Some "Dallas" goodies; the loss of a "Dynasty" cast member

The Ultimate Dallas site is once again giving away a "Dallas" DVD set. This time it's the latest set, good-ole Season 8, which officially releases on February 12 in the U.S. and in the U.K a few days later. Click on over to for your chance to win.

Also on Ultimate Dallas, because they just keep those star interviews a-comin' ... Larry Hagman is the next one in the hot seat. You can read the interview with him, where he talks about billions of people being annihilated and crazy stuff like that (a very loose paraphrase, mind you), at

And one more item on the "Dallas" front, and this is a quickie ... has a cute little write-up on our beloved Southfork Ranch, nowadays host to so many of us "Dallas" fans.

We've gotta switch gears here and make this next item more than a news blog blip, as it deserves some more space than that ... Christopher Allport, the man who portrayed Jesse Atkinson in the eighth season of "Dynasty," has been confirmed dead in the recent snow avalanches in Southern California. Allport, who was an avid skier, had been reported missing.

The 60-year-old was no stranger to the soap scene. Besides playing the grimy guy who interfered in Adam and Dana Carrington's attempt to have a surrogate child, he had roles on "Knots Landing," "Another World" and "Days of Our Lives."

Allport had just been working on a 2008 project, "Garden Party." The We Love Soaps blog has a little more, including photos. BRBTV offers condolences to Allport's family.
