It ran for 13 years and 357 episodes and was shown in over 90 countries. Somehow the rather modest house out in Parker, TX (15 miles northeast of Dallas) does not quite capture all the pomp and grandeur portrayed in one of the most popular TV shows of all time.

Only exterior shots were filmed here but for some reason the inside is decorated as if the Ewing's actually lived there. It was a bit hard to wrap our minds around that... Makes sense that most production was in Hollywood - the scalding Dallas summers would have made exterior filming miserable. We visited on a slow day and our tour guide was desperate to not let us go with seeing (and photographing) every closet and cupboard.

Worth a visit, even for the casual fan and rumor is, they plan a new series in 2011 on TNT.
