'Dallas: The Complete First Season'
TNT scored a success with this revival - rather than remake - of the popular serial about the oil-rich Ewing family of the Texas ranch Southfork. One of the chief delights here was the return of the since-deceased Larry Hagman as ever-wily J.R. Ewing, and the freshman year of the update was smart in using him and fellow returnees Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray as pivotal players again.
New cast members include Jordana Brewster, Jesse Metcalfe, Brenda Strong, Josh Henderson and Julie Gonzalo. DVD extras: six "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary on pilot episode by executive producer and writer Cynthia Cidre and executive producer and director Michael M. Robin; deleted scenes. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)
