They had this glorious opportunity to really delve into these aspects of time and its passage, and they royally blew it. I am obviously not talking about a movie where they age everybody 25 years, but where the actual 25 years have passed.
Well, only Dallas
And they blew it in their own way. There's a revival that really should have gone full camp pastiche, but instead became a bland shadow of the original.
Yeah, I missed that one, you're right. Here though most of the core cast was available, with the exception of Frank Silva. Even Michael Ontkean was seemingly into it at one point early on. Strange.
Although I've read over and over again that Ontkean didn't join TR because he's retired from acting, judging by the quality of the writing, especially when it came to Sheriff Truman, one has to wonder if Ontkean jumped ship because he didn't like what Lynch had done to the characters.
