Dallas (1978)

Dallas (1978)


Arguably the best soap opera ever produced, Dallas had it all. Beautiful women, expensive cars, and men playing Monopoly with real buildings. It had the best trans-season cliffhanger in history that had the whole world asking "Who shot J.R.?" Dallas is an important part of American History, if not world history.

The Ultimate Drama Anthology of All-TimeRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

In my opinion, DALLAS is the ultimate drama anthology of all-time. From all of the TV shows I’ve ever watched, I would have to say that Dallas stood above them all. Not only was it the most chattered about TV series from 1978-1991 but it has all the best quality that a certain show must possess. But this show it’s not recommendable for children because it has lots of adult scenes. The storyline is about the power and wealth between feuds of two families which extremely entertaining that you don’t want to miss a single episode. Read more

14 seasons of sex, power and deceit! While the final few seasons lacked the power dictating its iconic fame, Dallas represents a milestone in US TV storytelling. Not since Peyton Place had a "soap opera" dominated TV ratings and the minds of viewers! The "Who Shot JR?" episode remains one of the top 5 most watched TV show episodes of all-time (and allegedly the most watched TV show episode ever worldwide)! The series finale, Conundrum, (based on the "Its A wonderful LIfe" concept) left viewers wondering...and a number of subsequent Dallas TV movies answered the questions! JR, Bobby, Pam and Cliff carved an indelible niche in our socio-cultural fabric. Read more
