Trivia

George Peppard originally was offered the role of "Blake Carrington" but Peppard's refusal to play Blake with the shades of moral ambiguity that the writers wrote for Blake caused them to go with their second choice, John Forsythe. See more »

'Oil' (the three first episodes) - strong, thematically rich pilot
5 August 2014 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I'm just starting to watch "Dynasty" and am already enjoying it quite a lot. The music, sets and costumes are rich, characterization is concise and varied. With the children of oil dynasty magnate Blake: sassy and rambunctious Fallon (who also brings an aura of playful sexiness to the screen) and homosexual, introvert Steven (who brings with him a more thoughtful and problematic atmosphere), the show has established an intriguing, well-drawn pair of characters who will probably keep me watching the show for some time from now on. Less interesting, if well-made, was the plot revolving around the oil rig and the ex-flame of Blake's wife-to-be, Krystle. It sure served to show that Blake's oil empire is not built on philanthropy, but at the same time felt a little more clichéd than other parts of this all in all beautiful 3-part pilot that is well worth watching if one can muster some love for 80s TV.
