    Not much chatter really about it is there? Bad sign.

    Something that's been bothering me: Sam told Steven he can't provide him with an alibi for Matthew's murder because of his shady past. This doesn't make sense when you consider they were schtupping in one of Atlanta's finest hotels. Steven paid the bill with his credit card and there should be surveillance video from the lobby, hall and elevator. Steven's lawyer should have obtained the video and charge receipts and shown it to the police. Case dismissed.

    Maybe Sammy Jo is worried about speaking to the Police because they want him for something else.

    The cameras don't care how Sammy Jo feels. If it proves he was there then he was there.

    There is an explanation: Steven cares how Sammy Jo feels about talking to the police, and therefore he doesn't mention it to his lawyer.

    I still like it. I mean... what else is there on the air right now in this genre?
    So i prefer this than having no family soap at all.
    I'm so sick of superhero- or cop-shows, so there's really nothing else left to watch, thanks to the really inventive US-primetime department. :re:
    I'm scrolling through all those download pages, and there's really NOTHING else interesting at the moment, so i'm kind of grateful for CW's Dynasty.
    Happy for those who like the 27th incarnation of NCIS or CSI or any Marvel/DC-Superhero-Bullshit, i don't.
    So i'm glad that my all time favorite show is on the air again, even if just on the CW with all the limits that naturally come with that.
    Still better than NO show at all!
    And i also hope it gets renewed, because i don't see any other bright light at the boooring, boooring, boooring US-TV coming up anytime soon, they are clearly running out of ideas for ages now with NO change in sight.

    I think they just need to get better at faking the opulence. It just doesn't always look like a show about rich people. It needs more of the glitz, more flowers, blingy things and to never ever EVER film that house like the 80s party. Sally Patrick worked on Revenge she should know how to do that.

    I actually liked #3. It had a lot of character development and some nice, touching moments.
    And those weren't more childish than originals S4 through 8, so i'm okay with that.
    I really like this new Dynasty, and i love how they gave us the new intro (which they didn't have to) and all those little reminders of the original.
    Okay, it's not perfect, but why must we trash it? Let's be honest ... in these times, Generation Twitter and stuff... was there any other way to bring it back?
    I decided that i will fully support nuDynasty from now on, we won't get anything better, people!
    Dynasty's back on the air again folks, we are fans, so let's support it! This Dynasty is better than no Dynasty at all! ;)

    I liked the first two episodes. I thought the third was really really bad. I will hang around and hope it improves but if something is really shit I'm not going to watch.

    Please hang on. Come on, we Dynasty-fans have to stick together! You survived season 7, so how bad could it be? :D

    Season 7 still had Joan Collins, Linda Evans, John Forsythe, Heather Locklear, Gordon Thompson, Nolan Miller and a budget.

    I confess I haven't watched THE CW Dynasty though it is now available on Netflix Australia. But sloppy writing like you've mentioned really irritates me. Over the years we've been spoilt with far too many cop shows to quickly figure out nonsense like you mention. Viewers today are a lot more savvy than what TV Executives/Producers/Writers sometimes gives us credit for.

    Are you kidding me? That horrid intro wasn't ready for the pilot? I'm sorry but that intro is plain awful. Actually it is atrocious and should be pulled. It sounds like it has been created on some kids unwanted Christmas toy. The intro to TNT Dallas wasn't quite up to standard - until corrected by season 3 with the three-way split - but at least it partially honored the original.

    Or the timeless staple, "Everybody Wants To Rule The World," if this show actually possessed the fatalistic beauty to carry that song without the daftness of utter cliche. Hmmph.

    "I changed my name so that some of my... less desirable family members couldn't find me." - said openly.

    Smh.

    Actually, there's tons of better soaps on.

    Queen Sugar is one of the best family dramas ever. Greenleaf is nowhere near as good as QS, but it's head, shoulders, and ankles above nuDynasty. I checked out of Empire long ago, but it's also better.

    The Crown
    Versailles
    Scandal
    This Is Us
    HOC
    Ozark


    Tons of good soapy drama out there. You have options, dear.

    Krystle's skeletons are weak. How is this something Blake couldn't have easily figured out? They should've gone ahead and made her trans. It'd be powerful and subversive, the way "Steven Is Gay" was supposed to be.
