I was very happy to see your top choice in last week's poll as I couldn't agree more - Alexis' "sister dearest" Caress Morrell, played by the classy Kate O'Mara, was bursting with little used potential and should have stayed on "Dynasty" longer (or at least - kept coming back).

As of today, I'll post several of my favorite "Dynasty" scenes, many of which are not widely cited or known, but for one reason or another, I enjoy watching them.
This article was published in late 1984 when Linda Evans' character finally becomes a mother in the show's 5th season. How was the baby cast, how much did she earn and how much did she 'work'? And how did Evans herself feel about motherhood at the time?

Say what you want about the flaws of season 6 (including that dreadful season opener), but I still can't wait to put my hands on the upcoming season 6 region 2 DVD release and see, for instance, the "Masquerade" episode in all its newly re-mastered glory. Oh, and - Maxwell Caulfield on the polo field... Meaow!
So, will Larry Hagman appear in the new "Dallas" on TNT or not? Two weeks after visiting Joan Collins at her home in London's Belgravia, Hello Magazine travels to Ojai above Los Angeles to visit Larry Hagman, a great television icon of the 80s and a true gentleman.

Now a little eye candy for John James fans courtesy of a fun little article from Orange Coast magazine that goes behind the scenes at Dynasty and asks "Jeff Colby" what he thinks of his co-stars.

You may remember the 150th Dynasty episode party video (1986) from my YouTube channel (you can check it out again after the jump). Two years later, in the fall of 1988, the cast got together again to celebrate reaching their ultimate milestone.

The 2010 season at the Filoli mansion may be over, but the holiday events are only coming (November 26-December 4). Here is now a small collection of images of one of TV's most glorious properties.

This 9-page article that goes behind the scenes at Dynasty was published in the summer of 1985 when the show's popularity peaked and the producers were about to unleash "Dynasty II: The Colbys."
27 years ago, Jon-Erik Hexum and Joan Collins starred in Aaron Spelling's "Making of a Male Model" - one of the most successful TV movies at the time. Sadly, just a year later, the young actor with a very promising career (who may have ended up playing Dynasty's Dex Dexter) lost his life on the set of CBS' "Cover Up."
Last night in Beverly Hills, Joan Collins and Linda Gray - two divas of 80s iconic soaps "Dynasty" and "Dallas" - shared the spotlight as presenters at California On Locations Awards.

I've got plenty more Dynasty articles to share, but here's one I haven't been able to find, only the cover - so if anyone has it and would like to share the scans, please let me know.
This is actually a 1984 article from People Magazine focusing on real life owners of "prime-time properties" - mansions that had become known to masses on hit serials like "Dallas," "Knots Landing," "Dynasty," and "Falcon Crest."
