This show just should never have been. Introduced with much ballyhoo in the fall of 1985, The Colbys had all the strengths of it's parent show, Dynasty. Good production values, great actors in the lead roles, a dynamite theme song........it was just too much like it's parent show for anyone to care. The characters are almost identical to those on Dynasty. Have Blake married to Alexis and pining after Krystle on Dynasty, and you've pretty much got the show in a nutshell. The great Barbara Stanwyck was wasted in this show, no wonder she bailed after the first season. The infamous series finale need not be discussed here except to say it was probably a logical conclusion for this illogical series. The producers would have better utilized their talents in improving the steadily declining Dynasty at this point. That series was all downhill from the Moldavian wedding massacre episode. And no, I didn't like season 9 of that show, which many people see as a huge improvement over what went before, including several cast members from the moribund The Colbys.
