Utahn Aaron Allen wrote tonight's episode of Dallas (7 and 9 p.m., TNT), and it's a lot of fun.
Like the series itself, it's a smart, entertaining update of the iconic television series. It's great fun to watch.
Not to give too much away, but somebody is going to get murdered tonight. And one member of the Ewing clan will quickly fall under suspicion.
