Many people grew up watching the original Dallas and were a little hesitant on the remake of it because the failure of many classic show remakes. Well let us be the first ones to tell you that this is not the case with the return of Dallas. The producers of the new Dallas have done a phenomenal job on the remake and seems like they haven’t left anything out. They haven’t forgotten their history. They’re reveling in it and mining it for oil and so much more.
The show was impressive for the way it combined members of the original cast with younger actors draws without quite seeming as cynical as a J.R. Ewing business deal. The show is not a “reboot”: It is, instead, a continuation of the 1978-1991 CBS soap created by David Jacobs.The new Dallas has been reconceived by co-executive producer Cynthia Cidre in a canny manner. Instead of pitting veteran stars Larry Hagman (J.R.) and Patrick Duffy (J.R.’s brother Bobby) against a younger generation, characters form natural, if devious, alliances. They all team up in a very electrifying show.What do they all want? Why, control of Southfork, of course. On of the best Texas properties is and always has been the reason Dallas exists. It’s the site of oil rigs and horse riding for the rich oil tycoons. In 2012, owning land, even if all you plan to do with it is strip it of its natural grandeur or sell it off to suckers, still works as an object of desire.
We were deffinately impressed by the new Dallas and recommend going out and renting the DVD of the first season because the return for the second is promising to be even better.
