  1. This show was mortally wounded years ago, but I did enjoy the first quarter of this year. Maybe it was just a delayed honeymoon period because even MAB’s first few months felt like a big improvement from the previous regime, and we know how repulsive her stories were. But I feel like once JT was killed the show became borderline unwatchable. And they are also using Marla Adams a lot less. These charismatic actors made the show somehow seem better. I don’t know: all of the veteran actors feel flat. Even Jess, who can be OTT in a great soapy way, felt shrill and looked uncomfortable in the scenes I watched from Monday.
  2. It’s funny how it never felt as glaring when someone as bad as Ronn Moss was in scenes with Susan Flannery and KKL because RM’s woodenness became just part of Ridge. But these guys were just thrust upon us out of nowhere.
  3. This is a very strange and slapdash of doing That Black Storyline™️. All three actors are dire, but I disagree that Zoe is the worst of the three. I was actually embarrassed for Courtney Hope and Heather Tom for having to keep straight faces while these guys strained to emote. It’s a shame: B&B has done their black cast dirty, but they’ve usually hired solid to excellent black actors.
  4. I was expecting worse given it was up against the World Cup final. The full day ratings for Saturday, conclusion of Nadal/Djokovic and the Kerber/Serena final, was up 86 percent over from 2017, most likely due to Serena’s return.
  5. At one of my old jobs, I organized a web chat years ago to promote the first season of Ladies of London, and from my limited contact with the cast, Annabelle was by far the most easygoing. This is terribly sad.
  6. I try to stay out of this thread, but I thought this was a bit funny.
  7. This actually bothered me a lot in the final and other matches as well. Lots of missed serves because the camera was lingering elsewhere. ESPN did a very poor job this Wimbledon, and it wasn’t much better last year. It’s almost as if they didn’t value the actual sport being played.
  8. MBE and SN were so stiff on GH. Some of that was the writing, but I never enjoyed Stefan and Katherine.
  9. Novak and Angie cutting a rug.
  10. Macron dabbing in the locker room with the French team! 😂
  11. Race to London: 1. Nadal 2. Federer 3. Zverev 4. Del Potro 5. Djokovic 6. Thiem 7. Cilic 8. Anderson Race to Singapore: 1. Halep 2. Kerber 3. Wozniacki 4. Kvitova 5. Svitolina 6. Stephens 7. Kasatkina 8. Pliskova Serena is #17.

    First teaser with 13 and the new companions:
  13. I know you hated the semifinalists, but doesn’t Anderson’s rise give you hope for a player you do like, like Berdych? Same age as Anderson. Had far better results throughout his career than Anderson. Better record against the Big 4. Like Anderson, has been known to crumble mentally at big moments. Last year, Berdych made the semis here and played well against Federer. Held match points against him in Miami last year. He was looking resurgent. With the right guidance, he could turn his career around too.
  14. France is running away with it now.
  15. But also think of what Nadal did. Made the Wimbledon SF after a grueling clay season (four titles and Davis Cup) with his very physical style of play and at his age, yet we make excuses for players like Zverev and the others for being out of gas.
  16. Novak Djokovic is back! 4th Wimbledon, 13th Grand Slam title! Breaks tie for 4th most ever GS titles with Roy Emerson and stands one behind Pete Sampras. As a consolation prize, Kevin Anderson has a SICK body.
