    Blake's murder trial

    Jock's murder trial

    Julia's murder trial

    Ellie tries to break Jock's will (but it was too truncated)

    Alexis' murder trial (but only because it was so deliciously stupid, and not in a particularly good way -- and I want to see Alexis tried for Mark's murder as Krystle is tried for Tracey's, Alexis having spied Krystle slapping Tracey from the hallway at Denver-Carrington... Sadly, none of that happened).

    Funny, I don't remember this courtroom scene from THE COLBYS, despite its importance -- only the shotgun scene from the stairs:






    I'm struggling to remember a courtroom scene from KNOTS; I'm sure it was superior, but I'm really rusty on it.

    Flawed though it was, THE COLBYS sure was doing better work than its parent series at the same time.

    I really wish they'd taken half a season to introduce The Colbys on DYNASTY -- while Alexis was running around trying to capture the throne of Moldavia, and Krystle's kidnapping delayed until mid-Season 6.

    My #6 would have been the Danny Carrington custody battle.

    Monsters, that's what they are!

    PS: Did you realize how long it´s been since Miss Piggy last appeared in these forums...?

    We the jury hereby find the defendant, Dynasty, guilty on all counts of being best courtroom drama.

    Alexis-Joan_Collins_(1981).jpg

    "That's my mother", and it's the mother of all courtroom dramas according to Soapchat. Blake's trial not only ticked all the boxes, it also brought us Alexis and was the only episode of a soap to give us, not one, but SEVEN freeze frames. What more could you ask for??



    Apologies that there's no top 5 this time, I'm not feeling the best and couldn't face all the adding up. Anyway, it was a landslide victory for Dynasty this week.
