  1. I just don't like his "Oh, I'm so quirky and bubbly" personality and the song is nothing I would give a second listen to. It's too chaotic, hectic and disjointed for my taste. But we'll see ... I didn't like Lena either Meanwhile ... Ireland:
  2. Germany's entry ... I'm so embarrased for my country.
  3. Episode Counts: February 2021 GZSZ Total episodes: 20 01. Thaddäus Meilinger (Felix Lehmann) : 15 02. Gisa Zach (Yvonne Bode) : 14 03.

  4. I fear this will be another bottom 5 placing for Spain ... the song goes nowhere. So far I only like Norway's entry, although it was better in Norwegian. The English lyrics sound a bit clumsy. Btw, the official youtube channel has started uploading videos highlighting each countries' past entries. So far, 5 countries have been featured:
  5. I guess they originally had different plans for Moritz including a "real" relationship with another guy, but had to change storylines due to Covid-19. When he joined the show, he was supposed to "turn a straight guy's head". So now he's kind of floating around with no strong ties to any of the other younger characters. It was the same on AWZ last year ... they had to abruptly stop the Chiara/Ina relationship because they couldn't film intimate scenes between the two actresses and they wanted to tell the story differently. While Chiara was still used in the figure-skating storylines
  6. While it's not a soap per se ... I just started binge-watching "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" (We, the Children of Berlin Zoo Station), an Amazon Original. The series is based on the 1978 autobiographical book and 1981 movie of the same name (the English title is "Christiane F.") and follows the lives of teenagers Christiane, Stella, Babsi, Alex, Benno and Michi in West Berlin in the 1970s. They all come from broken homes and descend into a downward spiral with drugs, prostitution, rape, murder etc. The show is quite disturbing, but also very moving and it has some good acting.
  7. I finished season 1 last night. While the show was definitely worth watching and the overall look is stunning, the story was a bit too thin and superficial for my taste. We didn't even get to know half of the main characters and their backstories – which is no surprise because you can't write for 20 main and 10+ supporting characters in a span of 8 episodes. I also find the casting quite off in some instances. With the exception of Anthony and Eloise, the Bridgerton children didn't hook my interest whatsoever because I just find them bland and soulless (yes, also Daphne). They we
  8. She'll be gone for another 3 months soon because the actress takes part in "Let's Dance" (German version of "Strictly Come Dancing") I'm not sure yet because these two characters have been gone for so long ... they'll probably be two completely new people. However, a resurgence of the Weigel family is badly needed as they have always been the core family of the show. And yes, Chris returned from the army in the show's opening episode. These were the original portrayers Cecilia Kunz and Oliver Bootz ... they were pretty, flawless 90s people.
  9. However, Laura showed up on Beverly Hills, 90210 one year later, so I doubt that she and Spelling were on bad terms when she left Melrose Place. She was also reportedly one of the highest-paid television actors when she did her guest arc on 90210. I think she was just done with Melrose Place because they had stopped using Sydney efficiently. I remember one particular interview she did when season 4 premiered and she just looked so unhappy and tired.
  10. Yes, the Sunny stuff happened in the spin-off "Sunny – Wer bist du wirklich?". They did a special flashback episode on GZSZ to summarize the events that happened on the spin-off. Apparently, the spin-off was quite successful – I haven't watched it, though. Meanwhile, UU is bringing back two characters from the distant past: Chris Weigel and his wife Corinna Weigel, née Bach. Both characters were part of the original cast back in November 1994. Played by Oliver Bootz and Cecilia Kunz, both Chris and Corinna were huge fan favorites. Chris is the oldest son of Wolfgang and Irene W
  11. As the World Turns (known as Jung und leidenschaftlich), Search for Tomorrow (known as Henderson) and Texas also ran briefly in Germany in the late 80s/early 90s.
  12. I think CTS, Heather, Laura Leighton and of course Marcia Cross were the best actors on the show and also had the most demanding scenes. Of the male actors, only Thomas Calabro was given enough material where he could shine. All the other male characters, perhaps except early Jake, were written as duds. I'd love to know which scenes resulted in Heather Locklear being nominated for a Golden Globe. I mean, she was nominated 4 times in a row between 94 and 97... Of course she was (and has always been) a talented actress, but I never thought she was great enough to be nominated for an
  13. I'd say that Alison and Jake were the ones who held the "gang" together. Alison was friends with Jane and Jo; and Jake was friends with Matt, Billy, Alison, Jo, Sydney, Jane (with the women when they weren't dating). Matt and Michael had some sort of love-hate friendship, starting in season 2, but the show didn't really utilize it well enough IMO. The others weren't really that close, for example Jane and Jo. I never understood why Jane and Amanda were suddenly good friends in season 7, when they didn't really share much screentime in the earlier seasons – and when they did, Amanda u
  14. In hindsight, I think the show's creative problems began when the producers started to put more and more focus on Amanda and began sidelining the other characters in the process. In season 1, Amanda was merely an obstacle in Alison and Billy's lives. In seasons 2 and 3, Amanda became entangled in many storylines, but the other characters were just as important (well, except Matt of course). By season 4, Amanda had become the show's figurehead and she and Peter were promoted as the show's supercouple. In turn, at that point the producers seemed to have given up on several other main
