They modeled them after real homes in Dallas, I read. The first episode at least, was filmed in the actual home, then sets built in Dallas to match.

ok, after watching the opening several times, I REALLY like it.
So, pictures did not do the sets justice? Good. I was hoping that what shows up on the screen would look grander or have a richer texture to it. 10 more days till I can finally watch and enjoy.

Yes. That is true. So, I guess we should all be glad that they decided to do what they did... after all, it is a more refreshed, faster paced opening and the music is great with the drums... just wish that at the 17 second mark it was a little different. BUT I'm very satisfied.

Other than that the only thing I didn't really like was the that theme seemed a bit "subdued" so to speak. It didn't quite have the bombast that I remember but all in all this was a pretty good opening. Perhaps if there's a season 2 they'll do some tweaks, lengthen it a bit and show the cast.
Can't wait to see this!
Bullseye! That is absolutely true right there. After all, if the current Five-0 can have "Based on Hawaii Five-O created by Leonard Freeman," then why can't this new Dallas have words to the effect of "Based on Dallas originally created by David Jacobs"?

I love that the new Dallas has an opening theme. But I really miss seeing the faces of the actors in the opening credits. Now if they could just add those it would be perfect.
I don't care if the text color is white instead of gold. Just give me the faces!
Also another current show that has faces in their opening credits is "Bones".
