    U- Many Dallas fans were (and still are) uneasy that James Beaumont appeared as JR's long lost eldest son in 1989. After twelve seasons that's understandable.

    V - I liked the idea of James - JR's son, and the way he was introduced. I wasn't a fan of Vanessa's...too much sappiness in the character..."I did love you, JR"..."You were the love of my life, JR". Good actress, flat role. Character James brought a lot of tension...opinions differ as to how well it all played out. I'm not including ratings as an evaluative tool, as audience tastes were changing at the time.

    The old Dallas, things developed slowly, simmered, and built into something that had an impact, like building winning games out of singles and doubles. These newer seasons' story lines developed, crashed and burned too quickly to matter much, in my book, like trying to win with only home-runs, of which there weren't many.

    X - JR usually enjoyed his meetings with Rattigan, especially if the meeting places were XXX.

    C- Clouds
    Here is an exact quote from one of the summaries of a Dallas episode:

    Pam and Mark's future clouds over after she receives some tragic news.

    Bwhahahahaha! I don't mean to laugh, but the news was HIS PLANE EXPLODED IN MID AIR! Yes, I would say that clouds their future together.

    F - Not sure if the Fashion statements made were true to the times or not. They were a bit...over the top sometimes, like the Cowboy's linebacker pictured below, and those god-awful things above. I could imagine the ears resting on the shoulders after a few years of wearing those Liz Tayler Cleopatra ear restraints.

    G - I suppose it's possible Sue Ellen sprouted gigantic shoulders after a couple of aerobics sessions with Pam and some goofy attempts at 'weightlifting' in the Southfork gym that appeared out of nowhere one season, but it's fairly unlikely, I'd say.

    I - it’s hard to believe anyone could think Pam would go for an irritating imbecile like the bumbling Joe Don Ford

    (well, actually it’s in keeping with Cliff’s wildly self-centered outlook in those days. He wouldn’t have had any clue about what someone else actually wanted)

    K - Alias "Joe Don Ford" showed up from "EMERGENCY!", a show I never watched because of the cast. I fast forward his DALLAS scenes 'ceptin' when he gets Knocked into Pam's Westlake pool.

    M - the dynamic Eric Farlow’s masterful ability to remain indifferent to his surroundings allowed the viewer to concentrate on the the confrontation between the two rivals for Pam’s affection
