Dynasty: Season 2
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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

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.
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.Read more ›
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!
