Default J.R. Ewing is BACK! - New "Dallas" set to air on TNT



This new series also revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Dallas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. It will focus mainly on John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen Ewing; and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing and Pam Ewing. Both John Ross and Christopher were born during the original series' run and were featured in it as children.

Now grown, John Ross has become almost a carbon copy of his father, bent on oil, money and greed. Christopher, meanwhile, has become a lot like Bobby, in that he is more interested in the upkeep of Southfork Ranch, much like his father and his late grandmother, Miss Ellie. As an additional point of contention, Christopher is also becoming a player in alternative energy.

Besides Bobby, J. R. and Sue Ellen, other familiar characters return including Lucy Ewing (J. R. and Bobby's niece) and Ray Krebbs (J. R. and Bobby's half brother). Ken Kercheval, who played J. R.'s nemesis Cliff Barnes, is also set to guest star in a multi-episode arc in the upcoming series. New characters include Bobby's new wife, Ann Ewing (played by Desperate Housewives actress Brenda Strong).

The "pilot" episode, "Changing of the Guard" airs this coming Wednesday night at nine eastern time.

We have a 80 year old Larry Hagman still playing J.R. Ewing... Will be interesting to see if he can still project absolute evil like he did in the original run. Set your DVRs!

Here's a bunch of of TNT's promos mashed together:

BRAVO!

This show still works! JR is as charismatic and evil as ever, there's more double-dealing, backstabbing and evil plotting going on than ever, and the new Dallas is a success!

The series opened with John Ross breaking the cardinal rule of the Ewings - drilling for oil on the Southfork ranch! It was a promise Jock made to Miss Ellie way back when they were married - the ranch was never the Ewings, it was the Southworths and Miss Ellie was a Southworth and her father never allowed drilling on the ranch.

This was also the main issue between Bobby and JR in the original series - JR always wanted to drill on the ranch, but Jock (before he died) then Bobby and Miss Ellie fought to stop him.

Meanwhile, Bobby has been informed he has a terminal form of cancer, and he decided to sell the ranch to a conservatory in order to fund his adopted son Christopher's watermelon scheme of extracting methane from the ocean floor.

And the war is on, as JR snaps out of his apparently self induced clinical depression and begins pulling strings - and has his already pulled too by John Ross of all people!

The battle for Southfork and the Ewing identity resumes. The first two episodes were very nicely done, and they even got the famous intro updated just right!

Wonderful opening "teaser" for the show tonight.... JR Ewing at vintage best, holding a straight razor to his own son's throat, going, "Did you really think you were gonna cut your daddy out of two billion barrels of oil?"

Best line though: "You can judge a man by his friends, and his enemies. My friends are in the state house. My enemies..... Are harder to find."

They are doing a great job with this show.
