You and I both had the same favorite thing about the New Dallas! Watching Larry Hagman play J.R. Ewing again was a lot of fun and he stole the show!Seeing Larry Hagman play JR Ewing one last time. For years I never thought I'd see it. There were other things I liked but Mr. Hagman's part was my favorite.
I had forgotten Cliff crashed the funeral. I think I've forgotten most of the storylines. I do remember Bobby doing one good thing which was giving Cliff the choice to confess to what he did, or stay in prison and probably be punished more harshly. It was right in character of that loser Cliff to make the self-destructive choice he did. It was one of the few good things about the show - Cliff didn't get away with killing his daughter's unborn twins when he had a building with innocent people in it bombed. That crime was too disgusting even for Cliff to commit and showed Cidre's lack of understanding of the character. None of the main ensemble of original characters would have had a place full of innocent people bombed. I remember how JR said to himself in the original series season 9 when thinking about Pam being kidnapped in Colombia: "If anything happens to that woman because of me I'll never be able to look at myself in a mirror again."I love that Cliff outlived J.R. and crashed the funeral/reception. That was rather amusing.
Exactly. You said it all and you said it well.Seeing Larry back as JR one last time, watching Sue Ellen battle with alcohol again after his death, having Pam finally laid to rest, JR's memorial, and the kitchen argument between Sue Ellen and John Ross. I also thought Harris was a great villain in season 1, Pamela Rebecca and John Ross were well cast, and Cliff's snarky side in season 1 was true to form, unlike the monster Cidre turned him into in season 2.
Other than that, the rest of the show pretty much sucked for me.
I did a fan fiction of falcon crest (or started it). I'd appreciate your feedback on it. I tried to be loyal to Richard and Emma. My only regret at this point is not adding Lance but my goal was to focus on the 2nd generation and move on. I do mention him of course. I also didn't continue Lauren. I wasn't happy with the last season and wanted to move on (which is another reason not to include Lance - leaving him married). I do have an idea for him and Melissa (yes Melissa). My focus is on Michael, Kevin and the development of Cho Li's family. Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated.It's really hard to think of anything positive to say about New Dallas. I too liked that the show was cancelled. Sadly, my memory of Dallas is now so badly tarnished, I haven't watch a single episode of the original series since New Dallas ended. Thankfully, I still have fond memories of Falcon Crest.
And that reflects poorly on the writers/producers and showrunner of Dallas TNT. It's weird that I can easily recall story arcs from Lorimar Dallas but find it difficult to do the same with Dallas TNT. I just remember brief moments like J.R.'s masterpiece. How they finally resolved Pam's death and Katherine's untimely demise mid-sentence by Bobby. The problem I have is Dallas TNT becomes a blur and that shouldn't have been the case.I had forgotten Cliff crashed the funeral. I think I've forgotten most of the storylines.
