Time to Resurface!

It's kind of hard to believe it's been almost two years since I've written on my own blog, but there you have it. Writing for TV Fanatic is a full time gig, you know? I am usually trying to think of what I could be providing over there, or coaching people on the content they're creating, etc.

Unfortunately, the way my mind works doesn't always make a great post for TV Fanatic. I know, I know. It's hard to believe there's not a massive audience for idle chit chat about watching Dynasty again after 30 some odd years.

Yet thanks to Amazon Prime, that's exactly what I'm up to lately. See that photo above? That has to be about the second season, when Heather Locklear's Sammy Jo joined, and it's right about where I'm sitting, Dynasty Season 2 Episode 11. Fallon couldn't go through with her abortion.

The topics on this series and the language used have amazed me so far. Times have changed, there is no doubt. A love story between an older man and an older woman, soon flourishing into somewhat of a later middle aged triangle would be a hard sell. But Blake Carrington? He's a dick.

The words out of Blake's mouth early in the series as he talks about his gay son Steven are downright frightening. The word "faggotry" is actually used. No kidding. I wish I could say Blake marrying his secretary, Krystal, wasn't a terrible cliche, but even though she was older, the relationship wasn't helped by the fact Linda Evans was a terrible actress.

Honestly, I could go on and on. And I might as well, right?

But it won't only be about shows like Dynasty, but also my binge watches. I should have thought of it sooner. I watched the entire runs of Louie and Inside Amy Schumer that might have made for some fun times.

Anything past or present we should chat about? Let me know. What else do I do but watch and talk TV?
