BOY! WHY DIDN'T I JUST LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE!!!!!!??????
on May 28, 2015
Larry Hagman unfortunately passed away before he could even finish this season out, after filmed about six episodes. I didn't see any of this season until after it was all said, done, and over. I remember the Friday right after "Thanksgiving Day" when it was announced that Larry had passed away, the whole world knew they had lost their favorite television villain. I believe that JR was Larry Hagman's favorite role. If it wasn't, he sure was born to play him. At the end of season one we find out that Rebecca was Cliff's wicked daughter, who was willing to do his biddings to help destroy The Ewing's. Cliff helped to cover up the killing of Rebecca's lover, Tommy Sutter, who was threatening to expose the nasty little game she was playing with The Ewings. In this season Frank, Cliff's sidekick, and trained lap dog, gets a bit tired of cleaning up Rebecca's messes so he defects to JR's side, which was like slapping Cliff in the face. Cliff, in return, frames Frank for the murder of Tommy Sutter. Frank goes to jail, is soon visited by Cliff, who slips him a cyanide pill and tells Frank that he know what he has to do. Frank, still so loyal to Cliff because he rescued him from a adversed impoverished life, in court pleaded guilty to Tommy's murder, still cleaning up after Cliff's Princess, takes the cyanide pill and commits suicide. If I wasn't done after the ending in season one, I was definitely done after this episode. I sure wanted to see the ending of the JR Character. But I'm thoroughly convinced that I am through, done, and finished with "Dallas: 2012". I'm sure glad I didn't buy this one cold. In spite of the beautiful covers and disc's this would not have been a purchase I would have enjoyed. I've given this one star. And I was reluctant to give it that much.
