    I've got an idea of how this poll will look, but I'm asking all the same: which Alexis overall do you like better?

    Let's see. A prune or a tart? One can get dried out, the other stale. I prefer the tart. She's more entertaining.

    O-R Alexis (the great Joan Collins)-- she was the expert Alexis on ABC Dynasty.

    Whatever chance the other new incarnations have of winning these there's no way nu Alexis can or ever could win out over the original.

    Although this role is the only thing I've ever liked the ex-Mrs. Hamlin in, I'd have to choose the original.

    I voted for Joan's portrayal of Alexis Carrington but then I expect many on this forum will so the results are going to be predictable. Dynasty 2.0 lacks a certain style and substance and that's saying something considering how camp the original version became.

    Started to begin to like the new Dynasty. Untill Enter Alexis. No way this new, slutty version of Alexis can be compared to the old, stylish version. I mean, the looks, the voice!

    Yes, you read that right. Not in the way she dressed.

    While it is obvious who is the better one, somehow the show started to improve around the time (a little before actually, with Liam) of Alexis' arrival. While the original produced a meticulous first season sans Alexis, this one was limping along till she arrived, which makes you wonder why they waited so long.

    Maybe they wanted to set the proper groundwork first?

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    I can't take part in any of these polls, because i need at least another full season of nuDynasty for that. Before they retooled nuDynasty, it would have been an easy task with just voting for the old ones in every of the polls. But after some very strong episodes and that amazing cliffhanger show, i'm no longer sure what to think. :think:
    I need more time and more nu episodes.

    You didn't like Paige on KL? :eck: I loved her after she joined the Sumner Group and Paige quickly became one of my favorite Knots characters. :)

    I wasn't sure where else to post this, but I decided a little comparison shot between both Alexis' would be fun:


    The shot of Joan is from Season 9, when she would have been about 56. Interestingly, that's about how old Nicolette was in this photo (unless I'm wrong and she was actually 55... meh, close enough :lol:).
