Dynasty Goes "Back To Basics"

This August 1986 article from a Malaysian paper discusses mid season 6 changes in Dynasty and the producers' confidence they managed to fix their show that began its descent in the ratings.

The article is of course very similar to another piece which I believe was published in US Magazine several months earlier and was titled "Saving Dynasty".

Unfortunately, the lackluster recasting of the Amanda Carrington character and many other mistakes in the execution of Dynasty plots during season 7 exacerbated the show's ratings problems.

As for season 6, I did enjoy the new energy of its second part very much, especially the addition of Kate O'Mara and the late Cristopher Cazenove - I wish they had kept O'Mara and 'an evil Ben' for the remainder of season 7.
