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.

 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.

Yep, her and GT!

 

 

 

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.

    • Most networks were thinking about getting out of soaps at that time and Passion was the first that went, then Guiding Light and As The World Turns, then of course One Life To Live and All My Children. The truth is that General Hospital was next to go if they hadn't seen that the replacements weren't doing well (I think NBC ultimately ended up giving up Passions time slot to affliaties, but I might be wrong) and that's what's so far kept the remaining soaps on air. They know if they lift them off at this point they'll not only get replacements doing worse, but also likely affect the rest of the remaining daytime line up negatively. I assume they've figured the remaining soaps DO have a unique audience that won't tune in unless there's a soap on air.

    • Well I definitely applaud them. Yes, they could have done much much better at least with one of them storylines. But the messages were never lost on me. I was more than touched by Stuart and Lily. @j swift what did you feel about Spike storyline? I remember being so happy they were giving that to one of Erica’s grandchildren.    Stuart portrayal was like a combination of many different types of disorders imo. He represented to me a lot of the fredo Corleone’s of the world. He was so relatable, I saw so many people I knew in him.  I saw some of myself in Stuart, he inspired me, gave me hope too. I’m sure Agnes could have done a better job at giving him a clear illness, I’m fine with the way things played out though. I have a cousin who is kinda special needs(not sure if that’s the right term, my apologies if it isn’t) and he has went on to have many relationships and have children. I don’t believe he’s capable of taking care of himself or the children, but he has them.   I do agree with you, about these missed opportunities, especially with Lily and Jonathan. Do you think every social issue or Character driven storyline is soapy enough, to be told?!     Are you guys excited to hear Wisner Washam new interview?   
    • I strongly doubt  Valentini,  Van Etten and O'Conner know who Conner is. Conner was a fairly obscure character to begin with.
    • Speaking of passions, How exactly did that show get cancelled. I know it was dead last but it did well in the demos they want.
