Are you going to be watching the new “DALLAS”?  It starts this Wednesday at 9pm on TNT for a 2 hour premier.  I can’t wait!  I’m so glad for real tv to be back on instead of one reality show after another.

I used to watch this show when I was a kid.  I can’t believe my mom let me watch sometimes!  I actually got to stay up late the night that J.R. was shot.  I remember peeking around the corner from my bedroom door to watch it.  I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to see someone shot on tv, so I kinda hid.  But when he was shot, I think I let out a squeal!  I was shocked!  He was shot and then it was followed by “Who shot him?”  I couldn’t believe he was really shot!

When I got to school everyone was so jealous because I got to stay up and watch it.  My mom was the coolest!  I also got to be home from school in time to watch Luke and Laura get married, but that’s another story!

I’m also wondering if the show will have an impact on men’s fashion.  I’m picturing guys walking around in boots, plaid shirts and cowboy hats.  I think the country look has come back with a vengeance anyway in my neck of the woods, so this may give it a bigger boost.  But will the modern cowboy look sweep the stores this fall?  It’s time to shake up men’s fashion anyway and there’s nothing wrong with the cowboy look!

And what about the women?  No more shoulder pads and power dressing this time around!  I never understood the whole I-wanna-look-like-a-linebacker-look anyway.  We’ll just have to wait and see if they impact women’s fashion this time as much as they did last time.  Remember the hairstyles?

Are you looking forward to this show coming back?  Did you see the original or will this be a first time for you?  Tell me your thoughts!
