It's... Dallas gets something right for a change.

Recommended Posts

I remember watching it on channel 13 with my older brother when I was a little kid.  

My parents did not like that.

We could watch this and Austin City Limits on KUHT out of Houston via antenna on Saturday nights if the weather was just right. Good times

I watched it from the first episode. Sunday night TV was boring af back then. While flipping through the channels (all 5 of them) I stumbled across something I'd never seen before on tv.... TITS!  Young RPM became an instant fan. Even had a Monty Python is a twit t-shirt that took about 15 minutes to get banned from wearing to school.

For as much shit as I like to give Dallas, this story doesn’t surprise me at all. Taking a chance on a great show like Monty Python is a Dallas story and may not have happened anywhere else.

Watched a bunch of Python/Open All Hours/other random British Comedy on 13 back in the day.  Good stuff, but I didn't know the story behind it winding up on 13.

I thought MP was standard public tv fare, but KERA had a super-competent and forward thinking staff back then.
