I don't mind Vincent when he's used right. I do agree about Babe still surviving the axe when she should've been long gone after Abi was exposed for faking her pregnancy. Shakil ... meh. I don't mind him being the young male teen character (despite that hideous ponytail), but if he knocks up Louise or Rebecca, he can immediately go.
I haven't even bothered to watch EE in weeks though. It is too plot driven. I am agreeing with Leslie Grantham and John Altman when they declared the show is either no longer light or too PC. The show can tell all types of stupid crime plots, but couldn't even give us a proper gay romance.
I didn't care for Buster either but I've grown to love him and Kathy. I feel like with him exiting, this will tempt the writers to stupidly tossing Kathy back in Phil's orbit, which is what I don't want. I like Kathy being out of Phil's orbit. I wish they'd pull Sharon from his orbit too. Phil is a vortex of suck and great female character suffer at the hands of him.
I agree that all the other Carters can go minus Lee. He's the only other Carter minus Buster that I like. The rest need to go join Nancy on a world tour and never darken EE's doorstep again.
Shannon set her up last night. It was so obvious. Even Tamra had the same sentiments.
Shannon is gonna be so despised by the end of the season....
Plus, Vicki should've bitch slapped David when he had his finger in her face. It was disgusting. What I also find disgusting is that Meghan (in her blog) thought it was OK. Then again, I guess she's used to it. I'm sure Jimmy keeps his finger in her face all the time when he's scolding her ostrich neck ass.
IMO, they should've brought back a heap of people for Lisa in the final years of the show: Scott, Grant, Diana, Kirk, Brian....
I always felt that they should've made Stuart Damon a recast of Don and put him with Lisa. Totally wasted actor on a stupid mob role and story.
From the little I've seen of all three Andropolous men, Frank does seem like the least !@#$%^&*]-like. Or maybe b/c Maggie stood up to Frank in comparison to Kim and Betsy, who typically cowered to their men. Funny how they all seemed to be immensely popular during the time on the show but as times and morals change, so do people's opinions of them.
Why was Diana's restaurant struggling? Didn't Whit leave her a trust or anything?
John v. Dusty was so good. Bryggman and Bloom were believable in that scene. Why was Dusty so angry though? I know it has to do with more than John just grounding him. Did it have something to do with Karen?
I hope more '84 episodes get posted. I just love watching 80s ATWT even though it was a bit before my time.
