Apart from Dylan In Miami, today worked for me.
As always, Sharon Case is doing some good work here and her scenes with DD were nicely done. I'm glad they didn't have Paul knocking down her door screaming at her. And I liked her sharing pictures of him with Paul. These kind of moments is why I love soap.
Hilary/Devon was compelling. I know we've all seen this coming but I like the way it was structured with Mariah telling him what happened with the overlay of the flashback scenes. I dreaded them getting back to the penthouse, and Devon was pretty harsh with her. But it was compelling nonetheless. ere I am invested in this couple at this point and am looking forward to seeing where this story takes them.
Ravi and Ashley - two thumbs up from this viewer. The guy playing Ravi has a unique charisma that I hadn't really noticed until today. I like him.
And I'll even say that Jack and Gloria were interesting today. Gloria hasn't been on a whole lot this week, and I can tolerate her when JC tones it down a bit and isn't on-screen everyday.
And the Dylan story - I was buying it when he was in Genoa City. This move to "Miami" has thrown me off and honestly, it's a miss. They built up a good exit for the character and if the scenes of him on assignment would have been better produced, it wouldn't have been as jarring and disconnected from the rest of the show.
Anna was more of a jet setter...very over the top...yet at the same time...subtle. she and calliope were a fun friendship...and showed Anna could be grounded.
I think current writers forget that the 80s were larger then life...but it wasn't played up as such back then...back then, it was how life was and was played serious and not like a bad joke. It seems like any writer wanting to resurrect a character from the 80s...makes them so OTT that u wonder how they can dress themselves.
