Barbara Stanwyck Wallpaper

My first wallpaper of the year is of Barbara Stanwyck, as Connie Colby in The Colbys. Back when I first saw this show in mid-80s, she was my favorite along with Stephanie Beacham as Sable. Prior to the start of the show, I had just seen Barbara Stanwyck in several black & white Hollywood classics and though she was so awesome in those, and was so happy to see her every week in The Colbys 😀

Dynasty II: The Colbys – Random Thoughts

Random thoughts about Dynasty II: The Colbys

I saw The Colbys in the mid-80s when I was about 12, so it’s been 30+ years since I last saw this show. It’s always THE soap I compare anything soapy/luxurious-rich-people-movies-tv-shows against.

– I didn’t like Jason when I was a teenager, thought he was booring and wishy-washy about Sable/Francesca! Now I like him a lot better – he’s still too wishy-washy and unclear with Sable, especially after he decided that wants to divorce but he’s not a rapist like Blake or Miles, and doesn’t seem as cutthroat as Blake as a businessman. Dare I say it he seems mostly a decent man?
– Frankie was too too wishy-washy then, and I still think so. And I’m not entirely clear why she abandoned Jeff – because Cecil Colby told her to? Why couldn’t she stay? Because she and Jason were in love? It’s rather selfish, abandoning her son because of that.
– LOVED Connie and Barbara Stanwyck first time around, and still do! She’s awesome!
– Miles really can’t see beyond his own nose, and he rapes Fallon :/ He’s really immature and violent. I don’t think Miles ever loved Channing, he was still hang up on Fallon.

Dynasty II: The Colbys Wallpaper

The past several months I’ve been re-watching Dynasty for the second time (I don’t really remember anything from the first rewatch about 20 years ago, and originally I only saw about from when Amanda joined the show to the end) and it’s spin-off The Colbys, for the first rewatch ever inspired by discovering in the summer that The Colbys have been released on DVD. When I was a preteen in the 80s and these two shows were aired in my country, The Colbys was my favorite soap, one that I compared all other soaps to ever since. Sable was my favorite character, and I adored Stephanie Beacham in the role. Having finished the rewatch of The Colbys about a month ago, and still loving Sable so much (she’s so much fun!) and Stephanie Beacham, I wanted to do something with her. So here’s a Sable wallpaper :mrgreen:

Dynasty II: The Colbys

I’ve been rewatching Dynasty and its spin-off Dynasty II: The Colbys the last few weeks. These two are the soaps I compare all other soaps to (and always find them lacking). I was about 11 or 12 years old when The Colbys aired in the mid-80s, and I loved it even more than Dynasty. I haven’t seen The Colbys since that airing but it has remained my favorite soap in my memories always! 

Dynasty was re-aired here in 2000, but The Colbys have never been re-aired since that original showing.

I capped as many episodes of Dynasty as I could back in 2000 (with Finnish subtitles because that was the only option!) and had a screencap site that was welcomed by Dynasty fans. I got a lot of feedback on that site – apparently I was the first one to cap the series more consistently and Dynasty fans were happy to get full ep screencaps instead of random shots of fave characters, from all seasons. I tried to do at least a handful of episodes from all seasons. I remember that site was hosted by Fortune City, spread over many accounts like I always had to do. Early 2000s was right around when finding free webspace had started to become harder – either the disk space offered was tiny, or the ads were too intrusive and many free webhosts had either shutdown or been eaten by bigger ones and then the free service shut down.

This summer I learned that my local library has all 9 seasons of Dynasty, remembered that season 5 is available in HD, and that The Colbys have actually come out on DVD, the UK release in 2018 which I finally had to buy. So now I’m battling the urge to cap, cap cap! Can’t seriously upload them though unless I delete at least some of the Game Of Thrones UHD screencaps or one of my other sites. Which is lucky I guess – I did decide when I gave up star-trek.info and the other big sites that I wouldn’t have big screencap galleries anymore. Game Of Thrones UHD is the exception and it’s a temporary one. But still – I want to cap, cap, cap!

These caps are from The Colbys episode 1.14 The Trial.
