"Dynasty Reunion: Catfights and Caviar" was a fun reunion with some members of the cast: Linda Evans, Joan Collins, Al Corley, Pamela Bellwood, Gordon Thompson, Catherine Oxenberg, Emma Samms, and finally, John Forsythe. "Dynasty" was a fun, over the top show, and the cast seemed to really enjoy their reminisces. They also seemed to have a genuine fondness for one another, which was nice to see.
A couple of things one wonders about, not the least of which is why ABC didn't air this show since Dynasty was an ABC staple for 11 years. The second thing is, why does Linda Evans look as she does? One would think these actors could afford the very best surgery, yet Evans and Al Corley, once a beautiful man, looked beyond dreadful. I wouldn't want to see Joan Collins when she wakes up in the morning, but boy, can she still pull it off - and she's a good deal older than 61-year-old Evans.
John Forsythe came on only at the end, which someone questioned - the man is 88 years old. God bless him, he seems in good health and in possession of his faculties - two things to be cherished. But I doubt he had the stamina to do an entire taping.
It's a pity and not understandable why John James refused to be on the show or have clips of him shown. There was a talk show some years ago on which Linda Evans and a couple of other Dynasty people appeared and James was involved then. Wonder what happened.
It was great to see the Moldavia Massacre, all the catfights, Krystle's double, and the clothes. I still remember a blue gown slit up the front that Linda Evans wore. She and a few other ladies in the '80s made being in your forties very fashionable. If I sound like I'm dishing her now - well, it's Dynasty, you know, and it brings out the Alexis in all of us.
