Fallon has such crazy eyes in that first clip. That whole thing is weird...Pamela Sue seems so subdued, especially compared to her true bitchgoddess early years as Fallon, while Heather Locklear plays the whole scene like she's drunk.

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.

You beat me to it, I was just going to say it was totally the water element, not unlike the mud wrestling catfight that came later. Of course both women were far too clothed for it to be that erotic. But also at the lily pond, Alexis was wearing one of her iconic black and white w/picture hat ensembles, so visually it's the video time capsule example.

Perhaps she had a Madonna line in the studio too, but Alexis calls Krystle "the empty-armed Madonna" at the lily pond.

But the studio fight is the one that'll make women cheer and shout "Go 'head Krystle!" because she just wore Alexis' tail out. "If you want a rematch, just whistle. If you can."

For some reason I thought the madonna line was at the studio. Did she bring up Krystal's miscarriage at the studio?

Was it the studio where Linda was so rough that Joan wrenched her back and never wanted to do any of those fights again?

Later on it became a self-parody and they should have stopped, like the one where they threw mud packs at each other or whatever.

The studio's when Krystle confronts her about causing her miscarriage (the gunshot when the horse dragged her) so I guess yes. But the "empty-armed Madonna" line is definitely at the lily pond.

My favorite Dynasty catfight, aside from the early Krystle/Alexis ones, was when Sammy Jo and Samms Fallon were fighting in the mud over Jeff, then they both said, "What are we doing? He's not worth it!" and began playfully throwing mud at each other and laughing.

Yeah, that was a cute little "We're moving into the '90s" moment. :P I thought Alexis and Sable's catfight was a little disappointing, too much arm wrestling. Loved Dominique and Alexis though.

Joan is such a wimp. :P

The studio fight is just...epic. The over-the-top, bombastic disco soundtrack added to the bigness of it all. They catfought a perfect circle around the whole room, and then there's Alexis's windmilling and Krystle smashing the painting of Blake.

Alexis's tongue was so acid during the lilypond fight, though. Every single "Mrs. Jennings" was loaded with venom.

Anyone else love Caress, Alexis' sister? I really wish she had stayed longer and had been expanded

I loved the Dominique vs Alexis catfight, especially the dog's reactions...lol

I liked Caress, I enjoyed her chemistry with Alexis. I loved when Alexis called her "Cassie."

Poor Dominique. I wish the show had done more with her. They just gave up after a short time. And her daughter, zzzzz......

Not enough can be said about how absolutely stunningly beautiful Diahann Carroll looked on this show.

Jackie was turrible. She actually sounded like a Jackson.

How does Alexis keep her dignity after a slap like that :lol:

The idea of a heretofore unknown, black sibling joining this elitist, upper crust, conservative family is so dramatically potent, and yet, Dynasty, and especially GL, they never went anywhere with the great stories this could have, should have told.
