TNT Offers Online Streaming of
First Seven Episodes of Dallas Season 2
Leading Up to J.R.'s Funeral

As TNT's Dallas prepares to lay the iconic J.R. Ewing to rest, viewers will have the unique opportunity to catch up with the hit series online. TNT will make the first six episodes of Dallas Season 2 available for online viewing at and through the TNT mobile app. The seventh episode of the season will join the pack on March 5, the day after it airs on TNT. All seven episodes will remain available for online streaming through March 12, the day after the episode featuring J.R.'s funeral premieres. Dallas airs Mondays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT. This special offering by TNT means that viewers will be able to catch up with the entire season-to-date.

In Dallas' March 11 episode – entitled "J.R.'s Masterpiece" – the Ewing clan comes together to say goodbye to J.R. Ewing, who, after a lifetime of scheming and dealing, has finally met his end. The Ewing family reels at hearing the news about J.R.'s death and is even more shocked to learn the cause. Striving to set aside their differences, J.R.'s family comes together to mourn his passing, accompanied by many characters from his past. But their tears are soon overpowered by a shocking revelation worthy of one of televisions most iconic characters. In life – and now in death – nothing is ever as it seems when it comes to J.R. Ewing.

    I didn’t watch Season 1 but was glued to the set, like much of America, on Friday nights throughout much of the original series’ run. I’ve been watching Season 2 just to see how the show handles Larry Hagman’s death. The acting of the younger generation is generally deplorable. The unfortunate actor playing John Ross, for instance, is just sullen, while for the show to have legs he needs to have some of his daddy’s devilish charm and delight in double-crossing people; he has none of that.

    The acting of the older generation (particularly Patrick Duffy, and Judith Light, as an incredibly creepy Dallas socialite in love with her own son) and the writing have kept me tuning in. The writers, as a matter of fact, should be applauded for staying so true to the original show’s format: balance the corporate intrigue with the family drama, and pack a lot of action into every episode. I fully expect they will love up to the hype in this press release and create an exit for J.R. that could have plot repercussions for seasons to come.

    Hopefully the ratings will takeoff next week with Larry Hagmans final appearance as JR. He’ll be greatly missed but understandable this paves the way for the next generation of Ewings & to slowly fade out its original characters Bobby & Sue Ellen.
