If like me you are a big fan of Dallas then you will love this very informative book about Dallas. The author has written this book very well indeed and there is lots of information about all the episodes of Dallas from when it first started on television. There is
also lots of trivia questions in the book and lots of details on the stars of the top show. Highly recommended to huge fans of dallas like me!!!! I mean whoever will forget the good old love to hate him JR and the very sweet Bobby. Great programme and Larry
Hagman as the great JR will be sorely missed. Lets hope ole JR is playing with the big ole oil barons in heaven. Rest in peace JR.

I bought this for a Christmas present for my wife, who is a fan of the Dallas television series. She already had the Barbara Curran book and this, she tells me, compliments it well.

It's fascinating! 10 Feb 2008
By Stephan Doerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Destination DALLAS" is fascinating, and I enjoyed the hell out of it.
It contains:
- foreword
- introduction
- a cast list, based on the alphabetical order of characters' first names (quite a clever idea, because often you are not too aware of or familiar with second names); so if e.g. you want to find out who played Ray's "girl-friend" Bonnie it is easy to find her in the list, and the name of the actress is right next to it!
(17 pages)
- characters: an extensive list of basically every character that appeared on the show, including bit parts and one-episode appearances; with every character you get some information as to who the heck that was and what their relations to the other characters were; e.g.: "Bonnie Robertson. Barfly who slept with Ray Krebbs; Donna Krebbs found them at a motel together." I love it! (52 pages) There is also a roundup of the marriages and births of the major characters
- episodes: 126 pages of episode summaries, giving you information on the plotlines of each instalment (with extremely little comment interspersed): a very helpful overview, quite detailed enough without being overly so; the perfect supplement to Barbara Curran's book on DALLAS which had no more than one line of subject matter for each episode because the script contents are copyrighted material. I don't know how Billie Rae Bates gets away with it then... Maybe Curran, who - I believe - is a lawyer, asked too many questions, or Bates made a deal with Warner Brothers: She does print the covers of all the DVD boxes so far!
- credits for the DALLAS crew (2 pages)
- awards for DALLAS over the years (3 pages)
- "up for debate": 3 pages of controversial issues surrounding our favourite show
- information about the cast members, 26 pages altogether, the length of the individual chapters basically according to the actor's importance for the show; these seem to be largely based on public sources such as IMDB. What is interesting is the fact that you do get the odd bit of information that I at least had not been aware of, plus information on cast members that are not usually considered "worthy"
- 1 page of casting problems and questions
- the author's own interviews (obver the phone or via e-mail) with cast members Sasha Mitchell (4 pp.), Audrey Landers (2 pp.), Art Hindle (Jeff Faraday, 2 pp.), Deborah Tranelli (6 pp.), Christopher Coffey (Lucy's professor, 2 pp.), Hunter von Leer (B.D. Calhoun, 5 pp.), Joan Van Ark (3 pp.), Ken Farmer (player of several bit parts, 4 pp.), Derek McGrath (Mr. Valentine, 4 pp.)
- also an interview with Camille Marchetta about writing for the show, with an explanation about how a DALLAS script looks and works (7 pp.)
- information about the real Southfork (2 pp.)
- a list of great one-liners from the show (at 2 pp. naturally incomplete, alas!)
- a birthday calendar: cast members listed for the days of the year (with information about the year in which they were born, and died), another great idea to structure the information! (4 pp.)
- sketchy information about cast members' websites (4 pp.)
- merchandise: a list of games, books, DVDs and others stuff trying to cash in on the success of DALLAS, not conclusive, but rather detailed and very interesting, also including the various novelizations; many items are also shown in pictures, but on the whole the book would not be worth buying for the photographs it contains.
What makes this book such a thrill is the wealth of information it contains. Though there are bound to be some minor mistakes (and I have spotted a few), they pale in comparison to what is actually there. I found it highly interesting and entertaining throughout, it must be the only printed medium that contains summaries of all the DALLAS episodes!

LIKE DALLAS, BUT DIDN'T GET HOOKED UNTIL LATER 25 July 2009
By Earline Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I REMEMBER WHEN DALLAS FIRST CAME ON. I WATCHED IT FOR AWHILE BUT THEN I STARTED COLLEGE AND THAT INTERFERRED WITH MY ABILITY TO WATCH THE SHOW. I GOT REINTRODUCED TO DALLAS WHEN IT WENT TO DVD'S. AT FIRST I WAS NOT GOING TO BUY THEM. THEN I WAS AT A "F.Y.E." AND FOUND A USED COPY OF SEASON 3, THE SEASON WHEN "J.R." GETS SHOT, AND FROM THAT POINT ON I BEGAN BUYING THE SEASONS FROM THE START.
I AM EXCITED ABOUT A BOOK THAT TELLS ABOUT ALL OF THE CHARACTERS, WHO THEY PLAYED, WHO THEY WERE MARRIED TO, ETC. THIS BOOK WILL BE A REAL TREAT FOR ME BECAUSE I DIDN'T GET TO WATCH THE SHOW FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END. SO THERE MUST BE PLENTY THAT I DIDN'T SEE. I'M REALLY ANXIOUS TO GET TO SEE "HOWARD KEEL." HE WAS FANTASTIC IN ALL OF THOSE OLD MUSICALS FROM THE "50'S" LIKE "ANNIE, GET YOUR GUN," "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," AND "CALAMITY JANE." I'VE BEEN A FAN OF HIS FOR YEARS. YES INDEED, I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON A COPY OF "DESTINATION: DALLAS: A GUIDE TO TV'S DALLAS"

A Different Perspective on Dallas! 31 Dec 2013
By chinagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really like this book because it is so different from the other Dallas books that I own. I really liked that she interviewed the minor players on Dallas. These actors played such parts like B.D Calhoun and Oswald Valentine. I get a more detailed picture of the show through them and others. There were also interviews with Audrey LANDERS (AFTON) and one of the story editors.
I suggest it as a kindle book because it is significantly cheaper and it is not really a picture book.
