5.0 out of 5 stars Bar none: one of the best seasons, if not THE best., July 3, 2007
This review is from: Dallas: Season 6 (DVD)
Dallas season 6(really season 5) is unbelievable.like some other seasons, the storylines and arcs in this season come fast and strong. I even liked this season more than season 3, which everyone seems to favor the most. But i think this is my favorite with the season before it maybe in 2nd place.The end of the previous season, everyone finds out Cliff Barnes attempted suicide partly because of being cheated by J.R.Miss Ellie tells him something to the effect of" You are a cold and unfeeling man,J.R, and as soon as BObby gets back( from California with pam, investigating christophers birth),I will dismantle you as president of Ewing OIL", and in this season opener, she does just that...Little does she know J.R, soon runs another oil business,Harwood Oil, via a pretty little thing named Holly Harwood, who at once becomes Jr's reluctant ally,and then rival. Holly plans her revenge,and has much to do with changing his and SueEllens life in a way that has reprecussions for the rest of the series.The previous seasons, you got glimpses that Pam and Bobbys marraige was headed for trouble.When Jocks will is read and announces the fight for Ewing oil, their marraige cannot survive the intense change in Bobby and the toll it takes.In some episodes Bobby is irritable and downright nasty!(around the time he and ray are following Walt Driscoll), and this is the first season Bobby resorts to J.R like tactics like blackmail, to get his way in the business world..also worth mentioning is the more prominent reintroduction ( she was introduced in a previous season as were many other characters)of Cliff and pams devious half sister Katherine Wentworth, and Prescilla Pointer as their mother, Rebecca respectively. Miss Ellie gets closer with Clayton....boring, and Cliff is an amazing actor,,,he really owns the scenes he is in and ended up as one of my favorite characters as the series progressed although i feel he was unlikeable in the early seasons.lastly, The Lucy/Mickey storyline just kills me.The writing and chemisty between is so soft, and feels so special, you almost forget you are watching two characters in a tv show...I dont want to give anything away, but they make him out to be the love of Lucys life, certainly much more of a connection than she ever had with Mitch.Their story arc culminates in a very important plot point ...Charlene Hilton(lucY) is another one that won me over this season, from the abortion storyline at the beginning of the season( she was really pregnant by the time they started shooting the season, which explains all the funny/clever ways they had her sitting down or standing behind something for the first few episodes), to the Mickey storyline, you could really see what a good actress she was, and her costar was very talented too.All the episodes are excellent, none are boring,like all dallas seasons, the last 4 or 5 episodes are especially juicy, and the season finale office confrontation between J.R and Pam is classic, I promise you will want to watch this season over and over.

I agree, especially with the Lucy/Mickey storyline. I really like their chemistry.
