Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Same here. Even if Rebecca wasn't the one to get shot, she's my least favorite of the new characters, and I really don't see much future for her as the show looks toward Season 2. I'll be VERY interested to see how things play out next week.

I thought so too till she deliberately manipulated her brother/lover into attacking her so she could shoot him. That's pretty interesting.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

A few weeks ago, they were going to have J.R. teach John Ross about the oil business. I thought that J.R.'s absence during junior's tough times were supposed to be part of that and I thought it was brilliant, but things didn't go that way. In fact, it looks like J.R.'s schooling was just dropped. Oh well.

In true soap fashion, they should have Rebecca be in a coma till the babies are born. I'm getting tired of her boo hoo routine. They should have made her a scheming minx who regardless, was genuinely in love with Christopher. Maybe.

This show seems to have more psychological depth than I ever remember from the original. Maybe the younguns can keep this going on their own, JR or no JR.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Gotta feeling we're going to wind up with her "brother" dead but she's injured and she'll lose one of the twins (the blood spatter on one bear but not the other - I don't think that's a directorial accident). The season will probably wrap up with Bobby's life in peril, and JR taking charge of running Southfork and the family while Bobby's gone. I hate to say it, but in a backhanded way I think he's going to wind up being an antihero in this version and not a villain qua villain, and basically he'll save the day.

Yeah...for himself.

Being seen as the family savior would just be gravy...and garner more power for him.

It's all in how you look at it.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Part of the reason they have to emphasize the younger cast members so much is that Larry Hagman is at his age reportedly neither willing or capable of being the driving force of every episode. Even when the new Dallas has only half as many episodes per season as the original.

And people should remember that even in the original Dallas, JR was not an unrelenting villian all the time. He went through sustained periods of being a decent human being. Often after some traumatic event like nearly a full season after he was shot.

Understood. It's obvious he's not a young man, and for other reasons he's also not very robust, even for his age.

One season. He was a right bastard for most of the other twelve, because that's the way people liked him.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Anyone remember Larry Hagman in the movie "Fail Safe"?

He was pretty prominent as the Russian language interpreter for the President (Henry Fonda)

Spoiler or rumor from Soaps.com



Would be interesting if true and would explain her name.

that would be too creepy

and believe it or not I think JR is doing what he thinks is right for his family. It's always about his family and his position in it. He just thinks he's the only one who knows the right course of action and that there is nothing wrong with doing whatever it takes to make sure it's his vision that prevails.

No creepier than the very first Dalllas episode that featured Lucy Ewing (Charlene Tilton) having sex in the barn with Ray Krebbs (Steven Kanaly).

Later turned out Ray was here uncle (or at least half uncle).

If that rumor is true, it's gong to be awfully interesting seeing Bobby's reaction when he finds out about it given how much hell he went through during the original series regarding that spoiler.
