I’m looking forward to this new “Dynasty”. I’ve always liked Grant Show, and hopefully this reboot will be as much fun to watch as the original!

Not excited particularly – DYNASTY was fine in it’s day, I’m not certain that a re-make of it will work today.

Ugh. Why is a network doing this? I’m all for a well written good soap. However, trying to recreate a highly popular serial by recasting the parts with new actors likely will not work. I feel sorry for the actress who is cast as Alexis —- Imagine trying to compete with Joan Collins’ success in the role!! I thought the Dallas reboot was a flop. It had great potential and (thanks to Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, etc) had a great connection to the past success. However, the writers had absolutely NO idea what to do with it and… Read more »

The original was too campy for my tastes — KNOTS LANDING will always be the gold standard for primetime soaps — but I’m willing to give this chance since Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick are writing/producing.

I remember watching “Dynasty” as a little girl. In the 80’s, daytime and evening “soaps” spared no expense, as we were able to enter into a world of glitz and glamour. My favorite evening “soap” was Knots Landing. I enjoyed Dallas, too. I liked the Dallas remake and loved seeing a few of my favorites from the original back on-screen. Not sure I will watch the remake of Dynasty..

I never heard of Dynasty , but never seen it.
Just want say.
When people love a soap it’s because of the actors.
Without the original cast it no longer is Dynasty ..

There is going to be a lot of disapointment. It will not be Dynasty but a knock-off that will disapoint.

((MASH could never be brought back, either))

I was on the fence but Rafael de la Fuente? Now I’m in. And he’s playing a boyfriend of Steven’s? I hope he doesn’t come to he same fate as Steven’s first boyfriend on the original “Dynasty.”

General Hospital and Dynasty Star, Emma Samms Shares Her Battle With “Long Covid”

While General Hospital fans have been curious to find out just what is the true fate of Holly Sutton who is believed to have died, sending Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) on a mission to find out just what had happened to her, Sutton’s portrayer, Emma Samms has been going through her own difficult time since testing positive for the coronavirus back in March in the U.K.

Samms was never hospitalized for her symptoms related to the virus, but according to a report and interview with The Times, she has been suffering from long bouts of tremendous fatigue, where even small tasks like talking on the phone or doing gardening have become difficult for her.

Emma revealed, “This panic-inducing level of fatigue has been less startling and immensely compromising … and it fluctuates. I improve slightly, have a couple of good days, and assume I am on the road to recovery, only to go right back to feeling horrendous.”

The popular actress has a condition currently called “Long Covid”.  However, researchers and doctors  who are working closely on COVID-19 are still unsure why certain people have been unable to recover, nor how to treat the condition, which mimics Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The actress who first became soap famous for GH, later appeared on the original ABC version of Dynasty as Fallon Carrington.

Send your thoughts and well-wishes to Emma during this difficult time, as we know many General Hospital fans would love to see her back on the ABC daytime drama series as a very much alive, Holly.  Comment below.

How B&B & ‘Dynasty’ Showrunners Are Being Creative To Keep Sex & Intimacy Alive In The Soap Genre Amidst COVID-19

In one of the more entertaining but true titles of an article in the New York Times, “How to Shoot a Sex Scene in a Pandemic: Cue the Mannequins” several series executive producers and showrunners participated and related how they are coming up with ways to exist in a COVID-19 world, but need to keep the love stories, and intimate moments still look alluring for its viewership, especially those bonafide soaps.

At the forefront remains The Bold and the Beautiful and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell.  BOLD has returned to making new episodes and as noted today, will be airing all-new episodes come July 20th.

In the NY Times piece, Bell shared on making the love scenes work:  “At first, we took out the love scenes, and the show was falling a little flat because we’re all about romance and family interactions. One of the first ideas we had was to bring in mannequins for the intimate scenes and hospital scenes, and it’s working quite well — we’re shooting it from a great distance or in a way you can’t see the form is inanimate.”

When asked how his cast is handling the transition to lifeless stand-ins, he shared.  “We’ve had a lot of strange looks and questions like, Do you really want to do this? But everyone is game. They are getting their first latex kiss.”

Another soap, CW’s Dynasty, who had to wrap its 3rd season much earlier than they had hoped, without the wedding of Fallon and Liam due to COVID-19, is figuring out how their over-the-top sexy sudsy show might look when it returns.

Showrunner, Josh Reims shared with the Times: “Phone sex has certainly come up a lot. I was looking through the first episode written before all this, and basically removed everything that said, ‘And then they kiss.’”

Reims noted: “The joke among the writers is that we will watch two characters say they want to have sex and then cut to them saying, ‘That was some great sex.’”

It is Reims true hople that when Dynasty returns next spring in 2021, that the effects of COVID-19 will not be felt or will have at least subsided, adding “No one is watching ‘Dynasty’ to be reminded of a pandemic.”

So, looks like soaps are leading the charge to get you back to enjoying love in the afternoon or the evening? Comment below.
