    Yes you thought it had gone away but it's back!!! My feeling is that the TWO MILLION views the original had for this delicious duo blew the site! Chemistry like no other - my (ok our) fab JR and Sue Ellen.

    Let's go for a cool FOUR MILLION this time :) Take it away gang!

    Yay! It's back! :spinning:
    This thread means so much to me.

    Who could have guessed in 2004 when this swoonalicious photo was first posted by surfergirl:

    SueEllenJRyummy.jpg

    that it would spark over 100 000 posts?

    Okay to get a conversation going. I am asking all JR/SE fans which moment it was that you became hooked on their story?

    For me it was this moment:

    uvs160916-001.jpg

    When Sue Ellen visited JR at the hospital after he had been shot.

    uvs160916-002.jpg
    uvs160916-003.jpg
    uvs160916-004.jpg

    I loved how this event brought them back together and made them reconcile. In the episodes that followed they seemed genuinely happy together for the first time since the show began and that made me hooked on their story. :)

    Take care,
    Love:
    Karin.

    Thanks for those lovely photos. I love that season when they are divorced and he is courting her. It's so sweet how he keeps giving her the yellow roses all the time. On a sidenote, I read in Kristina Hagman's book about her dad that Larry also had a preference for giving people yellow roses! :)

    Also I think Sue Ellen had such a lovely hair-do in that season.

    Finally here's another photo:

    For me it was around the time of Jock's death and the welcome home BBQ. I was very young but I saw something there - a real spark in how he looked at her and how she looked at him. I was hooked from then on. I had never seen a couple with more chemistry - and haven't since. They are dynamite together.

    PS I gave Larry yellow roses and he loved them :) He hugged me and said 'thank you Darlin' :) and gave me some fake money :)

    Aww, I totally get what you mean Sarah. Their chemistry was amazing and the way they looked at each other at the BBQ was electric. Here's some screencaps for you from that event :)

    uvs160920-001.jpg

    uvs160920-002.jpg

    uvs160920-003.jpg

    uvs160920-004.jpg



    It totally looked like they were going to kiss before Sue Ellen broke free from his spell and walked away...

    So cute how you gave Larry the yellow roses. :)

    Larry_0016m.jpg


    Also gotta love how he tossed those fake dollar bills around. I remember at Wogan he tossed some into the audience and some fans got into a fight over them!

    I do too @Sarah . Dallas was never the same without Larry and like @Barbara Fan has often pointed out. The world is a duller place without Larry!
    He was so nice to his fans. I feel blessed that I was able to meet him. I'll treasure those memories forever. :)

    Btw. I think it was so sweet at Southfork when Larry told us fans that we made him feel like a rockstar that evening and then the audience started chanting his name. "Larry! Larry! Larry"

    uvs160920-005.jpg


    It's strange to think of that it's soon been 8 years ago. I remember there was such excitement on the board leading up to that event with the count down clock and all. That fall with fansource and SF BBQ sure was an exciting time to be a Dallas fan. :)

    One of my favourite scenes is this one - she has dropped all her defences and comes to him, willingly. I've watched this scene over and over because the words that they use and the things that they say to each other are for the first time in a long time, deeply honest. The love that they have for each other is so obvious here. What does anyone else think?

    Oh I love that scene too. I think the fact that she's come close to losing him and how he risked his life to save John Ross has made them realize just how much they actually love each other.

    Over all I think there was something sensual about JR/SE that season. Maybe it was in their way of looking at each other combined with their way of touching. Like for instance in the scene you mentioned he kissed her hand:

    uvs160930-019.jpg
    uvs160930-020.jpg


    I love little details like that.

    Also here's yet another scene from that season that I love since it's so bittersweet and tender:

    uvs160930-012.jpg


    BD Calhoun is threatening their family and JR feels protective of his son. Unbeknownst to him Sue Ellen is standing in the door watching the tender scene and is reminded what a good father JR is.

    uvs160930-013.jpg

    JR realizes that Sue Ellen is watching him...
    uvs160930-014.jpg

    She notice it...

    uvs160930-015.jpg

    Once out in the hallway she tells him something like:
    "I'd forgotten what a wonderful father you are. Too bad you couldn't be a better husband..."

    uvs160930-017.jpg


    He tells her "it's been a long time since you let me try..."

    uvs160930-016.jpg

    She tells him: "I'm not talking about spending the night together..."

    uvs160930-018.jpg

    "I'm talking about a lifetime."


    So do you have any other favorite scenes from this season?
    Or is your favorite JR/SE scene from another season? If so which one is it?



    Jennifer, I am glad that you love the photos. But how about joining in the discussion too?
    Since I'm sure you must have an opinion about JR/SE and what made you love them. So why don't you tell us?

    Okay that's all for now,

    Take care,
    Love:
    Karin.

    Hi again,

    I've updated the JR/SE video I made to the song "Forever Tonight" with better quality clips and thought I'd share it here as the video is dedicated to the original swooners who used to post in this thread in between 2004-2008. It's a total fluff video so I hope you'll enjoy it:



    That's all for now,
    Take care,
    Love:
    Karin

    Thank you Sanda for the feedback on my video. :)
    Also that's a great season you chose for JR/SE. Here's a couple of caps from your favorite JR/SE scene:

    uvs161010-001.jpg
    uvs161010-002.jpg
    He tells her it's been 14 years since they first met...

    uvs161010-006.jpg

    uvs161010-005.jpg

    uvs161010-008.jpg

    uvs161010-009.jpg

    uvs161010-010.jpg

    uvs161010-011.jpg

    uvs161010-012.jpg

    uvs161010-013.jpg




    I really love this scene too. It's romantic somehow. :)

    Take care,
    Love:
    Karin.

    Thanks, I figured I'd repost a couple of screencaps from JR Returns that I had posted before the board went down. Also while on the topic of JR Returns, did you think that JR/SE would reconcile prior to watching it?

    I didn't. I had read some press about JR Returns prior to watching it so I knew JR would fake his own death. The press sure knew how to spoil things! lol
    But well at least they hadn't spoiled the JR/SE plot so it was a happy surprise. I was so glad to see them reunite and I loved the whole movie really. :)

    Anyway here's the screencaps:

    uvs160713-001.jpg

    uvs160713-002.jpg

    uvs160713-003.jpg

    uvs160713-004.jpg

    uvs160713-005.jpg
    uvs160713-007.jpg
    uvs160713-006.jpg


    Aww! I really think JR & Sue Ellen should have stayed together after this!

    That's all for now,
    Love:
    Karin.
