    For me, this week's matches are easy choices:

    Match 9 - Sue Ellen Ewing - I really like Flamingo Road but Fielding Carlyle was one of the more boring characters in it. By contrast, Sue Ellen was always fascinating (except maybe when she was with Don Lockwood) so she is my winner.

    Match 10 - Lance Cumson - I'm sorry but Jason was dull, he may have been played by a Hollywood legend but the character was straight from Yawnsville Arizona. Lance on the other hand was always interesting, even when he was with the "Babylonia Woman" so he's my choice to win.

    1. Fielding Carlyle (he was my favourite character on FR)
    2. Jason Colby (because Lance gets enough worship as it is)

    I'm glad Fielding is getting some love on this thread even though Lute Mae was my favourite Flamingo Road character, followed by Titus.

    I found her bit bland. Her only interesting part was being Constance's biological mother, maybe that's why they mentioned it over and over again.
    Stella Stevens is a good actress for shows like The Love Boat, but I wouldn't cast her in a soap series.

    My second favourite was Eudora Weldon because she was so Southern and melodramatic in everything she did.

    Match 9 - Sue Ellen: this match is a no brainer for me. Sue Ellen is one of my favourite characters out of all the 80's soaps. This brief synopsis from an article in Sabotage Times, sums up why wet rag Fielding is no match for the Queen of Dallas

    "Sue Ellen doesn't just argue, she throws bottles, she gets arrested, she punches JR in the face, she wears backless, black sequinned trouser suits whilst punching JR in the face and she has affairs with cowboys who lose their willies in rodeo accidents, or something. All this, and she's really good looking. Sue Ellen is fallible. Gets committed? Sure she does. Pregnant and hammered in the driving seat? Tick. Last 12 hours a blank? Think you might have shot your husband? Sue Ellen makes us all feel ok about being human. So, for all the girls out there who feel under-represented by the current crop of cultural icons, for all the ladies who have woken up in an alley and got shitfaced with a bag lady, let us remember Sue Ellen Ewing".

    Match 10 - Jason Colby: I've mentioned previously that I've never been that invested in Falcon Crest so I don't know a great deal about Lance bar the fact that he looks good in a Speedo and shagged lots of women. Jason was a bit dull and a bit of a dick but he was great alongside Sable so my vote goes to him.
