In the debut season, we first meet oil magnate Blake Carrington (John Forsythe), the tough but fair CEO of Denver-Carrington, as he's preparing to marry former secretary Krystle Jennings (Linda Evans). The show's opening story, "Oil", is spread over three episodes and sets up the characters and plots that would unfold throughout the season.
Sweet-as-pie Krystle is met with all-out resentment by Blake's stuffy butler (SORRY, "major domo") Joseph, played to perfection by Lee Bergere, and the staff follow suit. Meanwhile, Blake's grown children are causing their own headaches. Wild child Fallon (Pamela Sue Martin) proudly admits to bedding half the players on Carrington's football team and is also carrying on with studly chauffeur Michael (Wayne Northrop). In the midst of all the bed-hopping comes a tantalising deal from Blake's chief rival Cecil Colby (Lloyd Bochner): if Fallon marries Cecil's nephew Jeff (John James, of the quizzical expressions and upturned eyebrows), he'll absorb the $9.5 million debt owed by Blake and help the continued association between Denver-Carrington and ColbyCo.
Blake's son Steven (Al Corley) is another kettle of fish altogether. Returning to Denver after spending a year in New York with his...da-da-dum...gay lover Ted (Mark Withers), Steven's relationship with his father (and sexuality) goes through some particularly bumpy patches, to say the least.Read more ›
It was also interesting seeing Pamela Sue Martin go from being Nancy Drew on THE HARDY BOYS to becoming the often bitter Fallon Carrington on DYNASTY and having Heather Locklear join the cast as Krystle's greedy niece ( Sammy Jo Dean ) and Joan Collins as Blake's wicked ex-wife (Alexis Carrington )in DYNASTY's 1981-82 Season in the Autumn of 1981 when this show hit its stride.
As a matter of fact, this was the show that made Heather Locklear a star and helped launch Locklear's showbiz career to co-starring future shows like TJ HOOKER, MELROSE PLACE, and SPIN CITY.
These first 2 seasons of DYNASTY also take me back to memory lane to when Ronald Regan was president and we had all those budget cuts from the recession we had back in 1981-1982.
It was also great being able to watch DYNASTY complete & uncut just like they were on ABC as opposed to how the episodes are shown on Pop-TV with all those butchered scenes and additional commercials.
Season 7 deals with the news that Claudia (played by original cast member Pamela Bellwood) has died in a fire that Blake may have had a hand in, the repercussions of Alexis taking control of the Carrington mansion and Denver/Carrington, the campy and elegant British actress Kate O'Mara joining the cast as Alexis' long-lost sister Caress who has spent years in prison due to Alexis which ignites a feud between the two sisters, the arrival of the Fallmonts and their involvment with the Carringtons, the love story between Adam and his former sweetheart Dana (played by Emmy-winng actress Leanne Hunley for her role on "Days of Our Lives") and a super ending with Alexis life in danger and the Carrington's being held captive at the mansion by a former character who everyone thought had died.
Season 7 is great fun with some intelligent plot twists, lots of sexy men for people to enjoy looking at, the women are dressed divinely and "Dynasty" proves that although the series wasn't nearly as popular as it once was (the series finished at #24 with a 17.2 Nielsen Rating for the 1986-1987 TV Season) loyal viewers stuck with it.
The only argument I have about this particular year was the lackluster writing the powers that be had for Diahanne Carrol and her character Dominique.Read more ›

Good season. The only downside is the story about the daughter of Blake and Krystle, which was boring and too dragged out. I just fast forwarded episodes related to the story.Published 1 month ago by Customer1
