In the old days we loved the over the top drama and the ridiculous but entertaining storylines, I still love the original. But it's a very good move that they turned this reboot more & more into comedy gold. Lately I laughed more watching Dynasty than watching the current sitcoms. I don't think it would work today if they played it all straight & serious, we're not in the 80s anymore. Elizabeth Gillies is really excellent in her portrayal of the daughter at the edge of nervous breakdown, dealing with the childish adults. I get why some people don't like this direction of the show, but this makes their take on the number 1 super soap of the 80s very enjoyable.
