* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Among other notable character actors, the producers of the 2012 series seem hellbent on featuring every supporting cast member of the {{FOX}} series ''Series/TwentyFour'' they can find, including Carlos Bernard (Tony Almeida) as Vicente Cano, Glenn Morshower (Aaron Pierce) as Lou Rosen, Faran Tahir (Tomas Sherek) as Frank Ashkani and Annie Wersching (Renee Walker) as Alison Jones.
** [[Series/StargateAtlantis Colonel Caldwell]] has left the Air Force and is now in business in Dallas.
** Some of the early episodes feature [[GilligansIsland the "movie star" Ginger]].
** One of the minor characters near the end of the original run was portrayed by Barbara Eden. Somehow, it might make you think that [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie a genie and her master reunited again]].
** They also seem hellbent on featuring Desperate Housewives alumni in their cast - Mary Alice, John the Gardener, Aidan the Bad Boy...

* SavingTheWorldWithArt: A ploy by the communist Romanian government backfired when they allowed 'Dallas'' to air within the country, intending to show the [[{{Eagleland}} wasteful, brutal American lifestyle]]. Instead, it made the citizens wonder why they weren't living such nice lives under the current regime. During an interview, a teary-eyed Larry Hagman recounted when a citizen thanked him by saying that his character J.R. saved their country.

Added DiffLines:

* OldShame: Victoria Principal refused to have anything to do with the revival of the series. According to Patrick Duffy, this is because of the fact that she doesn't want the show to interfere with her current occupation running a cosmetic company.
** Everyone involved has been fairly upfront that Victoria was never really friends with the rest of the cast and wasn't really part of the inner circle of Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Ken Kercheval. The creator of the revival has said fairly explicitly that she doesn't even really want Victoria back and the rest of the cast don't seem to worked up about it either.

** Larry Hagman died from throat cancer during production of the second season. The production crew worked around this by "jury-rigging" scenes to feature J.R. speaking to other characters (cobbled together from spare footage and voiceovers). While they had originally planned to keep J.R. around for years even in the event of Hagman's death (as an offscreen figure doing other tasks separate from the main cast), his sudden death forced the crew to rework several shots Hagman filmed as a final conversation with John Ross in "Furious and Fast".
