DALLAS: Season 3 Discussion Thread (Spoilers)




Its a little under a week away, but this video posted on Facebook today inspired me to start the thread now.




You can see the season 3 trailer here:




The poem is a little pretentious, as if the show is supposed to be more than the soap that it is, but I'm still interested in seeing how they move forward without Larry Hagman.

Anyone else excited the show is coming back?

Cool! I thought it was gonna be more like April.

Glad to have something to watch.

Didn't they open their own gas stations in the original series?

It's about damn time. The wait between seasons for this show has been ridiculous!

Sort of. During the year-long contest over who would win control of Ewing Oil following Jock's death and the reading of his will, J.R. chopped gas prices down to a ridiculously cheap cost in order to drum up more business for his half of the company.

Can't wait. Looks like they'll try to keep JR's spirit alive.

I was so excited when I saw that. Now it's truly Dallas again.

Re: DALLAS: Season 3 Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

The only good thing about tonight's episode was the opening credits... and they were awesome. The show itself was embarrassingly awful. I'm officially done with Elena. Too bad... She was my favorite when the show began two years ago. Christopher, the wuss, is not much better. But at least his behavior has remained consistent.

Actually, I take it back. Tonight's show wasn't a total loss. I do like where things are going with the John Ross/Rebecca/Emma triangle. Reminiscent of JR/Sue Ellen/Kristen, which I have no doubt that Sue Ellen is going to bring up sooner than later.

Re: DALLAS: Season 3 Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

It felt like kind of pointless because they were laying plot threads for this season, which is all well and good, but something still needs to happen. I agree, the John Ross/Pamela/Emma triangle will be the most interesting thing this season, moreso than any wheeling-dealing or stuff involving Cliff and Elena.

Great. I miss JR, but I like Bobby, Sue Ellen and the rest of the gang and they have my attention now. Should be interesting and I'm glad the show was given a chance to continue.
The little commercial for the gas stations was effective - I actually do recall that storyline from last season.
I still think Brenda Strong was miscast and shouldn't be in the show.

"Yayy!" That's what I said when I saw it. (Though with the shortened theme they don't have time to show both the Dallas landmarks and the cast. If they lengthened the intro again then it would truly be a Dallas opening.)

I'm really beginning to like John Ross. I think at some point it occurred to Josh Henderson "Wait a second...I'm supposed to be playing the son of JR Ewing!" Last night he was just that! He was charming and devious and not at all the whiny bitch I couldn't stand the first season. He was great.

The original cast members are still strong and the youngsters are all improving (Though Jesse Metcalf's going slower, and for this I assign partial blame the writers who really can't seem to get him far out of "Yeah, that's what my Daddy said" mode.) I think this series will manage to carry on even without JR Ewing to fall back on. I'm looking forward to a season four , and maybe five.

How sweet would it be if they included an 80's clip in the threesome for Patrick Duffy and Linda Grey?
