"Dynasty": This is Why You Should Be Watching the TV Series’ Reboot

If you are a TV series fan, I’m pretty sure you already heard of Dynasty - the CW and Netflix reboot of an iconic 80’s soap opera of the same name. 

Dynasty begins with heiress Fallon Carrington (aka Jade, from Victorious) unhappy to find her billionaire father Blake (Grant Show) engaged to Cristal (Nathalie Kelley), a rival employee at the family company. When Fallon's machinations to separate the couple backfire and cost her a promotion, she allies with Blake's nemesis, Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke), and strikes out on her own. 

Meanwhile, the arrival of Cristal's opportunistic nephew Sam (Rafael de la Fluente) — who becomes romantically involved with Fallon's brother, Steven (James Mackay) — threatens to expose her shady past. The Carringtons form a united front in the wake of the suspicious death of Cristal's former lover, but things at the mansion do not remain harmonious for long.
