Should The Colbys have been The Aqua Dynasty?

There was, of course, the ocean, and the ships. And some of the paintings could have been aquarelles...what else could they have done to emphasize the "water" theme of this great Dynasty spin-off?

They could have done a boat-disaster cliffhanger (of Poseidon-ic proportions) for the season 3 finale.
A water-themed mansion, with mini-ponds and mini-waterfalls inside the house, or a see-through floor with water underneath it...all very luxurious and beautiful of course.

And then the huge underground passage that connects the mansion with the Colby Enterprises Headquarters and the gallery.




A luxurious U-boat for Zach Powers?

A significant water-theme could have made it look more different, kinda like The Flintstones vs. The Jetsons.

And, to use a quote from Charlton Heston on the Dame Edna Show: "unlike the Dynasty actors, we really sweat!"

How about a boat disaster like the Titanic? Maybe the entire Colby clan is on a luxury cruise, only something goes wrong with the ship (there's the conspiracy theory that the Titanic was sunk on purpose as an insurance fraud scheme, perhaps that could be used for this storyline?), and there's a race to find their loved ones and scramble to get onto the lifeboats? Of course all the women are wearing gorgeous evening gowns as they run around with water rising up around the set. lol Perhaps that could be the series Moldavian Massacre, where it serves the purpose of killing off a couple important/main characters and all the guest stars?

Oh, maybe one of the Colbys, Jeff or Miles, is accused of being responsible for the sinking of the ship, so the Colbys have to prove his innocence?

Or Bliss! She always wanted to be or do something...well...something-ish.
Wasn't she a surfer? We could have a surfing contest or two. Maybe there's even another female surfer who rivals Bliss so that they end up having a catfight on the beach:

(skip to 7:20)

Also, I would have had Frankie go running along the beach more often, like in this movie:

(skip to 12:07)

If she looked like that more often, it would have made more sense why Jason would leave Sable for her. lol

Well, this almost happened...Sable probably was destined to the sea...

I would also change the UFO/alien story into something else: Fallon walks on the beach at night (because her car broke down) and then suddenly she discovers the body of a man...but when she comes closer it appears that he's not a man at all! Well, not completely.



Shocking!! What's the story behind this? Does Zach Powers have a secret army of mutated fish-men? Or are they the keepers of another sinister treasure? Is the Colby house built on the ruins of Atlantis?

Ever seen that one fake documentary the Discovery Channel did? Believe it was called "Mermaids - the Body Found."

They could also do a mini-tsunami for the season finale. Zach and Sable discover the remains of a 18th century ship, loaded with treasure. But it's stuck in rock and so...Boom! Splash! Flood! Panic!
