    What do you think of this as an idea?

    It seems almost too perfect to me... She even rocks the cut off denim look that her mother made famous on DYNASTY.

    100% approval rating from me. Although Cristal is going to be Hispanic... then again, Sammy Jo's father could be white, thus making her only half Hispanic, with the genetic quirk of inheriting her father's blond hair and blue eyes. As long as they lampshade this on the show it should be alright. lol

    Well, there's also the chance Ava won't be cast as Sammy Jo. Although... isn't Heather Locklear half Native American? Taking that into account...

    I was talking about making Cristal Hispanic. But really the new Sammy Jo could be adopted or anything...

    ...Adopted. Yes. *slaps forehead* Why didn't I think of that? That would be so much simpler.

    Oh gosh, now I'm imagining Ava as Sammy Jo and Alexis Bledel as Fallon, and they're re-enacting the scene where SJ tells Fallon of her "true" parentage...

    Another possibility. I did think about her playing Lindsay... except I like better the idea of Ava playing her mother's first role.

    Simple? We already start with complicated scenarios just to avoid the Latin connections, and that's just the beginning!
    Crystal Cristal oh what's her name cannot be Hispanic! We MUST stop them!

    I vote Catherine Oxenberg play Krystle. She's got the same angelic blonde glow that Linda Evans had. Plus her English accent isn't as heavy as it used to be. And she's still plenty beautiful. Only problem is she's way too old at 55. So that would rule her out, sadly...

    Then there's 39-year-old Liv Tyler, who looks like she could be Linda Evans' twin in this photo:

    I think the most important thing is that we're going to love the new Krystle. Because if we don't, then everything else will fail too.
    Will they be able to find someone with the "Linda Evans" quality? I think it will be the key to the succes of the new Dynasty.
    I'm still very excited, but also a little frightenend...

    According to the rumors I've heard about the direction they're taking with Sammy Jo, which I'm not allowed to share - I know, I'm such a horrible tease - Locklear's daughter would not be right for the part. But then again, it's work in progress, so - who knows?

    Something as simple as making Krystle (Cristal - still cant believe this name is real, it's like when Alexis calls Krystle Kristen only not as funny) not blonde, not the good fairy, not the fair haired beauty just rocks the apple cart from the beginning. The chemistry is off. It means an Alexis if one is even brought on the show can not look how Alexis should look. We cant really have two raven haired beauties duking it out. How would America know who was who?

    They will never find that Linda Evans quality nor that Joan Collins quality, or Heather Locklear, or Pamela Sue Martin or Pamela Bellwood or...

    Yea... you get my drift. Prepare for a HOT MESS.

    As always it depends on the execution, but I liked the idea I heard. It's bold and very 2010s. It just ain't your mama's Dynasty.

    I absolutely understand what you mean. But on the other hand, I think it's the only way to do a reboot. It has to be radically different from the original. Because they will never be able to replicate that Dynasty. They have to make it their own. And then - as with any other show - either it works or it doesn't. Either they hit jackpot with cast chemistry or they don't.

    If she's a transgendered lesbian I cant even deal right now. I will cut myself or/and others.

    Which makes you think why bother to make it Dynasty? It has no ties to the original show. They are not going to use original cast, no FilOli, reinvent all the original characters? Changing backstories and what not. How exactly is it Dynasty? Why isn't it just brand new soap about rich people? Dynasty wasn't the only primetime soap, it wasn't the first it wont be the last. I don't see how it's Dynasty except in name only? Why bother? Why not save money and just write something similar but with a different name? The name and brand doesn't exactly mean anything to anyone watching THE CW anyway. The whole thing is too bizarre.

    But we don't know yet how different it's going to be.
