    You are right about that!
    And I hope you don't think that we are picking on the show with this thread. @Kenny Coyote is the starter of this thread and he and I (along with others) often enjoy discussing both the stronger and weaker points of Dallas. It just gives us more to talk about.

    I’m watching season 14/April’s death. Not necessarily for dramatic purposes, but April’s mom is perfectly OK with Bobby burying April in PARIS?!?!

    Something unrealistic from early in the show just popped into mind.

    Pam and Cliff grew up as ‘city kids’ in Dallas proper, at least a half hour’s drive from Southfork. Pam appeared to live in an apartment complex in the city and worked downtown at The Store. Even then, the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area was quite populous.

    How on earth did it happen that of all the tens of thousands of young men in the area, Pam ended up dating Ray Krebbs, who presumably didn’t have much chance or reason to head into the city very often? Did he meet her while shopping for fancy designer cowboy boots at The Store or something?

    Very fitting with everything else April-related: unrealistic and contrived. :re::rip:

    What about the ole skank Afton Cooper getting money from the Wentworth estate. That was just ridiculous. I would have been pissed also. Hell, Christopher should have had some kind of account set up before her.

    While we're on the subject, look at how many people with zero business experience either had shares of Ewing Oil, or actually ran Ewing Oil.
