5.0 out of 5 stars Season FIVE, really: the year of Jock's will, March 16, 2007
This review is from: Dallas: Season 6 (DVD)
Here comes another season of J.R.'s (Larry Hagman) double-dealing ways as he attempts, this time, to wrench control of Ewing Oil from his brother and his mother. The body count rises, literally and figuratively, as the dastardly anti-hero works his machinations for his ultimate ends.

New characters are introduced that play important parts in the developing story line while other characters find themselves more embroiled in the ongoing saga of the Ewing clan.

As far as the new are concerned, prominent among those are Holly Harwood (Lois Chiles) as a reluctant ally to J.R. She finds herself initially fascinated by the oil man but soon sees the real J.R. and eventually must decide where her allegiance lies.

Mark Grayson (John Beck) becomes the "third wheel" in a love triangle that causes a rift in the seemingly unbreakable marriage of Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Pam (Victoria Principal).

Ray's cousin, Mickey (Timothy Patrick Murphy) becomes the love interest of Lucy but, unfortunately, meets tragedy at the hands of one of the victims of J.R.'s dirty deals.

As far as the "old," Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) continues her "abused wife" ways as she remarries J.R., knowing full well his track rate for "faithfulness."

Ray (Steve Kanaly) and wife Donna (Susan Howard) have their own problems as she tries to balance marriage with an ever-rising political career.

Afton (Audrey Landers) must contend with her love for Cliff (Ken Kercheval) and his obsession with bringing down the Ewings and his love for Sue Ellen.

Lucy (Charlene Tilton) goes through divorce bangs and her burgeoning attraction to Mickey.

Miss Ellie (Barbara Bel Geddes) contends with her feelings for her late husband and her determination to bring an end to the family squabbles. In addition to those, she starts to find herself attracted to another man.

Besides the regulars, recurring characters get their moment to shine in this outstanding season as well. Punk Anderson (Morgan Woodard) stands out as a worthy successor to "Jock" as the one man that can really keep the Ewing boys in line. Besides that, he's one heckuva sharp dresser in his western-styled attire.

Pam's mom, Rebecca (Priscilla Pointer), makes her presence known as she works hard to support both her daughter and son.

Harv Smithfield (George O. Petrie) as the family lawyer must volley both sides of the fence as he must deal with his loyalty to the late Jock's wishes and his friendship with Miss Ellie.

Watching the episodes back to back, one can see how the producers spent a bundle on clothing and locations. Also, the sets were more lavish than in previous seasons, with upgrades at both the Ewing home and the offices.

Acting-wise, no one can top Hagman as the devilish J.R. His lack of an Emmy win is an unexplainable travesty in the history of television.
