    BURBANK, CA (September 26, 2012) – One of the longest running series in television history has struck it rich again with Dallas, the new series inspired by the landmark drama. Catch up with all the scandal, lies and betrayal as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group releases Dallas: The Complete First Season on DVD January 8 to coincide with the start of its second season on TNT. This three-disc DVD collector’s set features all 10 episodes from the first season and over 2 hours of bonus features, including 6 featurettes, a pilot commentary and deleted scenes. The DVD goes for less than a barrel of oil, and is priced to own at $39.98 SRP.

    The drama of the Ewing family dynasty continues with a whole new generation, as J.R.’s (Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen’s (Linda Gray) son, John Ross (Josh Henderson), locks horns with Bobby’s (Patrick Duffy) adopted son, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), proving that in Texas, oil is still thicker than blood. At stake is the coveted Southfork family estate sitting on a billion barrels of oil. With J.R.’s cunning guidance, John Ross is determined to drill on it, while Christopher, backed by Bobby, searches for alternative energy and a way to protect this family legacy from being stolen out from under them. It’s a battle without limits, whether it means stealing another man’s money, loyalty, girlfriend or wife … leaving just one question: Whose side are you on?

    The first season of Dallas stars Josh Henderson (Desperate Housewives), Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives), Jordana Brewster (The Fast and Furious films), Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars), Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives), Callard Harris (Sons of Anarchy), with Patrick Duffy (Dallas [original series]) and Linda Gray (Dallas [original series]) and Larry Hagman (Dallas [original series]) as J.R. Ewing. Executive produced by Cynthia Cidre (The Mambo Kings, Cane) and Michael M. Robin (Rizzoli & Isles, The Closer, Nip/Tuck), the series was created by David Jacobs and is produced by Warner Horizon Television.

    In its first season, Dallas averaged 4.5 million viewers each week. The series premiere was 2012’s second most-watched scripted series premiere on basic cable.

    I already paid for the iTunes downloads, which were HD, so the absence of a Blu-ray is a letdown.

    R.I.P. Larry :(
    He came to see a local production of "South Pacific" that I was in a few years ago. He posed with our Nellie in front of a photo of his mom in the same role:

    I'm so sad tonight. I was hoping we would have him for a few more years.

    I wonder how the show is going to deal with it and whether audiences will accept the idea of Dallas after J.R. Ewing. But it is indeed a sad day.

    Many great memories of Friday nights back in the 1980s.

    Dallas without Larry for me will not be possible. Here are thoughts on Larry's passing.

    The show is surprisingly good but if it would have been presented without any original cast members, would it have been as tantalizing? I think not. JR was the one who made the show originally and in the new version. You always tuned in to see what JR was going to do and if justice would be served, even in the later seasons of the original show right up to the last episode which ended on a cliffhanger note. There's no way they can bring in anyone else in to do the part and Bobby just has too much "nice guy" about him to go head-to-head with Cliff.
