TV Watch: "Dallas" Is Back...!

Who knew the original nighttime soap from my youth would be back, in a big intelligent way, oh and it's in season deux...!

Yes, it's "Dallas" and in many ways, I think it's better than the original series. They took the older cast and story lines, and combined them with the new cast which equals - TNT - Turner Network Television.

Not that I want to give the story lines and characters away to the uninitiated....but it picks up with the offspring of the original Ewing clan...

With JR Ewing's (Larry Hagman) offspring, J.R. Ewing JR. (Josh Henderson) and Bobby Ewing's offspring Christopher Ewing (Jesse Matcalfe) ...facing off!

The lovely Jordanna Brewster (Elena Ramos) and Julie Gonzalo (Rebecca Sutter aka Krebs) join them as two of the hottest and smartest females on TV....

Also who would have guessed that the voice of "Desperate Housewives" Brenda Strong would show up in such a significant and strong role (no pun intended) as Bobby Ewing's (Patrick Duffy) wife.

Oh, and Hello Linda Gray as "Sue Ellen Ewing" or as "JR" says it..."Swellen" ...nice to see  you again.

We all know that the late great Larry Hagman has passed away. They will be including JR's funeral in the second season.

Cheers to the re-boot of "Dallas" lasting a spell.

Ride Em' Cowboy!
