Storyline

Patriarch Jonas Morehouse shepherds his daughter Cynthia and adopted son Devon from meager beginnings in the oil fields of Texas to powerful boardrooms in New York City. Cynthia and Devon, entwined in undeniable love, stumble through war-torn battlefields, blazing mansions, filthy drug dens and velvet-sheeted bedrooms on their quest for power and influence. Despite Jonas's best efforts to intervene, Cynthia and Devon's merciless love sets into motion a wave of destruction that crashes down on Devon's graceful wife Lady Anne, his daughter Marianne, his colleague and lover Dixie, Cynthia's hen-pecked husband Chet, her evil son Winston, the scheming Generals and far beyond.

Douglas Sirk would be proud.
11 January 2014 | by (Leominster Mass USA) – See all my reviews

Using the toolkit of those "adult dramas" of so long ago, this wonderful spoof is a joy to watch. Just check out "Written on the Wind" and "The Tarnished Angels" to see how "Spoils of Babylon" got it right.

An A-list cast, ultra-widescreen cinematography , a lush opening song and miniatures that are just so mini; all come together in a story line that is more line than story.

The premise that the original 22 hour production has been cut down to 6 30 minute episodes is supposed to allow the writers to get to the heart of the story. In truth, the just got rid of the boring parts.

Production values are solid. The acting hits the right tone without being to over the top.

Fun from beginning to end.
