unfair treatment of LeAnn Hunley

Vivacious LeAnn Hunley isn't credited as part of the 'show opener', her credit is hidden way at the back, even after having appeared for most of this season, and in a potentially important role. With this episode, Cassie Yates (yawn!) appears out of nowhere, and gets full honors. So did Terri Garber (even bigger yawn!) from Day One. Now, I don't care even a little bit about these other two, LeAnn's the far, far more valuable asset to the show. A jewel should be properly show-cased.

Little Jessica Player can do cute. But she cannot even pretend to be asleep. It was such a horrendous performance, that strained little face, I'm almost through cheering for her! Just kidding! Just kidding! :) but come on...

This is not the episode of choice for Heather Locklear fans. All Heather Locklear fans, there is very, very little of our heroine. She answers a crank call. I put up the Quote, and that's about it.

For the most part, this is a morose episode, concerning finding a donor heart for little Krystina, by way of a friend of Dex whose little daughter is brain-dead after a car accident... COME ON, it's DYNASTY... People tuned in for the bling. I bought the DVDs for the glam. This episode, almost nothing sweet, mostly just bitter dregs. Okay, I understand, it's necessary story-line, but still, hey, I don't care for this episode, which is why there are so few Quotes (July 2017). The other episodes of this season waited eons for me to brighten them up a bit here, but for this one, aw man... it ain't no fun, and to quote Krystina, "I don't like it here."
