    Very creative title. I like it.

    As far as Larry, R.I.P. He was a great actor.

    I used to watch I Dream of Jeanie when I was a little kid. I thought it really cool that there were astronauts. RIP.

    Aww, RIP Larry Hagman. I loved I Dream of Jeanie as a child. When I stayed hom from school sick, I always watched that.

    RIP Larry. I loved I Dream Of Jeannie, too. And Dallas wouldn't have been a phenomenon without him; the youngins here don't know, but the whole "Who shot JR?" thing was HUGE.

    I met Larry Hagman at burning man in 2007
    Nice guy. Gave us beers even though he said he couldn't drink them anymore himself.

    His nurse seemed to be having a rougher time than he was but she was cheerful and was apparently being paid well.

    Was sorry to learn about this one over the weekend. Dallas was such a huge show during my childhood. And being a child with a taste for the lurid and over-the-top, I adored it. When Hagmanís mother, actress Mary Martin, received a Kennedy Center Honor, he paid tribute to her in a very funny and heartfelt speech. Seemed like such a class act.

    Such a trip seeing him as a proto-Koch brother in Oliver Stone's Nixon:

    This is very true and it's hard to think of a parallel in recent years. I don't think there is one.

    Closest thing for me -- at least in terms of a talked-about and anticipated cultural tv moment -- but then I realized only something like 12 million people even watched this:

    right, while the key Dallas episode - not even a finale, but the episode where the shooter was revealed -- had 83 million viewers. Seven times the Sopranos closer.

    I've always found it amusing that even though all those people watched it, the question "No seriously: who actually shot JR?" has been a legitimately difficult bar trivia question for 20 something years now.

    Ha! I'd win that question!

    It was Kristin, the sister of JR's wife, Sue Ellen. Now, why she shot him, I haven't a clue anymore. I do have vague recollections they were having an affair (but that would be grounds for Sue Ellen to shoot him, not Kristin).

    I was too young, but wasn't Laura Palmer's death a pretty big deal for like a week?

    For us fans, yes, it was a big deal, but Twin Peaks never had the level of viewership that Dallas did, so "Who killed Laura Palmer?" is not on par with "Who shot JR?". Practically everyone on the planet watched Dallas in its heyday.

    If as many people knew who Laura Palmer was as knew who JR was then the Twin Peaks fans would have been over it before it started
