    Meeting the Colbys at home

    According to The Reunion, in true Dynasty fashion, that (and more) didn't happen and/or wasn't the case in its world. Lol.

    Meeting the Colbys at home

    ....And, so that they can have the poor man's equivalent on The Colbys of this scene here at circa the 1.38 minute mark perhaps? (While maybe secretly foreshadowing some of the folk to come on Dynasty.)

    Meeting the Colbys at home

    Because they haven't run out of power plays ;)

    Police search German allotment in hunt for Madeleine McCann

    Why did you open another thread on Christian B re the McCann case?

    Did Alexis have to be related to the Scott sisters?

    IIRC, TC was supposed to be launched the day after the above first aired; but programming got disrupted because Prez Reagan was making an important speech and TC went to air the following week. Jason kicked off TC's opening episode by saying Colby Enterprises was already in talks with the...

    Watching The Colbys for the First Time

    They say men look for wives like their mothers. I'm amused that Bliss's first boyfriend was modelled on the real-life son of her on-screen father: the young and bearded Fraser Heston, marine biologist and expert white-water river guide. Baby Moses himself in The Ten Commandments. IIRC, Sean...

    Watching The Colbys for the First Time

    Bliss' character was intentionably pliable, I think. Her interest at any given time was whatever her current boyfriend was interested in. That way she could be the spare Colby child that producers could fall back on, the understudy for multiple roles waiting in the wings. Claire Yarlett was...

    Zach Powers on Dynasty

    Caress found herself in prison twice. The first time -- her backstory -- for murder. RM's S7 appearance was when Caress tried a bit of nonsensical blackmail, which got her what she wanted for as long as it took for Zach to write her a cheque. Alas, she got greedy and cooked her goose.

    Zach Powers on Dynasty

    Yes. Like Jason, in S6, having the exclusive right from the Chinese govt to ship out all oil pumped in the South China Sea; which was why he could tell Blake that Blake could ship his oil out on a rubber dinghy for all he cared if Blake didn't agree to partner him in building the oil pipeline...

    Zach Powers on Dynasty

    Jason's tankers, lol.

    Zach Powers on Dynasty

    @Ray&Donna you may also want to look at the Dynasty episode immediately before (IIRC) RM's second appearance; the one where Caress & Blake meet the (asst??) DA and after the DA leaves, she briefly mentions Zach to Blake. Part of Zach's conversation with Alexis is a variation of Zack's...

    “Not exactly Raffles, is it?”: Watching Tenko

    Lol. I was stating the obvious, wasn't I.

    Watching The Colbys for the First Time

    Right. Phil didn't believe the child was his. Frankie insisted it was. It wasn't on anybody's radar that Jason was a candidate for being Jeff's parent, other than Jason himself. So it wouldn't have occured to Miles -- who was bringing the case -- that another Colby was Jeff's father and demand...

    Watching The Colbys for the First Time

    You're asking this about 6 episodes in? ....Maybe the writers felt they shouldn't have to go down that road?

    “Not exactly Raffles, is it?”: Watching Tenko

    Organic examples of the continuation of pre-war rivalries and prejudices, I feel. 1. The intra rivalries among the expatriate communities, especially among the colonial powers, that was more than about just wealth and station. 2. The already existing discrimination felt by POC, including the...

    “Not exactly Raffles, is it?”: Watching Tenko

    I learnt how to fashion a needle! Admittedly, not one bit personally useful as me making do with a rounded metal seive over a flame to replace a toaster. Sable filching a woman's hatpin to deflate Dex's lido reminds me of this story. A bit of mischief that sharply contrasts the two sets of...

    New suspect in Madeleine McCann case

    That evening, McCaans said they left for dinner at the Tapas at 8.30pm. They were the first in their group to arrive. The Paynes were the last to arrive, closer to 9pm. Pondering.... If Christian B was indeed "in the immediate area" with a plan to rob the McCaan apartment and/or abduct a...

    New suspect in Madeleine McCann case

    From The Sun's report if 29th June, 2020: Prosecutors claim they have traced the phone used by their prime suspect and found it connected to the mast owned by the resort complex where the McCann's were staying. The Sun report is referring to the Australian 60 Minutes programme on Christian B...
