Just watched today's episode. Loved the flashbacks, esp. from the 1980s. One of the best episodes in a long time.
Can't believe they showed the clip that lead up to Victor and Jill's brief relationship (and for years the speculation that it resulted in Jill becoming pregnant w/ Billy, which thankfully did not happen). Jess Walton was rocking that big ass hair in the early 1990s
I would've liked to have seen clips from Eric's first episode, which I don't believe has surfaced anywhere online. I think Victor and Katherine's first meeting was shown once, maybe during Jeanne Cooper's tribute episode?
Did anyone else notice a bit of a resemblance between Matt and Adam? That Miller/Newman DNA is strong haha.
Yeah that transition into Conboy really broke the show for good. Rauch had finally gotten kind of back to basics, and there was a lot of good stuff and characters in the show. Then Conboy decimated it all pretty quickly. Ben being a prime example.
I’ve never watched B&B. But when you read about Brooke’s history, she is nothing like the character Bill Bell wrote.
And I have seen lots of clips of both her and Stephanie. And neither one of them were as great as when Bill was writing the show. Sometimes I would see scenes of Flannery from Bradley’s era as HW and it’s just awful. Even she can’t make it seem like good work anymore.
They've cast Keegan Allen as Walker's gay brother, which pleasantly surprised me. I like the description of their family backstory/dynamic and hope they use it a lot instead of making him a background character.
Guiding Light, I wouldn't even say the Clone or San Cristobal broke it. It showed some sign of hope under Taggart/Cullton and it brought me back as a viewer, but somewhere between Ben being a serial killer because he was molested and Jonathan & Tammy against the world/the Coopers taking over the show, the show I once loved was dead and gone.
