Critique - TNT's Dallas Episode 37 - Victims of Love 1 featured image

“Victims of Love” puts the emphasis on corporate wheeling and dealing, but look past all the chatter about IPOs and SECs and you’ll see this is really an episode about the characters and their daddy issues.

We all loved J.R. Ewing, even though he wasn’t exactly Mr. Nice Guy. During the course of the original “Dallas,” he lied, cheated and stabbed the backs of friend and foe alike. But what was his worst act of all? Was it putting Sue Ellen in the sanitarium? Having an affair with Kristin? Driving Cliff to […]

#DallasChat Daily: Who Deserved to be in the Dallas Credits?

#DallasChat Daily 08.01.14 featured image

As much as we all love “Dallas’s” opening credits, they aren’t without their quirks. Linda Gray and Steve Kanaly weren’t added to the title sequence until the second season, while poor Ken Kercheval had to wait until Season 3 to get star billing.
