  1. I couldn’t stand Jonathan and he was yet another way I saw Reva continuing to take airtime from other characters. He never should have been brought back after we finally got rid of him and I still hate to this day he never paid for stealing Lizzie’s daughter from her. Why was Phillip wasting his time in ‘09 throwing Grady over a cliff when he should have thrown Jonathan over a cliff? While I never had strong feelings over the Otalia story one way or the other, I still think Olivia was a pretty ridiculous choice to all of a sudden go that way with her previous romantic history and I did think they were overrated to the extreme. I still wish Marcy Walker hadn’t been so misused as Tangier’s Hill. Under better circumstances I think she could have done well. She had a good vibe with the rest of the cast.
  2. The only time I really care about from what I’ve seen so far is when he was with Paulina. Jensen Buchanan’s Vicky, to me, was a complete villain protagonist and I just can’t get behind Jake and Ellen Wheeler’s Marley in 1999 because of the history there. And unfortunately the writers post-Jensen thought Jake was useless without Vicky. I liked Jake with Molly on ATWT, part of the good things Hogan Sheffer did with that show (along with what should have been a crack pairing but wound up pretty good as long as it lasted Hal and Emily). But I’m really sorry I can’t find that 1984 episode. It really was cute. Of course, I’m also sorry there’s so little of Paul Stevens’ work as Brian Bancroft before 1981.
  3. There’s an episode from, I want to say 1984, because Carl was involved before he went completely nuts, that had a surprise party for Larry and included a dinner party involving Cecile, Peter, Mac, Rachel, Carl, and I think Felicia, that got booted off YT. Larry was cute, busting on himself describing how he was practicing his big surprised face, only for Clarice to troll him for a scene and then Mayor Brian called up to troll him over the phone to get him to his real surprise party. There was possibly also stuff going with Quinn and a blow-up clown in her car that was surprisingly terrifying and effective, if I’m not mixing up episodes. I do hope that episode makes it back to YT, because it was delightful.
  4. And how were the last episode or two? I haven’t gotten around to them on my DVR (currently doing the MCU on TV).
  5. Not interested in seasons 1 and 2 of Discovery, but I’ll be checking reviews of Picard and season 3 of Discovery carefully to find out if the Blu Rays would be worth the price.
  6. Oh, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a (delusional) market for it.

    Doctor Who

    Eccleston always deserved a lot more credit than he’s gotten. I liked Tennant, but preferred the overall direction the show seemed to heading with Eccleston. By the time Smith took over, it was too late to course correct the overwhelming focus on the Doctor as an object of romantic affection. I find less and less to like about RTD with each rewatch. He was incredibly self-indulgent. Moffat was as well, but I thought he hid it a lot better until he lost Amy and Rory, his first Companions.
  8. Please just stop posting entire threads. It’s cumbersome and difficult to get through. I’m also reasonably certain you also copy and paste extremely long lists and blog posts word for word on Facebook in one of the GL groups I’m subscribed to.
  9. I don’t know why some are so surprised that Chandler Massey ain’t taking any of this seriously. He did the same thing for at least a year before he was cut loose the first time and he’s even more insufferably smug and just plain bad now that he was actually asked back. Christopher Sean was able to throw some illusion over CM’s complete lack of effort, but he’s not around anymore. As lackluster as the writing for the gay couple is, the only actor involved willing to go for broke is the “villain” of the piece. The writing, as bad as it is, is NOT the biggest problem here.
  10. Ugh at the idea that GH, which has been a hollowed-out shell of its former glory for at least ten years, will surpass Guiding Light (which in my opinion never sunk as low as GH has sunk for the last decade at least) as longest running on television. Makes me queasy to even think about it for too long.
  11. This hurts. That’s all I can say.
  12. *SQUEE!!!* I'm not on that cesspit Twitter anymore, can someone do me a favor and send some love this post's way for me?
  13. I "knew" about Bernau and Crothers, but Gentry too? Damn, I never would have guessed that one. And I'm guessing Datalounge was right about Paul Stevens? I've found that I can't help thinking his performance as Brian Bancroft has a kindness to it that had to have come from the actor himself. I hope they all found fulfillment and happiness during the time they lived. I know this is a very naive statement, but it just seems such a waste of who they were that they felt they couldn't be who they were (and not without reason at the time). I stand corrected there. Like I said, I have no idea why I even started wondering about him. Maybe it was Michael Hudson I was getting vibes from? If so, I'll be the first one to stand up and point and laugh at myself.
  14. And now I'm reminded why I relied on clips and summaries after Eric got screwed by being responsible for Egg Baby's death and before Jack's return. 😟😒😠👎
  15. I have no problem admitting that Jack's return is the reason I'm watching full episodes again, rather than just trying to catch either clips of the characters I care about or being satisfied with summaries or comments on here. Quite frankly, given the way the scene was going, I really was expecting Jack to admit that he'd turned Chad's money down and then showed up for dinner anyway, but I don't mind that my expectation wasn't the case. Given that Eve's been whispering in his ear for weeks (at least), why would someone who had no first-hand memories of these people want to spend time with them? Not even taking into account how Abby and (eventually) JJ championed Dr. Tan-Man-Retconned-Egg-Baby-Could-Do-No-Wrong-Served_As-A-Reason-To_EscortHot-AssGregVaughan-Off-This-Show-RAGEBLACKOUT-Nicole and Eric-BLACKOUT- I'm just happy that Jack isn't actively fighting against or hostile to these strangers who are claiming to be his family. He's not giving them any false hope, but he accepts certain things and he wants to know what he's missing and what he's missed since he's been gone. I hesitate to give Ron credit this early (I'm still burned from what he ultimately did to AJ), but so far he is nailing Jack's return from the dead with amnesia without making anyone look like a complete asshat in the process. I was pleasantly surprised to see that maybe they're not making this custody battle over Nicole's daughter into one of these year-long stories. Move everyone along, no one's interested in a custody battle at this point anyway. I'm not at all interested in Eve and her agenda, but I have to give Kassie DePaiva credit here. The scene with her alone looking at the contract made me wonder just for a split second if she might just decide to give up her vendetta against Jennifer and opt for a fabulous life in Paris, and on the disgusting Dimeras' dime at that. I really haven't been impacted, at all, by this incarnation of Eve until now, but those few seconds made me root for her to just let it go and go live a great life. I'm wondering what the writers are going for with Haley. It's not IMPOSSIBLE for an undocumented immigrant with a clean record while here to apply for a good number of things to keep her here if she continues to keep her nose clean while she's here. Get politics the fudge out of here, it's not a good look for you, Days. And if Trask is a DA while being undocumented, well... Even the US government and its endless employees isn't that incompetent... OR ARE THEY?? Is that the question? I'm glad Jack brought me back. This show is fun, while the rest seem to be just desperate at this point. I was going to say the same thing about Missy Reeves, but I decided it seemed like I wasn't happy with her beforehand (which is not true). Thanks for saying it for me! Matt Ashford is a treasure. Maybe this is the stint Ken Corday realizes it?
