Larry Hagman is what made the original series but in this new one, he as J.R. is not like he used to be, he is too weak so it will not be hard to cut it loose. As far as the younger characters, Christopher and Rebecca are my only interest. I will not watch Dallas again if there is a wedding for Elena and Chris. I have no interest in watch these two. I like John Ross but even as mean as he is he can't keep my attention enough to want to watch.
I absolutely refuse to watch Christopher with Elena. I don't like them together And from what I read on other forum and may not be the only viewer who feels this way.
If Cynthia Cidre is trying to sell them to viewers, I doubt she will achieve much success with that.
