Re: The All-New DALLAS!

I'm still thoroughly interested in this series, and enjoying it. The kids, not as much as the older folks, but maybe they will grow on me.

doubleohfive, thank you so much for all your posts here. Reading your comments is reminding me of so many things I had forgotten about the series, and making me enjoy it that much more.

And, finally, (and I admit, I'm a bit hazy on the details here) for a while, everyone thought Christopher was J.R.'s son by Kristin, which is why Bobby was willing to "buy" Christopher from Jeff Faraday to begin with - so as not to have the Ewing name tarnished by a baby born out of an affair. It wasn't till later that they determined that Christopher was actually Faraday's and Kristin's.

I ran to Wikipedia the other night, and apparently she claimed he was J. R.'s son from the affair, but tests later showed that he was Kristin and her husband's son. So he's Sue Ellen's biological nephew.

Or the nephew of the Next Governor of Texas (I'd vote for her).

Meh to me it just doesn't feel like DALLAS even with Hagman--it just feels more like the "jump the shark" years on Dallas when Duffy and Hagman were the only ones left on the show after all the other characters left and they kept bringing in new characters to try to spark some life into the show.
Great, then I guess you'll be spending your time watching the DVDs.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

The third episode was somewhat better than the first two, probably because JR's scheming is front & center now, and that's fun. Also, no Sue Ellen (sorry, her bug-eyed weird acting just annoys me).

Cliff has Robau working for him; JR should just surrender now.

Something else for you to bitch about, TNN is being relaunched shortly as well, by Luken Communications and Jim Owens Entertainment.

I did think about retorting with, "at his age, JR looks like he'll be dead in five minutes, too." But that would be even meaner.

In RL he's had some serious health setbacks.

But then no degree of illness of infirmity could compete with the four bottle champaign a day he would imbibe while filming Dallas in the 80s, which is him cutting down considerably from his days in the bottle during I Dream of Jeannie.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

I'm getting rather fond of Jon Ross. Christopher is just looking a little wimpy and whiney.

I just can't stand Jesse Metcalf. If they'd cast a non-douchebag to play Christopher, I think I'd like him more.

But given the fact that both JR and son are played by real live Texans, I'm sure I'd still be "Team JR and JRjr."

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

I have a practical question. Is this season 15 (ala Doctor Who), since it's a continuation? 15 assuming the ignoring of the TV movies.

Maybe the TV movies were J.R.'s dream "season". Both movies ended with him seemingly getting exactly what he wanted.

As far as J.R. goes, well you can call him J.R., or you can call him John Ross Junior, or you can call him junior, or you can call him J.R. junior, but ya can't him Mister Johnson.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

You just unwittingly employed a friendism which... "We're going to call our baby Frank Junior Junior" - "Don't you mean Frank the Third?" - "PLEASE! Don't get him started."

I thought JR is that they call "Junior" after he turns twenty one because of what JR said in Dallas the early years.

Jock is another word for John, Jock Ross?

JR is short for Junior or John Ross?

John Ross is not Junior Junior, or John Ross Junior, but John Ross the Third or JR III?
