Despite popular belief that Alexis Carrington was designed as a rip-off of JR Ewing of Dallas (1978), the character was originally conceived as being a low key passive-aggressive villainess. Joan Collins, who was a fan of Dallas (1978) and the JR Ewing character, suggested that the writers portray Alexis as an all-out female version of JR Ewing. Collins' suggestion was backed by ABC executives, who felt that "Dynasty" needed a JR-type character to go head-to-head with Dallas (1978). See more »
Where else can you find the bitchiest 50 year old, dressed in the most extravagant gowns of all time? Sounds like the perfect show to me! Yes, Dynasty was without a doubt that one show that basically encouraged fans to sit back, put up their feet and watch how these "rich bastards" are living! No other show, not even the ultra popular Dallas, could take fantasy to that level. The show made you feel as though you too could be a Carrington living in a mansion and drinking champange. The "storylines" or perhaps lack of, left plenty of room to emphasize what audiences really wanted to see: sex, power, vanity and the most expensive jewels in all the world! This is Dynasty and the 80s at its very best!
