article imageDallas continues: JR and clan return in a sequel

While some of us remember wondering who shot J.R., and how on earth Bobby returned from the dead, we now have the opportunity to watch a continuation of this popular series.
The first series of "Dallas" premiered on CBS in 1978, a time when the economy was down, much like today.
Despite a depressed economy, people happily sat in front of their televisions to watch a super-rich oil family and their troubles and woes. The soap opera ran for an amazing 13 years.
And now a new season has begun on TNT. This is not a reprise, or a re-do. The story will continue from where it left off.
We get to see J.R. (Larry Hagman) and Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) yet again (now somewhat aged!). Linda Gray returns as J.R.'s long-suffering, alcoholic wife, Sue-Ellen.

The cast welcomes newcomers Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Brenda Strong, Julie Gonzalo and Josh Henderson, for yet another season of backstabbing and scheming, and trying to take over Southfork and the oil business.
Those who remember the old series will enjoy seeing a doddering J.R., living in an assisted living center, and apparently dying to get back into the game.
Brenda Strong, while not really replacing the original Victoria Principal, apparently has a good chemistry with Patrick Duffy as Bobby's wife, Ann. Duffy himself is still energetic in the new series, but is coping with a cancer diagnosis.
So far, the reviews are good, so get ready for weeks of intrigue!
