    Yeah, you really can’t judge the show, or any show really, on its first few episodes.

    My parents were huge Dallas fans back in the day. It shows how far TV dramas have come, as that show would be a lower tier drama nowadays, yet was considered one of the best back then.

    They had a first-class crew on Dallas and spent a ton of money on it. In that respect, it was the polar opposite of Three's Company, which was cheap and crappy by comparison. You can make a good argument that the film shows -- even film sitcoms like Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart -- looked a lot better than videotape shows like All in the Family and Three's Company.

    I had no idea the series was out of print, until someone mentioned it earlier in the thread. I have the first 4 seasons, which is probably enough (I do remember loving Cindy, as a kid, though, so I've always thought about getting season 5), but I'm kicking myself, because someone was selling the boxset on Facebook Marketplace for $10 or $20 not long ago.

    Dallas and Knots Landing, in their heyday, were well-plotted, well-produced serials. They were never prestige dramas or anything, but they were entertaining for what they were. And Larry Hagman was a very talented, versatile actor. He was nominated for an Emmy a couple of times, but never won, which is a bit of a shame.

    And I agree, those videotaped sitcoms of the 70s look awful now. At least the old filmed shows can be cleaned up and seen in HD. The blu-rays of I Love Lucy are pretty stunning in terms of how good a 70-year-old show can look. But the videotaped shows are stuck in relatively low-resolution.

    Say wha?! I remember seeing them around town for $10-20 per season and that was sealed.

    You wouldn't have to try too hard to convince anyone of that. They look like VHS dubs even at their best. lol

    But I can deal with that much better than I can deal with them cropping and blowing up old shows to fit to wide screen when they remaster a show for HD, though I've just accepted that this is how it will be from now on. :)

    I don't remember how much I paid at Walmart for the complete series, but I think it was in the $30/$35 range.
