Anyway once you get used to this the season is actually very good - great to have Bobby back especially, the Wes Parmalee/Is he really Jock? storyline is intriguing and well done, and some great individual episodes such as JR's duel with mercenary J D Calhoun and Bobby and Pam's wedding day when Ray accidentally reveals Jenna is having Bobby's baby just before they are about to tie the knot!
Best of all is the final episode when JR stands outside his former office, seemingly defeated and Ewing Oil out of business, siezes the portrait of Jock that Jeremy Wendell was about to take down, holds it up to his son John Ross and says defiantly " This is Ewing Oil" before walking out of the Ewing building for the last time with his son. The writers of Dallas do a great job making you root for JR in this season, yes he risks starting WWIII in the Middle East, but his enemies are so unlikable - the slimy Wendell or clownish Cliff Barnes and even the rest of the Ewing family who abandon him by the end - you can't help being on his side.
Another thing with season 10 is that it follows the infamous dream season 9 - you do have to make a bit of an effort to remember what happened at the end of season 8 and pick up where that left off and try and forget season 9 ever happened but this doesn't overshadow the season like I was afraid it would.
All things considered I'd recommend this series - perhaps the last of the great Dallas Seasons. Also I think looking back on it now a smirking, scheming Oil Man from Texas trying to increase the price of oil by bombing the Middle East isn't so farfetched!
I think the problem with season 10 is that the family starts to break up and characters start to behave in ways that you knew they wouldn't. Also, no one's at Southfolk, its deserted......Donna's up in Washington; Ray's got his new mini-Southfolk; Sue Ellen's wheeling-and-dealing; even Clayton moves out for awhile. In fact, I think this is the greatest mistake ever made on Dallas - moving the action away from the family and Southfolk meant that they seemed less like a family and more like a collection of couples and groups doing their own thing.
I read somewhere that Larry Hagman was uphappy that too much action in season 9 was centered on other characters and that too many major storylines didn't involve him at all. Consequently, when season 10 saw the return of original producer Leonard Katzman, seemingly its back to the 'JR show'. Its almost as if everyone who benefited from a ramped-up role in season 9 are punished. This results in Pam having nothing too do all season 10 (not one significant storyline involves her - no wonder Victoria Principle left at season end) and Donna is packed off to Washington (which was a huge mistake as she was the only moral compass and 'voice of reason' the show had).Read more ›
Of the 29 episodes in this box set only 3 seem to have been given the remastered treatment from NTSC original masters to PAL. The other 26 episodes look like they did when they were screened on the BBC over twenty years ago: blurred images, poor colour contrast and motion judder. I've seen this season look better on recent satelite re-runs which beggers the question why would anyone want to buy this poor quality DVD set when they can view a better quality version on satelite television. Shame on Warner for this.
Sorry to see Victoria Principal leave at the end of this season though. She was beautiful.
