I've always thought a core mistake was the dumping of the reunion movies. I would have built on that and kept Sue Ellen in business. She had shown...
Yes, I liked her, too. I was disappointed when they wrote her out.
I wouldn't call Abby greedy so much as insecure. As you've suggested, the Ewings, Carringtons and Giobertis all had established wealth. Abby was...
I agree that he should have been included as a consultant but it would have been impractical for him to be the full time showrunner.

I read that Cidre always had a contingency to deal with that situation so I don't think so, but perhaps it was a case of tunnel-vision.
As a practical matter, I doubt that there would be enough unused footage to put together but maybe they could have kept him alive offscreen,...
I can see them doing it, though.
Baffling contradictions and all, they're all real to me, but if I had to make a choice I'd pick the movies.
Isn't that pretty much what happened with Steven on Dynasty?
Only if you assume that it was expected that the actors would return; it was not. In my opinion, replacing BBG was the right call, although...
I think there have already been a number of shows that have tried that but maybe one will eventually strike oil (so to speak). I would still...
Do you mean new characters or new actors playing the old characters?
Thanks for posting that link. That interview appears to be the source for much of the information that I've only seen piecemeal up until now.
