  1. Amelia is just boring. Joshua Morrow can be decent with the right material. Not great, but decent.
  2. My goodness. I have always disliked her, since she worked at the AVclub. With this piece of writing, I dislike her even more. Season 1 of The Handmaid's Tale was quite good. Season 2 was quite bad. What will season 3 be? I have no idea based on this review, because Emily spends the entire time talking about herself, just like she has always done.
  3. Yeah, kudos to Suzanne Rogers. She's fabulous and I kind of want her to stay off the wagon as long as possible. She's a really fun drunk.
  4. Passions did better in the demos, though, didn't it? ^Not trying to be an [!@#$%^&*] with this comment. Just saying, the decision to cancel AW was right from an economic standpoint by the time you got to 1999. We can still hate NBC and P&G for letting it get so horrible in the first place.
  5. LOL I'm glad it was not just me. I got seriously turned on by him, especially during that scene with Victor where he talked about how much Nicholas/Victoria wanted him gone. It was hot.
  6. It kind of reminds me of Bradley Bell in his prime (sic.) Pervy, degrading, and no attention span, but are you not entertained (russellcrowe.gif)?
  7. It is kind of sad. A lot of women on the show seem kind of low rent. It's not surprising that it was all written by a thirsty gay man.
  8. Kristen destroying her hotel room while Jack and Eve walked by being like, "Oh, poor Nicole" was pretty funny though. This show is so trashy, lol.
  9. Jack has never had a good return. He seriously should have just stayed on African safari or wherever. Why on earth would the show dip its toes in politics? They'd have to be insane to think literally anybody wants to see that. I'm guessing that Kristen pretending to be Nicole sounded like it would be more fun in the writer's room than it has been on screen.
  10. His being back is creating problems for multiple characters and multiple actors who have been asleep for years are waking up. Today's show actually wasn't half bad! Y&R is the only one of the 4 current soaps that occasionally has a heart beat. Balance that with Traci writing a book about Cane and Lily which was totally boring and stupid though.
  11. I haven't watched in a while but I am today and I really like the new Adam. He is really good at being the heel. He has a vague arrogance and narcissism about him that is kind of hot, TBH. And Eric Braeden actually looks alive in scenes with him which is unusual.
  12. Certain characters like Jamie Frame, Tom Hughes, and Mike Horton seemed like Spider-Man or Batman in that they seemed almost preserved in time; the fossilized amber of daytime, if you will.
  13. Nicholas Alamain on DAYS has the record I think. He was a hunk hooking up with Cougar Kate when he only should have been old enough for Kindergarten. It was so wrong.
  14. The Alli Fowler/Lucy Montgomery Rule - the first SORASed actor will become a massive star despite not making much of a splash at the time s/he is on the soap.
  15. The lack of stakes is the major problem with this show nowadays. We know that this weakass tumor most definitely will not kill Will, and even if it did, he’s already come back from the dead once, so really who cares?
  16. It honestly felt to me at the time like this couldn't happen because TPTB didn't remember where they left these characters and couldn't be bothered to check.
  17. Yes, lol, I grew up in an area that does not get severe weather. I mean, we got winter weather, but we were used to it (I am the type of person who laughs at Southern US news reports that are like, "OMG it's snowing, do NOT go outside or you WILL die!") But we had a CBS affiliate that acted like we got Hurricane Katrinas on the regular. I at least tolerated it when they would announce that they would run the show in the middle of the night and you could set your VCR (later DVR) accordingly. It sucked when you were just SOL though, especially pre-internet.
  18. ATWT: When Holden unknowingly slept with Rose when she was pretending to be Lily, she whispered to him what she wanted to do and he got a [!@#$%^&*]-eating grin on his face and said, "I thought you didn't like that?" What was it?! I always interpreted it as anal, lol.
  19. It doesn't... but is it that interesting or remarkable that ATWT had quads if none of them ever become central characters? It's easy to just have the quads, not so easy to write major storylines for all quads.
  20. My understanding of this topic is twins who were born onscreen and both became major characters as adults and neither one was a retcon. The only one I can think of is Sami/Eric on DAYS. And even then, Sami was a much more central character for most of Days' history.
  21. When I was in high school, getting annoyed when there were harsh weather conditions, because I knew it meant the news would interrupt my soap and mess up my VHS recording with what would be outdated information by then.
  22. If it were 80s it would be La Isla Bonita easily. But you're right, her 90s output, though technically superior and more diverse, doesn't lend itself to this kind of event as easily. Oh, I didn't even think of remixes. Have to listen to the Miami Mix of Don't Cry For Me Argentina again as that was a top 10 billboard hit, even though people don't remember it now. I haven't heard it in years either.
