  1. That is honestly such a shame. Can we as a SON community all commit to making this meme happen?
  2. I loved that storyline, but god do I hate the “witness/suspect snaps under interrogation and volunteers the truth for no reason” trope. It’s common on L&O and it’s just a deus ex machina IMO. But Cynthia Watros is fabulous in those scenes and makes up for the lazy writing. One thing that struck me: I don’t remember the 90s lighting being so bright and the wardrobe so white/pastel.
  3. Loving the clips in this thread. Linda Dano is a fantastic alcoholic. I think my problem with TV shows is that they usually make alcoholism look more “fun” than it really is. Felicia is just miserable to deal with in those scenes, and so different from how Felicia was pre-alcoholism. That Kristen/Marlena clip is another gem. I think I had actually scene this one before, but damn it is so good and D Hall/Eileen Davidson are gold together. Plus the fact that these two have been at it so long adds a certain je ne sais quoi. But my favorite has to be that Ross/Blake/Holly scene. It reminds me of what is missing in modern soaps: Stakes. And it reminds me of how miscast Liz Keifer was. What makes this work is Sherry Stringfield’s youth and energy, and the realization that Ross is a bit more freaky than he or anybody else knew.
  4. Pelosi uninviting Trump to the SOTU was a brilliant move on her part. She has played the shutdown damn near perfectly.
  5. *blinks* *shakes head* Umm... sorry.... what was the question again?
  6. I do think it’s the best soap still on the air, but it’s still not good.
  7. I love this movie. It’s bloody brilliant. How in the world do Barbie dolls make me emotional? But they do in this film.
  8. Well, the problem is a lot of my favorites from her were not hits and a lot of her hits have not aged well. i agree with “rain” and I would also add “rescue me,” “you’ll see,” and “human nature.” i cant stand “material girl” and I don’t think Madonna can either, lol.
  9. I remember the Scotland storyline was not well-received, but that really wasn't the actors' fault. I remember that Bonnie was recast later on, but I can't for the life of me remember a thing about the recast. They did that way too much in the last decade.
  10. Just saw Napeira Groves (Bonnie) and Tamara Tunie (Jessica) on Say Yes to the Dress. Don't know how old the episode was, but they both looked great and I think it's cool that they've stayed close.
  11. Weird that Obama is saying Republicans “will never stop” regarding healthcare when the Dems have moved from the ACA to single payer within a decade. also weird that Obama is active at all since we didn’t hear a peep from George W. Bush during his presidency. I am old enough to remember when Antonio Sabato Jr. was practically a god to gays. We fed his career and he knew it and catered to us. All it took was becoming a Republican to undo that. the gay movement has just become something I can’t support. I will happily state I’m a gay man against what the gay movement has become. The gay movement are now the bullies. Shame on them. I’m not LGBTQ. I’m old fashioned gay. I am government stay out of sex gay.
  12. And Stacey Abrams totally didn't just refuse to concede her election. Not at all. Tell me again how Trump refusing to accept the results of the 2016 election (assuming he lost) was going to irreparably ruin our democracy. Geez Louise.
  13. I haven’t watched an episode in months but you guys really crack me up in this thread. The days discussion thread is the first one I check when I come here.
  14. This thread is addictively dishy. Headed to this tumblr immediately.
  15. I’ll do best (not necessarily best, but most influential/unique) soap by decade. 1960s: ATWT pioneered the genre, gave us those soapy tropes that the genre would come back to over and over. 1970s: Y&R really put the focus on youth and beauty. Sex sells. Great music and production can make a difference. 1980s: GH supercouples and big moments are what you need on your soap. Soaps can have mainstream appeal when they play that up. 1990s: DAYS You can play up the old soap tropes, while adapting them to fit a modern narrative. A blend of traditional 60s ATWT, 70s sex appeal y&r, 80s GH supercouples, with supernatural added. 2000s: Passions Really a combination of the 70s Y&R focus on youth and the 90s supernatural Days, but to the extreme. Set at the glacial pace of 60s ATWT, with the supercouples of 80s GH (without the substance.) basically, taking the lessons of the previous 4 decades and playing them to their logical extremes. 2010s: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  16. Omfg. Yes. This. im the Republican (ex-Democrat) that many have blocked and I agree on this post 100% Congress punted difficult issues to the presidency and the courts and that is what got us into this mess to begin with. Yes. If we can agree on that, it is indeed a start.
  17. Well people on this thread started blocking me when I said things they disagreed with, so yes, those people WOULD think that Garland support was universal.
  18. And how exactly are the FBI supposed to investigate an allegation that we don't where when or where it occurred because the accuser can't remember? Also, liberals' sudden love and devotion for the FBI is really weird. It is clearly a political stalling tactic on behalf of the Democrats. Once Ford refused to testify, the tide turned back in Kavanaugh's favor, and that is evident. Garland didn't have the votes to be confirmed, but I always thought McConnell should have given him a hearing. Now I see why he didn't. It was the right move.
  19. Lol at the above. Well as long as you’re all in agreement. Kavanuagh’s accuser is def credible but Ellison’s is totally a lying slut. Just because. There’s no evidence either way on either account. But Ellison’s accuser is an inconvenient whore. Toats. mazie Hirono said men should just shut up today. So I guess if I’m to listen to the democrat message I will do that.
  20. My god y’all are brainwashed. Everyone jumping to Ellison’s defense because there is no proof and shaming his accuser are “feminists.” i am being demonized for pointing out there is no proof against Kavanaugh. and the “theatrics” I was referring to isn’t the accusation, it was the democrats’ conduct during the hearings. get a grip, y’all.
  21. There is an allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, there is also an allegation against Deputy Chair of the Democratic Party Keith Ellison. Guess which one the Democrats are outraged over and which one they're sweeping under the rug... the "pro-woman" party... If I were Donald Trump, I would withdraw Brett Kavanaugh's nomination immediately and nominate Amy Coney Barrett ASAP. Let the Democrats re-enact their shameful theatrics again before election day and see if people buy it again. Try arguing that she raped somebody. He should have just nominated her in the first place.
  22. They definitely haven't known what to do with him for at least 20 years now. But it's not the first one I would have fired. Why does Christian LeBlanc still have a job? Didn't they re-hire Greg Rikaart? It is sad, though. Y&R has always been the gold standard of daytime. Now, it hasn't really been that since LML, but it kept up that appearance. But it is finally all catching up with them. Far from cathartic, it's so sad. Just cancel these remaining soaps already, jeez...
  23. I had no problems with her initial comments to Ramos that maybe he thought she was cheating, but she wasn't and she just wanted to clear the air. But smashing her racquet and continuing to carry on back and forth with him? Yes, she should be held responsible. Part of being an adult and a good sport is keeping your emotions in check. It's not fair to Naomi and she has nobody to blame but herself for those actions she chose to take. Why is Serena not responsible for Naomi but Ramos is responsible for every umpire that has officiated Nadal? Come on now, it's double standards. Serena made Naomi's first slam all about herself and it does make me think less of her. But then again my opinions on her don't hurt her one bit. Let me step back for a minute though because I realize I have cheered on Djokovic's bad behavior in the past. I don't excuse her smashing her racquet. There is something to be said for treating the men the same as the women, but I think Serena could have handled this better. My opinions on this are more complex than my initial reaction.
  24. Naomi Osaka just played the match of her life, and it’s tainted because of Serena’s behavior. I have lost so much respect for Serena today.
  25. Of course there’s a reason. Same reason Newt Gingrich suddenly started saying nice things about Bill Clinton when Obama was president. Politicans are all a bunch of whores.
