At work I share the responsibility of interviewing job applicants. During some interviews I'll get a sense of something that I can't pinpoint that will give me cause for concern - something is "a bit off". I've described this to my co-workers as similar to having a grain of sand in my shoe. I bring this up after watching a Youtube video about one of my favorite movies: Rebecca (a movie that I consider required viewing for fans of Dynasty - or fans of great film). Toward the end of the video, the reviewer, Dominic Noble, says "a story that frustrates you as much as it entertains you does tend to stay in you memory more effectively". I think Noble hit the nail on the head when it comes to my (and many other people's) fascination with Dynasty; it's a show that is undeniably entertaining (even when it's at its worst) and can be very frustrating. That frustration comes from watching something that starts off so well and shows so much potential before going off the rails. Then, miraculously, is set back on track at the end before abruptly being cancelled. The fact that The Reunion is absolute rubbish seems fitting; of course Dynasty can't have a tidy ending thus providing fans a sense of closure. It must end unsatisfactorily so it can linger in our minds. We all can think of much better ways to end it. Or not end it. Some of us imagine what the Carringtons and Colbys are up to thirty years later. I've bid adieu to the residents of Knots Landing knowing that they are back safely living on Seaview Circle. I know that the Desperate Housewives are living more or less "happily ever after" after moving away from Fairview. But without a truly satisfying resolution to Dynasty I regularly think of my old friends Krystle, Fallon and Sable and wonder how they're doing.
