Tonight, You Choose the Questions on #DallasChat

Dallas, J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman, TNT

A time for choosing

You’re invited to join Dallas Decoder’s next #DallasChat on Twitter, which I’ll hold 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 discuss.

Leave your suggested questions in the comments section below, tweet them to me @DallasDecoder or post them to my Facebook timeline. I’ll choose the best questions and ask them during tonight’s discussion.

If you’re new to #DallasChat, here’s how it works: For one hour, I tweet a series of questions to my fellow “Dallas” fans. Each question is numbered and includes the hashtag #DallasChat, and so your answers should do the same. (The topics are generally centered around a single theme, such as the Barnes-Ewing feud or the Ryland family, although tonight’s “Chatter’s Choice” session means we’ll touch on a variety of subjects.)

Starting this week, I’m asking everyone to add the show’s official hashtag, #DallasTNT, to their #DallasChat tweets. The goal: to help promote TNT’s “Dallas” as we gear up for the third season, which begins Monday, February 24.

Here’s a sample exchange:

Q1. Who is your favorite Ewing cousin, John Ross or Christopher? #DallasChat #DallasTNT

A1. I’m Team John Ross. He’s just like his daddy, and J.R. was always my favorite Ewing brother. #DallasChat #DallasTNT

Here are two tips:

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

• Be sure to include #DallasChat in your tweets. This allows the other participants to see your contributions to the conversation.

This is the first #DallasChat of 2014, so let’s get the year off to a good start. See you tonight!


  1. I prefer John Ross to Christopher. JR was my favorite Ewing Brother as well.

  2. Jennifer Irons says:

    My question is: Which Ewing brother was the better man to run Ewing Oil in the original series, Bobby or JR? And why?

  3. The show really needs characters from the original Dallas to return as permanent storylines; NOT cameos. Bring some of what made Dallas great back please. We cannot emphasis this enough.

  4. You can only pick one, Pamela Rebecca or Elena Ramos?
    Should Sue Ellen go after Ken Richards? (Lee Majors)
    Is Frank Ashkani (Faran Tahir) really dead?
    Will John Ross and Christopher work as a team in season 3?
    Will Ann Ewing and Harris Ryland have an affair?
    Will we learn what happened to Theresea?
    Will Cliff Barnes and Harris Ryland ever team up again?
    Will there be a different canvas painting of J.R. Ewing? or How should J.R. be immortalized on the show by the Ewing family?
    Will more people will die as a result of Christopher’s mining technology?
    Will automakers and other engine manufacturing industries embrace Ewing Energies?
    Will Drew Ramos be alive and out not in prison by the end of season 3?
    Will Pamela Rebecca team up against John Ross with Emma Ryland? or will Pamela go to war and fight for her man?
    How devastating will it be for the Ewings when Cliff Barnes gets out of Mexico? Will Bobby and Cliff ever go back to being friends?

  5. Looking forward to this chat topic! Here are some questions I’m wondering about:
    John Ross is definitely his father’s son but is there anything he could do that you would not tolerate?
    Which Dallas character do you think is most unhappy? Happiest?

    As of Season 2 finale, which character is most dangerous to the others?

    Which new character do you feel you know best and least?

    If you could produce a Dallas spin off, which character would star in it?

    Do today’s John Ross and Christopher traits resemble the boys/young men we knew in the original series?

    If Emma is pregant, should she and baby be allowed to continue living at Southfork?

    Are you willing to go off the wagon with Sue Ellen or have you no interest in seeing that again?

    What are you most curious about for Season 3?

    Would Miss Ellie be proud of the Ewing men today? Would Jock?

    Would you rather the Ewings battle the Rylands or the Barnes, both?

  6. Garnet McGee says:

    If John Ross becomes a serial cheater can you still root for the character?

    Was JR abusive to Sue Ellen?

    Is a serial cheater by definition a man who disrespects women? How will today’s audiences react to such a male character?

    Would you like to see Emma and Drew reunite?

    How should Pamela avenge herself on John Ross?

    Is the Barnes Ewing feud over? Would you like to see Pamela carry on the feud?

    Does Dallas do a good enough job of incorporating modern day concerns and current events?

    How would you feel if Elena sleeps with Nicolas?

    How would you react to Christopher sleeping with Heather?

    How should Elena get payback for what JR did to her family?

    If Pamela is given another romantic interest who should it be?

  7. Amanda Lynne says:

    Who do you think is pregnant: Emma or Pamela Rebecca, and who is the father?

What do you think?
