Dallas The Complete Second Season:

Synopsis: J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), one of the most iconic television villains of all time, takes his last breath under very suspicious circumstances but not before stirring up a season’s worth of Texas-size trouble. J.R. deviously guides his son, John Ross (Josh Henderson), in stealing the family business from Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy), while the ladies take their own sides. Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) runs for governor, Ann (Brenda Strong) takes aim at her ex, Harris (Mitch Pileggi), and Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) and Elena (Jordana Brewster) prove that being beautiful and fighting dirty sometimes go hand in hand. Plus, Elena’s brother, Drew (Kuno Becker), and Ann’s long-lost daughter, Emma (Emma Bell), add their own agendas to life at Southfork. It’s a season of must-see drama and even though J.R. and his Stetson are laid to rest, he’s still calling the shots, bequeathing a legacy he calls his “masterpiece,” which leaves the normally unshakable Ewing family in shock.

According to Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing) in an interview with the Huffington Post, DALLAS season three returns in January 2014. Which means we’ll get to see what happens to Harris and whether he can outsmart John Ross (Josh Henderson) and get his company back from spoiled brat Emma (Emma Bell). We’ll also see the return of Harris’ mother, Judith (Judith Light). Can hardly wait.

The official word came today, DALLAS has been renewed for a third season. The official word came after series star Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) tweeted:

Patrick Duffy ‏@therealpduffy 8h
OK all my tweet friends. It’s official. We are on for season 3. Do in large part to you all. Deepest thanks

This is good news for those who were hoping the show would be back. I’m hoping this means series Executive Producer Cynthia Cidre corrects her mistake at having Harris made such a heavy. While I know he’s supposed to be the town heavy, but I truly hope Cidre scales back on the amount of villainy. I think Ryland works better as a complicated baddie rather than an out-and-out mustache twirling villain. Read the official.

‘Dallas’ renewed for third season

The Ewing clan will continue their TV dynasty.

TNT has picked up a third season of Dallas, with 15 episodes ordered for early next year.

“Dallas has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven storylines, clever twists and turns, and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT. “Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.’s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted.”

Indeed, some wondered if Dallas would continue beyond the second season after Hagman passed away late last year. The season has averaged 3.8 million viewers per episode when including seven days of DVR playback, and 1.4 million adults 18-49.

As promised, here is the media for the final two episodes of season two of DALLAS. I still don’t know what to make out of the finale. I was hoping Cythia Cidre wouldn’t go full hog on making Harris a full blown villain. Certainly the way Mitch was playing so much subtext. I was also hoping with Judith (Judith Light) out of the picture, we’d see more of Harris’ backbone in terms of how he conducted himself. And can I say how absolutely I hate with a passion Emma and Ann (Emma Bell and Brenda Strong). I just wanted to smack the smirk off of her face in the jailhouse scene. What bothers me is that Ann was convicted of attempted murder of Harris, yet who is the one in prison? Yeah, so what. Harris was doing illegal stuff, but I really don’t think Cidre has thought this through. She’s sort of taken the punch out of the character with him being so easy to manipulate and in a way, fall. Though Cidre in a just released interview stated this:

Keck’s Exclusives: Dallas Finale Burning Questions

TV Guide Magazine: What is in Ryland’s briefcase that Emma stole for John Ross?
Cidre: We have discussed that ad nauseum and have a lot of ideas. There is a lot of fun stuff in there.

TV Guide Magazine: Are Cliff, Ryland and Drew all gone from the show?
Cidre: Oh gosh, no.

TV Guide Magazine: What are you being told about a third season?
Cidre: Nothing except, ‘Hang in there; we love you.’

TV Guide Magazine: Why is the decision taking so damn long?
Cidre: There are some TNT negotiations. I don’t think it’s personal. They couldn’t be nicer to us.

TV Guide Magazine: What are you hoping to explore in a third season?
Cidre: Obviously the Elena/Joaquin relationship. John Ross and Pamela’s marriage. John Ross/Emma. Emma/Judith. Judith/Ryland. Christopher without Elena.

TV Guide Magazine: Any new characters you’re conceptualizing?
Cidre: Ann has to have relatives we haven’t met yet. She may have a brother.

While she may have Harris in her future plans for DALLAS, I don’t see how she can strip away the taint that is on the character. My hope was he be above the Ewing/Barnes feud. For the most part Bobby (Patrick Duffy) framed an innocent man of murder, yet Harris gets shot and cannot get a win against the Ewings. And I mean seriously, did they have to redo Mitch as Hoarce Pinker in SHOCKER? Enough bitching.

Ultimate Dallas has an interview with Brenda Strong who plays Ann Ryland Ewing where she talks about Mitch as Harris. Here’s the pertinent portion.

Ultimate Dallas: The Rylands are obviously very dark and twisted and played brilliantly. How has it been working with Mitch (Pileggi), Judith (Light), and Emma (Bell)?

Brenda Strong: What’s so fortunate is that we have three very extraordinary actors in these three walls of the Rylands, always around between Harris, Judith, and Emma. Their chemistry—you can’t make up. It just occurs between all three of them as individual actors and also as a group. It’s just delicious. That’s the best word I can describe is that everyone is bringing their game, feeding off of each other, and having the time of their life playing these archetypical but not atypical roles. It’s really a pleasure to work with all three of them.
