Trivia

The original plans for the second part of season 7 was that Blake would develop amnesia and fall in love with Alexis. However, this was changed because John Forsythe routinely vetoed any storyline involving adultery. See more »

Quotes

Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: In case you've forgotten Danny is my son.
Alexis: Yes, I know. Poor little thing. That's a cross he'll just have to bear. Excuse me.
Sammy Jo Dean Carrington: I can't really blame Steven for moving out on you and taking Danny. At least I know you won't be able to contaminate my child with your conniving and your lying and your dirty ways.
Alexis: [laughs] Dirt seems to be the big word in your vocabulary, Sammy Jo. You grew up on the road with racing cars and dirt. You modeled through all those dirty magazines. You're covered in it.

Great Tribute to the 80's
26 October 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I loved this show and I think I will love it forever. It was beauty and luxury at its best. People may criticise it on the grounds that the situations were unbelievable and acting was stiff, I think that was the only way the show could work and become what it undeniably became: unique. Dynasty was a shrine to the excesses of the 80's. Probably nobody was too natural back then, so the cast should be given credit for adopting a pace that suited the show and that was key to its success. Ratings might have sunk, but that is always bound to happen. However, almost 20 years later and the show always gives plenty to talk about, is synonym of luxury (even for people who did not follow the show or weren't even born then). That must be worth something. I am sure anyone you ask is likely to know who Alexis Carrington is. I truly wish these days there would be shows were you could see beautiful women (of all ages - even if they had tons of make-up ans stuff) an immaculate scenery and splendid props. Dynasty - in ts kind - was perfection and the best A Spelling has produced in my opinion. Pamela Sue Martin, Pamela Bellwood and Katherine leaving the cast was a big blow I think, but - personally - did not stop remaining hooked. Only no no was the UFO (let's ignore that).
