This past week I was invited to The CW viewing party for the new series Dynasty, at the beautiful Mountain Shadows Resort in Paradise Valley. It was fun to watch the season premiere with other fellow lifestyle and fashion bloggers all dolled up for the occasion. We popped some bubbly and celebrated all things glam (especially the fashion in the show…you will know what I mean when you watch). It was like a sleepover with your BFF’s but instead of pajamas we were all in cocktail gear!
I was excited for the invite because I remember the original Dynasty in the early 80’s (I was just a thought back then but I remember the re-runs when I was older). I wasn’t sure if this new reboot could compete with Joan Collins and Linda Evans fierce feud throughout the series but I was ready to give it a watch to see.
It’s been nearly three decades after the original Dynasty premiered on NBC and now The CW has debuted the new series. The show is very different from the original but it’s fitting and competes against some other high drama shows in that time slot. The reboot is centered more on the business aspirations of the two leading ladies which I seem to like more than the original show.
The new Dynasty is a cross between Gossip Girl (the fashion) and The Real House Wives (the cat fights and drama). The story is told primarily by Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies), who is the daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington (Grant Show) and her soon to be mother in law Cristal Flores (Nathalie Kelley) that works for her father. After her homecoming, Fallon Carrington is positive that she will be receiving a promotion in her father’s business but soon finds out that she was overlooked for….I will stop there so you can tune in on Wednesdays 9/8c on The CW. Overall the show definitely left me wanting more and as soon as I left the viewing party I got home and set my DVR to record it so I don’t miss a thing!
