I've had no problems with playback of the penultimate episode on the DALLAS ninth season DVD. The picture quality is fine too.
I wonder if the info on DALLAS TV series webpage on wikipedia that Warner Home Video intends to release all fourteen seasons to DVD is true? There is a rumor that DALLAS TENTH SEASON may be released in Nov/Dec 2008. That's one of my fave seasons too!
Seems inevitible at this point for them to finish the remaining seasons. I just wish they'd increase it from 2 seasons per year to 3 season just to finish up sooner. A new season every 4 months would be real nice. Otherwise it'll be Christmas 2010 when we get season 14, and then presumably summer 2011 (if ever) for the 3 tv movies. :frowning:
I would love three seasons this year and three seasons next year on DVD! It says on DALLAS TV series webpage on wikipedia that Warner may "rush release" the final few "less popular" seasons to DVD. I do like those final three seasons and hope they sell well (I love the Southfork range war with the gun battles and explosions when George Kennedy joins the show!).
I've been watching the amazon.com sales ranks for the Season 9 DVD "dream season" and it's been selling well so far.
It would have been perfect if Warner Home Video had released the "Dallas: The Early Years" TV movie as an extra on the Season 9 DVD which was released on July 15, 2008 but I'm now hoping they'll put it on the Season 10 DVD (this tv movie was first broadcast around 1986 when Season 9 was being broadcast or had just finished - can't remember exactly). Or, Warner Home Video may do as they did with the two "Dukes of Hazzard" reunion movies and sell the three DALLAS TV-movies as a separate DVD release after the final DALLAS season is released.
I've been reading that DALLAS fans can meet Larry Hagman, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy in November 2008 at Southfork ranch where fans will gather for a big Southfork B-B-Q!
I've been going through the Dallas season releases. It's great to have them, but I do wish Warner had tried to remaster some of the episodes. The picture quality is no where near the CBS/Paramount stuff. It's a shame. Imagine watching Dallas with the same picture quality you see in the Hawaii Five-O or Mission Impossible sets!
The later seasons of Dallas were shot on film, but edited on video, so there's a good chance the picture quality is only going to get worse.
