Dallas: The Complete Twelfth Season (DVD)
Season Twelve introduces us to the new Mrs. J.R. Ewing! J.R. has always been a horndog with the Southern Belles, but this season, it all comes back to bite him. A careless dalliance with an Arkansas cutie leads J.R. to the wrong end of a shotgun, 10 years of hard labor, a prison break and ultimately, the altar again. And that’s just the start of another suds-filled season of emotion, promotion and commotion that also includes a tell-all movie (bankrolled by the first Mrs. J.R. Ewing) threatening to unveil every underhanded, low-down trick J.R. ever pulled and a rival oil man scheming to destroy the Ewing empire, taking the clan from Southfork all the way to Austria and Russia!]]>

This was Linda Gray's last season on Dallas and I could never really accept Cally as his wife. No one could replace Sue Ellen. JR and Sue Ellen were just a great couple to watch!
Never got into the trips abroad in this season or later seasons.
Linda Gray directed an episode at the end of the season which was spectacular with the ball room dancing and the lovemaking scene with Bobby and April was so artfully done.
Update: I'm into episode 15 and Sue Ellen is only having occasional eye spasms, But now I'm laughing hysterically at the opening night at The Metroplex. The young extras they cast for the club scene didn't know how to dance as couples so the director must've told them to try and just disco dance to the jazz ensemble playing the shmaltzy ballroom tunes! Fantastic!! rofl!!
Update: It would have been amazing if the Carringtons and the Colbys were in attendance in Vienna...They would have had every reason to have been there!
The segment which started the season is "Let's give J.R. a young bride." This storyline puts our hero (Larry Hagman again giving Emmy-worthy performances) in mortal peril by a pair of yokels (Cliff Potts and Sherman Howard) that he runs into after he has taken their young sister to bed. The eldest Ewing son finds himself a member of a chain gang, an escapee, and eventually the husband of the much younger Callie, wonderfully played by Cathy Podewell.
From that storyline the show moves to "Let's see how Sue Ellen gets her revenge." This gives the former Mrs. J.R. Ewing (Linda Gray) the opportunity to plan for the ultimate "payback" as the producer of a film that will reveal to the entire world how ruthless her former spouse is.
Then, the plot intertwines with "Let's see who will replace Bobby's beloved Pam." Bobby (Patrick Duffy) is involved with not one, not two, but three women during this season: an old flame from his past (Irena Ferris), a new one (Beth Toussaint), and one who is trying her best to get on his good side and his into his bed (Sheree J. Wilson). By the end of the year, Pam becomes a memory and the youngest Ewing son has found her replacement.
Finally, the season ends with "Let's show 'Dynasty' how it's done and REALLY go to Europe." Like its chief competition, Dallas has a storyline where many of the principal characters go to Europe, but the cast and crew did go wherein "Dynasty's" European trip was on a Hollywood set. The trip allowed for some magnificent locations which made up for a rather lackluster ending to the season.
As the season progresses, the show will see the departure of several major characters which would leave the next two years spent seeking to continue this "experiment" with new players to interact with the one reason for the show's existence in the first place: J.R.
This particular season compilation is possibly the worst transfer of them all, with occasional "blurry" images and poor sound. However, inasmuch as there are no "extras," it's obvious that Warner Brothers is not worried about its customers who, like me, will buy the show regardless of the quality of the release.
