Let's enter in a rich world of schemers! Dynasty!

Denver Carrington. His worst enemy is his cruel ex-wife, Alexis Carrington,
who owns Colby Co Oil Empire. During their Union, they got 4 children, Adam
who has been kidnapped at birth, Fallon who had an amnesia and then saw UFO,
Steven, who had facial plastic surgery and then took it over,
and Amanda who has been forgotten when she left to Europe.
Later, Blake married Krystle Jennings twice.

YES!!! These are some of my favorite catfights! I like this one where Alexis calls Krystle a crazy cow! LMAO! :lol:

Dynasty : Alexis and Krystle ultimate catfight

Here's another one where they go at it at Alexis' studio because Krystle Carrington knows exactly what Alexis did to her when she lost her baby:

Ahhhhh 'Dynasty'...if not for Joan Collins it would have been a forgotten one season of early 80's dullness.

Thankfully, La Collins swooped in, overhauled the show and became a superstar!

I wouldn't say "dullness". The first season is very well written. Seasons 1, 2 and 9 were the best written.

I just saw eppy 1 of Season 3 on DVD. The eppy was a bit slow and dealt with Jeff and Fallon's baby being kidnapped plue Adam appearing. Gordon Thomson sure looked hot back then. :)

I LOVED Season 9 because of two words: Sable Colby. I thought she made a better nemesis for Alexis than Krystle, and it's a shame they didn't bring her onto Dynasty sooner.

^ ITA. Sable Colby was my favorite character. She carried "The Colbys," too.

Stephanie Beacham and that pipsqueak Maxwell Caulfield are SO made for soaps. They should be on Primetime. Or B&B!

I found Sable to be a more convincing character. Alexis was larger than life, over the top, a cartoon character. She claimed to love her children, yet she used them at every opportunity and could easily dismiss them -- which she did to all of them at one time or another. Sable, on the other hand, could be devious, but she had the same motivation as JR Ewing -- her children. JR was always interested in passing the Ewing family heritage to Jon Ross, and Sable was always protecting her children from outside forces. Even her battle with Alexis in the last season was fueled because Alexis exposed Miles and Monica as illegitimate. She was cool, smooth, and calculating. Stephanie Beacham beautiful, icy, and seductive. And she could act.

And Soapsuds, this is for you, my buddy:

Actually my fantasy involved Steven #1 and Adam #1, :wub:

I've just started to watch this show for the very first time. :) Hope it doesn't disappoint.

Its a great show. I thought it started to lose a bit of its appeal I think around season 3 or 4, but I enjoyed 5 and I thought it was pretty good until season 8 which was a disaster. Luckily it did improve in season 9

Early Sammy Jo was the best!

The studio catfight is the best, IMO. I have no idea why the lily pond one always upstages it.

I think it's the whole idea of the women fighting in the water which gets notice. The studio fight was very, very good. Made even better because of the horrible remark Alexis made to her right before the fight, the one about the "fallen madonna," I can't remember the rest. Joan Collins was so charismatic you almost forgot what a nasty person Alexis could be. It's too bad Krystal became so dull and narcotized. I did like that at the end of that, she punched Alexis. Even today there's often this idea that women only slap each other.
