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.

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.

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.

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.

According to Wiki, she didn't even tell Cliff. Her Doctor/Fiance told her, "Why didn't you tell them you only have 1 year to live"?

If she comes back, being away for 21 years is gonna be a bit of a stretch for her to explain, even for Dallas.

Oh I know, they found a cure for her terminal illness, but it also wipes her memory, and Patrick spots her at NorthPark Center selling beauty supplies. GRIN

Well, they could use Morgan Fairchild. She was the First Jenna Wade

I was just going to say that she looks as good as she ever did, but it looks like she's had some work done the past few years. She's plastic now.

I remember Julie Gonzalo, who plays Chris's wife, Rebecca, from Eli Stone. Apparently she was in Veronica Mars before that.

I like Julie Gonzalo (especially her lips), but everything she's in gets cancelled.

Just finished the second episode. Seems like the writers have gone a little overboard with making every single character bad. I mean Chris's wife, really? JR was fantastic in this episode and remind me never to cross Marta.

My God, but Ken Kercheval, who plays Cliff Barnes, did not age well from the neck up. Otherwise, he looked to be in pretty good shape, though.

I wonder where the Sutter siblings are coming from. Probably another family ruined by J.R. and seeking revenge -- against the wrong Ewings, of course.
Please post in ep 3 thread...not here. This thread is specifically titled June 13, 2012.
