March 21, 1980

On this day in history, you were probably staring at the TV with your mouth open. Evil rancher J.R. Ewing was sitting in a darkened home office when he heard noises. He got up and opened the door.

“Who’s there?” he called out.

And the reply was two gun shots.

It was March 21 and an infamous episode of the CBS hit Dallas. For the next eight months, you and the rest of the planet wanted to know: “Who shot J.R.?”

Don’t remember? We’re not telling.
