With Season 1 of DALLAS just wrapped, the successful TNT continuation of the classic CBS series, we’ve seen one of the rare instances where characters from an original series have been expertly integrated into a next generation saga. As executive producer and occasional director of DALLAS, Michael M. Robin knew the risks and rewards of bringing such an iconic show back. We spoke with Robin at a recent Paley Center event in Beverly Hills promoting the THE TELEVISION OUT OF THE BOX exhibit featuring props, wardrobe and sets from classic Warner Bros. Television projects. Here’s what he had to say […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Revelations” – Season Finale

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre & Robert Rovner Director: Steve Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: August 8, 2012 The build up was intense, the results, not quite what I expected. Still, the DALLAS Season One finale “Revelations” was only partially intriguing, somewhat suspenseful and not hardly at all surprising. Perhaps, it was because my expectations were too high. Or maybe it was because I was led to believe I could expect above average greatness, every time, ever week. This week, arguably, the […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Family Business”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Bruce Rasmussen Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: Aug 1st, 2012 As we reach the end of Season 1 DALLAS, I can’t help but feel sad, TV depressed that is. After all, a show finally comes around that can not only peak my interest but also keep it throughout the entire season. Now, granted the season is only ten episodes – note to producers: that’s not enough – but still after one episode of ANGER MANAGEMENT and […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “No Good Deed”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Julia Cohen Director: Michael Katleman Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 25th, 2012 It’s only episode number eight of DALLAS and yet we are at cliffhanger number 33 already. We last saw John Ross being driven away in a police car. Not able to explain his DNA under Veronica Martinez’s fingernails, John Ross (Josh Henderson), no surprise, is arrested for her murder. But, as always, there is more to this case than meets the eye. John Ross refuses to give […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Collateral Damage”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 18th, 2012 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again the DALLAS theme is one of the best TV theme songs ever, instrumental or lyrical. And to boot, the show, too is one of the best ever. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new DALLAS inspired other ’80s nighttime soap operas – as they were once called – to be revamped. The return of FALCON CREST and KNOT’S LANDING may be just around the […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “The Enemy of My Enemy”

Linda Gray in DALLAS - Season 1 - "The Enemy of My Enemy" | ©2012 TNT

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 11th, 2012 Not many shows can be resurrected so beautifully as DALLAS has been. The new cast fits nicely in with the old cast and together they are creating one of the best new dramas in years. Josh Henderson leads the cast as John Ross perfectly. He has the sinister DNA and charming personality of his dad J.R. (Larry Hagman) which allows him to woo those around him and yet he’ll be the first to […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “Truth And Consequences”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Robert Rovner Director: Randy Zisk Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: July 4th, 2012 When we last left Southfork Ranch, Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo) was about to confess to Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) that her brother Tommy sent an email to his betrothed at the time Elena (Jordana Brewster) saying he wasn’t going to show up for their wedding. DALLAS jam-packs so much material in its 45-minute telecasts, and “Truth and Consequences” is no different. It’s amazing how much is covered in such […]Read On »

TV Review: DALLAS – Season 1 – “The Last Hurrah”

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Taylor Hamra Director: Marc Roskin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 27th, 2012 The revamping of DALLAS can be summed up in one phrase – if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! Like in the first version of DALLAS, this DALLAS is one full of interwoven subplots and drama, including – the best part – cliffhangers! While John Ross (Josh Henderson) and J.R. (Larry Hagman) conspire to steal Southfork from right underneath Bobby (Patrick Duffy), J. R. schemes to cut […]Read On »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writers: Bruce Rasmussen Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 20th, 2012 It takes no time at all for all the power playing and scheming to begin on DALLAS, just like where it left off 20 years ago. Quickly things become apparent that although nearly two decades have passed, very little has changed. There are a few new faces but the game is the same and oh what a game to be played. J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) confronts […]Read On »
