Default Dallas - The Complete Eleventh Season DVD Review

JR may be down, but he’s never out. After Ewing Oil collapsed in disgrace at the end of season 10, some folks might suspect Season 11 to feature a JR Ewing who has learned his lesson. But not Dallas fans - they know the only lesson JR ever learned was to do onto others before they do onto you. So hang on to your Stetsons for 30 irresistible episodes of cheating, lying, and tomcattin’ as JR claws his way back to the top. More drama: Bobby loses Pam but finds new romance, thus making the last 10 years a waste of our time again. Cliff meets a broken down wildcatter with dreams of gusher glory. Sue Ellen discovers that revenge is sweet, while two murder cases grab headlines. And a new crop of drop dead gorgeous folks with big schemes and even bigger hair make life even more interesting for JR.

With Pam gone thanks to Victoria Principal having set sail, Dallas becomes the “JR and Bobby Show” almost exclusively...Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman run the show, period. At this point, the show becomes a stereotypical soapish program, and starts to become painful to watch. The series does still have its moments, yes. But the Dallas *I* like is long gone by this point.

The show was still good during this period. This unfortunalty marks the last season that Steve Kanaly was on the show.

I just finished watching the Season 11 episodes. This season was not too bad, IMHO. Of course, the cast changes and cast members leaving and coming back (e.g., Miss Ellie, Bobby) while others simply leave altogether makes things difficult to follow.

When is Season 12 coming out? Has there been an announcement yet?
