Dynasty: Season 1 (2017 - 2018)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

Critic Reviews for Dynasty Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (22)

Dynasty needs to be a little bigger. A little broader. A little more off the wall.

Top Critic

The script strains to make it all relevant, referencing other current dynasties including the Kardashians and the Trumps, but the whole enterprise nonetheless feels dated.

Oct 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The single biggest shocker about this Dynasty is that it's not bad.

Top Critic

The trying-too-hard Dynasty reboot on The CW [is] a show that just doesn't deliver the sleazy charm of the original.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

... there's certainly no point in twitting Dynasty for over-doing it -- when that's all it's ever done.

Top Critic

The new Dynasty is ridiculous, but it isn't plausible. It failed the first rule of drama - I didn't believe it.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a fun, trashy nighttime soap with politics that (probably) won't make you cringe, Dynasty fits the bill.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[Josh] Schwartz, [Stephanie] Savage and [Sallie] Patrick are trying to combine the campiness of the original with the banter-heavy rhythm of their previous shows, and the combination just doesn't work.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

It could be fun, so long as it doesn't try to make you think too much. That's pretty much Dynasty in a nutshell.

Jun 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Drinks, diamonds, and drama galore in fun, soapy reboot.

Oct 10, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The rebooted Dynasty is a paler shade of the original - it doesn't have the same scale in terms of attitude and sass, not yet anyway.

Oct 10, 2017 | Full Review…

The show does a lot to let us know that it's of the times.

Audience Reviews for Dynasty: Season 1

  • Aug 27, 2020
    Dynasty is my favorite soap opera of all time, my 3rd favorite new show of 2017, and one of my favorite shows of all time. Elizabeth Gillies performance is exceptional, she plays this role perfectly with a sassy, fiery, charismatic, funny, and very entertaining but also an emotionally deep and complex performance. Other performances from Nicollette Sheridan, Nathalie Kelley, Brianna Brown, Wakeema Hollis, Grant Show, Rafael de La Fuente, Alan Dale, Sam Adegoke, and James Mackay were outstanding. The chemistry between the cast is terrific. I love the music especially the opening theme, the music is phenomenal. The costumes are spectacular especially on Elizabeth Gillies, Nicollette Sheridan, Nathalie Kelley, Wakeema Hollis, Rafael de La Fuente, Alan Dale, Grant Show, and Sam Adegoke. The makeup and hairstyling was stupendous especially on Elizabeth Gillies, Wakeema Hollis, Nathalie Kelley, Kelly Rutherford, Nicollette Sheridan, Adam Huber, and Brianna Brown. The writing is pretty darn great for a soap opera, probably the best I have every seen. This was an A+ first season.

    It is a trashy over the top soap opera, and that is exactly what it wants to be.
  • Jul 12, 2020
    I had low expectations. Sort of a forced watch with the wife. Turned out to be VERY entertaining. I am normally a sci fi guy, but I have to tell you the sheer ridiculousness of this show makes it worth a watch. Dont go in looking for depth, but do go in for entertainment. You will find it.
  • Jul 03, 2020
    This show is terrible, it is so removed from the original program. The writers of this show should be sacked, Netflix what were you thinking, so many great shows produced this is not one of them...
  • Jun 12, 2020
    I expected much more from such prominent title. Boring and repeatable. No interesting story.
  • Jun 10, 2020
    I was listening not watching from another room initially. I thought it was dubbed by non actors it sounded so bad and was shocked to see the actors were all actually speaking. It came across to me more like a read through than an actual take, in e-v-e-r-y scene, oh well. It doesn't compare to the original but seems trashy and over the top enough to be entertaining when escapism is your goal.
  • Jun 03, 2020
    This is my guilty pleasure. I don't know why, but i am naturally drawn to this type of entertainment. I like the characters, the "over the top drama", the storyline and the themes. Fallon is a very entertaining character and she is pretty funny too. I just don't really like how they brought back Alexis. I think that her storylines were pretty weird. That is about it. Some of the drama feels like it could never happen in real life. But that is just the style of the show, and luckily i enjoy it.
  • May 28, 2020
    Sloppy horrible writing but what's worse is how racist and tone-deaf this show is. Black and Latino characters are portrayed as gold-digging, law-breaking payroll enablers. Nauseating racism all over. Latino-hating, black-insulting, gay-demeaning, white-bukkakeism. Unbelievable.
  • Apr 25, 2020
    Good show but the REALLY need to tone down the blatant racist and gay stereotypes. It's about as subtle as Disney's, ike when Fallon implied Monica was a pest right after she said the word raccoon.
  • Apr 24, 2020
    The tv is good but it missed a little of drama but de the characters are good on the story interesting
