Fug the Show: Dallas recap, season 2 finale

The last five or ten minutes set up some good old-fashioned soapy drama for season three, if the show gets renewed. Everyone cross your fingers, because with Revenge being so terrible and Pretty Little Liars being almost indecipherable at times (although I am still hooked), TV needs some good old-fashioned soapy drama that isn’t also a) bleak, b) so confusing that it’s possible NOBODY remembers what’s going on, or c) a cartoon of itself. And which also empowers its older characters to be both flawed and fabulous. Seriously, nobody spits nails like freaking Ann Ewing, y’all.

    so, “Zurich” was apparently up and moved to my old neighborhood in Dallas. I had to keep rewinding to giggle.

      nicole, where in Dallas was it?? I’ve spent the whole season identifying parts of the city but couldn’t figure out where “Zurich” was. I also cracked up over the majority of the “European” cars being Smart Cars. Love this show!

    Excellent recap as usual, Heather. I will be so sad if they don’t bring this show back.

    Your Dallas fugcaps are a treasure, and the reason I started watching the reboot. I SO love how they resolved JR’s death– I was aghast when it looked like it might be Cliff, because, NO. Not in this or any alternate Ewing universe.

    The Dallas fugcaps have quickly become my favorite thing on the site, and that’s saying a LOT. Keep up the good work!

    They pulled a Dumbledore? Seriously?

    • Heather

      Yep! Why not? In many ways JR is the Dumbledore of this show. Except maybe the goodness part.

        That’s what I shouted at my tv in glee. “They Dumbledored JR !!” It was AWESOME. I love this show, it it delicious.

    Love that you called him Bernard and the Lost references. Did y’all ever fugcap that show? If not, how much would I have to pay for you to do it? Even just the first season would be fabulous!
