  1. Honey, you don’t get to trash Chandler if you think Freddie is any better than horrendous. He should never act again. His scenes as a strong businessman were hilarious. He can’t sell that. His scenes as a romantic gay guy are pathetic. His pursed lips are out of The Rocky Horror Show. He can’t sell that. His crying and sobbing scenes when Adrienne died were a trainwreck. He can’t sell that. Face it, both Freddie and Chandler have worn out their welcome. They both suck. And those clicks Freddie gets? LOL I’d hardly call him an influencer. Maybe he can wait tables in the same restaurant as Chandler.
  2. It happened occasionally years ago, but nothing like now, when that smirk or downright grin shows up in almost every scene. I don’t buy it that he knew he couldn’t get away with it in scenes with the vets— I’ve seen it there, too, although not as much as with Freddie. it feels like they’d both love to act like Beavis and Butthead in those scenes where they’re gay guys in a relationship. They come across like middle school jerks who think it’s weird to be gay. Freddie is a terrible actor, but I can’t say Chandler Is any less terrible. What good is potential if we never see it? Anyone on Twitter claiming CM talked about this and attributed it to a nervous thing for his character is a liar. Chandler not only doesn’t transcend weak writing, he mocks it. That’s just unacceptable. Those smirks wouldn’t be tolerated in a high school production, and although I agree he’ll be back at some point, Will should be recast. In scenes where Chandler doesn’t smirk, he hasn’t done anything special, even when the writing is there and calls for someone really invested and genuine. As I’ve said before, I blame Ron and production, too. They could have stopped the mess long ago.
  3. That podcast is too much. Freddie acts like he’s some incredible actor, when he’s really awful. He always came to work ready to tape with no rehearsal? Yeah, I can tell. Chandler did at one point say that not being told they were fired was “shi_tty,” but overall kept praising everyone at DAYS and declaring his love for everyone there. it was so obvious he doesn’t want to burn bridges there or harm his career in any way. I. get that, but overdoing the praise was sickening.
  4. I think the show has been very good this week. Things are turning around.
  5. I won’t miss either of them, and I don’t think they added anything as far as gay visibility, gay representation, or anything else. The writing for WilSon has been weak, but the acting? Even worse. Chandler and Freddie stopped trying long ago. Freddie was awful when he tried, because he can’t act. Chandler decided that every scene should be played as a joke, hence the smirks and grins. I called for both actors to be fired and recast years ago, and I fault the show for not getting them in line. No one there watched Massey grin through serious scenes? That’s appalling. On the gay front, there’s nothing to miss. Chandler and Freddie have ZERO chemistry, and touching each other looked like a chore, or worse. If you told me they couldn’t stand each other in real life, I’d believe it. Affection? None. Oh, except for Chandler’s hands around Freddie’s face, which isn’t sexy or hot. Kissing? That’s a laugh. I’ve never seen such tight pursed lips kisses in my life. Then there are the kisses where they avoided each others’ lips entirely. Just awful. What is there for gays to miss when they leave? A reminder that there were two guys who absolutely refused to commit to a gay storyline and seemed to want to announce “We’re not gay” with their acting? Guy Wilson is a weak actor, but damn if he wasn’t 100x better than these two when it came to investing in the gay stuff. So was Christopher Sean. So is the guy who plays Evan. Two legacy characters — ruined by actors who don’t give a damn.
  6. Can they please — finally — kill off Mike???
  7. It is. It’s all so bad. If one character went through “this stuff,” I might be able to enjoy it. But when we get an entire handful of characters playing someone else in one episode? It just sucks.
  8. Theo doesn’t look gross to me. I think he looks hot.
  9. I NEVER said there isn’t an issue with the way Y&R treats black actors and characters. I never cam CLOSE to saying that. I agree with just about everyone here that so many mistakes have been made over the years with black actors that it’s a sin. It’s just a complete shame — so don’t try to turn me into your enemy, or worse. My point is that EVERY show submits stunt or special episodes for the Emmys and other awards — every year. That’s how the awards game is played, both by the show and by the actors. Winning this award in no way makes up for ANYTHING else regarding black actors and storylines. No one watching all of a sudden thinks Y&R has learned it’s lesson and turned a page. The show doesn’t think we’re satisfied either. They’re not stupid or naive. Those shows were beautifully done, making us feel the loss of a character, and more importantly, the loss of a good man. For those few days, black actors were given their due, and we again realized how they enrich our soap. if you want to complain and protest how blacks are treated on the show, that award is not the thing to go after. Use it to support your more than valid views. Don’t trash it and come across like another complainer who’s never satisfied. Y&R is better when our black actors are as front burner as anyone else. Those episodes prove it. Use that proof when you b*tch. Will they listen? From the way things have gone, it’s doubtful. Still, i know they won’t listen if you dump on this award.
  10. I’m sorry, but it’s just frickin ridiculous to say Y&R shouldn’t have submitted the Neil episodes. The fact that those eps have more black characters means they shouldn’t have submitted them? Huh??? If they DIDN’T, you’d say it was because there were too many blacks in those eps. Your entire point is bull$hit. They submitted their best episodes. They won. They deserved the win. NO daytime awards are given for the year’s work. They’re ALL for specific episodes.
  11. I understand the appeal of a Brooke vs Quinn battle, but they lose me for one reason: there is no reason for Quinn to even LISTEN to a Brooke, let alone answer her back and make excuses. That make no sense.
  12. My try was perfect — I knew what you meant. I don’t like Freddie’s looks, period. He looks terrible on the show and I’m not attracted to the guy off the show.
  13. KA has been pushing pure and total camp, and I love it. No matter how bad and absurd the story is, she’s a lot of fun to watch. Freddie Smith can get it? Uh....no thanks. Blecch.
  14. Quinn looks SOOOOOO bad — and old — with her hair wrapped up on her head. That long straight hair look is bad, too. Rena Sofer needs a makeover.
  15. I’ve never seen worse gangsters and police officers in my life. About 7000 shots were fired, and all but a couple missed — even though these idiots were only a few feet away from each other. What a joke.
  16. A beard can’t save Freddie Smith from terrible acting. And speaking of bad acting, Stephen Nichols has been HORRENDOUS this week. My God. It’s been scenery chewing on steroids.
  17. They’re going to ruin Crimson Lights. It’s going to look like crap.
  18. New episodes have been aired the past two days.
  19. I never thought GH would be the soap to pre-empt every day of the hearings and not play any new episode anywhere.
  20. He can’t. Sonny can’t either. On Monday’s show, when he sat face to face with Evan and told him he wanted to be with him, he broke — he grinned/smirked — once again ruining the scene. It disgusts me that he thinks it’s so f—cking funny to play a scene where gay guys tell each other “I like you.”
  21. Guy Wilson committed to the gay scenes — something Chandler weakly does and something Freddie NEVER does. I’d never hire FS or CM for ANY other role solely based on how bad they are during any scene that’s sexual or affectionate. They’re completely unbelievable and make a mockery of all of it.
  22. Same here. With the deaths coming in rat-a-tat style, I felt like I was watching a bad parody of soap operas. It was all too much. I realize the actors get no direction. That means the actors need to do the work on their own. How about checking the tape of a scene once in a while? Sooner or later (but probably sooner), SH would see that she overplays it FAR too often.
  23. I loved Gina Tognoni, but swapping her for Michelle Stafford wasn’t a blunder, and it’s not the reason for falling ratings.
  24. SH doesn’t work for me precisely because of the reasons everyone’s mentioned: she’s good playing sane Kristen, but bad at the crazy stuff. That’s the problem. Kristen is off the rails 85% of the time. I’d beg ED to come back. Kristen doesn’t work with Brady, either. Chandler Massey was mediocre beyond belief this week. He lost the smirk, but it sure wasn’t replaced with anything worth watching. Still, NOTHING matches Freddie Smith’s performance for being worthless. My God, he was bad — worse than usual, and I didn’t think that was possible. His tears and crying were cringeworthy. Someone should have shown him a clip and told him, “You see this? Don’t do that.”
