I thought the pacing was good, the acting energized, and it was very clear there was a new boss in the house. But as much as I thought RPG and BE did well in their scenes, I just thought the war debate was about as contrived and un-organic as it could get. Like, there was a big neon sign that said "social issue story" flashing over their heads. Two rebuttals I've heard so many times over the last five years on various news shows... and various bars I hang out in... I could have written that script in my sleep. There had to be a better way to get into it than that.

ETA: Same with Angie and Jesse. The talk over the past was just flung at us, out of nowhere, off of a couple hang-ups? (That could just be wrong numbers. It only happened once to Angie at home, and once to Jesse on his cell phone. I get them all the time at my place.) It wasn't the smoothest transition from yesterday, that's for sure. But I did like a lot of what I saw, in spite of the clunkiness.

I am relieved to see that Pratt seems to be quite interested in fleshing out Angie and Jesse. It seems natural the past would come up.....

Kendall just STFU but it was nice to see old stubborn Kendall show up today and how Zach knew exactly how to handle her. Hopefully Pratt gets Kendall more focused on her own problems than others. Cause she has alot right now.

Last I heard she was on recurring but TPTB love her and are negotiating a long term contract with her :)

    • I just learned that actor Barry Newman (John Barnes on The Edge of Night) died on May 11.         Barry Newman, Star of ‘Vanishing Point’ and ‘The Limey,' Dead at 92 Newman — who died on May 11 — "was a rock for so many people," his wife, Angela, said By  Marisa Sullivan     Published on June 5, 2023 08:07 AM SKIP ADS Barry Newman, known for his role in the cult action thriller The Vanishing Point, died on May 11 in a New York City hospital, according to multiple reports.   The Emmy-nominated star was 92 years old. No further details have been released on his death.   Newman is survived by his wife, Angela, who confirmed her husband's death on Sunday to The Hollywood Reporter. His friends also confirmed the news on social media, per Deadline.   In a tribute shared with THR, Angela expressed that Newman “was a rock for so many people, whose spirit he lifted and allowed to be free,” she said. “He was truly a light for so many, with an incredible, hilarious sense of humor that lit everything and everyone up.”   AMANDA EDWARDS/WIREIMAGE The stage, screen and TV actor, who is also known for his starring role in the 1974 legal drama, Petrocelli, grew up in Boston. While studying at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, he met Lee Strasberg and decided he wanted to be an actor. After graduating, he studied with the influential acting teacher in the Big Apple.     Newman went on to star in feature films such as Daylight in 1996 with Sylvester Stallone, Bowfinger with Steve Martin in 1999 and with the late Peter Fonda in Stephen Soderbergh's The Limey that same year.
    • Newman was lured back in 1993.. and the plan had been originally to do a Harley/Mallet/Josh triangle.. but I'm guessing between the time the show was trying to pure Newman back and him agreeing.. both Beth E and Mark D opted to quit the show. I remember Josh first coming back with him coming to Harley and she basically letting him have it for basically dumping her and then expecting to come back like nothing happened.  Plus Mallet/Josh butted heads because of Julie/Dylan's busted wedding.   However, the back up plan for Josh (Tangie) didn't work.
    • So here we are in May and AW and ATWT are still strong. So I guess it is over Summer that GH will jump into the Top 5 and AW will begin to dip with ATWT also dropping.
