I am really struggling here to understand the point of a re-imagining of DYNASTY. Why not just make a new show on a similar theme. Especially if you are going to start changing so much about it. The one thing DYANSTY really had going for it was it's casting. Who can ever step into Alexis' shoes or Fallon's or Krystle's or Sammy Jo's. There is no way in hell that a show on the CW is going to be able to get such perfect casting. They should have just made it a loose continuation, with very similar recurring plot elements to the original show. That way they could have had Joan and Linda in recurring roles and avoided comparisons to the original iconic DYNASTY cast. I haven't read much about it to be fair but what I have read doesn't appeal to me. Having DYNASTY back wont work without Joan Collins as Alexis. Anyone else in that role is going to come off as a bad parody in my opinion.
