  1. Nate's hair is terrible lol, the top isn't shaped properly. He should chop it low and keep a line and tape until it grows long enough where he can fade the sides and maintain the style he's going for better.
  2. Josh Henderson and Pamela Rebecca were the best parts of the last reboot, retool the whole thing around them and add Gary and Val's twins or something to get the show going. Absolutely agree with @Chris B about getting another writer too, Cynthia Cidre sucked at that CBS show she had and she sucked with Dallas, get someone who understands the core hook of the show being the dysfunctional family dynamics and fight for control of Ewing business.
  3. This is where I'm at too. Even Sharon's cancer story which started off interesting is very paint by numbers. I don't mind predictable run of the mill stories so long as the ride is fun but we're not even getting dynamic performances (Stafford seems bored, MCE is lacking her previous passion since the chem with this Adam isn't there, JT doesn't even seem to know wtf he's even playing, etc) or big payoff moments so its all just a lot of blah. Lola and Kyle's marriage is over and she's waltzing around nonchalant like she missed her hair appointment. He's already screwing Summer and she has barely a reaction when she sees them cuddled up???? This is a soap play the drama more, play the beats!
  4. This Amanda story finally got interesting with her interaction with Ripley. They need to somehow keep playing that edge with her, its what MM does best This Adam has brought the lurch factor back to the character, I don't like it tbh and the partnership with Chance is lame and a snooze as is Phyllis' involvement The Sharon cancer story is alright because SC is a decent actress and her side of the canvas has history to be played off of. Very run of the mill story though I hope they have Victoria finally get rid of that ugly blue living room for good with this Billy breakup being played how it is I'd rather watch Kyle with Summer and Lola with Theo so I'm tolerating their material a lot easier
  5. I wish they'd stop bringing Robert Adamson back. Noah is the legacy character they need most for the next generation but RA brings nothing to the table We need Meg Bennett back in the writers room!
  6. I'm mad this still isn't on a streaming site
  7. Wow at her knowing the whole time they filmed this project. Damn this sucks
  8. Enjoyed reading your thoughts @Brolden you are making me want to give the show another rewatch Jo and Billy had an interesting dynamic season 1, I remember she used to call him Bill all the time. Definitely would've been an interesting pairing Darren Star said on the DVD's that they got rid of Sandy because it was annoying having to write a character in show business. I liked her once they killed the accent, the episode where she gets a stalker and the one where she got a part in a movie and forced to take her top off are two of my favorites from season 1. I'm in the group who always liked the young adult moral of the week 90210 format of that season. Like @te. pointed out once Darren leaves they lose that element of morality and realism and its when the show ventures too far into nonsense camp. Still watchable but not as interesting, especially with the cast departures happening soon after. In theory this should have been a much easier show to keep going with cast shifting but the newer character were never developed well they just got launched into stupid stories to fill the void of the ones they were replacing. Sam, who is probably my least favorite character of all time was the last one to really get properly folded into the show dynamics but she sucked lol, just awful and such a blatant replacement for Jo. Allison and Billy are also my favorite couple in the show and I still feel robbed we didn't see them end together. The episode where they first have sex is another all time favorite and the triangle dynamic with Amanda I think is one of the shows best. Doug Savant and the show don't get enough credit for Matt being one of the first gay characters you saw prominently on a show. Aw man I LOVE Michael Mancini lol both the nice guy and sleaze ball he turned into. Jane is another favorite but they went too far into not wanting her to be written as a victim.
  9. Now Devon's too broke to keep a business running? Yikes. I like Mariah's new bartender girlfriend Didn't need Phyllis involved in Sharon's cancer story but they had to find something for Stafford to do Chance and Abby ZZzzzz This Billy story is so been there done thar
  10. I mean he and PB have basically been benched already. The legacies are runninhg Newman and Jabot and neither has a real story of their own at the moment. Just popping up to lecture their kids.
  11. Mishael and Bryton on the front row with the titans is interesting 👀 Happy to have another 4 hopefully they take advantage and invest in a decent regime
  12. They really robbed us of Carly and Robin's daughters growing up as contemporaries?
  13. This is the most I've consistently watched since this regime started so I'll give them some credit and say they've been doing something more right lately I think JG more than any recent showrunner has put vet characters like Michael, Lauren, Paul, Jack, Victor somewhat to pasture. They've either not been on at all or showcased in really weak secondary positions to their offspring.
  14. MO works best when they play up her Abbot/Newman angst. These constant 9 month fail pairings they love to put her in never work out and always end with her love interest getting the axe (Chance is definitely about to fall into those footsteps, he reminds me of the last failure of a Scott recast). Phyllis looks pathetic roaming around a hotel she's been fired from competing with Abby of all people over a guy who could be her son.
