I had never before watched a television soap opera, and I haven't since. But in college I became addicted to "Dallas," so much so that I taped the daily repeats while away on spring break. (It was the "Who Shot J.R." episode arc, and I had missed it the first go-around). Five consecutive hours of "Dallas" was more satisfying than I could have ever dreamed.
Anyway, somehow, Larry Hagman has made it to 74. His liver, meanwhile, celebrated its 10th birthday a little while back.
