Just a bit. And damn, Cliff is cold. Blowing up the rig with his own pregnant daughter on it.
And when she gets wind of what her dad did, she'll defect to the Ewings.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

I have to wonder if Ryland is going to hide his mother's body, or try and pin her death on Anne or the Ewings.

I hope she's not dead. She was such a great character.

Of course. That was the only way to go at that point. They couldn't argue at the top of those beautiful stairs and not have somebody go down them!

And Mitch Pileggi's in the opening credits. Obvious choice.

It's television. Falling down stairs is 99% fatal.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

she could just be maimed and unable to talk. Then she could spend the season glaring at Ryland and he could be worried about her regaining her ability to talk and spilling the beans. Lots of story potential there.

was I the only one appalled at Bobby? one minute he's lecturing John Ross about how JR used losing the ranch as a justification for his terrible behaviour and now John Ross couldn't do that; then the next minute he's whoring John Ross out to get a business deal.

Easily explained. Protecting the family from outside forces is more palatable than fighting over Southfork, so the whoring's okay.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

Like Bobby said, without J.R. around, they're all going to need to find their inner junkyard dog in order to hold Cliff and Harris at bay. Bobby and Christopher certainly found theirs this week.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

I haven't read this whole thread but is anyone aware that they have signed on Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) to star as Sue Ellen's love interest? I read it three days ago.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

Yeah, I think I remember reading that a while back on the UltimateDallas.com fansite.

In ratings news, while the total number of viewers was back down from the spike for J.R.'s funeral, they managed to retain the all-important 18-49 demo pretty well. Hopefully that will help move TNT toward a renewal for Season 3.

Didn't need to read about it. He was in the promo for Monday's episode.

I'll have to watch again. I didn't notice him, but did notice that Afton (Audrey Landers) is back next week.

^^^It was literally a split second, but I recognize Majors well enough to have said "Hey! That old guy looked like Steve Austin!"

I posted a link about that news story back in February in the this very thread

As for the episode:

Great show. Great cliffhanger. Great to see Gary, Valene and Lucy together even if briefly.

Really my only nit is that Katherine Wentworth, Pam and Cliff's sister, isn't dead. Bobby said she was, but I don't see how he'd know that given her exit during the original series. Katherine was killed during the dream season, so its entirely possible that's what the writers remembered, but it's also possible the Ewings learned of her passing in the interim between the series end and the reboot.

Other than that, it was great!

Judith Light had to leave the show for awhile to do some other work, but she wants to come back.


So Christopher has a soul patch now?

Looks goofy on him, like mud from running and forgot to wipe.
