Another successful evening soap opera of the 80s which aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989 for 9 seasons and 220 episodes of aproximately 46 minutes each.

It featured the interesting and peculiar lives of the Carringtons, a wealthy oil business family in Denver.

Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) was the patriarch of the family, his often troubled wife was Krystle Grant Jennings Carrington (Linda Evans); the Carrington children included: Adam (Gordon Thomson), lost in a kidnapping; Fallon (Emma Samms), the spoiled brat child; Steven (Jack Coleman), openly gay; and Amanda (Catherine Oxenberg), hidden from Blake by his ex-wife Alexis (Joan Collins).

One of the most infamous Dynasty characters was the villian Alexis, owner of Carrington rival ColbyCo. She was ruthless, and always plotting to cause trouble to the other characters.

It is intersting to note that Angie Dickinson was first offered the role of Krystle Carrington while Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and Raquel Welch were all considered by Dynasty producers for the role of Alexis finally given to Joan Collins.
