Dallas is more than just a city in Texas. It's a state of mind. It's a world where everyone wears cowboy hats and lusts after oil money and people die in horrible car accidents and then step out of the shower without a spot on them. There's Dallas and then there's "Dallas," and for those of us who have never lived in the Lone Star State, those two are often one and the same. But "Dallas" isn't the only TV series to shape our views of Texas and its people. Here are some other dearly departed series that helped shape our national view of the land where everything's bigger.
Where? Big D, a.k.a. Dallas
Only in Texas: J.R. Ewing was a liar and a cheater and a swindler. And people loved him.
Who wears cowboy hats? J.R., at right, loves 'em. So does his brother, Bobby.
