I still remember when Dallas Started in 1978 as test run that led to 14 seasons. I will admit that Dallas was best early on with Bobby -vs- JR rivalry, especially JR being bad guy and Bobby the good guy. It is sad to see Larry Hagman had passed on as his role JR Ewing is classic. I watch Dallas 2012 and you could see with JR that he was not looking well, especially how his voiced sounded. I still watch the show as i wanted to see how the torch was passed to the kids. The passing of the torch is a good idea, but i am not sure it will have the same staying power as the original series. I think S2 could possibly be the end, especially with JR now gone. You really can not have Dallas without JR. It kind of reminds me of when 8 simple rules lost John Ritter and how the show went down hill.
