Dallas : Weststar's Symbolism

Weststar's Symbolism

Although Ewing Oil was Big Business too, was Dallas making a statement that privately held, smaller companies were better than large, publically held companies? Even Pam Ewing once expressed regret over Weststar's growth and the end of the independents.

J.R. and Bobby, fought each other and could be ruthless, but neither were shown to be as cold as Wendell. Were Wendell and Weststar meant to symbolize the coldness of really BIG business in contrast to smaller firms? Bobby and J.R. could walk away from McKay's deal in Europe, but McKay could not, and in explaining why, he sounded like Ned Beaty from Network.

Even Sue Ellen eluded to this when she told Wendell she would still rather sleep with J.R. than sleep with him, eluding to J.R's passion vs. Wendell's coldness.

LOL that was a cringe worthy moment when Wendell tried to woo Sue Ellen because it's the one and only time we ever saw him like that and when she rejected him I almost felt bad for the guy.
