Log in to Reply david46208 June 30, 2012 Dallas has all the right elements that a primetime serial needs. Especially when it is going back to the tried and true 80′s soap style. So it deserves a second season. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 June 30, 2012 This is awesome news!!!! I love the new show and hope it continues to many years to come. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 30, 2012 As I said on another thread, I want to send Cynthia Cidre flowers. :beer: Log in to Reply ER Writer June 30, 2012 fab u lous! so happy!

The Daytime Soaps could take a lesson or two from the Reboot.

This is great news … Log in to Reply keanna June 30, 2012 Great, it’s deserving!!! :beer: :beer: Log in to Reply bnt83 June 30, 2012 That’s great! They need to order a full season of 20+ episodes. This season will be far too short! Log in to Reply The_Moustache June 30, 2012 are Ray & Lucy a couple now? because their scenes so far have been … creepy-feely. did they say “F IT, IT’S 2012″ and decide to re-start their “relationship”?? Log in to Reply soapfan616 June 30, 2012 Good soap news!!!! Look what can happen when a smart writer re-boots a show with a new generation of young characters who are attached to the show’s core families, traditions and institutions. There’s just the right amount of sexiness and relationships, no matter how dysfunctional, seem believable because there’s an equality of power and brains given to the men AND the women. If I didn’t know better, I’d think a woman was behind this re-boot. Oh wait… Are you paying attention, General Hospital? Of course not! Congratulations to Dallas and to soap fans who are tuning in to soap done right. Who says a popular 80′s soap with a huge fan base can’t be wooed back to try it again? Do it right and soap fans will come! Log in to Reply Cyberologist June 30, 2012 I’m not a bit surprised but there is always that possibility of not being renewed… interesting they just did it right off the bat no waiting or hem-hawing around… the writing (and execution) is ‘EXCELLENT’ and I can’t help myself but every time I watch (and shows like it with great writing) Why couldn’t daytime soaps have storytelling this good? Why? I mean they have the same ingredients…if DALLAS 2012 came on every day; I still believe the writing would hold up. They put out good story & weave the old/new generation seamlessly where I’m interested in all the stories on the table….that scene with Cliff Barnes & JR brought back their history in one foul swoop for the new generation powerful, “I will never stop fighting for what is rightfully mine.” I thought JR would yank Miss Ellie’s pearl’s back from SueEllen…LoL ….Great news… Log in to Reply marknsprmo June 30, 2012 congrats! Looking forward to what comes next. I think Gary and Val and their kids could add alot to the show. Having two brothers for JR to fight would make it a more fair fight! Log in to Reply joelcerio July 2, 2012 This is not a reboot! It is a continuation of the original show. There were 13 seasons of Dallas and this is Season 14, resuming after a 21-year hiatus. The same characters/actors (J.R., Sue Ellen, Bobby) appear, along with their grown-up children. A reboot would mean starting the story over at the very beginning, with different actors. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 2, 2012 The scene this week with Cliff, Sue Ellen, and JR I watched 3 times. And that’s no bullshit.
