Dynasty Season One (2017) DVD Review
Dynasty begins with heiress Fallon Carrington unhappy to find her billionaire father Blake engaged to Cristal, a rival employee at the family company. When Fallon’s machinations to separate the couple backfire and cost her a promotion, she allies with Blake’s nemesis and former employee, Jeff Colby, and strikes out on her own. Meanwhile, the arrival of Cristal’s opportunistic nephew Sam—who becomes romantically involved with Fallon’s wayward brother Steven—threatens to expose her shady past. The Carringtons form a united front in the wake of the suspicious death of Cristal’s former lover, but things at the mansion do not remain harmonious for long. Later, Blake’s ex-wife Alexis, Steven and Fallon’s mother, returns to Atlanta with an agenda.

I thought this new version of ‘Dynasty’ wouldn’t be as good, glad I was wrong. I find this new version of ‘Dynasty’ a very well written, directed re-boot of the original, and also a very well casted show too. I really hope that this Dynasty has appealed to an audience so that it can stay on TV for quite some time. Please don’t get me wrong, the original ‘Dynasty’ could never be replaced, but this new ‘Dynasty’ is a fresh and a new TV show that is somewhat close, but not too close to the original.
Reboots and especially pilot episodes always have the difficulty with introducing all the characters and story lines, but ‘Dynasty’ did really impress me from the start. I did not know what to expect first but it is really funny, dramatic, lots of sassy lines and great suspense especially at the end. The storyline in the pilot went very fast from the introduction of Crystal to the wedding, but that was just the beginning of so many story lines. Fallon competing against her father and working together with the Colby’s, an upcoming love triangle between Fallon, Culhane and Colby
Movie Content: 9/10
The Final Word
This was such a great season and show that I’d recommend it to all. It might not be your cup of tea but every adult should try at least the first two episodes to see how it compares to the original series and how this new series tries to be it’s own identity.
Overall Rating: 9/10
