** Larry Hagman's sudden death in 2012 affected the second season of the show's successful revival with the plotline of J.R. being murdered in the fifth episode. The producers have said that "90 percent" of the story was saved but obviously not the ending: Finally united after various challenges, the Ewings walk into the boardroom of Ewing Electric only to find a smirking J.R. inform them that he's taken over as sole owner.

As the name might suggest the series was set in Texas, based around the Ewings, a large DysfunctionalFamily of oil barons. Family patriarch John Ross "Jock" Ewing had built up Ewing Oil and married Eleanor "Miss Ellie" Southworth, the daughter of a rancher and together they had three sons:

* BigNo: [[spoiler: In "Trouble At Ewing 23" an extortionist threatens to blow up said oil field if he doesn't get millions of dollars. Although the security guards kill him, he manages to set the bombs off before expiring, unleashing a slowmotion BigNo from Bobby before the field blows up real good.]]

* EveryoneIsASuspect: "Who shot J.R.?" was a big deal not because someone wanted to kill him but because ''everyone'' had reason to kill him by then.

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: By it's final couple of the seasons the original run had lost most of its classic era cast with the exception of JR Ewing himself, Bobby, Cliff and a few minor supporting characters, greatly eroding the BigScrewedUpFamily nature of show. The combination of a mostly new and younger cast, different locations, soapier storylines in general and in the finale an outright shift into the supernatural with an ItsAWonderfulPlot ending made late ''Dallas'' a very different animal to the beast it had been in its prime.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: When communist Romania started airing this show, they were hoping that people would be appalled at the decadent, materialistic lifestyle of the Ewings. [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp It didn't quite]] [[HoleInFlag work out that way]].
