I thought she'd be gone after Eric & Nicole were nearly incinerated. With 6 month's advance knowledge, it just seems so pointless to have her roaming about Salem, talking to Brady, etc. Just go already.
Judging from his Instagram posts, he's been doing a lot of partying in recent months/past year or so, as he performs in a band. I thought the same thing, in that he looks like someone who's coming to work hungover.
Finally caught OC. The highlight for me was definitely when Tamra called out the medium. Hilarious! She didn't even do it directly, she just innocently asked Vicki's brother what his tattoo was. I don't believe much in that stuff (and the housewives from nearly every franchise seem to love them), so when the flamboyant medium looked like a deer in the headlights, I was LOLing. And to prevent further embarrassment, he threw shade at Tamra, saying he can't be distracted by other interference when trying to read the spirits' energies or whatnot.
Meghan and her parenting skills.... okay lady. She's not doing her homework, but you hand her a $100 bill for allowance. That'll teach her...
If DAYS didn't tape half a year in advance (plus the fact that their new headwriter material has yet to begin airing), I could see Carlivati landing there, in Corday's attempt to recapture the crazy 90's era.
Absolutely. This is one of the things that drives me bonkers about extremely low-budget times. The coincidences of people bumping into each other is ridiculous, and DAYS is the worst offender.
And reusing the same ol' tired sets over and over for the past 4+ years makes everything day in and day out look the same. So not only do you have characters like Daniel, Jennifer, Nicole, Eric, Serena, etc. rehashing the same shi# ad nauseum, but their very surroundings are the same, whether it's the wall of leaves or the coffee shop. You could replay an episode from April, and I'd probably be about half-way through without realizing it's a repeat.
I'm looking forward to the alleged improvement in production values come September. I don't know how they're pulling it off, but I'll sure appreciate it.
Has it even been discussed on other boards/social media (where the whackadoos really run rampant) that Rick & Maya are an interracial couple? Whereas 20 years ago, AMC's Noah and Julia were so "groundbreaking," now it's a complete non-factor. Progress!
Maya's father's reaction to Zende being a Forrester was funny though.
B&B finally having its own successful black family is noteworthy, especially given their shoddy history. Although the parents will come & go, I could easily see Maya and Nicole sticking around for a long time. The fact that the actresses are a hit certainly helps.
