Dallas: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
Power, wealth, sex ... and glorious extravagance. They all find a home in the sprawling saga of the Ewing clan in Dallas. Revel in the saga that held the world in thrall for more than a decade: Led by the man everyone loves to hate, J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), there is no limit to what members of this family will do in the pursuit of power, wealth and revenge in a feud that started 40 years ago over an empire in oil and the love of a woman.]]>
Dallas: The Complete Sixth Season begins with a bang: Miss Ellie (Barbara Bel Geddes), Bobby (Patrick Ewing) and Lucy (Charlene Tilton) vote to remove J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) as president of Ewing oil. Big stuff, but J.R. soon lands a job running competitor Harwood Oil. Meanwhile, in this classic primetime soap, J.R. and brother Bobby find themselves on opposite ends of a titanic clash set in motion by patriarch Jock Ewings will once the latter is declared legally dead. And now that he is officially deceased, Jock's widow, Miss Ellie, becomes interested in a social life again. This results in some discomfort for J.R., who wants his mom to be mom, despite having almost blackmailed her in the first place to release the will. Ludicrous as it all might sound, Dallas is always nothing less than absorbing, and the changes and surprises that come with the territory--the ever-shifting alliances, the come-from-behind victories, the constant scheming to tear down family and friends--are fascinating.
In Dallas: The Compete Fifth Season, J.R. won back his estranged wife, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). Yet she seems to be having second thoughts about life as a Ewing, prompting J.R. to take another crack at convincing her to stay with him--while doing his bidding in unscrupulous business maneuvers, of course. Sue Ellen and sister-in-law Pamela (Victoria Principal) become unexpectedly close, and even more unexpected is Pamela's request to husband Bobby that he drop the fraternal competition with J.R. to run Ewing Oil for good. Abortions, tensions, and a chance for longtime, obsessive enemy of the Ewings Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval), so recently comatose, to get even with his nemesis are all on the menu. As usual, watching Dallas is like witnessing a car crash and being too mesmerized to leave. --Tom Keogh

Season 6 for me is most notable for the underrated John Beck as Mark Graison debut. I always liked his character, and I hate to say it, I feel he and Pam had better chemistry than Bobby and Pam. I also felt Priscilla Presley's Jenna Wade had better chemistry with Bobby "Go Figure".
I have watched these seasons 1-12 at least 20 times, not including when they ran it on the Soap Channel, I did not watch during the original run, but I do remember Who Shot JR vividly, the incredible media hype, I was only 8 years old so did not pay attention to the show when Mom was watching. Typically I just watch these sets beginning to end. I do own 13 and 14, but I usually bail out early into season 13... No way to sugar coat it, terrible TV, they just ran out of ideas. With Pam and Sue Ellen both Gone, the new blood was frankly boring.
I did like Sheri J. Wilson as April Stevens, once they Kill her off, other than JR and Bobby it's pretty sad.
I even watched every episode of the TNT series. While not perfect, it was exactly what I hoped for, though they could have focused more on original cast once it was clear new audience wasn't being created.
Just get everything if your a die hard Dallas fan, you'll get addicted to the show all over again.
This season, JR and Bobby are fighting over Ewing Oil. Even with 2-sided DVDs (that will not play in my laptop), there are like 6 discs for your viewing pleasure. The business discussions are long and tedious and oftentimes complicated. It is really not entertaining at all. After SueEllen and JR get back together, SueEllen basically just sits around all dressed up and pretty. Lucy is dating Ray's nephew after a kidnapping, rape, and abortion.
Ms. Ellie is a pivotal character; she and Pam and Marilee Stone seem to be the only smart women on the show.
As as adult, I didn't realize how old the characters were on the show. Clayton, however, was viewed as too old for SueEllen. I personally think SueEllen should have been matched with another guy. As an adult, I don't see JR and SueEllen as a good couple.
Bobby is the best male character this season; getting down in the dirt with JR while still looking hot doing it.
A Romeo and Juliet romance between Lucy Ewing and ranch hand Mickey Trotter adds some humor to this season. It also showed a little more depth to Charlene Tilton's acting skills than in her "poor little rich girl" persona.
All of the stories are tied together and end in several tragedies including drunk driving, blackmail and revenge attempts.
Better that the next season for sure.
The special features this time incudes a documentary about the infuence of Dallas on pop culture asserting that people as well as other tv shows imitated Dallas and that the show was a reflection of the 80's "me generation" of greed. The Ultimate Dallas website is mentioned, the ranchhouse as well as yet another abbreviated recycling of "Who Shot JR?" media crapola. No comment obviously.
