I admit I didn’t watch one minute of “Dallas” during its original 13-year run, although I did have a thing back in the day for Victoria Principal.

She didn’t know about it, of course, because her “people” secured the restraining order before she could understand the depth and breadth of my obsess…, um affection.

TNT plans to give me and you a second chance, though … at watching “Dallas,” not with Victoria Principal. She's, like, 60 now, so who cares?

The network, according to Deadline.com, recently ordered a pilot episode for a remake of the soap opera.

Since J.R., Bobby, and the Ewing clan are a little past their prime-time, the updated show features J.R. Jr. and Bobby Jr., maybe, “who clash over the future of the Ewing dynasty while the fate of Southfork itself weighs in the balance.” No, not [gasp] Southfork.

No word yet on whether or not the show will be filmed in Dallas. It’s TV, who needs authenticity?

Bruce Felps owns and operates East Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He’s hoping for a remake of “Watauga.” What? There wasn’t one in the first place?
