Series 1 - 5. Truth and Consequences

Truth and Consequences
Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

With the deeds to Southfork now in his name, JR gleefully tells Bobby that he’s past caring about their Momma’s legacy and sets about fracking the hell out of the land. Marta del Sol is also revealing her true colours: “I warned you not to toy with me!” she says in her best Fatal Attraction snarl before playing the sex tape featuring her and John Ross over and over.

In fact, barely anyone is now who they first appeared to be – even Anne has a skeleton in her closet, a sleazy oil baron ex by the name of Harris Ryland (played by X Files actor Mitch Pileggi), who looks set to cause trouble in her current marriage. You’ll be longing for Bobby to come over and toss his hiney out of a high-rise window.

About this programme

5/10. Bobby is furious to discover he has been duped and that JR holds the deeds to Southfork. However, Ann realises there is a way she can stop his plan - although it could prove costly. Rebecca and Tommy struggle to salvage their scheme, Elena and John Ross try to reach an understanding, and Christopher realises he may need to play dirty to overcome his foes.
