This was the very last acting role for Rock Hudson' who played Daniel Reese from December 1984 to April 1985. (Hudson's last appearance as "himself" was with longtime pal Doris Day on the premiere episode of her series Doris Day's Best Friends (1985).) Hudson passed away of AIDS on October 2, 1985. Incredibly, so little was known about AIDS at the time of this series that it was thought to be transmissible by casual contact, and many feared for the health of Linda Evans because she had kissed Rock Hudson in a scene on the show. Even more incredibly, a minor panic broke out in Hollywood about kissing scenes in films and TV. The "National Enquirer" gossip tabloid carried a picture of Rock Hudson kissing Linda Evans', and carried a story which further fueled the rampant paranoia at the time. See more »
Amanda Bedford Carrington:
Well, whatever it is, maybe I can give him something you never could.
And what, pray, is that? Immaturity, post-adolescent passion? Take it from me Dex loves real women not pale imitations.

When it was in production, I only began to watch Dynasty in the middle of the second season, the night of the big pillow fight, and I was hooked. VCR's were only a week away at that time and there was nothing like this sort of availability. Anyway, I later viewed the first season on FX in the mid 90's (I think) and wasn't very impressed with it at first, but I was taping them and decided to go back and see the occasional episode. May I say the first season not only grew on me, but it was its very best. No outlandish plots, both rich and "getting-by" classes were depicted as actual human beings. No suspension of disbelief, this was a very credible drama, only to later become a very INcredible circus! I was very well addicted to this circus, and it was very amusing and there were a lot of great lines, etc., not to mention the actors and actresses. I didn't like it when we were pummeled by the cast revolving door, so to speak, and upon Pamela Sue Martin's departure, I didn't think I was going to watch it anymore, but I thought, "what the hay! I didn't have anything special to do on Wednesday nights, anyway, so.....".
Very happy to hear there will be interviews with my two favorite Dynasty-ites, Pamela Sue Martin and Al Corley.
Fallon and Steven aren't number 1 and number 2 favorites, more like 1-A and 1-B Can't wait to get this - the digital transfer ought to be a stunner - I'm sure my two-year-old videos from SoapNet are fading just a little. Did I mention I taped all of these in slow speed?
