  1. So basically Ron finds Will boring ... Will and his right hand would be a better pairing at this point than Sonny and Will are. BFFs and ex-lovers who still care about each other? Sure. But the spark has been dead for years. Paul and Christopher Sean is desperately needed right now, IMHO. Soaps have been stuck in this "safe" rut for a long time now. Like I said before, Imagine back in 2013/2014 instead of Abby and EJ [!@#$%^&*], we had Will and EJ? THAT would have been juicy. But nope, heaven forbid, not on a US soap. The UK soaps would be all over it ... How do you even know Brandon Barash and Chandler would have chemistry? LOL. Have they even shared any scenes together? (I imagine they would, Barash has pretty nice chemistry with Bjorlin and Banus; I'd love to see Stefan all flirty with Will, lol, Barash would play the hell out of it, lol). Stefan's pretty stuck in the DiMera house at this point, lol. But I'd be all for it (of course I would ... lol). Chandler's Will has always had chemistry with the DiMera men. Casey's Chad. Flynn's Chad seemed more into Sonny. Honestly, I thought Guy Wilson and Freddie seemed very into the pairing together. They had some nice chemistry for a brief minute. Chandler and Freddie just don't seem into this pairing anymore (like the rest of us and I used to stan Wilson, I can't even imagine stanning them now, lawd) lol, Maggie is such a hot mess. I love it. Much better than poo-pooing Victor's misogyny while turning the other head. While it felt a bit sudden, her hitting the bottle again, I mean, losing Daniel (WOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO), Melanie's not around (WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOO), Parker's invisible, Holly's "dead" ... and she's married to a miserable, grumpy SOB misogynist. It makes total sense for her to hit the bottle. I guess finding Mickey dead next to their bed didn't do it ... kudos to Ron for finally being the writer to throw Maggie off the wagon.
  2. And Twitter goes nuts and loves it. At this point, it seems, folks just want entertainment and things happening. At least DAYS has a history with masks so technically, he's honoring history (lol!!) Roman/Andre anyone? I'm just sad Kristen's been reduced to a cartoon villain of the month, wearing masks and desperately clinging to a douchebag. I mean, she just always felt ... smarter than that. She was always nuts but Eileen added layers to her. Stacy plays her different. Not "bad". But different. Stacy is very adequate in the role, and a good recast, but I just prefer Eileen and her nuances. And there's history with Eileen. Stacy feels like a filler for Eileen. I much preferred Stacy as Susan Banks. She nailed it (apart from the on/off accent) Probably not. I imagine we pan to her in a hospital bed at some point. The problem was, Ron never really tried to hide Nicole wasn't herself. She'd never act the way she was, at this point she'd never dump Eric for Brady (that was one of the biggest reasons I knew she was Kristen, that and I knew Stacy would be back in May). It was obvious almost from the start, lol. It's just a lame cop out. He can have Nicole act ridiculous but then Oh! It's Kristen! GOTCHA!!!! But I did like "Nicole" having a bit more fire in her again. I'm so so so so so sick of weepy victim Nicole. She needs to come back roaring for revenge, not crying on Eric's shoulder as he overwhelms her with kisses and hugging (I love Eric but seriously, he was like pawing at her while she was sobbing over "her" daughter at the crash site ... lawd dude, give her a second ...) He's ReRon for a reason, lol. At least certain things fit in better on DAYS, as ridiculous as they are (and masks are beyond ridiculous) Does he think we don't remember 2012/2013 GH?
  3. I like the nuAdam as well. I think the show is watchable. I've tuned in every day so far for the last few weeks. It's not where I want it to be and it's not exactly exciting but I'll take it over damaging writing anyday where everyone hates each other. Griffith just isn't an exciting writer. I think he has some decent grasp and maybe some nice ideas but it doesn't really come together. He still feels like a stopgap, and that's OK, I guess. It feels like the Adam story is at the center and I'm not really here for that again, but I like Mark Grossman so I'm trying. I also do think Sharon seems to have lost a few IQ points back in the Adam story. Sharon Case plays Sharon differently when Adam is involved. IMO. I see we're indeed back to Winters Wednesdays (sort of). It's clear they have no interest in Devon, Ana or Elena. Funny though how Y&R's twitter keeps promoting them but they're all barely on ... Nate and Abby are afterthoughts (literally in Abby's case where the Newmans are concerned, LOL, she's always felt more Abbott to me though and the Abbotts have always been there for her...) I would also LOVE to be here for Beth Maitland and Traci getting a story that involves her writing (and I think this is up Griffith's alley) and falling for a younger man, but why oh why does it have to be Cane? But I don't quite hate it as much as I expected to. I sort of resent they're using Beth/Traci on Cane though. I'm just ... Cane could have filled a role on the show and instead the character is all over the place. It's just time to cut their losses.
  4. Interesting It'd have been a lot more interesting. Brenda's son with Carly and Jax's daughter.
  5. Laaaawd. At least Ron uses masks and Kristen at least isn't crazy enough to get plastic surgery (coughSheilaPhylliscough) LOL!! Kristen was always nuts, used dopplegangers, etc. but at the same time, I'm kind of sad she's been reduced to being this desperate over Brady. It makes my heart hurt a little bit.
  6. THIS! Kim was always useless. I love Tamara Braun but Kim's role (like many other pets) could have been filled with a character folks have a connection to, not something forced. And without Oscar, Kim is even more pointless. I wouldn't have hated Kim and Sonny but they seem determined to keep Sonny and Carly together for whatever reason. I don't think Laura and Maurice have any chemistry at all. (Laura and Ingo did)
  7. It was great so many people came together last night like they used to when these shows were originally on the air to watch and talk about it. We need more of this. And by this I mean television that gets us talking (not talking about more of this Live thing, but I'm not entirely against a second go around ... though I doubt ratings lightning can strike twice, it's just rare ... the first always gets a huge turnout) Those ratings translate to 10ish million and a 1.7 in the demo. Not a huge event (but in this day and age, those are big, but reminds me of Roseanne's revival ratings) but shows that an audience IS there to capture. The networks just ... aren't. They're satisified with 2 million and a 0.5 in the demo nowadays ...
  8. I forgot completely Ferrell was in it until he showed up and I cringed immediately. Helen and Tom were made a parody of. I can kind of get what the actors were going for but it fell flat, IMHO. I know Sykes is getting criticism but I think she was just doing her take on Louise and I didn't necessarily hate it, but Sanford was so full of life (but remember AITF Louise was more understated, but she still had her moments). Louise was very different than what she ultimately became on The Jeffersons so I thought it was a decent take, but was it a good use of her? No. I've rethought it and I appreciate her trying to do her own take. I think she wasn't trying to parody Isabel Sanford and looking back now, I appreciate that. There's a fine line between paying homage and being a total parody SNL skit. Personally, I could have done without the Frank Lorenzo bit ... lol, sorry Sean Hayes but all I saw was Hairspray Live! when he walked in.
  9. Oh, forgot to mention. God Bless Marla Gibbs I was thrilled to see her! Love Jackee's tweet My 227 loving heart enjoyed seeing them together again (and Jackee was great as Diane Stockwell!)
  10. Well. That was ... interesting. Tomei was the best thing about it. She nailed Edith and Stapleton. She's wonderful. Perfect casting. The rest were passable to decent. Foxx did his best Sherman Hemsley. I liked him better than Harrelson as Archie. Sykes didn't have the hautiness or energy of Isabel Sanford's Louise but she was passable if you remember early AITF Louise. I can see why they chose her but yeah she'd have been put to better use as Florence (but I know she wouldn't play that role) It bordered on parody (Frank Lorenzo and Bentley as well as Helen and Tom Willis were like caricatures) I really don't even know how to feel or what to think. They did an excellent job with the sets. It's amazing how well the script holds up (EDIT: there's a reason I still watch reruns and the script never feels tired or even dated - which is weird to say because it is in a way - really) and we're still dealing with all of the same issues (which is disappointing), so I appreciate the messages they were trying to convey. These shows were so progressive for their time and this kind of thing is severely lacking now. It's not done in a mocking tone or treated as a lecture. That's why the reboot of One Day at a Time worked so well. Timely, funny, and not overly preachy (IMO) while still delivering a timely message.
  11. Any chance of an end date I like Rikaart and Kevin probably needed to come back and visit for the Adam stuff, but no thanks ... but I'd take him back at DAYS anyday ... It sounds like he's recurring and won't be a "good guy" (but I'll believe it when I see it ... but it does sound like both Michael and Kevin will be more embracing their darker sides? I still find it hard to believe ...)
  12. Eric Braeden on social media is just ... everything.
  13. Yeah it was before Ron, I think it started in her 2017 return with Austin and Carrie.
  14. Literally the *only* part I liked.
