Phillip - the lawyer from Falcon Crest - was a business colleague of JRs
I initially watched Dallas on a black and white tv so I was shocked to see all the flowers, panelling, and shag carpets from the 1970's and 1980's during the episodes. I mean the DECOR of the homes was horrible. In addition, these people are RICH yet they have very small closets and I saw Ms. Ellie's clothes hanging on cheap wire hangers.
I loved the jeans though; I am looking for Gloria Vandervilts online as we speak. I received the jeans and in person 1970's jeans don't look that good. LOL!
As for the episodes, SueEllen is dating Dusty Farlow. Pam has decided not to have a child out of fear the child will develop neurofibromytosis. I looked up this disease and it seems unlikely that Pam would have passed this on to a child. Also, Pam and Cliff survived so they could have tried to have a child. Furthermore, a surrogate could have been used. I am not sure why the writers made such a big deal about pregnancy for women in the 1980's and 1990s on soap operas. On Falcon Crest, they also took away Melissa's ability to have a child after she lost a child.
Cliff was controlling the OLM for a while which was driving the Ewings out of business. JR then funded Cliff's campaign for Congress and then Cliff quit the OLM and Ewing Oil was back in business again. Jock, however, had to be tried for a 28 year old murder.
JR is dating SueEllen's sister, Kristen. Kristen thinks JR will leave SueEllen for her one day.
Ellie has breast cancer and loses a breast. Jock has an ex-wife that is in a sanatorium. ""Are you going to leave me like you did AMANDA?"
My opinion: This was a good season, but the shooting was definitely overly hyped. I find the show entertaining though.
NOTE: I bought my set BRAND NEW from Amazon. Several of the discs were scratched and would not play. I don't know who packaged these DVDs at the factory, but they clearly watched the DVDs before they packaged them.
Note 2: Amazon sent me a replacement set and these two sided DVDs get stuck in the player. Netflix has them one sided (I think) so I likely will not buy anymore sets since they are double sided and cause issues for the DVD player.
As another reviewer stated, this season wasn't really the season that the world anticipated ... it was actually the next season because people were desperate to learn the killer's identity. Still, this season has plenty of action in the build up to JR being shot - everyone hated him and you were left wondering who could have done it. This season was the very first soap to introduce a cliffhanger which captured the world. But interesting to note, the JR cliffhanger was not the originally intended cliffhanger for this season. Extra episodes were produced because of the show's incredible popularity, so there was a last minute decision not to go with the original cliffhanger of Jock being put on trial for murder (about four episodes before JR got shot).
DVD FEATURES: The episodes have had some clean-up done, but alot of dirt and softness in still evident - but considering the age it has to be expected. There are two episodes with commentary from Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray. The documentary "Who Shot JR Phenomenon" is a fantastic 20 minute presentation starring Patrick, Larry, Linda and Charlene reliving the magic and mayham of this cliffhanger, and how it affected their lives. Pure gold.
COMMENT ABOUT WARNER BROS: It is unfortunate that Warner Bros are so slow to release Dallas seasons on DVD. It has taken them a year to release this latest season, and according to reports, this is what will happen with the next installment (August 2006). Technology is rapidly moving, and I think Warner Bros should reconsider. DVD technology will be replaced before we know it. With 9 seasons all up, it would be great to release them all now (please!) thank you.
I got a brand new set of discs and yet disc 1 on both sides has several places where the show would stop entirely, yet the discs are physically pristine. I checked on a brand new DVD player to determine this isn't a problem that can (almost always) happen with older players. I also noticed this issue to a much lesser extent on a small part of one episode in Season 1/2. Be warned, hopefully you won't have a problem.
