Studio: Warner Bros.

TV- Series
Release Date:

Special Features:

Seasons of Change

Review:

Season 9 is the latest set in Warner Bros. releases of Dallas on DVD. The drama continues, with old faces and new alike. While Season 9 wasn't the show's finest hour, it still had its share of entertaining episodes and memorable moments. The show wasn't quite over yet, and Season 9 proves this over the course of several episodes. ***

The DVD set contains all of the Season 9 episodes. Episodes included are as follows: Return to Camelot Part 1, Return to Camelot Part 2, Pari Per Sue, Once and Future King, Enigma, Trompe L'Oeil, Territorial Imperative, The Second Time Around, Bells Are Ringing, Who's Who At The Oil Baron's Ball, Proof Positive, SOmething Old Something New, Bar-B-Cued, The Fire Next Time, So Shall Ye Reap, Tick Tock, Night Visitor, Cat And Mouse, High Noon For Calhoun, Olio, A Death In The Family, Revenge of the Nerd, The Ten Percent Solution, Some Good Some Bad, War And Peace, Ruthless People, The Dark At the End of the Tunnel, Two-Fifty, and Fall in the House of Ewing. The way the set is put together is no different than the recent releases. ***

One minor complaint I have to make specifically about the 9th season set - The back of the box contains some spoilers to one of the show's classic, key events. I won't go into further details, as I don't want to spoil the experience for first-time viewers. Shame on Warner for this. ***

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 9 fares equally well. ---

Special Features:

We only get a single featurette in the series, which is entitled Seasons of Change. However, this featurette heavily examines the aforementioned famous "spoiler" that I mentioned in a paragraph above, so I can't get too into it here. But if you're a fan of the show, who already knows what is coming and have experienced this classic scene before, you'll want to check out this featurette. It's fairly brief, but worthwhile viewing for Dallas fans.--

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.
