    Go for it. It's worth it for the second half of the season. And you might as well buy both seasons of The Colbys while you're at it.

    I went through season 6A again when UK Drama run it, and it was painful. It was painful because you could see the exact moment the show's narrative sinks; the first few episodes have all these interesting threads about Miles and Fallon and Jason Colby and the Colbys reappearing, and then they leave and we are stuck with Moldavia and Rita. I am guessing one can enjoy the Rita silliness more if they decide so, but I never could. And Joel was a monstrosity. The one who does shine through this abysmal story is Heather Locklear, but then she is usually completely underestimated by the brass.
    Can you just buy the second volume? :DI always thought Cazenove was hot but he looks so darn boyish irresistible on that cover!

    But if I buy S6, doesn't that ultimately behoove me to also purchase S7 & S8, since they'd be the only remaining seasons I don't have?

    And do I really want S7 & s8?? I can't imagine that I do!

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    You should definitely get S6 and the Colbys Box. After you have watched these, you can still decide if you want 7 and 8 or not. :D :p

    No, I can't imagine season 7 DVDs being worth it. As posters here have said, even 7A, which has better pace and plotting up to Singapore over catatonic 7B, is still a showcase of DYNASTY wasting its great potential, something that was signature DYNASTY. I mean, in the end what I remember DALLAS for was a show given a mediocre background story and turning it into narrative gold and DYNASTY continuously getting casting and background story gold and turning it into straw, like a perverse reversal of the girl's trick in Rumpelstiltskin.

    I would never encourage anyone to buy ugly volume sets.
