  1. I don't really like commenting on this because it feels very gross to me but I think a lot of the decisions she made regarding plastic surgery were a direct result of some things that happened in her personal life including some mental breaks. She clearly developed some type of body dysmorphic disorder. Anyway, I have to say, I quit being a regular viewer of B&B an eternity ago but I was suprised at how great she looked here in 2008:
  2. Hunter was the reason I started watching too but also loved the Spectras and Flannery. Actually, I realized the other day that I really had no use for the men on the show. I only really tolerated Ridge because of Taylor. But I loved Taylor, Stephanie, Sally, Macy, Sheila, and later Amber - the male characters I could pretty much take or leave.
  3. Has this interview ever been posted? Bill Bell and Claire Labine Interview from 1997 https://www.serialscoop.com/2014/07/bill-bell-claire-labine-on-writing.html?m=1
  4. This episode is positively dreadful.
  5. I feel like the Annie Dutton story definitely helped GL in the ratings. I don't remember what they were but I remember it being pretty big.
  6. Interesting choices. I'm most excited about that Stephanie vs. Sally episode. That 1995 episode - is that when Hunter was wearing that wig and using that terrible accent because nobody knew Taylor was alive yet?
  7. It wasn't just Sheila, it had a fantastic timeslot in most markets but Sheila crossing over was a big part of the show getting Y&R's audience and keeping them engaged. And considering the quality of content the show put out as the years progressed I have my doubts it would be where it is for as long as it has been without those two factors Honestly, I miss GL a bunch, particularly the quality of the performances on that show. It was always a notch above the rest from an acting standpoint and IMO this was even true as late as 2005.
  8. B&B likely wouldn't be where it is (or even on the air) without the timeslot and the Sheila crossover, lets be honest. I loved the idea of Generations but I agree that Sussman ain't it. One of the genre's most boring writers
  9. Has anyone put the last two episodes on the OneDrive?
  10. LOL this appears to be a clear case of Bill Bell's vision still somewhat being THE vision for the show. Because what is quoted above is NOT Bradley at all. He LOVES and LIVES FOR the trash and sleaze. He clearly says he still gets story direction from his father, it seems as though this interview is more about his father's vision than his IMO. The man who wrote Deacon/Brooke and Ridge/Bridget saying going too far in terms of bad taste and sexually explicit content is not B&B? Didn't the Forrester family listen to Deacon having sex with Bridget and her losing her virginity over the phone?
  11. I thought he was? Aren't both him and Tracey recurring?
  12. Why has Cricket been in every classic episode? And they could have skipped this Isabella episode it mainly focused on characters no longer on the show (Raul, Brittany, Bobby) or ones no longer on contract (Christine, Paul, Michael)
  13. It was completely stupid and out of the blue. There was no actual reason to break up Thorne and Brooke except that Brad Bell is forever creatively bankrupt. Question, I just read on social that Flannery protested the Andy story, in fact she was so pissed about it she took a leave from the show (which they claimed was medical) - does anyone know if that is true? If so, I don't blame her at all. I had long quit the show by then but I knew the general story points. I forgot RJ existed tbh. Brad is so awful. He seems to think Brooke's only relevant child is Hope. He never had any interest in RJ and hasn't cared about Bridget in years and Jacob Young is off contract isn't he?
  14. Do they EVER mention Massimo? Or the fact that Ridge is not Eric's son? It seemed like once all of the Marone's left that was all forgotten and never mentioned I quit watching the show regularly like 20 years ago tbh
  15. Massimo and Stephanie put the plan in motion and then told Taylor after they did it but she kept the secret because before that Brooke had told Taylor she was going to take her family and her kids (basically). Brooke was even planning creepy play dates with Thomas so I couldn't blame Taylor for wanting her gone even though the plan went too far. Ridge went off on Taylor when he found out the truth, Brooke thought he would leave Taylor over it but he told her it wasn't happening and Ridge and Taylor got back together. It seemed mainly to be a setup for Ridge/Massimo conflict for the big dumb reveal that Massimo was Ridge's father (what was ever the point in that).
  16. Yeah he had issues with Brooke from the second he came on the show. His first story was teaming up with Stephanie to make Brooke think her father was dying so Brooke would leave town permanently. They paid off Stephen to pretend he was dying.
  17. Gotta say, I don't think there is an actress in daytime who sold sex and seduction better than Lynn Herring. It was just effortless. I keep thinking of other actresses that could do this scene justice and deliver it without it coming off as forced or cheesy or cringe and I'm coming up blank. I know one of her Emmy nominations came from a seduction scene - it was deserved.
  18. I agree. Flannery was always a pro but I vehemently hated the direction they took Stephanie - an unnecessarily violent villain and eventual rape facilitator. It absolutely ruined the character.
  19. They basically turned Stephanie into a rape facilitator to prop Brooke and Ridge. Having Stephanie tell him "don't take no for an answer" was so over the top and disgusting. I have no idea how Flannery stayed on that show as long as she did.
  20. I don't think she would have submitted. I agree she would have been deserving but I highly doubt she submitted.
  21. Katherine and Nikki drove me nuts. Maybe if Katherine wasn't always so pro-Victor I would have found them easier to tolerate but the way she shoved Nikki towards Victor and encouraged her to forgive him of any and everything was exhausting.
  22. I just find these embarrassing now. It feels a little "please put these out of their misery." I can't even be happy when deserving actors get nominated because the competition is so scarce and limited.
