Bobby Ewing's back from the dead

This is the famous shower scene from "Dallas", where the popular Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) returns from the dead! It turns out that the last season was just Pamela's dream. You just have to love that!

The dream season is, by the way, one of my favourite "Dallas" seasons. More glamour, more drama, more female storylines, more "Dynasty".

Melrose Place - The explosion

This is one of the best soap moments ever. Kimberly Shaw (Marcia Cross) blows up the "Melrose Place" building in the first episode of season four. This scene guest stars Morgan Brittany, known from "Dallas".
