  1. This show continues to be disappointing and look poor. Why the hell are all of these business meetings happening in a hotel room beside a bed?
  2. That is all we saw. All of this "what Nina did was SO wrong" stuff is melodramatic. All she said was "I'm not your mom's mom, thats not how we're related." Plus she apologized profusely to both that bullying banshee Carly and her wimpy son Michael. The kid is 2. He's not damaged for the rest of his life AND considering Carly's history with Michael and AJ she should be the last one lecturing someone on "confusing children." It would be one thing if Nina did it intentionally or maliciously but it didm't play that way at all and she was genuinely sorry so the overreaction was absurd. Maybe Nina should hang Michael on a meathook and they'd be more understanding
  3. This show had Summer find out Kyle had a child and he had been lying to her and Summer forgive him all in the same episode? Where is the drama? Seriously, who writes this way?
  4. Ehh, no I still root for Nina over Carly in this scenario. Though most of the time I root for anyone over Carly's loud and obnoxious behind.
  5. I only watch this show sporadically cause it stinks but is Phyllis basically a bartender or waitress now? Every time I see the show she is behind the bar serving drinks. What an odd turn for that character. I guess JG likes her being comic relief and nothing more but really.... Also can anyone explain to me why this show LOOKS so bad? Like why are all the sets small? The only part of Jabot we see is that tiny boardroom, all we see at Newman is Victor's office, half the cast lives in a hotel room, and most of the other scenes either take place in the lobby of that hotel where Phyllis bartends, that other place where Lola works and the coffeehouse. I get budgets are being cut but GH does not look nearly this bad. In fact GH looks downright plush compared to Y&R these days (even with GH's sets being way too dark)
  6. I actually do think early Bold was kind of bad. I mean the first year or two were rough but Bill admitted he didn't really have a plan - it was rushed and felt that way, he was kind of copying character and story from Y&R. Eventually it found its groove but even after its premiere I have articles where most soap mags called it basically enjoyable trash. I've always felt watching Bold, even when I enjoyed it, it was obvious Bell wasn't very passionate about the show and it was never going to be one of the great soaps. It would sometimes have great moments but it would never reach the highs that Y&R, GH, ATWT, AW and GL did. Even if Thudley hadn't made it as awful as it is I have a hard time believing that in the end Bold wouldn't have just be seen as the "not nearly as good" little brother to Y&R and a soap who has Y&R to thank for its ratings (which was kind of proven true during the pandemic when Bold returned without Y&R and their ratings were in the toilet until Y&R came back)
  7. What does Nick even do? Does he have a job? What does Phyllis do? Do either of them have homes? They seem to spend all their time in the lobby of that dumb hotel talking about Summer and Kyle or Victoria and repetitive flirting. Neither seems to have much of a purpose anymore. No significant jobs, no rivalries, no friends, no homes, nothing resembling a story.
  8. OMG, I forgot qbout Grayson's run on GH. Every scene of his was hilarious because he would overdramatize even the most mundane dialogue.
  9. Honestly? Slam me if you must but most Susan Flannery performances after like 1997. Talented as heck but man did I hate the ultraviolent ridiculous cartoon villain they turned Stephanie into. All subtletly was out the window in favor of screaming, yelling, punching, etc. The worst was Phyllis on Y&R when she lost that Phick kid. I don't know what MS was doing (and she goes OTT more often than not) but that miscarriage of "blueberry" was so horrible and such ridiculous scenery chewing.
  10. 2002 was the end of it being at least generally watchable. But if I am being honest I actually think the last time it was good was in early 94 maybe? This show has flat out stunk for so long though. Well over 15 years of it being as close to atrocious as it gets. There might be a decent spot here and there like the Avants but this show has been pretry horrific for well over a decade.
  11. Nikki added more February and March 1994 episodes at some point yesterday
  12. From Nikki: I added the following Y&R episodes to the vault. Hopefully they aren't duplicates of what's already in there but it's hard to tell because I'm an idiot and didn't label anything. Here is what was added: 1984 episode (in folder labeled "unsure of dates") 1988 episode (in folder labeled "unsure of dates") 4 1994 episodes (in folder labeled "unsure of dates") 2 1992 episodes (in folder labeled "unsure of dates")
  13. From Nikki: I have had some people ask about YR 2004 episodes to see Joan Van Ark so I am adding what I have to the vault and I actually know the dates of a lot of them.
  14. Was Barbados when Lauren was trying to seduce Ridge and Brooke was running around with that doll? Cause that story was atrocious lol. I think it legit was voted worst story of the year in SOD that year lol.
  15. Nikki said she added more episodes to 1994 and asked to remind everyone she doesn't have anything after Hunter left so Taylor's death will be the end of the 94 episodes. Also what is everyone's general opinion of 1995 and 1996 B&B? I am finding those years a chore to watch - all of the focus on Rick and Bridget is nauseating. Why in the world was Brad Bell or whomever so in love with Steve Hartman? That kid ate up so much airtime.
  16. This. I thought they cut Amanda and Billy because the audience wasn't into it at all? Pretty sure it was said fan reaction stopped Billy/Amanda (though I can't imagine anyone is interested in Lily/Billy who are dull as dirt).
  17. Is this really an entire episode about ABBY? Hell nah. They must be joking
  18. Lol, medical advancements are amazing but Michelle has had work done on her face and body. There are videos on You Tube and other sites (promoting Michelle having had work from certain places.)
  19. I am not done watching 1994 and I hope we get as much of the early months of that year as possible but I am really struck by how much better the writing was from 92-94 than it was in any other period of the show. Aside from the triangle and even Belief, I enjoyed the Sally/Jack/Stephanie triangle, the Sheila story, Thorne and Macy's marriage troubles, etc. It is crazy to me that Bill Bell seemed to step away this as this show was starting to reach its potential and not soon after you felt the decline. I have obviously seen episodes from late 1994 after Hunter returned and it almost feels like a TOTALLY different show than it was before she left not just how it was written but it even LOOKED like a completely different show.
  20. This show is terrible BUT holy #%[email protected] Melody Thomas Scott looks AMAZING! She looks better than a lot of folks on the show half her age!
  21. LOL I don't agree with him either (movies like Unfaithful don't work without sex scenes), but specific to soaps how do you feel? Have you missed them now that Covid prevents any show from doing them?
  22. There was huge discussion on social media around the holidays about whether sex scenes in television and film are necessary and I thought it would be interesting to discuss it where soaps are concerned. With Covid, obviously we aren't getting any of the love/sex scenes that we usually get - do you miss them? Do you think soaps need them? Do you think not having them is hurting any particular story/show/arc? Has it effected how much you enjoy certain couples or pairings? Has Covid changed how you view them? What are your thoughts?
  23. I was waiting for someone to mention Tricia Quick. What a dumb disaster that was. GH and its merry go round of tiny brunettes they tried to use as Brenda replacements. Wasn't Genevieve around the time that MTS had actually cleaned out her dressing room? I remember an interview with Logan or Fairman where MTS basically says Genie was brought on as her replacement but it wasn't MAB's fault. The issue was above her. https://ew.com/article/2011/06/10/melody-thomas-scott-young-and-restless/
