Best & Worst of Dallas - Season 7 1 featured image

“Dallas’s” seventh season clocks in at 30 hours, making it the show’s longest season yet. Does quantity equal quality? Performances If Cliff Barnes were played by anyone other than Ken Kercheval, we’d probably hate him.

Critique: Dallas Episode 160 — ‘Hush, Hush, Sweet Jessie’

Critique - Dallas Episode 160 - Hush, Hush, Sweet Jessie 1 featured image

What do I love about the final scene in “Hush, Hush, Sweet Jessie”? Oh, pretty much everything. The Ewings stand in the Southfork driveway, panicked because no one knows the whereabouts of Miss Ellie and Jessica, whose murderous past has finally come to light. Suddenly, Donna arrives in Ray’s pickup truck. She gets out, bloodied […]
