I've been a member of soap chat since 1999, which was 13 years before the new show came along. Even then, people discussed what they considered to be flaws in the original show too. We were all fans of the show, so there were still many posts discussing what we liked. But at the same time, it was interesting discussing the points where we thought it went wrong.Well I guess it's difficult to put in nice words how much you loathe it - and it's not that I don't understand why the fans were disappointed.
It's all fine with me as long as we're not being aggressive towards each other.
But I don't understand why some posters like to revel in their hatred and negativity. It's always about "what went wrong with this, what went wrong with that".
When did we stop talking about the things we like?
I know many Dallas fans who wouldn't have bothered with the new series had it not been billed as a continuation. I understand the resentment in light of the direction it went in.
Although I thought it was shitty of them to put scenes like the one where Sue Ellen tells Emma about Kristen in the trailer, only to leave it on the cutting room floor.I like both.
But O.Dallas had 25-30 eps per season, and NuDallas only 15, so I guess they had to cut to the chase.
But I'm sure it would have taken away from Mama Ryland's brothel and the drug cartel's business.
