now that the show has been renewed, which character would you like to see return with a big storyline?
I realize my poll does not include later season characters; I'd lost interest in the show after Pam and Donna left.
I apologize, R1; I should have included Kit or OTHER as a choice.
It was groundbreaking for Dallas to include a gay character; and I LOVED (I recall) JR telling Lucy to marry him anyway; it would'nt be the first marriage like that.
So rich it was fattening.
Bobby's son with Jenna.
I want him to be hot as hell and looking for revenge.
Too bad Alexis Smith is dead as are Howard keel and Barbara Bel Geddes.
Jessica Montford was an insane hoot.
But what about Dusty?
What actually happened to Jack Ewing and his sister? I know in the "dream season" the sister got killed, but I can't recall what actually happened to them.
I voted for Donna (it would also be interesting to see the daughter she had with Ray mix it up with this new, younger set), but I'd really like to see Dustry Farlow come back.
When they brought Dusty back in the old show he had lost his penis in a rodeo accident. It was one of the things that made me stop watching back in the 80s.
I want to see the guy that managed Sue Ellen's lingeree venture. I had such a crush on him. Or that guy with the real hairy chest who used to sleep with Lucy in the early episodes.
I think Susan Howard is a professional freeper fundie cunt now. I'd like to see her fugly self back on TV even less than that nutty alcoholic VP.
[quote]When they brought Dusty back in the old show he had lost his penis in a rodeo accident.
He was injured in a helicopter
crash, IIRC, and was partially
paralyzed. I think he regained
at least a good portion of his
sexual functions, as he did get married.
it was classic soap when Sue Ellen's lawyer stated at her divorce trial from JR that Sue Ellen was NOT living in sin with Dusty as he couldn't have sex.
JR REVELED in that; he said to Sue Ellen later something about "long, uneventful nights on the Southern Cross Ranch."
SUCH A BASTARD!
The show continued to call on Dusty throughout the years. First, he and Sue Ellen split, he married a girl named Linda (ironically), then divorced her and picked up with Sue Ellen again on and off.
I read he came back after Linda Gray had left the show but I stopped watching by then.
"Ray...you used to love the LAND! What happened, Ray?"
Couldn't Bobby at least have a telephone conversation with Gary? You never need to see Gary, but Bobby could call on him to get something signed to thwart JR's plans.
I hate the way Gary, Valene and their family (3 children!) no longer exist in the Dallas universe.
Maybe the could add Betsy, Gary and Valene's daughter to the cast... she and Christopher could get it on, fall in love, etc... ain't nothing wrong with that, right? Christopher's adopted.
Of course, the writers could find some way to make Christopher an actual Ewing and then the wedding would have to be called off!
Bingo - season cliff hanger, because whoever spilled the beans about the kissing cousins would be dead. Who killed the snitch?
R7, I agree, it would be fantastic to have Sly back working for JR.
Agreed it would be fun to see JR call on Sly to help with a scheme.
Bobby just mentioned Gary in last weeks episode. I'm sure they will continue to grow the cast. Cliffs daughter seems o be an obvious choice for me since Cliff has been seen and is still a thorn in Jr's side. John Ross dating Cliff's daughter would drive JR crazy!!!

How dare you!
Lucy(hanging around with my "uncle" Ray)
Wow, I thought *I* was a "Dallas" obsessive. I don't even remember half of the characters mentioned here!
Top of my list would be Jenna's daughter Charlie and her high school boyfriend Jenna caught her fucking in a hay loft ... who was played by none other than Brad Pitt. Yes, Brad would need to return for the role.
Seriously, I think most of you need to accept the reality that times have changed, and that the vast majority of viewers remember only the original "Dallas" cast, two of whom have passed away. The ratings plummeted in later years, so please, no calls for characters like Callie or whoever the fuck Susan Lucci played to return (yes, I know April's dykey sister killed her).
Realistically, the show needs more villains. I'm totally fine with Mitch Pileggi joining the show full-time, particularly if the producers cast somebody who can play the diabolical-bitch role to a T to be his new wife. J.R. needs a counterpart, and by that I don't mean Ken Kercheval, who really needs to go back out to pasture. How about Diahann Carroll? She's still acting (frequent guest star on "White Collar") and looks DAMN good for her age, plus "Dallas" could use a little ethnic diversity (Elena the "Mexican" maid's daughter, played by an Anglo woman, doesn't count).
Most of all, though, it would address both the pleas of longtime fans as well as deliver the BEST IMAGINABLE cliffhanger if Pam were to finally reappear (only if played by Victoria Principal, of course!). That would not only give Christopher a great plot twist, but also a major one for Bobby and Ann. Anyone else up for Pam and Ann duking it out Krystle-and-Alexis style in the Southfork pool??
I agree that Pam should ONLY come back if Vicky Principal agrees to the role. I don't think she will though. Larry Hagman hated her (apparently) and made her life miserable on the set, and she certainly isn't hurting for cash. Trouble is that with Pam and Jenna, both actresses are barely recognizable anymore.
And I really don't think Brad Pitt will be making any guest appearances, although I would love to see Charlie back, played by the same actress, of course.
Joan Van Ark ruined her face. There is no way they are going to have her on Dallas 2.0. I also think that rules out Gary. Although Ted Shakelford (sp?) is currently working. He has a small role on The Young and Restless. There are weeks when he isn't on Y & R. So he could definitely work around that schedule.
They have GOT to add some cast photos to the opening for season 2!
It's confirmed. We will be getting some Gary, Val, and more Lucy in season 2. Maybe some Afton too.
How about Julie Harris? I'd love R16s plot suggestion.
So Gary and Val confirmed but who will Judith Light play?
R28, she'll be playing a New York ad exec named Angela Bower who moves to Dallas to escape her housekeeping husband and gay son. Add on an over-sexed mother and a step-daughter who is a witch and you've got a woman with a past looking for a fresh start in the Texas wild.
Gay son, you say? That's a perfect storyline for John Ross.
when will Bobby Jr present his hole?
Audrey Landers has already been confirmed as appearing in an episode or two this upcoming season.
Susan Lucci (Sheila Foley/Hillary Taylor)
Cannot wait for January 28th!
r23, Val and Gary are reportedly coming back for a few shows.
Why the fuck was the recent "Dallas Season 2" thread closed?
What ever happened to the relationship with Sue Ellen and the British director/producer named Don Lockwood? He was played by the fabulous Ian McShane
Last year, there was a man who committed suicide in court just like Frank did. I think he was a banker.
I loved when Bobby said to JR, "It's not like the old days when we used to knock 'em back for no reason at all." On the old show, they were pouring drinks in almost every scene.
BUMP for tonight's episode.
I just can't buy Judith Light as Harris Ryland's mother. It's awful casting, age-wise.
Help me with some info. I stopped watching mid-last season. So Christopher is currently married to his cousin. She is Cliff's daughter. I know that Christopher was adopted but it is still kinda ???
What is the deal, I knew she was up to no good, but to knowingly seduce her cousin?
Who is Christopher's real parents? Weren't they real characters from the original series.
Christopher's real parents were Kristin Shepard, Sue Ellen's sister and a character named Jeff Faraday. He sold Christopher to Bobby when he needed money. There is no DNA relation between Pamela Rebecca and Christopher.
