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)
Season 4 CBS (3.3 out of 5)
Season 8 CBS (3.0 out of 5)
JR Returns (2.7 out of 5)
Season 11 CBS (2.5 out of 5)
Season 9 CBS (2.4 out of 5)
Season 2 TNT (2.0 out of 5)
Season 1 TNT (1.8 out of 5)
Season 13 CBS (1.5 out of 5)
Season 12 CBS (1.3 out of 5)
Season 14 CBS (1.1 out of 5)
War of the Ewing’s (0.4 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
