Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Dallas: The Complete First and Second Seasons is an American equivalent to those British mini-series about historical chapters in that country's royal monarchy. Full of family in-fighting, political intrigue crossed with personal triumph or disappointment, and plenty of sensational infidelities and betrayals, Dallas is a captivating story of a wealthy oil family's power and travails. It is also uniquely fun and daringly absurd, albeit with a straight face; this hugely successful, primetime soap opera began in the late 1970s and ran 14 seasons in all, built on a handful of primary relationships that stretch credulity but never descend into self-parody.

Not unexpectedly, Dallas begins with a Romeo and Juliet tale that instantly exposes an old feud between two families and strips the civilized veneer from several major characters. Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), youngest of three sons of independent oilman Jock Ewing (Jim Davis), arrives at the Ewing clan's Southfork ranch just outside Dallas, Texas, with a new wife, Pam Barnes Ewing (Victoria Principal). Pam is the daughter of Digger Barnes (David Wayne), an old business rival of Jock's and one-time suitor of the Ewing matriarch, Eleanor (or "Miss Ellie", played by Barbara Bel Geddes). Pam's also the sister of a state senator, Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval), whose vendetta against the Ewings is played out in the legislature, imposing costly regulations on their business and holding committee investigations into questionable practices of company president J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman). Pam's status as the newest Ewing causes an uproar in the family (besides being a Barnes, she also dated the Ewings' genial but lonely foreman, Ray Krebbs, played by Steve Kanaly) and prompts Dallas' charming villain, J.R., to make many Iago-like attempts, over the first two seasons, to drive her from Bobby's arms. Pam has a different set of problems with the other, jealous Ewing women, including J.R.'s possibly barren and alcoholic wife, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), and teenage Lucy (Charlene Tilton), daughter of exiled Ewing son Gary (Ted Shackleford). With new and old resentments flying and everyone deeply suspicious of everyone else's motives (even the ailing Jock doesn't trust J.R.), there's plenty of drama to chew on. Still, storylines are often larger than the sum of these parts, with lots of kidnappings, marital affairs, plane crashes, and shootings ratcheting up suspense. Dallas is pure pleasure, a little guilty, perhaps, but not a sin. --Tom Keogh

DALLAS is one of the best dramas ever from the 80s, which is why it was number 1 in the USA and UK TV ratings during its first seven seasons, and had airings in over 130 countries. DALLAS is exciting and has ingenious plots and storylines and is better quality drama in my opinion, than shows such as Desperate Houswives, The O.C., EastEnders, etc.
This classic and timeless show is well written and has some fine actors and Larry Hagman is excellent in his portrayal as the dastardly J. R. Ewing, who is usually up to no good and has many secrets! Once you enter the home of the Southfork Ewings, you'll want to "visit" them in every episode on this DVD set!
The video of most episodes is sharp and of high quality. The DVD commentary of a couple of episodes is rather uninteresting and slow at times.
DALLAS has 14 seasons so I hope Warner Home Video speed up the releases with at least two or three seasons a year to DVD. Seasons 3, 6 and 7 (DALLAS fans refer to them as seasons 2, 5 and 6) are indeed the BEST seasons of the entire series with such gripping, clever and solid storylines. The first two seasons in this DVD box set are very good and well worth watching with classic and entertaining episodes.

Ahhh, back to 1978! Loved it. Love the slim line packaging, cant work out why some folk can't grasp the fact they are on double sided discs.

As others have noted, there is the occasional wobble in sound and picture quality, but it is thirty years old (yikes!) and it doesnt detract from the experience.

Also, price is OK, shipping is fast. 5 stars from me.

Format: DVD
What a blessing! This DVD transported me to the golden age of the late 70s and the 80s, less complicated times filled with happy memories. Dallas made a huge contribution to popular entertainment in this era before mobile phones and other irritating gadgets. Talking of phones, JR always answered it with a curt "Yello" and hung up without saying goodbye.

This set opens with newly-wed Bobby and Pam on their way to Southfork Ranch, blisfully happy with only the wise Pamela expressing concern over the fact that she's the daughter of Digger Barnes, great enemy and rival of patriarch Jock Ewing. And it gets better and better with exquisitely complex intrigues! The Ewing family, who became family to millions way back then, never disappoints.

For those who watched the complete series, it is interesting to see the character development from the very beginning. For example, Ray Krebbs is a highly unprincipled scoundrel who later became decent and honest. Sue Ellen (Swellen to JR), still a vapid beauty queen here, evolved into a graceful, mature womanhood after a long struggle with demon drink. In between, many times when discovering JR's infedilities, she slapped his face, her lower lip quivered and she said "bestid!"

The devious little Lucy, very much the delinquent, eventually chilled and unfortunately disappeared too soon from the series. Pam is the one who impresses most with her can-do attitude and sound moral principles. Others never changed much: the long-suffering Miss Ellie is good and remained so to the end, whilst the charmingly evil JR never gave up his tricks. He in fact got worse. Others include Cliff Barnes, Gary and Valene Ewing, Jenna Wade, Kristin Shepard and Donna Culver.

I have been a fan of Dallas since the early 90's and when I heard that this boxset was coming out I was delighted.It took me a long time to get it but when I did I sat right down and watched hours of it the day it arrived.There werte a few problems however with sound here and there and the over use of dubbing but apart from all that the boxset is fantastic.I advise any Dallas fans to get this.You won't be sorry.

Oh boy Dallas!!! How fantastic to see again this classic TV Drama. As camp as it is funny and as far feached as it is real. Escapism at its very best. You can't help but become totally absurbed by every character. You feel for Sue Ellen, you get a secret kick out of JR's awful underhand ways and as for Lucy Ewing!!! Can't wait for the next DVD collection.

After the new revived Dallas, which my teenage son enjoyed, I decided to buy the original one for him to get him to understand the history of the characters. He is really enjoying it and I will be reminiscing myself when I get chance.

Format: DVD
Way back in 1978, on the 5th September precisely, five months after airing in the USA, BBC1 aired the first episode of a short miniseries entitled Dallas. Set amont the Ewing and Barnes families, soon viewers became familiar with the lives and loves of Pamela Barnes Ewing (Victoria Principal), JR Ewing (Larry Hagman), Jock Ewing (Jim Davis), Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), Lucy Ewing (Charlene Tilton), Miss Ellie Ewing (Barbara Bel Geddes) and Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray). Of course the series would not have been complete without "outsider" Ray Krebbs (Steve Kanaly) and Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval).
Until April 1979 BBC1 screened the miniseries and the first regular series following it. All 29 episodes of this run feature on this discset. The show went onto enjoy huge ratings, and the following season 1979/80 provided fans with one of soaps biggest cliffahngers ever "Who Shot JR?". The success of the soap led ITV Thames Television to poach the series from the BBC in 1985. The BBC responded by holding off their unscreened episodes indefinitely. Eventually normal service resumed when other ITV companies who didn't want Dallas anyway persuaded Thames to play ball.
This set is the only time we see winter in Dallas and snow can be seen in the short miniseries.
The late Barbara Bel Geddes shines in her role and created an extremely caring affectionate mother to the Ewing clan who was always there no matter what problems the family were in. Bel Geddes is surrounded by equally talented performers throughout the series' run.
We also meet two caharcters played by Joan Van Ark and Ted Shackleford who go onto successin a spin off series Knots Landing.
If you like your 1980s US soap, Dallas is a MUST SEE for you.

Enjoy!
