Veteran actor Larry Hagman has branded modern TV shows as "rubbish".
The outspoken star will reprise his J.R. Ewing role in the much hyped TV return of cult '80s show Dallas - and he can't wait for fans to see the series, as he believes audiences are bored of today's programmes.
He says, "I dont think there is anything as good on television today. I barely watch TV apart from the news. Most of it is rubbish. There's all this reality nonsense and dross.
"I think there is a market for a well-produced, well-written melodrama like Dallas. It's pure entertainment."
If you really have the time and inclination to go back and watch 77 episodes...
