Would you watch a “Dallas” spinoff about Bobby Ewing? It’s a question we’ve been pondering since last week, when fellow fan Jennifer Irons — a.k.a. Team Bobby Ewing — took to Twitter to suggest Patrick Duffy’s iconic character should get his own TV series.

It’s another red-letter day in “Dallas” history. Thirty-five years ago today, CBS aired “Executive Wife,” the episode in which Jock famously schools Bobby on the Ewing creed: “Real power is something you take!” I ranked the scene fifth on my list of “Dallas’s” greatest moments a few years ago and also wrote about it when […]

Critique: ‘Dallas’ Episode 195 — ‘Resurrection’

Critique - Dallas Episode 195 - Resurrection 1 featured image

“Resurrection” brings Mark Graison back from the dead and Sue Ellen Ewing back from the brink. His revival is the more surprising of the two, although hers is more satisfying. In the episode before this one, Sue Ellen went through a harrowing detoxification after her drinking landed her on skid row. The audience never doubts […]
