  1. And I would hope that more generally we would have learned not to root for the end of ANY soap. All soaps we have lost have been a tragedy, even when they were not in a good place creatively. We have four left; when things are going array, we should be rooting for them to get better and use their potential to the full, not cheer on the potential death of a genre that, I would assume since we are on this forum, we care about and love.
  2. Bill Bell managing to stretch by I think what supposed to be something like a mere hour on-screen (before a press conference where Jill might reveal her affair with Jack unless John gives her a slice of Jabot) into an entire week of actually tense and suspenseful episodes will stay with me as a masterpiece of the genre.
  3. If you mean her, it is "Laurie" (actress: Dawn Cody), Michael's pregnant wife
  4. I know. I am just being cheeky at B&B's expense I didn't mind the slow pace of this particular story until now because I like a slow burn when the payoff ought to be there at the end which seemed like it... but the last few weeks have been unsatisfying and I am now pessimistic it is going to be as worth it as I had assumed, sadly.
  5. Not really the best comparison. I mean the B&B would have wrapped this up in a week and if this was B&B Jason would have have time to marry Carly, Britt and Sam again in those nine months
  6. That's why I brought it up. We had speculated about pregnancy but now it feels too late so ... what was the point? Notice too this is the SECOND time they write a one-night stand for Britt (Julian previously) that leads to exactly zero story consequence.
  7. One of the many things that have gone haywire is exactly this. It is hard to know what the writers are trying to tell us. They had a great thing going with Jason/Britt and now it feels they are almost trying to sell us Jarly as viable on its own right. I suppose, if I am being generous, it is supposed to make in turn Sonny/Nina slightly more plausible if CarSon are not as much the obvious endgame (I mean, they are but in terms of how things are presented) but the loss of momentum from Britt/Jason is puzzling. In any case, I agree with you that it is very ambiguous and weird. Also as a side note, I have yet to understand what the point of that Britt/Jax interlude story-wise was.
  8. My apologies. It was Taoboi who brought it up recently in the GH Spoilers thread, not you, as seen below. Anyhow, I agree with him that regardless of the sense of how the show is going overall, this late summer has felt like a bad inflection point. I hope it picks right back up again.
  9. Well, obviously higher-ups meddle all the time. But there was speculation that between Peter/Cyrus return and a couple of weirdly abrupt story changes, we are currently (since August-ish) seeing a specific point at which orders came from above that changed the planned course the writers had been on. And I think it rings true because the dropoff in quality and coherence is noticeable.
  10. As a completely unimportant side note, how many facelifts did Linda Dano get? Someone mentioned earlier that the skylight-fall was intended to "excuse" her being in bandages in 1997 but watching the late 1995 episodes that are being posted on YouTube and those massive unflattering bangs she was wearing then look like they are intended to cover something.
  11. The dropoff in quality from three months ago is pretty striking. I really think Vee is onto something with his higher-up interference theory.
  12. Agree. Very unimpressed with how they are handling this Jax-finds-out.
  13. Well as I said I am wary of misremembering the gossip but basically it was pretty abrupt and arbitrary in the sense of her working for several months before someone upstairs telling her it is not working and firing her despite the fact, as Vee said, she was doing a fine job in the role Show-business is tough obviously but a lesser person might have been a little resentful and not wanting to revisit a bad memory. https://www.nytimes.com/1989/06/11/nyregion/an-actress-learns-from-a-setback.html
  14. Unless I am misremembering, I thought it was even more gracious of Elizabeth Dennehy to do it considering how things went down.
  15. Setting aside how offensive the comparison is, I am actually shocked at how poor VK's attempt at recreating the emotion in Julie's face is. Hard to tell if she is just modeling or almost mocking her but either way It is doubly offensive.
