So last night was the two hour (i.e. two back to back episode) premier of the “Dallas” reboot on TNT. Now I have a confession to make . . . I never watched the original! In part I was fairly young when it aired. I mean I know what the show is/was, I know of the huge “Who shot J.R.” story, and the shower sequence . . . but I never watched it. Fortunately my partner John did, and he’s basically why I’m watching it now. That and nothing else is on as it’s summer.
I will say, I loved the pilot! John Ross III is such an ass! I could definitely see them trying to play up a “Who Shot John Ross” storyline . . . but I don’t think they should pull that card just yet.
Who sent the email to Elena breaking off the wedding between her and Christopher? Both Christopher and John Ross said they did not do it. It seems obvious that John Ross was always in love with her . . . which makes me think either J.R. did it, or his mother did it, in order to try and make him happy. I hope Bobby didn’t do it!
Will Bobby decide to not sell South Fork before it’s too late and J.R. and John Ross end up battling over it? I loved the twist at the end of the episode where J.R. found out that John Ross was coning him and trying to get South Fork for himself.
I loved the whole 2 hours and 20 minutes I have to say. There was so much in here that I can’t even begin to recap it all. Oh, the only thing I just can’t accept is that Jesse Metcalf is some geological genius! I still see him as Miguel on “Passions” or John on “Desperate Housewives!”
