I never watched Dallas during it`s run on tv. A friend recommended it on DVD so I thought I`d give it a try. Big mistake!!! Now I`m hooked. Have already ordered season 3 and am looking forward to it. Good writing and acting all around. The commentaries, though sparse, gave some neat insights into the show. It was really great to see how some of the people have aged(last disc,side B). I definitely recommend this DVD.
