Stay tuned

Now that TNT’s “Dallas” has completed its second season, I’m ready to get back to writing about the classic series. I plan to post a critique and “Dallas Scene of the Day” transcript each Monday and Wednesday, beginning next week.

I’ll pick up with the sixth season, the year that gave us Jock’s will, the contest for Ewing Oil, Holly Harwood, the Trotters, cut-rate gas, Cuba, Walt Driscoll, the McLeish brothers and of course, the Tundra Torque. (If you don’t know what any of this means, what better time to start reading Dallas Decoder?)

I also hope to continue offering interviews, the “Drill Bits” news column and other features, including special content for social media. By the way: If you haven’t liked Dallas Decoder’s Facebook page or followed the Twitter.com feed, please consider doing so.

If you have ideas or other feedback for Dallas Decoder, share them in the comments section below or send me an e-mail me at dallasdecoder-at-gmail.com. I always appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks for reading, and have a great summer!


  1. Great to hear that Chris – you won’t be disappointed in the excellent season 6. By the way this is also the season Miss Ellie foresees the events of the new Dallas – ie. John Ross vs Christopher so there’s an added interest.

    Thats real nice. Could you pour me a bourbon & branch so I have something to drink while I read the critiques?

    So excited to read your reviews- the next two seasons are some of the best!

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At last – I have been having Dallas Decoder withdrawal symptoms for a good few months now. As you know I’m not a huge fan of TNTs new cast so delighted that you are back reviewing the biggest and the best Dallas there ever was. And boy it was a great season! I will take Miss Ellie, Pam, Donna, Lucy, Clayton, Ray et al any day of the week! Not to forget JR, Bobby and Sue Ellen

    • Welcome back, BF! I missed you. I plan to post a classic “Dallas” critique every Monday and Wednesday through the rest of the summer. I’ll also have two “Knots Landing” critiques, along with a few surprises. Stay tuned!
