    I'm embarrassed to say that I was in grad school when it was on the air, and it was the one show everyone in my house would stop everything to watch. Joan Collins was SO evil!

      Seems like we also had Dynasty parties, where we drank a shot whenever they drank on the show. Not good if you had to teach an early class in the morning!

    Dynasty.....Of course!  I watched "most" episodes.  As I wrack my brain, I'm importing  bits & pieces of Dynasty with Dallas!  LOL.....getting some of the characters confused and on the wrong series!  "Evil" is a kind word for "Alexis,"  lisa...that woman holds the title.
    It's coming in clearer now.  "The Carrington's"....a family of wealthy LaDeeDah's  with John Forsythe as the Big Kahuna....Linda Evans as Krystal....& of course she was the sweet, blonde Angel, crux of Alexis's fierce jealousy....LOL
    OMG...I just remembered now....my silly husband watched it only because he kept waiting for the huge "Cat Fight" between Alexis & Krystal.....LOL   Men!!
    It didn't run quite as long as "Dallas," did it?   That series was one I tried to never miss!  WHO killed J.R??    LOL. 
    Those were the days that night time soap operas were introduced to American viewers, weren't they?!  A walk down Memory Lane.  Thanks Grace!

      Quite welcome indeed.  Dallas & Dynasty were the la riche series that couldn't be missed.

    I remember it, but I didn't watch it.  I was familiar with the general idea and most of the names of the characters, but that was pretty much because of media covering well known shows in one way or another.   My kids were little/babies then, and I'd only indulge in one or two of that type of drama that was on at 10:00 p.m. (weeknights and per week).  Depending on which year, exactly, it was, I watched Dallas, Falcon Crest pretty faithfully. (Remember those?)  For a limited time somewhere in there I watched some limited episodes of Knots Landing (Thursday nights) somewhere in the mix.  Dallas was its own thing.  I didn't have time for spin-off Ewings in a different setting.

    I really liked Falcon Crest and the people on that. 

    At some point along the way and in (or at least related to) the mix there was Thirty Something (Tuesday nights at 10).  I liked and watched that one for as long as it was on (or for most of when it was on). 

    Having said all that, I just thought the people on Dynasty were too ridiculous.  What makes one see one group of people on a show "too ridiculous" and another group on a "same-type-of-thing" show not quite as ridiculous (or at least kind of likeable), I don't know.

    Those were the days when two or three nights a work-week would have a half-decent magazine show on at 10 (not just "real-life murder mystery" type stuff).

    I'm not usually one to be interested much in either television or in re-hashing/re-living "old days", but today I'm in the mood for this type of foolishness.
