    Match One
    From what I've seen, both Angela and Lilimae got some really fun lines and both had a compelling dark side. My head may say otherwise, but my heart says...
    Lilimae Clements




    Match Two
    Finally, a chance to redeem myself after Match Twelve of Round One. This time it has to be...
    Sable Colby

    Come on, both of these women made the shows on which they were.

    Match One: Angela Channing is Falcon Crest.
    Match Two: Sable Colby is The Colbys. (I could watch Dallas without Sue Ellen though it would not be as engrossing. The Colbys were already torture in all the scenes Sable wasn't in).

    What is sad is that in match two you have two women married to cheating apes who both slept with their sisters, except one ape was a master villain and the other just loved screaming at all the other "damn dirty" ones who touched him with their paws.

    1. Lilimae Clements, because she didn't rely on someone else to do her dirtiest work ever; could and did sing; and actually played an instrument she owned.
    2. Sable Colby, because she didn't do drunk nor little else.

    Your mum is a woman of considerable taste and discernment.

    Under almost any other circumstances, Angela would have gotten my vote. I wanna be just like her when I grow up (livin' large in a big house with all the booze I can drink). Although I don't think I could rock the "Mamie Eisenhower bangs" like she did.

    Both excellent films: along with The Blue Veil, The Yearling and Magnificent Obsession, they are my favourites Jane Wyman films.

    Lilimae isn't wrong, the vote between her and Angela Channing is neck and neck. The match between Sue Ellen and Sable Colby is less close but either character can still win. Vote for your winners by midnight on Sunday.

    Correction: The vote between Sue Ellen and Sable is just as close. Get voting to ensure your favourite character remains in the contest!

    You're right! I really should have counted the votes instead of just going by my impression of how it was going.

    Match 1, round 2): Angela - the undisputed mean yet funny grape granny. While this description could perhaps be the most fitting for Jane Wyman's character she could also be very caring and considerate, mainly to family - FALCON CREST.
    Match 2, round 2): Sue Ellen - from being a trophy wife in the beginning to gradually becoming one of the most liked characters, with a greater presence. Mrs. J.R. Ewing was probably her most interesting as the lip quivering alcoholic. However she became quite the businesswoman, in the later years and this development was important, IMHO - DALLAS.


    Sue Ellen encounters Jeremy Wendell. Jeremy has been a thorn in the Ewings' side for some time. Although he won't be for much longer. However he surprises the viewer but Sue Ellen is ready for him. Sue Ellen will also be saying goodbye soon, (a scene from season 11; DVD - 12, 1988 - '89):

    Jeremy: "I would hope that one day in the future you would consider becoming my wife."

    Sue Ellen with her gloves off, lays into him: "Let me make my position perfectly clear Jeremy. I don't like you! You make my screen crawl when you touch me. I would rather sleep with J.R. than sleep with you and I'd rather sleep with a carnival geek than sleep with J.R. Does that give you any idea as to where you rank in my affections? As bad as my life is now, it can only improve with you out of it."

    The ex Miss Texas walks away from creepy Wendell.
