5 October 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Originally aired as a three-hour pilot movie in Ireland back in Spring 1980. This three-hour long special for Irish audiences was the episodes from ''Dallas' season 3 [2] when Val returns to town and bonds again with Lucy, plus, the episode of ''Dallas'' from that same season where Gary and Val tie the knot, and the actual 1-hour pilot that was shown to USA Audeiences. This 3-hour cut also had the cast of ''Dallas'' and ''Knots Landing'' mixed together. The opener went something like this: the ranch from Texas, the cul-de-sac from California and the main cast from both show's in alphabetical order, in fact it was actually originally titled as: ''Dallas At Knots Landing'' Starring In Alphabetical Order: Barbara Bel Geddes, Jim Davis, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Larry Hagman, James Houghton, Steve Kanaly, Ken Kercheval, Kim Lankford, Michele Lee, Constance McCashin, Don Murray, John Pleshette, Victoria Principal, Ted Shackelford, Charlene Tilton, Joan Van Ark. Creator: David Michael Jacobs. Music: Jerrold Immel.
