Nick/Chelsea were staged well, but as exciting as watching paint dry lol

 

They are great as friends but soooooooooooo dull as a couple. Nick needs a vacation. 

 

Everyone looked fantastic today, and it was great to see so many in one room.

 

One question, why were Chloe and Kevin sitting with Vic/Nikki?

 

I just hope Mariah didn't jump to an assumption...

And cause JM has been begging for it for nigh on 3 years. 

 

Of course he has. Seriously the only relationship that's ever worked on-screen for him has been with Sharon and Sharon Case. I know he seemed to have some hard-on for Stafford, and her for him, but they were more like pals to me on-screen than anything. And in all honesty at this point I don't really want Sharon and Nick reunited anytime soon. They screwed it up the last time and it went downhill for Sharon even more afterwards. I'm kind of over that pairing but it's still been his best, which he doesn't seem to appreciate.

Honestly I wish we would hear of a cast purge soon... And please let MCE be included. Is it me or she talks much faster than anyone else on the show? It drives me crazy, it makes her character monotone.

I wish....MCE isn't the worst actress on the show but her character has run its course. She isn't going anywhere considering the recent spoilers about her and a new love interest.

It's not always about racism.

 

It is always about racism.

 

Choosing to wear blinders & swearing it isn't because it makes you uncomfortable to deal with is your problem.

 

And doing exactly that is why daytime soaps are dying & not coming back. :lol:

 If it's so he can be self made with his own publishing/media empire in 2 years then I won't hate it and will apologize to all and asunder for my valid distrust of this show.

 

This is a show that won't let Ivy league educated Neil have anything now.

LOL. No it's actually your problem. No one has blinders on, but you keep being you and insisting that everything under the sun is racially motivated. I should have known you wouldn't actually engage in a conversation. My mistake.

Thinking about today's episode (except for Nelsea, which I had to FF), it was the most cohesive episode yet - it showed a lot of the complicated relationship on the show without feeling like it was trying to introduce viewers to 'new' characters. 

 

The production and wardrobe was spot-on. This is what I expect from the Genoa City upper crust. They even had CG wearing appropriate evening attire, even though she was in a 'production' role. 

 

I think the Devon issue is endemic of what has happened to numerous characters on the show - we have no idea what they want! Obviously this is a huge undertaking and there's been progress with characters that have either been destroyed or neglected, such as Victor, Sharon, Hilary and even though they've been featured less, Phyllis and Lauren. But there is a lot of work to do (Abby, Neil, Billy, etc.) I'm happy with the overall direction considering the royal mess they got.

I think Nick and Chelsea could work as friends or a couple

If Michelle Stafford was available do u think they would fire GT and bring her back as phyllis

Not if they're smart and have taste.

 

Stafford can go back to doing shitty webshows no one watches when GH finally has the sense to dump her useless/man shoulders ass.

The teleprompter gag pretty much proves what I've been saying that this is humorous, if not impactful. It was funny and I giggled but it was never going to be a jaw-dropping moment, so it's good that they put this in the middle of the week, rather than trying to make it into a Friday episode.

 

Considering how sad previous formal events have looked, this one was decently done. Y&R having those big blockbuster events with dignitaries and countless extras can't be done at this point, so what they've produced was fine.

 

No blockbusters but SS and KA seem adept at doing small things really well. That moment where Hillary is trying to figure out the proper pronunciation of a French word and looks at Devon, who says that the group home where he lived didn't have French language courses was a good moment of recognition, that even though Devon may be wealthy now, he remembers the struggles of the past.  Hillary also had a similar moment recalling her Mother's struggle with alcoholism, without going into detail (although anyone familiar with her backstory, of course, knew what she meant).

 

Where's the heat between Nick and Chelsea?  I don't see it, I don't feel it. And the preview for the next episode, where Nick begs Chelsea to stay makes him look desperate and horny.

 

This was a pleasant episode with a little gotcha moment. I couldn't really find much objectionable about it.

I disagree. I think he and Phyllis were pretty hot for awhile. Obviously, that's subjective, but they had a big enough fanbase that I think it can be considered a successful pairing. I think JM could have chemistry with a lot of different people, but the writing hasn't supported that for the most part. I suppose part of it is they've tried to use Sharon Case to make various males work, so she's had more opportunity.
