Couldn't they have picked a far better route to "reignite a rivalry"? Good Lord. Just the fact that Jack new Gabriel was Adam all this time and was helping him to worm his way back into the Newmans' lives should have been enough to get that rivalry going again.
I really liked JPL on OL the first few years when Rex was kind of a cad and scoundrel. It went dowhill for me around the time of the Adriana pairing...and then the incessant facial expressions/Gigi-Stacey crap.
I could imagine that trying to premiere a new show (such as Texas) at the time opposite GH and GL would have been a daunting task for anyone. It's too bad about the constant time slot shifts because people don't like change. People are creatures of habit and if they have the habit of watching a show at lunch time then they won't tend to follow it if it gets moved to a later time (say 2 or 3).
Liam/Wyatt are the new generation's Ridge/Thorne where they continually go after the same woman. Boring....I know it is a half-hour show and can only have so many characters but really? I don't think most brothers would want anything to do with the other's girl.
I would add Bobby Reno/Shane Roberts (RKK's second stint) on AW. He came on with "Ryan's eyes" and was thrust into story with Vicky, Jake, and they even brought Lila on only for him to be gone when his year was up? Lila seemed to forget all about him once she went after Matt and then Cass.
Happy DAYS has made improvements. Though I'm not a regular viewer I do want this show to succeed. I've been trying to tune in a little bit more lately because of the anniversary coming up and I find myself watching more of each episode than I used to. I don't find it as boring as it was several months ago and that's a good thing.
I'd rather a true "documentary" style type show with the original cast members talking about their time on the show. Granted, they probably wouldn't dish dirt but it would be nice to hear what Marcia Cross/Laura Leighton had to say about their salary demands...Heather Locklear being pulled into Hunter Tylo's lawsuit (if she can even talk about it)...what each actor thought when they got certain scripts (i.e. Kimberly blowing up the building...Taylor slamming her face into the door, etc)...how the felt about "the end". Where they ready? Did they still want to go on?
My fave show and this will be cheesy as Hell but I. CANNOT. WAIT. haha.
I'm sure the salary disputes mentioned above and the lawsuit of Hunter Tylo will probably make it in. I wonder how much will focus on the "near cancellation" until Heather Locklear "Saved The Show".
I don't remember reading anything anywhere either about any backstage "drama" really. Since most everyone (Except Thomas Calabro) did the EW reunion photo shoot thing a short time ago and most seemed interested in appearing on 2.0 I wouldn't think they could have hated each other too badly. LOL
I wonder if they will talk about the backstage hook-ups like Grant Show/Laura Leighton dating.
I had thought about Nicole Forrester as well but weren't there a lot of GL viewers that weren't really a fan? I might be okay with her. I just prefer Jessica Collins and think she may be better received.
