    That is so very true, but I still don't think it fits.

    Well! This is really not a very good start of your The Colbys watch.

    Oh, on the contrary. I'm loving the show, just not crazy about the title they chose.

    I can keep the two separate in my mind.

    Wow, and here I thought I was being too ticky in wishing The Colbys had used a different font for their opening/closing credits.

    The closing credits are very different from Dynasty, or any other soap for that matter.

    They reminded me of the opening credits for Peyton Place.

    Come on, people. The Colbys was just a Zirconium knockoff of Dynasty. It was never its own show and should have retained the “II” title....it may have kept the viewer’s attention....

    I think this font would be just perfect, fitting with the Bill Conti theme that plagiarized John Williams´ one for "Superman"...

    Most of DYNASTY was a zirconium knockoff of DYNASTY. At least THE COLBYS was a real stone, however precious is a matter of opinion. But it was doing better work during 1985-1987 than its parent series.
