    You're likely correct. Calling Deacon for his two-day scapegoat cameo....
  2. B&B March 2018 Discussion

    Betting our culprit has been revealed with the cast announcement today.
  3. B&B Actress Out

    No shock there. We knew the Spectras weren't going to last. They burned through everything in first four months - arrival to being in front of judge and the whole DumbAs relationship. That was at least a year of material.
  4. It's too bad we don't have easy access to Live+3, Live+7 or streaming/on demand data for soaps. Considering the huge plunge in prime time ratings (and the big boosts they get from delayed viewing/streaming), I'm sure soaps are getting some of that. Soaps are the ultimate binge viewing!

    Gosh, I hope that MM & Bryton don't get the 'happy couple' treatment- that's soap equivalent of purgatory! If MY can figure out pacing, the push-pull between Hilary/Devon could be a great long-running storyline. Hilary's desire for career advancement, a family etc. with Devon's undeniable attraction to Hilary but having a real apprehension based on the past, etc. Victor/Nikki have perfected this type of storyline.

    Yep. I've been rooting for an 'Empire' type of switch with the fake ALS. MY is way off here because Dina/MA can be the appropriate successor to Kay/JC. Dina has so many ties to the current canvas, it's a waste. And since John isn't around to center the Abbotts, Dina does that.

    The character had potential, but the writing for him was terrible - especially the Max storyline. He did have chemistry with both AH/ED. I was just thinking the other day that bringing him back for Ashley or Victoria wouldn't be a bad thing, but that ship has sailed.

    @Faulkner The Newmans also survived in tact because of MTS. The Abbotts would've been fine if they hadn't killed John and Colleen - possibly Diane. The Chancellor family could've survived if not for the PIII nonsense. As much as I loathe Cane, he could've anchored the family with Devon (kind of a Chancellor/Winters merger).

    @GMac And don't forget scrapping Lily's national ad campaign and derailing her other opportunities - wasn't the agent all stoked about her and then it crashed. Funny how Cane (a man) does all these horrible things and bounces back to lead CI, but Lily (a woman) now ends up with nothing. What are these writers thinking? Even a 'weak' show like the 'new' Dynasty knows how to write smart, career-oriented women. I don't get why daytime can't do the same.

    With all this Mac talk and the 'importance' of preserving Lame, will they bring up that she gave birth to the twins again? At least KK is 35 v CK finally at 30.

    Any bets on the scapegoat for $B's shooting? I figure they'll go with Emmy or Justin. I'd love to get rid of Spam or Gomer Pyle, but Spam is safe - no way Brad's going to have a mentally ill person do this - Gomer Pyle can't even load a gun. If they were really 'bold,' it would be Lame who witnessed the proposal. He's the only one who truly has motive. Everyone else, it's like "NOW you're mad at $B?" But my real pick: DumbAs. He finds out C2 lied and he witnessed the proposal....

    I'm trying to understand the whole Victoria/Lily drama just because B&S is at Newman. What really changed except writing Victoria as a 'horrible' boss? If anything, the security of NE v. a stand-alone restart (with Billy/Cane/Victoria constantly fighting for power) should have had the opposite effect. I'd rather have JT/Lily get it on behind Victoria/Cane's back instead of Lily quitting a job she loves - that's just poor writing. I'm sure it's to cause 'stress' to Lane with Lily being at home, having to care for Sam, etc.

    Had rare chance to watch - it's too bad TL can't join full-time - he has more presence than the other male actors. At least, AH/TL have an incredibly great working relationship. As far as the setting-up Ashley s/l, it just holds no water: 1) Ashley is not duplicitous in business; 2) she would never hurt Newman/Abby; and 3) Victoria/Jack are far too smart to come up with this JV plan. Victoria becoming 'self-aware' after reading those comments ... her reaction is an insult to all businesswomen. The writers are really out-of-touch here. Hilary begging for Devon's seed. Pass. That's so beneath her. SC/MTS - they will always be iconic soap gold. Billy/Nick was unexpectedly interesting.
  14. Front burner to forgotten

    TEON did this a lot. Some of it was the nature of the stories. I started watching when it was on late-night in 1981, if not for YouTube/DVDs, etc. I would've never known Elliot, Draper, April, anyone from Mansion of the Damned, even Logan, etc. and they were all over that show from 1979-80. I didn't even know who Logan really was until he came back near the end.
  15. Characters that didn't survive a recast...

    @Chris B Anyone else find it ironic that the actor playing Traci's daughter was allegedly fired over weight! ATWT - Connor and Molly was two mammoth recasting failures - and ATWT was pretty solid in casting. But I have to add Jon Lindstrom as Craig - the character was dead to me. While HB was an eccentric Craig - his range and charisma made him watchable, but JL was so miscast that I FF through pretty much every Craig scene.
