Meet the Ewings.
On April 2, 1978, Dallas premiered in Primetime, introducing the world to the life of the Ewing oil family. What was supposed to be a five-part miniseries turned into 14 years on the small screen - for its first run. That original mini-series is what is now considered season one, and during those five episodes we are introduced to devious JR, his infinitely-more humane brother Bobby, their parents Jock and Ellie and their spouses, Sue Ellen and Pamela. Here are some of the highlights of season one.
As Bobby arrives back to the family ranch, Southfork, he has his new bride Pamela in tow. The only problem? Her last name is Barnes, and there is nothing but bad blood between her father, Digger, and the Ewings. JR tries to disrupt things by making sure Pamela is caught by Bobby in a compromising position with ranch hand Ray Krebbs, her former beau. It doesn't work.
Instead of showing up for classes at high school, Lucy - the daughter of brother Gary Ewing and his wife Valene - has been meeting Ray in the hay loft for daytime romps instead. Newcomer Pam is not as easily charmed by Lucy as the Ewing men and tries to help.
Spy In The House
JR continues to try to unearth secrets about Pam as he thinks she married Bobby to implant herself as a mole in Ewing family dealing.
