5.0 out of 5 stars Dallas 8: One of the Best Seasons To Watch, February 20, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dallas: Season 8 (DVD)
Dallas 8 is one of the best seasons of Dallas. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see the season, when I started working as a teenager. It was a treat to finally get to see the entire season in its entirety.

Highlights: Morgan Brittany going off in the deep end, when she finally confesses to shooting Bobby. The appearance of Donna Reed starring as Miss Ellie. Sorry, but the way she was fired from the show was wrong. Donna gave a different approach to Miss Ellie and probably would have been much better in season 9. The decision of Miss Ellie's to finally take down the portrait of Jock at Southfork to make Clayton Farlow feel more at home. The appearance of Jenilee Harrison as Jamie Ewing. Jenilee
proves she has developed as an actress since she left Three's Company in 1982. The fight between Sue Ellen and Pamela Ewing at Pam's house and then,the reconcillation as the two of them both touring Hong Kong, beautiful scenary, to look for Mark Grayson. The love story of Jenna Wade and Bobby Ewing is great. However, I was disappointed when she was unable to marry Bobby due to her daughter's Charlie kidnapping. Priscilla Presley proves to be not only a beautiful lady but a gifted actress. The murder trial and the conviction makes you feel sorry for her and then finally, the decision of Bobby getting back with Pam. I always thought the two of them should have gotten married, especially since Victoria Principal ends up leaving the show two seasons from now. The return of Mitch Cooper and his remarriage to Lucy. Finally, the dream death scene of Bobby being killed and dying in the hospital. I actually started crying, when he was saying goodbye to his family. Actually, in this scene, I thought Priscilla did not do a good job when she was watching Bobby die.
Personal Disappointments: The appearance of Dack Rambo as Jack Ewing, conceit should have his picture in the dictionary. The boring story line of Donna and Ray fighting over Donna wanting to own her own oil company. Lucy's stint working as a waitress and finding another man to sleep with for the zillionith time. The boring story line of Deborah Shelton as Mandy Winger being woo by J.R. Ewing. Don't get me wrong Deborah Shelton is one of the most beautiful women ever on t.v. but she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. The return of Sue Ellen's drinking again for the zillionith time, which may give recovered alcoholics a reason to go back to the bottle.

All and all, it was hard to stop watching the dvd set. The episodes seem to be more interesting than the season before. Patrick Duffy appears to give more depth in this season, maybe because he thought he will be leaving the show for good. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

While I agree with you that Donna Reed did a fine job as Miss Ellie, the actress actually died very soon into season nine. Therefore it turned to be good that Barbara Bel Geddes returned.
