Somehow I have become totally addicted to old Dallas reruns on SoapNet. I don't know, maybe I'm subconsciously reliving the Friday nights of my childhood (if only Falcon Crest were on afterward!) but it has become my most beloved guilty pleasure. They just don't make tv dramas like that anymore. And damn, that JR sure is a sonuvabitch (no disrespect to you, Miss Ellie ma'am).
I'm finding it interesting how my perception of the characters has changed over the years. For example, I think when I was little, my favorite was Pam (probably because she was the prettiest, by my Barbie-doll standard). Now I find her whiny and irritating. Instead, I find myself siding with crazy-eyed Sue Ellen - let's see, becoming an alcoholic, being admitted to and escaping from a sanitarium, and crashing a stolen car, ALL while 7 months pregnant?? Now THAT's class! I also used to think Cliff was a bit of a douchebag (not that "douchebag" was part of my vocabulary when I was in elementary school) but now I find him quite likeable in his antics to destroy the Ewings.
Didn't appreciate it back at the time, but makes me proud to have visited ( the real Southfork!Collapse )
