    Yes. Sue Ellen never had better chemistry with anyone else.


    I think that Clayton wouldn't have been brought onto the scene has they not need a substitute/replacement for Jock. While they ultimately filled different roles, it can't be overlooked that Howard Keel was added to the show as Jim Davis' decline became more visible onscreen. Some of the continuity errors are hilarious in hindsight; by the end of the series, Bobby had been born in no less than three different years!

    I've been used to the crappy-looking Seasons 10, 11, and 12 for so long, that the (probably mediocre) quality of the Season 3 picture has me exclaiming in awe of how great it is!

    No, as Marky has explained numerous times, even the grainy film looks much better compared to the later edited-on-video seasons--the technique for which really was only refined for the final two years of the show. 10, 11, and 12 all had at least one crappy-looking, washed-out, green-hued episode when they aired on SOAPnet.

    I just finished Dallas TNT series, but it's been a long time since I've seen the original seasons of Dallas (1978) on DVD, but now that the 40th anniversary of Dallas is coming up in April, it seems to me a nice moment again to rewatch Dallas again from the very beginning. :)

    It's exactly what I plan to do with friends and family. As we sit around on bales of hay and gaze in wonderment at a pit fire albeit briefly Dallas will be shown on the big screen. Bring on the 2 April :)

    Friends is also a tv-show that has been a very long time ago that I've seen that on TV and DVD's, so who knows, I'm going to re-watch Friends after Dallas. :)

    Sorry, his treatment of her was far too heinous for me to ever view their relationship as "hot". Sue Ellen and Dusty, on the other hand...:love6:

    I love you too, but totally disagree. When JR and Sue Ellen were together, or even when they were apart - the flames and chemistry were out of this world!!!

    I guess you wouldn't call it "hot", but one of my favorite J.R. and Sue Ellen moments is when J.R. is watching old movies of Sue Ellen in the beauty contest.

    Larry Hagman did a great job of expressing, "Wow! How good things were back then. . . And how they can never recapture those times."
