I hope that this kidnapping storyline with Bess wraps up soon, I'm ready to see Jessica fully realize that the real Chloe is dead.

The Rex/Gigi/Stacy stuff is pretty stupid, I hate this storyline, even though I liked it at first. As long as Rex/Gigi are apart I'll be fine.

I hope Stacy beats her @$$ in the catfight they're supposed to have.

Really, because for me it's the other way around. I just can't get behind and root for the character of Stacy. She still feels like a stranger to me even if she has been on my screen every day for the last 5 months. I know nothing about her motivations and Crystal Hunt has played the character void of any personality and emotion. The only time I made a connection with her character was in her scenes with Clifton Scott after Schy's his fight with Todd. The fact that she shares no chemistry at all with JPL doesn't help this storyline either. Although, I think CH has great chemistry with CS. I also think that of FF. She and CS had great chemistry together in there scenes last week. I could get behind that pairing but Stacy and Rex share no chemistry at all IMO.

I must also admit that I read spoilers for the next couple of weeks to and I'm actually excited for what's coming. I only hope it plays out just as well as it reads.

And her face doesn't move.

Her facial expressions are limited to wanton & whore.

I'm not sure if anyone on the show has chemistry with him. Not a love interest. The friendship with Bo was driven into the ground, and he stopped caring about Natalie sometime last year.

I forgot about her, that was such a long time ago. He could work with Lindsey.

Oh and I don't see that working at all. If Lindsay is going to be paired with someone I think it should be Clint. CH and JVD had crazy hot chemistry during the BE takeover storyline last year IMO. Let them both be bad together.

I don't think JvD works as bad Clint. When they tried this with Clint's efforts to bring Ray to town and deport Langston, it all seemed very forced. Perhaps with better writing for Clint, he'd be better, but they don't write for Clint now.

I was just thinking of Lindsay/Rex because JPL takes up so much airtime with women he has no spark with, so if he's going to keep being pushed at people, they could at least give him a love interest he would work with.

Word.

I also agree, JvD didn't work as bad Clint during the Montez plot because that's all it was, a plot point. I liked bad Clint at the beginning of the story, when the Buch's had no idea who was trying to takeover the company and Lindsay was feeding him info and he was trying to hold on to everything his father had left for his family. I liked as they slowly showed him change into the one thing he hated and argued with Asa about. But they dropped the story after the takeover and picked it up only to wrap it up in record time. They missed all the beats which is a shame because then Clint and Lindsay could have really worked IMO.

Are TPTB doing Bo/Nora again?

Rex is an idiot, and he calls himself a PI. In what universe?

I'm actually liking Gigi and Skylar, guess it's the fact that she's away from Rex and Stacy. I guess.

God, I cannot wait to see Viki bring out Jean so we can get rid of Bess.

    • I was just wondering, ... how many nights was BARE ESSENCE? But, I honestly can't imagine it in today's world. 
    • While the shared viewing aspect of big media is gone (see last night's SNL Hollywood Quiz sketch), it seems like Netflix and HBOMax are incapable of producing content that isn't multiple episodes. 
    • It's funny that they mention the shift from American Express commercials to vitamin supplement ads when they couldn't get big name sponsors because if you were to tune into Fox news on any given night that's all they sell, walk-in tubs and those automated chairs to carry folks up the stairs.
    • The New York Post explains why Dr. Phil is ending. https://nypost.com/2023/02/05/dr-phil-tried-to-revamp-in-final-months-as-sponsors-fled-sources/ For the TL;DR crowd ... It's for multiple reasons: -- The credibility's gone; people tend to link Dr. Phil with Dr. Oz. -- A-list sponsors and big-name panelists fled. -- Focusing on harder news topics didn't work. -- Backstage morale sucks; 25 jobs were cut and before then, it was a toxic workplace.
    • Yup, ABC's last biggies underperformed. Space is actually slightly more extreme than The Winds of War. It took up 13 out of a potential 16 hours in its original five-night span.   It is interesting to think how these sort of things were shared by the viewing audience. Can you imagine throwing "Thorn Birds parties" for four straight nights (during Holy Week, incidentally!) of 1983?
