Quite simply, the show was just the best. Everything gelled & worked. The cast, the writing, the music & the villain we all loved to hate, Larry Hagman as JR Ewing. For me though it wasn't just Larry who made me tune in to watch, Victoria Principal & Patrick Duffy had a big effect on me. I especially missed Victoria when she left. You can't have Dallas without Victoria Principal & Larry Hagman because both their characters are crucial to Dallas.
