GL: Week of Oct. 22

I just finished today's episode. I SHOULD be invested in some of these stories and more importantly, I WANT to be! But while watching the show this morning, I kept falling asleep!

I am liking MB as Marina more lately; her scenes today were pretty good.

Harley is still getting on my nerves. I don't get why she keeps pushing Gus away and I think TPTB are going to try something with her and Cyrus. I hope not, but who knows with these two quacks in charge.

At least there was no Josh/Cassie today (Tue). That's something to be happy about. I fear that when Edmund comes back to Springfield, St. Cassie will be on everyday :wacko:

OMG. :o

Wednesday's ITL totally SUCKED big time! What's with Reva backing up Josh's "calling"?!?

This was a horrible, horrible episode. Sometimes I wish (like we've talked about in other threads) that someone would show GL some pity and pull the plug already.

Maybe come the beginning of the year, we'll have someone else in the HW chair besides DK to go along with the production changes. HOPEFULLY.

^ ^ ^ I'm looking forward to Bill's return, too, Matt. But Edmund is returning only for "Ms. Perfect". I won't say anything else cuz I don't wanna spoil anything for others.

Bill's return is looking a little better. Daniel Cosgrove is a hottie, and he's actually been put on a 3 year contract I think. ;)

I guess I'm one of the few here who like Cassie. I don't see her as perfect. She almost went nuts not that long ago. I also like her with Josh, but this minister story is lame.

The only time I actually liked Cassie, well nuCassie, is when she went crazy. That's the only time, IMO, that I found this character the least bit enjoyable.

And since CASH has been shoved down my throat for a year and a half now, I actually don't "hate" them, but find them utterly annoying and contrived. I usually FF through their scenes, especially the recent baby-talk ones. :angry: They are both sanctimonious and holier-than-thou and it gets on my nerves.

The thing that really bothers me about these two, is that it's obvious that EW/DK are trying to "sell" them as the Pilars of Hope and Virtue for everyone in Springfield. This is a couple that started out adulterous - and Cassie sleeping with her sister's husband when Reva was going through cancer treatment! Since then, EW/DK have worked to systematically remove every enemy that Cassie has ever had (Dinah, Beth, etc), all to show how everyone "loves" her. UGH.

And this couple is the ONLY one in Springfield that is able to overcome every obstacle thrown at them. When Josh had his prison-romp with Reva, did that break them up? NOPE. And that has caused every other couple to call it quits: Harley/Gus, Dinah/Mallet, etc. They are the only couple that can talk things out and work together to solve their problems. Why?

It just bugs me.

Yesterday's show was pretty good, IMO. I hope that Griggs isn't dead, cuz Darnell Williams (is that the actor's name) is an excellent actor. This character could have come across as a cartoon villian, but he really worked to make him more believable.

I like the friendly bantor between Harley and Cyrus, but I hope that TPTB aren't setting up a romantic tryst for them.

And Marina has been more enjoyable to me lately; her scenes with Alex were good yesterday too.

    • Hope so. The current opening is as dull as the show. Some more current and flattering shots would be good especially for MTS. And maybe some variety in the shots rather than having the actors in the same outfit -and sometimes the same pose- in the close up and background shot.
    • BFTD Stories That Stood Out:   Y&R   Victor and the Takeover. I remember that being such a big deal and well drawn out forever and day. And being annoyed every time Victor would be close to leaving and then...something would stall it. And the fallout was something else.    B&B   Does Sheila dying and popping up in L.A. count?   DAYS   I agree with whoever said Will's 2017 return. Not only did he come back...but he had the hots for his boyfriend's first love? If that ain't soapy...   GH   Brenda Barrett. Cuz...BRENDA. lol. That first return was EVERYTHING and while not dead in her other returns...the same thing happens that happened in that first return...instantly heavily attached to the canvas like she never left.   Katherine Bell and the Parapet. Can I mention that? Because it seem like she was dead, dead, dead...until that soapy dramatic Friday cliffhanger when she came into the court the spinning image of her savior Helena. The looks. The fashion. The music. It was PERFECTION. She got a little TOO big for her breeches, but it was still in her character to be that way.    OLTL   I liked the Tale of Two Todds. Though I did prefer Victor to Todd by the end. But crazy as it sounded and camp it had, I liked it then. Speaking of...   Marty's return in the form of Susan Haskell. The story might have been messy and I would probably feel different about it now if I rewatched it, but it was soap. And while the writing might have let me down, SH stayed fascinating to watch from story to story. And I liked that even though they wrote her wrong at the end, there was an attempt at least to course correct.     
    • She probably did bring it up lol.  This time, Brandi should have, if that’s what happened.  These women think they can go back into the fire and not get burned?!?  Like how did Phaedra and Vicky get out of addressing how they left their shows in disgrace, etc. on Ex-Wives s1?!?  Lolol However, Brandi is a tricky subject.  She is sooo desperate to be on Bravo that she will truly bring it… she’ll keep everything moving, but she takes it way too far and alienates herself from everyone.  And then no one will film with her.  And she also obviously can’t drink—she’s simply just not in control of herself, and this isn’t the environment for that because of all the triggers.  Like I’m sure she can get wasted around her real friends, like NY’s Kristen, and just be fun and crazy… but around these other Housewives where there is legit sabotage and paranoia happening, she just loses it.
    • Brandaon Barash and Isabella planned to get married in December. Then they changed their minds and got married (legally) shortly after they got engaged in the summer.  They had second wedding in December as a formal occasion for everyone to attend. Kirsten Storms (formerly Belle on Days, now Maxie on GH) and Brandon Barash were briefly together when he was playing Johnny on GH.  They have a daughter named Harper (who is now 9) and have coparented together every since.  Kirsten said a couple of months ago that she and Brandon were friends and tried a romance but it didn't work but they've remained friends all these years. Isabella was a camp counselor at a camp Harper attended.  Harper loved her and bonded with her first.  Brandon met her as "Harper's camp counselor".  So they met as adults who both cared about Harper.  I know Brandon is a lot older but Harper met Isa first.   The story is that Harper kept begging them to date and get married.  I saw an instagram post from Kirsten Storms indicating her approval. When BB proposed to Isabella, he gave her a diamond ring and he gave Harper diamond earrings, because they are a family together.   They knew each other for a while before they began dating. They dated for 2 or 3 years before he proposed. Her parents were there to assist with the surprise proposal. So after reading the entire story, my personal opinion is that it wasn't what I had assumed at first.  But of course I don't know anyone personally so I actually know nothing.
