    So we say a sad goodbye to the Ewing wives Pam and Donna, while Bobby and Lucy complete the semi final line up:

    My votes:

    Miss Ellie - It's a difficult choice but on balance Ellie was the better character. Although there was a lot of drama surrounding Sue Ellen, Ellie had more than her fair share too with her mastectomy, Wes Parmalee, Takapa, breaking Jock's will etc. She was such a vital part of the show's success providing balance and sensibilities to the battles going on around her without being bland, so edges the match with Sue Ellen.

    Bobby - Even though I can't forgive Bobby for returning from the dead, the ghastly Sheila Foley nonsense and subjecting us to years of the horror that was Jenna and Charley, I still consider him to be a more important part of Dallas than was Lucy.

    My votes:

    Match 1: Although I love Miss Ellie dearly, Sue Ellen gets my vote. Because Sue Ellen will ALWAYS get my vote. She's the undisputed Queen of Dallas and the show was never the same once she left. She was an essential ingredient and JR failed without her. She brought beauty, intrigue, a smoldering sexiness and a captivating vulnerability that made her addictive. She's been my number one lady on television since childhood and that will never change. Having said this, Miss Ellie means a lot to me and how Barbara Bel Geddes played her made her our tv Mama.

    Match 2: I have to give my vote to Bobby, despite being a fan of lil' Lucy. Bobby brings strength and comfort to the family and a soul that makes you proud to love the Ewings.

    Oh dear. If it was Lucy vs Pam or Donna vs Pam might’ve been different. This round is hard. All the characters are good. Will have to ponder this one. Lol. Either way I feel like I’m letting down Sarah or Barbara Fan, rather than Sue Ellen or Miss Ellie. Sigh

    Easy one for me, still cant believe ol JR got voted off so soon, he was Dallas!!

    Match 1 - Momma, Miss Ellie and only the BBG version of it, (the porcelain dog would have got my vote if it was Robot Ellie)
    She mini - s6 and s8 -12 was the heart and the soul of the show and its best actor - when she wasnt there something was missing, lacking and Lorimar underestimated just how necessary she was to Dallas when she wasnt there.

    Match 2 - It has to be Bobby - but its a Bobby from mini series to S9 original, not the Bobby that followed with him sleeping with tacky women and JR cast offs, also disliked TNT Bobby immensely

    Bobby was more essential to Dallas than Lucy and Pat D a better actor. He was also (Bobby Ewing) the man of my dreams as a teenager and I did get to kiss him on Aug 26th at 2.35 pm, that may go on my grave stone lol

    1. Miss Ellie
    I got more entertainment out of Sue Ellen but she's too strong as a competitor and she would definitely defeat Lucy.

    2. Lucy
    Because I want a female true blood Ewing to win, and Lucy is the only one (and Jamie and Margaret and Betsy too but they're not competing in this game).

    Match 1: Miss Ellie, the emotional centre of the show.
    Match 2: Bobby, the emotional centre of the next generation.

    Match 1: Sue Ellen. My head said Miss Ellie but my heart said Sue Ellen and so shall it be. Sue Ellen for most of Dallas was always in the thick of it. Partner of the dynamic duo.

    Match 2: Bobby. Sorry Lucy but I'm still scratching my head how you managed to topple my Pam. Just go away already :)

    Lucy's popularity has been one of the biggest mysteries surprises of this contest for me.

    Aha.

    Miss Ellie

    BBG is the finest actor on the show for me. Even if that hadn't been the case, I'd throw her a vote here because Sue Ellen always wins these things anyway.

    Charlene Tilton's hammy fake shock in Bring Back Dallas shattered any remaining illusion I may have had that it wasn't scripted. I've never quite been able to get past that.

    Sue Ellen got off lightly. She can be grateful JR talked Ellie out of Plan A:
