Dynasty: 20 Years Ago, The Carringtons & Colbys Said Goodbye -- How Did It End?

In its heyday, Dynasty was one of the most popular shows on television and spawned hundreds of products and a short-lived spin-off (The Colbys). The nation loved to see rich people have lots of outrageous problems.

Dynasty revolves primarily around the wealthy Carrington family. As the series begins, oil baron Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) has fallen in love with secretary Krystle (Linda Evens) and the two marry. Blake's daughter Fallon (Pamela Sue Martin, later Emma Samms) resents her while his gay son Steven (Al Corley, later Jack Coleman) is sympathetic. The series really took off once Blake's infamous ex-wife, Alexis (Joan Collins), showed up.

Other ongoing characters are played by Gordon Thomson, John James, Michael Nader, Heather Locklear, Pamela Bellwood, Diahann Carroll, Catherine Oxenberg, Lee Bergere, Leann Hunley, Kathleen Beller, Geoffrey Scott, Christopher Cazenove, Terri Garber, Wayne Northrop, Al Corley, Ted McGinley, Michael Praed, Lloyd Bochner, Peter Mark Richman, and Paul Burke.
