    I was only interested in Stephanie up to the mid-90s or so. Brad Bell made her a grotesque caricature. I still remember sitting their laughing and laughing in the awful scenes where she confronted Brooke at Big Bear and had a stroke. For me the best of B&B was always Sally, and Caroline (the first one). And Brooke up to the mid-90s.

    Jeff Zucker boasted about how much Trump has done for them. They've only ever pretended to dislike him. It's one of many reasons I avoid that network.

    ^ Wow. I've always given CNN the benefit of the doubt, but this proves what so many here have said. That network is a sellout for ratings.

    Let's just throw him a kegger for his 25th and be done with it (and with him).
  8. I really don't see many foreign markets interested In Days. It's dying in it's home territory and it would be near impossible to have new viewers be able to jump into the show , plus those barebone production values would hardly be appealing. Maybe some smaller networks might take it on at bargain basememt prices to fill up airtime...and foreign markets would require subtitling - is that cheap and easy to do?

    Agree with many of the sentiments here. For me, B&B was never on the level of Y&R, GH, ATWT, but it was fun watchable "smut" up until the early 2000s. The problem was that B&B was heavily dependent on (often near incestuous) romance based drama, occasional fashion business drama, and Brooke being a slut. Not much plot diversity there. Amazingly it's still #2 in the ratings, and still boasts better production quality than that of DAYS or GH. As for why it's still #2 IDK, the show has been in the gutter for a while now. Stephanie was the Erica Kane/the Viki Lord of the show and now that she's gone the show is suffering. Her antagonistic relationship with Sally, Sheila and of course Brooke played well for years. The one thing B&B did right though was sticking to the 30 min format. At least it's easier to produce 19 mins worth of content 5 days a week with a smaller cast, stretch plots, and maintain decent production values. Favorite scene: Sheila taunts Stephanie about marrying Eric (1993):

    That post-sex scene with WilSon was HORRENDOUS. There is zero chemistry of any kind between haggard Will and bloated Sonny. Just awful writing and acting, and don’t get me started on the frigid pursed-lip kisses.

    A nondescript episode of RHOBH except it was clear that the Housewives were laying the groundwork to slaughter LVP in this episode. The lunch between Doritos, Erika and Rinna was telling. Previously, they’d never have endured a lunch with Doritos but now they do? Transparent. Kyle crying about her kids growing up. Christ. Haven’t we seen this storyline two or three times already? Move on, Kyle, menopause is around the corner, get ready to cry real tears over that one. PK and Doritos are so fake in their scenes listing who would be invited. That was producer set up to the max. LVP and Giggy. Lord. First the brother, then the Giggster? No wonder she looks like she’s about to crack at all times.

    Yes! that scene use to be around... A lot of the lines Katherine and Jill would spew out always make me laugh!

    Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    This week was boring as hell for BH! I felt last season it was dry because this cast just was missing something and with Denise I feel the same way. She feels more like a friend if anything. Of previous housewives who could’ve given it spark, I feel Eileen or Kim would’ve been helpful, but overall they need to cut at least two people next season and bring in strong new blood. These women have allowed their personas to become too controlled and as a result you get a bland show. Personally (and I know it wouldn’t happen) I’d get rid of Dorit and Erika. Bring two new wives with money who will actually showcase their real lives. More than anybody they are so controlled about what they present and it just rings false.

    One LOL moment was when Esther was on a health food kick and Brock snuck into the mansion a bucket of fried chicken. Does anyone else remember that?

    Totally. I often see Y&R very unfavorably compared to, say, a Nixon soap in terms of humor, and I remember laughing out loud at Y&R a LOT growing up.

    I know Y&R is more of a serious soap, but they always did humor well. It's more subtle then say...DOOL

    Yeah, whatever on JM and SC. We already got Nick reminiscing about his various lovers with Julianne Morris, Jennifer Gareis, and others returning... that was for his 20th, right? I do wish Sharon’s mom Doris was still around. No question... EB will get one and deservedly so given his stature. It’ll be interesting to see what they do for PB.

    I hope they do...and maybe episodes like this that get positive feedback from the fans will encourage them to do so. I'm almost positive they would do one for EB, at least.

    I'm hoping Eric gets a similar episode for his 40th anniversary next year like Melody got. My biggest soap wish is to see Eric's first episode.

    Ok. That was HYSTERICAL. Y&R was so often hilarious. I love how Mamie recoils in horror. Y&R did those Skinemax scenes better than anyone.

    Oh you know there will be! but I'm more looking forward to the latter 2 then the 1st two.... Jess Walton and Tracey Bregman should have gotten special episodes for their anniversaries.
