  1. The Politics Thread

    I'll bet that when the Obamas read that column, they just laughed and laughed and laughed. (I know I would.) FB is filth, but it's the only social media platform that I will use, and the only way I can keep in touch with many of my former schoolmates.
  2. All "Unmasked" Moments in Soaps

    But it's stupid to assume one could approximate another's face AND voice AND height AND build AND gait simply by donning a latex mask and wig. It's insulting to the other characters' intelligence, and it's insulting to the viewers' intelligence as well. And yes, I realize that's not the point of this thread, but I'm sorry. I cannot condone any line of thinking that argues that plot twists such as these make for good drama.
  3. Y&R: July Spoilers

    Yep, she's roadkill. Pun intended. Damn, Y&R. Just...damn.
  4. "The Conners" Discussion Thread

    Because her last attempt at a talk show went so well.

    He'll be the new Adam.
  6. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    And the sad part? I mean, the REALLY sad part? It ain't even gonna last. Sooner or later, they're gonna hit a wall with this "Nick at Night" story, for the same reason they've appeared to hit a wall with Nick NOT being a darker character: Joshua Morrow. Can't. Act.
  7. The Politics Thread

    For a second, I saw the name "Kristin Davis" and I thought, "OMG, what does Charlotte have to do with any of this!?". Well, I know I've said on at least one occasion that I thought Stormygate, and not Russia, could be his undoing. But I consider Susan McDougal kind of a side plot, spun off from Stormygate -- which, in and of itself, could prove to be part of the Proteus-like umbrella story that is Russia. #itallconnects Oh, wouldn't THAT be something. The Clintons and Trump, side by side, in the same damn scandal. I feel like people on the left AND the right would commit mass suicide.
  8. The Politics Thread

    I know there has to be a connection between Karen McDougal, Stormy Daniels and Russia. There just has to be.

    He is the Highlander.

    Wanna bet he's J.T. with a new face?

    A month or two? Try before they cut to the next commercial.
  13. The Politics Thread

    You know, say what you will about the Clintons: maybe they ARE a pair of vipers, grasping at every bit of power that floats their way. But when they've been right about something, they've been right. Bill warned Hillary's team that overlooking the WWC in their election strategies would cost them big, and he was right. Hillary warned us (like CRAZY) that Trump would be Putin's puppet in the WH, and SHE was right. They've been right about a lot of other things in years past, but you get my drift. As venal as they are, they also know how to read people pretty darn well. I mean, you don't get to be as powerful as they were and still are by being total hayseeds, amirite?
  14. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    YES. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think Victor is keeping JT alive somewhere and torturing the hell outta him.
  15. The Politics Thread

    Tell you what, Sarah, how about if the media, or anyone who isn't a Trumpist, quits going after the Trump administration on every little f**k up, when the Trump administration actually thinks for once before acting or reacting. Oops, too late, here comes another f**k up! Once again, these people are being such hypocrites. Obama couldn't so much as brush his teeth without the right bitching about him.
  16. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    Now THAT would have grabbed my attention. Even with the ridiculous face mask.

    I love you, Susie, but I could never subsist on that kind of lunch, lol.
  18. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    You have to write to an actor's strengths. What did Mal Young see in that man's day-to-day performances that made him think he had the ability to pull this off? You can't just give someone like JM material like this and expect him to rise to the occasion.
  19. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    Well, Y&R right now isn't GL-does-a-rave bad...but it's kissing that line.
  20. The Politics Thread

    In the past year or so, I've read two articles that quote Obama as saying he worries privately whether his presidency might have happened too early. Which is also what I used to feel, back in the day. I used to think the backlash was the consequence of a nation that wasn't yet ready for a president like him and needed more time to GET ready. Freedom from slavery or from Jim Crow segregation didn't happen in a day, I thought; and just as it took generations of white people in this country to come around (however begrudgingly) toward accepting us as equals in the eyes of the law, they need, or needed, generations more toward accepting the possibility that we could be their leaders as well. But, these days...I dunno...maybe y'all are right: maybe it wouldn't have made any difference whether someone like Obama had come along in 2008, or 2088. Americans, as a whole, were never going to be ready for anyone other than a white, male Christian to be their leader. Even as I sit here, still wondering whether forcing them to get ready is what ultimately brought us to this point. Because, as soon as what they always feared would happen did happen, they appeared ready, willing and able to flush the entire American experiment down the old poop-shoot and offer this country up to the highest bidder -- which, in our case, just happens to be Mother Russia. I don't think I'm being too reactionary when I say that there will come a time, very soon, when we hear the news that all elections will be suspended "until further notice." Which means, of course, Trump will have what he wants most: to be president for life.
  21. The Politics Thread

    ...And all because some people couldn't handle a black man being president. Sad. You know, even with all its' many -- and I do mean many -- faults, I still loved living in the United States of America. It's just a shame that I had to watch it die during my lifetime.
  22. The Politics Thread

    Agree! Trump's comments and performance were embarrassing (and probably treasonous), but not at all startling if you've been following along. And if these people now expect the GOP to do anything about it -- boy, do I have news for them!
  23. Classic GH Thread

    It's weird to think a former writer for "The Honeymooners" and "The Phil Silvers Show" also worked on GH. It's also weird that Pat Falken Smith was involved in neither the beginning of the Ice Princess storyline (since, as you say, A.J. Russell pitched it) or in how it turned out (since Thom Racina -- or rather, one of his novels -- ended up being the one to finish it during the WGA strike). Speaking of the Ice Princess, does anyone know how it was supposed to have turned out? Because, as we all know, the original story had nothing at all to do with weather machines.
