Ah, Dallas. That quintessential American soap opera, chock full of every ingredient you could possibly need for good viewing: romance, sibling rivalry, murder, mystery, intrigue. Of course, let us not forget the lush Texas setting that provided the backdrop for each episode of Dallas, from its first airing in 1978 to its finally episode in 1991.
If you love the show as much as we do (which is saying something, because we’re a bit biased), you’ll enjoy this quick retrospective of the main characters. If you’ve been wondering where they are today, you’ll soon know.
