Why couldn't Carmen at least been Teresa's sister? They didn't even make an attempt. This was the Ramos Show guest starring the Ewings and Rylands. Why didn't it work? Should anyone have to ask? When asked who was going to come out on top there was one answer, John Ross Ewing (I, II or III - take your pick). It's that simple. Some new fans really liked it for what it (Dallas 2.0) was but if they were going to kill the ratings they needed it to be what it had been (Dallas 1.0) with an updated next generation. They can try the whole 'network' took another direction but if this had taken off no way would they have sacrificed it. They took a risk on a new show "using" an old show and lost. What I expected was the old show making a come back. I expected too much I guess.
