Darn - when I try to go to the cwseed website I view a white page with a list of contents (links take me nowhere) :(

Did they change the music score of that clip and make it more dramatic or is that how it was normally?
The copy of season six that I have is ripped from old Soapnet airings and it's definitely the same score as this.

This clip is one of the highest definition versions that I've seen of Dynasty. Which makes the scene with Joan's stunt double all the more hilarious as it's so glaringly obvious that it isn't Joan.

Same as always. Just look at your stick, it's the last file on it! :D

I dunno
Nothing big but original Dynasty is featured in this trailer for CWs online service Seed:


Not exactly surprising, but there's a flashing image of Alexis and then the tagline "VAMPS + VIXENS"

Sorry but this trailer screams "Braindead audiences be ready for us!". No wonder "Dynasty" is going to be the best thing in it!! :tv2:

Interesting that they choose a clip of Alexis / Sable season nine considering the obvious options they could've gone with - makes me wonder if Sybill/Sabella will show up since Monica/Monique is already on the show... :)

What possible reason was a stunt double needed for this scene?

Joan has an unusually delicate throat.

In one interview, Joan (or someone) said that she used the double because this was the period when she and John Forsythe weren't speaking and she was afraid he'd go heavy on her when he grabbed her. Now Joan has been known to make fanciful claims like her "I woke up in the emergency room after the lily pond catfight" tale. However, when Alexis was being throttled by Kirby and Neal McVane a few years prior, Joan didn't use a double so maybe she was truly afraid of him. Or maybe she just couldn't be arsed with learning the stunt coordination that day.

Wasn't the double used because initially it was going to be Blake grabbing and pushing Alexis down the stairs in a fall that made it seem like she could be dead? I remember the coverage at the time was how Collins was able to veto that scenario and producers went for the strangulation instead.

Psh, they should have done that, Blake pushing Alexis down the stairs instead of the strangulation stuff, which looked more comical than anything else. Maybe Blake could have started out strangling Alexis, but she strikes at his face with those ginormous fingernails of hers', wrestles herself free - only to trip as one of her feet slips out of its heel, and she falls down the stairs, landing at the feet of Krystle.

The quality of that clip is so awesome, even for it being "just" youtube quality! How i would LOVE to have S9 in HD! :(
@Gabriel Maxwell, still nothing new on that front?

Regretfully, after over a year and a half - iTunes still only has seasons 2, 3 and 6 and Amazon has season 5 in HD and that's it.

Thanks for the info. Why on earth doesn't Amazon have all those available (2-6) in HD escapes me.
