10 more days (?) untill this show finally has a deservingly called lead ACTOR back in its fold...

If it's who I'm thinking of, you're ass can forget about the ACTOR getting a "lead" story.

You should know better than that!

OMG. Brad. Don't you DARE pull me back in!

Brad's so evil - and so are we. ;)

We gotta give it to this show: just when you think I'm done! This is the last straw!, something amazing happens and you're back where you were. Watching regularly.

Let me say that I'm cautiously optimistic that the current re-positioning of characters will 1) have a positive impact and 2) will last longer than two weeks.

A great vid about B&B's greatest duo right now:

BTW: Is there a way to embed with the new board????

What is with all these adult children trying to push their children together.

It was bad enough that Thorne/Felicia keep tag-teaming to reunite Eric/Stephanie...but now the nauseating Thomas/Stephie have to do the same for the nauseating Ridge/Taylor?

You know how B&B keeps drawing us in? That's true...but then the very next day it repels us.

This show is just too convenient to watch! it's like Y&R will get you all jazzed up and you're like - well damn let's watch B&B cause u like the groove and ur just watching in horror as it descends into stupid, lameness.

What sort of gurantee do they do they give 30-min soap actors i wonder. Are they about done with BSJr? All that heat then he leaves like a Batman (60's tv show) villain "Till next time we meet".

And one plea I will never get tired of hearing nor saying........Heather Tom....baby PLEASE come home to Y&R!!!

Great explanation.

And vis-a-vis Heather Tom....keep hope alive! I'm actually feeling it a bit....

ETA: Is this below the opening that is REALLY USED for B&B (Amour, Gloire et Beaute) nowadays? It has sure changed a lot from the early 90s when they used the American opening with this French song). Can ANYONE help me by giving a link or writing out the lyrics??

Nope. Most, if not all, of the international airings have adopted the more recent title card, or variation of it, with their country's theme music for the show.

The French version uses an updated version of that song that slows down in the same place where we see the shoe and the washboard abs with the female model continuing to pose as the guy takes pictures of her, leading into the eyes which fades into the title card.

The Italian B&B theme is great, IMO. And the Italians use the updated title card as well.

You should YouTube these sometime, Mark.

I tried, actually, to youtube these...but I don't seem to have the right search terms. Will look some more....

ETA: FrenchFan sent me this summary of the lyrics, and a description of the music change that is similar to what you wrote:

This opening was used indeed for the episodes from the early 90s' to late 2003. When B&B changed its opening with the current one, it was also changed in France but the music remained this used on the clip, only with a more "jazzy" arrangement.

Here are the lyrics (I will try to translate them "correctly"):

Amour, gloire et beauté (Love, glory and beauty)

Des mots qui font rêver (words that make us dream)

Des têtes qui font tourner (make our heads spin)

Depuis l'éternité (since eternity)

Amour, gloire et beauté (Love, glory and beauty)

C'est comme la liberté (it's like freedom)

On doit en hériter (it must be inherited from)

Sinon, faut les gagner (or you have to win it)
