I already took it off the DVR schedule that I had it set up on-- two episodes worth, and not feeling it, so off it goes!Overall, the show is sliding into boring territory for me, and unless they bring an amazing Alexis (what are the chances?), I will take it off my Netflix list.
It didn't stop them for the rest of the pilot.http://www.vulture.com/2017/10/dyna..._campaign=vulture&utm_source=fb&utm_medium=s1
You can see the Opening up there if you missed the episode. Apparently the theme "wasn´t ready" for the Pilot...
Did they just pimp our fanfics of Caress and Alexis in South America with Zach Powers?Interesting that Blake mentioned that his mothers name was... Ellen. Yet again a nice throwback.
Good to see that little theme song. I think it's decent enough considering how short todays themes are unless you're a cable show.
We sort of know Cristal's secret? She stole money to escape Caraca, left her sister behind to rot while supposedly taking Sammy Jo with her.
The way they lit the set for the party scenes made it look just like what it is - a set. It looked so barren. Particularly when Fallon and Cristal were descending the stairs.So much about this episode I really didn't like. Worst episode so far I think. Steven was all kinds of annoying and the whole thing felt really tweeny and childish. That '80s party was tragic. Was it organised by people who'd never seen the '80s? There were like what? 20 extras in the house in bad outfits and throwing some blue and pink neon lights on the set didn't set a tone or make it feel special. That was an awful way to film that set. It made it look tiny. They should have just filmed the party scene with the house brightly lit, but showing it's night time outside. They should have had loads and loads of flowers all over the set too, twinkling champagne glasses and food porn shots of the buffet laden with all kinds of high end food bling. Then as the house is mostly white everyone's loud 80s outfits would have popped more. The guests looked like extras, all 6 of them! It was really apparent this episode that the budget just isn't there. There is no feeling of opulence here on this Dynasty. Saying you are spending 10 million dollars on a necklace when it all looks and feels so basic. No...
Stop with the juvenile tweeny thing. Stop Steven acting like an actor on Sesame St. Now! What happened to him? What's with the over acting and the eyes and all that childish bla?
Never put Fallon's hair up again! It was awful, or if they are going to do it again make it bigger on top, especially for an 80s party. I'm not really interested in seeing Cristal torment us with all her Kate from Lost type flashbacks for an eternity where we have no real clue what she's up to. It's so done to death already. That girl on the run with a mystery thing. Bla....
I hated mostly everything here. Except that they switched the exterior of the mansion to a much more tasteful house. It looks grand an opulent and the grounds and gardens are so pretty and feel a bit more old money. I also loved that interior set but they all but murdered it and filmed it in the ugliest way possible here.
Cristal should have worn the gold dress we see her trying on. Fallon should have worn the same dress but in red! It would have been a sort of throw back to original Krystal and Fallon. And yet a tribute to Alexis and Krystle in the same dress. Yes that necklace was awful too and if you are doing jewellery on Dynasty it has to match, it has to be a suite. The earrings on both ladies looked like drag queen cast offs. I also laughed at Guy Fawkes. Couldn't they have just said the cufflinks Alexis bought you on your trip to London?The way they lit the set for the party scenes made it look just like what it is - a set. It looked so barren. Particularly when Fallon and Cristal were descending the stairs.
The party was pretty tragic. I know they're on a CW budget but even the house parties in someone's kitchen on One Tree Hill used to look busier than this one did. And as for that necklace that they were auctioning! It looks like something the prop department bought in from Claire's. On the subject of accessories, who buys someone a present for Guy Fawkes? I know we're living by rich people rules on this show but could they not have come up with a better way to shoehorn in a hint that Alexis may be British?
