Stetsons, Shoulder Pads and Sex. Yes, Dallas is back!
by JoAnne Kenrick
Yes. You heard me right! Dallas is BACK! And with a few familiar faces from the past such as Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and my favorite...Linda Gray; she still looks amazing, doesn't she? In it's hay day--1980s--it was a huge success. Critics are now wondering if they'll enjoy that same success today.
It's my two cents/pence worth that there isn't a chance in hell Dallas will ever be as big as it once was. But I have a sneaky suspicion I'm still going to LOVE it! And I'm pretty interested to see how those spoiled boys of Bobby and JR have grown up. John Ross was a bit of a sod, wasn't he? So it better not get the axe first season in. Are you listening, TNT? Don't cancel it before giving it a real chance to shine!
The new boys in town are:
Jesse Metcalfe -- Christopher (Bobby's boy)
Josh Henderson -- John Ross (JR's boy)

CHANGING OF THE GUARD
"It's been a long time since it's been on air," he says. "The actors are certainly icons of television. When they were in their prime they were young, attractive people, now it's a bunch of sad old folk," he says." -- BBC UK, Chris Brown
- Back in the day, Dallas was compulsive watching for many. I hope they can recreate that because I'm simply dying to love it all over again.
- The show ran for 13 seasons between 1978 and 1991. Twenty one years on, it's back! Catch it this June on TNT.
