Not Dynasty But Still Good!
19 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the Colbys maybe because it had a stellar cast including Charlton Heston, Stephanie Beacham, Barbara Stanwyk, Maxwell Caulfield, Tracy Scoggins, Emma Samms in their cast. The writing if I remember was not as good as it's sister show, Dynasty, but it still had spunk. It was set in Los Angeles, California as opposed to Denver, Colorado. It had a similar theme like Dynasty and the Colbys were supposedly richer than the Carringtons. I can't forget Katharine Ross better known as the original Stepford Wife. This show introduced great actors and actresses like her to a new generation. It may not have been as good as Dynasty but it still had style, class, and cat fights if I remember maybe they were more subtle than Krystle and Alexis but they were worth watching on a weekly basis.
