I also wanted to say, Kelly's eating disorder has been very well handled so far. I really liked that it started so simply: Kelly talked about loving being at the spa and that she didn't feel self-conscious about her body, but then all it took was one careless, thoughtless individual to mention working on Kelly's "problem areas" and the seed was planted. For once, the character truly felt like a teenager. For the next few episodes, there have been subtle hints of Kelly avoiding food, eating very little, etc. Very good.
Really funny that you'd bring this up, since in the last couple of episodes I watched (Season 3), these were mentioned/addressed. In one episode, Donna called Brenda her best friend. I was like, huh? Granted, Brenda and Kelly weren't really on speaking terms at that time.
At some point, Donna found Dylan at the Peach Pit and I was stunned those two characters were alone in a scene. It felt like they hardly knew each other. In the latest episode I watched, someone mentioned Donna and Dylan having nothing in common.
That she was for the first year or so- AND that of the entire cast over the years, she is the one that SB launched into legitimate stardom. It's actually a very telling story for actors that consider soaps to be a "training ground." With all of the cast turnover in those 9 years, SB only launched one actual star. Sure some actors that left did get work in other mediums, but the ratio when you factor in the ones that left to pursue greener pastures doesn't bode well for leaving a soap for fame and fortune.
Gosh I don't remember the first ones offhand- I'm sure it was SB-related since that what I was always searching for.
The ones that stick out are Harbor Cove on SB, Aqualand on SB, and the Sheila/Lauren catfight in the hospital. That catfight sticks out for me partially because the Traci/Lauren catfight during Brad's heart attack was also posted and I remember the same orderlies that broke up Sheila/Lauren also broke up Traci/Lauren. What's funny is those catfights were at least a few years apart.
Hearing the people upset about that new Good Doctor show made me watch some Freddie Highmore interviews and he really is adorable. I can see why he's o in demand, even if he was in that shameful, shameful Willy Wonka remake.
