Aside from Pam herself, I want DALLAS after Pam to turn dustier and darker (it did the opposite), to have Miss Ellie resist calling in the authorities during the range war for reasons which perplex the family -- but later turn out to be because of things Wes Parmalee whispered in Ellie's ear about what was buried out there on a section of Southfork. And after Miss Ellie dies a year before the show ends (I'd never have her permanently leave the ranch with Clayton) Ray can get wind of the fact that Parmalee had died somewhere desolate and far away, Alaska?, only weeks after Ellie passes... If you had to do Sue Ellen's movie, do the the story "straight". Lady Jessica's murder spree would be of cartel members we actually knew, most of whom had been blackmailed by Jessie who'd claimed they'd father Dusty. And the story would be done like a gothic horror movie, not facetiously. David Jacobs once suggested Miss Ellie have her own local TV talk show. Katzman would never have allowed it, but I like the idea occurring during the oil-spill/Jessie'-return season: Roy Ralston has Ellie make a few appearances on his show, and she wins over the crowd with her gentle, unpretentious humor and delicious recipes -- so much so that when Ralston takes his own show national, the local station offers the show to Miss Ellie. JR actually thinks this is a good idea until she starts pushing liberal, pro-environment causes which upset JR and the Dallas oil community at large. So JR tried to sabotage her on air. Once JR runs Cally off, Sue Ellen actually releases her movie, wreaking havoc with the Ewing family reputation. I think Susan Lucci and Barbara Eden should be the same person, if they were there at all. April doesn't marry Bobby but instead becomes his next stalker. And after Cliff goes after Michelle, Afton winds up dating and becoming engaged to Bobby. I think Bobby and Afton may have shared only one scene together, but I could see them a battle-fatigued, eleventh hour couple for the show. (Which natrually infuriates Cliff). JR and Bobby figure out Wendell was still running Weststar after all. Once Ellie dies, Clayton spills the beans and reveals Ellie believed JR to be Digger Barnes' biological son, sending JR off onto a year long rage-binge (DNA tests can undo it later, if we want to validate JR's Ewing blood). But all these stories, and the ones they actually did, can't be done as winking-at-the-camera "camp".
