Critic Consensus: Dynasty is an opulent successor to the salacious dramas that it unabashedly borrows from, although viewers may find this backstabbing house to be less compelling than its television neighbors.

There is nothing cheap about this show but its conception. Once the idea for it was lifted outright from Dallas, no expense has been spared to make this copycat sleek.
It's not so much the cast as the words they speak and the beautiful mountain scenery that makes Dynasty click.
The character-conflicts, even if they are sometimes contrived and unoriginal, are handled with more subtlety and depth than is typical in shows of this type.
Off to a dull start, Dynasty's destiny is hard to predict, but we can predict it won't have an oil company for a sponsor.
All of this, and all of Dynasty, wouldn't be worthy of your disgust or mine if it weren't for the fact that the show is one of the more offensive network series in recent memory.
