Apologies for posting it in a new thread, but my love-for-order self found the other thread spinning in all sorts of directions. Plus I thought this would be a fun topic. Interesting. I can't imagine what that must have been like, but I am glad you liked it. My first DYNASTY memory was when I was 10 in 1981. Season 1 was airing in the state network that did NOT have DALLAS, but it was not really advertised much. They aired it at 11 p.m., and the only reason I could watch was at that time in the summer nobody else was watching TV. In fact, I found out later it was part of a package deal--the Greek state network had bought some other US series and it was thrown in as a bonus. Because it was so cheap, they went ahead and also got the second season and aired it really soon, and then the show took off and the distributors started charging DYNASTY as the main attraction of the packet. They introduced it for cheap like all good drug dealers do. I was fascinated by the Steven-Blake story more than anything, because at that time I had not even realized I was gay, but thanks to DYNASTY and Al Corley it sounded like being gay could mean you were a totally decent guy (sadly I realized it just as Steven swore men off). But at the time I also completely understood where Blake was coming from. I also assumed the story was really the story of Steven and Krystle, two outsiders to the DYNASTY and whether they would find their place in it. Little did I know what would follow.
