    Doctor Who

    I heartily agree.

    Doctor Who

    Moffat may have gone off the rails in his last two seasons (and some might say even before that with some justification) but after having seen most of this season, I’m now glad Capaldi didn’t stick around for Chibnall’s boring mess. I think this cast, especially JW, deserved a lot better. Unfortunately, Chibnall’s going to get a bigger curve than he deserves due to the first female Doctor. He’d better hope fans don’t rewatch this season too many times, because I feel his shortcomings, and the shortcomings of this season (almost none of which have to do with the cast) will be exposed pretty quickly on rewatch.

    Unpopular opinion maybe, but I’d rather have Kiki than Ava and I’ll miss her. Ava’s “grief” rings pretty hollow considering how horrible her behavior to Kiki was and her hypocrisy in forgetting that she was the one who showed Kiki nothing was sacred while she was screwing Morgan behind Kiki’s back. Any chance both Ava and Julian can be next on Ryan’s hit list?

    I’ve never felt anything but indifference or antipathy for Ava, but then I’ve never liked MW as an actress. Her character (and the screen time she ate) was the reason I could never fully get into ATWT by the time I was old enough to watch or follow soaps other than the one I was brought up on. And she was just as responsible for AJ’s death as the slime ball who pulled the trigger. No going back from that for me.

    Paul Rauch & others in a #MeToo #TimesUp era...

    The only thing I’ve heard rumored about Paul Rauch is from when Maeve Kincaid committed the unspeakable offense of letting her hair gray naturally. This from an EP who kept an aging (yet fantastic) Douglass Watson front and center on Another World after green lighting breaking up Mac and Rachel only to immediately move him on to someone in Rachel’s age range rather than his own. Rauch was a jerk and an idiot, especially in his refusal to evolve along with the rest of us, but was he guilty of any actual wrongdoing other than a lot of questionable decisions that hurt shows? I’m asking because I honestly don’t know and hope to be informed, because I HATED what this idiot did to GL. But destroying my favorite show does not mean he deserves to be swiped with the me too hashtag.

    Guiding Light discussion thread

    Ouch! My heart breaks with all the Bill hate! No, I’m kidding. There are a lot of great points being brought up regarding Bill Bauer and his many weaknesses. But I think if Bill and Bert would have ever had some kind of real sitdown or even blow-up fight between 1977 and that awful story in 1983, it might turn out that Bill might have some major things to forgive. Even by today’s standards, Bert Bauer was not a good wife to Bill. She constantly spent money they didn’t have, she nagged at him, she belittled him both to his face and behind his back to his own family, and she made his life as much of a living hell as he made hers. That’s what I would have found so fascinating if only Bill would have been written to stay in Springfield after his resurrection, especially after having spent well over a decade with a woman who seemed to be completely unlike Bert. I would have found it very interesting to watch Bill reintegrate and get to know the warmer, more sympathetic, wiser, and more wonderful Bert who was only starting to emerge around the time Bill disappeared. I remember a line Sean Kanan’s AJ practically snarled at Carly a few years back in General Hospital. “Why couldn’t you have built me up instead of constantly pushing me down?” Bert kept Bill on the ground a lot during their early days, and according to what I’ve read, Bill responded almost immediately and very favorably when she finally started showing him some affection. It wasn’t enough to get him off the alcohol right away, but there were other reasons at the time that Bill was hitting the sauce like there was no tomorrow. Guiding Light was so good at exposing uncomfortable truths, especially at the time, and I think it would have been wild for a completely different (and better) Bert and a completely different (and better) Bill confront the fact that, whatever the hardships and however they remain tied together by their family, they became their best selves once they weren’t shackled together anymore. And think of the shockwaves that would have gone through that Springfield if Bert and Bill did file for divorce, but Bill stayed in town and they wound up making peace and becoming good friends as Bill re-entered.

    Neither is the gentleman in that particular picture.

    Comparing an ahole like Roseanne to a monster like Kevin Spacey is apples and oranges, in my opinion. That said, I think it’d be hilarious to get Plummer in a cameo as the doctor breaking the news to Dan and family that Roseanne didn’t make it through her knee surgery due to complications.

    Another World

    I was just watching the episode when John died and I have a question. Were John and Pat becoming close again leading up to his death? It looks as if (from the AWHP, anyway) they both had horrendously bad luck with romantic involvements that weren’t each other. I wish there was more footage of John available. By the time he died, he seemed like a pretty great guy, from what little I’ve seen of him anyway.

    Overrated Vets

    I might get skewered for this, but my vote goes to Elizabeth Webber on General Hospital. Reva Shayne hadn’t been all that and a bag of chips since 1989. I agree with the choice of Buzz Cooper. I wanted more Bauers.

    Another World

    I don’t think Spencer and Justine ever lived in Bay City. The Harrison men, all three of them, came to Bay City from Boston. I think it was first Ryan, then Grant, then Spencer. But you’re right in that it makes no sense Spencer never had a reaction to Rachel’s resemblance to Justine, except that history didn’t exist until the Justine travesty actually started. I think Carl had some comment around the time he found out Ryan was his son about how “like” Rachel was to Justine, but my mind might be making even that up.
