Dynasty (1981 TV series)
Dynasty is an American prime time television soap opera that aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989. The series, created by Richard and Esther Shapiro and produced by Aaron Spelling, revolves around the Carringtons, a wealthy family residing in Denver, Colorado. Dynasty stars John Forsythe as oil magnate Blake Carrington, Linda Evans as his new wife Krystle, Joan Collins as his former wife Alexis. Dynasty was conceived by ABC to compete with CBS's prime time series Dallas. Ratings for the show's first season were unimpressive, but a revamp for the second season that included the arrival of Collins as scheming Alexis saw ratings enter the top 20. By the fall of 1982, it was a top 10 show, by the spring of 1985, it was the #1 show in the United States; the series declined in popularity during its final two seasons, it was cancelled in the spring of 1989 after nine seasons and 220 episodes. A two-part miniseries, Dynasty: The Reunion, aired in October 1991. A reboot series with a new cast premiered on The CW in October 2017.
Dynasty was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Drama Series every year from 1981 to 1986, winning in 1983. The series spawned a successful line of fashion and luxury products, a spin-off series called The Colbys. Other notable cast members included Pamela Sue Martin, Lloyd Bochner, Heather Locklear, Catherine Oxenberg, Michael Nader, Diahann Carroll, Emma Samms, Rock Hudson, Kate O'Mara and Stephanie Beacham. Aaron Spelling well known for his successful ABC series, including Starsky and Hutch, Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Vega$ and Hart to Hart, took on Richard and Esther Shapiro's vision of a rich and powerful family who "lived and sinned" in a 48-room Denver mansion. Esther Shapiro said that an inspiration for the show was I, Claudius, a fictionalized depiction of the Julio-Claudian dynasty of Roman emperors. Shapiro said in 1985, "We wanted to do something that would be an American fantasy. We thought. We wanted a strong, nineteenth-century sort of family where people were in conflict but loved each other in spite of everything."Intended by ABC to be a competitor for CBS's Dallas, the working title for Dynasty was Oil.
In early drafts of the pilot script, the two main families featured in the series were known as the Parkhursts and Corbys. George Peppard was cast as series patriarch Blake Carrington, but had difficulties dealing with the somewhat unsympathetic role, was replaced with John Forsythe. Filmed in 1980, the pilot was among many delayed due to a strike precipitated by animosity between the television networks and the partnership of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. Dynasty premiered on ABC as a three-hour event on January 12, 1981. During its run, Dynasty explored issues like rape and racial integration, put middle-aged women in the forefront. Acknowledging that the show is, however entertaining, producer Douglas S. Cramer said, "We walk a fine line, just this side of camp. Careful calculations are made. We sense that while it might be wonderful for Krystle and Alexis to have a catfight in a koi pond, it would be inappropriate for Joan to smack Linda with a koi."
As Dynasty begins on January 12, 1981, powerful oil tycoon Blake Carrington is about to marry the younger Krystle Jennings, his former secretary. Beautiful and new to Blake's world, Krystle finds a hostile reception in the Carrington household — the staff patronizes her, Blake's headstrong and promiscuous daughter Fallon resents her. Though devoted to Krystle, Blake himself is too preoccupied with his company, Denver-Carrington, blind to Krystle's predicament, her only ally is her stepson Steven, whose complicated relationship with Blake stems from their fundamental political differences and Steven's resistance to step into his role as future leader of the Carrington empire. Meanwhile, better suited to follow in Blake's footsteps, is underestimated by and considered little more than a trophy to her father, she channels her energies into toying with various male suitors, including the Carrington chauffeur Michael Culhane. At the end of the three-hour premiere episode "Oil", Steven confronts his father, criticizing Blake's capitalistic values and amoral business practices.
Blake explodes, revealing the secret of which Steven thought his father was unaware: Blake is disgusted by Steven's homosexuality, his refusal to "conform" sets father and son at odds for some time. In counterpoint to the Carringtons are the Blaisdels. Returning from an extended assignment in the Middle East, Matthew quits and goes into business with wildcatter Walter Lankershim, as Blake's behavior begins pushing Krystle toward Matthew, the men are set as both business and romantic rivals. Blake is further enraged when Steven goes to work for longtime friend Matthew, in whom Steven sees qualities lacking in Blake. Though in a relationship with another man, Steven finds himself drawn to Claudia, putting her life back together after spending time in a psychiatric hospital. Esther Shapiro said in the DVD commentary of the first season, "The audience told us immediately: All they wanted to do was be in the mansion. Couldn't care less about the oil fields, they didn't want to see grubby rooms."Fallon makes a secret business deal with Blake's old frie

Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating counter-clockwise around a track. Roller derby is played by 1,250 amateur leagues worldwide inside the United States. Game play consists of a series of short match-ups; the jammer scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to hinder the opposing jammer while assisting their own jammer—in effect, playing both offense and defense simultaneously. While the sport has its origins in the banked-track roller-skating marathons of the 1930s, Leo Seltzer and Damon Runyon are credited with evolving the sport to its competitive form. Professional roller derby became popular. In the ensuing decades, however, it predominantly became a form of sports entertainment, where theatrical elements overshadowed athleticism. Gratuitous showmanship ended with the sport's grassroots revival in the first decade of the 21st century. Although roller derby retains some sports entertainment qualities such as player pseudonyms and colorful uniforms, it has abandoned scripted bouts with predetermined winners.
Modern roller derby is an international sport played by amateurs. Most teams are all-female teams, but there is a growing number of male and junior roller derby teams, it was under consideration as a roller sport for the 2020 Summer Olympics. FIRS, recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the official international governing body of roller sports, released its first set of Roller Derby Rules for the World Roller Games that took place September 2017 in Nanjing, China. Most modern leagues share a strong "do-it-yourself" ethic that combines athleticism with the styles of punk and camp; as of 2018, the Women's Flat Track Derby Association had 423 full member leagues and 46 apprentice leagues. Contemporary roller derby has a basic set of rules, with variations reflecting the interests of a governing body's member leagues; the summary below is based on the rules of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. In March 2010, Derby News Network claimed that more than 98% of roller derby competitions were conducted under WFTDA rules.
For example, members of the United Kingdom Roller Derby Association are required to play by WFTDA rules, while members of the former Canadian Women's Roller Derby Association were encouraged to join the WFTDA. Roller derby is played in two periods of 30 minutes. Two teams of up to 15 players each field up to five members for episodes called "jams." Jams last two minutes. Each team designates a scoring player. One blocker can be designated as a "pivot"—a blocker, allowed to become a jammer in the course of play; the next jam may involve different players of the 15 roster players, different selections for jammer and pivot. During each jam, players skate counterclockwise on a circuit track. Points are scored only by a team's jammer. After breaking through the pack and skating one lap to begin another "trip" through the pack, the jammer scores one point for passing any opposing blocker; the rules describe an "earned" pass. The jammer's first earned pass scores a point for passing that blocker and a point for each opponent blocker not on the track.
If the jammer passes the entire pack, it is a four-point scoring trip called a "grand slam."Each team's blockers use body contact, changing positions, other tactics to help their jammer score while hindering the opposing team's jammer. Play begins by blockers lining up on the track anywhere between the "jammer line" and the "pivot line" 30 feet in front; the jammers start behind the jammer line. Jams begin on a single short whistle blast, upon which both jammers and blockers may begin engaging immediately; the pack is the largest single group of blockers containing members of both teams skating in proximity, arranged such that each player is within 10 feet of the next. Blockers must maintain the pack, but can skate within 20 feet behind and ahead of it, an area known as the "engagement zone."The first jammer to break through the pack earns the status of "lead jammer." A designated referee blows the whistle twice, skates near, points at, the lead jammer. Once earned, lead jammer status cannot be transferred to other skaters, but certain actions can cause it to be lost.
The lead jammer can stop the jam at any time by placing both hands on their hips. If the jam is not stopped early, it ends after two minutes. If time remains in the period, teams have 30 seconds to get on the track and line up for the next jam. If the period expires, it does not halt a jam, underway. A skater may block an opponent to force them out of bounds; the blocker must be upright, skating counterclockwise, in bounds, within the engagement zone. Blocking with hands, elbows and feet is prohibited, as is contact above the shoulders or below mid-thigh, blocking from behind. Referees penalize rules violations. A player receiving a penalty is removed from play to sit in a penalty box for 30 seconds of jam time. If the jam ends during this interval, the player remains in the penalty box during the subsequent jam until the interval ends; the penalized player's team plays short-handed, as in ice hockey. However, the "power jam", derived from hockey's "power play", does not cover any short-handed situation but only the case where the jammer is penal
Freddy's Nightmares – A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series is an American horror anthology series, which aired in syndication from October 1988 until March 1990. A spin-off from the Nightmare on Elm Street series, each story was introduced by Freddy Krueger; the pilot episode was directed by Tobe Hooper, begins with Freddy Krueger's prosecution on child-murdering charges ending in a mistrial due to the discovery that his arresting officer did not read Freddy his Miranda rights. A mob of parents corners Freddy in a boiler room, leading to him being torched by the police officer and gaining his familiar visage; the series was produced by New Line Television, producers of the film series, Stone Television. It was distributed by Lorimar-Telepictures. Afterwards, Warner Bros. Television would assume syndication rights after acquiring Lorimar-Telepictures in 1989. On October 2, 2015, the El Rey Network announced that it would begin airing the series toward the end of the year, on November 3, 2015, the series began airing on the network.
Due to the murderous basis of Freddy Krueger, New Line Cinema opted to not develop a television series with a regular batch of characters to mix it up with Krueger on a continuous basis. Instead the producers created an anthology series, employing a new crop of actors to be used for each episode; each week Freddy's Nightmares told a different story of a dark rooted and/or grim nature that took place in the fictitious town of Springwood, in particular, on Elm Street. Though the Freddy Krueger character would play a part in the plot, most of the stories did not involve him. Krueger's primary function was to host the series, he was featured in regular bumper segments, where he would offer an ominous or slapstick reaction to the happenings of the episode—culminating in him giving a quick, eerie, epilogue at the end. One element that makes the series unique is its two-tier story approach. Most of the episodes feature two different stories that each take up the second halves; every second story, however built on a character who played a minor role in the first.
Due to budget restraints, the producers of the series were forced to use unknown actors, rather than some of the stars associated with the theatrical franchise. The only actor from the film series retained for the TV series was Robert Englund, as Freddy Krueger; some of the featured actors who went on to become notable were: Other notable guest stars featured in the series were: With the exception of the pilot, all of the episodes carried two separate storylines. The first half hour would be devoted to one story, while the last half hour would be devoted to a second storyline. In the USA, five VHS tapes were released by Warner Home Video in September 1991; each tape featured one episode. The episodes released were: "No More, Mr. Nice Guy" "Lucky Stiff" "It's My Party and You'll Die If I Want You To" "Dreams That Kill" "Freddy's Tricks and Treats"In the UK, eight VHS tapes were released by Braveworld Ltd. in 1993. Each tape features two episodes; the tapes released were: The Nightmare Begins Again: "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and "Killer Instinct" Freddy's Nightmares 2: "Sister's Keeper" and "Freddy's Tricks and Treats" Rock My Freddy: "Judy Miller, Come on Down" and "The Bride Wore Red" Saturday Nightmare Fever: "The End Of The World" and "Saturday Night Special" Do Dreams Bleed?: "Do Dreams Bleed" and "Rebel Without a Car" Freddy's Mother's Day: Mother's Day" and "Black Tickets" Safe Sex: "Safe Sex" and "Deadline" It's a Miserable Life: "It's a Miserable Life" and "Love Stinks" In 2003, Volume 1 was released on Region 2 DVD in Ireland and the UK, by Warner Home Video.
Volume 2 and Volume 3 was planned to be released in future years to come, Warner canceled the releases due to poor sales. In 2011, a Blu-ray collection of the original seven A Nightmare on Elm Street films was released in the US; the set included a DVD with special features. The series aired in syndication across the United States; this was a source of some controversy as the program aired around 5pm in some conservative markets. This prompted some viewers to criticize the series as'satanic' and'filth'; the controversy was explored in the Nightmare On Elm Street series direct-to-DVD documentary Never Sleep Again in 2010. The violent and sexual content of the series meant that episodes were edited before airing. An example of this is the series finale Safe Sex, which had 8 minutes of its more explicit footage deleted; these outtakes are available to view in full as extras on the Blu-ray of Never Sleep Again. In 2006, AOL teamed up with distributor Warner Bros. Television to bring Freddy's Nightmares to its new In2TV broadband service.
NBC Universal's horror and suspense-themed cable channel Chiller aired Freddy's Nightmares with marathons once a month. Season one and two were shown one after another, with commercial breaks, the channel ended the run on March 31, 2011. In the UK, Sky and Virgin Media customers could watch the entire first series, one episode per night, at 8pm on Zone Horror, starting Monday, 8 June 2009.
