  1. This is all so ridiculous. AFAIK, Adam never waived his parental rights, so what the [!@#$%^&*] are they fighting about?
  2. Again, like w/ Agnes Nixon at her shows, Bill Bell knew that the more babies you saddle a character with, the less places you can go with them creatively. Today, though, writers keep giving characters on-screen children, because -- and I'm paraphrasing someone who said it here some time ago -- a pregnancy storyline, especially one with a WTD? element, has a built in time clock that presents the network less opportunities to interfere with the storytelling.
  3. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/a-day-after-distancing-himself-from-hostile-chant-trump-criticizes-media-for-its-coverage-of-his-rally/2019/07/19/9c094c16-aa12-11e9-9214-246e594de5d5_story.html?fbclid=IwAR2eI8lzbVos2VK1Il_ObpeLdNwqMQyD-6Dt8ztm-PEk_1RLHkwOWxBIQt4&utm_term=.f0e288be03a4 (Also, to the surprise of absolutely no one, he has walk-backed his walk-back on those "incredible patriots" known as the "Send! Her! Back!" chanters.)
  4. Right. Bianca was born on-screen; Kendall and Josh weren't.
  5. Oh, but we will see hostages. And Trump will just magically arrange for their release, just in time for Election Day. Count on it.
  6. Bear in mind, of course, this is from the NYT, who, among many others, want re-election BADLY: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/19/upshot/trump-electoral-college-edge-.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  7. First of all, I'm not a "gurl," or even a girl. Second, it isn't "as far as I am concerned." As far as *I'm* concerned, Y&R would have been better off without MS or Phyllis in the long run. However, Josh Griffith and Tony Morina made it clear that part of their agenda in regaining lost ground in the Nielsens and reclaiming Y&R's "iconic sensibility" was to bring back former actors and/or characters such as MS as Phyllis. That was their overt, explicit agenda, not mine -- and so far, at least, that agenda has been a failure. Perhaps, GT didn't bring the viewers either, but I tend to blame that more on the abysmal writing than I do on her performance. Gina ain't my cup of ramen anymore than MS isn't, but even I know she knows how to inhabit a character without resorting to behaving like a featured player on SNL.
  8. Yeah, unless he has a wife and/or kid on the side, or he once roofied a girl at some party, I couldn't care less about Kyle's past.
  9. Right. Just as it's also fact that her return has yet to set Y&R's ratings on fire. I mean, they're on fire, yes, but more like in a "Viking death ship" sort of way.
  10. That's for damn sure! Kyle used to act like he had balls! And a brain! But mostly balls!
  11. That's not nuance. That's mugging. MS is like the drunk girl who flashes her breasts on-camera while the otherwise oblivious TV news reporter is in front of her, reporting on local reaction at a sports bar to that night's Super Bowl.
  12. Oh, for God's sake. Michael and Laurie are the Victor and Nikki of the slasher film genre.
  13. I think the reason why Erica didn't have children right away was because Agnes Nixon knew that children would tie Erica down, so to speak, and limit storyline possibilities for her. And of those five kids, only one (Joey) was not abducted from her as an infant.
  14. Unfortunately, humans never choose the hard truth over the easy lie. That's why, even today, we still have people insisting (among other things) that Oswald had help in killing Kennedy, or that the moon landing was a NASA-perpetrated hoax in order to beat the Russians in the Space Race. Progress and enlightenment have always been made by dragging people toward it, kicking and screaming every step of the way.
  15. Lauren should give Kevin third-degree burns instead.
