As John Forsythe said in an interview circa 2000 that, as compared to DALLAS, it was much harder to delineate an identity for DYNASTY. And he said at another point that the producers of DYNASTY didn't know what they wanted. Would it have helped DYNASTY to be a little more focused on business? Maybe not always to the degree that DALLAS was, but DALLAS' best years seemed to involve a season-long business story against which all the characters could bounce off. Otherwise, DYNASTY usually just gave us a slew of none-too-focused, and often isolating, romantic imbroglios that simply occurred in numerous corners of the show simultaneously, with no unifying factors.
