Are we ever going to get to see Erica's finished penthouse?

Honestly, I could care less.

With that said, I doubt we'll see it any time soon. Doesn't Erica have a, um, non-penthouse oriented storyline coming up in a few days?

When Erica crashes in the wilderness and meets Caleb around the 24th?

They are ruining David. Ive enjoyed his realionship with Greenlee so far but they need to cut down this jealous and possessive direction they are going with him. Theres no need for him to go dark over her. It looks like they are already starting to throw him under the bus for Rylee. I notice that the writing for Ryan has gotten alot better recently and now David is lyign and scheming to make sure he stays away for Greenlee. Let me guess, Greens finds out, turns her back on David and runs back to Ryan all while David looks like the evil villian we should be hating here while rooting for the Rylee reunion.

Tad and Ryan....FF. Its bad enough they are now business associates, I dont need them to be friend, dishing about their personal lives together. What a horrible pair.

Im surrpised they mentioend Bailey and did something with her. I was expecting her to be killed off with Damon and Liza fighting for custody of Stuart

Really stupid of Erica to steal the documents of of Jack's desk...like he wouldn't figure out it was her!

I hate, too, that Erica would commit such acts. As a recovering drug addict and alcoholic, Erica should know better than to act so dishonestly.

Damon can keep his shirt ON.

Thank you.

I thought Broderick did a good job within the small amount of time. She has turned a very dark show to a more lighter tone show. She has re-established characters and I am glad she still will be apart of the writing team with D&D come.

Today was a little boring, imo.

I still love Jack & Erica, but it is ridiculous for her to steal the paperwork off his desk and not expect to catch holy hell from both him and Greenlee about it. I also was getting annoyed at Jack for trying to persuade Greenlee she should go back to Ryan.

I'm just not as invested in Amanda/Jake as I used to be. Maybe if she does go off the deep end, they'll get more interesting.

Leave it to Liza to try to manipulate Damon into leaving town to take care of his kid! I did like how Colby pointed out that he was treating Stuart the way he claimed Tad treated him. I also really liked Tad & Damon bonding at the casino.

I loved the cliffhanger with David demanding the truth from his wife. I hope Greenlee realizes she can trust him more than Ryan.

As far as Broderick's work overall, I'd rate it a B. She came on strong with Greenlee's marriage to David but then things slowed down quite a bit. I liked how Adam & Brooke slowly realized they still loved each other as JR & Annie fell into bed, but that story could have been stretched out longer. The Damon/Tad story is working for me. Bringing Janet back short term and having Amanda fear she could inherit the mental illness is a good idea. I didn't like how suddenly Adam & Tad both had an illegitimate son and how Angie suddenly started talking about a brother I don't remember. I do think she salvaged Tad & Ryan by making them fallible humans again instead of judgmental morons, but Jesse remains the biggest dipshit in town and she really didn't know how to write for Annie. So, she was a huge improvement over Pratt and now I'm hopeful that D&D can dig deeper into all the characters.

Greenlee doesn't seem to think she can trust David more then Ryan. She told Ryan she thought she might be pregnant. She doesn't want to deal with it with David. Seems pretty par for the course though.

La Kane looked amazing.

I'm WTFing David/Erica's scenes today. Nothing was off. It just...it was strange. She went from super bitch Erica, to scheming/playing on his insecurities Erica, to slightly genuine Erica, right back to crafty bitch. No idea what the hell that was. :blink:

Are you being glib? I only ask because Erica's done much more dishonest things while in recovery than steal a file.

    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he came from there. And given that he lived a somewhat-hermit-like existence (long winters do that to you) with a close friend, an ex-priest, I often wondered if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
    • Couldn't have said it better myself @titan1978. Reilly's run during most of the first half of the 90s was Must Watch TV. I used to watch with friends and almost every episode (especially the Friday cliff-hangers) gave us goose bumps while watching, there was so much going on and they were so exciting. And I'm not talking cheap-thrills exciting, I'm talking Sami going from problem child to villainess, Marlena and John struggling with their attraction to each other (which FYI had been established for at least two years before the incident on John's private jet!). People's relationships with each other across the cast of characters were being fleshed out with care, hitting all the marks, never rushed, but you always felt there was momentum in these relationships and you didn't always know where they were going. Reilly was invested in this gothicky little town of Salem -- where most scenes seemed to take place after sundown (!!) -- and the denizens. He clearly loved writing for Marlena and her torment as she tried to do the right thing while staying honest with herself, but I never felt the other characters were shortchanged. And Reilly really painted a picture of a community, with all the age groups represented. I have such happy memories of Days during this time -- a golden age for soaps in general, IMO, because TPTB put in the effort and seemed to care about the stories and characters. Like on Days TPTB seemed caught up in the whirl and excitement of certain SLs the way the viewers did.

    • Esme/Nik would be hilarious. The thought had never occurred to me, but I'm not against it. Anything would be more interesting than her pointlessly standing around in all of Spencer's scenes.
