B&B: Week of July 13


Recommended Posts

  • Members

So, when I'm ready to give up B&B for good...

Katie and Bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What scenes today. Heather Tom was finally at the best of her game, playing that smart, inquisitive woman. Playing lust and desire as Bill served as tempter. (Which he did well). Showing strength as she pulled away.

And then, better yet, FINALLY getting under Bill's skin with a spot-on analysis of his hurt and loneliness and the underlying damage that is making him so cold and ruthless.

Heather was terrific -- top of game -- but Don was an even better revelation. His face changed ON A DIME when Katie started getting to him. Instead of that unctuous smile he usually does, his face was a sudden mix of anger and defense. I haven't seen that in years. Not through the whole reliquary did his face ever once register this level of emotion!

Heather is really elevating him.

The scene was sober, well written, well acted.

I watch B&B with two B&B non-fans (ergo, they SHRED this show)...but they stopped and complimented the Bill-Katie scenes, saying it reminded them of Y&R (which is a good thing).

I may have found my new super-couple!

Well DD and Ht may be good, but they will always be their Y&R characters to me. If I wanted to watch Y&R characters, I'd watch Y&R. B&B have great characters on the back burner like Thorne, Felicia, Clarke who they can't write for. I'd rather see them other than Katie and Bill. They're both annoying.

B&B is a big collection of other soap's cast-offs (mostly Y&R) but my god that promo looks good. Rick Hearst is going to rock this out.

I hope Brad writes for all of them.

Myself, because I have NO love for the Forresters, would much rather see this show transformed into Y&R2. So, for me, it is "bring it on". Ric Hearst is another great Y&R tie in...from McCook on down, half this cast comes from Y&R, and so I'd like to see this show be more Y&R like. Yesterday, with Bill and Katie, I finally got a bit of that!

I never really liked Don Diamont on Y&R but I'm intrigued by Bill on B&B so will keep watching :)

it still looks like Taylor has rock/marble furniture :P

I have to admit Hunter looks better lately

Well, I actually enjoyed today's show...at least the Spectra (err...Jackie M) part. Despite myself, Alley Mills had me laughing out load...and the Spectra crew's reactions were part of the party.

I continue to like Bill-Katie...a lot!

Steffy as princess was gagworthy, but how cool to see Victor Alfieri! I wish they wouldn't waste him. I have never seen him with that long hair/beard combo before. He's so handsome, I would have expected to dislike the fur...but he was even sexier with age.

And finally, the scene I was expecting happened. Ridge vs. Bill. For all the Diamont detractors, he performed RINGS around Moss. It wasn't much of a confrontation...but in the play of his eyes and face, Diamont showed how much more accomplished he is than Moss. Moss should be very, very afraid!

Bahahahaha did you hear how Eric told Bill to "Shut up"? like a schoolkid saying "I know you are but what am I??"

THEN HE TOTALLY PULLS A VICTOR AND SAYS HE BUILT THE COMPANY WITH HIS BARE HANDS...

Any last remaining shred of integrity Eric might have had got squandered when:

- in a safe, with Brooke's birthday as combination, he hid the fact that Stephanie was co-owner of Forrester

and then

- he allowed himself to be drizzled in honey in one debasement after another

The Forresters and Logans (save for Brooke, Felicia, Stephanie and Katie) need to be written OFF this show!

I haven't watched B&B in years but a friend filled me in on Brad with a beard, err Bill, vs. Ridge so I saw it online. I never cared much for either Don Diamont or Ronn Moss, but in that scene Don Diamont acted circles around Ronn Moss. I ignored Ronn Moss's horrid acting during the first 3 years of B&B because I loved the Ridge/Caroline storyline, but his acting just got worse as the 1990s went on and from what I saw in the scene hasn't really changed since then.

John McCook is no Eric Braeden. That scene totally made me think that Bill Bell named Eric Forrester after Eric Braeden.

Le HAWT----how freakin' gorgeous is Rick Hearst??

Very hot but he is married PJ. You cant have him.laugh.gifwink.gif I missed all of today's show. My local station was having trouble broadcasting the show and only aired the part where Jack Wagner character keeps closing the door on him. Which I thought was funny. Then they just showed the credits.

I cry that the only show he's like not been on is ATWT. I FLOVED his AM Spaulding. When the mags said he'd show up---I totally expected him to appear in a doorway at the end of the eppy. Color me happy he showed up at the beginning and jumped into the deep end of the pool.

How friggin' hot would he and Lesli Kay be??

LOL...I meant that literally. I really thought he'd have one or two lines at the end of the show. Instead he's right in the thick of it with Steph today, and there's a scene with Pam and Clark (or is it Nick) that's hilarious. Let's just say I suddenly want to be one of Pam's lemon bars. :lol:

Damn DumbBell for making me want to watch this drivel again.

    • 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.
