Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dynasty was set in Denver, and concerned the trials and tribulations of the oil-rich Carrington clan. John Forsythe and Linda Evans were top-billed as Blake and Krystle Carrington, but all the juicy scenes went to the cunning, conniving Alexis Carrington Colby, portrayed with caution to the winds by Joan Collins. Other regulars included Pamela Sue Martin and Emma Samms as Fallon Carrington Colby, Al Corley and Jack Coleman as Steven Carrington, and a mob of others. Originally telecast from January 12, 1981, to May 11, 1989; in October 1991, ABC tried to strike oil twice with the two-hour Dynasty: The Reunion.
