    I really don't know if I can commit to it being shown every week day. But I may have no choice :D

    Didn't Virgin add Zone Romantica fairly recently? Presumably you'll get the rebranded channel if so.

    I won't be watching for awhile as I've seen the first three seasons on DVD. As soon as S4 starts though I'll be jumping right in.

    I can't remember if I watched it from the very beginning originally or not.

    I do remember watching it lying on my Gran's bobbly green settee with the white lace antimacassar drinking cup a soup though, whenever I did start.

    I didn't remember the first series AT ALL, though flashes of season 2 came back to me, more from the UK GOLD days, I'd imagine

    I've only got the first two series, so I'm READY TO GO once season 3 starts :disco:

    I only remember Season 1 from the UK gold repeats about 10 years ago, however, i think it must have been midway season 2 when on a friday night it would be Dynasty Mania :disco: I remember staying around my nans house sometimes and she got into it, tho apparently it was nowhere as good as Sons and Daughters according to her

    I feel like the only way this will be watchable is if it's in the "it's so bad it's good" genre.

    Interested to know who the cast is though. Is it almost a GIVEN that Joan will make an appearance at some stage?

    Hmm.... I can't imagine The CW are going to do a direct continuation like the rebooted Dallas, so I'd imagine this is going to be mid 20's Fallon again. It'll also probably be total shit, as with most reboots and almost every CW show that isn't DC, but still yay (ish).

    It's a reboot rather than a continuation. Which means no Joan. Which means NO FUCKING POINT.

    I hope they revive Sammy Jo and that she's a trans latina nail bar worker.

    On the topic of Dynasty, I never had any idea this existed

    The reboot has been picked up for series, should start next year or this fall.

    Oh, she won't be, as it's a total REDO of the original.

    BOO :(

    I think she will get a cameo before the end of the first season. They won't be able to resist.

    Of course she will, but she won't be Alexis, which is the WHOLE DAMNED POINT. I mean, how can they recast Alexis? But considering the premise I just read was "Fallon is annoyed with Blake who is marrying his secretary, Krystle (spelled Cristal I might add :evil:)" then Alexis is BOUND to be a character in the new one. I do think it's FUCKING stupid trying to give iconic roles like that out to anyone else...

    I wish they'd done Dallas and focused on Fallon and Jeff's kids etc. Or certainly the next generation, so they could have included some of the old GANG. Imagine Dominique Deveraux MINCING back in :disco:

    Is he Blake? Everything is blocked at work so I just looked on my phone quick. I do love Alan Dale, though.

    The CW have OUTDONE themselves. If it does turn out to be as ludicrously awful as this suggests then it should be a FUN RIDE if nothing else.

    I feel like I've watched an edited version of the first 6 episodes and don't need to see the rest but it looks like there's plenty of GAY INTEREST scenes to watch the first few episodes.

    I hope they introduce Adam and Amanda at some point, provided it doesn't get cancelled.

    Oh my god, it looks TERRIBLE! The characters are so iconic I just don't get how they can redo them- with Sammy Jo as a man? :D :manson: What the fuck are they going to do with Alexis, that's the problem? Surely they can't recast her, but they can't live without her and Joan won't fit in the original role. What a headfuck!

    Grant Show has aged well though :disco:

    It hardly seems like a remake, just the same names. Which is probably a good thing. Something kinda bugs me about that gay from Empire. Loved Grant Show in Devious Maids though, he's a class act.

    It reminds me a lot of that FLOPULOUS Aaron Spelling soap opera "Titans" from the early 2000s :D

    Er, and exactly the same premise. And same relationships. And same setting by the looks of it.

    Except Krystle is NOTHING like the one from the original. She was the one who was always trying hard to win Fallon over instead of saying shit like "Call me MOM" LOL. And I don't remember Fallon and Krystle hating each other to the point of ripping each other's dresses or having any physical altercation. That relationship has been morphed.

    Also, if the trailer is anything to go by, then the premise HAS changed because it seems like it's being told much more from Fallon's POV instead of Krystle.

    I think I prefer these changes though. No point in just rehashing the old stuff.

    NO SHIT MISS MARPLE

    Never use LOL like that again. Ever.

    Obviously cause the main thing everyone went on about in Dynasty was the catfights and so they've got Fallon and Krystle having one when actually they didn't start til Joan turned up and, well, basically hit EVERYONE. Fallon did detest Krystle- it was the crux of the whole first series and how Fallon was spoiled, had an affair with the chauffeur etc. etc., Steven dealing with his sexuality (which won't be handled in the same way in 2016). So in other words, exactly the same as in the trailer.

    The original series was from neither's point of view. I don't think the trailer shows it's going to be from Fallon's point of view either- there were whole sections without her in it.

    Oh JUST FUCKING TOP YOURSELF.

    It's crazy to think that John Forsythe was only about 7 years older than Grant Show is as Blake...

    Yes but Krystle didn't detest Fallon BACK the way that trailer made it look like. She didn't want to compete for Blake, she just wanted Fallon's approval and didn't get it until later. That kinda just ever so fucking slightly changes their relationship.

    Again, a recount of the original would just be lame. A few changes would be nice.

    LOL

    Did anyone bother with this? Apparently it's not so bad (and at least for me it's on Netflix every week).

    Nicolette Sheridan will be playing Alexis.

    Just checked her Instagram and she really has not aged the slightest bit since she left DH in what, 2009?

    QUEEN!

    It isn't bad at all. I'm relatively surprised. Albeit that it will NEVER touch the original...

    It's such a shame they couldn't reboot the old one with some new faces- no one will EVER be as good as Joan, let's face it, but, in fairness, Nicolette Sheridan is not a half bad stab. Presumably she isn't going to be English anymore- that accent could be CATASTROPHIC :D
