Events happen fast here, and almost at times at breakneck speed. The Carrington clan stumble upon a new addition to their family, in Blake and Alexis' long lost son, Adam, who conveniently pops up shortly after they make an appeal concerning the abduction of their grandchild. Adam turns out to be suitably evil. Kirby, the butler's daughter, arrives unexpectedly and shakes things up in the Carrington home, marrying Jeff, as does Krystle's ex husband, Mark, who re-enters Krystle's life after some prompting from Alexis. The biggest event, perhaps, is the return of Steven, who has been injured in an oil rig explosion, and has had to have his face surgically reconstructed. Actually, that was the basic premise in introducing the new Steven, played by Jack Coleman, as the replacement of the departed Al Corley. However, like much of 'Dynasty's third season, the new Steven isn't half as convincing as the Steven who went before him.
There is still much to enjoy about season three, however. There are some quite engrossing sub plots existing alongside the gloss and extravagance and excessive nature of much of what's on offer, which means there is always a plot thread that is of interest, even if there are other aspects which seem all too ridiculous. Visually, the series is becoming more striking, too, and the acting, especially from John Forsythe, always holds an air of integrity within its delivery, which means despite the plot and often script shortcomings, it is still easily digestable, without descending into farce. 'Dynasty', during season three, still comes up trumps for the viewer, but just don't think too deeply about it. Reserve that for seasons one and two, which both stand up a great deal better to scrutiny.
Leisurely as the pace is, it looks beautiful, and most of the plots this year are ones that Dynasty is remembered for. Each episode has a plot or a moment that would be guaranteed water-cooler talk.
HIGHLIGHTS THIS YEAR INCLUDE:
-A marriage so short, Britney Spears should be taking notes. Start counting the seconds as the ring goes on!
-Several new characters - including the proverbial long-lost son (devious Adam), Krystle's ex-husband (or is he?) and Joseph's cute but determined daughter Kirby - who sets her sights on Jeff.
-A new face for an old favourite - every bit of melodrama is squeezed out of it too, with plastic surgery in Singapore.
-Alexis becomes the most powerful woman in Denver - and plans to destroy her enemies.
-The "roaring twenties" grand opening of Fallon's hotel, La Mirage.
-A plot to drive Jeff insane - - by painting his office with poisonous paint (yes, really)!!
AND OF COURSE
-The infamous "lily pond catfight" - arguably Dynasty's most famous moment of all time. Quaint as this may seem, it's also notable for being the first time the word "bitch" was allowed to be used on American network tv
The show never takes itself seriously, and doesn't pretend to be highbrow for a minute. The emphasis is on the fun.
A large clamshell keepcase, within a beautiful sleeve, decorated with images from the show. A perfect match for Seasons One and Two. As before, the episode guide is viewable inside the case.
Sadly, no bonus material at all (in fairness, there wasn't any on the half-volume Region 1 sets either, but something - ANYTHING - would have been nice. The disc holders are rather fragile, but fortunately, mine arrived intact. Handle with care.
A rather retrogressive move on the menu - no option to "Play All". Season 2 had it, so why not Season 3? It's a shame to interrupt a Dynasty marathon by going to the menu between each episode. Having said that, the images on the menu look nice, there's a good choice of languages for subtitles, and the chapter stops are perfectly placed, as always.
Of course - as mentioned above, - CBS/Paramount UK score points for giving us a complete season at a very reasonable price (and very soon after Seasons 1 and 2, as well - with "Series" 4 available to pre-order now). Keep up the great work guys.
Overall, a great package at a very keen price. Grab it - before Alexis sets her sights on it.
