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!]]>

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.
Overall, this season has it all, and really shows why this series had the resiliency to continue for another 2 seasons following. Not just the great story lines by great writers, but truly this was one of the best casts ever assembled for a TV series, all true professionals.
