  1. Fuller House

    To me, I don't like that most of the original cast (Jesse, Joey, Danny, becky,etc) are back so much. One episode per season would be nice.. But more then that and I forget this is Fuller House and not Full House.
  2. "Roseanne" revival in the works

    But I wouldn't exactly call that show a quality shoe. It had a mean spiritedness to it but maybe that's what constitutes as funny nowadays. Since Harris is coming from Chicago to Lanford, I'm wondering why unless she had to quit college because one or both of her parents were laid off.
  3. Y&R: September 2017 Discussion Thread

    The show will never be the way it was, it hasn't really been the same shoe since the late 90s...but at least in the early to mid 2000s, it still resembled the shoe of old..just a more faster paced version of it. I'm still curious to see where the stories will be by the end of October when Mal takes over. It seems like the Graham story is finally getting some focus and I'll wonder how the Alice and sex ring story will progress in the next few weeks. At least Sharon is focusing on something other then a man for the most part. Jill, we have to accept will never be back full time...so I say when Jess walt9n is available...to just film all her scenes in a block and edit them in. That way her presence will matter and make more impact. It's funny that Jill not being on is a noticeable void..but if Jack or Victor were absent..itbwouldnt be that noticeable. Shows that the show put their eggs in the wrong basket. Bill bell and kay Alden knew Jill was important hence her dominant presence till the mid 2000s.

    Whitney Cummings is a producer? Gosh, I guess the mea spirited tone the original took in later years will be in tact.
  5. Loving/The City Discussion Thread

    Shana was kind of like Cecile when she first came on...then fell in love and left town...only coming back once she lost her spouse and child...so she was tortured for awhile then she ran AE with Jack for awhile...then decided she wanted to be a mom...and fell in love with the father of the baby. Her character had a lot of shades and different phases she went though. The late 1991 episodes were written by the Mary Ryan M writer...but it didn't have an identity during this late 1991 period. I do think she was trying to reestablish the haves and havenots with the aldens and Rescotts...with Dinah Lee as the spoiler. It wasn't bad whatsoever...but it's non descript. She had three brief stints as headwriter..and she wasn't bad but w asnt good either. Some people are just not cut out to he headwriter..and I guess Mary Ryan M was one. It's a shame nowadays hacks like Higley, pratt,etc are given 1 or more years as headwriters when ok headwriters like Mary Ryan M get a few months at most at the helm. I will say I liked that she invented Giff as a bridge between the haves and havenots...and thought he and Gwyn worked as a couple. I do think she set up some good dynamics and plots with Dinah Lee being a brief spoiler for trucker and trisha...and that allowed months of story once she left.
  6. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Do you think RHOA will become NeNe's RHOA? I would have kept Where's as a friend of....it worked well for her because my fab thing about her is her talking head interviews..but she doesn't have much to bring to the table in terms of her day to day life. Porsha needs to go away. Why is she allowed to come back? RHONY...bethenny was great her first season back because I wondered how she would take to the new girls. She and carole clicked, she ignored Kristen, and ended up respecting Heather. Sadly, her return made the show think Heather was redundant...but I still think Heather could have worked with Bethenny back. They're not all that alike..tbh. RHOC...lydia gives Christians a bad name. While Shannon should do herself a favor and quit the show (compare her demeanor in early season 9 to now), Lydia has the same tendencies as Heather Dubrow...and not her good qualities either.
  7. Y&R: September 2017 Discussion Thread

    Leave Ashley as Brents child. I wonder if perhaps the fact that she and Graham have chemistry has made the show rethink the possibility of him being her half brother. They could make him a M ergeron and not alter the story whatsoever. So with a month left of Sallys reign, I'll be interested to see if Mal will carry on with whatever she was planning..or he will drop things, wrap them up right away, etc? In the past, new writers would wrap things up from an old regime..even carry it on and take stories in a different direction. I.E Marland did this when he took over GL and ATWT....and Nixon would do that whenever she would resume handwriting a show..etc.
  8. Loving/The City Discussion Thread

    Flynn lasted a good year or so...very tragic ending and caused a lot of angst for Carly...and then another change in regime happened and she was gone.
  9. Love of Life Discussion Thread

    For peeps who watched the show back in the day, which Betsy was their favorite?
  10. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    RHOC Shannon..best revenge is ignoring and moving on. If the triad of Shannon, tamra and Vicki return in season 13.. T amra will so ice out Shannon because she's like that...but this would be the one time is give Tamra a pass since Shannon is a small dose type of person. Rhoa: Sheree is a blonde in that promo pic?? I wish Atlanta would shuffle the cast...but they've been so many duds I can see why Nene was bought back...but is Porsha needed? Nope, she's redundant.
  11. Guiding Light discussion thread

    I recall in 1994, a vast majority of GL people got nominated...but as the quality of the show dwindled...so did the nominations. I truly think the clone story killed a lot of respect for the show. From what I recall, when KZ submitted the clone episodes for a nomination...the panel laughed. I think the Reba focus in the late 90s and thereafter helped kill the show. And i hated the final scene of the show was Josh and Reva. An insult to.the show.
  12. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    I'm sure if there is anything between Doritt and LVP..it probably won't explode till the actual season starts...cause u know that talking heads will reveal their true feelings.
  13. GH: Dear Shelly Altman wish list

    Dear shelley, Balance is key in life and in a soap opera. Give all the characters equal time and rotate them in and out of the back burner. Also, focus more on the hospital since it is called general hospital..not Mobs r us
  14. Twin Peaks

    Maybe season 4 could show that cooper did save Laura Palmer..and that we are seeing the new present day world...shich could easily explain why certain actors that have passed aren't back.
  15. AMC Tribute Thread

    Found some 1990 episodes from spring to summer, it seems like a show in transition. Was Trask/david/sharla/Melanie an attempt at recreating the glory years of the teen scene early 1980s? Natalie's personify gradually is watered down as 1990 moves forward. Erica caught between Jack and Travis? Erica and Jack were a horrid couple and don't get why they were kept together 9n and off till 2009. The new Angie isn't Angie whatsoever. Decent actress, but it's a different character. She plays Angie more passive and sweet while Debbie Morgan had backbone and confidence infused into Angie. Does this pat/Angie dating the same man last Long? I can see why Debbie Morgan jumped ship if this was the best the shoe could give her. Ceara circa 1990 is a blonde Erica Kane right down to her flirting with Jack.
