RIP Larry Hagman

Hi all, I'm sorry I haven't been around much, I dont understand the whole troll situation and I don't care to. But I had to start a post about the late great Larry Hagman. He's brought so much joy to four generations of my family. It's difficult for me, I havent been this devestated over a celebrity since Princess Diana's death. Are there any other Larry fans or I dream of jeannie fans that would like to share a memory?

I highly recommend watching IDOJ the governor's wife, it's on YT and it is one of the funniest darn thngs I've ever seen.

RIP Larry, you were larger than life and what a life you've lived.

I grew up watching Larry on "Jeannie." When that show went off the air, I wonder if he ever dreamed he'd go on to even bigger fame a decade later.

He was a fine actor and a very interesting man.

Jeannie was another favorite of mine as I grew up, Mr. Hagman was great on that show, but then again, that show just had a really great cast in general: Barbara Eden was wonderful, and both Bill Daily and Hayden Roarke made for great supporting characters as well - love Daily's sense of humor (I like the joke he cracked about how he got the part of Major Roger Healey because he slept with Sidney Sheldon)), and you couldn't help but always feel sorry for Dr. Bellows. XD

I never really saw Dallas, but I know Hagman was known for his role of J.R. Ewing on that show... in fact, I think that role may have made him more famous that Tony Nelson.

It's sad that he's among the many greats we've lost this year. :(

your not alone!

here stands too a larry hagman fan. i was pretty young when the jeannie show came out. so the slapstick humor of the show made more sense to me. a little too young to get some of the adult humor. much like M*A*S*H in its first few years.

the show still was excellent! as BDOR stated the other actors were very good aswell. ofcourse, now being full grown, babs eden sure has made an impression (hubba hubba).

how opposite the character was jr ewing? at first i didnt really like hagman for taking the part. it was obvious though he nailed it. it wasnt long before my whole family was glued to the set every week!

i didnt post anything when hagman passed. i didnt know if it was appropriate on a M*A*S*H site (im still kinda new here). but since you guys did, id like it known i mourn the loss too.

PEACE!!!!

I never watched J.R. on Dallas, but I watched my share of "I Dream Of Jeannie"'s. I always thought his character was a little too stuck-up and self-absorbed, you know he never took Jeannie places, he took her for granted. He stayed glued to his work and other girls (as long as he could). I think the show would have been cool if Maj. Nelson would have given Jeannie to Maj. Healey. I mean, he was crazy about her, he would make her happy making him happy, you know. But I loved the show as a whole and its Ideas. I've always been a fan of both Bill Daily and Larry Hagman. Its sad that he and so many other Timeless Greats passed on last year.
