'Dallas: The Complete Third and Final Season'
(Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, et al / DVD / NR / 2015 / Warner Bros)

Overview: The adventures continue on Dallas Season 3 as John Ross marries Pamela Barnes and massive conspiracy with the Mexica cartel may end up destroying the Ewings.

DVD Verdict: As it's been now for the prior two years, this next generation of the Ewing family - cousins John Ross Ewing and Christopher Ewing - have clashed (like their predecessors) over the family's oil business and vast fortune for over 30 years now! And so as much as this is well documented as being the final season of the rebranding, and as much as "JR" was great up until his untimely death in real life), there's still lots to love here in the third season.

For here in season 3, John Ross Ewing III (JR Ewing's son) marries Pamela Barnes (Cliff Barnes daughter), but what good can come of this act? Absolutely none, as we and they all know! Especially when John Ross is having an affair with Emma Ryland right under Pamela's nose! But to John Ross, sleeping with Emma is just good business but we can guarantee that his new wife won't see it that way. Elsewhere, Elena Ramos seeks revenge after learning that decades ago, JR stole her father's oil rich land and swapped it with a worthless piece of dirt. With old friend Nicolas Trevino, she plots with Cliff Barnes to take down the Ewings and make them pay, but will all of her devious plans get her what she really wants or will Nicolas take advantage of her trust!

When the Mexican cartel gets involved, everyone ends up in danger when Emma Ryland and Ann Ewing are kidnapped. Can Bobby get them back or will John Ross make a surprising alliance to save a life and win back Ewing Global. And As the third season concludes, things come to a head with Nicolas and the cartel, John Ross makes an unlikely alliance and one member of the Ewing family ends up dead!

Indeed, and telling it like it is, Linda Gray seems to have metamorphosed into an anorexic animatronic puppet, with the skin precariously stretched over her face bones. You feel she might shatter at any moment - but she is still strangely attractive and fascinating to watch. She can still pack a punch as Sue Ellen. Admittedly in season two she undergoes a complete mentality switch in no time flat, but, hey, it's Dallas!

Perhaps more importantly the two cousins are very good actors. Josh Henderson is great as John Ross. The make-up and hair department have let him down a little by overdoing the sleazy look - who'd buy a gallon of anything from this man? Jesse Metcalfe is the perfect counterfoil. He has a more difficult part to play as the goodie, since in drama is notoriously harder to make a goodie interesting.

The young women are only so-so. Elena is just a younger and less interesting skeleton than Sue Ellen and Pam just pouts most of the time. Neither of them can hold a candle to Victoria Principal in her prime, or to Linda Gray. However, Brenda Strong is excellent and has the best acting ability on the set, at least among the women. Yes, its sad that the show ended before anything could wrap up nicely, but that's what happens in TV Land to a show that just isn't cuttin' the mustard, so to speak. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of Deleted Scenes.

Own it on DVD & Digital HD January 13th!
