That's an big understatement Dee! It was good to see Jess Walton back in the opening credits today and she is the one bright spot on the show. She makes every scene just come alive, and her flashback with Katherine's last scene yesterday was superb.
The rest of the show is ABSURD. Chloe is back and it really feels like she is a dead woman walking already. Future murder mystery with Billy, Chelsea, Kevin, Mariah, Natalie, and Sharon(they'll find a way to make it happen) as suspects perhaps?
It would have made more sense for Adam to skip town again with Chloe back in town due to his guilt and wanting to spare anyone pain than this "Tell Chelsea I am in solitary" lie. Don't even get me started on the other Newmans either, it was painful to watch. I noticed someone tried to write rational dialogue today but it still failed miserably.
Yeah, the show right now is a lot more interesting that it was there what 2007-2009? Oh boy it was so bad I quit watching between Brooke's back to back date rapes (one setup by Stephanie!), sperm egg switcheroos, Phoebe's death, Betty White's death on the beach, Taylor married a horse etc, the character that was Constantine etc. It was really awful. I've just started back watching regularly after just being an occasional viewer for a few years but the show has gotten a lot better it was at its worst. It took Brad to freshen the show up back in late 2011 but as always B&B is a very bipolar show. When a story is good the show its edge of your seat must see TV when a story is bad it's completely insufferable, unbearable, change the channel time
That's a good point since just about all the Jack/Phyllis scenes have been pretty awkward as well. There was a great moving moment back in May right after they first slept together where Billy was professing his desire for her but Phyllis was terrified and confused, unfortunately the show didn't capitalize on that moment that was nearly perfect right down to the haunting indie music used in the background. That was a pivtol moment but like I said I said TPTB didn't use them right together
This affair had been in the works since last Oct/Nov and most likely had gone full steam ahead with Jenkins still in the role had he not stepped down. Otherwise I'd suspect we would hear snide comments about Phyllis sleeping with Grandpa Billy or something that effect(I can't fault a miscast Jenkins, especially since both Walton Tognoni spoke extremely highly of him). I never watch GH so I can't comment but so far Thompson has had good chemistry with Tognoni and so far has done his best work with the Fiona dayplayer and then Chrisell Stause's character. However at the end of the day we're expected to see Thompson's Billy go back to the black hole of Heinle's Snoretoria? It's the freaking asinine bad writing not the acting that is dragging this show down every day.
It really is badly hypocritical. It really drags down the entire initial fun that Billy and Phyllis was now the affair is becoming mind numbing.
BTW Jess Walton shared this on her FB page, there's a nice cast photo too although I was surprised to see Catherine Bach in the photo: http://www.people.com/article/young-restless-celebrates-43-years-11000-episodes?xid=socialflow_twitter_peoplemag
it's like Victor using Patty and Marco meets Skye's death in the volcano story. Yes this story is THAT FOUL. Victor's "Oops my bad but you did need a lesson" to Adam reminds me of Sharon "understanding" of why Victor had to plead the 5th at her trial. Can't make this [!@#$%^&*] up and it makes me want to vomit.
November sweeps: Victor is suffering from kidney failure and is released from prison since he is dying. Adam is finally released from prison when he is exonerated for Constance's murder by Victor making a deathbed confession. Chloe is enraged and attempts kill Adam with a gun while he visits Victor. Chloe opens fire but Victor uses the last of his strength to cause the bullet to ricochet and end up striking Chloe killing her. Esther is angry her daughter was used by Victor but agrees to donate Chloe's kidney to Victor since she is a match. Adam, Chelsea, and the rest of the Newmans deem Victor a hero and all is forgiven and forgotten. Victor recovers and stays out of jail thanks to his deed of saving Adam.
Oh did I call/spoiler the ending of this story already!
18 days in and it still feels like torture. June was awful and July hasn't been much better. Just glancing at the spoilers for this was a turn off. Adam's story has been utterly ridiculous and excruciating to watch. Sharon is crazy part 18 is horrible to watch. Everyone is being wasted, no energy, and we have Nikki praising Darth Victor again ugh. Even Billy and Phyllis aren't even fun anymore. Sure we have Jill back but to pair Billy back up with Snoretoria?? Please spare us!
Goddard's been barely on at all this year I think his entire ep count is less than 20 episodes for the entire year. Possibly due to his accident but Goddard is dispensable and Lily could easiler be paired with someone else. I'm not sure how Cane and Lily ever developed a small cult following in the first place.
So let me get this right, Grambo saves the day and offers to make everything going on come to a stop. Of course everyone is going to be thankful and grateful so they forgive his past deeds. Really?!!? I know the storyline logic is has been horrendous as of late but this is just some asinine shitty schlock!
Last time I felt someone actually was actually putting in the effort to even try was when Josh Griffith was at Y&R until he fucked it up big time with the Summer paternity debacle turning a "wrong made right" into another "Sharon is off her rocker again!" story.
