Dynasty: Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm mostly interested in seeing how much hype we will get over how vastly superior this is to the original and how the new one is so modern and incredible so just pretend the old one never existed. 

 

Then again no one did that with the 90210 and Melrose Place remakes...

 

Of course this will also get the generic praise of "diversity," which, as shown with the media pud-pulling over Riverdale (which is for the most part about white characters and has some of the most aggressive hostility toward black men I've seen on a television show in quite a while), will go a long way. Nothing gets the critics more blissful than trying to show everyone how aware and modern they are. 


I'm sure we'll hear this is all some sort of message to Trump as well...

Since it was brought up. Here is the Claudia meltdown. I was in HS and my friends and I would talk about the soaps the following morning at school. On Thursday morning it was Dynasty talk with chat about the upcoming Knots episode. I remember us LOL at Claudia's complete meltdown and how badly done it was.

 

 

 

 

Liars, Liars, Liars, All of them.....Steven...Liar, Krystal.... Liar....Adam....Liar.....LOL  and why in the hell did she kneel when the fire started instead of freaking opening the door and running out the suite?....LMAO

 

My favorite part of that triple cliffhanger is the moment when Alexis shows Blake the papers that proved she now owned his house, if only because of the one YT subscriber who said, "Did she just whip that out of her vagina?".

Trump was a HUGE Dynasty and Dallas fan. He and Ivana watched both every week. 

 

Trump's become Blake while Ivana ended up as Alexis. Fortunately, Ivana is very good friends with Joan Collins, so at least she learned from the best.

That figures.  Frankly, I'd have been more shocked to learn he was a KNOTS LANDING fan.

 

So...Trump::Blake::Ivana::Alexis::Marla::Krystle?  And IDK where the hell Melania would fit in that equation.  She ain't no Krystle.  That's for sure.

Sammy Jo would be Marla.

 

Melania would be...maybe one of those generic women on The Colbys.

The only other good part is Sammy Jo and Amanda pool scene.  Blake yelling Im going to ....and then choking Alexis was so fake and laughable.

There is absolutely no way in Hell Alexis would not show up at some point. Alexis is almost all people like me on the outside know about Dynasty. It's more likely they're saving her up. But no one can do Joan Collins.

 

I guess I'll read the script tonight or tomorrow since this widespread gmail issue has me too paranoid to do much.

You're probably right.  IMO, it'd make little sense to include her in the new series (at least at the start), but I can't see the producers resisting the idea.  Especially if the new series doesn't do well in the ratings.  So, it isn't so much a question of IF Alexis would be included, but WHEN, and with which washed-up TV veteran playing her.  (My money, believe it or not, is on Shannen Doherty.  Provided, of course, she beats the cancer.)

The best part about that is that you can clearly see that they used Joan Collins' stunt double in the scene where Blake runs to attack her. Apparently things were at their worst between Joan / John so she refused to do that scene because she was "afraid" (ya, right)

When a close up of Joan is shown you can tell that's not John choking her and vice versa....LOL.

Eric for sure. He's the gentlest Trump. Donald Jr. is definitely Adam, the one struggling for father's approval.

There was only one woman on THE COLBYS that could potentially be described as generic, and that's Bliss. Melania is Bliss.

And she was horrible and lasted very little on the show....
