Tv Season Info

The second season of this drama spends a good deal of time focusing on the murder of beloved bad boy J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman, who passed away while filming this season). As the family mourns, Bobby (Patrick Duffy) leads them in helping piece together exactly what happened to J.R., while John Ross (Josh Henderson) stresses the importance of avenging his father's death. Meanwhile, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) seeks to finalize his divorce from a pregnant Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo); and Ann (Brenda Strong) desperately tries to reconnect with Emma (Emma Bell), her long-lost daughter.

Critic Reviews for Dallas Season 2

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

Monday night's return of Dallas is a joy, too, and everything fans could ask for -- the past, present and future all skillfully bound up in a high-gloss melodrama full of deceit, greed, Velveeta and (surprisingly enough) even love.

The Ewings are still prime-time's serial drama royalty, not from the standpoint of prestigious awards but from the sheerly entertaining, oft-dopey melodrama of it all.

No one would have wanted Hagman... to leave Dallas this way. But in playing the hand that was forced on them, the show's actors, writers and crew seem to have stepped things up.

The writers have been especially good with the cliffhangers lately.

Although Dallas definitely lost one of its shining stars, I think that if they handle all of those irons right (and after these episodes, I'm hopeful), they will live on in the name of Larry Hagman.

Dallas [is] robust fun.

Jan 6, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

I can't say that I was eating my heart out wondering when Judith Light would be returning to series TV, but she has a regal, frosty veneer here that promises some impressive dragon lady bitchery.

Jan 6, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Judith Brown Ryland, played with venomous vigor by the reliably ferocious Judith Light. Gives one hope. If Dallas must continue without J.R., maybe a first-class Queen B---- is the answer.

Jan 6, 2014 | Full Review…

Monday's episode, titled "J.R.'s Masterpiece," seeks a balance between becoming an hour-long tribute to a pop icon and staying true to the show's mission as a fast-moving soap opera.

Mar 10, 2013 | Full Review…

How do you bid farewell to a legend? With a meaty hour brimming with emotion, humor, a few fisticuffs and some surprising revelations.
