DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 24: “John Ross Ewing III, Part 2”

It’s the season finale and Linda Gray shines in some moving monologues and crazy-eyed drinking!  Let’s not waste any time! Why did I go to so many charity functions? We pick up a few days after the end of Part 1. J.R. drives to the sanitarium to see Sue Ellen. When the doctor lets him in Sue Ellen’s room, it’s clear what to doctor told J.R. is true – she is resisting treatment and she is pissed. So pissed, she hurls a glass at J.R.!…

DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 21: “Royal Marriage”

Lucy gets engaged … but not for long! It’s a very special afterschool special edition of Dallas! This newspaper and it’s Ewing-centric content! So, I don’t remember seeing this episode when it aired. I’d be surprised if my parents knew what was coming (homosexualism!) but I also wouldn’t be unsurprised. I applaud Dallas and Bobby’s character in particular for not treating it as any more scandalous than last week’s “Financier in Love Nest” headline. However, I feel like I would have remembered this if I…

Who rips up $500? This call girl! You can NOT buy Veronica Hamel! Suddenly, I like racquetball. I don’t know why. Bobby and J.R. are playing racquetball, which of course they were. How on trend for that time! Bobby looks amazing, sweaty and sleek in a tank top and some super short shorts. J.R. just looks sweaty.  An employee tells Bobby that Ray has called and really ahs to speak to him. I assumed Bobby left the court to talk on the phone, but no,…

DALLAS — Season Two, Episode 17: “The Red File, Part I”

Oh, my! I love and hate this episode. I wish Julie had stuck around longer, but when you cross J.R. AND the Cartel … well, clearly your life expectancy on this show (in fact your life expectancy, period) goes down! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood … Julie and J.R. are having a lovely stroll on a pier and apparently, they’ve been strolling and “inspecting offshore rigs” (clearly code for “banging each other senseless”) for three days. Julie wants to know if J.R. is…

DALLAS- Season 2, Episode 13: “Kidnapped”

It’s the scruffy Bobby episode! Although, that does NOT look like real beard stubble.

You don’t want this guy spying on you. Before breakfast a shady character is spying on the ranch. Given the problems they have had since the first season, you’d think the Ewings would beef up security a bit.…

Wonder Woman – Season One, Episode 3: “Fausta, The Wonder Woman”

Oh my! With her magic lasso and belt captured by Fausta, a Nazi who is NOT AT ALL a Wodner Woman as the title implies, it looks like Diana has no way out … and it’s Steve Trevor to the rescue! You can tell she’s evil because of the black cape. Fausta Grables, who she is happy to let you know is a 1936 Olympics winner, heads to a secret Nazi headquarters. I’m not really sure who they were being secretive from in Berlin ……
