The transgender character was one of Bell's flash in the pans; he has no idea what to do with her.  Probably a Mulcahey story.  Now this whole new Spectra clan introduced. How many episodes will they actually be on. Perhaps, the new young Sally will get air play but the rest will be one 20 times in a year.  This show puts actor appearances on a severe budget so they can pay for all the trimmings, sets, location shoots.  They'd do well to diversify and have a few stories going. Bell's rarely been able to do that.

I don't care how good the one story is, that is just ridiculous. I wish it was like the 90s when you could ship characters back and forth. I still hate Brad Bell got sick of Lesli Kay and despite the crossovers they didn't make Felicia full-time on Y&R. I'd LOVE to see Maya and even Rick join Y&R at this point. Clearly B&B has no use for them and they're dynamite. I wonder at what point this year B&B will be good. They usually have a spark of 3-4 months of good storytelling.

Rick could easily work for Lauren's company now that Eric was on an episode with Lauren.

 

I don't care for Maya ever since she was made angel of the year. I miss Maya the b!tch.

So basically, a few characters on AAAAALLLLL the time, and the rest getting next to nothing. Good job, Bradley!

 

I guess he was busy focusing on that "new" family and had to keep the actual show as simple and easy as possible!

I think this is EXACTLY what happened. He was busy mapping out the Australia remote and setting up the new family. And probablysome other stuff for the big 3-0 jubilee. That's why the show was on auto-pilot in January with the "big" story around Steffy was wrapping up as well - as one of two stories, the other being Quinn and Ridge.

It would explain why the show has been so especially repetitive and monotonous lately. Although, one has to wonder: If you can't, or won't, handle both the Executive Producing and Headwriting duties equally as well, why don't you just let someone else write???

To be fair: this assessment leaves out the fact that Brad Bell has not been living in LA for the last 15 months or so. Production is handled solely by the other producers; Brad is in Budapest living with Colleen until she is released of her services which should be any day now with the Trump administration.

    • BH Diana is one of the biggest flops we have seen in any Housewives franchise. She's calling Sutton boring? Girl, take your bullsh*t elsewhere.  Diana also brings out a very ugly side of Kyle as she defended Diana....which of course is nothing new. Kyle gravitates towards money and power, ever the realtor's wife from the Valley...I'm sure once Mauricio has sold a listing that will be curtains for their friendship.
    • Victoria outscheming EVERYONE.  Finally.   Such an interesting story about all the men assuming that the poor little woman is clueless and incompetent.  Everyone having conversations about this. (Men assuming that "the poor little woman is incapable of making rational decisions for herself" is really reflecting society right now.)   And meanwhile she is secretly being the queen here and taking down Ashland in her own way and on her own terms, without being *rescued* by any man. They are so underestimating her! Destroy them all!
    • That's a very true point & a very scary estimation.
    • Seriously, given the resources they have, compared to GL at the end, I think they are much worse.
    • There were three of those "series". Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter One  Eight episodes Aug. 1 – Sept. 5, 2019 Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter Two Eight episodes Sept. 19 – Nov. 7, 2019 Last Blast Reunion (takes place in New York City) Eight episodes Nov. 29, 2019 – Jan. 16, 2020 They were on a special "app" called the "DOOLapp" and that app was available only in the US.  You had to have the app -- they couldn't be watched in a regular browser window. They weren't streaming, and they weren't podcasts, but they were sort of like that.  Some viewers referred to the episodes as "appisodes" for lack of a better term.  The show officially called it a "Digital Series".  Each episode was between 6 and 10 minutes long.  The first few were uploaded at once; and then one episode was uploaded each week thereafter. These series sort of had same concept as what Beyond Salem does now - Salem characters interacting outside of Salem. It was canon.  But if you only watched the main daytime show and never knew about the DOOLapp "appisodes", it wouldn't disrupt your continuity of watching the main daytime show. The characters of Chad and Abby had exited the main daytime show prior to this. They had left Salem and were living in Paris.   This was a quick way to check in with the characters without requiring a longterm taping commitment for the actors.  The episodes were so short that I think each "chapter" was filmed in a few days. They introduced the character of Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) for the very first time in  "Chad and Abby in Paris".  Li and Chad worked in the Paris office of DiMera Enterprises.   Later on, Hoffman debuted as Li on the main daytime show in April 2020. For the digital "Last Blast Reunion" in New York, they brought back several of the original actors from the Last Blast Dance teen crowd of old for a reunion - who hadn't been on the main daytime show in many many years. Including Jay Kenneth Johnson and Heather Lindell -- who came to the main daytime show later in 2020. In a different sort of carryover ...  the 2019 Chad and Abby in Paris apartment set was used for the first time for the main daytime show in 2020 -- the set was used briefly at various times when Salem characters were running from the police and went to France and hid out at the DiMera Paris apartment.
