“Dallas”: Shame falls on Southfork

Dallasseries_2Miss Ellie would have been so ashamed.

Apparently, the 30th anniversary “Dallas” reunion event, held Saturday at the ranch that starred on the CBS nighttime soap as Southfork, went bad, very bad — worse than the plots in the show’s later seasons. Don’t ask me why but I found these reports from the scene very funny. (And yes, it is hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since “Dallas” debuted. Even harder to believe that the show ran until the 1990-91 season.)

I can imagine the outrage, and the hairdos, of the ardent fans who forked over real money (in these times?!) but were ultimately denied the privilege of hanging with Larry Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy. Here’s the AP story on the event and here’s a more detailed report with video from Dallas’ WFAA-TV.
