I was thinking how great it would be if they included a montage of great JR scenes in his funeral episode, but I doubt they have the rights to them
Again, not necessarily. Warner Bros. is still producing the show, so if they still own the rights to the original series, they could easily do a montage as you suggest. One of the considerations however would be aspect ratio - the old show was shot entirely 4:3, and I feel like the revival is shot in HD 16:9. Not impossible to get around, but certainly something to consider.

Side notes, I saw Bobby and Sue Ellen on a talk show and said the send off for JR was handled beautifully. Did you guys know it was Linda Gray's legs on The Graduate poster?
I did! So cool.

^ General Hospital has been doing a lot of flashbacks recently. They look really stretched out and therefore really bad.

Better they should have the black bars on the sides.

Looks like the Six Million Dollar Man is coming to DALLAS!

I wonder what this means about Ian McShane? Will we ever hear about or (gasp) see Don Lockwood again?

Re: Dallas - Season 2

It can only get very interesting when Bobby asks J.R. for his particular brand of "help".

Also, Annie get yer gun...and shoot that worm.

I know that we all will miss Larry Hagman on Dallas, but I really do think that the new cast will be able to carry the show, which will result in very high ratings for TNT. I hope so anyway.

Did you cheer? I cheered!

Non-sequitor: Every time I see Pamela Rebecca she reminds of both Denise Richards and Tricia Helfer, like if it were possible for those two actresses to have a love child together, it would grow up to be Julie Gonzalo.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

^ I kinda saw it coming in that scene. Especially after Bobby asked for J.R.'s help.

Anne was a little too calm.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

Wow, I didn't see it coming.
I just realized that J.R. could be
a) murdered
b) it could take until the end of the current series to resolve it

Just a possibility in the sea of ideas to keep the show about JR even if he's not actually in it.
I would also go for some prolonged exploration of John Ross and Pamela. Each of them have heaps of crazy... both products of two bitter lifelong rivals. Could anyone see them getting married, producing a son and then of course getting down and dirty with drawn out divorces?

All of this has happened before... waitaminute!!


Anyway... does anyone else think we are going to get another "Who Shot JR?"

Well, really who cares how long it takes as long as it's riveting? i think the writers have got a shot at making this memorable.

Well, on the divorce angle, screwing Christopher over's good practice for Pamela.

If the writers are smart. If they can't have JR himself they need to carry his name to the rest of the season...

Re: Dallas - Season 2

J.R.'s funeral is already planned for episode 2x08, which airs on March 11th; the cause of his death will apparently be a mystery played out over the remainder of the season along with the other continuing plotlines.

A touching and informative article. Thanks for posting it. I didn't stop to think that they'd milk J.R.'s death. It's a great way to keep his spirit alive and ease into a Dallas without him.

As do I.

It looked like Ryland was dead, but with Mitch Pileggi's name in the opening credits, I figured that he couldn't be.

I always think of Tricia Helfer too when I look at her. And in one scene, I thought she looked a bit like Jenna from the old show.

And another thing... Judith Light's character doesn't look old enough to be Harris Ryland's mother. I looked her up and Light is only three years older that Pileggi.

For me it's Tricia's mouth and Denise's eyes.

That's the eyebrows...

I'm thinking she's had work done since he was born...

Most likely they couldn't find anyone old enough that fit the part, or simply were pressed to cast someone quickly, so they just decided to "old up" a veteran soap actress.

Re: Dallas - Season 2

I just had an interesting thought...

What if Ann is the same call girl Brenda Strong played on the old show?

Think about it.

Cliff hooked up with said call girl in the final season of the show (1990-1991) when he had, ostensibly, been dumped by Liz Adams.

It's unlikely Bobby would have met the Brenda Strong character then, but also very likely that Cliff would have forgotten all about her. Never mind the fact that Harris Ryland is just sleazy enough to have probably hooked up with her at the time too.

How fucked up would it be if Emma is really Cliff's daughter, and Ann played Harris into marrying her? Or, perhaps she really is Harris' daughter.

It would also explain why Judith despises Ann so much, and Emma's age works out almost perfectly for it as well.

I don't know that this isn't too farfetched an idea, but it's fun to think about!
