TV REVIEW: 'Dallas' - Season 2 Episode 1 - Business As Usual For Ewings, But With A Giant Stetson-Shaped Shadow Over It
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
'Dallas's return brought the usual catalogue of threats, revelations and poolside romances, but this second series of the reboot has a giant Stetson-shaped shadow hanging over it. It was business as usual for both generations of Ewings… the saintly Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) desperately wooing racing driver Ricky Rudd - I kid you not - to drive on his beloved methane. Can't help agreeing with John Ross (Josh Henderson) that this seems an unlikely way for Dallas businessmen to make money. Meanwhile, Bobby was reeling from the news that his wife Anne had a secret daughter. Of course she did. You could tell furrowed Patrick Duffy was raging within at this treachery. He even moved his hand out of her grip for a whole scene. More...

Denette Wilford: 'Dallas' Season 2': The Worst Casting Ever?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
I've been a fan of Judith Light long before Tony Danza was hollering "Angela!" around the Bower household. My mom would record ABC's daytime lineup (you know, back when there was a daytime lineup) from Ryan's Hope to General Hospital, so I became very familiar with One Life to Live. Light's portrayal of Karen Wolek -- a bored housewife who ventures into a life of prostitution -- was multifaceted and heartbreaking. I was way too young to be watching such serious fare, but her courtroom scenes were some of the few my mother didn't record over on our trusty Betamax, so I didn't watch them until I was in my tweens. But even watching them years later, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. On One Life, Who's the Boss?, Ugly Betty, Law & Order: SVU and loads of TV movies in between, Light has proved she's a force to be reckoned with. Sadly, though, even she's not good enough to sell her latest role on Dallas. Sorry, Ms. Light, but this has nothing to do with you; Dallas' ...

Lots Of Love For Southfork Ranch
Huffington Post - about 4 years
PARKER, Texas -- The white two-story home with stately pillars overlooking a green Texas pasture where longhorns roam is instantly recognizable: This is the power seat of television's famous Ewing family. Tourists from around the world have been flocking to Southfork Ranch since the early years of the classic series "Dallas," which ran from 1978 to 1991, and the ranch is only getting more popular. With the premiere last June of a new "Dallas" series, the number of visitors at Southfork has doubled from 150,000 annually to more than 300,000, according to Jim Gomes, general manager of the Southfork Ranch & Hotel and vice president of Forever Resorts, which owns the property. "We are obviously thrilled the new fans love Southfork as much as the original fans of `Dallas,'" said Gomes. The new show starts its second season Monday on the TNT cable channel. The recent death of Larry Hagman, who starred as conniving Texas oilman J.R. Ewing in both the original seri ...

Dallas Remembers Larry Hagman With a New Season 2 Mystery

Dallas Remembers Larry Hagman With a New Season 2 Mystery Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Updated 7:56 am, Tuesday, January 22, 2013 Two months after Larry Hagman's November 23 death, the Dallas cast past and present has assembled at the city's swanky Petroleum Club to shoot an epic, drama-filled memorial for his legendary J.R. Ewing. Josh Henderson, who plays J.R.'s son John Ross, thinks the man he called Pops was behind a glitch he experienced filming a call between their characters days after Hagman's death (a strange sound came through the phone and lingered). Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) says she's been visited by Hagman via her car radio, which has twice played Frank Sinatra's "Always," the song Hagman was singing with his daughter just before he passed. At a time when the cast and crew should have been celeb ...

Vicente's thugs beat up John Ross and gave him this chilling message: "Tell your uncle, next time he better get Vicente’s oil or next time we kill you." Meanwhile, John Ross' mother, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) bribed the medical examiner to rule Veronica's death a suicide, and got her son off the hook.

Music Review: Alison Wedding - This Dance

Music Review: Alison Wedding - This Dance Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2012 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 04:54 a.m., Wednesday, July 18, 2012 First of all there is the question of exactly what cubby hole to squeeze her into. The elegance of her songwriting would be the envy of any of the bevy of aspiring singer-songwriters. Built on the personification of regret, it not only illustrates the singer's literary prowess, it (along with "Hey, Stranger," which follows) shows off her traditional jazz affinities. "Let Me Pretend" is a nicely literate breakup song that looks askance at the clichés of love songs as attempts to avoid real emotion. Included in the large array of musicians participating on the various tracks are Michael League on electric bass and a variety of other instruments, Zach Brock and Maria Im on violin, Josh Hen ...

The New 'Dallas': Sex, Scandal, And US Energy Policy
Business Insider - over 4 years
When Dallas was first launched in 1978, it always covered oil, and, later, a little bit about the environment. But really it was about sex, betrayal, and the infighting that came with running Ewing Oil, the company that had made their family rich. In the end, two brothers – J.R. and Bobby Ewing – fought over whether to conserve their sprawling family ranch, Southfork. The plot line was an effective analogy not just for the oil business, but for all business. It provided a voyeuristic – and playfully sensationalized – glimpse into the glitzy lives of those who succeeded by it and a fantastically Reaganesque view on what it took to climb to the top of an industry on the backs of your competitors, Texas style. But the world was different then. Oil was a near singular symbol of business wealth in the U.S. Texas was on top of its game. And environmentalism was still seen by big business as a fringe movement. Today Big Oil remains as powerful as ever, but wealth, technology and indust ...

ProPublica: The New 'Dallas': Sex, Scandal and Energy Policy!
Huffington Post - over 4 years
By Abrahm Lustgarten, ProPublica. Did the fracking debate dredge up 'Dallas' -- the redux -- or was this soap opera's resurgence just another convenient mirror in which to reflect how central the nation's debate over energy has now become in our culture? Either way, the show's creators seem to have found the decades-old plot so evocative of the evolving contemporary debate over oil and gas drilling and the environment that they couldn't resist resurrecting it. Perhaps they should have. When Dallas was first launched in 1978, it always covered oil, and, later, a little bit about the environment. But really it was about sex, betrayal, and the infighting that came with running Ewing Oil, the company that had made their family rich.

Published 06:57 a.m., Wednesday, June 13, 2012 On ABC, where daytime soaps as legendary as All My Children have been unceremoniously retired and General Hospital hangs on by a thread, the lurid nighttime potboiler Revenge was last season's breakout guilty pleasure - and has been rewarded the plum Sunday night time period vacated by Desperate Housewives. Taking over Revenge's Wednesday slot is one of the fall's most buzzed-about pilots: the delicious Nashville, a country-fied "All About Eve" pitting veteran diva Connie Britton against scheming crossover upstart Hayden Panettiere.

Maureen Ryan: 'Dallas' Review: TNT Revives The Drama And J.R. Revives His Greed
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Just as it makes sense for Netflix, the home of many kinds of niche fare, to fund a new season of "Arrested Development," it was smart of TNT, a very mainstream cable network, to revisit to the "Dallas" franchise. The network and the show, as evidenced by the pleasingly cheesy reboot that debuts with a two-hour episode 9 p.m. ET Wednesday, are a perfect fit. TNT is all about satisfying most of the people most of the time, and the channel does a good job of churning out the kind of crowd-pleasing, reliably decent, not-too-challenging fare that the networks used to air two or three decades ago. That's not a dig; it's just a statement of fact to say that when you tune in to a TNT program, you know what you're getting and it'll probably be reasonably competent (which is more than I can say for a fair number of broadcast network shows, especially in the summer). So for TNT to air a new version of the once-iconic "Dallas" makes a great deal of sense, even if I predict ...
