The Good

Only 14 more seasons to go and this entire show will be on DVD!

The Bad

No extras.Dallas: The Complete Tenth Season would be better off being called "The J.R. Ewing Show." And what better time for that considering the state of the world in this show (the mid-1980s) and the time we are living in now? I could spend my writing time going through the litany of back stabbing subplots on this show, but I am much more excited to talk about J.R.'s dealings with the Saudis. After getting involved with a mercenary who blows up some of their oil fields, J.R. finds himself with even bigger problems then his friends in Texas: The Feds. When this mercenary finds out that Mr. Ewing is talking the talk, J.R.'s life suddenly gets a whole lot more complicated.

This is just one of the many plots that is layered into Dallas: The Complete Tenth Season.


No extras came with this release.


Standard Version. Presented in a format preserving the aspect ratio of its original television exhibition. These shows looked good. As I have recently stated in other reviews, Warner Bros. always does a good job in bringing out these multi-disc releases. There was some dirt on the some of the images, but for the most part things look really cleaned up.


Dolby Digital. English: Mono. The sound across all 3 discs in this collection was good. I am not going to say that it was great mainly because nothing really grabbed my attention too much. However, I never heard any sort of distortion and the gala Dallas eling it always has.


The front cover of this purple colored slipcase release features headshots of all the major players in this season. The back showcases more shots from this show, a description of what Dallas: The Complete Eighth Season is about, a Special Features listing, credits list and technical specs. All 3 discs are now stored in one amaray case which features more artwork from the show as well as episode listings, descriptions and airdates.

Final Word

Once again, I can't help but wonder if the folks at Warner Bros. have been reading my reviews. I say that because the packaging for this show is noticeably scaled down. With everything stuffed into an amaray case this gives them a chance to obtain a lot more shelf space. In addition to that it also helps DVD collectors like myself that are used to these multi-disc sets coming in much larger packaging.

While at this point in its 10th season I am not sure how great of a show Dallas is or isn't, I will say that I love the fact that it has the ability to keep me guessing.
