That's kinda how I got hooked on Dallas.
I didn't watch it the first few seasons until the "Who Shot J.R." cliffhanger. I started watching the summer reruns and by September, I couldn't wait for the new season to start. Watched it until the very end. Unfortunately, Dallas
was another show that went on one or two seasons too long.
It never fails tho'. They all go for too long it seems. Just thinking about the shows I loved but stopped watching because they grew lame—Frasier, Golden Girls, Designing Women,
even Little House on the Prairie.
After the kids had all grown up and were married, the storylines grew increasingly silly. Why can't popular shows go out on top instead of ending up at the bottom of the heap and then just throwing in the towel?
