  1. B&B September 10 Discussion Thread

    ^^ Yes, really. I've seen similar things with other famous people when they've had unfortunate pictures taken and then being compared to all sorts of creatures, monsters, animals. So I just saw this as another one.
  2. B&B September 10 Discussion Thread

    When I wrote my original post I had no idea that Winsor had made racist remarks elsewhere. All I had to go on was the picture that was posted, and his tweet about being open to being sexually harrassed in exchange for a job. Had I known then about his other activities I would have looked differently upon the whole thing. As it was I didn't find anything racist about the picture. Without the context of his other remarks I interpreted it more in a political and sexist way (which of course is bad enough in itself). That's why I made the comparison to ridiculing Trump (or Hillary Clinton, or Paul Ryan, or Bernie Sanders or any other similar person) and that's why I felt that there was an overreaction. If we're open to ridiculing some people because we don't share their political views then we must accept that people ridicule the people whose political views we do share. And if we accept that men are ridiculed for their appearance then we must accept that women are fair game too. With that said, racism is not, and should never be, acceptable, and I would not have made my original post if I had interpreted the photo as that, and if I offended anyone I apologize. It was not my intention.

    I think Brooke could have filled Stephanie's place as the matriarch if Brad Bell had let her grow up and assume that position. (Or maybe it's KKL who doesn't want to let go of the romantic storylines for fear of being seen as old). Naturally she wouldn't have been able to replace Stephanie completely and she would have been a different type of matriarch, but I think it could have worked.

    I didn't think you were.
  5. B&B September 10 Discussion Thread

    Like I said, I'm not defending Winsor, and I haven't being following whatever else he has said or tweeted. It's just not that uncommon for people to criticize when politicians/actors/etc they like are being subjected to ridicule on social media, while having no problem with politicians/actors/etc they don't like being subjected to the same ridicule. That's all I meant to say. I'm certainly not defending anyone being racist, and that includes Winsor Harmon.
  6. B&B September 10 Discussion Thread

    I'm not defending Winsor or his tweet, but I think the reactions here would have been slightly different if it had been a picture mocking Donald Trump or anyone else people dislike.
  7. Guiding Light discussion thread

    I never saw Ellen Dolan as Maureen so I cannot compare her and Ellen Parker in that role. I just want to say that the exact same thing that many hold against Dolan is why I loved her as Margo on ATWT. She wasn't the warm, maternal type. She was a career woman and as such I felt she was a welcome change from the norm. I also think she was/is a fine actress who did the best she could with the horrible writing that she (and the rest of the show) got during its final years. With strong writing she was certainly capable of giving memorable performances. Her work in Margo's rape story and the story with Casey's euthanasia is proof of that.
  8. 'Hair Models' on soaps

    The first examples that comes to mind are Clayton Norcross and Teri Ann Linn as the original Thorne and Kristen Forrester on B&B. Now, Ronn Moss is hardly a master thespian, but the two "actors" (and I use the term loosely) that were hired to portray his siblings made him almost look Shakespearean by comparison. Carrie Mitchum, the original Donna Logan on the same show was hardly award-worthy either, but in her case I think her surname had more to do with her hiring than her looks. At least that must have been the case because it can't have been due to her acting skills, which were minimal.
  9. B&B August 2018 Discussion Thread

    Seriously?! Come on! It's only a tv-show. Wishing death upon someone is really taking things a bit too far. Much too far!
  10. Soap Families Who Actually Look Related

    I think Katherine Kelly Lang and Justin Torkildsen looked a lot like mother and son when he was playing Rick on B&B. On the other side of the scale was Kyle Lowder, who was completely miscast in terms of appearance. He resembled neither KKL nor John McCook, his on-screen parents.
  11. Days actor exit!

    Really? It seems to me all they do is extend their bad storylines. Granted, they haven't had a good storyline to extend for years and years so maybe that's why Brad Bell has become a little confused and continously extends his bad ones.....
  12. LATEST RATINGS: July 30 - August 3, 2018

    Fixed! I think the days of rising ratings are over. It's a slow, but relentless slide towards ratings that are so low that the shows will be cancelled. They're all living on borrowed time, and the end is inevitable.
  13. It's fascinating how he can talk so much and have absolutely nothing interesting or substantial to say. If he were to leave showbusiness he could have a promising career ahead as a politician.
  14. B&B August 2018 Discussion Thread

    If Brad Bell thinks this Steffy/Liam/Hope crap is a new version of Taylor/Ridge/Brooke then he's delusional. Ridge may have been wishy-washy but he didn't bounce from Taylor to Brooke and back over the course of a few days, it took years. And while RM, KKL and HT may not have been master thespians they were practically Oscar-worthy compared to SC, JMW and AN.
  15. Days: August 2018 Discussion Thread

    The writing was much better back then. I don't think anyone currently writing soaps have the talent to pull off something like that now.
