Discussion in 'Dallas - The Original Series' started by Sarah, Sep 16, 2016.
Yeah hit by a bus while talking about her love for Linda Gray. That should go on my tombstone.
Oh and here's the front covers of four different Swedish TV Guides from August 2012:
Classic Soap Opera Returns
The Old Classic TV show Dallas is back in a new and more youthful format. But several of the original actors such as Larry Hagman is in it again.
Monday 9 p.m. on TV4
Unfaithfulness, oil and family feud
Hot intrigues in Dallas.
All the advertising totally paid off since 1,4 million viewers tuned in to watch the first episode of the new Dallas here in Sweden.
If you think 1,4 millions doesn't sound like much you need to put in the context of that Sweden has a population of approx. 10 million people.
So that means that about 14 % or 1 out of 10 in the entire country tuned in to watch Dallas. It was in fact the highest rating that a foreign show had
ever gotten in TV4 20 year history!
So yeah the Swedish viewers were more than ready to welcome the Ewing family back into our lives again. Heck I think a lot of people had even missed them.
Karin, I love the Swedish TV Guide magazine covers you posted of TNT's Dallas!
Aw. They make my Ovaltine boil
I'm glad you enjoyed the covers. Here's a screencap of that silly love tree:
Today is Larry's birthday so I figured I'd repost some magazine scans to honor his memory.
Larry and Maj
Larry with his son
Larry with his daughter
Larry plays with his granddaughters
With Maj again...
That's all for now but I hope you'll like the photos.
OK so THIS SCENE:
Been thinking about it a lot recently (as we probably all do from time to time I mean let's face it.... )
I'm wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this evening...did JR drive to this event? Did they take a limo? What was the build up to the Blue Sheet scene like from they arrived back in the Southfork driveway....
Good questions @Sarah. I guess what you are wondering about is what happened in between the blue sheet scene and this scene:
I must admit I haven't really given it much thought. Maybe it's because I was surprised about that very hot love scene that remains one of the hottest ones I've seen on TV until this day. For some reason I find it much sexier what's implied (nakedness under the sheets) than seeing a bunch of good looking people in bed in their underwears like we seemed to see all the time on the new Dallas.
Oh well since you bring it up my guess is that they probably took a limo to the event and for some reason I can imagine them doing a bit of kissing in the backseat on the way home...
Anyway since you seem to have given it a lot of thought so why don't you write a one shot about what you imagine happened?
I've been going through old board threads that I've saved on my computer and in it I've found a lot of beautiful banners made by other fans some 10 years ago, give or take a few years. So well I thought I'd repost them here since they all appeared in the original swoon thread as signature photos underneath each post by a member. So enjoy these and the nostalgia and in case you recognize anything as yours please tell us so!
This one was MsTexas73:
Finally this one was mine:
I remember someone asked me if the middle couple was supposed to be Jock and Ellie. It would have made sense but no it's Buffy & Angel because I was still nuts about them when I first joined this forum in 2004.
Oh Good grief. Throw water over me.
There's even more...
Karin Schill, These are SOOOOOOOOOO amazing!!!!! Thanks!!!!!
You're welcome Alexia.
Here's some more:
and finally three screenshot from the 2004 reunion that we originally discussed in this thread:
I really do miss the days when Larry was still alive and we got new Larry & Linda photos quite often. I remember there was always such excitement whenever they'd made a new appearance at some event and we were all talking about it. I can't help but wishing that the new Dallas would have been launched a year or two earlier as then I'm sure we would have been able to see JR/SE reunite properly on the show. In a way Larry's untimely death really killed the hype surrounding the new show since after that it was never the same again. But at least I am glad that Larry got to go out on top. He got to work again with his friends, portraying a character that was fun for him. So I am still glad the Dallas TNT show happened even if it's great potential was never fulfilled.
Great pictures Karin.
Amazing pictures Karin Schill!!!!
Here's some more old banners from the original soapchat:
Great banners!! Thanks for posting them Karin Schill!
Karin, I love all of the old JR and Sue Ellen banners you are re posting for us from the Original Soap Chat forum. I miss the Original Soap Chat forum.
Great banners Karin.
