Discussion in 'Dallas - The Original Series' started by TJames03, Jun 13, 2019.
When we all knew that Dallas was over.....
That's almost as awkward as when Joan Collins took the award for DYNASTY.
Victoria's hair is everything in that clip!
Patrick seemed to invite everyone to say something except for Deborah Shelton.
Patrick Duffy shows that same type of behavior here that he's been criticized for even on this forum. I don't know where else on the internet you'd be more likely to find fans of his but a number of posters have pointed out that the way he acts towards whoever he's currently working for tends to cross over the line between being a good company man to just plain kissing ass. "CBS, CBS, CBS....a lot of other networks are here tonight so we have to make sure..." Then when he worked on TNT Dallas they were just the greatest thing ever, Cynthia Cidre was a genius, and he even felt the need to mock the original Dallas.
Maybe she told him beforehand she didn't want to say anything. Howard Keel didn't have anything to say either. It was kind of an awkward situation because Victoria Principal was leaving, Susan Howard was leaving and Deborah Shelton was leaving. If she'd said goodbye too it would kind of give the impression that Dallas was ending. I don't know if she already knew she was leaving Dallas.
Duffy is the king of kissing ass.....
Shelton would have been the absolute lowest actor on the rung in this group. Glad Susan Howard leaned in and said goodbye, too....
God, I wish VP would just let loose with an autobio and finally slam the sh%t Duffy, Gray, and Hagman.....
Dallas did indeed end when Pam and Donna left, the strongest of the Ewing wives.
The whole thing looked awkward though, you could tell that 1987 was the year that soaps had lost their steam (after a rather heady, top of their game period from 1983 to 1986), the way Susan Howard leaned in and said she was leaving, the lack of cast also, for DALLAS 1987 was its expiry year, and it shows.
* I could go on, but apparently the memory isn't what it was.
For what? Did they mistreat her?
"Pam and Donna are good, but on the 'Abby scale' they'd rate about a six."
It would definitely be fun to hear what she really thinks of them, but I think she will probably take that to her grave. I have a lot of respect for her for taking the high road no matter what any former colleague tries to coyly imply or say about her.
I agree that she'll probably take the high road. She left Dallas in 1987. if she wanted to write that type of book, why would she wait so long and honestly, why would she think there would be any more than a handful of people who would even be interested in how she got along with her Dallas co-stars, 32 years after she left Dallas? There'd be people from this forum who would be interested, but we make up a very small percentage of the millions of people who used to watch Dallas when it was on TV.
It's possible that she wouldn't even have much to say about how she got along with Duffy, Gray, and Hagman. From what I remember reading here, she wasn't exactly friends with them, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she hated them, or that she was bitter about not being part of that group of friends. I find that unlikely. I find it even more unlikely that if she was bitter about it that she's still so bitter about it after all these years that she wants to write a book in which she trashes all of them with no regard for how that would make her look.
I find it ironic that one of the presenters is Mary Frann who was considered for the role of Sue Ellen.
Oh. That's Mary Frann.
I'd read her name in relation to the Sue Ellen audition but wouldn't have known her if I'd tripped over her.
Best part of Dynasty - ever. They had to create the show in order to make that moment happen.
Nah. They have the Ewing ethos, i.e. standing together, no matter what the differences between themselves. For all the quarrels and feuds that have been rumoured over the years on Dallas, it's never gotten to one badmouthing others publicly.
Knots Landing carried on fine into the 1990s. The quality never crashed there, not even in the last season in 1992-1993. I know that Dallas went on into the 1990s too, but Dallas limped into the 1990s battered and bruised, whereas Knots Landing went into the 1990s with confidence that it was a new era for the show even though the show's very best days were behind them.
