Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Prime-time TV soap opera -- having become firmly entrenched in the '60s with such shows as Peyton Place -- reached its apogee in 1978 with the premiere of Dallas, including all the elements that fascinated viewers: wealth, power, familial intrigue, conspicuous consumption, and promiscuous sex. America immediately embraced the Ewings, a dynastic family of Texas oil tycoons headed by gruff patriarch Jock (Jim Davis) and his faithful wife, Ellie (Barbara Bel Geddes). Initially the series revolved around the competition between siblings J.R. (Larry Hagman) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and their respective wives, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and Pamela (Victoria Principal). Tempestuous baby sister Lucy (Charlene Tilton) and scheming brother-in-law Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval) spiced up the subplots, and various other characters did their level best to upset the Ewing apple cart. Dallas wasn't very subtle; everything was out in the open and dramatized with a heavy hand. In fairly short order, Hagman's J.R. became the man TV viewers most loved to hate, and his shooting at the end of Season 3 was the most-watched cliff-hanger episode in the medium's history up to that time. The series etched itself into the public consciousness, not only making for great water-cooler conversation in the nation's workplaces but even exerting an influence on fashion: In the late '70s, as a result of the show's popularity, wide-brimmed Stetsons and cowboy boots were sold all over the country. Dallas wasn't just another TV drama. It was a bona fide cultural phenomenon. This box set, which collects the first two seasons (1978-79 and 1979-80), will bring back fond memories for those who eagerly anticipated each episode way back when, and it will even delight those who caught up with the show much later via truncated syndication prints.
