    These stupid DYNASTY women constantly droning on about their men not opening up to them ---- I mean, what the hell do these nagging ladies actually want.....??

    On and on and on.

    Obviously, Krystle and Claudia were the worst offenders, but they weren't alone.



    "Gerard, you look like you're in pain. Why aren't you sharing it with me instead of holding it all inside...?"

    I'm not always some huge defender of DALLAS' producer Leonard Katzman, but during the '80s he made a derisive remark in the press about rival series DYNASTY being "a 'woman's show'" -- and I knew what he meant. It wasn't that DYNASTY had strong female characters so much as DYNASTY so often sidelined story and character on the altar of attending neurotically to women's "feelings" in an often pointless and narcissistic way.

    No wonder David Jacobs said Katzman would have hated TNT's nuDALLAS.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    Season 1 DYNASTY wasn't like that, and to a degree not even season 2. This actually started when women (other than Alexis) moved more and more to peripheral roles in the action and all they could do to give them screen time was have them grill men about feelings. I mean, what else could Krystle and Claudia do by season 4?

    Yes, and lots of womanly "but I'm not fulfilled" dialogue.

    Lots.
