    Southfork88, thank you for posting that pic.
    Did you all notice the lamp to the left of Bobby?
    The base of the lamp is an oil derrick.

    Thank you for posting that, Southfork88!

    If you are a behind-the-scenes geek like me, then I'll give you the cheat code for how you know this was filmed on the soundstage in California rather than on location in Texas:

    Clue number one-- look at the drapes, including on the doors. They are pulled shut. This is because if you could see inside, you wouldn't see furniture. You would see the camera parts and props stored behind there.

    Clue number two-- look at the plants behind the bicycle. They are not planted in the ground, they are stuck in pots. You wouldn't do that in Dallas, because they would keep blowing over. But you would do that on a soundstage because there is no wind to worry about.

    I love the little "tells" that nobody else probably notices. Just kind of fun.

    I Lastkidpicked,

    for me it is always easy and immediate to identify whether a scene was filmed on soundstage or in California rather than on location in Texas.

    I believe that all the most passionate fans have this ability and ... yes, all this is fun ;)

    Thank you for the pic of J.R. in his office. I escpecially like the Dallas buildings you can see through the window.

    In some of the shooting on location out in Dallas, you can see the crew struggling with the wind. Trying to keep that 80's hair under control. In J.R. Returns, Cliff has to use both hands and his body to close the door on his car due to the wind.

    To me, that's not a bad thing. It adds to the realism of the show when they are on location and can't control the wind or the lighting.

    This eagle-eyed viewer didn't require the cheat code to notice the clouds in the distance didn't move and I thought for sure I could see a seam in the back-drop.

    Wow that is a great still of JR walking the hallway upstairs. After watching TNT Dallas and comparing it to Lorimar Dallas the contrast between the two is striking. Regardless if interior shots of Southfork were largely filmed on a soundstage the writers/producers really understood how to use Southfork as a character in itself, unlike those dingbats over at TNT Dallas. I wonder if they smelt the burn stemming from forums like this criticising that woeful TNT Southfork interior. I hope the stench knocked them off their perch.

    Well, we're apparently "nutjobs" for thinking so.
