An entertaining spin off of Dynasty.
7 July 2001 | by (Milwaukee,WI) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has watched the Colby's knows it was a spin off of Dynasty. The first episodes opening screen even says "Dynasty II", and it included many references to Dynasty. Although the show only ran from 1985-1987 it was a very entertaining show made even more so by its all star cast. Its intelligent soap opera story line keep you coming back time after time.
