And yet they waited nearly a year after the release of the first set to release this new season...

That may be that a few episodes were shorter than others. This is very common in producing television series. Not every episode is going to be exactly the same length every time. Especially true with older shows because they were shot on film. A lot more expensive to do pick-up shoots, etc. Easier to insert an extra commercial or two. However, the syndicated prints of Dallas ran about 45 to 46 minutes in length, and as I said were in a completely different format.

Dang, you're right. I could have sworn it was out last April. C'mon , Warners. You can do better than that.

On the Theme song question, it was altered slightly all the time. The show started in 78 and the theme had a very disco feel to it. It even changes between the miniseries and the first full season, where the bass guitar is turned down in the mix. I guess eveyone remembers episode 3 in the miniseries where they are dancing in the disco to the Dallas theme. It wouldn't surprise me if the later (less popular) seasons of Dallas are never released. But one a year is too slow and we won't get many seasons in the current DVD format.

As long as everything to the end of Season 8 (or 9, depending on how we count the miniseries) gets released, then I'm happy.
