    Wow, now that you mention it, that's exactly what he was! How much cooler would the emerald mine story have been with Guzzler instead of Cantrell??? Infinitely.

    They should have brought the Guzzler back at some point. The best time besides the emerald mine story would have been during the contest for Ewing Oil and Guzzler makes up for his three things he owed Bobby for by doing something that helps Bobby win the contest.

    Bobby loved emeralds.

    Yes, the spelling of Peedur’s name comes from John Ross’s pronunciation - that, and the fact that John Ross seemed like he was contractually required to say the name about two dozen times per episode. His obsession with his new BFF Peedur was bizarre.

    I wouldn’t have minded the Sue Ellen/Peedur storyline if they had actually hired someone a little more masculine/mature to play the role. Instead, Chris Atkins looked like he was about 16, and the whole thing seemed icky.

    I couldn’t stand Clint Ogden because I’ve never liked Monte Markham. He says all his lines out of one side of his mouth, and it’s annoying.

    I haven’t watched that season in years, but didn’t they change the college where they’d played football from UT to SMU? Preposterous! Why did they think Bobby had so much pull down in Austin? He was a star QB for the Longhorns, for god’s sake!

    (unfortunately, poor Richard Kelton tragically passed away I believe even before the Fallen Idol episode aired, and the actor absolutely made that character!)

    The one character I despised is not on the list; Jamie Ewing. I could slap that character with a wet fish back to Alaska, or wherever the hell she came from.

    the storyline said she came from Alaska, but she really came from where Three’s Company was based, probably southern California.

    How is Casey Denault missing from this list? Or Muriel?

    Casey is so meaningless that it wasn´t worthwhile. Poor Muriel deserves to be in the list of the most undervalued characters...

    No doubt about it, Mitch Cooper should have been on that list. I felt sorry for Lucy for marrying him. Leslie Stewart was a waste.

    Oh no...not Muriel. If any character deserved a makeover (where was Oprah?) it was Muriel. I wonder what she is doing these days? Actually what was her last appearance on Dallas?

    I am surprised how close the contest is at the moment, another notable absentee from the list is Tommy McKay - both actor and character were truly awful.

    Imagine if instead of appearing a few years later as Charlie's boyfriend Randy, a young Brad Pitt had played Peter. Now that would have been something else altogether!

    Mr Atkins was never going to win an Emmy, but he was the ultimate twink and rather easy on the eye at the time for this viewer (who was a mere 13 years when the eromenos in speedos was frolicking with Sue Ellen).

    Don Lockwood was transcendentally dull.

    Peter was a good looking guy with a great body, but the clothes, the clothes :scream:!
    The way they had him dressed was so....wrong. It made him look so much younger than he actually was. That added to the awkwardness of the situation.

    the high-pitched, prepubescent-sounding voice didn’t help, either
