  • The First Time Sue Ellen Stands Up For Herself.

    10
    Very Important. For One main reason, at the end. Sue Ellen is basically in a ball crying in her bathing suit. J.R tries to console her. And for first time in the series, we see the Sue Ellen that slowly develops over the course of the series. She stands up, Walks with her head high in her bathing suit and Walks away from J.R.



    Very Important Indeed.

  • "winds of vengeance" is widely regarded as the most boring hour ever on television.

    i saw "winds of vengeance" once. i was taken aback by how boring it was. i thought to myself: how can tv be this boring? i decided to pose the question to jeeves, who was decidedly useless.



    i then tried google, and found several websites on the matter. apparently, this episode of dallas is the most boring episode of anything, to the point that most people are unable to pick up on anything that happens.



    all i know is that j.r ewing and ray krebbs are jerks.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Sue-Ellen apparently won the Miss Texas contest by singing "People", the famous song written by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill for the musical Funny Girl. In this episode she is forced to sing it again.

    • In this episode snow appeared at Southfork for the second and last time in show history. (The first time was in "Lessons" in which the characters actually walk through snowy pastures.) During the scene where Lucy, Ray and J.R. attempt to bring in the herd, and throughout the entire episode, Southfork is windy and snowy. The actors report the filming of the mini-series was miserable due to the cold and snow. During the rest of the series 13 season run, Southfork remained sunny, with the occasional rain storm, no snow, or winter was seen again.

    • When Luther and Allen decided to hold the ladies at Southfork hostage, they chained the front door. When Bobby and Jock arrived at Southfork, they entered through the back door. Bobby and Jock were able to disarm the men, and Jock ordered them to leave the property. When Luther and Allen walked up to the front door, it was no longer chained.

  • QUOTES (3)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Due to censoring concerns, this episode was not initially broadcast in Germany and German-speaking countries. DVD releases to these areas include this episode as part of their bonus material.

    • The "Southfork" used in this episode, and all of the episodes in the Mini-series, is not the Dallas ranched used for the rest of the season. Though no explanation was given, the house changed dramatically with the beginning of the first season.
