How many of you remember Dallas the first time around? I'm showing my age now by admitting that I certainly do. I was about eight years old when it was first aired on UK TV back in the late 70's and I'm pretty sure my Mum wouldn't have let me watch it at the time due to its adult content plus the fact that it was full to the brim of power, wealth, sex ... and glorious extravagance, so not really suitable viewing for an eight year old. However, as I grew so did Dallas and the Ewing family had no limits to what they would do in the pursuit of power, wealth and revenge.
Dallas was full to the brim of cheese, drama, big hair, shoulder pads, extra marital affairs, murder, alcoholism and dodgy dealings. Compulsive weekend viewing, Dallas became famous for its cliffhangers...especially the 'Who Shot JR' scenario.
And now it is back in all its glory with some of the original actors too. On UK TV screens from tomorrow night, I can not wait! Essential viewing for me.
