I’m slightly upset that “Bachelor in Paradise” is over. But the fact that a good season of “Dancing with the Stars” is upon us, has me really excited!
Feliz lunes, and welcome back from another too short weekend. Am I right?
Everyone wondered if “Dallas” could survive J.R.’s death. The epic, satisfying, downright fun finale serves as the show’s argument that a third season is not only a possibility but a necessity. As the writers had no idea whether the show would be back, the two-hour episode wraps up enough stories that it could serve as […]
This week, ‘Dallas” tells the story of two cousins. One is a bitter, mean drunk. The other is a stand up guy who will do whatever it takes to help his friends and family. The twist is that this week the good cousin is John Ross (Josh Henderson) and the bad boy is Christopher. This […]
Forget Southfork and Ewing Energy. Ninety percent of this week’s episode of “‘Dallas,” ‘Guilt and Innocence” took place in the hospital. That turned out to make for a pretty dull episode, with precious little wit and wisdom. It’s no coincidence that J.R.’s memory and will was barely a factor. Let’s hope that next week refocuses […]
Imagine the last words of J.R. Ewing, one of television’s smartest, wittiest, most memorable characters of all time. Imagine if you had to craft his final scene from leftover footage and looped dialogue after Larry Hagman’s sudden death. That’s the task the writers of “Dallas” faced in this week’s episode, “The Furious and the Fast.” […]
This week’s episode of “Dallas,” “False Confessions,” managed to make the Ewings look like the Huxtables. Compared to the Rylands and the Barnes, they are downright functional. With the exception of Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) being conned into marrying a woman who was technically his cousin, but was not a biological relative, none of them harbor […]
J.R. (Larry Hagman) and his eyebrows were in rare form this week on “Dallas.” It’s as if he knew that he didn’t have much longer and had to recite every last one of the quips that he had rattling around inside his head for our entertainment. His wit and wisdom this week includes the phrases […]
The death of Larry Hagman hangs over this season of “Dallas“, to paraphrase a quip from the premiere, like mistletoe. Before the episode starts, the cast appears as themselves to acknowledge that this will be both a bittersweet viewing experience and exactly the way Hagman would want to be remembered. So let’s all drink a […]
John Ross (Josh Henderson) uses a sex tape to force someone to make a deal; Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) continues her run for Governor; Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) tries to get his marriage to Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo) annulled; J.R. (Larry Hagman) conspires with his son to take over Ewing Energies; and Ann (Brenda Strong) gets shocking […]
