I've just caught up on this week and the Sheila/Quinn catfight on Monday was [!@#$%^&*] brilliant. I know shows don't do them these days because of the cost of stunt performers and I also find them a bit dated unless there's strong enough conflict to warrant it but it was really well produced. I also thought the way the scenes were written and choreographed put both characters on a pretty level playing field which tbh I don't think B&B has done with two characters since Sheila/Stephanie. I liked that Quinn went for it and didn't continue down the rather out of character snivelling routine she's done for months.
But. They really do need to write Sheila more subtly. They could still play these story beats and make them even more compelling if she was just a little less obvious in her chasing after Eric.
The rest of the show is barely holding my interest. I think the Bill/Caroline plot is typically facile - how would they not get caught out? There could be interesting conflict if Brooke was pulled into it too but I don't see that happening because Brad has nothing to give KKL these days, he'd rather use Steffy.
The Spectras are in holding pattern - Courtney Hope really is the shining star though. The show is extremely lucky to have her...for now.
I just watched Episode 1328. WOW! Those scenes between Jill and Faith could be used in acting classes. Faith really let. her. HAVE IT!!! I'm gonna have to watch that again. Jill certainly gives it back to Faith regarding her alcoholism. After Faith defiantly pours herself a glass of scotch and guzzles it, Jill crosses the room and pours her another, BIGGER, glass. Amazing. Everything is on all cylinders - the writing, the direction, the acting. Bravo, Ryan's Hope, Bravo.
And now Delia suspects about Barry and Lily. Thank God! I was worried they were going to end up getting married. I doubt Barry will get out of it - Delia is too clever these days. She's starting to put it together. I like where this all is going! Now onto Another World 1989 while I exercise.
I laughed when I heard about Trump's meltdown yesterday because it was a validation that Trump was who I always thought he was.
For all of Trump's bluster yesterday, it didn't deter Baltimore from removing their Confederate statues.
