  1. They could have kept that 2019 episode.
  2. Gronk is so annoying. I refuse to watch anything with him in it, even for Venus.
  3. These women definitely need to get a hobby [/Eva Marcille]. The dramas feel so petty on this show right now. At least on NYC little slights are played mostly for comedy, but these harridans are deadly serious. That said, Kyle/Teddi are a two-headed hydra, and if you come for one of them, the other feels obligated to get involved in a kneejerk way, so I understand why Dorit is annoyed. Like STFU, Teddi, I’m talking to Kyle right now, not you!
  4. Gina Rodriguez has had a decent enough career, but... meh. All of the Thomases after Drew Tyler Bell have been absolute himbos. It’s funny that Scott Clifton is so hot in person, but it doesn’t really translate on screen that well.
  5. Totally. Same with reboots and revivals being so popular now. They’ve amassed all of this brand recognition when there was a monoculture. They are household names to begin with, and don’t need a lot of marketing investment to break through the flood of content. One of the reasons why a revival of an old soap (on a different platform because the broadcast ship has sailed) would be waaay more viable than a new one, even though I’d love to see a clean slate of a daily program...
  6. What was the reason Amelia Heinle gave for her divorce from Michael Weatherly? Has she ever opened up about their marriage?
  7. I think B&B really benefited from time slot and its stylistic similarities to its fellow Bell soap Y&R. It’s also interesting that the next youngest soap that survived deep into the 21st century was Y&R itself (1973), so you could really broaden the question as to why everything from the mid-‘70s on failed to survive. It says a lot about the trajectory of soaps as a viable genre. Unless they were mortally wounded by the early ‘80s, the established iconic soaps really overshadowed the newcomers. Just as an addendum: watching soaps are a huge investment of time and profou
  8. I just saw Erika is Cancer Sun/Aquarius Moon (which I can totally see). I’m the reverse: Aquarius Sun/Cancer Moon. Definitely warms my cool nature lol.
  9. Yep. What happened with Shangela was absolute bullish!t, especially after she worked so hard to refine her look and polish her act during her years away from the show. I’ve never understood Ru’s desire to create fake drama on All-Stars in order to differentiate it from the mothership.
  10. As much as I’ve disliked recent All-Stars seasons, I’m all for an untainted season of this show right now.
  11. It’s not that they confused the names. It was the reaction of “Betty White’s not dead? Phew! F*** that other b**** who I don’t know.”
  12. I should have embedded it to skip the ads. But I love that those 1966 clips exist. I think @DRW50 mentioned it was some of Agnes Nixon’s last work on GL?
  13. Again, I wonder if a lot of these pandemic viewership losses will be permanent. When casual viewers break the daily habit (see O.J.), they are awfully hard to get back.
  14. For me, that would have been fine. I’ve never loved junior awards. Let the kids work their way up as daytime veterans and earn it. They were getting enough praise and coverage. But I totally think, for example, Kimberly McCullough would have been recognized for Robin’s HIV story. In primetime, arguably more crowded than daytime, you’d have young breakthroughs like Fred Savage, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, and Claire Danes at the Emmys. It’s all moot since it’s water under the bridge, but we especially don’t need these categories now.
  15. I’m not sure I love Don Diamont’s haircut, but he looked great in this episode. Amazing that they somehow made Kevin a cuddly, wisecracking hero after this. Even after the years of sob stories over his childhood.
  16. My thoughts exactly. She’s just dead-eyed and such a wet blanket. Maybe she hasn’t had an opportunity to “pop,” but a lot of RH “friends” make more out of the little screen time they have. I’ve been souring on Leah in the past few episodes. She tries to be a verbal ninja in her confessionals, but when it comes to her interactions with the women, she’s comparatively timid except for with Sonja. I get that she’s feeling the ladies out a bit, but I’m getting a sense she’s a bit of a poseur and a phony.
  17. From Boca Raton, Florida
  18. Loved Gilly. And Monti Sharp was really GL’s lead (or one of them) for much of the summer of ‘93, after David killed Vinnie (and the whole Macauley West story that brought Joe Lando on).
  19. Beyoncé gets her seventh No. 1 as a solo artist. Oof, where did Ariana/Justin go!?!
  20. How much did that AC/DC song cost them? Chad Duell must have felt so self-conscious in that Magic Milo performance.
