MAB made the same mistake all other soaps that have hired GF have made: they think the so-called "name value" alone will translate into huge ratings for their show, regardless of story. And if they had had a clear picture of Genevieve character from the get, that might have been okay. But MAB and her team clearly had no clue what to do with her -- or to put it another way, they didn't know how to write for GF -- and as a result, all the money they blew on her turned out to be a HUGE waste. Chances are, too, they'll have to do some major, major cost-cutting in order to recoup that financial loss. Ergo, if you can't stand how most of the show takes place in the GCAC dining room or Crimson Lights, well, you better sit down, kids.

I never thought, as an actress, that Sharon Case was all that and a bag of chips, though I thought she did some good work during Cassie's Death. And i don't know what she's like IRL so I am purely basing this on what I see on my TV screen. She has been given some major garbage to work with, and she''s turned lemons into lemonades. This current story is completely OOC and yet I am enjoying Sharon more than I have in years. I can't help rooting for her against those awful Newman tykes (including Adam, who has the nerve to get on his high horse with her) and just everybody in general. I know everybody hates the show and this SL, but I just wanted to say that I am impressed at SC for giving her all and making me enjoy her performance, despite everything else that is so wrong with the show.

Honestly, I'm not an SC stan, I'm just sayin'.

    • That set was awful. I hated the architecture of the house too. The characters were a bust with the writers not knowing what to do with them. In season one there are several episodes where they are not even shown or they are given few lines. I guess they are the Chris & Tracy Partridge of Knots Landing....

    • Thanks for all the info. I did not know about some of that. That explains when Sue Ellen did her movie, she did not include Pam. I figured she would have the them do the scene of when J.R. caused her to fall that caused the miscarriage or show the flashback of it. Victoria was right to leave if they were not willing to pay her the same rate as Duffy. She got screwed because of Duffy leaving and then he gets paid the big bucks to return. I have come to dislike the Bobby character somewhat. Duffy seemed to get more smarmy/hammy as the show progressed, especially after his return. I always hated how Bobby threw Pam under the bus where Jenna was concerned. Even in the first year, Bobby would drop everything for Jenna and then acted like Pam was being ridiculous when she was a bit jealous. They resolved Charly was not Bobby's in that episode, but then when Jenna returned, they started that crap all over again. I might have cared if Fairchild had returned to the role and it was better written, but Presley did not impress me enough to care about Jenna.  I also thought it was a mistake to kill off Kristin so fast. She could have driven story for years. Since they did kill her off, they should have had baby Christopher to really be J.R.'s and have Bobby and Pam keep the secret for years. Maybe have little Christopher start to exhibit devious tendencies as he started to grow up. 
    • I’m not watching but people are saying the Muchova/Sabalenka match is great.
    • I think we're nearer the tipping point where SCOTUS will have to finally be overhauled, tbh. It will take time but it's rattled the general public.
    • Was she up for the part Julia Stiles got, I wonder? Dexter's equally crazy mate? I'd assume so. Claudia and Johnny were weirdly intimate together from the jump (and again, I felt it suited the very gothic characters) so I'm not sure I fully agree with that complaint, though I can understand not wanting it to be made more textual. I've seen too many women like Sarah Brown dismissed as crazy or irrational over the years only to be vindicated through the passage of time. So I'm sure Sarah has a lot of very valid and true complaints about her ordeals with her ex, some of her work at GH, etc. But I'm not sure what she wanted Jackie or others to do, or about what instance specifically.
