  1. DAMN COOKIE (also, did she say she had a miscarriage? Uh-oh...)
  2. Actually - as much as I like to rant about Aaron Spelling (and I rant a lot) he was decent with giving his 90s shows what could serve as series finales - even with 2000 Malibu Road he got Lisa Hartman back to do an ending narration of what happened next for the European airings. Hell, even Savannah mostly wrapped itself up, even if you can see plot threads that could be picked up for season three. Joan's part in Pacific Palisades is very weird - she first appears, then disappears and then reappears a few episodes later. It makes me think that when the show bombed (and it bombed hard) they were far into production, so they went back and re-filmed parts of the first episode where Joan appears and then didn't really add her to the scripts until later episodes. I almost want to rewatch her first episode to see if this is noticeable as it's my suspicion.
  3. Pacific Palisades have been uploaded on YouTube and "hot mess" doesn't even begin to desribe it. I feel like me and I feel like me and @Melroser would rant about this good because... yeah. Hot ass mess. Fiona Hughes character is literally just flower arranging. Cuz that's important. What are dem flowers gonna do else? I'm rolling my eyes and this is episode six!
  4. Woah, I said in the prime time soap thread that I finally got my VHS tapes from my parents and just found a tape with an Aremid episode - Austin promises to be there for Sami during her pregnancy (RIP Will), Carrie confides in Marlena that Sami went to the abortion clinic, Stefano has amnesia and Jennifer is saved from a smoke-filled house by Jack (Mark Valley) and look, there's Peter. Why on earth haven't he made a (recasted) comeback? Remember when we thought these episodes were low-budget? It basically looks like a Hollywood production now...
  5. I just watched the series finale of Hyperion Bay and it pretty much wrapped up the show. There's some plot threads that could've been picked up in a potential season 2. I also notice that Bart Johnson (who died in episode 14) is listed as being in all episodes on every episode guide despite not appearing since then but I guess that shows how popular this show actually was when it first aired. The thing that struck me when I watched episodes 14 through 17 it's how weak the casting was. Even Mark-Paul Gosselaar is weak on this show.
  6. I've just gotten a whole bunch of VHS tapes from my parents (FINALLY) and I'm impress myself a bit with how much god-damn crap I recorded during the late-90s/early-00s. I'm currently trying to find stuff that's worthy to attempt to transfer from VHS to my 'puter once I get the technology to do so. I'm currently watching the Frank Southified Hyperion Bay and it's really lame. Carmen Electra is trying her best to La Locklear it up, but the Go-Go Dancer doesn't work at all in the role. She's absolutely laughable! Add that the show itself is so zzzz. And Cassidy Rae, despite her special billing, is still as interesting as cardboard as she was on Models, Inc. Oh, a guy fell from a building now and I. Don't. Care. Screw you Nelson (Bart Johnson), football star. I guess he was a casualty of the "retooling". I also found the CPW episodes 13/14 - apparently the European version of these episodes are different than the ones aired in the US (even as they eventually aired on a small station in New York in the early 00s) as they cut out the Nicki storyline (they were phasing the character out) and added some scenes from episode 13 to episode 14 in an attempt to make the transition smoother from "Central Park West" to the last 8 episodes as "CPW".
  7. Emma and Julia are characters that would work today. I love how Emma ends up as the more stable daughter. Plot twist!
  8. If I were her, I would've kept cashing that paycheck until the bitter end. It's not like she's going to get major roles outside soaps at this point in her career.
  9. Dynasty is a very weird show in the sense that they managed to be both overwritten and underwritten. To be fair, that's a form of accomplishment in itself.
  10. Dear Lord you had to get me thinking about the reunion and there's just so much wrong with it, but for starters: - Sammy Jo regressing into Trampy Ho of season five. The direction Sammy Jo was going in season nine would've had her become more and more like early Krystle - a good person with a bite to her. - The obvious attempt at bringing the show into "the 90s" - hello Krystle staring at a ceiling fan! Such a horrible attempt to channel Twin Peaks. - The dumb-ass catfight. In all honesty, Krystle had so many reasons to beat the living crap out of Alexis, yet they chose to have her fight over... jewlery? Really, writers? - Kirby getting together with her rapist and portrayed the relationship with Adam as "tru wuv" - come on. I don't mind Kirby coming back and in fact I'm one of the few Kirby fans, but they really needed to adress the relationship for how messed up it was. If anyone should've come back as Adam's end game it was Dana, but she was in the unsuccessful seasons I guess... - Fallon regressing as a character. - ROBOKRYSTLE. - Recast Adam. Really? - Barely adressing anything from the series finale and the outcome of it. I could go on and on and on about how terrible it is. In fact I'm sure I deserve some sort of financial compensation for the amount of therapy I've needed to properly deal with the trauma of it all...
  11. Oh, I like to check in on DAYS every now and then and why exactly are Jenn and Eric a thing? I don't mind it but it seems incredibly... random? Plus his new haircut is stupid. Let's talk about that. I like Rhonda from Melrose Place just fine as Valerie.
  12. Pretty much. The issue is, as usual, that the people behind these decisions obviously doesn't watch the show and I wonder if they really actually like it. They act in desperation when it comes to renewal time. I fully expect Ron to be fired in 2018 and for another massive plan to SAVE DAYS. It's gotten beyond parody at this point - surely someone has to have a compilation of the SAVE DAYS covers for the past 15 years...
  13. Just as a side note, the entire series of Paper Dolls is on YouTube for those who are interested. Just search "Paper dolls episode 1" and it should pop up. It has exactly the issues that I thought of it initially - too many characters and an initial lack of focus. How on earth they could continually have failed to do a prime time soap about models is beyond me as it seems like it should write itself, especially in the 80s/90s - beautiful women in a cramped enviroment that act catty. Why this and Models, Inc failed to grasp that basic concept is beyond me. Well, not really in Models Inc part since Charles Pratt Jr wrote it...
  14. Don't get me started on the reunion - there's so much "nope" and crap going on that I just tend to pretend that Dynasty ended with Alexis going off the balcony. In a way weirdly think the season nine finale works well as a series finale - hey, things weren't going to end happily for the Carringtons! Just the fact that they watch home movies of famous scenes in the reunion... who actually filmed that in the show universe? Did Blake have cameras filming all of Alexis and Krystle's catfights for his own enjoyment? What a perv! And that the Shapiros actually thought that it was going to reboot the show is obvious so it doesn't *really* give a sense of closure, so it's just a failure all around.
