Product Description

This hugely popular prime-time soap opera follows the exploits of the Carringtons and Colbys, both "oilrich" family dynasties in Denver, CO, as they accrue and manipulate power and wealth.

Amazon.com

"That's a lie," an outraged Blake Carrington, on trial for murder, insists to his attorney, "She's lying." "She" is Blake's despised ex-wife, who has resurfaced in court to testify against him. And Blake, you'd better get used to it, because as Dynasty's second season unfolds, perjury will be the least of her offenses. Joan Collins joined the cast as the vengeful, scheming and manipulative Alexis Carrington and immediately put Dynasty on the map as a formidable ratings rival to Dallas. It doesn't take long for Alexis to literally make herself right at home. She moves back into her former art studio on the Carrington estate and insinuates herself in the tumultuous lives of her ruthless ex-husband ("'Don't' and 'Can't' are not in my vocabulary," he proclaims), his "ever so noble" new wife, Krystle (Linda Evans), her sexually confused son, Steven (Al Corley), and her spoiled, resentful daughter, Fallon (Pamela Sue Martin).

Events transpire in this instantly addictive sophomore season at a fast and furious pace beginning with Alexis's divisive return and the verdict in Blake's trial, and proceeding with familial estrangement; calamitous accidents; shocking revelations; pregnancies; sexual shenanigans; infidelity; temporary blindness; a suicide attempt; and a kidnapping. And did we mention the introduction of luscious Heather Locklear as golddigger Sammy Jo, who marries Steven, or Alexis and Krystle's first "cat fight," a pillow-walloping, vase-throwing, furniture-crashing smackdown? The writers oblige their game cast with delicious, menacing exit lines along the manner of "I won't rest until I pay you back." Another collateral pleasure is Brian Dennehy, devouring the scenery as the prosecutor out to get Blake (the line forms behind Alexis). For all its scandalous goings-on, Dynasty seems almost quaint today (in the courtroom, the word, "homosexual" triggers a maelstrom of shocked murmuring). A blast from the "Greed Is Good" decade, Dynasty has lost little of its luster. It's wicked fun. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Stupid FOX, Smart Paramount? June 11, 2007
By William
Format:DVD
It is well known that Fox Studio did not even know its own product. Season 1 of Dynasty was bad, which is why Joan Collins was introduced in Season 2 to lift the ratings. She did so amazingly. So what did Fox do? After disappointing Season 1 DVD sales they decided to CANCEL future Dynasty releases without doing their research or talking to fans. They have lost alot of money by being stupid and not knowing what their fans want. Perhaps they should have released Season 1 and 2 together from the start in 2005. This is what Paramount, who have taken over the rights, are doing. They are re-releasing Season 1 in a boxset with Season 2. Or, you can just buy the great Season 2 on its own.

While it is very good news to FINALLY see Season 2 coming on DVD, it is bad news to see stupid film companies still taking their time releasing old TV shows on DVD when the format has been around for 10 years now. It's just not good business sense. Consumers want to see quicker releases for seasons. We don't want once a year like the Warner idiots have done with DALLAS. Hello!

I'll be first in line for Season 2 of Dynasty. I would like Paramount to prove me wrong about the film companies by releasing subsequent episodes of Dynasty on DVD as quickly as possible. Us fans deserve as much after the embarrassing three year wait for Seaon 2.

Bring on the catfights with Alexis, Krystle and Sammy Jo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Prime Time Soap Opera Ever! May 22, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally the complete second season of "Dynasty" comes to DVD in August. After disappointing sales of the first season Fox gave the rights up to the DVD releases (thankfully) and Paramount now holds these rights. Originally airing from 1981-1982 the second season of "Dynasty" starts off with an electrifying story in which Alexis Carrington testifies at her ex husbands trial for the murder of their homosexuals son's lover Ted Dinard. This starts the stories in full motion as Alexis becomes the antagonist of nearly every character in the show. The Alexis character was also modeled after Iris Carrington from daytime's "Another World" who too was a rich female troublemaker. Joan Collins does a perfect performance as Alexis and it's hard to distinguish if Joan becomes Alexis or if Alexis becomes Joan but whatever the rate Joan Collins makes this season and makes this show what it become that year. The series quickly jumped into the top 20 Nielsen Ratings and would eventually go on to be number 1 in America in 1985. The stories are told at a great speed with character depth as we see Steven, the gay son, trying to deal with who he is, even going so far as marrying a girl from the wrong side of the tracks named Sammy Joe ,played beautifully by a pre-"Melrose Place" Heather Locklear. You will love the verbal spats between Sammy Jo and Alexis. Also the art direction is beautiful with gorgeous sets and who can ever forget the costumes. The season has 22 episodes and is a must for any true fan of prime time television. This was TV's first guilty pleasure. And lastly this is the season where Krystle and Alexis have their first cat fight in Alexis' studio. Way to go girls. Without a doubt the greatest primetime season ever of any soap opera. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, finally, finally!!! August 22, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
YES!!

After a long and torturous gap of years of waiting -- during which time lucky "Dallas" fans were able to get 7 seasons of their favourite show issued to DVD -- finally we "Dynasty" fans have something to cheer about too. At last the red tape transferring legal rights has been taken care of and a new company that seems to appreciate the value of this show has taken over the DVD issuing. Let's hope this means the remaining seasons will now continue to come out in a timely fashion.

After waiting SO long, at long last the incomparable Joan Collins once again graces my TV screen with her ravishing presence. I felt so let down when she did not even appear at all in the Season 1 set I bought. Without her, "Dynasty" seemed bland and somehow lacking its usual spark. Now finally I get to see the "Dynasty" I had been longing to see again.

The packaging for this set is slightly different from the Season 1 set that I bought years ago. Instead of individual slipcases for each pair of discs, I was amazed to find all 6 discs fitted inside a single case only slightly thicker than a standard 1-disc case. Usually this means some kind of system in which the discs are layered on top of each other and we must risk damaging them every time we pop one out to get at the one below. But not so here. This is a brand new case design I have never seen before, and each disc is completely independent of the other discs and quite safe. I find this quite a good and effective design, and I think it will save a lot of space on my overcrowded and ever-growing DVD shelf.

Just a couple of minor quibbles. First, as others have mentioned, the traditional "last time on Dynasty" intros have been chopped from all of the episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynasty The 2nd Season June 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At long last this long awaited 2nd season of "Dynasty" is out on DVD!
I agree that Joan Collins debut as superbitch Alexis really give the series a much needed boost.
I did also enjoy the first series thanks to John Forsythe,Linda Evans and particularly Pamela Sue Martin as the one and only orginal Fallon.
In fairness to Emma Samms who took over the role later,Fallon Mark2 spent her two seasons on "The Colbys" in tears but when Fallon returned to "Dynasty" later,the character was like her old strong self.
I also really liked Pamela Bellwood as the tragic Claudia,who lost her husband Matthew and daughter Lindsay,after season one(although Matthew did make a dramatic comeback at the end of season 7)she survived so much,only to die in the "La Mirage" fire at the end of season6.
It was a shame that Al Corley left in season2(due to being unhappy at Steven suddenly getting a glamorous young wife)he was so good in that part,Jack Coleman too over the role,although good too,Al Corley was the better Steven.
The new villian in season 2 was Nick(James Farentino)the Doctor with a grudge against Blake,thankfully Alexis really became the central villian and Nick disappeared after the 2nd season.
I was lucky enough to see the Joan Collins theatre show in England last year,she looked great and was so funny,she doesn't take herself too seriously and appreciates her fans,confirmed to me,when a requested signed picture was duly sent.
So like a lot of fans I agree that Dynasty really gets going when Alexis crosses the courtroom at Blake's trail and takes her hat off,enter Alexis!
