    I've been on Grey's, Revenge and Desperate Housewives out of nighttime soaps. I tried hard to get on MP. Never bothered for 90210 as they wanted all high schoolers. But MP wanted mostly people for clubs/parties and such. Boy, the stories I heard from others who got on that one and how long filming took! Grey's was the best of the bunch! Best show to work on :) Desperate Housewives I was so lucky to have gotten on it in the end and Eva featured me with her! I know some on here were on Dallas on TNT :) I wonder if there's anyone on here that's been on Dynasty on CW?

    If the Pollocks were still alive today, how do you think they would have written this episode?

    Don't like the actor either for him. Rest of cast is ok...Cristal was better in 2nd ep.

    Time flies when watching Dynasty. I almost forgot to smoke.

    Just in case anyone had forgotten about the black & white ball. Personally I thought it was self-explanatory.
    I could do without the recurring "Alexis" references as it may spoil the effect when she does show up.
    "Oh, hi, we were just talking about you!"

    I'm not sure if we're supposed to take those comments seriously? But if it continues, someone is going to end up in Ignore Land.
    Not nude enough.
    "That must have been really hard, when you learned he chose brain-damage over damaged goods".
    I think their one-on-one scenes are better than the family scenes, because everyone has to ignore how brutal she is, and then - as @Michael Torrance pointed out - her dialogue that matters gets lost.
    The father-daughter relationship is not very exciting, but I like the way he gets annoyed every time someone mentions Jeff Colby.
    "Get out of my house!" always works for me:D
    Gosh, I hadn't even noticed it. But the house is so huge I wouldn't be surprised if it had six front doors.

    Favourite scene: when Cristal fired Willy, as a way to show her loyalty to Blake and the company, and of course "You bitch! You're gonna wish you buried me!"
    Cristal has good chemistry with the other characters, especially Sammy Jo.

    Every week a new Dynasty episode, it feels like the good old days:dance:

    That was my concern when I viewed the first trailer for the CW Dynasty. A cat fight already? The first fight on original Dynasty between Alexis and Krystal was far more enjoyable because, as you mention, the tension had been simmering all season.

    I don't get why the writers feel they have to rush these things. Is our attention span so short? It's the biggest difference between today's soap and those of yesteryear. We all knew a major cliffhanger was inevitable but half the fun was the journey getting there.

    Even Empire, which moved at breakneck speed, waited until the first season finale before Cookie and Anika finally traded blows.

    Another thing I noticed is that they chose not to include the bannisters of the stairs below the stairs that we saw in the pilot too. The location shooting in this episode was pretty impressive though. That scene where Blake summons Cristal to the house as she walks in the vast gardens looked really lush.

    Yes, it's generation Twitter. You have 140 letters/characters to tell something and after 3 minutes it's forgotten. That's the world we're living in now. ;)

    After reading the E! interview with showrunner Sallie Patrick I now get the pushing Fallon in a grave scene. It was made to be a Meme! Fair enough...

    Damn America and it's 2 second attention span!

    I really enjoyed episode 2, it flowed along quite nicely and I love the actress who plays Fallon. I think she is perfect for the role.

    Also I the 'camp' humour is played in the right way, there are characters that ground it. So Fallons one liners are not taken overly serious by the other characters which levels it out.

    I thought the scene where Fallon said "what's up your arse" was played really well, made me giggle when Sammy Joe walked in. :)

    It's just fun and it feels like it's having fun. My issue with Dallas TNT was how it took itself too seriously but new Dynasty has a nice balance.

    I hope it sticks around so I can see the return of Matthew in season 8. :)

    They should have all of the wind turbine picked out of him by then.

    It was the first thing I thought of (because of their scene the night before) so when Sammy Jo walked in, the joke came a little too late.

    I liked the reference to the classic breakfast scene, because it was frowned upon that OldSammy Jo had the nerve (!) to touch the food.
    They serve the food and then you're supposed to say: "just coffee, I'm not hungry/late for work". But OldSammy Jo was hungry and she didn't have a job.

    And Steven even said it: "Let me know when the rest of the family visits, I'll inform the kitchen".
    So, he doesn't notice a few thousand dollars missing from his pocket, but he's worried about some extra croissants?
    They just kind of let her rant on, but then this Blake is not so uptight as OldBlake so I guess she can get away with everything.
    I think I'll stick with the physical fights.

    I enjoyed it, it has an original Dynasty vibe about it. I also didn't mind Fallon the grave. A tribute to Ab Fab perhaps :) I thought it worked because they didn't show the grave until after she went flying.

    I would so love to see Dallas done as a reboot now.
