    Has anyone ever noticed this?

    By AntonioPadilla, Jun 24, 2015

    So I am curious to know if anyone ever noticed that there was one particular woman, an extra, that was in almost every episode, from the time Fallon took over La Mirage. What's funny is that she wore the same orange dress either walking into or walking out of La Mirage.

    Delicious Over the Top 80s Camp At It's Best

    By andybluebear, Feb 08, 2015

    This show was many things. It was silly, campy, dramatic, humorous, ridiculous, poignant at times. But, it was usually entertaining, and usually fun, especially during seasons 2 to 5. Season 6 was hit or miss, seasons 7 and 8 were horrible, season 9 was ok, but not enough to save the show.



    Still, we'll always have the glitz, the glamor, the bitchy one-liners, the shoulder pads, the (non-burnt) champagne, the caviar (petrossian beluga, not ossetrovan, of course), the catfights, the boardroom battles, the bed hopping, the fabulous Carrington mansion and other opulent set pieces. Honestly, no other show captured this aspect of the 80s better than Dynasty did.moreless

    my purchase of Dynasty DVDS

    By RyanScott03, May 25, 2013

    I loved Dynasty and I think I will forever adore it. It was magnificent and extravagant at its best. People may condemn it on the grounds that the certain circumstances were unbelievable and acting was great, I think this is the only show that has its uniqueness. No Doubt it was the shrine of the 80's decade. I decided to purchase my all-time favorite show which is Dynasty from DVDBooth. com. At first, I thought this was not a legit website because I didn't receive a confirmation email upon placing the order and forwarding my payment. I tried to email them from their website and asked for the tracking number of my DVDs. They replied within an hour which is good in terms of customer service. They forwarded all the required information I'm asking for. After 10 business days, my product hasn't arrived yet so I made a follow up. They explained to me that the competence of the mail service is out of their control and asked me to wait for the next few days. I received the package the following day. When I check the package, it was outstanding because all the disc was produced with great quality! I feel appreciative for the support given by this company. And with that kind of product and service, I definitely place my second order next month!moreless

    I love this show - it is perfect escapism.

    By goldtop2007, Jul 25, 2008

    This is a high end soap that, along with "Dallas" defined the atmosphere of the oil crazed 80's. Sumptuous surroundings were created, crazy writing, it's all part of the fun. Here, everybody sleeps with everybody else, betray each other looking damn fabulous while they do it. This is, of course, a black and white world, where you're either good or bad. There's no need for deep contemplation here, just a nice soft couch and ice cream or your favorite snack.



    My favorite character on this show is Alexis, who only makes her appearance at the beginning of season two. The evil people on the show always seem to have the best wit and charm, so sit back and enjoy the naughtiness! Sure, Dallas may have had the better writing, but Dynasty wins on attitude

    Oh! the drama... the big hair... the shoulder pads...

    By RioMom, Jul 16, 2008

    I remember watching this periodically from its debut in 1981 through 1985. Just for fun I ordered the first season from Netflix last week. Now I know why I stopped watching Dynasty. Oh my goodness is it ever trite, overly dramatic and boring! I ended up fast-forwarding through most of the episodes. I'm sure at the time it was worth watching, but not now, unless you're a fan of melodramas! The storylines aren't anything close to realistic. Even for fantasy they're out there! I don't remember Blake Carrington being so mean or Krystal being such a doormat. Steven Carrington always looked like he was about to burst into tears. Fallon was unbelievably rude, childish and downright evil. The chauffeur was not at all attractive or appealing in any way, yet somehow this dud was able to bed Fallon (multiple times). Claudia is a complete waste of skin. She can't seem to do anything by herself. I understand she had a nervous breakdown and all, but come on! Suck it up and move on with your life. Well, anyway, I don't recommend watching this unless there's absolutely NOTHING ELSE ON!moreless

    Funny show!

    By Rozzzz, Mar 07, 2007

    It is not as good as L.A. Law, The Practice, Boston Legal or L Word.. But it is a classic!

    I think I was 6 when I started watching this classic, and I fell for it straight away! I adored beautiful Krystle (played by Linda Evans) and gorgeous Fallon (played by Pamela Sue Martin). And I loved to hate Alexis (played by Joan Collins).

    The last years of the show wasn't great, but still there were some highlights: espacially the arrival of the wonderful Sable Colby (played by Stephanie Beacham).

    The reunion-movie was actally pretty good, despite the fact that the original "Fallon" and "Adam" weren't in it...moreless

    A very fine television soap-one of its kind.

    By c_etude, Jan 08, 2007

    I would say DYNASTY was one of the finest television soaps ever put out. It had it's very slow moments, probably the most boring was that royal wedding; this was one of the weaknesses. Also, the constant changing of actors, was inconsistent, I thought. Steve Carrington was played by two different actors, and so was Fallon. SO was Alexis's daughter. It's very hard to adjust to the new face once you have gotten used to one face. Later in the show it picks up momentum again. I would say the MAIN star of the show was Alexis (Joan Collins). Forever causing trouble, she kept it interesting. Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) basically had to dodge her attacks. Crystal and Alexis hate each other, mainly because Alexis still loved Blake and can't have him, so she's out to destroy him. The show really went out with a BANG in the end with just about everybody dying off (or nearly, well implied)..first Crystal left--with a brain operation that rendered her totally brain dead; Steven (Jack Coleman) skipped town to discover himself (Steven was wishy-washy always) then, in the end, during the finale, everybody else gets it--Fallon, and Blake's and Crystal's daughter Christine, gets trapped in a mine with no way out. Alexis crashes down stairs when there was a brawl. Blake gets shot. Cool ending! But how sad to see it go!moreless

    A classic 80's soap

    By nikkie_fikkie, Aug 18, 2006

    Dynasty will always remind me of the 80s. I was a huge Dynasty fan am still am, I think the show captured the 80s perfectly, with its over the top clothes, huge hair, and amazing waste of wealth. I remember watching and wishing so hard that I was a Carrington or that I was married to Alexis, just so that I could spend money like they did. The thing I most fondly remember about the show will always be Joan Collins, I think that she was amazing as Alexis and she captured the corprate B**ch like no one else will ever be able to. I was so excited when saeson one came out, I rushed right out and got it. Now if we can just get season 2.moreless
