Yesterday I watched the Pilot again. It was a coincidence that it happened almost 40 years after the start of shooting with actors. According to my notes, The Pilot was shot from April 14th to May 8th 1980 (with George Peppard) and from October 27th to November 13th 1980 (with John Forsythe). Of course, I watched it many times before but I was nicely surprised how much I was thrilled. Three parts format seems to be still monumental, but a little impractical. (It took me two weeks to have enough time to watch the show as a whole.) For the first and last time we got a plenty of exterior shots, a lot of hired actors, a lot of food and a lot of (political) irony in dialogues – and American flag on the mansion and the opening gate with BC initials. I am not able to see The Pilot without having the following seasons of Dynasty on my mind. And it only supports my impression from what I saw (although I know that the majority of the first season is not as good as this and although I am a big fan of seasons 5, 2 and 3). I would say that the first season is really experimental (as Ester Shapiro said in a bonus on DVD) and The Pilot was a sort of an experiment inside the experiment. (An expensive experiment, Aarong Spelling would add.) This time I concentrated on details in dialogues. And I was surprised that I discovered a lot of new or forgotten things. Let me share the results. The things, facts, details which I remembered: The very same reverend from the first wedding of Blake and Krystle again appeared at the wedding of Alexis and Cecil in season 3 (and again in season 8). Blake has wealth of 200 million of dollars and owns a football team - according to friends of Krystle. Matthew is saying the sentences later used for a recording in season 4 (during a dialogue with Claudia in a bistro). Matthew spent a year and half in the Middle East. Claudia was in a sanatorium named River Haven and was released a month ago. She visits a doctor three times a week. Krystle admits that horses do not like her. It is mentioned for the first time that Krystle was born in Dayton, Ohio. (Lindsay reads this information in the news.) Lindsay thinks over about being a vegetarian. Jeanette and Hilda are not here among servants. They joined the show in The Honeymoon episode, just after The Pilot. Jeff mentioned (twice) a second wedding of his mother. A funny conversation between Steven and Jeff about president Roosevelt. Was he a president of Bulgaria or Czechoslovakia? (Later, there was another remark about my country when Fallon mentioned tennis champion Ivan Lendl in Mark episode. Lendl was still a Czechoslovakian citizen in 1982.) Blake offered 320 thousand of dollars and 2 % from future profit in an exchange for Walter´s leases. It is mentioned (at least twice) that a mother of Steven and Fallon LEFT. The things, facts, details which I forgot, never realized: Blake owns 70 % of Denver Carrington. Blake has the biggest house / the mansion in all Colorado – according to friends of Krystle. Steven left he university two years ago. Steven was crying at the end of a dialogue with Blake about homosexuality (well, one spot in one eye). There are small white statues in Denver Carrington which later appeared many times, including in a flat of Jeff in season 8 (and Fallon criticized them as an example of bad taste of Sammy Jo). Lindsay has a small TV-set in a room of her. Matthew lost 30 thousand of dollars because of the last business with Walter. Krystle told Blake that her father had died in the past (during a “flip-coin” conversation in the plane). There is Bunky Jones (a friend of Linda Evans) among girls preparing Krystle for the wedding. At least, I would say it is her (she is not credited in the closing titles). Bunky Jones later appeared as a nurse in season 3, Julia from Denver Carrington in season 4, a (probably rich) friend of Krystle in season 5 and a nurse in California in season 7. Fallon changed hair-style radically during a conversation with Steven and Blake (dinner at a long table, later used for the opening credit of Al Corley). The change was a result of mix of shots from spring and autumn. Fallon remembers Jeff from summer camp when she was 11. (Later, they claimed that Jeff and Fallon had known each other from the very early years.) Blake refused to answer a direct question whether he is responsible for a sabotage on a Walter´s rig. The last shot was on Krystle, not on Blake and Krystle as I remembered.
