We're speaking of "Dallas," of course. Today comes word that the stars of that 80s show will get together once again, this time to celebrate the program's 30th anniversary. It won't be a reunion show, but instead a barbecue at the drama's location, Southfork Ranch outside of Dallas. Tickets start at $100 [which is roughly what this happenin' gal charged for front-row seats, ahem] and go up to $1,000. The event will include fireworks, a country music concert, a question-and-answer session with the cast and tours of the mansion. Details here.
WWP was never a big fan of the show. During the 1980s, WWP didn't get the chance to watch much television, being self-employed for the first half of the decade and holding down two or three jobs at a time during the second half. The whole "who shot J.R." mania completely passed him by. In its entire run, WWP only watched one episode. Twice.
It was somewhere around 1990 or 1991, as "Dallas" was winding down. Pablo been forced to sit through an episode with friends. About six months later, a similar situation arose, and it being the last season he consented to watch another episode. Only problem was, it was a rerun -- of the one and only episode WWP had seen before!
That's his main memory of "Dallas." Here's a happier one.
