B&B Discussion: Week of June 11th


Recommended Posts

I just bet that somebody is going to interrupt again and keep Bridget from telling Taylor about the baby tomorrow.

Today's episode was kind of blah. It even had filler flashbacks.

I'm interested in seeing a rivalry between Brooke and Ashley. Not the fighting over Ridge part, but just them. Ashley isn't a Taylor and should be an interesting foil for Brooke.

I don't really care about the Rick/Phoebe/Constantine mess and I'm hearing that this is one of the big summer stories. Oh, Lawd!

Where's Thorne, Felicia, Pam, Eric...

A Brooke/Ashley rivalry would ROCK! It must happen. Just wait until Brooke finds out Ashley has been doing Rick. That should get the ball rolling!

When did Taylor get those extensions in her hair?

In between last night and this morning... (B&B time) On Thursday she had shorter hair but on Friday's episode voilà...

I'm indifferent about the teen/twens: Don't care so much for their love story but the singing is great so far. We'll also get a Hollywood location shoot very soon which I'm looking very much forward to... :)

I'm over Phoebe and Constantine. Rick isn't as bad to me as he seems to be for other people, but Constantine can go, like, yesterday, and if Phoebe doesn't get facets to her character other than "Saint Taylor Redux," I'll probably fast-forward the entire thing.

Haha...I actually enjoyed seeing her. Y&R is in the pits right now and so is B&B. If Christine hadnt been on I wouldnt have watched today.

LOL! I enjoyed seeing her, too. I haven't seen her a good long while.

so who is Brooke in love with this week? Ridge or Nick?

Ha! I suppose Ridge, although she was having flashbacks of Nick just yesterday. I think she's confused.

I was thrilled to see Christine today. It was great seeing her next to Stephanie.

The weird doctor's attack on Bridgette was bizarre and unsettling.

Yeah, it was. They were kind of threatening her. And something's up with that one guy. I think he wore glasses, I can't remember. I'm surprised so much is going on at the hospital instead of on the runway.

OH, MY GOD! It's the BUG!!!!!

LMAO!

Not only has it been quite a while since we've seen her but especially her being BUGged hasn't happened in a long time???

Forgot to add: I really LIKE Christine.

This is worth posting from last Friday, BTW.

Another hair extension miracle. Hopefully Taylor is aware was nearly killed after she got those extensions in 2000. A sign of death in LA. LOL!

so how many other Y&R castaways will wash up on B&B.

Bring Jill and Jack to B&B and I will be in heaven. Then, Y&R could cripple and die as it already is and I would not care one iota.

As I understand Lauralee Bell is only recurring so far. We'll see. Ashley and Chris never shared a man so far. I'm sure Brooke can tell them how easy that happens in LA. :lol:

    • Bill Bell recast Y&R Ashley twice (1988 and 1996) and in hindsight, neither worked. Can we think of anyone who would have worked in either 1988 or 1996?
    • Dorothy McGuire's arc was two months, May-July 1984. I think it was mentioned here that it was a big deal back then for Y&R to get a Golden Age Hollywood actress in a short arc.
    • While I agree that the writing in 1980 did not match the prior regime, but I would argue that the conception of new citizens of Bay City was intriguing.  Having a character based on the story of Patty Hearst was unique.  The idea of a character hiding from her past is a soap staple, but a nurse who is actually an heiress that had experienced a kidnapping attempt is unique.  Of course, it is ridiculous that after trying to change her name, the entire family would follow her to town, but I particularly liked Rick and his romance with Marianne. I also enjoyed the Cecile/Pat feud at Brava. It was one of the only times that Cecile was written as smart and conniving. And, I think it was good writing to use their feud as the introduction of the Harry Must Die book which became the clue in Janice's plot to poison Mac.  Given that Iris was being spun off to Texas, I think Miranda was good substitute.  She was well placed to be a rival for Mac's affection as well as a plaything for the nefarious Philip Lyons.  Also, Jason's relationship with Tracy was interesting and it is the only role that I enjoyed as played by smarmy-guy-specialist Warren Burton It is one of those times in soap history when it is hard to pinpoint the cause of the issue because with the change in tone from Lemay, the loss of Willis and Iris, and the increased competition from OLTL it became a big ship to readjust.  It was still an adult oriented soap, which I appreciate, even though there were heightened story elements that were uncharacteristic.  It may be that I am a Tom King apologist (as well as a Lemay fan), but I think there is a lot of blame to spread all around at the time, and it wasn't just King's fault.
    • Tom Langan cast several 1980s Y&R actors on Reilly's Days: Deborah Adair, Eileen Davidson, Nick Benedict, Jaime Lyn Bauer, Lauren Koslow.
    • @dragonflies The chris evans you linked to is the same Twitter user that got EB trending in Summer 2021. I really hope these lack of appearances are due to EB's recovery from knee surgery, and not his role being reduced.
