Yes, with Emma I think it could have worked.
Bo Hopkins appeared in a two-part episode as the Sheriff from a small Wyoming town who travels to Los Angeles on the trail of Paul Burke, a cross-dressing serial killer. Hopkins had a spin-off that was a mid-season replacement, it was renewed for a full season the following fall before being cancelled.
Patricia Crowley played an amphetamine addicted woman who was framed for the murder of her young lover (Ted McGinley) by her husband (Richard Anderson) and his mistress (Deborah Adair).
In an episode that ABC aired at 10:00 p.m. (instead of the show's regular 9:00 p.m. slot) Lee Bergere played a down on his luck Hollywood director who made kiddie porn. He couldn't understand why he would go to prison for directing his "masterpieces".
Carole Cook had a recurring role as, what else, a madam who was an informant for Husky and Bitch.
Dale Robertson appeared in the first season as Husky's father, a grizzled retired cop before leaving the show complaining of lack of storyline.
I love this alternate reality. I want to hear about all the other cast members and their roles.
Heather Locklear would play a new kid on the beat who goes undercover as a hooker (pun intended; I have no regrets ).
I think she kinda played that on HOTEL.
I wouldn't know, I never saw HOTEL.
Someone here once said it was like THE LOVE BOAT on carpet instead of at sea. It was also said to be masquerading as a soap when it wasn't really. Both those comments are spot on.
Michael Nader had a recurring role as a "loose cannon" cop who would rough up suspects.
And who has an on-again-off-again relationship with Bitch... although some people make snide remarks that they should switch nicknames.
First of all: A fight in a lily pond and a former president saying hello, that is not a storyline, it's just one scene each without any "follow up" that actually changes the entire plotline as to later it is remembered as "a storyline". It goes with the rest and isn't conclusive enough to be on its own. Like saying the attempted kidnapping of Amanda is a storyline, when in fact it a part of a bigger story (and "ending").
Second: I don't agree about Steven's back and forth about his sexuality, as irritating as it could be at times. A gay man, but more important, a young man, could easily be confused about his sexuality and discover his liking to both sides along the path of life. And it's not uncommon for any man to want to have a family life. Not to mention the health risk in the 80's being gay. So I have no problem with that side of Steven, and it added depth and character to him as a person and later as a father. In the Dynasty universe, I'm quite sure Steven isn't done with women despite the exiting wrestles and hay rides he endures with Bart.
(The Moldavia Massacre isn't so bad a storyline if you bother to take a second look at it. Although it could have been carried out nicer, and the real problem lies in the aftermath, not the massacre itself.)
Blake's amnesia is very logic, and was needed to end the long going feud and explosive hatred from Alexis that began in season 6 (which we all know stemmed from love for Blake and rejection from the very same). The amnesia became the cool down medicine Alexis so badly sought, and allowed things to return to Dynasty normal. Alexis was on a psychotic peak for almost a year and some remembrance and dancing with Blake took her back to her not so bitchy self, and allowed the audience to see what it was Blake and Alexis once had, because it was in fact a bit difficult to understand what Blake ever saw in Alexis, Blake himself being moody and rough at times, but, apart from a few, treated people with respect and had a good heart when helping those around him. Not to mention the way he adored Krystle, something Alexis seemed incapable of having with another person. She was pure evil to almost everyone, her children being the exception, but even they got a taste of the dark force.
Those were some magical episodes, and had everything a human could want in the B-K-A-love triangle.
- Blake also has his very dark side even when writers forget it later. He sent the dogs on Walter and beater on Michael, raped Krystle, killed Ted, blackmailed Alexis to stay away from her children, hurted Roger, tried to take away Danny ...
- with the help of amnesia they could end this battle and show us what Alexis & Blake had in their past together. They should have gone even further and making Alexis pregnant. S7 would have been drama gold ...
