We will be taking a break while I have my holiday/vacation.

During this time I would appreciate any more suggestions you may have.

Think about the answers too, it’s no good suggesting ‘Best Dressed Person’ because I would need pictures for each entry and with photofucket play the devil, it’s going to make it too hard.


These are what I have left

  • Favourite J.R. con-trick
  • Least favourite storyline
  • Favourite cars.
  • Favourite regularly-used set or location
  • Favourite Dallas Wedding


I will follow this post with a list of what we have achieved so far

Ome, first of all congrats to you and all the other mods and posters who are kindly working so hard and also voting here so we can have such FUN. In case you decide on behalf of doing the Best Dressed whatever, you are welcome to use and/or link to the pics in my "fashion" pages from my supersoaps.org site. The 4 major soaps have one, here are the links to them:

https://sites.google.com/site/supersoapsdynasty/home/glamour-catwalk-pasarela-del-glamour

Most of them, if not all the pics, are easily linkable to be used here, and I´m not gonna delete them at least in the upcoming 20 years!

Well, this is just stunning and I think we can do with a vote based on all those wonderful images you have captured through the Dallas years.

@Toni amazing effort. Some pics I'd never seen. Thank you! Great job!!

Thanks again @Ome

I like the best weddings idea

Clothes would be great too

Wasn't there an Angelica Nero outfit that looked like a penguin nun in a biohazard suit with gorilla arms?

  • Favourite film appearance of a Dallas actor or actress
  • Favourite other TV show that a Dallas actor or actress has appeared in
  • Favourite season
  • Favourite 3-way split images in opening titles

Favourite scene at the Oil Baron's Ball or Ewing Barbecue
Oops, I've just realised that this has already been suggested so I'll replace it with another:
  • Favourite scene involving the Southfork pool

What happened to my suggestion of listing Dallas Cast in other roles?
That must have been lost in the mail thread, now that you've mentioned it here, I will add it onto all the other brilliant suggestions so far.



We could be here for a few years....:popcorn:

Favorite JR put downs is a good one bit I can think of a couple more things we could vote on:

1. Least realistic storylines: possibilities include Wes Parmalee as Jock, Bobby returning because it was ail a dream, Angelica Nero storyline including Jack looking like Dimitri Marinos, etc


2. Things they did too often such as:
1. Jr and Sue Ellen breaking up and Sue Ellen moving to a different bedroom, then a reconciliation, then Sue Ellen getting mad at JR and moving back to her own bedroom, repeat ad nauseum.
2. Ray and Jenna arguing because jenna wanted to keep trying new careers but Jenns didn't want Ray to do anything bu be "the cowboy she married", etc.
