The producers of TNT's new "Dallas" were on the right track by not trying a reboot but instead continuing the story of the classic prime-time soap with a mix of old and new characters. Still -- it's a pretty big legacy to live up to. But by owning the twist-laden and over-the-top antics that made the original a hit, "Dallas" 2.0 made itself into a remarkably fun way to spend a summer evening. Groundbreaking? Not hardly. But fun? All kinds of it.
