In the 80’s the big question on everyone’s lips was “Who shot JR?”, and the big scandal was when audiences felt they had been duped for a year, after discovering Bobby wasn’t dead. The entire ‘Bobbyless’ Dallas season had in fact been an elaborate dream.
After 21 years, Dallas is finally coming back to Irish TV tonight. JR, Bobby and Sue Ellen return with the offspring in tow. Will it be just as scandalous, full of drama and bold fun? To paraphrase JR, “Will blood be thicker than water, or will oil continue to be thicker than both?” Tonight, Irish audiences get to find out for themselves as it premieres on TV3 at 10pm.
For those who can’t wait until tonight, here is a little teaser which includes interviews with the original cast and an introduction to the new generation.
