A year of obsessions and tragedy,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dallas: Season 5 (DVD)
Major points of the season are as follows:
After suffering several miscarriages, Pam (Victoria Principal) is obsessed with motherhood.
Bobby (Patrick Duffy) is obsessed with finding the father of Kristen's baby.
Ray (Steve Kanaly) is obsessed in proving tht he can make it on his own without his wife Donna's (Susan Howard) money.
Cliff (Ken Kercheval) continues his obsession in destroying the Ewings.
Rebecca (Priscilla Pointer) is obsessed with proving herself a "good mother" after having abandoned her children when they were young.
In light of his impotency, Dusty (Jared Martin) is obsessed to show how much of a "man" is he.
Lucy (Charlene Tilton) is obsessed with winning her husband back, while hubby Mitch (Leigh J. McCloskey) is obsessed with making it on his own.
Lucy's photographer, Roger (Dennis Redfield), has an unhealthy obsession with her, leading him to begin stalking the model-wannabe.
Katherine (Morgan Brittany) begins her obsession with brother-in-law Bobby, which will come to a head when she mows him down in a couple of seasons.
Vaughn Leland (Dennis Patrick) returns in his obsessive quest to bring down J.R.
And J.R. (Larry Hagman) continues, after a few missteps, to run over everyone!
Also, the writers were able to stretch out the absence of "Jock" (the late Jim Davis) by having the character noticeably absent and finally "announcing" his death in a mid-season installment, thus opening the door for the fight for control of Ewing Oil.
"The Search" becomes a tribute to Davis, interspersed with clips from previous episodes that showcased the towering and much beloved actor.
Boy, did a lot happen in these twenty-two episodes!
