The cast of Dallas reunited for the show’s 40th anniversary
April 2nd, 2018 under Dallas, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

On April 2, 1978, television changed forever when a little show called Dallas made its debut. No one knew what to make of it, and expected it to just ride off into the sunset after 5 episodes. As we know it did not. In fact 3 years after it premiered, around 90 million people tuned in to find out Who Shot JR?

An event we still talk about until this day. What made the series so special? Charlene Tilton said on Good Morning America today, “Just the chemistry we have off camera really came through…It wasn’t fake, it was real.” Patrick Duffy said he used to leave for work early just so he could get there and play with his coworkers.

The show was also a trailblazer on taboo topics like breast cancer and mastectomies, coming out and alcoholism. Linda Gray says she still gets letters from people today that tell her they got help for their alcoholism because of her storyline from the primetime soap. Tilton shared this tidbit about the coming out storyline, back then they were not allowed to say gay, so they had to say homosexual.

As we know, 5 years ago we lost the heart and soul of the show and they revealed how Larry Hagman was nothing like his villainous character JR. His TV wife said that he used to hate that she would tell everyone how lovely he was. Why? Because the viewers were supposed to hate him, not love him like we do. Talking about loving, Grey also revealed that he was also a bad boy because he used to eat onions or peanut butter before their kissing scenes.

Back in 1985, Bobby Ewing was killed off of the show, only to return a year later. His death was explained as a dream and the viewers did not like it. So much so that Steve Kanaly says they lost about 10% of their audience because of it.

They ended their reunion interview with one very important question, are they up for another revival of the show? Yes, they are! In this day and age, what are the networks waiting for? There is obviously a desire for it because why else would be tuning in for Empire and Dynasty? We want to watch crazy rich families go crazy and no family can out-crazy the Ewings.


Who’s the hottest MILF in this photo?
September 27th, 2015 under Dallas, Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell, Rachel Bilson, The OC. [ Comments: none ]

Kristen Bell, Jessica Alba, Jordana Brewster and Rachel Bilson all came out to support Alliance of Moms and the four of them are some pretty sexy moms. Proving just because you have a child, doesn’t mean you lose your looks.
They are all equally MILFable; so I can’t pick one, can you?


Dallas’ well ran dry at TNT
October 3rd, 2014 under Dallas. [ Comments: none ]

It has been a bad week for Dallas. First the first case of Ebola was diagnosed in the city and today TNT made the mistake of cancelling the show. Dallas was just getting good and I think could’ve done so much more if given the chance. Now we won’t know who JR had a daughter with because of the cancellation.
Hopefully the producers will shop it around to another network like Lifetime, which, I think, was always a better fit for the nighttime soap.

Dallas’ season premiere is on fire!
August 18th, 2014 under Dallas. [ Comments: none ]

Dallas is back on TNT tonight at 9p and you don’t want to miss what happens.
The episode picks up where the season finale left off with South Fork on fire. Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) are trying to save everyone before it is too late. They are all rushed to the hospital and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) is unconscious. She isn’t the only one brought in conscious, Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) is near death after what looks like a suicide attempt. Will they survive?
By the end of the episode someone will admit that the fire was their fault, but was it? We will find out who destroyed the landmark. Also by the credits; someone will die, a couple will split up and the season’s plotline is set up. And it looks like it is going to be a hot hot hot season.


BTWF roles: Patrick Duffy on Man From Atlantis
May 5th, 2014 under Before They Were Famous, Dallas. [ Comments: none ]

Before Patrick Duffy was dealing with scary people like his brother, JR Ewing, in Dallas, he was dealing with scary monsters on Man From Atlantis. He looks the same now as he did when he was 28 in that 1978 episode.
