I Am Obsessed: Dallas Edition

I spent my July 4th evening with a pint of America's Best ice cream (in accordance with US News) and Dallas Season 1 & 2 on DVD...while wearing my new jorts, of course. I can't think of anything more American than that, except Lee Greenwood's famous ballad.

But let's get back to Dallas.  If you are anything like me, you have heard of Dallas before and you know that there was a point in time when everyone wondered who shot some dude named J.R.  TNT has just decided to follow in the footsteps of the CW and the dudes who remade 21 Jump Street and remake an old classic.  When I saw the first few episodes of Dallas 2012, I knew I needed to know more about the Ewing Family and what made J.R. so damned evil!

Dallas has lived up to it reputation for being awesome...and more! So if you have never seen Dallas, I present you my Beginners' Guide to Dallas:

  • Patrick Duffy was HOT back in the day.  Before Patrick Duffy married Suzanne Somers on Step by Step (a.k.a. The TGIF remake of the Brady Bunch), he was a 1970s & 80s heartthrob!  He was all hair & nice legs. (which he frequently showed off with his bell bottoms, short towels, and mini robes)
  • Victoria Principal was also way hot! Before she got all Lindsay Lohan with her face. (i.e. plastic)
  • J.R. Ewing is awesome, confusing.  You probably shouldn't try to watch Dallas while high because it is very difficult to understand when J.R. is being genuine vs. when he is scheming while sober.  I can't imagine what kind of mind fuck he must be to a stoner!
  • The Fashion of 1978 could all seriously be on my current Pinterest Page...and awkwardly enough, most of the outfits I want to steal belong to Patrick Duffy. 
  • The musical score is phenomenal. I know exactly how I should feel and what to expect based on the awesome score for the show.  It is cheesy and incredible. If I could put it on my iPod, I swear I would listen to it to get pumped up for my day. 
  • Apparently it isn't weird to have grown up children and their spouses all living under one roof.  South Fork Ranch is basically the Bermuda one ever leaves. (except Gary, the forgotten middle child whose storyline is like Miley Cyrus's tweets, awkward and unnecessary)  The adult children all live at home with their parents...and their new wives.  It is just unnatural...but the fashion and music make up for it. 
    In summary, Dallas Season 1 & 2 on DVD was a very good purchase...if you are trying to avoid the 105 degree heat this weekend, too, then I suggest you buy it ASAP!!
