When we first heard that Logo’s next original series was The A-List: Dallas, coming to the network October 10, we had mixed emotions.
A-List: New York is certainly an embarrassing mess but the shenanigans of the desperate characters have grown on us like a fungus. Could some Dallas queen side-eye like Derek? Or mangle the English language like Rodiney? Or rescue hors d’oeuvres like TJ?
So it was with some trepidation we braved the premiere party for The A-List: Dallas Wednesday night in Chelsea.
Believe it or not, we enjoyed the show.
A-List: The Cowboy Way is stupid in the best, most entertaining way. Sure there are catfights, gossip sessions and cringe-worthy drunken moments. But there are also rodeos, Republicans, real jobs and Bible-study sessions. And it’s actually funny. Whereas the cast of New York all exude a sort of cynical/miserable aura, the Dallas cast seem to be enjoying themselves. (Something people in the Big Apple often forget to do.) On the red carpet they all seemed to get along in a way that the New York cast most definitely does not.
That doesn’t mean these hellcats don’t have claws: When asked what set Dallas apart from the original series, cast member Taylor said, “We’re younger, we’re hotter, we have less wrinkles, and we’re actually interesting!” Fellow castmate Phillip agreed and added, ”I think we’re funnier!”
We aren’t going to take sides on the hotness debate, but the Dallas cast is definitely younger and funnier (purposefully or not).
NEXT: Meet the cast !
