Re: The All-New DALLAS!

The BSG approach may be the only way to do "remakes" - basically, use the brand name to get the project greenlit - by giving the suits an ass-saving out in case of failure - then ignore it. That way you aren't caught in the trap of trying to live up to a beloved original. Just do your own thing (bonus points if the original sucked to begin with.)

In that light, Mockingbird Lane (The Munsters "remake") could be a success, because the casting suggests they don't give a flying frak about the original.
