    I have finally got round to buying Petrochelli S1 and 2 which i always liked as a child and long before Susan Howard playd Donna in Dallas. (Thanks @Ray&Donna - finally came down in price!)
    At the time I didnt know the name Leonard Katzman - who wrote, directed and or produced Petrochelli.

    As time goes on and Ive watched more episodes its easy to see where / how the Dallas epiodes were named

    we have on Petrochelli
    Act of love
    Fallen Idol
    The kidnapping
    The Outsiders
    Mark of Cain
    Survival
    Night visitor
    Shadow of a doubt

    Not to mention a whole host of Dallas Character actors - Im loving it and poor Maggie aka Susan Howard,
    At least Ray finished the house he was building, Tony Petrochelli lays about 3 bricks / episode x

    Dallas should have gotten Barry Newman to play Andrew Dowling or another character to whisk Donna to DC.

    Agree, he would have been a great addition to the show. I was happy to see Barry Newman in NYPD Blue, early on, a good actor, always wonder what he is doing now, muct be in his early 80s I would think.

    Had Tony been building the house out of root beer bottles, he likely would have finished! :D

    Some of those are fairly standard phrases that have been used as titles in a lot of places.

    Donna Mills guest starred in a two-part episode of GUNSMOKE with two titles for the price of one: "A Game of Death...an Act of Love"

    Ive just ordered a book on Petrochelli, loving seeing so many Dallas supporting cast appear in the show and Jordan Lee is a fair judge!

    Absolutely-- I've seen that second-and-final-season premiere "Death Ride" many a time lately, and Judge Manners (I think that's the name of the judge that Don Starr [the actor] played) was indeed quite tough, but also very fair, applying courtroom procedure equally to both sides (first admonishing the defendant character Gage Hurley [Ned Beatty] for courtroom disruption, then doing the same to prosecutor Frank Kaiser [Michael Bell] for instigation of such disruption by the form of questioning the prosecutor was using [owing to Petrocelli's pointing it out in his apology for Hurley's disruption]).

    I have the series and the book too, but I have them in different forms than you have; you got the series in the German single releases, and the book in paperback; I have the series in the Canadian all-in-one from VEI (Toronto-based DVD label), and the book in hardback.
