Default Dallas - The Complete Final (Fourteenth) Season DVD Review

Here it is... the final season of TVís most popular primetime serial. Season 14 of Dallas puts a nice bow on the entire series, wraps up some long standing plotlines, and introduces some new twists and characters. However, the series was very much running out of steam. 14 seasons and over 350 episodes is a long time for any series and both the producers and the network realized this. Ratings were at an all time low (61st for the year) so itís a good thing the show was finally put out of its misery.

The plots this season are far from the best of the run, but are still entertaining. The season starts with J.R.ís desperate attempt to get out of the mental institution. Bobby and his new bride get involved in a kidnapping plot, involving guest star Susan Lucci (All My Children,) that reaches a grisly climax. Larry Hagman and former I Dream of Jeannie co-star Barbara Eden are reunited when Eden plays temptress Lee Ann De La Vega who attempts to take over Ewing Oil. J.R. finally does lose the business, and anyone who ever cared even a shred about him (a short list), leading up to the surreal series finale -- an unusual take on ďItís a Wonderful LifeĒ in which a being from beyond (played by Joel Grey) shows J.R. a world in which he never existed (along with returning Linda Gray and Mary Crosby). And everything doesnít turn out quite as one would expect it to.

I am almost finished watching Season 14 boxset. I only have the final episode to watch, the one in which JR sees how life would be for everyone else without his influence. Anyway, Season 14 is OK, nothing to write home about, but then again I don't think the final few seasons were anything to write home about. As I look back, IMHO, I think the turning point was after Pam was in that accident and then she disappeared. I don't think Dallas was the same after that. But I digress . . . . In the next to last episode of season 14, which I watched last night, the fact that Michelle got released from jail after murdering someone and got released that quick!!!!! Wow, that's amazing!!!!! I know JR has a lot of power and influence, but come on!!!!! How old would have Bobby supposed to have been in this season, I wonder? "Jorie" was how old? 18 years old? How old would Bobby have been compared to her.
