    I'm torn with the match 15 because Cliff was my second favourite character on DALLAS and I would not have enjoyed the show as much if he didn't play such a fantastic role. Then we have Melisa who played another role just as important as Cliff did. I'm going to assume that Cliff will win this round, so I'm going to give Melissa my thumbs up this time.

    Match 16 is a no-brainer, Val is my favourite Ewing lady and she would have topped anyone who came up against her.




    Match 15 = Melissa Agretti
    Match 16 = Val Ewing

    Gary?!

    The world’s gone mad! ;-)

    I did consider (I’m jesting) soap chat World Cup espionage and make a bogus vote for Pam but I could see that too many were giving their sympathy vote (I’m kidding) to the underdog ;0)

    I will take comfort (or is it called irony?) that without Pamela and Dallas there would have been no Gary so she therefore is still the most important character and forerunner ;-)

    On the up side I don’t need to get up at 3 o’clock in the morning again ;-)

    Gary?!

    Don’t assume anything in this game @Ome ;-) Pamela should’ve been a shoo in

    1. Cliff - at least one Barnes family member needs to get in here. Cliff was almost as narcissistic as JR, he was an idiot and treated women terribly. He was played by a really good actor and had great chemistry with his on-screen sister :)

    2. Valene - JJ was a heartthrob but Jeff was too chauvinistic. Joan was a super actress and as others have said on here already in this contest, the final two on in the World Cup could well be the two Mrs Gary Ewing’s

    Gary?!

    Don't worry, @Victoriafan3 I felt the same way when Laura Avery was cruelly struck down in round one. The world has gone maaaaad!

    Match 15: Melissa Agretti
    Match 16: Valene Ewing

    Match 15 - This is a really difficult choice as both characters were such an integral part to the success of their respective shows. In many ways they were both underdogs who had to compete with a more powerful adversary and so their appeal is quite similar. Melissa is probably my second favourite character in Falcon Crest so I can't hardly believe I've going to do this but I'm casting my vote for Cliff. He started with very little, except his determination, and he not only became a successful lawyer and later Oil Baron but he eventually achieved his ambition of controlling Ewing Oil. The embodiment of success coming to those who never give up. My winner is Cliff Barnes

    Match 16 - This is an easier choice. I always found Jeff Colby to be bland whereas Valene was always a fascinating character. My winner is Valene Ewing.

    I'll eat my hat if Jeff wins, and of course I agree that Valene got the best drama.
    But John James said in an interview that after his last scene on Dynasty he put his suit in a closet and said "goodbye, Jeff".
    I've never heard any other soap actor saying that to his or her character, and that's why he gets my vote.

    Val just showed up at my home with a huge pair of scissors to inform me she is not "Poor Val." (Then she thanked me for my vote.)

    Valene is going to win this round, but it will be far more cruel when Abby defeats her. So, actually it was very kind of me not to vote for her, I wanted to spare her the ultimate humiliation.
    If she's going to be Poor Val it will be your doing. I'm just saying:cool1

    Well . . . bring it Abby.


    Maybe Soap Chat would like an exciting woman for a change. Maybe we don't want a mother any more who wipes it's nose every time it runs . . .

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Match 15: Cliff
    Match 16: Jeff/John James was good looking, but if I had to choose between watching him "act" and watching paint dry, Sherwin Williams would be the winner. So in this case, it is Val, breaking ranks from my favorite DYNASTY for the sake of my sanity.
