    The good thing about Dynasty S8 is, they used some re-decorated sets from "The Colbys". But ... other than that ...? :think: :D

    I loved The Colbys, it seems so much less far fetched than Dynasty and Stephanie Beacham plays Sable so well.

    This just sums up Frankie so well. Projecting her wrong doing onto others. She only did it because he was there. How dare he be there! Why didn't everyone keep him away from little innocent fragile Frankie?
    @Willie Oleson a whore is a whore is a Whore is a WHORE. Don't you think?

    She didn't want to be there (but Connie persuaded her) and when she and Jason were reunited she wanted to leave (but he stopped her).
    Then Philip came back and he triggered other feelings of love and non-closure, it was such a terrible dilemma. And then she also had to deal with that scheming, bitching sister.

    True that. Noone on "The Colbys" is just pure black or white, everyone is in countless shades of grey.

    If I want to leave. I leave. Unless I am shackled to the floor. Bitch could have upped and left, nobody made her stay. Nobody made her do anything. She did what she wanted.
    I just wish Sable had have actually beaten the shit out of her.

    She placed herself there and stayed. Frankie knew what she was doing.

    That said, if she were played by another actress, she'd seem less slutty because she might seem less passive-aggressive/WhatPoorMe? entitled.

    Although O'Mara would maybe be a bit too vampy. Too much a seductress maybe. I just think that Ross' Frankie was too Bambified victim when she was clearly being an unspeakable slut. She should perhaps have been played colder and more overtly calculating. Or maybe I am wrong and the weediness of her characterization was perfect. I mean I do hate the bitch and root for Sable at every stage of the story. So that's just perfect.

    You whores are making me want to rewatch the show. I started thinking about it a few days ago and this is making it worse. :D

    Then again, I have never objected to discussing what a sucky slut Frankie was!

    Frankie is pure slut. The only countless shades of grey we see on her are her hair.

    That's such a simple and lazy point of view.
    THE COLBYS challenges the viewer to think outside the box.

    Come on, even *I * would never say "the viewer." From my count here, there must have been at least six of you watching it...

    Or challenge to crawl inside her box. Which also makes her a slut.

    Yeah well ... you guys can hate her all you want. I still like Frankie as well as Katharine Ross playing her. I would not want it to be another actress, for me she fits right in there. :p

    the title is reference to an older poem or hymn or any number of Grammatical forms Wednesday's child is in the know or full of woe whereas Thursdays''s child has far to go. Perhaps they are referring to bliss in her relationship with agua man
