This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a fast shout out and say I actually appreciate reading by way of your posts. Can you 7 years ago Craig, KS Really looking forward to the show, notice the panting in the background, it’s a shame that Jock Ewing painting was sold. Will they have a mock up one, or they ought to have one of the family back in the day like the classic publicity photo, or Miss Elle and Jock. 7 years ago Paul Does anyone have a view or knowledge as to whether J.R. Returns and/War of the Ewings actually form part of the back story. From what I have seen and read it would seem to suggest that they don’t. Linda Grey makes reference to being in Europe with John Ross but nothing about owning or having owned Ewing Oil. Larry Hagman mentions the end of the series and having lost all his money and appears to be in a home of sort (perhaps after shooting the image of the devil in the mirror?) All of this seems to suggest that the events in the two movies didn’t happen. Bobby and Sue Ellen never owned Ewing Oil and JR never ran West Star. Personally I think its a shame to ignore them all together but would appreciate anyone elses views or knowledge on the matter. 7 years ago Macdaddy Episode 1 references J.R Returns but EWar of the Ewings is a no show JOHN ROSS Last time I saw my father was at his funeral. Only it turned out he’d faked his death to get Ewing Oil back from Cliff Barnes. SUE ELLEN Not to defend J.R., John Ross, but it was the only thing he could think of to make us return from Europe. JOHN ROSS Mother, in most families, the father apologizes to his wife and son when he’s been a shit and wants them back. 7 years ago johnnybob i wonder if another reason for Larry joining the new series is,that he didn’t want or was worried they would damage the original memory of the Dallas series….change too much ,so he wanted to protect his “baby” so to speak? 7 years ago Macdaddy I work on the series and it’s Cynthia Cidre’s writing that got him back. I gotta say it kicks ass 7 years ago Martina Is this a case of the Americans attempting to redefine a term in the English thesaurus? In English it translates as – make a comeback – recommence – resume 7 years ago Dan TomTom, Tristano is correct. This is not a reboot, which is defined on Wikipedia follows: “The term reboot, in media dealing with serial fiction, means to discard much or even all previous continuity in the series and start anew with fresh ideas. Effectively, all established fictive history is declared by the writer(s) to be null and void, or at least irrelevant to the new storyline, and the series starts over as if brand-new.” Clearly, not a reboot. Tristano never said this was a remake, which was your word. It’s not a remake either, obviously. It’s a new series and a continuation, I would say. 7 years ago Tristano The title of this article incorrectly calls the new Dallas a “reboot”… as do several erroneous articles on the web. A reboot disregards the past history of a show and starts over from scratch…. which is cleary not the case here. I would suggest that the editors of Ultimate Dallas refrain from using “reboot” to define the new Dallas. 7 years ago TomTom It is a reboot, that is the correct term. Remake is incorrect. The definition of reboot is to restart and in the Oxford English dictionary it details it as revive. So reboot is the correct description.
