As a child from the 80s I grew up watching all the famous soaps, including Dallas. I have all the dvds and I'm just a huge fan. So when they announced they were going to continue the story, I was a little bit nervous that it wouldn't live up to the awesomeness of the original. I entirely expected them of pulling a 90210 move and using the old cast members as bait. To my surprise the new Dallas ended up being quite enjoyable. Granted it has your typical soap opera story lines but it manages to get pass that and being fun. While it certainly isn't classic Dallas it manages to live as a show on its own.
