> Description 
The Colbys (originally titled Dynasty II: The Colbys) was a primetime television soap opera which aired from November 1985 to March 1987. This Aaron Spelling-produced series was spun off from the more successful Dynasty.

The series was set in California, and focused on the Colby family, introduced peripherally in Dynasty. Intended to surpass its predecessor in opulence, the series' producers were handed an immensely high budget, and cast a handful of film actors among its leads, including Charlton Heston, Katharine Ross and Barbara Stanwyck.

The major storyline that drove the series was the migration from Denver (and Dynasty) of Jeff Colby and Fallon Carrington. Jeff was Jason Colby's nephew, who came to California to start his life anew after the apparent death of his wife, Fallon.

Fallon, having survived the plane crash which supposedly claimed her life, in fact was suffering amnesia and found her way to California, and Jeff's cousin (and rival) Miles Colby. Using the name Randall Adams, she married her ex-husband's cousin, setting in motion a love triangle that spanned the series. Although Fallon eventually re-married Jeff, Miles held a torch for her.

In the early episodes, there were a number of cross-overs featuring members of the Dynasty cast, notably Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) and his son Adam Carrington (Gordon Thomson). Alexis Colby did not appear in the series (actress Joan Collins led a "boycott" of the spin-off show), even at the re-marriage of her daughter Fallon, and son-in-law (and nephew by marriage) Jeff Colby.
