Dynasty

Standard

The Carrington’s are back!

Blake has just become engaged to Crystal.  Fallon is still a bitch and Steven is still gay.  The Colby’s are black, Sami Jo is a hottie, and Blake is more ruthless than before while Crystal is a fire cracker this time around… and it is ON for young and old.  Alan ‘Everywhere’ Dale is Anders, the butler and that’s what I call a Mansion!

A cross between the original Dynasty, 90210 and Revenge … the CW could be onto another winner with this one.

 

8 Champagnes out of 10

STAR TREK: Discovery

Standard

New Trek For A New Generation

STAR TREK: Discovery has launched with a two part premiere.

Discovery 1

Now in the hands on Netflix and CBS the latest incarnation of the 60’s classic SciFi is a visual feast with state of the art effects (Captain Kirk will be SO jealous).  I didn’t even realise that it was being made!

The most obvious improvement is the portrayal of the Klingons with their new upgraded costumes and prosthetics making them a more believable enemy.  I have never been a fan of klingons and the endless subtitles when they are speaking is still a pain.

The new crew are an interesting and engaging bunch.  I was not convinced by the Captain’s performance in these first two episodes and want her gone.

May this new Star Trek series “live long and prosper”!

8 “Kinigons on the starboard bow” out of 10.  (It isn’t Dr Who, after all)

 

UPDATE: 24Oct2017:  

Star Trek: Discovery continues to deliver the best of the TV franchise.  The SFX are exceptional; the updated sets, ships and costumes are excellent.  The opening titles are brilliant.  There are also two major characters who are a gay couple with at lest a 15 year age gap between them.  One of the other characters is also Spock’s adopted sibling so it is now clear that this series is set before the first original Star Trek series.

UPDATE: 2Nov2017:  

Star Trek: Discovery episode 7 blew me away!  A brilliant timey-wimey tale featuring one of the gay characters.
