'Oil' (the three first episodes) - strong, thematically rich pilot
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.
