I use to live out by SF when thew show first started . And it was huge . The first year was the best . When Jock was alive . And i will never forget all the bumper stickers saying..” Who shot JR ?”
The show got really out there after that . Is Jock still alive after all ? Bobby coming back after a bad dream of Pam’s . Ms Ellie being replaced ……But JR held the show together . I loved to watch JR . And in this most recent series . Hagman was at his best . Ann~ ” JR , In my wild imagination i would never exspect you you go so low !” JR ~ Well Ann you need to work on your expectations ” So JR ,lol
I think the tiff between Ann And Bobby will grow . But the Ewing family itself will pull close together . Work together .
I read that Duffy said he is the only cast member that knows what the note from JR says . And knows the end . They had to tell him for him to act the part . Because Bobby really does know .
Duffy concluded saying it made his mouth drop !
Thanks Andy . I thought your review was fine .

Well, JR knew about the son he had with Cally, but she never KNEW he knew. And under the circumstances, showing up with another of his bastards likely would have caused an ill-timed uproar, lol.

Hard to understand why Cally was at the funeral without her and JR’s son, they did have a son together…where was he?

Cally and JR had a son. Cally did not know that JR knew about the child. (Per the original episodes). I understand a scene was cut were Cally dropped a bomb shell at JR’s funeral/wake (probably regarding their daughter).

Last night’s episode made me WANT to watch the original Dallas, but I only started watching at the end of last season. I work at DISH with a woman who has seen every single episode of Dallas ever made, and she thinks it helps the newer episodes to make more sense, but it’s not absolutely necessary to enjoy the new series. All fourteen of the original seasons of Dallas are available on DISH’s Blockbuster @Home, so I added them all to my queue. I love that they don’t have late fees or due dates because I want to be able to take my time with each disc!

My nine year old daughter has watched every episode of the original Dallas with me. We have them all on DVD. Our quality time is watching Dallas on Monday nights. She knows more about Dallas than most adults.

I agree with lennieross. I think it’s pretty lame that the author could not even be bothered to acquaint himself with the original show before feeling qualified to write about the current one. ‘I’m only 25′ has got to be the most ridiculous excuse I’ve ever heard! Go on Youtube or go out and buy the boxset. I’ve seen every one and I was only 2 when it started!

I think it was either Pamela or Cliff Barnes who did this

We get to live the whole “who shot JR” scandal again. It’s the 2.0 version. And thank you for educating the readers on who Chris’s mother is…. Fact-checking is so essential… Even with fictional characters.

I just wish they would occasionally acknowledge that Chris & John Ross ARE biological cousins, just not on the Ewing side. For some reason they seem to imply Chris is totally unrelated to anyone.

I’m glad Cliff had decency enough to call Chris a Barnes last night. For an awful moment I was sure he was going to say, “This is between the Barnes and the Ewings, and you are NEITHER.”

My only real beef with the episode was the presence of Emma and Harris. I dislike them anyway, but here it felt like a MAJOR intrusion. They should not have appeared.

Who said anything about his birth mother? I though Bump just said mother. Pam was the only mother Christopher knew. Nobody said anything about J.R. Looking for Christopher’s “birth” mother. If Kristen were still alive, after drowning in the Ewing swimming pool, that would be as crazy as Bobby showing up in Pam’s shower after being run down by a car. Then again… :)

Kristen was Christopher’s birth mother, but Pam and Bobby adopted him. He never knew Kristen, she drowned in the SouthFork pool when he was less than a year old. What bothers me is that Sue Ellen doesn’t acknowledge that he is her biological nephew. Along with his birth father, she had to sign legal papers to allow the adoption.

I think she doesn’t acknowledge that she is his real Aunt out of respect for Bobby. It was never mentioned anywhere that Chris know Kristian was his actual mother.

y: As a Dallas “Lifer” who watched every one of the 160+ episodes of the “original” series (and THX to a Xmas gift is in the middle of Season 4 rewatching them) and every one of the episodes of this amazing gift from Cynthia Cidre and TNT of the “new” series since June of 2012, I can say, unequivocally, that tonight’s episode was the BEST-WRITTEN and BEST ACTED of them all EVER since 1979. From the “Tapslike”, or as you called it, “down tempo”, theme song; to the reappearances of Gary (3rd episode), Ray and Lucy; the cool and flawlessly-delivered cameos by current Dallas Mayor, Mike Rawlings, the indomitable, Jerry Jones and iconic Mark Cuban (equalling his excellent recent turn as himself in “Necessary Roughness”); the added treat of the (hardly “unknown”) superb Latin Superstar, Kate del Castillo, late of the superhit novela, “La Reina del Sur, as the Mexicana police Sergeant: the “throwdown” at the Petroleum Club sparked by the ever-vile, Cliff Barnes; the heart-wrenching eulogies by old and new cast members at JR’s gravesite, obviously fueled by their deep affection for Mr. Hagman and their profound sense of loss at his passing, culminating in the TRULY COMPELLING work of Pat Duffy in the bedroom scene opposite Brenda Strong, soooo REAL AND RAW as to conjure up memories of empassioned rage enacted by Hollywood legends like Marlon Brando and Al Pacino (which I had to stop and rewatch on the spot), this episode is one for the ages! And Andy, unlike “Lennie Ross” below, who scolded you for not having watched any of the 160+ “original” episodes, I WELCOME you to our extended “Dallas Family” and THANK YOU for your super-positive comments about this historic episode! THANKS AGAIN to the amazing Cynthia Cidre for her wonderful screenplay, Mr. Rubin for his spot-on direction and to TNT and their sponsers (whose products I am and will continue religiously to purchase. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE MYSTERY OF WHO KILLED JR TO UNFOLD! RIP Mr. Hagman and a deep and heartfelt THANK YOU for all the stress-relief you’ve provided me and my Family and friends over the past 4 decades.

Phenomenal episode. Very emotional, especially the funeral itself.

I was so hoping it was Cliff who Christopher punched out. Sure he’s an old man, but he totally had it coming.

Cathy Podewell looked amazing…like it had been 10 years instead of 20+. Too bad she didn’t bring the now grown son she had from J.R.

The main event….Pam Ewing. I cannot wait to see how this unfolds, even without Victoria Principle.

I’m sorry, but how can you write anything intelligible about Dallas if you have not seen even one episode of the original? BTW, you have several spelling errors/type-os in your blog. Sue Ellen’s speech was emotive and she didn’t say she was “pretty drunk” she said she might be a little bit drunk. If you’re going to blog about television shows, you might want to watch them more carefully and do your research. To have not watched ONE of the original shows? Shame on you.

I hate commenters like you. I counted ONE typo in my story. And I’m 25 years old, do you really think I’d have seen the original series? If watching the original was a requirement for enjoying the new series, the show’s viewership would be even lower than it has been this season.

If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. One day when you are older, you will learn to appreciate criticism… It forces you to raise the bar… Or quit. If you want to be a writer, then do your research. I’m sure you could download an original episode or record one on your dvr. It was only one of the most popularttv shows of all time. I’m sure it’s readily available. That’s your homework for this week. Watch the original who shot JR episode. And if you choose to criticize me or my comments or find fault in my spelling or type-os in this, be advised that I am writing on my iPhone and your comment screen does not enlarge and the font is light gray on white. So I am not going to strain my significantly older and wiser eyes to comb through any errors my iPhone caused. You can get the just of my comment. Best of luck to you in your writing career.

Wouldn’t it be funny if JR turns out to be chisthpher’s father nd he and John Ross are brothers.
