    This is another query similar to what I asked before so the answer is prob just bad writing and they didn't care anymore. But why did they not bring Lois Chiles back after Pam left? Was she not available? I'm sure viewers would've accepted Holly a lot more than April. And they changed his character from not accepting a girlfriend who slept with JR, to being ok with April, who had slept with his brother. So they could have just as easily had the same scenario with Holly. Another lost Dallas opportunity. Holly seemed more popular (and to me personally nicer, prettier and better actor) than April so why they not let bobby go out with holly once Pam had gone?

    that was so many years later. to me anyone after Pam didn't really work for the show because Pam was the whole conflict point bringing the Barnes and Ewings back together.

    funny side point on Holly. just watched the 82-83 season. When Bobby first meets her he comments that she's 'awfully young' to run an oil company. look up Lois Chiles age, and no surprise she's older than Duffy. Boy was that knee jerk sexism by the writer's.

    Nah I'm glad they put Bobby together with April as I really enjoyed their romance. :)
    Still I guess right after Pam left it would have made more sense to have him go back to Jenna, after all they did have a son together and that could have brought them back together.

    Bobby was an ass and a lost soul after Pam, how else to explain him hooking up with these ugly women and marrying a pathetic one. I didn't like Holly she was a slut besides Bobby was not into her at all. I do not think he would've gone back to Jenna(bridge under water) and he fell out of love with her anyway.

    Why did Bobby have to be with anyone after Pam? I was happy to see him end up all alone at the end. The jerk deserved to be alone after not even trying to find Pam. The woman hopping storylines were ridiculous and repetitive. It was ironic how so many women on Dallas wasted their time trying to get Bobby, when at the end of the seasons, no one got him!

    Sorry ... but Bobby Ewing is not a saint, but a man like others.

    And ... he is the brother of J.R. Ewing !

    I liked very much Kay Lloyd :)

    He became a whore-mongering lothario.....just like that no-good brother of his, banging women indiscriminately going from bed to bed as he does so.

    Well he is a Ewing & the brother of JR.

    The two of them obviously shared the same genes & they obviously got them from Jock as he had an affair with that nurse Margaret during the War & sired Ray Krebbs.

    So it all runs in the family. ;) :)

    Gary's no better. He and Val are happily ensconced in Knots Landing and the next thing you know he's dunking his sweet meet inside town harlot Abby Fairgate Cunningham. The look on his face when Val caught him at the end of the 1981-82 season was a beaut. Served the swine right.

    What seriously?? Why would you want Bobby with Holly? She's a hateful bitch. Sorry for the harshness but come on - look what she did to Sue Ellen. I don't get this fascination with her. Someone who goes out of their way to wreck a marriage? April is much prettier, nicer and popular - a good heart, unlike Holly's black one. Yuck. JUST YUCK.

    Oh she did. She told Pam that "it must have been hard to leave a man like that" when she was dating Cliff and met Bobby. But I´m sure that the thought of having a mud wrestle with Pam for Bobby´s affections made Mandy forget about it (maybe she was a tramp, but not blind).

    I'm just glad she didn't. The last thing I wanted to see was another member of the ridiculously large Bobby Ewing Fan Club!

    Bobby's romances after Pam left a lot to be desired, throwing anything at him that had a pulse and little or no acting talent!

    The worst pairing being the insipid and bland April aka SJW (still wonder what hold she had over Katzman!! say no more)
    they had zero chemistry and in no way would Bobby have touched JRs dirty/sloppy cast offs like her in earlier years of Dallas
    Oh i loved Paris!! End of insipid bland, blonde until brenda bland appeared
    if Bobby had to end up with anyone, Id take Jenna 1st love (and so wrong with Ray!) or Holly who he did have chemistry with and they worked well together in S5/6

    Once Victoria had announced she was leaving Dallas my own love affair with Dallas began to decline. I would on occasion drift in to check out what was happening with the Ewing family but I didn't seem to care as much so whether Bobby ended up with April or anyone else for that matter didn't bother me.
