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 »

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 »

Stars: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Brenda Strong, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo Writer: Cynthia Cidre Director: Michael M. Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 13, 2012 It wouldn’t be DALLAS without backstabbing, betrayal and blackmail but this is ridiculous. As the depths of the characters’ relationships are slowly revealed in “Hedging Your Bets” (the second of the two hour series premiere) we see one twist after another, which begs the question, is anyone being truthful? J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) suddenly comes out of his comatose state when his son John Ross (Josh […]Read On »

Robin Network: TNT, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 13, 2012 Growing up watching the original DALLAS series and just hearing the theme music play again for the newly rebooted DALLAS, I have to admit it put a smile on my face. Back in the ‘80s I anxiously waited ‘til Friday every week to get my Ewing family drama fix and the thunder of the theme song booming through my TV speakers only accelerated my excitement. It […]Read On »

Sue Ellen Ewing is one of television’s great survivor characters. Let’s face it, to make it through eleven seasons of DALLAS, which ran on CBS from 1978 through 1991, plus two telefilms (1996’s DALLAS: J.R. RETURNS and 1998’s DALLAS: WAR OF THE EWINGS), to say nothing of marriage to Larry Hagman’s infamous J.R. Ewing, there’s nothing else she could be. Linda Gray, the actress who so indelibly played Sue Ellen, now finds herself returning to the role yet again in TNT’s revival/continuation of DALLAS, which premieres tonight. In the new edition, developed by executive producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael Robin, […]Read On »

The big question when TNT announced they were bringing back the iconic 1980s soap opera DALLAS a weekly series, was whether it would continue to mythology previously established or do its own thing. At TNT’s TCA press tour, Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), explains that it’s “not a remake or a reboot, but a continuation of the Ewing family.” Executive producer Cynthia Cidre who developed the new incarnation emphasizes this mandate, which is why the new series not only focuses on the next generation of Ewings but brings back […]Read On »
