  1. Marriage Story is an overrated ham-fest and ScarJo being a double nominee is absurd. Awkwafina was sublime and robbed. I'm rooting for Renee in Judy this year, because I like her comeback arc and can see the parallels with her and Judy Garland.
  2. That was some good acting by Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks on Y&R in quite some time (to my surprise and delight). I've never liked Tessa, but the goodbye scenes well done. I'm not going to miss Tessa though if she is indeed gone.
  3. Although I can’t stand Tessa, it’s nice to see a lesbian relationship onscreen in daytime. LGBTQ is normally always focused on the “G,” so this is a nice change. I just wish Tessa the actress was better
  4. Nice to see Sharon Case get a story. I find Tessa somewhat more tolerable these days (small doses) but she still needs to go. A better actress would've been able to make me care, ditto Lola and her creepy smiling. Watching Y&R today, I wish they never decided to go contemporary. I miss the slow burn and classical cues, and of course the towering performances. Yesterday's Y&R was timeless, today's Y&R is forgettable unfortunately.
  5. Chelsea sucks. The fact that she jumped between Nick and Adam so quickly is tacky as hell. Also, Connor is an annoying brat. The Paul/Christine/Lauren/Michael scenes at Society were bad because these four characters should not be this chummy whatsoever. Tessa continues to be deceitful Lovely seeing Fen! Wasn't a fan of the Abbott Christmas, but loved seeing Dinah again NuChance needs to be recast pronto. Actor is smug and unlikable
  6. Yes, that Phyllis scene was horrible with the waitress. I miss Gina Tognoni, and will admit the writing is doing MS no favours either. On a superficial note, Kyle looked REALLY good in that brown cardigan. They really don't know what to do with Nick. Have no idea what's going on with Billy, but it sucks. Nate is acting like a whole bitch to Devon
  7. Not a fan of the actress, but did enjoy the first film.
  8. With the recent Golden Globes noms and Ana de Armas nomination, I am reminded of how insufferable Lola is on Y&R (not as much recently). After recently watching Knives Out, it was overhyped and under-delivered. The constant love and sainthood for Marta just reminded me of Y&R's Lola, and the actress was less than inspiring.
  9. The Colin debacle is awful. Chelsea is not working at all.
  10. Good points. This show just made me miss Y&R so much. Even the classic scenes shown can still do well today IMO.
  11. That Jack episode was absolutely beautiful (the scene with John & Dina were heart wrenching). Also, the lighting, I miss it, and also the seriousness of the show (business, family, death) How can Griffith put this together and not understand what made the show so wonderful? I've always enjoyed Peter Bergman as Jack, and this was a lovely episode. As much as I enjoy Dina and Marla, I don't mind that they gave her Alzhemiers because Marla did fascinating work and I do think it is a tragic swan song for such a large character. Edit: Early Phyllis/Jack is actually really good. Man, all of those flashback scenes were grounded in mostly reality. No doppelgängers, no silly plots, just character driven drama. Come back Y&R.....
  12. I feel sorry for Mishael Morgan. Yes she has nice chemistry with Nate, but the character just isn't working for me. Speaking of Nate, I wish they'd bring back Olivia. Although, it appears TLW does not want to return the show (this is my own speculation).
  13. I have to say, ever since that CBS exec left, Lola has become a bit more tolerable. I don't mind her scenes with Theo. New Chance is a BUST.
  14. So I kinda enjoyed the hostage stuff. I thought the actor did a really good job.
  15. I agree, but I also find there is a ton of talent out there, you just need to actually give a damn.
  16. Wow, that's brutal. I hope they can work something up. As much as these shows annoy me at times, they still provide a sort of comfort and steadiness in my life just knowing that they exist.
  17. Agreed. Mitchell, Miguel, Mamie, Mary.... I sure do miss them all 😞
  18. I actually liked the Halloween parody, especially the Abby one. As much as I dislike Tessa, I do appreciate the anniversary scenes dedicated to the couple. I think they are better in small doses when they are not being judgmental.
  19. Can't say I agree with this, sounds slightly sexist.
  20. This Theo stuff is AWFUL and UNNECESSARY. And OMG what the hell are they writing for Phyllis? Phyllis on Adam couch begging to be accepted, and then ripping up the cheque? So much awfulness and Stafford once again did not deliver. I wonder if she regrets coming back, because it looks like the cast has moved on from MS Phyllis, even from the scene interactions.
  21. Dear God in heaven I hope you're right!
  22. You know, I really hate this Devon story. It could've been done so much better if they were going to contest the will. But to give it to EFFIN Cane is so damn dumb. I also don't think I've disliked Jill more than now. If this is why they brought Jill back, they might as well ship her off. This whole thins is just completely insulting and dumb as hell. Why are they believing Cane who is a REPEATED LIAR? No way in hell Katherine would leave her inheritance to Cane. Just so damn dumb
  23. Kyle and Theo seriously need to hook up. The ratings would skyrocket if done right
