Discussion in 'Dallas - The Original Series' started by Sarah, Sep 16, 2016.
I won't be watching anything with Holly in it unless I can fast forward it. VOMIT. lol
I found the wedding to Cally extremely hard to watch and difficult to stomach. I was like 'JR what are you doing??!' - it hurt so much. It's only as an adult, rather than the child that I was then, that I can see what was going on.
One of my favourites:
Great picture Sarah.
Love that photo Sarah.
Yeah there was plenty of hurt going around after JR/SE split up that last time. Here's a couple of more screencaps from one of their later scenes:
The look on her face when she sees him...
Yes, och you totally know they are playing a game although Sue Ellen is better at it this time round. He'd still totally take her upstairs though at any time.
I agree there's still a lot of sexual tension lingering underneath the surface between them at that time...
God I could stare at them both for the rest of my life. When I die they had better be there to meet me.
No talk about dying, we're all gonna be here for many more years hopefully. Anyway here's some more caps for you to stare at:
JR arrives to pick up the kids
Karin, i love all the screen caps you are posting of JR and Sue Ellen from Linda Gray's final season on orginal Dallas. The writers were stupid to break up JR and Sue Ellen after we lost the pairings of Bobby/Pam and Ray/Donna when Susan Howard and Victoria Principal left their roles of Donna and Pam.
Agreed but even with those break ups, they were stupid to part JR and Sue Ellen - the couple with the most passion and chemistry. I believe Dallas would have lasted a lot longer had they stayed together.
Well it wasn't as stupid to break up JR/SE as it was to not have them get back together again until in JR Returns. It should have and would have happened earlier if Linda hadn't left the show I bet. The last season after JR's marriage to Cally had broken up and he was running around after Vanessa was far from Dallas finest!
Too bad he didn't cheat on Vanessa with LeAnn De La Vega, I was sort of rooting for him to do that!
Anyway since I seem to be in a bittersweet mood here's some more screen caps from the latter seasons:
The look on Sue Ellen's face after she's realized she's just saved JR from getting killed by Nick Pearce's dad.
The look on JR's face when Sue Ellen is leaving him to move to England
At his wedding to Cally this look says more than 1000 words...
I love how Larry chose to zoom in on Linda's face as it just establishes a connection between JR/SE. It's like their eyes meet across the driveway where they are standing on different sides and everyone else just fades away.
The look on her face after he's left.
The look on JR's face after he'd heard that Sue Ellen is Mrs. Lockwood now.
Only if the writing and compelling stories were there. I'm afraid not even the characters of J.R. and Sue Ellen could have saved Dallas from its imminent demise, besides, Linda was let go due to her character running its natural course and no money left in the kitty after Larry was paid his wage.
That is a very true and valid point Rove.
Besides Dallas had a great run so I guess it needed to try to re-invent itself a little in the latter years and I know I'm in the minority about this one but I actually liked new characters like April, Cally, James and Michelle!
Anyway here's some more screencaps, this time from the oil baron's ball when Sue Ellen was furious with JR for the Cally fiasco...
Sue Ellen's reaction to the news that Cally is JR's new wife...
Okay enough with the heartbreak of the last seasons and now on to that scene in the gym...
Sue Ellen tries to exercise when JR disturbs her.
He starts to sweettalk her as he rubs her shoulder...
Then he puts both hands on her...
Giving her neck a massage...
Then when she can no longer resist him he pulls her into his arms...
I don't feel it is true - Larry wouldn't have let his wage compromise Linda. He wanted her to stay. He begged her to stay. (And how anyone can like James is beyond me - that wasn't Dallas lol)
