    Judging by the DVD Count this is how how I would rank the Dallas seasons from best to worst. I have included movies and TNT Version.

    To complete this ranking
    5 - Perfection
    4 - Near Perfection
    3 - Solid Season
    2 - Pros and Cons
    1 - Bad TV
    0 - Pure Trash

    Season 3 CBS (5 out of 5)
    Season 6 CBS (4.9 out of 5)
    Season 2 CBS (4.6 out of 5)
    Season 1 CBS (4.5 out of 5)
    Season 7 CBS (4.1 out of 5)
    Season 10 CBS (3.8 out of 5)
    Season 5 CBS (3.6 out of 5)

    I think it's impossible to accurately assign number values, but I'll give a shot at ranking the Dallas episodes (not including fake Dallas aka TNT Dallas).

    Season 6
    Season 3
    Season 7 (would have placed 2nd if not for the distasteful Peter storyline)
    Season 5
    Season 4
    Season 2
    Season 1
    Season 8
    Season 10
    Season 12
    Season 13
    Season 9
    Season 11
    Season 14

    Regarding the Peter storyline, the first time JR told Sue Ellen he thought Peter had a crush on her, Sue Ellen replied: "JR you have a sick mind! He's just a child!"

    Yet they went ahead with the storyline away. Unreal.

    For what it's worth, here's my estimation:

    Season 3
    Season 4
    Season 5
    Season 6
    Season 10
    Season 2
    Season 1
    Season 7
    Season 8
    JR Returns
    Season 11
    Season 9
    Season 12
    War Of The Ewings
    Season 13
    Season 14

    Not sure if you can accurately rate TNT Dallas alongside this, like most people think, original Dallas will always be the true version of the show.

    I don't know how you rate TNT Dallas alongside it either. TNT Dallas was synthetic; original Dallas was the real thing. If anyone has any doubts, try to picture Jock Ewing in TNT Dallas.

    Any "Dallas" where Jock Ewing doesn't fit in isn't Dallas. Without Jock Ewing there is no Ewing Oil, Southfork doesn't get saved from foreclosure, and JR, Bobby, and Ray don't exist.

    Mini Series - Season 9 (1978 - 87) = Perfection

    Everything else that aired after = Trash
