The name of the Dallas episode this week, “The Furious and the Fast” (season 2, episode 7) immediately made me think of The Fast and the Furious — partly because I might by dyslexic and partly because I used to have the world’s biggest crush on Paul Walker.
When his big movie came out in 2001, I was smitten with the blond actor whose looks are a lot more attractive than his acting skills… if you know what I mean. My love for Paul made me immediately dislike the dark-haired minx you all know better as Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster) because, well, she was playing his love interest.
I think the point I’m getting at here is, I have never been able to look at Jordana the same since Furious premiered. Not when she got ripped to shreds (spoiler alert!) in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. And certainly not when she became Southfork’s hottest ticket (besides oil).
So thank you, writers of Dallas, for bringing me back down memory lane and making me remember my awkward crush on Paul Walker. Just please, next week, don’t title an episode “Then and Now” …I had a teenaged crush on Devon Sawa, too!
