Show us your tweets: J.R.'s funeral edition

Posted 7:26pm on Tuesday, Mar. 12, 2013

Last November, we all said goodbye to Larry Hagman, the Dallas star who died while the show reboot's second season on TNT was still in production. The series said goodbye to his character, J.R. Ewing, on Monday night with a funeral episode that featured cameos from Jerry Jones, Mark Cuban and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. Judging from Twitter, so many viewers wept through the whole episode that we're imagining people wringing out their sofas this week. Here are some of the reactions.

Tissues out. Wine poured. It's time to watch #dallastnt

Do not watch last night's offering from @Dallas_TNT if you're already depressed. The ep is so moving that I'm a wreck now.


And another thing about J.R.'s funeral and visitation: Where was Nolan Ryan?!? Cubes and Jerry made it. #DallasTNT #Dallas


Started off my day [Tuesday] blaring the "Dallas" theme song at my office, in memory of a Texas legend. #GodBlessJREwing #DallasTNT


Didn't know they still did "chalk outlines" at a murder scene. Hadn't seen that since the 80's. @Dallas_TNT


Just watched the Memorial episode of @Dallas_TNT. I'm not gonna admit to crying. I'm not. #rememberingjr


Husband is forcing me to watch The Bachelor. Pure #Torture #stupidshow #patheticwomen. Put back on #DallasTNT
