    Somewhere along the line, their parents failed them big time!

    JR Ewing: Too Offensive For 2020? Part I

    There are, but some are legal and some aren't. When someone initiates force in a way that infringes on someone's rights, that's illegal. To use that type of force that results in someone having sex against their will, such as because they don't want to be killed, is rape. There is no choice...

    Who was the worst character ever in Dallas?

    You cheered for a woman being kidnapped and murdered? Ya know what? I believe you.

    JR Ewing: Too Offensive For 2020? Part I

    You do see a difference between committing murder and saying "I won't don't a favor for your friend" don't you? The initiation of physical force on someone is a felony, especially to the point of murder. Not wanting to do a favor for a friend isn't a crime. Depriving her of her right to live is...

    JR Ewing: Too Offensive For 2020? Part I

    Well if you recall the circumstances, he never forced Laurel to have sex with him. He said that if she had sex with him he would do a favor for Clayton and if not, he wouldn't, so it was totally her call. Rape isn't defined as a situation where the victim has the opportunity to decline.

    Who was the worst character ever in Dallas?

    Well that's what made the character so terrible, when the show was at it's peak everything was so good that when they introduce this one horrible character, you'e thinking: what the hell is she doing here and why would they have that character in an otherwise great show? That's what made it so...

    Who was the worst character ever in Dallas?

    There was one great addition in the later years of the show - April. Sheree J.Wilson played April perfectly, saving seasons 11, 12 and 13 from being considerably worse. James irritated me too. That's a bad character and a bad actor as opposed to Cally who was not a good character because it...

    SoapLand - The Battle Of The Male and Female Characters - The Result

    All mine will be Dallas because it's the only 80s soap I've seen. Men 1. JR Ewing - the innovative, groundbreaking character that become a cultural icon. The idea of having "the cool bad guy" as the most featured character of a primetime show was something nobody was doing and it...

    Who was the worst character ever in Dallas?

    Which are you weighing more heavily: the bad acting or something about the actual concept of the character- the way it was written?

    So how would YOU have saved Dallas?

    I agree she would have been far better off hiring someone to do the job for her, because she'd have someone qualified for the job and it would relieve her of the stress of having to deal with JR every day at the office. For the sake of the show, they'd have had to have made sure that whoever...

    April's Strength

    You're welcome! It's nice when the forum gets new members because it's always fun to hear someone else's thoughts on Dallas. Just out of curiosity, did you watch Dallas when it originally aired or did you discover it later? I watched it when it originally aired although didn't start watching...

    April's Strength

    That's a very nice comment. Welcome to the forum @Miss Ellie Fan! I also really enjoyed her development as a character, watching her become a better woman and then going after them man she loved. April wouldn't compromise or "settle." She knew Bobby was the man for her, she was persistent, and...

    JR Ewing: Too Offensive For 2020? Part I

    Had Dallas never aired until now, and were to begin airing in its original form, as a show set in 1978, would JR Ewing be too offensive for audiences in 2020? Would people today be able to handle JR Ewing and enjoy the character for what it is, or would they be "offended" and "outraged"? I'm...

    Remaining The Innovator

    I think they an attempt to innovate in season 12. Did it work? Probably not. Still, it was the last season where I saw some type of serious attempt at innovating and no, bringing in a lot of good looking young people doesn't count. If it did then Tommy and Tracey McKay, Michelle Stevens and...

    Most Obvious Plot Hole In Dallas

    Another huge one, although I guess it's more of a blunder than a plot hole, is how after Sue Ellen shot JR three times in his own home, after her accomplice had broken the door in, they could have allowed Sue Ellen to get away with it. Where is the drama without consequences? It was the worst...

    Dallas Let JR And Sue Ellen's Marriage Go On Far Too Long

    I felt the same way about pretty much everything you just described. Dallas stopped developing their characters and started destroying them. I think the producer was burned out from having to do the whole job himself, since Phil Capice was no longer his co-producer and Katzman just decided, the...

    Why Weakening JR Wrecked Dallas

    I was also surprised when I first watched it, but that's one of the few things about TNT Dallas that made sense. Cliff had allowed bitterness, jealousy and revenge to consume him and it took its toll! It would have had to. Nobody can allow all those negative emotions to fill their mind and not...

    Dallas Season 5 - Their Biggest Missed Opportunity

    If they thought the audience was watching to see JR get what he had coming to him, then when he got put in prison would have pulled in a huge audience. People would have been calling their friends on the phone and saying: Ya know that show Dallas you quit watching because the bad guy never got...

    Dallas Let JR And Sue Ellen's Marriage Go On Far Too Long

    My take on it is that she was still very much reactive. Did Sue Ellen have a genuine interest in getting into the lingerie business? No, it was a reaction to JR seeing Mandy. Was teaming up with Kimberly a pro-active move to improve her quality of life? No, because she didn't want to own Westar...

    Most Obvious Plot Hole In Dallas

    I think that was terrible judgement on the part of the creative team. They said he had the same injuries as Jock but couldn't be bothered to at least have the guy have some scars that would indicate he'd been in that type of an accident. Not only did the accident not cripple him, he didn't even...
