Most here on Soapchat agree that Conundrum was a horrible way for Dallas to end. There were no happy endings there. We were left with the idea JR had shot himself. I didn't like the "It's a wonderful Life" overtones of the final episode but I do envisage a burnt out JR Ewing doing exactly what he had done by pulling back on the trigger, raising the pistol and leaving us the impression he shot himself. As far as we knew that was it for Dallas. No more..... .....until the reunion movies and we learnt JR was alive and well and still up to mischief. Granted the reunion movies weren't crash hot either and so we bid farewell to Dallas once again with still no happy ending until..... .....along comes TNT Dallas. It started off well but soon fell flat when true believers discover this is not Dallas or about the Ewing family but a new show called Mexico with guest appearances from the Ewing family. Did we receive a happy ending? No. We get the incredulous idea from Cynthia Cidre she wanted a dead Ewing to tempt TNT in giving her another season. Despite Dallas being granted multiple opportunities for happy endings we haven't been afforded that luxury. I don't mind Dallas being given such treatment because we never know if it will be resurrected again.
