    No, I've only watched 2 ½ episodes. It was the very first one at my second attempt of watching it. ½ of the second one and the entire episode after Alexis showed up. Being familiar with the original show I didn't need to watch all the other episodes before it to understand what was going on. I could jump right in and watch the Alexis episode. I liked that episode the most since I like Nicholette Sheridan since she was on Knots Landing.

    But compared to original Dynasty the new show really is bad IMHO.

    Tbh I only still watch it because I enjoy reading the reactions on here which tend to be more entertaining than the show itself. It'silly, and when they do get things right they undo it pretty fast with more silliness. I don't particularly care about any of them, except Liam. Even Adam, who started out interesting, if a bit cartoonish, has now become quite ridiculous. Their treatment of the character of Alexis was unforgivable. For a character that was a power-dressing, ass-kicking icon in the 80's to be reduced to a trashy, whimpering loser was just pretty tragic to watch. If I wasn't on this forum I wouldn't still be watching it. I tend to spend a lot of the episode checking my messages and playing my Scrabble app.

    It's called Words With Friends. It's great! I play my parents, my brother, and a few friends who have it.

    I think the reboot is absolute rubbish. From the Cristal recast to overdoing it with Fallon, the poor choice in casting Blake, Steven and definitely Alexis and not having enough business in the show are all really bad. Esther said this show is about family and business and other than a few mentions about oil/energy here and there (from what little of the first season I watched), I haven’t seen much. The original made Fallon become useless once Alexis came on board and the reboot made Alexis unnecessary after having such a strong (too much) character in Fallon. I do read the episode recaps and reactions in here; most of which tell me I made the right decision in not watching.

    It’s just a new show with Dynasty slapped on it for me, it’s achieved a level of absurdity that would make The Shapiros proud and well up with tears of joy

    I guess it's their way of making it different from other current shows (assuming there is a creative plan) - and sometimes it really works.
    It's a bumpy ride, to say the least, I bailed twice and was lured back when things got exciting again. I've tried to figure out what this show is all about, but that also didn't work.

    NuDynasty is a show that you watch with the curtains closed. You don't put it in your NetflixList and you delete the cookies and browser history after you've finished watching the episode. It really is the guiltiest of all guilty sort-of-pleasures.

    2017 I think (unless it is 2016)
    I don't watch it like a show that I always check out when it is on my Tivo, and it has gone and off the recording list once already, then came back (when Liam came back). CW is generally not a network I like in its more recent reincarnation. I think I am more interested in what fans of Dynasty have to say about this Frankentlanta version of it, so that is what usually motivates me to watch. But it is not a guilty pleasure: this would require for it to provide me, you know, pleasure.

    I watch it, and really enjoy it...I see it as pure fun and the entertainment factor is enourmus. Of course the O-Dynasty is outstanding, you can not compare it with the new show..in my opinion

    I watched the pilot right after it aired ...then I needed time to recover ... 2 month ago I watched the first 2 seasons.
    It had some nice moments (well known dialogues, scenes or the theme....) but I could´t took it serious.
    Fallon is the only good thing about it ... Alexis became a trashy, poor bi*ch without style and elegance.
    Sammy Jo and Joseph had some nice scenes togethers ... but it´s more comedy than drama.

    I haven't seen an episode of the new series. Just the occasional scene here and there.

    It seems to be firmly pitched at a very different demographic from original viewers of the series, and I'm too old and jaded to watch it out of loyalty, hate or even curiosity. Not even Alan Dale has enticed me in.

    As @Richard Channing said, the discussion around the show is enjoyable, so I've been following some of the threads in the newDynasty forum.

    Yes, and it's the best show ever imho. Much better than the dire original especially season two which beats the original's season two by horse miles :clap:

    Oh, so you've seen Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) taking over Nicollette Sheridan for the role of Alexis ? :lol:
    If not, think Pamela Sue Martin taking over Joan Collins, and playing both parts. Yes, it's totally absurd.

    Yet, I watch the show. It has some good moments, and some good episodes. But overall, well, it's bad writing.
