After releasing a full season for each of the first 2 seasons i find it sickening that the corporate company(Paramount) would do this now. I recently read a post where someone had mentioned the idea of buying used. That way they lose sales as they deserve to do for being so blatently greedy. That's what i had decided to do when manufacturers come out with split seasons.
You can find them used, a little while after the are released from a reputable seller on Amazon or ebay. Don't keep the greedy corporate big-wigs living in houses similar to the Carrington estate. You are shelling out extra money in hard times for a show you love while the "powers that be" are probably hiring more servants to wait on them in their mansions. Paramount is notorious for pulling this this stunt. There many other companies who do not do this and only release full seasons. If the other companies see Paramount getting away with this i'm afraid they will follow suit.
I have enjoyed a lot of TV in my life, from Northern Exposure and Upstairs Downstairs to Seinfeld and Green Acres. Dynasty remains a pleasure no matter how ridiculous it seems. The plots were zany, to be honest. But the show is just a hoot, plain and simple.
That being said, I am outraged that Season 3 (and possibly future seasons) is going to be divided up into volumes instead of complete seasons. I can only guess that the studio wants to milk us of our cash. Studios have done this cheesy practice with other shows, such as Lost in Space, Spongebob, and so forth. What pigs these companies can be sometimes.
Like other reviewers here, I am furious and disgusted at the ugly amount of greed and at the severe lack of respect for the customer. I will not be buying this until the price is cut significantly for half a season. I love the program but not this much. I urge others to voice their displeasure and demand a reasonable price point, as well as complete season sets without these stupid "volume" editions. We definitely deserve better treatment than this.
I'm not sure if this is Paramount's or the Spelling estate's doing. I do know that "Love Boat" is splitting up the season as well and it also is a Spelling show (Perhaps Candi Spelling needs another gift wrapping room?).
In any event, if not for the fact that this was my favorite show from the 80s, I would not buy this set out of sheer protest and disgust. I think the disrespect that Paramount or Candi Spelling is showing to their customers is reprehensible. I do know that I will not touch any Paramount show, such as "Love Boat" that continues to put out half seasons. Unfortunately, I love Dynasty enough to take the abuse for this one show, but this is IT. Shame on them.
Storyline, plenty happens in Season 3; this show had already hit its stride in Season 2 and fans were treated to exactly what they wanted: the strong bond of love between Krystal Carrington (Linda Evans) and her husband wealthy Denver tycoon Blake Carrington (John Forsythe); plenty of plot-stirring hyjinks by Blake's ex-wife Alexis (Joan Collins) who uses anything to get back at Blake, including a son who was kidnapped at birth (Adam Carrington) and the first not-so-ex husband of Krystal, hunky tennis-pro Mark Jennings (Geoffrey Scott). Confused? Hang on, there are even more characters that get thrown into the pot this season: Krystal's scheming niece, Sammy Jo (Heather Locklear), who shows up just in time during the episode 12 to claim her "late" husband Steven Carrington's inheritance; Kirby (Kathleen Beller), the daughter of Blake's trusted servant Joseph, who stirs the hearts of Adam Carrington & Fallon's husband Jeff...oh yeah, he's also the guy who is being driven crazy by Adam because Adam doesn't want to share Colby Co.Read more ›

I loved the series Dynasty then and I have not lost my zeal for it now. I enjoy going back to all the lavishness and the story lines and the entire cast always leaves you aching... Read morePublished on February 13, 2014 by EmeraldsOnly
I never expected this to that good. I am glad I bought this movie. Joan Collins plays her part very well.Published on January 3, 2014 by Rosi Kendrick
A bit pricey but still worth the investment. It was fun to watch the continuing battles between the Carrington's & Colby's originally aired over 25+ years ago.Published on July 17, 2013 by Diana Pfender

On the bright side, at least one has time to get some money together for the next season, so no harm to the monthly budget. Still, it would be nice to have all seasons available and ready to download.

The only thing we can do is wait until the 2nd half of season 3 comes out, then Amazon will offer them as a set for a better price. But I agree it sucks to release it that way. Don't they realize a lot of us won't buy ANY part of the season till we can get the whole thing?
