J.R. Ewing, a Texas oil baron, uses manipulation and blackmail to achieve his ambitions, both business and personal. He often comes into conflict with his brother Bobby, his arch-enemy Cliff Barnes and his long-suffering wife Sue Ellen.
You wouldn't be trying to blackmail old J.R., would you?
In the Hungarian dubbed version, during the entire series, J. R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) is called 'Jockey Ewing', and Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) is called 'Samantha Ewing'. The reason of using the alternate names is a mystery, although rumor has it that Sue had to be renamed because her English name sounded too close to "SZU ellen", which is Hungarian for "against the Soviet Union", and such a name would be unacceptable in a (at the time) socialist country.
