  1. I wish Doug would have been possessed for a bit longer than he was. It's been fun. The audience could have wondered about his Alzheimer's as he talks inappropriately to Kate in front of Roman, say something about Eli being Julie's grandson, etc.. I did think for a second that maybe the Devil transferred from Doug to Tripp. This could have worked too if it tied in Chanel, Ali, and Johnny. The Devil could have stirred up a few things among them and let them experience the situation first hand at the same time.
  2. I loved NF's run in '86 when Cecile was Queen and kidnapped Cass. Her runs after that continually went down in quality. I'm not sure all the writing changes helped or if they really knew Cecile. She was never really moved out of Cass's orbit and that's a shame. What about Senator Grant? Or bringing Peter Love back? She could have been woven into so many stories in a fun, manipulative way that social-climber Cecile was known as.
  3. I think Kin and Nancy Frangione playing off of each other could have been fun. Would have strengthened an already talented cast. Doubt his arrival would have done much for the ratings at that point tho.
  4. Nathan Nolan in my Milliken Mills novel series is absolutely written with JR in mind. (With his wife, Jackie, written as Alexis.) Pressing Matters (book one) and Last Will and Punishment (book two) available now. Finishing touches on book three being done now. https://maineauthorspublishing.com/pressing-matters/
  5. This has been said before but I'd love a conversation with Julie Osborn, Stephen Schnetzer, and Nancy Frangione. Maybe even throw in Linda Dano to all talk about their times together. Talk about Crystal Lake and Wallingford. Having the Cory kids would be great. Matt Crane, Sandi Ferguson, Judi Evans, Russell Todd. I'd be just as happy if Larry Lau and/or Cali Timmins came on. Where's Tom Eplin? Jake and any of his women. Any of the Marleys, Vickys, Paulinas, and Anna Stuart's Donna. He always seemed to have chemistry with any of the actresses. I'd love to hear what they thought of working with him.
  6. The way this Mariah story ended made the whole thing even worse. I was hoping all along that there was a red herring and the culprit would be revealed in the last seconds of the show (Friday cliffhanger). Too much to hope for evidently. This story may have seemed fine initially on paper, tying in all of these characters across the canvas, but the execution sucked bad.
  7. I hope they don't go the Finn/Paris route. Finn just got married and has been written as all in with Steffy. It would make no sense he'd wander that quickly/easily. Can't this show do anything besides triangles/affairs?? Speaking of making no sense, Eric doing a 180 with Quinn and not wanting to divorce her all of a sudden. WTH??? One would think with Sheila back, Eric would be even more insistent on less drama/chaos in his life and want away from these women. I know this is just a plot point to mess with Quinn/Carter, but still. They can't come up with some other kind of conflict to slow down Quinn/Carter?
  8. I've thought the last few episodes have been pretty decent. Although the constant talk about no drama and settling down, etc, was a bit overdone. Of course, that's never going to happen. I've found myself enjoying most of the scenes though without wanting to fastforward. For a show set around the fashion industry, it amazes me how poorly Ridge and Thomas are styled. Nothing about them looks "trendy". They look like they could have come from the 60's. Just putting them in a suit does not clean them up. Those in the fashion industry would realize that!
  9. Hey everyone. For any of those that are interested, I have been added as a contributing writer for the upcoming S4 of Restless Shores. Scandal, intrigue, and salaciousness 15 mins at a time! This is an audio podcast that releases a 15 min ep every Friday (Thurs at midnight) and is on S3. It's got clones, twins, blackmail, electric shock therapy, and lots more. If you're just looking for something that's pure fun, check it out. www.restless-shores.com
  10. Never been a fan. He can take years off if he'd like.
  11. I'm pretty sure it was not Philece's choice to leave. I still remember (when I was 10) how furious I was that Renee was found upstairs with a literal knife in her back!!! It made me hate DAYS for years and i refused to watch. Since AW was my daytime show, I was thrilled when she joined. She may not have been a great fit (especially with stupid writing that involved Donna and John, a very weak Donna) but I was so happy she was there, Always wanted her to join another show, but it never happened.
  12. Those lists are always subjective and the fact that Rachel is in the top two couples, as well as Jake in 3 and 4, make no sense. Either Mac and Rachel were the best Rachel pairing or Carl and Rachel. Personally, I can't accept both being a best couple. Same for Jake. I will never get behind Carl and Rachel. He terrorized and tried to kill Rachel and Mac several times. How can Rachel ever (suddenly) forgive him? I don't buy it. Jake and Marley were amazing in the beginning until they married and TE and EW left together as a couple. They were ruined after that. Once Marley was raped just to have EW later return with mental instability because of it, in my opinion, can never make Jake and Marley a "best couple". Jake and Vicky were a fave of mine. I do find it tough to believe she'd forgive him totally for Marley's rape but they were best friends as kids and knew each other for years. It would make sense that they had a sense of trust in each other. Vicky's best pairing though? No. That was Ryan and Vicky, imo. I'd put them above Jake and Vicky. But like others said: No Steve and Alice? Sally and Catlin? Sandy and Blaine? Gary and Josie?
  13. It's too bad she won't have a scene with Grant Show. I find it funny that I haven't seen anywhere a mention of the fact her and Grant dated once (before her marriage to Doug Savant). Always says former co-stars.
  14. Others might recognize Laura more recently for Pretty Little Liars. I wish more Melrosers would pop up as guest stints. Josie Bissett could be fun. I do agree with others that something needs to be done with Steven. He should be an integral part of the show. Fallon and Steven were always so close in the original and made a great sounding board for each other. It's missing.
  15. As Laura Leighton is my fave Melroser, I can't wait to check out how she's brought into this show. I'm secretly hoping that the ratings hit a high point and she becomes at least a semi-regular "guest star" ala Heather Locklear did for Melrose. I know. I'm dreaming.... I do find that the show overall has been much better. I'm definitely watching more.
  16. Although I don't put any stock in the Emmys like I used to, I have to say the show was decent. It was nice to watch an awards show that wasn't full of politics and grandstanding. Showing as many clips as they did was nice. I do wish some of the "milestones" had been memorable moments of storylines instead...but that's a personal opinion. I was even able to tolerate Sheryl and I can't stand her or anyone from The Talk.
  17. Since AW was/is my show, I watched this interview with skepticism. She likes to quickly say that she had nothing to do with Frankie Frame's death on the show, but if you are the EP you could step into story. Frankie may still have been attacked because story was plotted out in advance, but it could have been altered. Frankie could have not been so brutally attacked and then possibly "hid" out after the incident because she was afraid the killer would come back for her since she saw his face. Frankie could have lived. But there's no excuse for killing Ryan and Bridget. I know Michael Paul Valley left of his own accord, (wasn't there a tiff with the show in regards to his then girlfriend, Christine Tucci being let go?) but he didn't have to be killed. He could possibly have been persuaded back. Killing him ruined arguably one of the most popular couples on the show, Ryan and Vicky--after you just ruined Cass and Frankie. There's "mixing things up" and there's causing a train wreck. I'm not sure she knows the difference. I hated the pairing of John/Felicia on AW too. Maybe others liked it. I just didn't think it was written well! Felicia was made into a vial "other woman" instead of someone that organically got closer to a long-time friend while his wife was away. Yes, it gave Anna Holbrook and Linda Dano great scenes together but I found them hard to watch. I never agreed that Felicia would have ever done anything like that to Charlene after all Felicia had watched her go through with Sharly. Plus, it ruined John and Sharlene, another of the show's long-time couples, that seemed popular with most viewers. She's a big fan of Steven Bochco? It shows! She produces her shows like they're one hour shock episodes for ratings instead of a long-term, family stories. Just IMO.
  18. The second installment of my MILLIKEN MILLS novel series is now out. If interested, info here: https://bruceafleming.wixsite.com/bruceafleming?fbclid=IwAR2hpfUIUg3CfG7wpCYJAKQbnHtwRVwQWEleHshYviJoOJCZoHNHZWVIEEk
  19.  Happy New Year everyone. 

    Good things coming in 2021, like the second novel in my soapy Milliken Mills series. 

    Follow up to Pressing Matters.

      Happy New Year.

  20. Bitchy Bangs...haha. The only time I liked Adriana. I remember heavily disliking the AW triangle of Lisa/Jamie/Vicky. Seemed like it went on forever and I found Lisa so damn dull. I could never figure out why Jamie was interested in her to begin with. Of course, I'm probably biased to Vicky because Anne Heche just rocked that role and is one of my all-time faves of the show.
  21. The character of Mary was brought in with a big story (as the not-so-dead) matriarch of the McKinnon family. Once Mary was back in Bay City and "settled" with Vince, she became boring. I also think that DA didn't draw in viewers to the show like NBC was hoping and was probably pushed to the side somewhat. Has anyone mentioned Kimberlin Brown's run on OLTL as Paige? I remember being excited that she was going to be on the show but she seemed to be on so briefly. Was she offered her job back at Y&R/B&B and that's why she left? Or was she unhappy with OLTL?
  22. At the end of AW's run, Marley was ruined as the crazy psycho that locked up Vicky. Seemed like it came out of nowhere. Marley had always been the sweet, innocent one. I get that Jake's rape of Marley could make the character an angry person after such violation....but all that time later? Why then?
  23. okay I'll play... Since AW is my fave show, I'd bring AW back (tho Proctor and Gamble would never let it happen!) I would do it as a "next generation" type reboot though. The characters I'd bring back as grown-ups: Ali Fowler (daughter of Amanda Cory and Sam Fowler) Steven Frame (son of Jamie Frame and Vicky McKinnon) Kirkland Harrison (Grant Harrison and Vicky' McKinnon) Bridgett and Michelle McKinnon (twins of Jake McKinnon and Vicky.) Dante Carlino (son of Joe Carlino and Paulina Cory Carlino) Jasmine Cory (daughter of Matthew Cory and Lila Winthrop) Cory and Elizabeth Hutchins (twins of Carl Hutchins and Rachel Cory Hutchins) I'd focus on Cory Publishing again and have many of them (that are the Cory relatives) be employed there trying to be the top in command. Maybe Kirkland, Bridgett, and Michelle have a beef with the Corys, have their own company that is in competition. Cory Hutchins could be secretly in a "love" triangle with twins Bridgett and Michelle and be the Romeo/Juliets of the show until it all blows up. The parents could be possible "guest stars" on the show in a recurring basis. Sandra Ferguson. Judi Evans. Tom Eplin. Ellen Wheeler (as Vicky since Jensen is probably unavailable...), Matt Crane. Not sure if Vicky Wyndham or Anna Stuart would make appearances as grandparents but would love it!
