    STARTED out GREAT!!! First episode was a WINNER!!!! Was not impressed by actors cast to play John Ross & Bobby's son. Watched 2nd show and immediately lost interest...plot thickened too much too soon. Well it was a great 1st show!

    Shame on the makers of Dallas for endugling in the last "legitimate" form of discrimination - against those with mental health disorders. The creators of the show paint a picture of Marta Del Sol as this unhinged, unstable vixen who stalks her ex-boyfriends, threatening them with violence. Just after these revelations, they show a close-up of a perscription bottle that, of course, reads 'LITHIUM'. So sure, everyone knows she suffers from Bi-Polar disorder, and "of course", that makes her some violent psychopath. That would be like hearing that a character in a TV show has contracted HIV, and the makers of the show focus on hand-to-hand contact and pull some dramatic music out ouf their ass - like you can contract it that way. News to the Dallas creators - there are millions of Americans who are bipolar - it's one of the most treatable illnesses, and the vast majority are just like anyone else. And Marta Del Sol is taking her freain' medication! So don't make her look like a psychopath by using that crutch. Go ahead and do it by her actions - not by her condition. Very poor. Bad form.

    A very good mix of old and new, but preferrably it is the veterans that keep this show going!!! It is trippy to watch Southfork 20 years since the show went off the air!

    It is good to have JR back; the character we love to hate. I have been keeping up with the episodes of the 1st season, and they are quite good. I grew up watching the old Dallas; always loved the show, the characters are all great!

    The cast is filled with talented veterans and good looking newbies, but unfortunately the acting, writing and directing is some of the worst I've seen in years.

    The newer additions to the cast don't have much of a presence beyond their plot roles, yet somehow manage to occupy a majority of the screen time. As a result, the new Dallas acquires the brashness of an impostor laying claim to a vast family fortune.

    The new Dallas isn't a game-changer, but it's a solidly built, easy-to-take soap that does right by its predecessor.

    [Larry Hagman's eyebrows] are the most contemporary thing about the "new" Dallas, which otherwise looks and feels like a chunk of the '80s trapped in amber.
