I admit to watching these campy shows depicting a lifestyle most will never experience in such a broad soap opera format was indeed a guilty pleasure. Blake as a compassionate yet strong man seemed to be so much different from the evil JR we had seen in Dallas. Of course at first I couldn’t get over thinking of him as Charlie and often though this was Charlie’s side life. Krystal seemed so perfect almost too perfect, but for me the show really popped when Alexis came on seen. Joan Collins was perfect in that role. We loved to hate her and yet at times felt compassion toward her.
However, I stopped watching when the soap side just got too far fetched and didn’t even watch the finale.
Despite this I think of the series fondly as it reminds me of a time where we could all be part of a fictional good life.
