It's your definitive reference guide to the smashingly popular primetime TV soap "Dynasty," with cast list, character guide, episode guide, "fun and useless information" about the show and its stars and much more!

Dynasty High, your reference guide to TV's "Dynasty"

In the 1980s, Blake Carrington, his wife Krystle and his conniving ex-wife Alexis ruled on the ABC nighttime schedule. Now you can relive those days, whether you're rewatching the episodes on SoapNet or just remembering the times! "Dynasty High" is jam-packed with features on the fabulous Carringtons and Colbys:

* A meaty description of each and every "Dynasty" and "The Colbys" episode, with title and original airdate
* A comprehensive cast list
* An exhaustive character guide that shows the relationships of all the major and minor characters of both shows
* Full credit list to the people behind the shows
* An interactive debate section
* "Fun and useless" information about "Dynasty" and "The Colbys" and their stars
* Birthdays of the shows' stars
* Official websites of the stars (with hyperlinks in the electronic edition!)
* A guide to merchandise associated with the shows
(Plus, the episode guide includes a special tongue-in-cheek "Catfight Count" of the battles between Alexis and Krystle and the other "Dynasty" femmes!)


From the character guide:

Blake Carrington
Parents: Tom & Ellen Lucy Carrington
Siblings: Ben Carrington, Dominique Deveraux
Spouses: Alexis Morell, Krystle Jennings
Children: Adam Carrington, Fallon Carrington, Steven Carrington, Amanda Carrington, Kristina Carrington
Grandchildren: L.B. Colby, Danny Carrington, Lauren Colby, surrogate son of Adam Carrington
Wealthy, at first ruthless, then later compassionate, oil magnate. Owner of the Denver football team, the 45- or 48-room (depending on which character or episode you believe) Carrington mansion, the Carrington Mall in Aspen, the Carrington Plaza in Denver, a cabin on Manchester Lake, a lake itself, and other goodies. Mother died when he was only 4. Worked as an oil-rigger by day and went to school at night to eventually found Denver Carrington. Injured in an oil-rig explosion in Denver in 1964. Lost his temper when discovering his wife Alexis Carrington with one of the Carrington staff, Roger Grimes, in 1965, and had her sign papers and leave town. Often at odds with his son Steven Carrington. Raped wife Krystle Carrington in a drunken rage. Convicted of the manslaughter of Ted Dinard and was put on probation. Blinded (temporarily!) by mobsters for a botched business deal in 1982. Challenged son Steven Carrington for custody of Steven’s son Danny Carrington. Lost his memory in a Hong Kong oil-rig explosion in 1986 and was wooed by Alexis. Ran for governor against Alexis in 1987. Questioned for the killing of Roger Grimes in 1989 and in hoarding a fortune in World War II Nazi artwork. Imprisoned in 1989 until late 1991, when he was pardoned by the governor.

Professional Reviews

Dynasty High book on TV show
I bought this book because I liked the show in the 1980s. It's pretty comprehensive - big cast list, has the relatives of all the characters listed in their bios ... I got another copy for my cousin who's a big "Dynasty" fan. This one has quotes from teh stars, to. Worth the money.
