I grew up watching Dallas every Friday night, followed by Falcon Crest. Angela Channing was never quite as sinister as JR Ewing, so I usually fell asleep during the latter, with my parents dragging me to bed.
Even though I can’t imagine I understood much of the show, I always enjoyed watching the Ewings and the Barnes duke it out.
Today I’m blessed with the miracle of channel 46 – a.k.a. SoapNet. The months after I was laid off from my first job I saw the entire run of Knot’s Landing.
Tonight’s 11:00pm (central time) airing of the Dallas 2nd season finalle was another blessing – as the original viewing of the “Who Shot JR” episode was on the air when I was but one year old.
God, thank you for Dallas.
I was doing a little research and came across a wonderful site – UltimateDallas.com. It’s got everything Dallas-related you can ever want for. They even have video clips, including the JR shooting scene. And did you know? There’s talk of a Dallas film for the big screen by the show’s original creator, David Jacobs?!
Where the fuck is Bobby???
aw shuks – the happy couple
