Thank you so much for uploading! Loved 2000-2002 B&B.

 

Fun fact: this was around the time frame I noticed Katherine Kelly Lang had her face lift/blepharoplasty (there's a noticeable difference in her appearance between episodes 3614 and 3619).

 

These two images were taken within a month from each other.

I remember also wondering about that when I first saw the episodes from that time. I noticed that something was off with their face but I couldn't put my finger on it. She looked so different when marrying and divorcing Thorne and then during her affair with Deacon.

Brooke signed her annulment papers from Thorne in the morning and by the afternoon she was already trying to seduce Ridge. God, what a ho.

It was a very dumb move. They spent almost 2 years on Brooke & Thorne, building some kind of powerful love between them, making Thorne the "true love" of Brooke and a couple of months after the wedding they're divorced...

 

But this is how Bold rolls.  Even tho we didn't see a great love affair onscreen, Donna's break up with Justin was very soapy.  Tears and all...only to have her on a boat with Nick gazing into one another eyes 2 commercial breaks later.

I hated it, Brooke and Thorne actually were good together in spite of their past naughtiness.

 

 The reignited feud between Brooke & Taylor among other things led to the particularly  ill-times headlines of soap mags covering B&B at the time with headlines such as “Old Enemies Declare a New War!” and “B&B’s EXPLOSIVE Future” the week and week after 9/11. 
The leadtime with which the mags had been printed precluded any changes but it still was enough to attract some mainstream criticism at the time.

I wonder what, other than Brad's short attention span, prompted them to have Brooke so immediately go after Ridge. I'm not kidding, it's literally the same episode. She even slyly tells Thorne (within MINUTES of signing the annulment papers) she's going to and says it might hypothetically be good for the company. That is the most whiplashiest writing I've ever seen.

That plot twist totally threw me at the time. I thought Brooke had MUCH more chemistry with Thorne than Ridge. It was also the one time Thorne had a chance to shine as a character. her relationship with him was so different than the one she had with Ridge, too.

 

But, yep, within an episode their marriage ended, and she was lusting after Ridge for the millionth time!

As we had these episodes here in Finland (october 2002) local soap magazines had headlines like "Let the Ridge hunting begin!"

i just watched the episode where Brooke tells Ridge that she broke up with Thorne and she said they were married for 6 months. May be there where marrages that lasted less then that but i do not remember. 

 

Ivy and Liam's *marriage* lasted few days, but it's hard to call it a marriage

 CJ and Becky married few episodes before her death. Macy and Deacon's marriage lasted I think around 50 episodes before killing her off, Gaby and Thomas were also for a short run and Hope and Thomas's marriage was brief as well. Thank God Kristen and Tony went quickly MIA, because they are wonderful couple and I would hate to see them apart.

    • John Conboy interview Four-time Emmy winner John Conboy was named Executive Producer of Guiding Light in December of 2002. Previously, he produced Love is a Many Splendored Thing, The Young and the Restless and Santa Barbara, as well as created the Washington D.C.-based Capitol. Six months into his latest stint, Mr. Conboy sat down with SoapCity for his first ever exclusive chat outlining this award-winning visionary's plans for daytime's longest running drama. SoapCityAlina: After all that you've achieved in your career -- you are widely credited with changing the entire look of daytime drama -- the logical, first question is: Why GL? Why now? John Conboy: I watched the show for about five months, and the cast blew me away. (New head writer) Ellen Weston and I talked back and forth for a long time before I made the decision (to take the job). It was a fairly large decision for me to make because I live in California now. But when I got here, I was so astonished by the welcome that I got that I know I made the right choice. I love it. This was a lovely chance for me to, one, get back to New York, two, get back to CBS and three, work with Procter & Gamble for the first time. SCA: Fans seem to know what a writer does, what a director does, what a set designer does. But I think a lot of them wonder: what exactly does a producer do? What does it mean, your title, Executive Producer? JC: It means very little, as long as everybody else is doing what he or she needs to be doing. I'm their tour guide. I'm their leader. One of my jobs is to keep people working with me five days a week, 52 weeks a year and to keep them wanting to do it. SCA: I mentioned your changing the look of daytime. Y&R was the first show to feature a more youthful cast, not to mention brighter lighting, hipper clothes, flashier sets. Everything that we take for granted on daytime now, you pioneered. Do you have a vision for GL as well? JC: I don't think that my vision has changed. I do think that my taste has changed over the years, as far as coming into the 21st century and by my exposure to other things. But, at the end of the day, no matter how sharp you get the show to look, you're still talking about a love story. If you watch it carefully, most of what our people do on my shows, they do because they love someone. I'm not doing anything different on Guiding Light than I've done before. This is the style that I choose to do, and so I did come in and say (technically), "Let's do this." I have a lighting designer who is a genius. I have directors who were just waiting to get some stuff to do. And I have a brilliant cast. I said to all of them, "I am only as good as you are, so don't screw it up." I would love to do a movie a day on this show. I would love to have enough money to do the kind of production that I want on the show. Actually, because of the skill of the people we have on the show now, I'm very happy with the look of the show. I would love to go out to Niagara Falls, or sail to Europe, but if you tell a really good story, you could do it in my office. SCA: You said that you watched GL for five months before deciding to take the job. What did you see on-screen that you knew you needed to change as soon as you got here? JC: I think a lot of people who were on the scene needed stories, which they didn't have. That was my major concern. Now they've got them; they've got wonderful stories. The direction we are going in, everybody is going to be involved in one of the big stories coming up. Hopefully, we are going to involve all the adults and all of the younger people in the same story. I think it is important that you put your core characters with the younger people, so that they intermingle and work together. The baseball story that I'm doing with Shayne, for instance, is a story that so many mothers and fathers go through. I think it is going well. We're really going to play baseball and have some fun with it. And I think the Reva story is going to be huge. We have a big surprise on that story coming up. I'm also introducing another young character, a Latino boy. I'm looking forward to that introduction. And we are very excited about Bradley Cole being back. I think he's a terrific actor. He was enormously popular, we did a lot of research on him, and so we created another character that's working wonderfully on the show. SCA: How important is fan input to you? JC: Thank God we've got fans that have watched the show for a long time. There is an enormous history here, and the fans are the first ones who will tell us if we've got it right. Lots of fans write two or four times a week. One particular person will write several times, and they are very articulate. They know the show. They tell me what they like and they tell me what they don't like. Of course, I try not to give them what they like! SCA: That's certainly a very provocative statement! What does it mean? JC: It means that if you want it, and if I give it to you, then that story is over. When I was doing Y&R, we could keep stories going for years. Of course, the audience now is a different audience. We used to say it was the MTV audience. Now, God knows what kind of audience it is! But whatever it is, we need to keep them alive, bright and entertained. I want our audience to watch us five days a week. I want them to enjoy watching our stories as much we enjoy telling them!
