I've been a member of soap chat since 1999, which was 13 years before the new show came along. Even then, people discussed what they considered to be flaws in the original show too. We were all fans of the show, so there were still many posts discussing what we liked. But at the same time, it was interesting discussing the points where we thought it went wrong. I know many Dallas fans who wouldn't have bothered with the new series had it not been billed as a continuation. I understand the resentment in light of the direction it went in. Although I thought it was shitty of them to put scenes like the one where Sue Ellen tells Emma about Kristen in the trailer, only to leave it on the cutting room floor. But I'm sure it would have taken away from Mama Ryland's brothel and the drug cartel's business.
