5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Prime Time Soap Opera Ever!, May 22, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dynasty: Season 2 (DVD)
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!
