'Dallas' kicks off its second season — well, actually, its 16th season — with Christopher battling John Ross, Christopher battling Rebecca, Ann battling her ex-husband, J.R. battling Cliff, and so on and so on. It's all great fun. And, yes, the late Larry Hagman appears in this episode. His character, J.R., will die this season, and we're promised a proper send-off.
