2:02 Dallas: Season 13
He played the role of Cliff Barnes for 14 seasons
Send questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow me on Twitter! Question: With just one episode remaining for Gracepoint, our household finds itself perplexed. We never saw Broadchurch, so our opinion can't be influenced by that distinction, but we've completely enjoyed the "Americanized" version. The past couple of episodes in particular have been tightly written and filmed (the atmosphere of the town is palpable). Despite our enjoyment, however, it seems we can't see a review or story about Gracepoint without hearing how inferior a product it is, which is obviously counter to our appreciation of the series. So the question we have is this: If we were to watch Broadchurch AFTER Gracepoint finishes, are we likely to believe the original is "not as good" a series because we saw the adaptation first? — The Galvins
Dallas will not be back for a fourth season. TNT canceled its reboot of the hit soap opera Friday.
All season long, I've been likening CBS's freshman sleeper Mom to gritty sitcom foremothers like Roseanne and Grace Under Fire (shows on which executive producer Chuck Lorre famously spent time before his current CBS heyday). That comparison rings especially true in the first-season finale (Monday, 9:30/8:30c), as third-generation mom-too-soon Violet (Sadie Calvano) gives birth while her own imperfect mother, Christy (Anna Faris), and caustic grandma Bonnie (Allison Janney) look on with emotional empathy.
TNT has announced the premieres for its summer shows, including Rizzoli & Isles, Dallas and Franklin & Bash. The network also revealed the series premiere date of Murder in the First, a new crime drama from Emmy winner Steven Bochco that stars Taye Diggs, Kathleen Robertson and Tom Felton.
