    One thing I really miss is the way Jim Davis used to say "Bobby". It was always like, "mmmm, bobby"

    I'll give it a few episodes, but I remember being hooked on the original after the first ep. And even now Larry Hagman stole the show with just a few scenes. We shall see.

    I really enjoyed it. I loved the original and I'm happy to see JR, Bobby, and Sue Ellen back.

    John Ross has got a lot to learn! But he's much farther along that Christopher.

    You need a scorecard to keep track of who's scheming against who and the people involved.

    Did I miss Pam Barnes Ewings status? Pam and Bobby were perfect for each other, and I guess I need to know what happened to her.

    If I remember correctly from the original series, Pam developed inoperable cancer and left without telling anyone except Cliff (and swore him to secrecy). So as far as anybody knows, she just got up and left one day. Both Christopher and Elena said at one point during Ep 2 that they missed her.

    I'm wondering how long Bobby searched for her before giving up, having her declared dead, and marrying Anne. I suppose that will be answered at some point during this new season.

    Thanks Graymalkin. I lost track of the original series after 'Bobby in the shower.' I do hope they address it.

    Actually, the scorecard is a great idea.

    Well, kind of. Pam was in an explosion/car accident as a season cliffhanger. The next season we saw her in the hospital pretty much mummified and in a coma. (The reason for this is that Victoria Principle did not return) Her face was horribly burned in the explosion, they do drastic plastic surgery to restore her, from this point on we only catch glimpses of her and creatively lit shots. (They got a looks-close alike for her) At the end of all this she feels she cannot face Bobby and Christopher and she takes off from the hospital, leaving a note. (I always felt this went against the very core of who Pamela was, after she had searched so hard to find her own mother).
    Later he got engaged to Jenna Wade, she had his child (so really there is another Ewing out there, not to mention JR's older son). They never married. But he did marry April Stevens in the final season.

    I've sure missed this show. :)

    One review I read said exactly that, and that someone says exactly what Graymalkin said. I was looking for the line in the first two hours, but it wasn't there. I would have spoiler tagged it, but I think it's safe to say we're ok with that one. :)

    I really hope Jenna Wade doesn't show up. Priscilla Presley had some awful plastic surgery a while back. Heh.

    I must say I enjoyed it. They have a female showrunner/writer it appears so maybe that will make a difference. I appreciated that they all seem to be on equal footing when it comes to scheming. It was also hilarious to see JR was in a depressed state until he heard his son wanted to start scheming and then he came alive. Now that may be part of the game but it was fun.

    They also did not g over the top on the cliffhanger moments it was more subtle perhaps due to the lower key music.

    NOw it was to some extent this way in the original miniseries from 1979 for those that remember that. I think it started going loud when they had to compete with Dynasty and raised the glamor. IE it went from Black Angus to the Cattle Barrons club.

    Anyone notice Christopher driving his Tesla electric car?

    I thought the car was awful quiet when he ripped out of the driveway, and then I thought I saw Tesla on the trunk. :D

    I liked that it was a red convertible. In other wards a modern version of Bobby's Mercedes.

    Any predictions on who wrote the email! I am guessing Christopher's new brother in law or JR.

    Ha!! This just cracked me up.

    Ah yes, you just jogged my memory. So much of this show I don't remember.

    I'm enjoying this so far. Bobby has not aged well. Yikes. I'd rather have Pam back than Sue Ellen, she always annoyed me and she still does. Just watching her talk grates.

    And as usual, I dig the bad guys the most. Hopefully Christopher gets a little more depth as the show continues.
