Question: There have been quite a few resurrections from the TV graveyard as of late and I must say I love it, way more than Hollywood's obsession of making a sequel out of everything as well as making too-soon remakes. Firefly and Veronica Mars both have movie continuations, Dallas and Boy Meets World have spawned new series chronicling the next generation (I know you're not too big a fan of the new Dallas, but I have to say I welcome the return of Judith Light to the series), Netflix brought back Arrested Development for a fourth season, and Heroes is coming out with Heroes: Reborn next year. So I'm wondering what are your thoughts on this phenomenon, and are there any shows that you feel should be next in this craze.
After the Games, the deluge. Now that Sochi's Closing Ceremony is but a glittery, shimmering memory, time for TV to get back to normal — which means everything new is finally new again. And for NBC, it signifies another big week, as it tries to keep the momentum going, using a new season of The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible Blind Auditions to fuel ratings on Mondays and Tuesdays, with a visceral assist from The Blacklist (10/9c). Red's latest target: a woman from his shadowy past played by Jennifer Ehle, who'll always be my favorite Elizabeth Bennet (from the 1995 Pride and Prejudice).
A philandering husband with the initials J.R. A drunk Sue Ellen. A major revenge plan involving Cliff Barnes. TNT's Dallas reboot is looking more than ever the way the show did in its '80s heyday. After securely establishing its own roots over the past two seasons by introducing a compelling new generation of Ewings, producers are now freely embracing the soap's rich history.
Dallas lost one of its founding fathers and biggest stars last season when Larry Hagman died in November 2012.
But while the man behind those signature eyebrows, J.R. Ewing, may be buried at Southfork, there's still one last interview with Hagman.
