My New Guilty Pleasure: Dallas

Are you all watching the new Dallas on TNT?? If you're not you should be. It's filled with drama and good looking people, so it's right up my alley.


Did you ever watch the original Dallas?  Dallas was about the Ewing Family a wealthy Texas family that worked in the oil and cattle ranching business and the Ewing family home South Fork Ranch.  I remember years ago spending the night at my grandparents house and my grandma letting us stay up late to watch Dallas. I used to get so excited just hearing the theme song. 

The new Dallas is a continuation of the old Dallas, not to be confused with a re-make, so quite a few of the old characters are back! So far after the first 3 episodes I am totally hooked.   Many of the same schemes and elements of the original show still exist so I can't wait to see what happens!

Here are the characters in no particular order:

 Christopher Ewing played by Jessie Metcalfe
(adopted son of Bobby & Pam Ewing)

John Ross Ewing played by Josh Henderson
(son of JR and Sue Ellen Ewing)

Elena Ramos played by Jordana Brewster
(daughter of the Ewing family cook)

 
Rebecca Sutter played by Julie Gonzalo
(Christopher Ewing's fiance)

These 4 above are the new younger generation of the show and then the below cast anchor the older cast.


Bobby Ewing played by Patrick Duffy
(son of Jock and Miss Ellie Ewing and JR's younger brother)

J.R. Ewing played by Larry Hagman
(son of Jock and Miss Ellie Ewing and Bobby's older scheming oil baron brother)

Sue Ellen Ewing played by Linda Gray
(J.R's ex-wife and John Ross' Mom)

Ann Ewing played by Brenda Strong
(Bobby's 3rd wife is the story they're using)

For the full Ewing Family Tree click  here. The main 3 characters to return to the show are JR, Bobby, and Sue Ellen Ewing played by there original actors listed above.  On the original show Bobby's wife was Pamela but rumor is that the actress who played her, Victoria Principal, had no desire to return to the show so they just made Bobby re-married and there have been a few mentions of her here and there where they imply she just up and left.  A few more characters from the original show have made appearances since it started 2 weeks ago. 

Have you watched it? What do you think? Do you recognize that almost half the cast has started on Desperate Housewives at some point (Ha!)?

  5. I'm very excited sharing this amazing testimony about how i save my marriage and get my husband back today, My name is Becky Miller , I live in Los Angeles, California, I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{salvationlovetemple@gmail.comm}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelltemple.weebly.com/. } if you have any problem contact Dr Sam ,{ salvationlovetemple@gmail.com }, thanks you Dr Sam, i will always be testifying about your good work.
