News & Interviews for Dynasty: Season 1
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.
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.
The single biggest shocker about this Dynasty is that it's not bad.

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