Re-watching the mini-series, I realize just how much I actually prefer the original (Box) ranch to the traditional iconic Southfork. It has a southern gothic vibe that I love, and it's almost plausible that these people would all live together here where the house has a more expansive "mansion-y" look as opposed to the comparatively tiny Duncan ranch.
It also made much more sense for each of the couples to have their own separate living spaces, rather than having them all live in the main house together.

In my opinion, Dallas was its best from Season 1 (DVD, including mini-series) through Season 6 (DVD), particularly seasons 1-3. The show was at its best when it had well-written female characters who didn't just sit around and watch their husbands like they often did in later years. Pam would definitely fall into that group. Sue Ellen was also at her most damaged around season three and was one of the more interesting and complex characters on the canvas. Anyways, I stopped watching the show after Linda Gray left in the twelfth season. It didn't feel worth it anymore and the quality of the show had severely fallen by that point.
