Is this really all the TNT Dallas producers thought the original show was about? I think it was Mike Robin who said something like this. How in the hell are bolo ties out of place in Texas? It seemed pretty condescending to me. Just like Jesse Metcalfe constantly saying the writing on TNT was "much better" and for a more "sophisticated" audience. These people were really up their own asses, weren't they? Even Patrick Duffy said he thought the new series was better than most of the original. Of course, he altered his stance a bit once the show was cancelled. I hear fans of TNT Dallas complain about people hating on it, but the people involved with TNT Dallas seemed to have their own snobbish views towards the original series.
