    I was wondering if anybody would watch dynasty with the remaining original cast?Obviously there would be no John Forsyth but I can see Joan Collins and Linda Evans fighting over control over the estate and who heads the family and fighting over the memory of Blake.

    Yes, although I'm watching nuDYNASTY (I missed the last episode) just for the heck of it.

    But a continuation with the original cast would have to avoid the mistakes of nuDALLAS -- and who knows if they would?

    I would watch it out of curiosity but I don't think it'd be a good idea. I'm not a huge fan of continuations on TV. I find that they are usually a shadow of the original show. It's like when an iconic character returns to a soap after being absent for a few years. It's often like they're playing a parody version of themselves and it's never as good as it was the first time around.

    As if I'd really have a choice.

    So, yes, of course! (and hoping it would be as great as TNT Dallas)

    Well, it would have as many evil South American characters that do evil things, that's for sure.

    No, I'd be too scared that they would drop dead at any given minute.

    Absolutely. It would have a ghoulish appeal - watching all those superannuated celebs tottering around.

    Yes. The continuation of Dynasty is the show the world is yearning for but doesn't quite know it. SMH.

    All of those in spades on ABC back in the day (and a better title sequence to boot)!

    Yes, yes, yes, yes and YES! I would! Not a fan of continuations normally but NuDynasty is a mess so far, I'd much rather see the original cast! Heck misogynist, conservative Jeff Colby from the original series is more preferable than Nu!Jeff who just pouts that weird, creepy pout of his every. damn. episode

    No. And these are just my personal thoughts. In the 80's I really liked Linda Evans. Her beauty and warmth exuded from the small screen. It was Linda that attracted me to watch Dynasty for a short term - until the over the top camp reared its ugly head. But like too many actresses her desire to remain relevant is clearly seen in her changing face. I understand it is her decision to do that but there is something to be said for growing old gracefully.

    I fully agree with Carrie's sentiment here. Sure, there would be the initial curiosity factor but watching dear old Dame Joan and try as she might to remain forever young Linda would just be a turn off for me, no matter how good the writing would be. But I don't discount others wishing to see a continuation of Dynasty with their grand old dames in full flight.
