the TV series Dynasty? Yep! That's the one. Beautiful people, beautiful people, beautiful locations, ridiculous situations - including the annual catfight.
ruled! I had kept notes on all the characters, who they were related to, who they'd been married to, etc. Something would happen in season 5 and I'd say, "But that contradicts what they said in season 1!" And people would look at me like I was nuts! My favourite, favourite
storyline was when Adam tried to remove Jeff from his job by putting poison in the paint they used in Jeff's office. THAT was a fun storyline! (I'm *so* sad...
I was hooked on the soapie Loving
(does anyone except me even remember that one?). In fact, the entire country was hooked. What made it so torturous was, this was still during apartheid when there were only two "official" languages, and they alternated days on TV. So Loving
was only on three times a week. Having to wait TWO WHOLE DAYS to see the next episode - especially when you're 16 and very impatient - was TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE, I tell ya!!
Again, I kept notes of all the characters, who played them, who they'd married, etc. And would get very annoyed when people's middle names would suddenly change or what school they'd been to or whatever. How dare they mess with my soap. But I didn't bat an eye when a character was suddenly played by a different actor... eh, who cared about that!!
Some trivia: they crossed a couple of Loving
characters over into our local soapie, Egoli, Place of Gold
, and that was just freaky! Egoli
is still on, but I haven't watched it since Cliff Simon left and turned into a Goa'uld!!
