Discussion in 'Dynasty 2017' started by Emelee, Aug 17, 2018.
She seems just the type to want to go to a bank for Daddy sperm to have designer babies.
Sadly, no Emmy win, despite the string of nominations. For NYPD Blue the only thing she won was a SAG award, and even that was for an ensemble cast. She won an obscure Best Actress award for something else. Still, not bad.
Laura is described as “Liam’s well-bred, erudite mother who is so overpowering and manipulative that she puts Fallon’s mother, Alexis, to shame.”
And yet the actress is slotted for just one episode. That's one hell of a performance Sharon will give. What's with Peach Dynasty and creating women characters with balls? I'd like to see 3 dimensional characters thank you, not a character ripped straight from daytime soap.
I agree. I understand the need to use the character names from original Dynasty but why not create a new story altogether. Keeping some distance from original Dynasty may work wonders for Peach Dynasty. Or are they afraid this reincarnation can not stand on its own 2 feet?
Is it not different enough?
I like to think "I know what this is!", only to be surprised by an alternative twist.
@Rove I think it's probably not just that they might be afraid that this incarnation can't stand on its own. I think all of the changes they're making now is possibly a response to all of the backlash they received back in season 1 and they are hoping that these changes will allow the general audience to be more receptive towards the show. But methinks it's going to backfire.
Also, why are the writers wasting someone like Laura Van Kirk for only one episode? She needs to be a constant source of conflict for Liam and Fallon!
I wonder what happened to Alexis...nobody talks about her anymore.
Because this time around it's Cristal who is making her grand entrance in the second season - upstaging Alexis.
Yeah sure. Cristal is not going to upstage Alexis of all people, especially if it turns out that the current actress ends up becoming much worse than the last one. I still think this "Tale Of Two Cristals" storyline is going to blow up badly in the writers' faces. The CW must be so desperate for them to have to hire a telenovela actress of all people! And I still think this whole Liam/Fallon romance is going to become so lame too but their fans won't care because oh gosh darnit Liam is so wonderful and awesome and perfect! And I also can't wait for Michael to be terrorized by psycho Kirby. You know that he's going to get saddled with her because the writers can't think up of anything else for Michael to do especially since they've destroyed any and all potential he could've had as a character.
It's a nice twist, isn't it? Cristal's gone - hurray! - oops, there's another one!
They are nowhere close to writing the entire season of episodes, much less producing them. Perhaps it's "one episode---so far".
Perhaps Nicollette Sheridan didn't have THE impact the producers had hoped for. I know it's early days but first impressions really count with me and Nicollette is missing the nuances Joan Collins had in spades from her first appearance.
That's because she's playing a different Alexis.
But what I meant to say was that everybody already know what's going to happen in season 2 and who's going to marry who and why that should or shouldn't happen - and yet, no storyline for Alexis. Or who started the fire, which is still the most important thing to deal with.
Let's hope they keep the best parts hidden from the Evil Internet.
"Hi, I'm the Real Cristal Flores. I grew up in Venezuela, have long, beautiful hair, and learned Eeeenglish from a boooook."
Oh, and did I mention how much I love to set fires?"

Alexis (in disguise) "Hi, I'm Lurlene, Mrs Carrington's hairdresser!"

Kelly Rutherford / "Melissa" seemed like a one episode character at first. Obviously she isn't.
