First new episodes of DALLAS 6/13/12

Did anyone miss the faces of the actors being flashed on the screen during the themesong and opening credits?

They gave the names, but no faces.

Is this a 21st century thing, or something?

Nope, they didn't include the actors' faces with their names.

The theme music was the same, though. It's been running through my head all day.

Spoiler:
And boy, everybody's up to their old tricks, aren't they? Bobby, as always, is the last honest man in Texas, although Christopher's not too far behind. Whotta pair of maroons.

Wow, I'm pissed. There must have been a conflict (stinkin' Dish DVR), but it didn't complain that the episodes weren't set to record. TNT aired it as two one-hour episodes... the DVR got one of them. The other won't record until SUNDAY.

Downloading the only torrent I could find of the Pilot, but they didn't compress it (probably to get it online as quickly as possible). Combine that with a 43k download, and I'm looking at tomorrow before it's done.

Tempted to stream on TNT's site. What a pain.

It was good to see Ray Krebs & Lucy Ewing, but geez man... the years have not been kind to Charlene Tilton. Compare her to Madonna, who's 4 months older... wow.

Digging on Southfork situation. I think that was one of the biggest issues on the series, once Jock Ewing died, wasn't that one of JR's primary goals?


My memories of the series are slowly coming back. I haven't seen an episode since it went off the air, but this was one show my whole family watched from its inception. I think it's time to watch the old ones again.

Spoiler:
The idea of JR slipping into a deep depression fits, at the end of the series he was suicidal, and though in the follow up movies it was retroconned that he actually shot the mirror, by the end of the second movie he'd lost everything again. W/O Ewing Oil, JR is an empty shell.

JR has always wanted to drill on the ranch, in fact he did once before when Jock was alive. (This was apparently a new well altogether because "new reports showed a massive deposit" which is kinda odd, they knew there was a crapload of oil under Southfork. When Jock died the fight was about sole control of Ewing Oil, Jock had updated his will on his fateful trip because he couldn't trust JR, so he divided voting rights amongst the family, including giving control of John Ross' voting rights to Miss Ellie until he became of age. (They actually had to scramble to do this, Jim Davis died unexpectedly, it wasn't initially planned, they talked about replacing the actor, but decided against it).

The Ranch was deeded to Bobby by Miss Ellie while she was traveling with Clayton and decided not to come home because it was too hard on her emotionally.

This actually works well into why Bobby would sell it to a conservatorship, there's no one left that he can trust the ranch to.

Meh. The new generation doesn't have NEARLY the chemistry of the older cast.

Yes. And I didn't like them. The older generation was full of despicable characters, but there was a depth and a likeability factor, as well as a certain sense of humor in them, that had me going back each week. This one, not so much.

As usual, the extensive passage of time is romanticizing the views of the previous program and characters. Criticism of this show's/characters' "lack of chemistry" is WAY premature....

I think ep 2 was better than ep 1. I'm in. I never watched the original show (not that you had to watch it to know all about it) but the older cast was fantastic. The kids, we'll see.

I wasn't a real fan of the original Dallas but the characters on this modern version are so deliciously devious it will be a treat to watch. Bring it on.

The point being the original show had 14 years to develop that depth of character some of you feel is lacking after seeing 2 episodes.

Sue Ellen, Bobby, and Lucy probably developed the most over the run of the show, but it wasn't overnight, and it wasn't forced.

Yeah. The original series was perfect. No problems at all, nope.

Disco Dallas Theme


Give it time. It'll develop. As I said, I really enjoyed it and didn't mind the new cast too much. I think for longtime fans there will always be a hesitation towards the newbies, since we've been so familiar with the other characters for close to 35 years.

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.
