"Dallas - Season 8"
Reviewer:
Taylor Carlson
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: TV Series
Release:
2/12/08
Special Features: Dallas Makeover - Travilla Style featurette
Review:

Season 8 is the latest set in Warner Bros. releases of Dallas on DVD. The drama continues, with old faces and new alike. While Season 8 wasn't the show's finest hour, it still had its share of entertaining episodes and memorable moments. The show wasn't over yet, and Season 8 proves this over the course of 30 episodes. ***

The 5-disc DVD set contains all 30 of the Season 8 episodes. Episodes included are as follows: Killer At Large, Battle Lines, If At First You Don't Succeed, Jamie, Family, Shadow Of A Doubt, Homecoming, Oil Baron's Ball III, Shadows, Charlie, Barbeque 5, Do You Take This Woman, Déjà vu, Odd Man Out, Lock Up In Laredo, Winds Of War, Bail Out, Legacy Of Hate, Sins Of The Fathers, The Brothers Ewing, Dead Ends, Trial And Error, Shattered Dreams, The Verdict, Sentences, Terms Of Estrangement, The Ewing Connection, Deeds And Misdeeds, Deliverance, and Swan Song. The way the set is put together is no different than the recent releases. ***

Dallas ran from 1978-1991 - far longer than a number of shows of its type. Even after all this time, the show feels fresh and interesting to watch - due in no small part to its intriguing plotlines and memorable cast of characters. ---

Image And Sound:

Again, this category stays true to the earlier box sets, and that's a good thing. Dallas survives the transition to the DVD format in fine form, with detailed images that don't show their age as much as other shows from the same era given DVD releases do. Sound fares equally well, not showing its age and coming across audible and without any issues. All of the DVD releases of Dallas have looked and sounded fantastic, and you'll be pleased to know Season 8 fares equally well. ---

Special Features:

The only extra included in the set is the “Dallas Makeover - Travilla Style” featurette, which is interview footage with Bill Travilla, the show's costume designer, and the new look he attempted to bring to the series in this season. Sadly, Warner Bros. still hasn't hunted down the cast and crew to film some commentaries. The Travilla footage is interesting, but you'll wish there were more featurettes.

Final Words:

I wish Warner has included more extras, but that's a small complaint in the long run. This is another terrific season of Dallas, and it's well worth adding to your collection if you're a fan.
