    I'm glad someone else enjoyed the presence of Alexis Smith. My only wish was the writers/producers had given her a slow burn story arc, potentially spanning a full season. I thought she was that good.

    Of course! I don't even consider TNT Dallas to be Dallas. The name Dallas was used just to try to get more viewers. They had no understanding of what made the original Dallas great!

    Agreed. "JR Returns" goes along way to redeeming "Conundrum" IMO.

    How exciting that Miss Ellie won. It was kind of unexpected, but what a fabulous soap twist!

    Ellie the DALLAS mama is a worthy winner. Angela, thanks for initiating this thread and thrusting it along. The input from the FALCON CREST characters provided an extra bit of fun, at the end. The last great year of DALLAS will always IMHO be season 9 (DVD-10). It is very unfortunate when the core cast of a long running show begin to dwindle.

    Of course there are a few reasons why this happens; the actor wants to leave of their own accord, stories / plots are not plentiful for them i.e. they are relieved of their duties, behind the scenes string pulling could be at work or the big B word, budget could be the main factor. In any event there were still elements of the Texas show I enjoyed from autumn 1987 on. If you were to compare with oil activity though the gushing days were few and far between.


    Cliff arrives at Dallas Memorial Hospital, to see Pam after the explosive collision. The resident blonde bomb shell in town April comforts him, (a scene from season 10, DVD-11, 1987-’88):

    Cliff: “Bobby. Pam. They say anything about Pam?”

    Bobby: “No nothing yet! Hello April.”

    April: “Hi Bobby. I’m really sorry!”

    Surgeon: “Mr. Ewing, Mr. Barnes. I have arranged for you both to go in and see Mrs. Ewing.”

    Cliff: “That’s great. That’s’ terrific! At least she’ll know somebody is rooting for her.”

    Surgeon: “I’m afraid she even won’t know you’re here. She’s in a semi conscious state and if she wanted to say anything she couldn’t. There could be considerable smoke damage to her larynx.”

    Cliff: “Is that permanent?”

    Surgeon: “We don’t know yet but that is the least of our worries now. Come with me, gentlemen and the nurse will get you into some gowns.”

    The mummified Pam lies in wait, as her husband and brother look on!
