with Gary, suppressing it when she needed to get it out. JR would have take it and never once tried to get away from her. She might have been better off for it - though I doubt JR would have...

    Miss Ellie kitchen scene

    I think that was the BEST scene in Dallas TNT and for Bobby to just get her out of where John Ross put her seemed to erase the impact of the scene. Unlike Miss Ellie, Sue Ellen wasn't going to keep it together and her anger was dangerous to herself (as we saw by the fire) and others. Where...

    Miss Ellie kitchen scene

    I think JR did know what to do - help his mother let it go. Gary would have helped her cry and she would have let him. JR would have ended up like the dishes and been beat on - something he'd gladly do because it was who JR was. Gary was Miss Ellie favorite and JR was Miss Ellie's go to child...
