‘Every Drop Has A Secret Buried Within!! The New Trailer For TNT’s DALLAS Sequel!!
This reunites Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Charlene Tilton and adds Jordana Brewster as potential love interest for a whole new horny generation of Ewings.
Showrunning on the new series is Cynthia Cidre, who created CBS’ poorly received 2007 “Dallas”-like primetime soap “Cane.”

Only if they could make it in more earnest tone like "Friday Night Lights". I have zero interest in pure soaps.

I liked it better when the trailer didn't work.

The letter writing campaigns, the petitions, the death threats, the hunger strikes finally paid off. My life's work has come to fruition! Your welcome America.

Who thought that there was a need for this? What happened to Victoria Principle?
Dec. 2, 2011, 6:30 a.m. CST
Herc, shouldn't it be LINDA GRAY? Erin Gray was in Buck Rogers - any self respecting geek would be able to tell the difference.

Dallas has changed so much since the show aired. Will these new douchenozzles be hanging at the Ghostbar? On some patio on Greenville Ave? Bubble babies need no more encouragement.

man i missed that shit. Back in the Day Dallas and Dynasty were must see tv. Bear in mind we only had 3 channels and no remote control. No internet or mobile phones... in this age of austerity and recession, will people really want to watch a the drama of the fabulously wealthy?
Dec. 2, 2011, 8:15 a.m. CST
Dallas worked in the age of conspicuous consumption (80s) - not such a good fit in the age of conscientious consumption
Good point mr_x_

It was all a dream, greenhorns!

The show began in the Late 70's- I wanna say 78? We were still feeling the effects of the horrible 1970's recession under Carter, and oil prices were skyrocketing....not unlike today. I say it's got a shot.
Dec. 2, 2011, 8:49 a.m. CST
Was watching without sound so that's about all I got out of it. That and I started looking for ''There Will Be Blood'' parallels to joke about when they struck oil, but I've got nothing. I was just barely old enough to watch ''Dallas''—and even to me the filming and cutting in this promo seems too, I dunno, hip, too modern. Wouldn't the majority of their intended audience want something a little more...Matlock-y? Slow-paced, a little more focused on the original cast as opposed to the slick young whippersnappers?
Dec. 2, 2011, 9:10 a.m. CST
Not Erin Grey. Lazy reporting.

looking at IMDB.. what the hell is Buck Rogers Begins !?!?!

Cane was a HUGE waste of a really good-looking and talented cast (Jimmy Smits, Polly Walker, Hector Elizondo, Nestor Carbonell, Rita Moreno, et al.). Had all the settings and feel of a great night-time soap and exactly none of the follow-through, so I'm not exactly whelmed that the creator of that handsome mess is the new show runner for such a venerable series. Then again, I blew the original run off after they flushed what I thought was a great season of the show away as "just a dream," so it's not like the bar is THAT high. I'll give it a shot, but I'm not real high on its chances.

That bodes well, Dallas rocked when it didn't give a shit and became almost a cartoon. I hope they'll have a young Barnes in there somewhere who was trained all his-her life to destroy the Ewings.

It is, I believe, going to be a web series by the producer behind the Star Trek: New Voyages web series. There is a teaser on youtube as well as this short sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YY0-lSg3-k I will give it a shot. Buck Rogers Begins, that is. I will probably tune in to the first episode of Dallas, but then quickly forget about it.

I think I am going to fucking puke. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hollywood is not capable of original thought anymore.

I initially thought this was a reboot of the series, but then when original cast members were attached, I thought it was a continuation? Now, after seeing on IMDB.com that the projects these actors pending jobs on that site, it shows Dallas as a 'movie', not a series. So it this a short TNT movie and if it does well, THEN they'll pick it up into a series again? Which is it???
Dec. 2, 2011, 11:31 a.m. CST
I LOVED the original show, mostly because of Larry Hagman's wicked, amazing performance as J.R.....Man, he was some kind of NASTY for the first five years.....but, as the show continued on past its prime, J.R. mellowed and became a likeable old rascal, who was better at telling one-liners than being vicious....And the supernatural aspects of the series finale, something they'd NEVER done before (a ripoff of It's A Wonderful Life) and the two reunion TV movies (which were mostly comedies) were disappointing.....Here's hoping the show makes J.R. (and, by extension, his son) as nasty as ever!

aw fuck off already.

I thought it was silly what was done with Pam. She crashed into a tanker truck and was either in a coma or something, then a year or so later she shows up in a darkened office confernece room (different actress) so Bobby couldn't see her disfigured face. I don't see why they couldn't bring Victoria Principal back now, after so much time they ought to have got the plastic surgery perfected. Really surprised they brought Charlene Tilton back (if true), I never thought Lucy added all that much to the series, plus, I thought most people thought Charlene was kind of a ditz in real life. I still think of how eerie the final episode with Joel Grey as the devil leading JR around showing him what an ass he has been, I really thought JR had killed himself in the final shot.

That's what I'm getting from these trailers. Those kids are going to get circles acted around them by the grown-ups in that cast.
Dec. 2, 2011, 5:23 p.m. CST
If I remember correctly, both John Ross and Christopher should be into their middle thirties by now. They look in their 20s in this show. Man, I remember when Charlene Tilton was the hottest of the hot. I am so old. I say this series last two weeks.
Dec. 2, 2011, 5:26 p.m. CST
Oh no, don't tax us, then we'll have to start firing people or quit creating jobs rather than spend less on ourselves!
Dec. 2, 2011, 5:56 p.m. CST
And NO, I'm not a douchebag. On the contrary! To love this show simply means to have real cojones!
Dec. 2, 2011, 7:25 p.m. CST
JR didn't actually blow his brains out in the final episode?
Dec. 2, 2011, 7:26 p.m. CST
And it's a soap about super rich people ... there are multiple billionaires on the show. Of course it's amazing from a quality standpoint. This will probably be crap. People will always love watching beautiful, rich people being bad ... it's the premise of a whole bunch of cable reality shows.

he's a real bad guy and he lives on a farm with his mommmmmm

So I guess I should start drilling for oil right?

Are there any rich people that do that in real life?
Dec. 3, 2011, 10:14 a.m. CST
Second: 'Cane' was okay, however it suffered from complete dullness. As does this trailer.
Dec. 3, 2011, 1:20 p.m. CST
I think actually John Ross would be just about 30, and Christopher a couple years younger. The show started in 1978 and neither were born for a few seasons, so there's no way they could be in their mid 30s.

My acting coach, the excellent character actor Darryl Cox, is shooting some scenes for this show. (Among other things, he was the referee in 'Necessary Roughness' that acted out the penalty by the ninja player...Darryl made all that crap up at the audition and the producers told him to do it in the film) So, while not a big Dallas fan, I'll have to at least watch the eps Darryl does.
Dec. 3, 2011, 5:12 p.m. CST
Perhaps the roles of John Ross and Christopher should have been reversed for the actors playing them. Am I the only one who has noticed this?
Dec. 3, 2011, 9:59 p.m. CST
by Sith Witch
Ninja Nerd! You're freaking me out. I've known of Darryl for quite a number of years. It's so weird to see a fellow central Oklahoman ( I assume) invoking his name :)

as Cliff Barnes' sleazy albino son who provides comic relief.

Why does all the cast members seem to have experience posing for lipgloss, and fragrances? This is the worst case of miscasting in the history of television. None them seem to know how to emote or even know what the acting term means. They're striking a pose in every shot. They should have called it "The Ewings take over Malibu" because it seems every new actor have been tanned real well at the beach. Where are the guys who look like they can make a dirty deal and scheme their way into something dramatic? Where are the blonde bombshells who uses their looks to get what they want but later learn they were pons to the chess match of business in the great state of Texas? This seems to be in the same vain of the WB's 90210 and Melrose Place next generation gimmicks tv. This is dreadful.

Growing up there, getting a house in the city would seem like a step down. Besides, living at home gives them a stronger claim on owning it when the parents move to Florida for the spin-off.

And yes, if done correctly, it will do what the original did by making it fun to watch the rich suffer. The current times mirror the times of the original in many ways; lousy leader for a President, gas prices up and the economy in the crapper. Hagman is the original series early years was a true bastard. Awesome to watch as he fought with his slutty, drunk wife. Out manuevered his Dad and brother and slept with everything with tits and a heartbeat. Bring it on.
