There seems to be a lot of ’80s TV remake buzz going around these days. As an addendum to my entry of January 5, here now is what appears to be the latest on the resurrection of J.R. Ewing.
Meanwhile, a friend just alerted me to this possible revival as well. All I can say is… I’ll believe it when I see it! Unfortunately, unlike Larry Hagman who’s very much alive, John Forsythe died last year at age 92. As such, I’m initially unconvinced as to how successful any Carrington-themed movie might be.
In any case, I still prefer the originals to the remakes, especially where an inauthentic replacement cast is concerned. We’ll just see if any of this really comes to fruition.
And that’s my opinion.
