Can we take a minute here to discuss how awesome Dallas (the tv series) is?
As I previously mentioned, one of my best childhood memories includes spending my Friday nights eating steak with a cream cheese based sauce while watching Dallas with my family (which really get to the root of my fatty foods and tvholicness). In the beginning I would just focus on shoveling food in my mouth and then run off to play with my Barbie dolls after I was done eating. But one night I didn’t leave. I remember my mom asking me if something was the matter and I responded with, “No, this looks interesting. I want to stay and watch.” They were so excited. But I was very young and looking back on it all I remember was JR was a bad man and somebody shot him in the series finale (very irritating!), Sue Ellen was married to one of the Ewing Brothers, they lived on a ranch and were very rich, and I thought this one actor was SOOO hot and was excited when he followed Bobby Ewing to Step by Step where he played Cody.
When the new Dallas series premiered I was really excited but I didn’t really want to watch it without first watching the earlier version. And that’s when I realized that there was a lot of the storyline that I missed – probably most of the 14-year-long series, especially since it started several years before I was born. So I started watching it. AND IT’S AWESOME!!!! Though I constantly forget that this takes place in the late 1970s and keep thinking, why don’t they just called so and so on their cell phone. But seriously, if you haven’t watched it – do it! Though I’m only on Season 2 so what do I know?
Although, there is already so much backstabbing, cheating, and implied (again – this is the late 1970s) sex (which is why it’s AWESOME) to make me think – what the hell were my parents doing letting me watch this stuff as a little kid?
And one last thought: Patrick Duffy, the early years, was H-O-T!!!!
