Trivia

Bobby is told by the Detective that JR's car was hit by the tanker on Loop 12, which is an actual highway in the Dallas area. In the scene where the car is hit, Texas State Highway 161 in Irving, TX stood in for Loop 12. JR's car was parked south of the Rochelle Road overpass and just north of the freeway's then-terminus just north of Texas SH 183. That section of SH 161 had opened to traffic in 1994 and now connects the two tolled segments of the President George Bush Turnpike. See more »

Goofs

When Bobby Ewing rescues Julia Cunningham from the back of a galloping horse, the ground changes several times between grass in the long shots to sand in the close-ups. See more »

DALLAS there is nothing out that can compare to the acting as the actors acted in the series.To me there has been no series out that any one actor has compared to the actor JR EWING.I wish somebody would get all the episodes on vhs or dvd soon.
