    Something random I realized: every single member of the immediate Carrington family has gone through a recast:

    Most recently, the two Mrs. Carrington have each been recast (a little bit of a stretch in Cristal's case, as she was not technically recast, just replaced with a different character; but both are essentially the same and based off of Krystle, so we'll just call it a recast).

    Back on the original series, all four of the Carrington children were all recast (as much as we'd all like to ignore the Reunion, it still happened, and Gordon Thomson got replaced).

    But going back even further, you realize that Blake was the very first character to be recast: he was originally going to be played by George Peppard, who did film a few scenes before being given the pink slip. Enter John Forsythe.


    Somehow it all makes the recent events regarding Nicollette Sheridan's departure kinda poetic. In a weird, ironic sort of way. :lol:

    Well, in what is officially the series DYNASTY, neither Blake nor Adam were ever recast. The other actors playing these roles were 1) Blake in a version of the pilot which never aired and 2) Adam in a made-for-TV two-part movie. When channels rerun DYNASTY, they never include the reunion movie, and neither does Amazon have it in their complete series online. Same goes for the CW seed.

    Which makes me wonder who owns the rights to "The Reunion"? Why hasn't any company been able or willing to release this on dvd?

    Yeah, maybe they should just transfer that Reunion thingy to HD and then offer it for free download to anyone interested.
    That shouldn't be more downloads than 67 total worldwide anyway, while 60 of those are out of pure curiosity about the HD picture quality.
    And one of "the other 7" would be Joan Collins herself. :D

    She really didn't like it, actually.

    Yeah, but she was in it and there was a fashion show and stuff. So she would. She said she didn't like S9, but i'd bet my right index finger that she has that season as well, deeply hidden in her closet somewhere.
    I'm sure she didn't watch all her episodes of the S9 set, but i'm also sure she repeatedly watched that scene where she was dressed up like a victorious vampire-queen accusing Blake of killing Roger Grimes! Over and over again! :D

    They have to respect the Geneva conventions like the rest of us.

    The only place I saw it re-run (many years ago) was on the E! Channel, which in retrospect was the perfect place for it.
