My favourite moments have to be the fights/arguments between JR and Sue Ellen. Some classic one-liners from both characters in these scenes! – Roger

I watched every episode on a UK Gold re-run some years ago and I really liked Sue Ellen, great character! – Mal

I really enjoyed Dallas at the time, some good plots but very silly plots too! And many changes of actors especially Barbara Bel Geddes to Donna Reed and back to Barbara Bel Geddes! That was odd! – Mary

Miss Ellie had to be my favourite soap matriach of all time though I’m not sure why. JR and Sue Ellen were such a great couple, all those arguments and one-liners. Classic television. Though the less said about that dream and the shower, the better! – Darren

I was a huge fan. Loved ‘Swellin’ and Terry Wogan’s reviews on Radio 2 the next day… Happy memories. I remember being so pleased when the REAL Miss Ellie returned to the soap. – Diane
