Dallas: The Complete Thirteenth Season (DVD)
Southfork welcomes another Mrs. Bobby Ewing…and another J.R.! For J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), Season 13 is about as unlucky as a steer at a Texas barbecue. He starts out the season by lying and cheating Ewing Oil to the brink of destruction and ends by kicking and screaming in a psychiatric hospital. In between, he tires of his pretty young wife, seethes while Cliff Barnes’s political star rises… and meets the long-lost son he didn’t know he had. Meanwhile, Clayton and Miss Ellie investigate a multiple-murder mystery, folks from seasons past unexpectedly return to stir up trouble and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) stays busy removing J.R.’s knives from his back, chasing after a Pam look-alike, and bringing a new Mrs. Ewing (Sheree Wilson) to Southfork. With a cast that now included George Kennedy, Cathy Podewll as well as newcomers Kimberly Foster, Sasha Mitchell and Lesley Anne Down, y’all come ’round and meet the happy family!]]>

This, the actual season TWELVE, has a mixture of pluses and minuses which could be listed as follows:
1) The addition of Kimberly Foster as April's sisters Michele
Foster is not only a knockout in the looks department but does a pretty credible job as the girl who will do whatever it takes to become a success.
2) The return of Alexis Smith
Even though the storyline about the mysterious murders is really too "Murder, She Wrote," it's still good to see Smith as the Clayton's loopy sister, Jessica
3) Omri Katz and Joshua Harris as youngsters John Ross and Christopher, respectively
I wonder why the two actors were not asked to reprise their roles in the upcoming TNT "re-boot" of the series but they did get to effectively show their acting mettle in this season.
4) Leslie-Anne Down as Stephanie Rogers
Down is presented as a female equal to J.R. but is underutilized, appearing in only a handful of episodes. It would have been nice if the character had been introduced earlier to see how she and Hagman would've played off each other.
5) Cathy Podewell comes into her own
Podewell, as the latest Mrs. J.R. Ewing, is quite strong as a woman who must cope with her husband's infidelities and his every effort to run her off Southfork. She really gets to show her versatility as an actress, jumping effortlessly from scorned spouse to plotting her own brand of "payback."
1) Sasha Mitchell
Perhaps, the idea of giving J.R. a "love child" was a good one but Mitchell's acting was not up to the part. And what was with the guy's hands? It's like the actor couldn't decide what to do with them, constantly moving them in an almost-Joe-Cocker-like-spasm.
2) The number two plus above is also a minus as well. Turning Miss Ellie (Bel Geddes) and Clayton (Howard Keel) into Jessica Fletchers comes across as nothing more than "let's-give-the-old-folks-something-to-do-before-they-ride-off-into-the-sunset." It was just dumb.
3) Jeri Gaile as Carter McKay's wife Rose
Though Gaile plays her part well, the question always arises as to "What's the point of having her character in the show in the first place?"...other than to have her flounce around the house in skimpy attire.
4) Bobby and April
Sorry, but they're about as exciting as Ray and Donna. Let's face it. Bobby (Patrick Duffy) was only interesting when he was with Pam.
5) The season finale
This is possibly the dumbest one in the show's history, ranking up there with a certain shower scene!
The DVD itself lacks in picture and sound quality. Occasionally, there is some discoloration as well as sound fading. Only English subtitles are available.
JR starts cheating on his new wife, Cally. No surprise there! It would be out of character if he didn't. Plus once a cheater, always a cheater.
My favorite part is when JR gets the hair brained idea to commit himself to a mental hospital so he can gain access to Jessica Montford (Clayton's sister) so he can get her to sign a legal document. Needless to say this does not turn out well!
Season 12 ended with sue ellen threating JR with releasing the movie about him which was hardly a cliffhanger which was normally left out of the fav Dallas top 10 cliffhangers as they were voted by the dallas fans and u can see this top 10 in one of the dallas dvd seasons releases as a special feature. From the 13 regular seasons the three clifhangers which were left out of the top 10 were the clifhangers of DVD SEASON 5 (Clif hospitalised), season 12 (sue ellen treatens JR) and season 13 finale.
With hopes of a new and final reunion movie i leave u to enjoy the rest of the dalla seasons and let's hope we get a full prequel dallas series which will tell the events set between the arise of jock ewing and the events of dallas dvd season 1 in 1978.
I hope if they do this series they do it right.
