I had to look up the meaning of that...thanks Google. Willie I'm not sure whether I should get on my knees and beg of you NOT to watch this garbage...but...at least you can then join in the fun of blasting the hacks who thought this was Dallas. EnjoyRorschach
It was!(even if it wasn't filmed in Texas).
Yeah, there's something MTV Cribs about it.
Yes, exactly! The history is implied rather than overt.The history is in the characters but I wouldn't want to see an ongoing trip down memory lane.
JR showed similar signs of frustration when he was in a wheelchair and on crutches after he was shot in the original series.JR is going to talk to Sue Ellen but he doesn't want her to see him with his rollator.
"Take this damn thing!"
That instantly reminded me of a scene from Peyton Place, when Martin Peyton (who usually never showed his vulnerability) expressed his frustration by dismissing his wheelchair as a "motorized baby buggy!"
Yes, and their frailties and vulnerablities, both physical and emotional, seem clearer as well. Watching New DALLAS, Bobby, JR and Sue Ellen all felt much more real, and more moving, to me than they ever did before.Yes, there's something about elderly people that young people don't have.
Their charm is often a little more endearing, their wit is often wittier, and their evil intent usually appears to be more menacing.
Damn Willie. It makes me nearly want to go and purchase the horrid series. I should mention I was watching by other means (when first aired) as I had no faith in any of the commercial networks here in Oz picking it up, which one did.What a perfect first episode. The cast, the storylines...it just works. And that almost seems impossible after everything that happened on first DALLAS.
How do you sequel something like that? But they did it, and it's interesting that they've started with an "ending": Bobby is dying and he wants to sell Southfork.
It's a strange mix of poignancy and decay.
