Irony on the 13th season of Dallas...

So I've been watching old Dallas episodes again.  Season 13 has actually been very interesting and ironic, given what's been going on in the Gulf of Mexico.  The season, which aired in the fall of '89 around the time of the Exxon Valdez Alaskan oil spill, is all about how J.R. Ewing is responsible for an enormous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  On the episode I last watched, some people ruined the Ewing's swimming pool by dumping barrels of crude oil into it.  The show goes into how the spill is a public relations nightmare and how it's destroying the environment...  I wonder if the show's writers had a crystal ball...
