* FollowTheLeader: Deconstructed: while clearly inspired by Dallas (and Alexis clearly being their attempt to create a JR-type character) the show did managed to find it's niche with strong female characters and featuring a gay main character. Ironically, as Dynasty leapfrogged over Dallas in the ratings, Dallas (having lost it's main show runner) tried to ape Dynasty with an Alexis-type villain and casting Donna Reed as the new Sue Ellen.

** Fallon being [[spoiler: abducted by a FLYING SAUCER in the desert]] in the final episode of the Colbys has to be a close second.

* TheOtherDarrin: All the Carrington children were eventually re-cast.
** Al Corley left after the second season after taking issue with the network's decree that Steven's homosexuality be downplayed, and the part was re-cast the following season with Jack Coleman (after the character was in an oil rig explosion and required plastic surgery, explaining his new face).
** Pamela Sue Martin left after the fourth season, with Emma Samms assuming the role of Fallon the following year. Samms also played Fallon on the Dynasty spinoff, The Colby's.
** Catherine Oxenberg, who joined as Amanda in the fifth season, left after the sixth season, with Karen Cellini taking over for her the next year. This re-casting was not accepted with audiences and the Amanda character was dropped after 13 episodes in season 7, never to be seen again.
** Gordon Thomson joined the cast as Adam in season 3 and remained with the show until the end. However, he was unavailable for the reunion movie two years later, and Robin Sachs replaced him. Joan Collins has said that she felt Sachs was miscast, and felt very sorry Gordon couldn't return.
** In a rare reversal, Jack Coleman was not available to do the reunion movie either, and the role was re-assumed by Al Corley (even more ironic considering Steven had been the only child to have his "new" appearance explained in-universe).
* TheOtherMarty: George Peppard played Blake Carrington but he was hard to work with and replaced by John Forsythe a few weeks into shooting the pilot.



* TheRedStapler: "Krystle" (in a myriad of invented spellings) and "Alexis" became popular girls' names in the 80's.

Added DiffLines:

* LongestPregnancyEver: [[spoiler: Kirby fell pregnant after being raped by Adam in the middle of the third season but didn't lose the baby until the middle of the fourth season, well over a year after the rape had occurred in real time. This was due in part to the fourth season (and Kirby's pregnancy) picking up right where the third season left off, despite the five month gap in between episodes]].

* EvilBrit: Alexis - played of course by actual Brit, JoanCollins, whose cut-glass accent certainly enhances the character's EvilIsSexy vibe.
