Well said.DALLAS also has to be sexy, and - no offence - that wasn't going to work for the older original actors so it simply had to be about the next generation.
I thought they took their soap very seriously, as opposed to the childish dramedy in New Dynasty.
PEYTON PLACE also focused a lot on the younger characters but I don't think young viewers were their exclusive target audience.
DALLAS simply has to be a good and modern soap, and that's what it was. It's not possible to make it look like the LORIMAR days because that was a 70s and 80s soap.
1) sexy John Ross as a gentleman cowboy raising his young kids on the ranch, a good love story with his sexy younger wife, Pamela, Romeo abs Juliet that works out - awe so sweet.
2) Calley’s son would have been fresh out of college - sexy, single, wild play boy, every bit as arrogant and ruthless as his daddy - and think of the girls (and guys) they could have had him with - maybe a young Anderson granddaughter who could have been the suitable marriage JR would want, maybe a under Frank and Claire Underwood partnership. He could have been Lance to JR’s Angela Channing.
Instead we got two thirty somethings acting like teenagers where they older generation keeps getting involved in old stories, with no satisfied ending to those old stories. Uggggg
