I forgot about that. It would also be great if they could get the man who played JR’s oldest son James…or at least mention him.

I agree Sean. One thing Larry was always right about that show. He said that even though the show had been off the air for 20+ years, the fan base was always there. He was right about that. I’m glad he lived long enough to see it happen

Yes i am very much looking forward to it especially now that Mandy and Cally are going to be apart of it. It’s sad because we know it’s not a fake funeral. He’s really gone. I hope TNT really uses these old characters well for the episode to give him a proper farewell. it would be great if it could do flashbacks too.

I watched most of the piliot episode and was not impressed. I guess I expected it to be more like the original series. Didn’t not watch any more episodes, but since so many of the original cast will be returning for the tribute to Larry Hagman, I will mark my calendar to also be in attendence.

Barbara, I wasn’t too impressed with the pilot episode either, but I kept watching and the show really got good. If there’s any way you can catch the first season, you should. I’m sure you will get hooked 😉

So Sad about Mr. Hagman’s passing. As for DALLAS, I will be very interested in seeing how things play out. Loved sesaon one and hope they can continue to sustain it.

These details are why the DALLAS reboot works for me. The show will have these new characters and plot lines and be different than the original, of course (it has to be)… but… this attention to the histories of the family and the core characters is important and appreciated by this fan.

We all will die some day, but some… like Larry Hagman and JR Ewing… you thought would go on forever. In a way, they do.

Go DALLAS!
