Dallas - Season 2



Dallas returns on January 28th for a 2nd season (or a 16th season if you prefer), so I
figured it's time to start a new thread since the first one is getting a bit long. The new
season will have 15 episodes and will deal with the untimely death of Larry Hagman.

First off, here's a post from the last thread…

More spoilerific casting news for the new season, and most notably who TNT has lined up so far to attend J.R.'s funeral on March 11.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

While I enjoyed last season, that was entirely because of JR. Once he is gone, how are they going to keep things interesting?

I just hope they end all the "Bobby is sick" crap. They need to keep him around now more than ever.

Is it going to be 15 unbroken weeks or split into two groups?

Fuck yes. He'll have some spring in his step this go around for sure.

I'm still hoping there's enough JR in the first five episodes to carry the interest through the season. Glad they didn't recast, though.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

It sounds like it'll be dealt with fairly quickly, with episode 2x08, airing on 11 March, being J.R.'s funeral. I think it's actually better this way, rather than the way they dealt with Jim Davis' death — half a season of Jock being away in South America, then dragging on for the rest of the season with Miss Ellie being unable to admit that he's dead. Address it and move on with the show.

^ They might have been considering recasting Jock, at least for a little while. Jim Davis would have been a tough act to follow, but it's more typically soap opera to recast a character.

Of course it depends on the popularity of the character and how long one person portrayed that character and therefore how much that actor was associated with the role.

Actually... the plan was to make the Ben Stivers character in the "dream season" actually turn out to be Jock after all, but when they resurrected Bobby and Ben Stivers became Wes Parmalee, the writers realized it would have been too much to have two beloved characters return from the dead so soon. So Parmalee turned out to be a fake, and Jock remained dead.

^ I've read that story about Parmalee, and of course remember the character. I was thinking they might have toyed with the idea of a recast much earlier.

It's covered in Barbara Curran's excellent, comprehensive book about the production of the series.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

The season premiere is tonight at 9:00 PM! As with last season, they'll be airing two episodes back-to-back, so be sure to tune in for your double dose of backstabbing and scheming!

I hope someone gets pushed fully clothed into a swimming pool. That's a staple of the old series.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

And something that was desperately missing from the first season of the new show. Hopefully we'll see that rectified this year.
