    I never watched Dynasty, Die nasty or Dysentry as dear Terry called it, but

    had to google them and

    will vote as such!

    Jeff Colby - as I thought he was handsome if i saw him in a magazine

    prince Micheal - as i once saw Micheal praed in a play

    walter lankershim - as dale Robertson was nice to Miss Ellie

    I'm going to vote for Dynasty's most infamous and unfavourite underdogs:

    1. Rita
    2. Peter De Vilbis
    3. Sarah Curtis


    Edit: but since no-one else is going to vote for them, these votes will have no impact whatsoever.

    2. Caress Morell
    3. Adam Carrington

    My nominees are going to be dark and intense with bitchy undertones. Which means...

    1. Joseph Anders
    2. Adam Carrington
    3. Cecil Colby

    Adam does indeed look very dark and intense, and dangerously handsome.

    Do you remember when Terry interviewed Stephen Fry and he came out as being an enthusiastic fan of Dallas and described Dynasty as being "rubbish" or some other equally derogatory term. Terry looked a bit heartbroken as he seemed to be a fan of both shows.

    oh I always thought that Terry was more a Dallas fan, he championed it far more than Dysentry - and had far more Dallas cast on his show

    Victoria P at Xmas was his biggest ever rating!

    This is a tough one because I love so many of the characters but here goes.

    1: Steven: because he drove so much of the show's drama, particularly in the earlier seasons.

    2: Sammy Jo: another character who is "good value for money" so to speak. Sammy Jo provided great drama and I love Heather Locklear.

    3: Claudia: she was great in her earlier seasons and a bit underutilized in her later ones. I still think they missed a trick by not capitalizing on her rivalry with Sammy Jo in season 6, which as this scene proved (IMO), would've been delicious.

    What? No votes for Lasy Ashley? Jackie? How immensely disappointing ;-)

    1. Amanda I - Catherine Oxenberg was beautiful
    2. Steven I - Al Corley was great
    3. Jeff (this was close with Dex but JJ has the the most handsome factor and I heard he used whoopie cushions on his co-stars)

    Thanks for your votes. It's not necessary to stipulate which version of a character you are voting for because this game is just about the characters and not the actor portraying them. I do agree with your comments though.

    1. Dominique Deveraux because she was a great rival for Alexis.
    2. Jeff Colby because he almost feels like a backbone of the show, like he needed to be there as he was involved in so many key storylines.
    3. Adam Carrington because he was sex on legs and he'd be perfectly capable of filling Alexis' shoes.

    Alexis CC, welcome to the game. I think this is the first post of yours that I've read on Soapchat, it's great having you on board.

    May I ask, is that you in the bath in your profile pic?

    I love a good game so thank you. I'm free to read the forum for the next month or so before work takes over my life once again.
    Yes that is me in the bath.

    It's a nice photo, although the real Alexis would have been in a bubble bath.

    There's still time to vote for Kirby or any other Dynasty character you want to be in the World Cup of Prime Time Soaps. List your 3 choices on this thread before the poll closes at midnight on Sunday.
