  1. I think you're absolutely right: he probably would have made a great Lucky recast. GH has a lot of these casting disasters (Roger Howarth as Franco, Jeff Kober as Cyrus, etc.), and I guess the blame should be laid at Frank's feet. He keeps hiring these actors he likes, without having a clear understanding of what their actual strengths are or what kinds of roles they'd be best at.
  2. Yeah, I was also struck by how well-written those texting scenes were. As you said, they were the highlight of the episode and were genuinely hot. I wonder who wrote them!
  3. Oh, I thought he seemed a lot like EJ, just without the interest in the family business. Which probably means he'll be the new CEO of Dimera by February sweeps.
  4. SORASed Johnny really hit the ground running today. I'm all for a love quadrangle where Chanel is torn between Allie and her twin brother. And Dan Feuerriegel is really growing on me as EJ; I liked his scenes both with Johnny and with John (whose wordless reaction to EJ's protests was fantastic). The only thing I didn't like about the episode is how stupid are Marlena, John, and Allie to believe that those "leave me alone" text messages actually came from Sami.
  5. Josh Morrow's bad hair is the most interesting thing I've seen on this show in months.
  6. Why does EJ know or care about Ben and Ciara getting their "happily ever after"? Does he even know Ben and Ciara? I did enjoy watching Gabi and Ava trade bitchy barbs at each other, however. TB is so much better when she gets to show that hard edge.
  7. Me [yelling at my computer screen]: No s***, bitch!
  8. Wow, I didn't think we were going to get the reveal about Lani's parentage so quickly! I guess it spares us weeks of Jackee and Marla Gibbs talking in vague terms about their family secret.
  9. Ben and Ciara's schmoopfest aside, I really liked most of the scenes in today's episode. Xander and Gwen were the highlight for me, but I also thought Sal Stowers did a terrific job with her monologues about why she doesn't trust her Aunt Paulina. We were complaining just the other day that it seemed out-of-character for Lani to hold this grudge against her aunt, so I have to give them credit for slowing down and giving the backstory (which Lani desperately needs, since she tends to be an underdeveloped character, as a lot of black characters on predominantly white-written soaps often are).
  10. Amen to that! Although I actually did like all those scenes of Ciara snarking at Ben for being a serial killer who disgusts her.
  11. Well, they annoyed the hell out of me. That fortune cookie stuff was unbearable.
  12. Probably. She did a technically good American accent, but didn't have a ton of natural inflection in her voice. She also suffered from some poor writing; it's as if the writers decided that, with the recast, Claire would no longer be crazily obsessive and jealous... but they didn't bother coming up with any new personality traits for her.
  13. Okay, so who do we think , and how many months do you think we'll have to wait before that information is revealed? My money is on
  14. That comment could apply to a lot of the stories and scenes on the show right now. In the recent episode I watched, everyone seemed bizarrely unmoved and even bored by the news that Ashland has decided to get treatment for his terminal cancer. I know some of the characters on Y&R are marked by their WASPy reserve, but come on!
  15. Having just checked out the 8/10 episode, I have to disagree with that. I felt like the episode only came alive once Chloe and Kevin showed up. Maybe they were just glad to be working again, but EH and KR played their scenes with a lot more energy than the rest of the cast, most of whom just seemed bored. But once I got past all the interminable conversations about Phyllis being upset Summer was staying in Italy, it wasn't such a bad episode.
