But IS Barnes the best? Oohh, this episode is a bit TOO relevant. I wonder if I should have waited until November for this one!

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 7: “Runaway”

Can you even play, Lucy? Wow. What a week. With the global news and the COVID outbreak so dire, I have one bright spot –  this week’s Dallas recap. And it may be the second or third best episode ever! Better than “Who Shot J.R.?” you ask? Did that episode have a van with a total shag carpet interior? Nope. Did it have Lucy wanting a band called the Coffins playing at her birthday party? No, it did not. Did it have Greg Evigan as…

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 6: “Double Wedding”

Pam was married before Bobby? Oh, hell we better dive right in! Stop hiding behind that pillow! We start with Pam massaging Bobby, which I am not mad about. He points out that years on the road, followed by a short stint in the office, have not prepared his muscles for 14 hour days on the ranch. Imma point out, that nobody is MAKING you work 14 hours. I’m pretty sure Ray stays employed since no one WANTS to work 14 hours a day on…

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 4: “Bypass”

It’s the Jock has a heart attack episode! Pay attention, J.R.! For me, this was when Dallas truly started sinking its hooks into me. I loved it up until now, but when Jock had a heart attack, we moved into the type of soap opera tropes that General Hospital weaned me on. If only Bobby and Pam had gone on the run and looked for the Ice Princess! Also, J.R. starts really coming into his own. With all the family set-up of the first season…
