I know! It's a totally melodramatic night time soap and I am so hooked. The original came out in 1978...I was ten. I wasn't originally allowed to watch it, but the next year, I begged and pleaded and my mom relented because it really wasn't that much different than the soaps my girl friends were watching after school and I showed no interest in those. The show ran until 1991 and I think I actually watched it most of the time, even in college....Going out Friday night? Watch Dallas while you're getting ready. But most of my memories associated with the show are also tied to my
And now, TNT brought it back...all of it. And that man everyone loves to hate? Well he's back too and he's got some competition...from his son. This show made me so happy and nostalgic last night. Car Guy and I even forced the boys to have some quality time with their parents (ahem) and forced them to watch it too. Much to their surprise, they actually enjoyed it...I'm pretty sure they didn't understood the word devious until they saw good ol' JR in action. I'm thinking they might watch it with us again and I have to give everyone involved with the show a bit of credit...they didn't try to reinvent the wheel, they just added a few new spokes and so far it looks like it's going to roll along just fine (said with a deep Texas drawl.) If you were ever a fan of the show, then I recommend you check it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Linda and I grew up, went to college, got married and had babies. She lives in another state, but we still keep in touch. I emailed her and asked if she was going to watch the new version that came on last night. I can picture the smile on her face so perfectly when she responded...."If I can stay up that late." OK, so maybe some things have changes just a little bit. I wonder what kind of eye shadow she wears now....
