One of the best T.V series ever
It had great actors and beautiful settings. Power, wealth, and suspense, this show had it all. Larry Hagman was great as the evil J.R Ewing, you just really love hating him. Patrick Duffy known as Bobby Ewing played as J.R younger brother, he was a nice guy compared to J.R in the shows. Victoria Principal was terrific as Pam Barns Ewing known as Bobby Ewing wife, she was a good character that stood her ground. Jim Davis known as Jock Ewing J.R and Bobby's dad was a eager and strong hearted person, it was sad that he passed away before the 4th season. Dallas Kept you in suspense through the whole especially when J.R got shot after the 3rd season. The Ewing family always kept people in the community about what went on at Southport Ranch.

Trivia

Up until 2004, the five-episode first season was referred to as 'The Mini-Series' and the first full season (1978-79) through to the final season (1990-91) were called Seasons 1-13 respectively. This was recognized by and consistent with all official Dallas related merchandise of the time. However, when Warner Bros. released the first two seasons on DVD in 2004, they inexplicably named the Mini-Series 'Season 1' and what was originally Season 1 became 'Season 2'. This meant all seasons that followed all went up by one numeral in name, ending with the final 1990-91 season becoming Season 14.

Goofs

The size and layout of Southfork Ranch cannot possibly hold the number of bedrooms the series suggests it has. When the show first starts, four bedrooms would be needed (one for Miss Ellie and Jock, one for JR and Sue Ellen, one for Bobby and Pam, and one for Lucy). The following year, a nursery is added along with a guest room for John Ross's live-in nurse, totalling six. In later years, Sue Ellen has her own room for a while, and during episodes of the 1984-85 season, there would need to be at least eight bedrooms to accommodate the family and various guests. Additionally, many of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and walk-in dressing rooms, which cannot possibly match up with the exterior of the house.


Alternate Versions

Three episodes that aired as two-hour episodes "The Family Ewing" (Season 9), "Return to Camelot" (Season 10), and Conundrum (Season 14), are edited into two separate episodes for syndication.
