    He's pretty good on The Rookie and looks good, too.

    Yes, Leo and Xander are fun. But loving it that Xander seems repulsed by Leo? Don't know why that's funny.

    BOOM! Fevuh, you nailed it completely. I agree with everything you said x 100. I'm hate watching this show like never before. The Emmy reel for Hope....does it have to run for dozen shows? I'm sick of her wailing and sniffling. Tomorrow Brooke will be back to agree with Hope that Sally was out of line. UGH. Also UGH to the apparent exit story for Thorne. The writing is awful and so is Ingo. I get it. The kid has rebonded with Dollar Bill. So when did he completely UNbond with Thorne??? Lousy stuff.

    Sheila and Xander made the show today. The other stuff was FF material, including Sarah ping ponging between the brothers, which has been done a zillion times.

    Zach Tinker is doing a great job as Fen, making scenes work that really shouldn't. He's believable in every scene and works hard. The story about Ana hiding her songwriting is stupid. Even if she owes someone money, why would she have to hide writing a hit song? This is typical Mal Young crap, and a reason he was fired. Just another story we have to pretend makes sense. Mal sure did dump all over Gina Tognoni before he left. Could be make her more unlikable in every scene and situation? Then there's Nikki with the gun in the final scene. These rich people under attack don't have armed security guards at the front door? That is pitiful writing, and I hate unbelievable stuff.

    The teens weren't great. They weren't bad, but there was nothing great about their acting or the story. The catacombs are in Oscar's bucket list? LOL

    Was anyone with Phyllis when she supposedly threw away the fireplace poker? If not,...well, then you know what I’m thinking

    Another big fat NO to the return of Michelle Stafford. Her acting tics are annoying and she wouldn't raise the ratings a bit.

    All the dead baby stuff is boring and dreadful. I hate it.

    Nick's reaction was just fine. Did you want him to scream like Nikki? Or outscream her? I know you hate Josh Morrow, but I don't understand commenting on him in that scene at all. To me, the smh part of the episode was watching everyone sit there paralyzed while Phyllis took over and ripped JT to shreds. That just wasn't believable.

    Don't have any fear. When did TPTB ever listen to the audience? You think Frank cares that we're bored?

    GH has managed to make a serial killer boring.

    I was glad to see Victoria’s entranceway and foyer make a return, and I have noticed the ceilings, which I think create atmosphere. Still, sets that were diminished, such as the GCAC, need to come back full size. Too many sets were shrunk or eliminated or changed entirely. The new police station is no improvement, and the Ashby house has been reduced to a kitchen. At some point, Victor and Nikki deserve their own house/ranch, and I miss Victor’s office, too. The wow factor is already gone from the Dark Horse sets, and that meeting room with the ugly orange chairs is awful and cheap. Rey and Mia’s place is crummy, and Mariah and Tessa’s apt. should be set on fire.

    Chandler and Freddie either look bored or they grin at each other as if to say “I can’t believe we’re playing this gay sh_it.” Both of those are insulting.

    Yeah, a really bad Hallmark movie. They’re all bad, but some are at least watchable. This menu stuff isn’t watchable. I would rather see Lola take over the GCAC restaurant than to see her in some tacky techy / new wave place Devon opens while the Athletic Club gets chopped to nothing. Also, what the hell good was that Jack visit to Victoria prison? Why would Victor even meet with him, let alone listen to Jack bash him? The whole thing was effing stupid. Also stupid? Abby’s rant to Jack about Victor. Just why??? Why would she think Jack cared? Why complain to him?

    Lola’s bratty teenager Act is on my last nerve. I’m already tired of her hyper drama at every turn, and multiple scenes about a restaurant menu aren’t exciting soap material. Those scenes with Abby, Ana, and Devon were embarrassing, also because the menu and pricing discussion was eye-rolling. The whole thing reeked of “this is all fake.”

    Have to agree. The only enjoyable scenes were with Xander and Leo — funny, sexy, campy. Xander hotness is off the hook. The Sonny and Will scenes? Awful. No energy, no romance, no heat, no feeling. The Chad scenes just seem like same old same old every day. RSW is strikingly fine, but characters need to stop rehashing his crimes and sins every day. It’s boring and it’s wrecking the character.

    The election stuff was tragic. Just call all an election for any random day. No campaign workers needed...a few supporters for Laura in a bar...Mayor Ned (who saved Port Charles after the EARTHQUAKE!!!) alone with Olivia. All so believable. If they can’t make filler look real, I don’t want to see it.

    The Lola cooking stuff doesn’t work for me. If you can’t make it look real, don’t do it. Chopping celery stalks isn’t cooking. Where were these delicious dishes? Oh, right, they ate them. Nothing to see here. of course, after her disastrous first course, Lola was able to come up with something SPECTACULAR in a flash. Right. Also so love it that Devon didn’t care what kind of restaurant food Lola had, leaving it up to her. Right. Also not working: the manufactured problems between Ana and Devon. ANY NORMAL DISCUSSION would have Devon asking what Ana would add to that demo track or change. Or Ana would ask him to let her come up with a version for him to listen to. But no, we had to create lies and deceit and a Fen who always plays all sides. And where was the decision made? In the recording studio? Of course not — it was in the damn living room. UGH.

    Agreed. At first I decided to give it a chance, but it’s a fail. It would’ve worked much better — even if it was still lame — with an unknown actor. Brady’s game show persona is too ever-present, and his acting can’t overcome it.

    YAWN from me, too. I hated Liam’s soapy “Why did this happen to a person such as Hope who’s so wonderful in every way?” Haven’t we seen that cliche scene a million times? Why not give us an angry Liam rant about how random life is? Or even that it’s a damn shame that good people have to supper, but that’s what you get with life?

    Xander still looks great, especially without a shirt, but does anyone else think he lost a few lbs. that he shouldn’t have lost? He he was a little bigger and fuller in his last run, I think.

    That open is THE worst daytime soap opening I have EVER seen. It’s just awful. I slowed it down and tried to pause it and STILL couldn’t deal with it. And no, it’s not the FCC’s fault because there’s more advertising. If less story time is available, then speed up the scenes enough to get 15 or 20 more seconds for an open. Cut a character’s walk into a room. Cut a long pause. Cut a closeup. We’re talking about cutting 15 seconds, not 5 minutes. Opens make a statement about a show. I know that prestige openings can be found only on no ad networks like Netflix and HBO, but it’s sad to lose them and end up with just the show’s name on the screen — or this.
