David Marshall Grant,
Very well done, with lots of clips and comments from original cast members, who display genuine affection for each other. Larry Hagman keeps the whole thing rolling along, introducing new segments and clips, slipping in and out of his beloved "J.R." persona. Great use of the original Southfork property as a backdrop. Nice reminiscences among cast members, in addition to answering audience questions. A few good surprises, too, including practical jokes, Hagman's home movies and some bloopers caught on tape! Included throughout is a count-down of fans ten favorite cliff-hanger episodes, with next season's resolution following. A very satisfying look back at one of television's best nighttime soap operas! A must for any true "Dallas" fan.
