The original Adam Carrington has decided to let his opinion be heard about the CW reboot of, “Dynasty.” Gordon Thomson recently did an interview with The Daily Beast, and revealed, in no uncertain terms, just how appalled he was at the incarnation of the former ABC show. Aside from mentioning that the late former executive producer Aaron Spelling would not approve of the reboot, he also lashed out at the original creators of the series, Esther and Richard Shapiro.
“The acting is dreadful, truly dreadful. The writing is appalling. I don’t know what possessed the Shapiros to bother. Why call it Dynasty? It’s nothing to do with Dynasty at all. It’s insulting. If the afterlife exists — it doesn’t, but if it did — Aaron (Spelling) would be having major fits in his grave. And the audience the CW is aiming for is going to think it’s s–t because it is such s–t that a cretinous 6-year-old would not be interested. It’s abominable.”
Esther and Richard Shapiro serve as executive producers on the CW reboot. “Dynasty” premieres on October 11th at 9 PM on the CW.
