I’m on the last season of Dallas, and it seems to me like character deaths were taken too casually. Sure, Bobby was torn up about April’s death, but it just had a different feel than when someone died or was even in danger in the earlier seasons. It also seemed like burying her in Paris was a plot device to make it easier to leave it behind and not make it as big of a deal. Then there was Jordan Lee. I realize he wasn’t a main character, but I certainly viewed him as a part of Dallas; he had been around since season 2 I believe. Wow, he was just snuffed out without so much as a hiccup. And the weird plot he was part of in the end was really bizarre. Of course, I guess it was already heading in that direction when JR being shot the second time was more of a joke than a serious event, and Pam running away was brushed off as well. I think the light hearted reaction to things like this made me not take the show as seriously.
