since the new dallas doesn't follow the tv movies where do the tv movies fit in?
The movies are being 'ignored' but they are borrowing elements of them....
- 'Rebecca' being Cliff and Afton's daughter as in 'J.R. Returns'
- The mineral rights preventing drilling (this is what made Carter McKay's ownership of Ray's land worth far less than he paid for it...drilling rights) like in 'War of the Ewings'
Acually cliffs Rebecca was in the tv show, it Cliff opened the door and a girl open it and cliff put two and two together and it turned out she was his
^^^ Yep, I wonder if she took Cliff's last name.
In the later seasons Afton came back and we got to meet Pamela "Rebecca" Cooper, who is now Rebecca Barnes.
and the mineral rights aspect of Southfork has been going on since at least season 4. Miss Ellie had the mineral rights to Southfork and agreed to open them up to drilling when JR mortgaged Southfork over the Asian oil leases.
^^^ That almost broke Miss Ellie's heart becuase she promised her father she never would do that!!
