  1. They promoted the Heck out of it, and the show was Good. Big Hit, loved the twists!

  2. TNT is the smartest cable network out there. They ARE paying attn. to what the viewers want and delivering! Can't wait for next weeks episode.

  3. The rating is good. The another prime time soap of 1980 could come back like "Dynasty". This sound like the 1980 after Dallas famous cliffhanger Who shot JR?

  4. Is Dynasty will come back.
    They deal with Blake Carrington's dead.
    The designer of shoulder pad suit and evening gowns died last week. Nolan Miller.

  5. So glad to see it back - it's been a long time since I've been this excited and couldn't wait for the show to start - Loved the count down taking place during Law & Order - like waiting for the ball to drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve
