  1. 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?
  2. 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/
  3. Nikki said she put some 1993 episodes and 1994 episodes in the vault. "As usual, I don't know the exact dates and I know the Taylor/Brooke confrontation at Big Bear is missing, trying to find that episode"
  4. I have seen many people say this but I can't quite understand why. I mean sure, the Luan story I don't see but I know people think Jack falling in love with Nikki was the start of the character changing and I have seen scenes where Terry's Jack was just as taken with Nikki and I could have easily seen him conning Nikki into marriage only to fall in love with her. This one in particular:
  5. Does anyone have 2000? Especially the early part of 2000 (before May)? It seems like full episodes from the month of January - May are hard to find.
  6. Is the vault down for anyone else?
  7. Nikki posted more 1999 episodes in the vault.
  8. I don't care much about this story (or any of the stories on the show frankly) but she is stunning.
  9. All of the conversations and arguments that Bold and Beautiful had in the 90's about marriage. I find that soaps treat marriage in a very flippant way. People get married and divorced and never really talk about it or their problems and it was so nice that back in the day B&B really took it seriously and had pretty extensive conversations about it - at least where Ridge and Taylor and Stephanie and Eric were concerned. I really thought it was interesting how often they really dissected marriage - what it means to each person, what their expectations are, whether friendships with the opposite sex are appropriate, etc. Some examples: Stephanie tells Taylor and Ridge she thinks Eric marrying Brooke is a midlife crisis Taylor and Ridge arguing about being attracted to other people while married and how to deal with that: Stephanie giving Ridge marriage advice: Stephanie talking to Ridge about how to handle problems in his marriage and dealing with blame:
  10. Hey everyone, Those 1999 episodes are apparently from Nikki N who does the B&B episodes. She emailed asking some of us if we knew the dates and could rename them. I don't know the dates though. Can anyone rename those clips? Can you even do that in the share?
  11. Nikki emailed saying she will be adding more full 1993 and 1994 episodes next week. She has most of the episodes until Hunter's exit.
  12. Nikki N sent an email this morning saying she added 15 more 1993 episodes. I think they're in a folder for December (I haven't looked). She also said she added more stuff to her Tridge channel (not sure what).
  13. Apparently the actor who played Neil got a role on an Apple show. It seemed like he wasn't available much (I believe he was never on contract for this reason)
  14. This is what they think will get people to watch? And what the hell is this? And this B&B promo isn't any better
  15. I don't know if it would have happened the way it happened necessarily but I think Nikki and Jack definitely would have married eventually anyway.
  16. Lets raise the bar a little higher than that. It can't be "well at least Brad is trying" when trying is gimmicky embarrassing nonsense like sex dolls and dolls as characters. Yes Y&R could and should be doing more however if them doing more is stooping to EB doing interviews about dry humping mannequins than they can just cancel soaps. Its not worth it. I am under no illusion that soaps will ever be what they once were but they can and should be better than they are now. I'm never going to be of the opinion that its better to have them on while they're embarrassing and awful than not on at all. I would have much preferred GL get cancelled in 2007 and go out with a shred of dignity over what it became when it moved to Peapeck.
  17. This. And the sad part is Bell thinks it's funny and entertaining. Nevermind the fact that all his goofy interviews about dolls did nothing but make B&B return with 1.2 million less viewers. He loves a goofy gimmick, anything for a laugh or attention no matter how detrimental it is to the genre as a whole. I always feel bad for his actors. Even when the show returned he spent more time talking about dolls and spouse stand-ins than actual storylines or compelling storytelling.
  18. I didn't put this in the spoiler thread because he doesn't give much information but it sounds utterly stupid. BBC: The one question that has come up consistently amongst cast members and their friends is 'What are you guys doing with the dolls?' Bell: Well, the dolls are working! They've been kind of a hit with the press. So we're going to lean into the dolls a little bit. We have a storyline coming up that actually involves a doll as a character and not just a stand-in. So that's a little sneak peek into something we've never done before, but under these circumstances you get new ideas for story and this should be a fun one. BBC: Can you tell us anything more. Bell: Well it's amazing what some of these artists in L.A. can do. They can make dolls the spitting image of someone so the dolls are just getting started on The Bold and the Beautiful.
  19. Yikes. Well B&B definitely benefitted from Y&R's return but both shows are pretty terrible. Y&R came back just as boring as when it left
  20. Well I'm not so much talking about now but the period that Peter is talking about (mainly the 80's and 90's). I think the B&B cast seems fairly close now but I don't believe that was the case in the 90's either tbh. The GH cast now is a mess but the 80's and 90's crew are still SUPER close to this day (Kim Shriner, Lynn Herring, Jane Elliot, Jackie Zeman, Tony Geary, Ian Buchanan, Emma Samms, Tristan Rogers, etc). I didn't actually realize how close they all still are until they did those GH fan events together and told like a million stories (Jane and Tony travel overseas together, Lynn, Jane and Kin talk multiple times a day, etc).
  21. The East Coast soaps had a reputation for being very close. I know the GL cast used to go out drinking together all the time, they all would walk to a local bar. The west coast soaps are different. Everything and everyone is spread out. Several actors have said the Y&R cast was standoffish and didn't socialized much. Its interesting though evem compared to the other west coast soaps Y&R's cast never seemed particularly close. Even in the 80's and 90's the stories you hear about the cast of GH and all of their shenanigans - you rarely hear those kinds of stories about backstage Y&R.
  22. Thank you. What was happening at that time? Jack was really in love with Nikki?
  23. I randomly ran across this clip on Twitter while I was searching for a Nikki clip. Does anyone know if this full episode is in the vault?
