Dynasty was the it show of the eighties full of big hair, shiny jewels, and lots of shoulder pads. It was the one show my sisters and I gathered around the TV set with a box full of cream puffs and a bottle of coke. I wish I could tell you about the plot line, the cat fights, and affairs. However, I was only in grade 2 and my only recollection of Dynasty is this….
Perhaps, it my over active imagination that warned me that the men with the eye patch was evil, the sense of panic when armed troops stormed the royal wedding, or maybe it was the shooting of the whole cast. It was this one short dramatic action packed moment in which I screamed in tears, “They shot them in a church! They are all dead! What will we watch now?”
It was at that young time in my life that I believed if God couldn’t protect the cast of Dynasty at a royal wedding then he couldn’t protect me from storm troopers at Sunday Mass. It was after watching this one episode, I questioned the power of God, and I dreaded going to church.
I would sit on the edge of the church pew with the knowledge that troopers could crash through the church’s stained glass windows at any minute. I knew my only chance for survival would be to dive under the pew and play dead. I only had myself to think and save. I would have to be fast!
It was about after a month of Sunday masses my little seven-year old mind, finally learned the difference between fantasy and reality. Luckily, storm troopers never invaded my church but it did add more excitement to my Sunday morning.
Do you have any vivid memories of TV shows from the past?
