    I like your ideas, Rove! :) The writers and producers had the chance to do just that after Bobby's death, but blew it big time! :( The storylines in the dream season were overall boring (with Ray/Donna being the exception). Thus, it would have been better to have ended Dallas sooner, IMO! ;)

    When those first numbers (U.S. ratings) came in after the first screening of TNT Dallas everyone involved must have breathed a sigh of relief. Imagine their horror as half the number of people returned to watch the following episode and from that point the numbers kept slipping. Interesting that so-called experts in their chosen field believe they understand what the viewer wants. How wrong they were. And where are those people responsible for the screw up that was TNT Dallas? Probably still working in the industry.

    As much as I'd love to see a fitting and final episode of Dallas (preferably a tele-movie) I'd be paranoid they'd ask the same people responsible for the mess they created and left behind.

    I love Linda, she's 76 and looks smashing. Although I will say I'm a bit disappointed in both of them after reading Larry's daughter's autobiography. But then again, I think Patrick help ruin the show so with him, I can't even be bothered. But I would always to be thrilled to see Linda Gray anywhere, anytime. I'll never stop loving her.

    Thanks for sharing the great pictures! :clap::clap::clap:

    I do hope that both Linda and Patrick will look more glamorous tomorrow night! While I totally love Linda's hair and makeup in the photos, her outfit isn't quite "right", IMO! ;) Patrick looks like he just jumped off a hay ride (both outfit and shoes ... :hats:... LOL). Also, he could use a good shave! :think:

    Linda and Patrick look like they're really enjoying themselves! I can't wait to hear more about tomorrow night's event in Dallas! :spinning:

    Thanks for sharing Tina. I enjoyed watching both interviews. It was nice to see something new with Linda and Patrick. :)

    I wish they'd stop complimenting CC on her pilot script though since as the ratings proved she could not really write Dallas! :(
    It's sort of funny how all the fans know that the reason the show failed was because of the writing and yet the stars are still clueless.

    Cut Patrick some slack on his appearance Ms Southworth, I mean the man just lost his wife less than 3 months ago. :(
    So considering it's good to see that he's back to work and that he hasn't lost his sense of humour.

    Me too look forward to hear more about this event later this week.

    I really hope tonight goes well and isn't spoiled by the antics of the stalker who has blighted at least 3 events now that Linda has been at. Hopefully security will be in place to reign this person in.

    I think they both look great - I wouldn't actually care if they came on stage naked.

    I don't think they are clueless @Karin Schill - I think they were just trying to stay positive about the project.

    Yeah, it makes no sense to keep praising TNT Dallas, when a large percentage of the longtime and faithful Dallas fans disapprove! :yep: I guess that LG and PD somehow could have been sworn to "secrecy" or to NOT say anything negative about TNT Dallas, but then again .... naaahhhhh :(

    LOL ... :giggle: ... Chill just a tad, Karin! ... :giggle: ... I just said what a lot of people were thinking! PD didn't (and maybe didn't want to) look like the sex symbol that he always has been known as, which is quite understandable under the circumstances! :) But as my mom would say ... always dress appropriately and make sure that you're presentable according to the event that you are attending! :cooler: I love PD, his work and life accomplishments and thus only wish the very best for him ... also in the years to come! :)
