  1. He's honestly not that bad. I am OK with him when I see him in late 80s/early 90s episodes. But you've explained it to yourself: This would once again, definitely, for sure, absolutely, be cartoon Jack all over again. 'Wacky hijinks' galore. Stupid comedy. Insufferable sh!t. 300%. 24/7. Once again he wouldn't work. Once again he'd die. Jennifer would grieve again. Oh my God, I'm going off to barf. With some of the characters (all?) in the current soap climate, it's a careful-what-you-wish-for!
  2. I have them too, which is why I am likely to give this a pass, unless I find out on sale for 30 bucks or something. Yes. Movie, miniseries, whatever. lol In any case, most of the show sucked too. That's surely not a reason why they wouldn't release it. I wonder if it's a rights things, or maybe they don't think it'll sell.
  3. Eeeh. Never writing him out was perhaps an exaggeration, but he's good looking, straight, male, and a character that can create problems and drama. He also fits the bad boy gone good-ish soap trope. Why would they throw that away? (Although soaps have done worse, of course). His chances of sticking around are not bad, at least. Wasn't that just a fake-out for a few episodes?
  4. That artwork actually looks really good. A little silly and OTT but that's totally on par with DYNASTY. And they're finally highlighting the women! But what a missed opportunity not to include the mini-series. I can't believe it's never been released.
  5. I can definitely see that. I don't think they'd ever write him out, unless he decides to leave, which is very likely. In any case, unless they kill him off in too permanent a way, he will always be able to come back.
  6. Hopefully they'll move him onto someone else. In all seriousness, he's worth keeping around -- the actor is decent and the character works.
  7. A thrilling second episode, full of highlights. I can't believe there's only 5 episodes left! So many unexpected returns... Melisandre, Hot Pie, Nymeria! The female-led war council was spectacular. I loved how they settled on a strategy and then Olenna was like, ignore all that! Be a dragon! So happy we got the tender Missandei and Grey Worm love scene I always hoped we'd get. Sam is determined to become a maester and disgust us every episode lmao But that man cutting into the pie and making us think it's pus coming out of Jorrah's flesh was inspired. Puke-inducing, but inspired. I cried when Arya learned Jon Snow is in power. So of course he decides to go to Dragonstone just as Arya is going back to Winterfell. The truly unexpected thing was Arya and Nymeria seeing each other again. Maisie did phenomenal work in that scene. She's got an Emmy nomination, that's for sure. I was so happy when Jon appointed Sansa responsible while he was gone. That look she gave him, and the happiness in Brienne's reaction... I really like that they upped the ante with the Lannisters actually having a way to fight back against the dragons. And that unexpected final battle. Truly, unbelievably stunning. Some movies wish they could pull that off. I did not expect Reek to come back, but of course -- you do not simply get over the horrendous torture Theon went through. I hope this is the beginning of him finding even more of his strength. Those moments of a psychotic Euron (I guess he's not all talk) laughing next to a betrayed Yara were superb. Also, I think it's interesting how they fulfilled one of my wishes (to see the damn sand snakes gone) but they subverted it -- as one by one, they found gruesome death in the hands of Euron, I felt bad and then worse. Those were horrible deaths.
  8. Man, I don't know. This sounds like a really bad idea. They might have put together a great script, but is this really the concept you want to go with? Hmmm. "“Confederate” chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War. The series takes place in an alternate timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution. The story follows a broad swath of characters on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone – freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate and the families of people in their thrall." The reaction is already vitriolic. I will try to reserve judgment, but I really don't think creating an alt-universe show where slavery continues is the way to go.
  9. yas! We could cut her some slack, though, since she's leading to Ross running around the village naked.
  10. Since no one bothered starting it! The Sheila/Charlie stuff is hilarious. Him commenting on Sheila having the latest gadgets and Sheila explaining what gesticulating means. That ending with Eric throwing the glass after Sheila told him she thinks Ridge and Quinn are having an affair was great. And they're using so many of the show's classic cues now that Sheila's back. SO good. Also good, Thomas challenging Forrester. It feels classic B&B. Fode has really become much more natural. I hope he continues to nurture it, especially since the timing is great now that he has amazing chemistry with Sally.
  11. What in the blazing hell are you all talking about???? James Hyde looks great. The fυck? The styling is perhaps a little OTT for a 54 yo man, but still... And his skin tone has always looked like that, even on PASSIONS.....
  12. On this rainy Monday, July 24, 2017, some fuzzy cuteness to start us off!
  13. The place for our Hot Guy of the Day Something to feast our eyes on and forget our troubles, even for a little bit. Unless you vehemently object? Sunday, December 06, 2015
  14. And, apparently, that big country is also Middle Eastern! Definitely. If MF is given the right material, she'll excel. Yes. They don't have to wait until the episode airs LMAO. Not only can you watch it as it's being taped, you can watch the whole thing before it's edited, as it is being edited, and right after. The problem is, either the writers don't (maybe because they have to churn out 125 scripts a week) or the producers watch it and often don't find issue with it until viewer reaction hits.
  15. God bless you, Emmerdale. God bless you.
  16. OK, but I wasn't talking about her wanting Justin. Just doing doppelganger stuff not really being her style.
  17. Just like cancer, it spreads.... Aidan having a secret while Eva has a secret too and Adam blackmailing them both separately and secretly is so much fun!
  18. God, yes, it's all so stupid, but entertaining and much more interesting! Here we go again -- casting a Middle Eastern man as Greek. His whole accent isn't even right. He's not even pronouncing Kiriakis correctly -- and he's Greek! And I'm laughing so hard at the sign on the door that doesn't quite mean what they think it means. LMAO. Why the HELL is Kate wearing the same blouse she wore during a food fight? Is the budget this broke? Couldn't they have Koslow wear one of her own blouses? I mean, I can still see a little yellow from the food on that blouse!!! I am SO enjoying the Hattie/Anjelica stuff. I don't know a whole lot about Anjelica but even I can tell this is random for that character. Still, he's giving good, beloved actresses (Marlena, Bonnie, Anjelica) some real enjoyable things to work with. Bonnie seeing Hattie for example was so much fun. And I love the little bits of comedy ("It tells you you're hungry or you're horny" "It's the part that processes emotions" "That's what I said" or something like that) and then not knowing which door. Dario and Chad have really good adversarial chemistry. Dare I say it? The DAYS staple of a character taking off RIGHT as they are about to be written out seems to be striking again. And they've added more moments of interest, like Andre being impressed by Katie (a new connection!) and Chad turning to leave but looking back, knowing something's up. Finally, some character... some space to breathe! Even Marlena gets to be awesome: "You don't seem mad at me" "I raised Sami!" Paul pushing Xander against the cabinet was so homoerotic Always good to see that prime Australian beef LMAO
  19. October 1998 A jam-packed month. Phyllis and Diane have their first catfight ever but put it aside when Michael comes home and tells them he was kidnapped. "I did it because I love you!" Phyllis admits later. "I wanted you to pay attention to me!" Classic Phyllis stuff. Katherine begins to crumble under the pressure of Jill's attempt to take over the Chancellor estate. Ditzy Esther is so worried she sets the kitchen on fire. It's all Jill needed -- she takes Katherine to court for an emergency hearing and wins. Katherine is ordered to leave the Chancellor estate until a decision is made about the case while Jill looks on triumphantly. Callie schemes to secure a singing waitress gig at Gina's. While Gina refuses to pay her as a singer, and therefore get involved in her fight with Trey, Callie gets the chance to show off her voice to the citizens of Genoa City. Victor is convinced to move back into the penthouse and call Diane's bluff. While Victor is pretending to be back with Diane, Nikki gets to have a lot of fun disguising herself and having nasty office sex with Victor. Victor fake-romances Diane and promises "the kind of evening only I can deliver." Diane agrees to the divorce and barfs. Jack and Phyllis' flirtation begins in earnest, and he calls Phyllis "Red" for the first time. Victor gets a shock when Brad returns to town -- he wants to work with the legend that is Victor Newman again, he says. While in Denver, months and months of scheming, seduction, and fantasy come to fruition as Nicholas and Grace sleep together... only for Sharon to surprise Nick with her arrival. He sleeps with her right after sleeping with her best friend. Philip the Terror returns, but brings with him his sexy soccer coach, Brett. Brett has an interest in writing and in Nina. How wonderful that the show allows Nina to be beautiful and sexy, and has hunky men interested in her, instead of condemning her for not being a size zero. You'd never see that in today's soaps, except as a joke. When Sharon overhears Grace and Nick talking, she finds out they had sex. In a state of despair, she walks out into the street and is hit by a car. As the month comes to an end, Victoria experiences abdominal pain and is checked into the hospital as a precaution. Katherine decides to fight -- and turns up at Michael Baldwin's doorstep. And Alice's got a new boyfriend -- that amazing, sensitive man named Al -- and is about to move in with him... unaware that, among her old things, is a file that will give her the answer to Cassie's whereabouts!

  21. Some fun tidbits on the album Kylie is recording and preparing to bless us with!
  22. Is there one for her? I figured we needed an official place for all things Kylie. What do you guys think of Light Years? I've had the singles for years but I just bought the album and looking forward to listening to it. Spinning Around was the first Kylie song I ever heard and I was instantly hooked. I still remember how often they played that video in summer of 2000.
  23. I LOVED Diane briefly talking to the doppelganger and saying that's not Cooper. The Harry situation is really saddening. The moment where Cooper's training instinctively kicked in was so great. He's still in there somewhere!
  24. I love it! The gay character/couple, Danai & Sonequa, all of it! ❤️
  25. Happy Sunday, July 23, 2017 y'al! Hope you've been making the most out of the weekend!
