It’s ‘Chatter’s Choice’ Night on #DallasChat

Decisions, decisions

Decisions, decisions

I’ll host Dallas Decoder’s next #DallasChat on Twitter on Monday, June 17, from 9 to 10 p.m. Eastern time. Our theme: “Chatter’s Choice,” which means you get to help decide the topics we’ll discuss.

Leave your suggested questions in the comments section below, tweet them to me @DallasDecoder or leave them on my Facebook page. I’ll choose the best questions and tweet them during the discussion so everyone will have an opportunity to answer.

Each question will be numbered and include the hashtag #DallasChat, so your responses should do the same. A sample exchange:

Q1. If you could nominate one #DallasTNT actor or actress for an Emmy, who would it be? #DallasChat

A1. Linda Gray. Her performance during J.R.’s funeral episode was phenomenal. #DallasChat

Two tips:

• During the chat, enter the hashtag #DallasChat in Twitter’s search field. This will help you watch the search results so you can follow the conversation. Be sure to click on “All” to see all the related tweets.

• Don’t forget to include the hashtag #DallasChat in each tweet you send so others can see your contributions to the conversation.

I look forward to posing your questions during tonight’s chat!


  1. So, is it going to be more than one topic? Are we going to have each chatter pose a question on whatever topic s/he chooses?

    • Yes, there won’t be a theme to the discussion. You can suggest a question about anything related to “Dallas” — any character, any storyline, any scene, etc. I’ll choose the best suggestions and pose them during the discussion.

  2. Jennifer Irons says:

    Q2 what is your least favorite #dallas episode(old or new series) and why? #dallaschat

  3. So, if we’re asking Jenn’s question, how about also asking: What is your favorite Dallas episode and why?

  4. Almost a repeat of Jennifer’s great question, but I wanted to know what is your least favorite Season of the orginial #Dallas Series?

  5. With the exception of Kristen (SueEllen’s sister) which of Jr’s extra marital affair’s digusted you the most?

  6. Maybe you can think of a better way to ask this: Which visiting Ewing relative character did you like the best or least like and why?

    • Oh, I like that one a lot. There are quite a few: Uncle Garrison, cousins Jack and Jaime, Aunt Lil and Mickey Trotter, Patricia Shepard. I suppose Gary and Val count as visitors too.

      Another great question, Sarit. Thanks!

  7. What day of the week and at what time (indicate your own US time zone: ET, CT, MT or PT) would you like Dallas TNT Season 3 to be broadcast?

    Or maybe there’s another way to ask this to include international participants.

    I’m throwing out ideas. I don’t expect for you to ask all my questions. Just so you know.

    • They’re great questions, one and all! Keep the ideas coming. I may not be able to ask all of them tonight, but I’d like to ask all if them at some point. And I’ll be sure to give you credit. (Do you have a Twitter handle I can use?)

      Thanks again.


  8. How about: What is your favorite Dallas sibling relationship and why? Or: With the exception of JR & Bobby, what is your favorite Dallas sibling relationship and why?

  9. Sweet Sarit aka SweetLee says:

    How about showing a photo from a Dallas scene and asking what people remember about what’s happening in this shot?

    Or asking people to comment on a photo with captions. Or would this be copying DallasFanzine’s photo caption requests?

    • Dallas Fanzine does a great job with its photo caption requests, so I don’t want to duplicate that effort. But your idea brings to mind another idea that I’ve been toying with. Stay tuned for details.

  10. Anonymous says:

    With the exception of Who Shot Jr? what is your best and worse Dallas Cliffhanger?

  11. Sweet Sarit aka SweetLee @Dallas_follower says:

    How about asking for alternate ending ideas for certain scenes, plots or episodes? Ones that stand out as popular or controversial among fans.

  12. You could ask maybe:

    Which original character would people most like to see return in season 3?

    Which storyline are people most excited to see in season 3?

    Would you like to see season 3 be longer than 15 episodes?

    What is #1 on your season 3 wishlist?

    That’s all I got right now, like alot of the ones up top! If you want to use any of these ones, my Twitter handle is @TVFan349

    Thanks for hosting these chats! They’re alot of fun!

    • Great questions, Pat. I posed some similar questions during my first or second #DallasChat, but it’s a good idea to pose them again to give newcomers a chance to answer.

      I appreciate your ideas and support. Thanks!

    The ratings for season three of TNT “Dallas” skyrocket and the network comes to you, the producers, salivating for a spin-off. Who would you spin-off? What would the show be about?

  14. SweetLee @Dallas_follower says:

    Why do you think Dallas speaks to so many people around the world, making it the popular international TV show that it is?

    What are the show’s qualities with which people around the world identify?

  15. What’s an aspect of the original Dallas that you’d like to see more of in Dallas TNT?

    Would you rather see Emma grow to be more like Ann or Harris & why?

    What non-Dallas celebrity would you like to see join the cast? What type of character would they play?

  16. Bruce James says:

    Q1.What element would add/perfect 2 make Dallas the best show it can be?

  17. Bruce James says:

    Q. How would you arrange the shows romantic relationships?

  18. Bruce James says:

    Q. Are there any TNT Dallas series leads you think have run their course? If so who and why?

  19. For a season 3 wishlist, how about adding Edward James Olmos to play Elena’s uncle? With the way EJO did on Battlestar Galactica playing Adama, he would be a good fit to feud with the Ewings for the land that was stolen away from a deal that J.R. done in the past. Just a suggestion.


  1. […] Monday, January 6, from 9 to 10 p.m. Eastern time. The theme: “Chatter’s Choice II.” Like last year’s “Chatter’s Choice” session, you’ll help decide the topics we […]
