    I just finished the episode in which Miss Ellie gets the phone call. My grandparents remember Jim Davis from, not only DALLAS, but many western appearances he made. Great actor and he is very missed.

    I couldn't agree more. No one on earth was suited better for the role of Jock than Jim Davis. It was sad watching season 5 and not see Jock, knowing that Jim is dead .

    It was so sad that Jim Davis didn't live longer to reap the benefits of the well-deserved fame that had finally come his way during Dallas. He stamped his own indelible mark on the role that no other actor could have done. The fact that he did so in a way that ensured Jock Ewing's character was integral throughout the entire 13 years of Dallas' run.

    I salute the memory of an iconic Dallas figure.

    I wasn't insanely in love with Jock the first time I watched, but re-watching on DVD he is absolutely amazing. The way he talks, that perma-frown, the way he interacts with everyone is just amazing. This is one of the best casting jobs in all of Dallas, maybe even the best. It's going to be so sad once I read his final episodes. :(

    Sarah, great idea to acknowledge the late Jim Davis on his birthday rather than only on the day he passed. How great that he found such success during his twilight years.

    Because of Jim's presence, I still enjoy the early years much more than those that came after.

    Jim, you were so cool, and made Dallas feel 'real'. You were such a talented actor and you lit up every scene. :)

    I think my favourite line ever, of yours is;

    "I'm mad as hell boy!!" :D

    Rest in peace Big Jock.(l)
