Television review: A worthy return to 'Dallas'

TNT's version, which focuses on JR, Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing, along with the next generation, is very much the heir of the CBS original, in spirit and execution.

"Dallas,"which in its love of the anti-hero and elevation of the cliffhanger set the stage for much of what is now considered Important Television, is back, 21 years after the end of the series proper and 14 years from the last branded TV movie. And the presence of Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray as JR, Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing — arguably the most important characters from the original series — means that you should take it as seriously, on its less than serious terms.,0,7953909.story
