The Dynasty Years documents and analyses in detail 'the Dynasty phenomenon', the hotly debated success of the Hollywood-made 'Rolls Royce of a primetime soap' which heralded a profound transformation of European television.
From the operatic camp of Krystle and Alexis' fight in the lilypond or the Moldavian wedding massacre to the unprecedented gay sub-plot, Dynasty represented, in the words of co-producer Esther Shapiro, "the ultimate dollhouse fantasy for middle-aged women". Using evidence from audience survey results, newspaper and magazine clippings and letters to broadcasters and drawing on semiotics, psychoanalysis, feminism and critical social theories, Jostein Gripsrud examines every aspect of Dynasty's production, reception and context.
The result is a groundbreaking critical study. Jostein Gripsrud offers a theoretical but empirically grounded critique of many central positions in media studies, including notions of 'audience resistance' and the 'sovereign' audience and its freedom in meaning-making, arguing against what he perceives as the uncritical celebrations of the soap-opera genre in much contemporary media criticism.

About the Author:

Jostein Gripsrud is Professor in the Department of Media Studies, Univeristy of Bergen, Norway.

Review:

One of the most sensible books I have read about the meanings and demeaning of television ... a clear-headed analysis of the Dynasty phenomenon. Gripsrud's reflections on the static and wistful academic celebrations of American television are sorely needed..
–Todd Gitlin, University of California, Berkeley

Jostein Gripsrud's study of Dynasty provides an original perspecitive on the processes and consequences of one of the main themes of our era -- the internationalization of popular culture..
–Nick Browne, University of California, Los Angeles
