  1. Wow, this show feels frantic. Whoever said that things feel like watching with the fast-forward button on was right. Scott goes from his jail jumpsuit to all suited up and smiling after his arraignment within mere minutes. The "catfight" between Lauren and Sharon was cringeworthy as was Gloria's slap of Billy. Meanwhile, the Abby/Zack scene moved at a snail's pace while everything else was flying at a fast clip. It almost feels like a parody at this point.
  2. Bethany Joy Lenz (ex-Reva/Michelle, GL) is joining Grey's Anatomy. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/greys-anatomy-enlists-bethany-joy-lenz-season-14-arc-1052280
  3. I actually think Wes looks better now than he did on GL or in Latter Days. He used to be so tanorexic. (Tangent: speaking of LD, it appears Steve Sandvoss has become Max Sandvoss and is a farmer.)
  4. Max Greenfield Wow at the gay Jared Kushner joke.
  5. I read Vulture. I saw this, thought it sucked, and brought it here since I'd spoken about the show in the past. That's pretty much the extent of it.
  6. Lol. I'll be fine ignoring the show like most other viewers.
  7. That's the problem. It fails both as an homage AND a show for new audiences. It's anachronistic in so many ways but tries superficially to feel new and oh so 2017. No one was really asking for this, and the poor producers knew what they signed up for.
  8. I just don't think it was worth it. It looks cheap just like the rest of the show. Give a title screen that provides a hint of the old theme and run the credits over the following scene like all the other primetime shows.
  9. The new opening credits premiere tonight. Here's a clip. So. Bad. http://www.vulture.com/2017/10/dynasty-reboot-opening-credits.html
  10. I just flipped past the first MY-written episode today, and wow, the lighting is so bad on this show. It's somehow both too harsh and too dark. The shot of Billy's legs dangling as seen from Phyllis's window felt very cheeky in that British soap way.
  11. I see there'd been some news interruptions that day (10/13). Sucks. The social platforms were really pushing tune-in for Friday.
  12. How strange that DAYS would drop so much for the most promoted episode of the week, Sami's return.
  13. Kayla's certainly better than Katherine Bell, which was my real intro to MBE. She can be solid when she has something to do and plays within her strengths.
  14. I like Nichols and Evans but agree that Patch and Kayla feel anachronistic. Not sure what the point of them is on today's show, especially with the Bradys not really having a strong presence in Salem.
  15. Yeah, it's pretty upsetting. I've seen a few of Toback's movies (not a fan), but I wasn't aware of his predator reputation.
  16. Agree with most of the praise. Some of this is because of the low expectations after the dismal last few seasons of the initial run. But it is sort of settling into becoming sort of a latter-day Golden Girls, but gayer (if that's possible). I am finding the Grace/Karen interactions less appealing than the Will/Jack ones. They don't seem to be as able to mine comedy from them. The shower bit from the second episode and the sexual harassment of the male assistant fell flat for me. That's not a diss on Debra or Megan, who still find ways to shine. The third episode with the focus on Grace and Harry Connick Jr. (hate him) was zzzzzz. Andrew Rannells is sexy, as was shown on Girls. He deserves his own adult-oriented series where he gets to be naked as much as possible. Like a Queer As Folk-type vehicle. Eric McCormack looks great, and he's owning the gayness of the role much more now. For me, even more than Sean (who we all knew was brilliant), he's the revelation in the reboot.
  17. I can only imagine how agonizing this must be for him and how doubly traumatic for this incident to be made public. But thoughts with him as he hopefully gets some treatment/medical and therapeutic intervention. And perhaps it will be somewhat comforting to know he has the support of colleagues and fans.
  18. Terri Conn (ex-Katie, ATWT) relays a disgusting and terrifying story of sexual harassment from indie director James Toback in a larger exposé on him from the LA Times. Just sickening. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-mn-james-toback-sexual-harassment-allegations-20171018-story,amp.html
  19. Ingo and Manu Bennett were key to my gay awakening when Paradise Beach aired in the U.S. So I'll always have a fondness for them. But yeah. That turtleneck is... unfortunate.
  20. If they hired Zoe Lucker as Alexis, I'd watch. She might be a touch young (43) and of course she's no Joan, but I'd just love to see her play a rich, fabulous bitch again after Tonya from Footballers' Wives.
  21. Not that anyone is checking for this, but just saw Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R) in a preview for next week's episode of "The Good Doctor."
  22. Really really beautiful episodes! Thanks for sharing! Terry Lester was a god, and Eileen was stunning. She had a few unfortunate hairdos during the '80s (who didn't?), but I love seeing her so fresh-faced with the wet hair.
  23. I'm not sure, but there's been a steady decline in the number of younger actors on soaps in the past decade or so. (Look at how embarrassing the younger actor Emmy nominees are each year, even compared to the other diminished categories.) Maybe it's because of budget and declines in the younger demos. I'd guess a lot of it is because so many soaps have been cancelled, and the few remaining shows started poaching established soap hunks, leaving little room/budget for newbies? Again, that's a wild guess.
  24. DAYS is really the only soap that features male actors in their 20s. The others have all but given up.
