'Blood & Oil' Wants to Be 'Empire' But It Just Isn't Slick Enough

In 1986, the return of Patrick Duffy as Bobby helped Dallas win its first head-to-head skirmish with hip, Technicolor rival, Miami Vice. The prime-time soap continued to dominate for the duration of the season and beyond. Now, almost 30 years later, Don Johnson, who once made America safe for neon blazers and shoes without socks, returns to TV with a prime-time soap of his own, Blood & Oil, which debuted on ABC on Sunday, September 27. ...more

BUT I recently discovered captions at the movies! They are not available in all theaters or on all screens at theaters that offer captions, but I hope this becomes a new trend....more
