    everything about this was bad!! He was not appealing as a character. Berger sounded dubbed but by someone who also couldn’t speak English! It’s amazing. Then his final scene! So much cocaine! Hilarious. Fallon and this guy? Never!! Michael Nader introduced almost same time- total perfection in every way and so much perfection dex was in every single episode the rest of the shows run. Got something so right and so so so so wrong.

    Yes, Berger was one of their very few wrong casting choices, he wasn't Dynasty worthy at all imo. I HATE all his scenes and always feel bad for PSM that she had to do them with that horrible person.
    But Nader and Adair were spot on!

    I remember my utter shock and revulsion when I first became acquainted with the character. Yes, every thing about him was hideously wrong. I think it's a testament to Pamela Sue's acting talents that she was able to hold back the vomit in her scenes with him. Actually wasn't around that time she got sick and wanted to leave?

    That's it right there... He did it! Horrible. He wasn't even charming or charismatic. He wasn't attractive, his performance was so stilted and awkward and creepy. He killed Fallon Carrington. She could never be taken seriously ever again after his vile alien hands had pawed all over her.

    I HATE HIM.

    I'd have rather endured a two season romance of her and Mark Jennings than him.

    I remember a scene where Fallon tells Peter, "You brought excitement back into my life."

    I mean... I don't whether to laugh or to puke.

    I wish we had seen more of the De Vilbis family.

    Perhaps Sasha Hehn could play Peter on NuDynasty.

    Yes he looked like a typical euro-playboy. Now he looks like a Swede but Swedes are very popular these days (on television, I mean).

    Excuse me?

    Don't blame it on us. It's Britain's fault.

    Well, to be fair, they did probably cast him for his Eurosleaze factor and they got that in spades and then some.

    I think they cast him because at one point he was considered a handsome, talented European actor. Sadly what they got was a coke addled letch.

    DYNASTY loved to take a walk on the wild side. It was such an edgy soap!

    Watching Pee Wee de Vilbis on DYNASTY alongside Naldo Marchetta on DALLAS -- both sleazy, opportunist, coke-taking, cravat-wearing, phoney aristocrat pieces of Eurotrash, circa 1984 -- kind of enhanced my appreciation of both.

    A trumped-up murder charge or hysterical paralysis. Hmm ... it's a tricky one.

    Which is why I'd tend to agree with @Willie Oleson 's assertion that Berger was perfectly cast had the show around him been competent. But because it wasn't, his casting just comes off as another bungle.

    The only thing I don't like about Peter De Vilbis (not: Devilbis) is that he never quoted Modern Talking.

    Nothing says "yuletide" like The Devil's Bus.
