  1. Knew that today was a Patrick Mulcahey script.
  2. I dunno. I think KSJ and TC work well together and have great friend chemistry, but I wouldn't want to see Nina and Neil hook up. Of all the pairings Neil had since Dru, I liked Karen the most. But she left the show just when they were reaching their potential. And Nia Peeples was a fine actress.
  3. SSM did say in the Logan interview that wouldn't it be nice to bring on Jonelle Allen (who worked with SSM on Generations) as Hilary's mother. It was a joking, fanciful comment, but perhaps it indicates that she's interested in fleshing out Hilary's background more and explaining her insatiable drive. We'll see if she goes there.
  4. Bryton had fantastic chemistry with both Elizabeth Hendrickson and Marcy Rylan. They brought out the humor in Devon. It was absolutely gutless that they didn't allow those relationships to be explored. But not surprising.
  5. It was 2007, so it was before the ATWT/GL and the AMC/OLTL cancellations.
  6. I remember that daytime writers' panel I attended years ago with Claire Labine, David Kriezman, and Shelly Altman, among others. The writers, Altman in particular, were openly hostile to the idea of writer development programs or even giving advice to budding soap writers because they were fearful of losing their lucrative jobs in a shrinking, dying industry.
  7. What heroic performances from Del Potro and Delbonis to win Argentina their first Davis Cup!
  8. Two of the most handsome men in tennis.
  9. Well I hope Novak pulls it together. We saw flashes of the old Novak in WTF semifinal (granted, Kei also played like [!@#$%^&*] most of the time). Perhaps the time off will be rejuvenating. He is inarguably one of the greatest to ever pick up a racquet, and if he retired tomorrow, his legacy would be set.
  10. Well, that was embarrassing for Kei. For a top player who can be so dangerous, he sure can tank big matches. I'm one of those rare Nole fans, so I'm happy with the result. Murray looked vulnerable against Raonic (who really should have won today), so it'll be interesting to see what level he brings against Djokovic tomorrow.
  11. Very interesting piece. I haven't liked American male players since Agassi. They do have a smug, insular, entitled quality. I once had a soft spot for Stevie Johnson since he seemed like an unassuming guy on court, but once he started whining about DelPotro's much-deserved wild card at the USO, it was over. And I can't even rally around the Bryan brothers either in doubles. Hopefully, Tiafoe and Mmoh will live up to their potential and give tennis fans people to root for.
  12. Not to mention Maria's absence. Sport needs villains. I oddly missed her and I wasn't expecting to, if only to see her humiliated by Serena on a regular basis.
  13. Agreed. I watched that match and was screaming at the television each time Kei hit a misguided dropshot. It was insane. I hope Michael Chang rips him a new one for that.
  14. I loved it too. The old chemistry was still there. Even Debbie, while still slightly ditzy, was a welcome sight. If I were a current View co-host watching that, I'd be quaking in my boots.
  15. RIP. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be a soap opera writer, and I wrote to her not expecting a response. She mailed me back the loveliest note filled with practical advice on life and career. I'll always be appreciative of her for that.
