The Good: As for the quality of the transfer to DVD, I can't complain.

She ends up heading to lunch with JR, who confides in her that he would be very grateful to anyone who helped get Cliff out of Ewing Oil.

As one who likes to have all the Dallas seasons in my collection, I'm very glad to have this.

This to me was actually one of my favorite, if not my favorite seasons. I thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through. I know ratings dipped after Linda Gray's departure, but for me she was not the show and I loved what was there. This season had an exciting hip new main title, which now included George Kennedy and Cathy Podewell, as well as newcomers Kimberly Foster, Sasha Mitchell, and Lesley Anne Down. I neglected to mention in my last review that Charlene Tilton also returned to the main title last season and continued here as well. This season was powered by a timely storyline about a Ewing Oil Tanker crash, Bobby's marriage to April, JR's tumultuous marriage with his second wife, and the arrival of the grown son he never knew he had, James. Jessica Montfort also returns to cause trouble, and Clayton and Ellie end up involved in a scheme which will bring Dusty Farlow back later. What is exciting about this year is the setup-you have some classic members of the Ewing family alongside some new ones and new enemies, thus making the year fresh and interesting today for those who neglected it when it first aired. It is the final year for Charlene Tilton, reduced to basically just a recurring character, as well as Barbara Bel Geddes, who left somewhat unexpectedly at the end of the season. The last year is sort of a tragic one about the downfall of the family, thus this year is very interesting dramatically-it is the last time that a full Ewing house and family is present and has some hope for a good future. Perhaps written down in this review one can't see the magic of the season, but for whatever reason, for me in particular, perhaps because for me 89-90 I was 4 and 5,the nostalgia of the era sort of creeps through.Read more ›

I had a memory that this season was really bad, but it is far stronger than some of the latter seasons and keeps the flag flying for the great series quite well. Of course there is a gap with Linda Gray missing and a few too many new characters, but the invention of JR's long lost son is a stroke of genius and Sasha Mitchell's playing of him is a suitable mix of scheming sexuality and charm. Also introducing a vixen is a good idea, a few too many good girls floating around, we needed an Abby Ewing type to boil the pot a bit. In all, not a bad season, though as with season twelve, the standard of the prints vary enormously and none are of the standard of some of the early seasons of the show. One more season and a couple of telemovies and the collection will be complete. Best scene in the season; Barbara Bel Geddes (in one of her last great moments) giving Larry Hagman the letter from Jock. She is so missed and the last season was much poorer without her.
PS I wonder whatever happened to young Joshua Harris who plays Christopher, he is a fabulous child actor, so natural and unaffected.

**NOTE - This review contains SPOILERS**

It's Season 13 of "Dallas" and JR has gotten Ewing Oil in hot water again by buying a run-down oil tanker that causes an oil spill by "accidentally" ramming a rival tanker belonging to Carter McKay (George Kennedy)!

That pretty much sums up the main business storyline in this penultimate season of the now-decayed prime-time soap. With the original, strong female leads gone (Principal, Gray and Susan Howard), the show has become too male-dominated. Since the cast and crew stopped filming in Texas as of this season, there is a sterile feeling about the show as hardly any of the action takes place at Southfork, indoors or out. It just doesn't seem like the same "Dallas" anymore--it's tired and limping along as many long-running programs do at the sputtering end of their run.

The old flame (Gayle Hunnicut) that JR reunited with last season in Europe shows up in Dallas--and her son James Beaumont (Sasha Mitchell) arrives with her and drops a bombshell: He's JR's firstborn son! Things get complicated when Cally begins turning to James when she realizes her marriage is disintegrating and to keep things interesting the writers have JR commit himself to an insane asylum in order to make contact with Clayton's deranged sister Jessica. This allows the wonderful Alexis Smith to return not having been seen since Season 7. Unfortunately, she isn't given much to do that's worthy of her talents.

With Cliff now a partner at Ewing Oil and old nemesis Jeremy Wendell out of the picture, JR's main foil is Carter McKay. The business backstabbing has become stagnant and old and Kennedy's emotional outbursts are often hammy.

Another great dallas season will be released in 13th of April and only one full season is left to complete the series and 3 tv movies which i hope they will be released after dvd season 14 is being released and i'm talking about the 1986 prequel DALLAS:THE EARLY YEARS and the post series movies, 1996 JR:RETURNS and 1998 WAR OF THE EWINGS.
Season 12 ended with sue ellen threating JR with releasing the movie about him which was hardly a cliffhanger which was normally left out of the fav Dallas top 10 cliffhangers as they were voted by the dallas fans and u can see this top 10 in one of the dallas dvd seasons releases as a special feature. From the 13 regular seasons the three clifhangers which were left out of the top 10 were the clifhangers of DVD SEASON 5 (Clif hospitalised), season 12 (sue ellen treatens JR) and season 13 finale.
With hopes of a new and final reunion movie i leave u to enjoy the rest of the dalla seasons and let's hope we get a full prequel dallas series which will tell the events set between the arise of jock ewing and the events of dallas dvd season 1 in 1978.
I hope if they do this series they do it right.
