Felicia Gallant would not approve of Lorna Devon's inability to move her facial muscles in Genoa City. Felicia, if she even had work done, made sure it was not obvious. Class! They sure dispensed with Sage right quick. I watched the opening writing credits closely because I could swear with the latest GH-type plot twists that Carlivati would be listed as head writer. Pratt must have watched Carlivati's GH. Spencer's plot....er I mean Max...these cute little maniac stories..Who's the new hunk playing Vickie's boi toi? I like him so far. Robert Scot Wilson for the role of Noah! Nick needs a haircut and a new storyline and reunion weekend with the Lee Strasburg School of Acting.
Sage dead: TIRED. Every three months this show has a car accident. Those Vicki/Nick and Ashley/Hillary scenes were painful. Billy/Ph/Jack: so unrealistic and convoluted. Sharon's tear ducts dont work. Her face doesn't move. Bill Bell .....spinning
Well, it's very clear that viewers have soundly rejected Griffith's take on Salem. What a dismal failure the last six months have been. No wonder they are working overtime to edit and cut episodes. I don't see this show being around past the one year extension. Has any other soap had these horrible ratings except Passions?
Thanks Jason. Edwin announced his new job start date right after Labor Day last year so we know this script was written seven months ago. They rarely keep 7 dialog writers. I wonder who's next to leave the staff? I'm guessing Cherrill who is a senior citizen:)
Finally saw Chancellor set in Thurs episode. WTFFFFFFFF. That is the single, most asinine update to the iconic set; a complete and utter lack of vision- not honoring show and finding a way to update and reinterpret. LAZY and a big F.U. to Bell/Cooper. That blue, grey with the red door..looks like cheaply built set to shoot Pottery Barn Kids -Boys- furniture samples.
While I don't have specific intel on who actually head wrote this drivel we are seeing, it feel so much like Griffith on steroids. And not Dena at all, and I know she was on leave for a bit. The Summer story feels like a Dena story, but most of the rest i.e. Deimos, Abby/Ben...sick and twisted./Griffith...thank goddess he's out of the writer's room.
Yes, Season 2 has been plagued by some bad story decisions, some bad scripting and some bad acting. But then there are marvelous moments of sheer talent with the intersection of music and plot and character. So far the weakest episode was this most recent one as written/directed by creator Danny Strong. It was embarrassingly overdramatic. Andre crumpled on the floor. Too much. Lucious screaming and breaking down to Cookie, the gun. Too over the top and cheesy. When they focus on Cookie and branch out from the music biz plot they have gold. Cookie and her sister's search for the drugged out sister was great as were the prison concert scenes. The actor playing Hakeim can't carry the material they give him and his bevy of women strains all dramatic license. Naomi Lurch Campbell is not fun to watch at all; she's not an actress; she's a strange looking model. Give me more Cookie family history, more Portia. And stop with Gabby S. She can't act. I don't care if she rocked in Precious. She stinks on this show. They need some seasoned writers to come in and help with story. They are in danger of making a mockery of their own success. Some of the costumes have been too over the top. I get it that they want to be fabulous but reign it in just a lil and it'll be more compelling and fun. I still watch because the talent on the show is astounding overall.
Natalie, Mariah and Kevin. Say it ain't so...I'd rather see Kevin in a gorilla outfit robbing stories in GC. Mariah hasn't worked as a character. Jelly ruined the character with that ridiculous Ian story. Let her go.
This performer playing Duke's son must have gone the same acting coach as Ryan Paevy. Now if they made both characters bisexual that would be hot and we could forgive their non acting. And who decided to do this professor story with Kristina. It's gross. Kristina looks like a kid and has no sexual chemistry with this Amazon woman. Please, what a misfire. And I"m all for a bi story with a young lass like Kristina but NOOO...kill this story stat.
