Re: The All-New DALLAS!

I don't see mention of a blu-ray release anywhere and that's strange to me.

I often wonder when they'll stop producing DVD's altogether, but no blu-ray at all?

Seriously, they're getting a "meatier" role, which is cool as opposed to a quick cameo (ala Ray).

There's still rumors of an appearance by Victoria Principal. I'd love to see that happen.

Meh. I love Pam, but I'd rather they not bring her back. Victoria Principal's consistent refusal and disinterest in doing so is well known, but then again right now could be a major sleight of hand. Either way, the last we saw of Pam, she was engaged to someone else and allegedly dying.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

^ And we know soaps never try to mislead us as far as someone dying. I mean that would be cruel, right?

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Well yeah. But I'm also pointing out that Victoria Principal has shown zero interest in returning to Dallas in any form beyond the two reunion events she participated in. Yeah, people want Pam to come back, but she there's been nothing publicly to lend any credence that even if the show did want her back they could even get her. Sort of like the old "Dirk Benedict on nuBSG" situation.

Lastly, in another topic --

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

You did a massive re-watch of the series not long ago, so I'm sure you'll know this right off. Wasn't there some kind of fire or other accident that scarred Pam, she had to go in for some kind of facial reconstruction, and came out with a completely new face (as in, she was recast)? Then the "new" Pam was the one who ran off into the sunset, never to return? And didn't she have some kind of terminal cancer on top of the new face?

If that's the case, why would they bring Victoria P back, other than for nostalgia? If they were to bring the character back, why not go with the other actress?

That is assuming I'm remembering Pam's fate correctly. I may be thinking of another series entirely. Hmmm.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

You're remembering correctly.

Victoria Principal as Pam exited the series at the end of Season 9 (season 10 on the DVDs) when her car crashed into an oil tanker on the freeway.

Every time she appeared after that, she was just some extra wrapped up in bandages before Pam disappeared. Her explanation in the series for her leaving Bobby, Christopher, Cliff and the rest of the Ewings was simply that she was left horribly disfigured by the car wreck and didn't want them to see her that way - it would be easier for her to know the remembered her as she was, not as she now would be.

Not long after, Margaret Michaels showed up on the show as a love interest for Bobby, who was totally in to her because of her obvious resemblance to Pam. He had a brief affair with her but ended it because he realized it wasn't fair to Margaret Michaels' character.

About a year or so later, Cliff tries tracking Pam down, and actually finds her, this time played by Margaret Michaels (now actually playing Pam instead of her doppleganger). When they finally sit down to talk, she tells him she doesn't ever want to see him again but also that she doesn't want Cliff to tell Bobby or Christopher that he'd found her. Soon after Cliff leaves, Pam's doctor/fiance steps out of the shadows asking her why she didn't tell Cliff that she was also dying.

So, again, while soaps sure do like to pull this crap with us about killing people and then bringing them back, the ramifications on the Ewings would be huge and honestly, they did everything they could in 1988 to get rid of Pam without actually getting rid of her. And honestly, I doubt very much the writers of nuDallas would go to all the trouble of explaining all this away if they couldn't get Principal back for it, regardless of how little sense it would make to have her back after the Margaret Michaels episodes.

Great news! I'm assuming they'll ignore the fact that in the Knots universe Bobby is dead, though that fact was never mentioned on the series again anyway.

Looking forward to seeing Wersching too!

It wouldn't be too hard to do. After the dream season was aborted, Shackleford and Van Ark only ever appeared on Dallas again during its final two episodes, as alternate versions of Gary and Valene. Through the course of the series though, Gary was mentioned numerous times. In the scope of Dallas, it'd be really easy to just ignore that little bit of discontinuity.

I myself will be very interested to see if any of these new younger cast members turn out to be Bobby and Betsy, Gary and Valene's twins from Knots.

At the very least I'd love to see Gary, Valene and Lucy together in at least one scene!

Looking forward to seeing Wersching too!
Me too!

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

On GH, Duke Lavery supposedly died 20 years ago, then came back as a guy with a new face, who then died.

Now the "original" is back & the doppelganger was supposedly a fake.

Soaps

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Really, I'm not opposed to Principal coming back. I'm just not sure how they'd be able to do it. But really more importantly is the fact that she just hasn't shown any interest in coming back. So... if they can't get Victoria Principal to do it, would they bother bringing Pam back? That's the question we should be asking ourselves.
