DALLAS – Season 2, Episode 11: “Triangle”

Captain’s Log, stardate 1212.78. We’ve detected some sort of temporal rift that could get us out of the Delta Quadrant. However, it looks as though the rift only opens into one point in space and time … an Earth bar known as the Mustang Club in the 1970s. Our historical records of the time show the “Swinging Seventies” to be a time of loose secual morals(as defined by their more primitive society, not by our advanced standards) and petty infighting, even among families. To avoid…

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…
