DY­NASTY’S DOWN­FALL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

me­dia mogul is still try­ing to pull the strings of her life and that of their dam­aged son Caden. There are many threads to this in the open­ing episode, and plenty of clumsy ex­po­si­tion at times, but by the time you get to the end of part one (of eight), it’s done enough to drag you into the next – even if you feel at times like you’re belted into a car crash and can’t get away. The dy­nas­tic story tells of Caden’s im­po­tence in the shadow of his king­maker fa­ther, who jets in from his US base to in­ter­view a woman as­pir­ing to be Bri­tish PM. Dragged along for the meet­ing, Caden’s at­tempt to flex his mus­cle and win brownie points with his dad fails and the son spi­rals. AS the fi­nal sea­sons of this bril­liant Aus­tralian prison drama loom, those who have never checked into Cell Block H should sen­tence them­selves to binge­ing through sea­sons one to six.
