  1. Sue Ellen's Sister says:

    In always: LUCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Bring her back more!

  2. Fascinating C.B. It seems that as its now MMXIV, there is always an “in” IV an “out.” Always the “DALLAS” minutiae of who(m) is plotting, scheming, or working IV or against someone else. Whether it be for their own benefit or for that of say a company, I don’t know sat Ewing Global. But then it wouldn’t be “DALLAS” in any other way would it?!

  3. Scary Elena is going to be interesting! Jesse looks good with a beard. Excited this will be back soon!

  5. Garnet McGee says:

    Hopefully a vengeful, busy, lusty Pamela will be in for 2014. I don’t want to see my favorite sidelined. Actors from Argentina seem to be in for 2014 since there are 4 in the cast. Hate that John Ross cheats but I adore the bearded look.

  6. Margaret Krebbs says:

    Here’s a few of mine:

    What’s out: Cliff in a Mexican jail. What’s in: Cliff getting his hands on Elena and Drew.
    What’s out: Dudley do right Bobby. What’s in: Dark Bobby
    What’s out: Where’s Drew? What’s in: More brooding motorcycle riding sweet emotional Drew.
    What’s out: Overly manicured eyebrows that have a life of their own. What’s in: Au natural!
    What’s out: Scenes in front of large window’s overlooking downtown Dallas. What’s in: Scenes on horseback and on motorcycles
