I saw the original Dallas as simular to the Waltons in that you had 3 generations living in a house together.Well if Lorimer had done nu dallas that would continue at Southfork. Southfork would have been updated but would have retained the beauty and the charactor of the original southfork. Now for the cast.JR and Sue Ellen and Bobby a must with the original actors.A replacement Pam. A replacement christopher. For John Ross keep as is. No Ramoses! No Rylands! Let there be Barnes and a separate rival Ewings family or a Southworth family. Its entirely possible that Jock or Miss Ellie had siblings with a family! For writers and producers. The writers must know how to do charactor driven soap opera in the style of the original Dallas. That I insist upon. Good storytelling and charactor developement never goes out of style! Patrick Duffy directs the show. Now for storytelling. Bobby and Pam are divorced and Sue Ellen and JR are divorced. But each has their own wing at Southfork. They bicker with each other. John Ross and Christopher have businesses that compete with each other. They also compete for girlfriends. Eventually they have marriages and families. It will not be a crime show. I want the original Dallas updated for this day and age. But I want the generations to be equal with equal time to each. No more of this secondary charactors. I think it would be interesting for JR and Sue Ellen to be parents to John Rosses children. John Ross inherited Sue Ellens alcoholism and JRs plilandering resulting in an illegitamate child. JR says hes the father in order to save John Ross from ruin. They he and Sue Ellen raise the baby as their own. What do you think Nu Dallas would have been like if Lorimar had done it.
